Life’s hustle and bustle can sometimes leave us feeling overwhelmed, right? Well, a friend of mine – bless their thoughtful soul – in 2020, introduced me to a game-changing resource that not only jump-started my meditation practice but also infused my days with newfound inner peace. Some of you may have tried it: it’s Deepak Chopra’s “21 Days of Abundance.” So, let me take you on a friendly journey through how this 21-day program transformed my perspective on meditation, gave me discipline and opened the door to implementing this practice into my life.
A friendly Nudge
Let me tell you about my friend, Alexandra. Alexandra has this incredible capacity for discovering life-enhancing gems and sharing them with everyone she knows. One day, out of the blue, I received a message from Alexandra (she added me to a whatsapp group) to start Deepak Chopra’s “21 Days of Abundance” program. The message was long but resonated with me immediately. Little did I know, this friendly nudge would be the start of something truly transformative.
“Meditation is not a way of making your mind quiet. It is a way of entering into the quiet that is already there.” —Deepak Chopra
I’d always been intrigued by meditation, like peeking through a curtain into a world of calm and tranquility. I had been contemplating implementing meditation in my life for a while, especially as everyone I admire talked about it, but didn’t know how to start. Thoughts of sitting cross-legged for hours or attempting to silence my ever-chatty mind were a bit intimidating, to say the least. Yet, there was a yearning in me for that inner zen, and the timing just felt right.
Days 1 to 7: Setting the Stage
On day 0, you sort of agree to take part in the program, but on day one, as soon as I clicked on the first audio file, I was greeted by Deepak Chopra’s soothing voice. The first week focused on planting the seeds of abundance consciousness – wrapping my head around the idea that abundance isn’t just about wealth, but also about love, kindness, and gratitude. Each day, I’d receive a long message with an exercice to write in a notebook, followed by a guided meditation by Deepak Chopra that lasted about 15 minutes.
I found myself sitting in a cozy corner, eyes closed, and heart open, as I was gently guided into a world of introspection. He encouraged us to acknowledge the blessings we already have and express gratitude for them. This wasn’t just about saying “thank you” – it was about feeling the gratitude deep within. From this day on, I’ve been practicing gratitude on a daily basis, and the journey has truly be life-changing.
Days 8 to 14: Expanding Horizons
By the second week, I was hooked. The meditations felt like a comforting ritual, a pocket of time dedicated solely to self-care and reflection. With each passing day, I felt myself expanding, shedding limiting beliefs, and embracing new perspectives. The meditations were about embracing opportunities, nurturing relationships, and trusting that the universe had a plan for each of us.
As I embraced this mindset, I found myself taking chances I would have hesitated about before. I explored new hobbies, started changing into who I really want to be and let go of old grudges. It was like the universe was giving me a friendly nudge, saying, “Hey, go ahead, abundance is waiting for you!”
Days 15 to 21: A Radiant Transformation
The final stretch of the challenge was a true crescendo. Deepak’s wisdom guided me through meditations focused on health, wealth, and joy. I was learning to embody abundance in every facet of my life. The real magic, though, was in how this newfound abundance mindset spilled over into my daily life.
Where there used to be stress, there was now a calm knowing that everything would work out. Where there used to be self-doubt, there was now a confidence in my own worth. And where there used to be routine, there was now a vibrant appreciation for the little joys that surrounded me.
“In the process of letting go you will lose many things from the past, but you will find yourself. It will be a permanent Self, rooted in awareness and creativity. Once you have captured this, you have captured the world.” —Deepak Chopra
A Heartfelt Transformation
So, here I am, a humble wanderer on the path of self-discovery, sharing my experience with you. Deepak Chopra’s “21 Days of Abundance” didn’t just introduce me to meditation; it gifted me a treasure trove of insights that continue to shape my journey.
