Today, as I listened to Day 3 of Deepak & Oprah’s free (I love free!) meditation series on gratitude, Deepak made a statement that stopped me in my tracks:
“The good things in your life show that abundance has included you.”
Shut out of Abundance
I realized that, although I DO believe Deepak’s words now, it was not always so. For years, I felt everyone else had everything they wanted, but somehow I had been excluded.
- – I couldn’t feel safe in my home, but of course everybody else did, right?
- – I couldn’t make a romance last forever, but everybody else could, right? I mean, look at the fairy tales!!
– I couldn’t stop my own drugging, drinking and sleeping around — those were things nobody else did, right?
So apparently, I was basically a bad person doing bad stuff who didn’t deserve good things. Although I thought I had been denied abundance, I couldn’t have been more wrong!
Abundance to the Max!
After embarking on a vigorous program of spiritual practice, recovery, and therapy, I can honestly say that for several years now, I’ve been living the life of my dreams.
I’m happily married–30 years this May; just published an award-winning book; spend the winters away from the cold; and even though advancing in my years, I still enjoy golf and time with my husband, family, and a multitude of dear friends.
I’m so grateful to be able to report that I HAVE been included in abundance, just like Deepak said!
You too deserve abundance. See GigiLanger.com to learn about the tools that transformed my life. They might work for you too!
