This is an abridged version of the deservability treatment my therapist gave me when we first started seeing each other. In the last month, I have truly truly begun to believe these tenants. WIth all my heart.

The full text is:

"I am deserving. I deserve all good. Not some, not a little, but all good. i now move past all negative restricting thoughts. I release and let go of the limitations of my parents. I love them, and I go beyond them. I am not their negative opinions, nor their limiting beliefs. I am not bound by any of the fears or prejudices of the current society I live in. I no longer identify with limitations of any kind.

In my mind I have total freedom. I now move into a space of consciousness, where I am willing to see myself differently. I am willing to create new thoughts about myself and about my life.

I now know and affirm that I am at one with the Prospering Power of the universe. As such, I now prosper in a number of ways. The totality of possibilities lies before me. I deserve life, a good life. I deserve love, an abundance of love. I deserve good health. I deserve joy and happiness. I deserve freedom to be all that I can be. I deserve more than that. I deserve all good.
The Universe is more than willing to manifest my new beliefs. And I accept this abundant life with joy, pleasure, and gratitude. For I am deserving. I accept it; I know it to be true."

I wanted to end 2010 with this "treatment." Partly to celebrate my newfound belief in my own deservability, but also as a reminder that the close of the year is the perfect time to focus on forward motion. I resolve to move forward. To believe good things about myself and those around me. I resolve to treat myself with kindness and care, and to appreciate my gifts.
