Step 1 – Read these instructions. (See? Simple! Just like the title says!)
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.
“I intend success and prosperity as I begin a new exciting path in my life.” = more powerful.
“I am jobless and feeling insane for quitting to start a business. Please help me not be a loser.” = less powerful.
For some, it might feel terrifying 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. Cuz we’ll do it for you!
Step 4 – Comment below.
State your intention or request in the comment box below.
(Note: I can no longer take these by email. The last two times I had hundreds of emails — which makes it hard to print out and take them with me!)
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. Or if you should have figured all this stuff out by now.
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. Gratitude is the ultimate bringer of more. It is the ultimate releaser of drama.
“You’re right. That was easy. But I don’t get it.”
Well, this coming weekend is the fourth of five sold-out 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 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. In fact I’ve received many emails 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 just hooey.
Maybe it’s totally real.
If nothing else, you’ll just get some good mojo going on!
You’ve got nothing to lose. Let us help you get what you want!
