“I start my day with a few reflections and intentions,” Chopra said to FOX Business’ Maria Bartiromo on Friday. “The joyful energetic body, love and compassion in the heart, clarity of mind, likeness of being. Then I [expanded] on that and somehow Alexa picked it up.”

“I think that technology is going to be the next phase of our revolution for higher consciousness,” he said.
