Step 1 – Read these instructions.

(See? I told you this was gonna be easy!)

Step 2 – Think about what you want.

Think of the resolution to a challenge you’re facing. Or some kind of expansion you’re intending in your life. Or some area of your life that could use a little energy, light, abundance, peace, or healing.

Step 3 – Write your intention as powerfully as you can.

Examples:

“I am intending a healthy body and full healing from back pain.” = more powerful.

“I am sick and miserable. Please help me not be sick and miserable” = less powerful.

For some, it might feel impossible to write a powerful intention, especially if you’re scared or hurting. That’s okay. But just try to remember this: the more of your own affirming mindset that you can conjure up, the better it is for you. If you can’t conjure that up – then read on. We’ll do it for you!

Step 4 – Comment below. Or send an Email.

Put your intention or request in the comment box below or send an email entitled, “Prayer List” to christine@christinekane.com. State your intention or your request.

Step 5 – Let go.

Waste no time wondering if you did it right or if this stuff even works or if you look stupid or if you asked for the perfect thing when you need so many things or if your boss will know that’s you in the comments asking for a different job. Let go means let go. Take a breath and let go.

Step 6 – Be grateful.

At some point today, write down or say out loud ten things for which you are grateful in your life. Be grateful that you are learning the lesson that this challenge is offering. Be grateful that you have friends, a roof over your head, a job. Just be grateful for as much as you can.

————

“You’re right. That was easy. But I don’t get it.”

Well, this coming weekend is the second of four 2008 Great Big Dreams Retreats.

At every retreat, I open the weekend with silence and intent. At that time I take the names of everyone who has emailed or commented to this post – along with all of their intentions and requests – and I include them in our circle and in our own prayers and affirmations.

I call it our “Great Big Prayer List.”

It’s a powerful part of the retreats – and I’ve had many emails from people saying that lots of things changed in their lives after they did this – and that they could actually feel themselves as part of the circle.

Maybe it’s all hooey.

Maybe it’s totally real.

Who cares?

You’ve got nothing to lose. Let us help you get what you want!

—————–

***Extra Credit*** Step 7 – Join us.

On Friday afternoon at 2pm EST, join us. Light a candle. Say, “I’m in.” Nod to the ethers. In what ever way works for you, join our circle with your intent. We’ll welcome you!

    I am courageously moving ahead on a life-purpose path that is better than the one I’m on now. It’s ok if it’s not what I’m ultimately supposed to do. I trust that it’s what I’m supposed to do next and that I will always have what I need. By the end of this year, I will have let go of my job of 25+ years.

    I know from experience that my body thrives (it has energy, it gravitates toward its ideal weight & eating patterns, and I feel great living in it) when I’m doing what my heart tells me I’m supposed to do. I am intending happily and easily hearing that voice.

    Thanks, Christine, for everything you do. Peace.

    Thank You, Christine, for sharing yourself, and the power of your gathered friends.

    I will believe in my own capabilities. I will buy this home on my own. I will start new and not allow marketing to make me think I need things I really don’t. I will bring into my life and home only with things that bring me serenity, joy, and pleasure. I will allow negativity directed at my lifestyle and choices to flow past me, unabsorbed. And I will take to heart and allow to manifest the wisdoms I need that Christine Kane has provided.

    I’ll be at work, headset to my ear, the amount of time spent per call timed to the second by my managers. But there in the private space of my own head, there will be a candle burning brightly at 2PM on Friday. Thank you for inviting us to join you!

  • Mindful Mimi

    Hi Christine,
    I participated in the last one and I have noticed something shift. I am actively pursuing a more flexible line of work and have ventured out into the real estate business. I am seriously looking into this path to see if I can do this for a living and whether it gives me the more flexible hours that I’d like to have for my kids. So thank you for helping to set that in motion.

    So I’d like to add something again this time.

    I am intending to waste less time and spend it instead on painting more and being more creative.

    After having read your Word of the year post I am not sure yet what the word is for me but it has to do with complaining less (I can’t seem to find a positive word for that but the idea is in my mind all the time now – it’s not working every time yet but I am getting there). So I intend to complain less, to be less stressed, worried, annnoyed. To react less aggressively to people in general and my family in particular.

    Thank you for including me in your prayers.

  • stacey l

    I am intending to deliver a perfectly healthy baby in December.
    At the last retreat I asked for prayers to concieve this perfect baby… and now that I have… I would love prayers for the baby to be healthy and perfect!
    Thanks.

  • Laure

    Thank you, Christine, for including those of us who are not able to attend!

    I intend to find the right way for me to “finance” my creative life and be open and accepting of whatever form this “financing” may take as well as to continue practicing the new-found balance that has come into my life since getting rid of my toxic job!

    Again, thanks, and I am there in heart & soul, if not in body!

  • Diane

    My intention is to create more energy and joy in my life by letting go of the past. I need to continue to rid my house of the clutter and things that weigh me down! I will light a candle and be with you all in spirit at the retreat. Thank you and Blessings!

  • Regina

    I am intending to have a calm mind and to be free of the anxiety that has plagued me for most of my life.

    Thank you for this opportunity!

  • Kit

    This is such a cool thing for you to do – thank you for your generosity!

    I am intending to earn enough from my freelance writing to support our family, and so give my husband enough time to make a success of his internet business. I am intending enough energy to find the balance between work and family, so the children still get enough love and attention.

    Thanks Christine, I’ll be with you then in thought.

  • Laurie

    I am living in the now.
    No worries about tomorrow, next month or next year. This minute is what matters.
    Thank you Christine, again, for this opportunity.

  • Irene

    I am intending to eat healthy and fear free. I am opening my heart to the learning experience and playfulness. I welcome each day in this moment.

    I am grateful for this opportunity.

    I intend to beat depression or at least accept that part of me and stop trying to run from it.
    Face the fears I have about my creativity “running out” or not living up to expectations of myself and others through my work.
    and I intend to effortlessly and permanently reach my body’s natural slim weight of 108 pounds. I am so happy that the excess weight is just falling off of me. It is a relief. I am happy to finally love my body and the way I look. I feel free and beautiful for the first time in 8 years.
    I am also completely debt free! yay!
    Oh and the career and job that I have been trying to build for myself for years finally seems clear and doable and most of all enjoyable:)

    I am intending clearer communication with my exhusband.

    I am intending to become a powerful runner. I will become healthy, but mostly to have fun while running. I’ll run in the Country Music Half Marathon on April 25, 2009. During this journey of running I’ll learn to love my body and what it can do for me.

    Thanks for this opportunity. I reread my post for March. I asked for a new career path. Now, I have a new job. This “Great Big Prayer List” is a powerful thing. I’m grateful for my new job. I am grateful for my home, my family, friends, and my life. I am intending to find someone to share my life.

    Happy Retreating! I can’t wait until I am able to join the fun!
