A few weeks ago, a friend of mine texted me and asked if I wanted to participate in a meditation challenge. I thought, "Ooo! This is a great opportunity. It's the first week of shelter in place due to COVID-19, and I certainly have the time to commit to it!" I must admit that this was not the first opportunity I had to participate in the challenge. Another friend extended a similar invitation a few months prior, but I politely declined. I felt blocked by fear. My thoughts were mostly negative- "I'm not ready. I'm not good at meditation. This will be too hard for me. My thinking brain doesn't turn off…I've tried. Maybe I’ll try some other time."
Meditation has always interested me but after a few scattered, failed attempts, I had not returned to the practice in quite some time. This time felt different, almost like divine timing as I was participating in a course on abundance (Shift from a Scarcity to an Abundance Mindset by Sah D'Simone). I was actively exploring meditation again with more comfort than before. This time I felt confident to say, "Yes, I'd love to do the challenge. Thank you for inviting me!" Off we went!
It was a beautiful 21 days filled with spiritual growth, identifying and challenging my blocks head on, dedication and commitment, and being gentle with myself. I invite you to participate in the meditation challenge! Follow along, share it with your loved ones, and experience the many benefits meditation has to offer for your body, mind, and spirit.
(Note: This is the information as it was presented to me from my group leader and so forth.)
"This is Deepak Chopra's 21 Days of Abundance Meditation Program. The exercises are powerful, and exactly what one might naturally do in order to create what they want. Deepak breaks it down in the simple way only he can!
This program is meant to support you in cultivating the habit of abundance. Likewise, it will be intentional, powerful, and prosperous!
I am only a conduit of information and intentions as prescribed by Deepak Chopra’s program. The tasks are shared exactly as provided by the program. The goal is to get to know yourself better, change/clarify beliefs and attitudes. As you may already know, studies show it takes 21 days to form a new habit.
-10 minutes for the meditation at a convenient time
-15-30 minutes to complete the task of the day.
Participating in this practice will also support you in realizing your blocks, fears and limiting beliefs in the area of abundance. As we realize these blocks, we can then actively work to heal them by opening up an infinite source of abundance.
*Day 0 Phrase:*
“Starting today, I constantly attract abundance with my thoughts”
I recommend writing the phrase in a notebook and return to it several times, the more the better. Mahatma Gandhi taught us to remember our thoughts generate words, words generate actions, actions generate habits, habits generate character, and character breeds destiny.
That's all for today. Tomorrow we start 21 Days of Abundance! Thank you for your open heart and commitment. Namaste.
