Last month I completed a 21 Day Abundance Meditation challenge lead by Deepak Chopra himself! I found it so great that I want to sing it’s praises and share all the value with you today..
Now it’s unlikely you’d be wondering who Deepak Chopra is, but if for some reason you haven’t heard his name being thrown around in conversations about spirituality, alternative medicine, Eastern philosophy, read about him, seen him on TV, watched one of his videos online, heard movie references or even seen an image with one of his inspirational quotes over it on the internet –breath- then let me do a quick intro.
Chopra (Indian born American) is the man who basically brought the Eastern outlook to the west and helped create this New Age movement we’re experiencing today. He’s a M.D, clinical professor, author of over 90 books (numerous are New York Times Best Sellers, translated in 43 languages and has sold over 10 million of copies worldwide), founder of The Chopra Foundation, a non-profit for research on humanitarianism and well-being, The Chopra Center, a world famous healing centre and Chopra Global, a modern-day health company intertwining science and spirituality. He’s a true icon of our time and has become one of the best-know (and wealthiest) figures in alternative medicine and personal transformation. I could go on forever about him, with his impressive bio and what he’s done for humanity but that wouldn’t leave me much room to talk about this 21 Day Abundance Meditation he challenged the world to take part in.
A little over 21 days ago, a friend invited me to take the challenge over WhatsApp. Needless to say, I didn’t need much convincing when she dropped Deepak’s name. A WhatsApp group was created and day by day she would forward on the short mediations, no longer than 15 minutes of philosophy and a guided meditation combined, along with a daily challenge and the optional exercises to do in a journal that had been forwarded onto her. We would do a daily check-in and tick off the days as we went for accountability and support.
Over the next 3 weeks we were taken on a journey of stillness and silence to experience authentic abundance consciousness. We focused on all the different aspects of abundance and in the first week we unlocked unlimited potential as we learnt what true abundance is, where it comes from, how consciousness and the mind affect it’s flow and how we can more deeply understand that abundance is a divine right.
The second week shows how abundance relates to the 7 spiritual laws of success, beginning with the law of pure potentiality, what exactly is possible and ending with the law of Karma – how to increase abundance in our lives by serving humanity with our unique skill and talents.
Week three contemplates the practical aspects of abundance through living in abundance and our natural state of being. During this time we explore the concept of synchronicity, consciously manifesting our destinies by harnessing the power of intention and meaningful coincidence. He also talks about the importance of living gratefully in a manner that is carefree, with love and in unity, to create an environment of abundance around us.
So what is true abundance? We’re not just talking about abundance in the sense of money. Chopra says that “true abundance is the experience in which all our needs are easily met and our desires are spontaneously fulfilled. We know true abundance when we feel joy, health, happiness, a sense of purpose and vitality in every moment of our existence.”
It takes 21 days to break or form a habit and I must say I became somewhat addicted to his meditations and couldn’t wait for the next lesson. I’m even going through it again to see what I find a second time around and keeping the material to come back to in different stages of my life. I’m feeling happier, more at peace and truly more abundant is all aspects of life and would love to share this gift with you too!
If you would like to receive this gift and also go on this beautiful journey with Deepak Chopra, please respond to this by email or message me directly on WhatsApp (+852 68750732) so I can send you all the material that will lead you further on your path to an abundant, happier life.
For now, I will leave you with day one’s centring thought – ‘Today, I behold all the abundance that surrounds me.’
