The Secret to Unlimited Abundance By Deepak Chopra
There is an ancient Vedic story about a young man who went in search of the secret of abundance. For many months he traveled through the countryside until one day deep in the forest he met a spiritual master and asked him if he knew the key to having unlimited wealth and riches.

The spiritual master answered, “In the heart of every human being there are two goddesses: Lakshmi, the Goddess of Wealth, is generous and beautiful. If you worship her, she may bestow you with treasures and riches, but she is capricious and may also withdraw her support without warning. The other goddess is Saraswati, the Goddess of Wisdom. If you venerate Saraswati and dedicate yourself to attaining wisdom, Lakshmi will become jealous and pay more attention to you. The more you seek wisdom, the more fervently Lakshmi will chase you, showering you with wealth and abundance.”

While many people spend their lives pursuing Lakshmi – money, fancy homes, luxury cars, and other symbols of wealth – true abundance isn’t about getting your ego’s wish list met in a timely manner; it’s knowing that who you really are is pure consciousness, pure potentiality. Your sense of self expands beyond your identification with the ego mind and physical body and you awaken to your essential spiritual nature. In this state of expanded awareness, you let go of limiting beliefs and fears, allowing the infinite field of intelligence to fulfill your needs and desires with effortless ease.

In our present economic climate, the mass hypnosis of fear and scarcity can be almost irresistible. Instead of depleting your mental energies with worry, focus on cultivating spiritual wealth, enthusiasm, and your desire to fulfill your potential. How do you do this? By meditating, connecting to your true nature, seeking wisdom, and practicing what I refer to as The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success. These are the universal laws of consciousness that govern every creative process – from the birth of a baby to the birth of a galaxy. When you align yourself in harmony with these cosmic laws, you become the abundance that is inherent in life.

Abundance can arrive in the form of friendships, wisdom, money, creative expression, good health, loving relationships, mental energy and enthusiasm, peace of mind, and in infinite other ways. But however wealth manifests, the point is that these effects are the spontaneous outgrowths of inner spiritual awakening; they are not sought after for their own sake. Money, achievements, accolades – all of these are byproducts of life’s true gift: the unfolding of your inner divinity.

Why my “OWN” vote goes to Lilou
I love me some Oprah! Honestly, the only shows of hers that I don’t enjoy are the ones featuring big stars. Boring! I like the shows where you get your eyes and soul ripped open about some heart-wrenching, very important issue and realize, “Holy crap! If I did this one thing, I could save a life!” Or you hear about some insanely awesome triumph pulled off by someone much, much, much worse off than yourself and you bawl on the couch and go, “Oh my goodness, I need to get off my ass and embrace life for crying out loud!” I like to be moved and inspired. Oprah moves and inspires me. I really want to figure out a way to get on her show before it ends after next season. It’s a goal of sorts. So you might expect the next paragraph to be selfish. Surprise! It’s not!

A must read blog! http://lifeandtimesofstella.com/

Talk about a light bulb moment. When I heard that Oprah was looking online to find a star for her new Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN), my mind cast a white-hot spotlight on one person: Lilou Mace. I’ve never met her in person, but have come to know her online as one of the more than 3.5 million viewers of her inspirational YouTube videos. Since 2006, Lilou has invited people around the world to put the power of spiritual laws to work in their own lives. This woman lives her passion and dreams big--and her very focused goal is to empower us all of us to do the same.


WHY LILOU MACE DESERVES HER “OWN” SHOW: Spiritual YouTube Star Crosses Atlantic to Pursue Oprah-Inspired Dream
By Amber Hescock Johnson (picture of Amber with her daughter Stella)

I discovered Lilou a few years ago during a bout of depression. Longing for inspiration, I actually visited YouTube and entered “Oprah” as a search term. That search led me directly to Lilou’s popular YouTube channel. It was no coincidence. I was immediately engaged and energized, and began taking part in Lilou’s “100 Day Challenge.” Challenge participants are encouraged to live out the laws of attraction for 100 days and share their ensuing discoveries on YouTube. This online community is just one of many efforts that Lilou has undertaken in order to bring about positive change in the world—the very change that Oprah and many of her expert guests, such as Eckhart Tolle, are helping to spark.

