The Spontaneous Fulfillment of Desire: Harnessing the Infinite Power of Coincidence By Deepak Chopra

by

The beauty of this book is not in just the artistic cover.  Deepak colorfully describes the feelings and experiences that so many of us hope to achieve.  The Spontaneous Fulfillment of Desire focuses on coincidences, miracles, and what Deepak describes as syncrodestinySyncrodestiny is “When you live your life with an appreciation of coincidences and their meanings, you connect with the underlying field of infinite possibilities.  This is when the magic begins.” (Chopra 21).
 
How many times have we prayed, hoped, and pleaded for a miracle or ‘just something to work’?  It is expected, especially while trying to conceive, to hope for an external force to support our endeavors.  Whether this is by some miraculous event attributed to faith, a coincidence, or universal intelligence, Deepak claims that there is a method to opening ourselves up to the potential for greatness, therein making these events more likely to occur.  Tapping into a universal vibration via meditation, mantra, and sutra, Deepak guides us through the necessary steps to open our minds and hearts to a universe of potential.
 
If you are looking for just a little more support and would like to explore the power of syncrodestiny, I highly recommend this book!  It is very accessible, and empowering.
This book can be purchased in our CNY Fertility and CNY Healing Arts locations.
 
Don’t stand by my grave and weep,
For I am not there.
I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond’s glint on snow,
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn’s rain.
In the soft bush of the morning light
I am the swift bird in flight.
Don’t stand by my grave and cry,
I am not there,
I did not die.
-Unknown Native American Author
(Chopra 262)

Modern-Day Miracles by Louise L. Hay

by


Modern-Day Miracles is a fascinating compilation of testimonials, exercises, and positive affirmations.  This is a great book for moments of doubt, and times when we need some extra confidence.  Hearing from many people’s perspectives on the power of positive thinking and affirmations, ignites an interest that there may truly be something to this practice.
Louise L. Hay has created a following of believers, and many of them have miraculous stories to share.  Their stories range from recovering from disease, to healing addictions.  Positive affirmations have a place in the world of fertility, and they may offer a new and hopeful perspective to a cycle.
Here is one of Louise’s activities, taken from page 156:
Your Critical Self

Criticism breaks down the inner spirit but never changes a thing.  Praise builds up the spirit and can bring about positive change.  Write down two ways in which you criticize yourself in the area of love in intimacy.  Perhaps you’re not able to tell people how you feel or what you need.  Maybe you have a fear of commitment, or you tend to attract partners who hurt you.
After each of your perceived faults, think of something you can praise yourself for in this area.

I Love Myself
At the top of your piece of paper or your journal, write:  I love myself; therefore…
Finish this sentence in as many ways as you can.  Read it over daily, and add to it as you think of new things.  If you can work with a partner, do so.  Hold hands and alternate saying, “I love myself; therefore…”  The greatest benefit of doing this exercise is that it is almost impossible to belittle yourself when you say that you love yourself.
