Post-Oprah Post (From The Sky)

April 2, 2012

Would I wear anything else to be with Oprah?

Hi. It’s me. Writing to you from the sky. Again. 

Headed home to LA after a whirlwind week back east. (Next Wednesday is Atlanta where I will be with Dr. Wayne Dyer and Anita Moorjani and my sister.)

I postponed my flight and changed departing cities so I could attend Oprah’s LifeClass today in NYC at Radio City Music Hall after I was given tickets by Oprah’s VP!

I cannot wait to fill a room like this! Today at Radio City with Oprah.

I sat with Elise Ballard who also writes for Positively Positive and is a life-force! A gorgeous life-force. She just wrote a best selling book called Epiphany and will soon be doing a guest post on this very blog! We just met but, as she so aptly put it, she no longer meets strangers. Nor do I. Everyone I connect with lately is an old friend.

Isn’t that a beautiful thought? Everyone you meet is an old friend already?

I am so on purpose that there are no accidents anymore.

Out front of Radio City Music Hall, we met up with Positively Positive’s Eric Handler who happens to be on tour with Oprah right now to get our tickets. He was wearing my blue Manifestation bracelet!

Eric Handler who started Positively Positive wears his blue Manifestation bracelet. He's on tour with Oprah right now. I am so honored to be part of the fam and that he wears my band! Manifest baby!

So yea, today was great.

I mean, really really great.

Elise and I had a ball. She had to translate for me a lot but she was a sport about it. Even with my hearing aids and the speakers, it was hard for me. Especially when Deepak Chopra spoke for some reason.

In the last hour my mom’s been emailing me to say how awesome Tony Robbins LifeClass was (his was the later LifeClass and I chose Deepak’s.) I started to feel like I made the wrong choice. A thing I do a lot and am working on.

Second guessing myself and thinking I made the wrong choice.

Yea, that’s my story. Hush. I know.

I watched Oprah’s LifeClass the other day with Iyanla Vanzant and had my heart cracked open. I watched it online with headphones.

And then it hit me. As I sat here on the plane. The reason today did not feel as powerful was because I couldn’t effing hear!

When I watch it online or on tv I can have headphones or use subtitles but today I felt lost and stupid at times.


I didn’t make the wrong choice by picking Deepak’s LifeClass. It wasn’t the class. It was ME.

There was this moment at the end when Oprah was giving a speech and she did it twice. One was miked so we could hear and the other was just for the camera so it looked like she was just moving her lips onstage.

The second time she gave the speech, the audience was very quiet. We all just watched her up there as one does when Oprah is in the room. You just watch. And admire.

I turned to Elise and said Wow, this is such a profound moment for me. All 5,000 people in here can feel what it’s like to be me.

You could see Oprah and hear her faintly. Like a whisper. And you could see her arms move, her body language. But you couldn’t really get what she was saying. Not fully. It was as if she had lost her voice or we all had cotton in our ears.

It was an interesting moment and I have never quite had an experience like that.

All of a sudden, after struggling for most of the LifeClass, I didn’t feel so alone.

It was like she did it for me.

My mom just emailed me: Jen, don’t go into your story.

(How cute is my mom? Need to get her blogging soon!)

That came up again today in the LifeClass. The Story.

I am re-writing my story as we speak.

In the sky. In a chair in the sky next to a man who has just told me his whole story.

Stay tuned for my epiphany….

(Thank you Elise Ballard for that idea!)

Elise Ballard and I when Oprah first walked out. Look how happy we are! Check her out on Positively Positive too!

From Today’s LifeClass:

“If you want to be happy, make someone else happy. If you want to find the right person in your life, be the right person. If you want to see change in the world, become the change you want to see.” – Deepak Chopra

“The past is gone. The future is not here now. I am free of both. Right now I choose JOY.” Deepak Chopra‘s prayer for times of crisis.

Eric Handler, the mastermind behind Positively Positive, and I outside of Radio City Music Hall. I adore him

I admire Oprah so much for what she is doing. This LifeClass is really something spectacular. She is a visionary. Truly. What is going down in the LifeClass with all the interactive stuff is mind blowing.

I love seeing social media being used for such inspirational purposes.

To see all these people tweeting whether or not they live with an open heart or about their pain gives me goosebumps of the third kind. Like Close Encounters of the Third Kind but different.

Oprah is as I thought she would be. She is like an old friend. Isn’t that how we all feel? Like we actually know her? She is charismatic and strong and confident, and hot damn, she looked good.

Thank you Oprah and Harpo and Postively Positive for allowing me to be part of that magic today.

The more I live in the NOW, as Deepak spoke about, the more connected I become. The more alive, the more me, the more present. The more Love.

Don’t we all want to be love embodied anyway?

The great irony in what Oprah is doing with all this tweeting and social media is that she is having us actually connect more. She is asking us to look closer.

What has disconnected us is now bringing us closer. Thank you LifeClass.

    I love that you made those realizations about yourself and that you realized they were part of your ‘story.’ Especially in light of the Iyanla LifeClass and her epiphanies about how we are so often tied to our own stories and that is the source of our pain or stuck-ness (I know – not a word).

    Thank you for sharing. Journey mercies!

    I love you, Jen! What an amazing experience and it was even more so to get to experience with you! And I want to hear that epiphany soon, por favor! xoxo
