#ThrowbackThursday InstaDiary! What I learned from meeting spiritual leader Deepak Chopra…


Hey Sacred Bombshell,

I was lucky that I first found personal development work as a teen. My dad gave me a handout from a Zig Ziglar talk he attended and my mind was blown. Then I happened on Joseph Campbell, Tony Robbins, the archives of Og Mandino, Wayne Dyer and Sark. Then Iyanla Vanzant, Deepak Chopra and eventually Jack Canfield & Abraham Hicks.

Mind — blown.

So when I was in a restaurant with my friend Patranila and we spotted Mr. Chopra, it was all I could do not to go all fan girl. And maybe I kind of did, a little bit. Or a lot. Lol

But for a man who must get recognized every 5 minutes who was having a quiet meal with his friends and family, the spiritual leader was kind and gracious. He not only listened to me gush out a longer version of what I said above, but he asked for our addresses and sent me 5 (FIVE!!) of his books.

Nothing is Impossible! _Deepak Chopra...

Deepak Chopra was my guru and a spiritual leader, but he was also a regular person. We hopefully took up less than 5 minutes of his time, but his energy was positive, supportive and pure grace.

Yes, Deepak Chopra!

The Secret to the Law of Attraction

As someone who has interviewed plenty of big name folks, I pride myself of being professional, NY cool and never feeling celebrity-struck. But here was someone who had taught me so much!

I learned that it is ok to be vulnerable enough to be impressed and be my weird fan girl self — and that spiritpreneur gurus are people too, albeit with a powerful sense of grace.

Thanks, Deepak Chopra!

xoxo, Abiola