Watch Lilou’s OWN network audition video. The first thing you notice is her energy—it’s boundless and magnetic. And then perhaps, you’ll note the charming touch of a French accent. But her spirit and dreams are all-American. Lilou’s an American-born internet phenomenon, and after living in Europe for two years, she’s uprooted her life and relocated to her previous home in Chicago for the purpose of pursuing her ultimate American dream. Swapping continents just to apply for a dream job may sound dramatic, but this type of dedication is absolutely typical for Lilou.

Lilou explains the crystal clear vision that drives her: “My big dream is to host an international spiritual reality talk show on the Oprah Winfrey Network and empower millions of people each day.” She continues, “I want us to explore our potential and higher selves while unlocking spiritual secrets, having fun, and growing together. I know we can bring a huge wave of change on the planet.”

Lilou’s very personal, open journey has been played out on YouTube for seekers of inspiration to enjoy. Incredibly, Lilou’s growing online legacy includes 1000 video blogs, honestly disclosing her personal challenges and triumphs, and 500 interviews with top spiritual teachers including Debbie Ford, Don Miguel Ruiz, Deepak Chopra, John Demartini, and John Gray. Lilou says, “My intention to now take it to new level.”

What I find most impressive about Lilou is not all of the big names she’s managed to attract into her work. What I admire most is that in pursuit of her goals, Lilou has not simply waited around for opportunity. Fueled by bottomless passion, this unstoppable woman has created and seized it at every turn: by building a huge online audience devoted to living the best life possible, hosting her own daytime cable talk show in Chicago, and turning job loss into not only a positive, but a platform for her self-published book: I Lost My Job and I Liked It. Lilou doesn’t just talk about living fully, being in touch with your spirit, and taking action to achieve one’s dreams—that’s how she lives her life each day and it’s why she has such universal appeal. Lilou’s authenticity and determination explain why people of all ages, backgrounds and nationalities continue to be drawn to her.

Naturally, Oprah has been Lilou’s biggest inspiration and hero. In 2006, after one of her electrifying experiences as a member of Oprah’s studio audience, Lilou was compelled to write down her illuminated vision. On a photograph taken at Harpo Studios that day, Lilou wrote, "My dream is to have my own morning TV show and empower millions." powerful statement aligns perfectly with the opportunity currently presented by Oprah to the world. Again, this is no coincidence. It’s meant to be.

If Lilou and her fans’ shared vision unfolds, her “OWN morning TV show” is exactly what Lilou will manifest. We’ll all be lifted up by her dream, closer to our own potential as Lilou embraces her own.

She is currently seeking a publisher for a book about her first year of motherhood, focused on her battle with postpartum anxiety and trials with breastfeeding, bottle feeding, spoon feeding and even nasogastric tube feeding due to her daughter’s feeding aversion—and why, despite it all, she urges all moms to stop worrying so much.

About Junk Style Diva :
"On the outside I look like a very together hip, chick but I live with a mild case of O.C.D. (obsessive compulsive disorder) and there are times it tries to rule my life, depending on my stress level. I keep a sense of humor when I am not obsessing about things and see my ocd as a quirky part of my personality. I think we all are a little kooky and to be considered normal is boring!"

The journey commences, ceaseless quest, never firing of discovery
Reaching a destination does not mean an arriving, but rather coming to a new starting point. The mind looks beyond and discovers that, past the boundary, limit no longer has any meaning. So, every beginning soon becomes an end and every end is already a new beginning. Unending revelation, wherever freedome dares to go.

Set off the worls, seek yourself; Get out on the road and reach beyond your limits; following a path that leads through new awareness to open a passage to reality, to an entirely personal inner world. A remarkable journey of the soul, with a destination that is not longer a placen but a new way of seing things.
