Deepak Chopra, My Minivan and How to Create an Affluent Mindset

For several years when my children were young, any time our family minivan left the house, Deepak Chopra was in it.

You see, in the mid-1990s my husband and I reached a point when we had $45,000 in credit card debt, along with other debts, and had no income.

We knew we wanted to experience the opposite of lack and struggle with money (think affluence, abundance, wealth), but we also knew we had to change our mindset first if we really wanted to experience lasting change.

And that’s when car trips in our family minivan began to get a whole lot more interesting!

This Is For Every Woman Who Was Teased As a Girl

Carol Barrel. 

Thunder Thighs. 

We’re going to have to pay someone to marry you.

I grew up in a home where teasing was allowed—and those are just a few of the “funny” words I heard as a girl.

But looking back, I don’t see that kind of teasing as funny. It’s actually hostile humor.

Hostile humor is any negative judgment or derogatory message said in a funny way that is hurtful to someone’s sense of personal value.

If you were the victim of hostile humor in your childhood, I guarantee those words are still affecting how you see yourself today if you haven’t cleared them.

So today I’m going to help you clear those “humorous” insults with this simple process.

But first, I invite you to watch this amazing video to begin the process. I got emotional watching it as it brought up the stuff I needed to heal.

Even if you’ve already seen this video, it’s definitely worth the 3 minutes to re-watch it. And this time, watch it with your own emotional healing in mind!
