Zoom Event! Prosperity Meditations: Everyday Practices to Create an Abundant Life

Susan Shumsky, DD, Friday, January 28, 7-8:30PM Pacific Time, $25

We have the power to create affluence in all areas of our lives, and not just material. Susan says that the creator is waiting for us to open to the unlimited riches of heaven that are always available to us. All we need to do is to learn how to receive boundless bounty that is our birthright.  How does poverty help spiritual people fulfill their laudable, idealistic dreams and aspirations? Wouldn’t the world be a better place if spiritual people, who aspire to do good, have access to limitless wealth? Couldn’t we help to heal the planet and lift people’s consciousness if we had greater resources at our disposal? If we can say yes, this book can help us manifest our fondest dreams and desires through the mental alchemy of meditation, a process that can change our minds, which, in turn, can change our lives and thereby positively transform the planet.

Susan Shumsky, DD dedicates her life to helping people take command of their lives in highly effective, powerful, positive ways. She is an award-winning, bestselling author of more than 20 books, including Instant Healing, The Big Book of Chakras and Chakra Healing, and Third Eye Meditations. A pioneer in the human potential field, she has taught meditation, prayer, affirmation, and intuition

“Let Prosperity Meditations become your daily devotional reading. Read it. Explore it. And expect miracles.”  - Joe Vitale, PhD, bestselling author of Zero Limits: The Secret Hawaiian System for Wealth, Health, Peace, and More worldwide for over fifty years. 

Shumsky is the co-founder of Divine Revelation®, a unique field-proven technology for contacting the divine presence, hearing and testing the inner voice, and receiving clear divine guidance. For 22 years, her mentor was Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, guru of the Beatles and Deepak Chopra.

“To attain wealth of the lasting kind, the kind that gives your life meaning, value, and sustenance, base your daily existence on the generosity of spirit.”

- Deepak Chopra

Many of us live and operate from a mind-set of lack, scarcity, and limitation. We focus on what we don’t have—financial security, confidence, an intimate relationship—which keeps us feeling insecure and inadequate.

We think “if only I could have those things, I could be happy.” But measuring wealth by money or material possessions leaves us feeling drained and spiritually empty.

Constantly striving for more often means our ego is driving our thoughts, actions, and reactions, which prevents us from reaching something greater: a true sense of inner peace, acceptance, and fulfillment. Yet, there is an inner path to prosperity and wealth that, once charted and explored, provides access to the great riches of the universe and life’s unbounded possibilities.

In Abundance, international bestselling author Deepak Chopra illuminates this road to success and wholeness, helping readers tap into a deeper sense of awareness to become agents of change in their own lives. Mixing ancient teachings and spiritual practices with the wisdom he’s garnered over four decades as the leading figure in mind-body medicine, Deepak demonstrates how to transcend self-generated feelings of limitation and fear in order to experience true abundance in all aspects of life. To do so, he offers a seven-step plan along with meditations and mindfulness techniques to help you focus and direct your attention, energy, and intuition so you can experience stability, affluence, insight, creativity, love, and true power.



DEEPAK CHOPRA™ MD, FACP, founder of The Chopra Foundation, a non-profit entity for research on well-being and humanitarianism, and Chopra Global, a modern-day health company at the intersection of science and spirituality, is a world-renowned pioneer in integrative medicine and personal transformation.

Chopra is an Adjunct Professor of Urology at Mount Sinai, Professor of Internal Medicine at the University of Central Florida, Clinical Professor of Family Medicine and Public Health at the University of California, San Diego and serves as a senior scientist with Gallup Organization.

He is the author of over 90 books translated into over forty-three languages, including numerous New York Times bestsellers. TIME magazine has described Dr. Chopra as “one of the top 100 heroes and icons of the century.”
