Cindy Crawford Shares The 6 Words That Have Always Helped Her Make Tough Decisions (VIDEO)
Just before supermodel and entrepreneur Cindy Crawford married her second husband, Rande Gerber, in 1998, the couple met with their minister to discuss the ceremony they envisioned for their beach wedding. Gerber insisted on a short ceremony, so the minister had to edit the traditional vows. To determine what the bride and groom most wanted to keep, he asked a question that Crawford has never forgotten.

“What do you need to hear to feel married?” the minister had asked.

Crawford surprised herself when she didn’t even hesitate with her response. “I knew I wanted to hear, ‘I now pronounce you husband and wife,'” she remembers.

Asking, “What do I need to hear?” quickly became the foundation for helping Crawford make difficult decisions.

Reflecting on that question with regards to her own wedding, Crawford was able to realize that her first marriage to Richard Gere in Las Vegas played a role in her immediate response to the minister’s question. “We didn’t have that moment where we presented ourselves to our family and friends and [said], ‘We are now a married couple,'” Crawford explains. “So, for me, that moment was so important to make it feel real.”

Over the years, asking herself, “What do I need to hear?” has helped guide Crawford in other personal ways. For example, when she was 20 weeks pregnant with her first child, her doctor asked if she wanted to learn the sex of the baby. Crawford realized that she didn’t need to hear the gender; rather, she needed to hear and experience the excitement that comes with finding out once the baby is born.

“I knew what I needed to hear in that moment,” Crawford says. “The question can be used in all sorts of ways.”

Cindy Crawford shares four more life-changing questions she encourages all women to ask themselves during a special “Oprah’s Lifeclass” event. Watch the full episode.

Daily Meditation: Your Inner Life
We all need help maintaining our personal spiritual practice. We hope that these daily meditations, prayers and mindful awareness exercises can be part of bringing spirituality alive in your life.

Today’s meditation features a contemplative and self-affirming poem by early 20th century poet Robert William Service. The piece teaches that when we cultivate a strong inner life, nothing can knock us over.

My Inner Life by Robert William Service

‘Tis true my garments threadbare are,
And sorry poor I seem;
But inly I am richer far
Than any poet’s dream.
For I’ve a hidden life no one
Can ever hope to see;
A sacred sanctuary none
May share with me.

Aloof I stand from out the strife,
Within my heart a song;
By virtue of my inner life
I to myself belong.
Against man-ruling I rebel,
Yet do not fear defeat,
For to my secret citadel
I may retreat.

Oh you who have an inner life
Beyond this dismal day
With wars and evil rumours rife,
Go blessedly your way.
Your refuge hold inviolate;
Unto yourself be true,
And shield serene from sordid fate
The Real You.

What Your Camera Phone Photos Say About You (VIDEO)
Award-winning filmmaker and time-lapse photographer Louie Schwartzberg is rarely without his camera. His favorite subject is nature, capturing everything from the stunning transformation of vibrant flowers in bloom to the rarely seen aerial acrobatics of a tiny hummingbird. For Schwartzberg, his images represent the deepest part of his soul — and you don’t have to be a professional photographer to capture that same essence.

When speaking with Oprah on an episode of “Super Soul Sunday” about his love of nature and the soul behind his work, Schwartzberg shares his thoughts about the power of camera phones. “What’s great is we have these phones and we can capture [our souls] at any moment,” he says.

Viewing the sequence of your photos, Schwartzberg says, is just as revealing as the content in each individual picture. “It almost becomes like breadcrumbs on a trail,” he says. “What’s beautiful is to look back and ask yourself, ‘Can I feel that same emotion that I felt at the time I took that photo?'”

In many cases, the answer may be a surprising “no,” Schwartzberg says. “Guess what? You’ve changed since you took that photo. Could have been a day ago, could have been a year ago,” he tells Oprah. “You can measure how you’ve grown and how you’ve evolved over time.”

“By what’s important to you?” Oprah says.

“Exactly,” he responds.

“Super Soul Sunday” airs Sundays at 11 a.m. ET on OWN.
