  1. Identify what it is that you want or need by asking yourself what is important right now
  2. Clear your mind of any negative thoughts or blockers that are preventing you from achieving your desired intention
  3. Create a spoken element – like a mantra, prayer or statement that can be repeated or focused on as needed
  4. Remember to recall your intentions throughout the day – with another practice like having breakfast, journalling or having coffee

  2. I will follow the cues my body gives me (this applies to hunger, thirst, other needs)
  3. I cannot control that which I cannot control
  4. I am filled with abundance
  5. I choose a life that fills me with joy
