Step 1 – Read these instructions.

(See? Totally easy! 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.

Examples:

“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 third of five 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.  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.

Who cares?

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!

—————–

***Extra Credit*** Step 7 – Join us.

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

    Thanks for this opportunity.

    I’m expanding. I am getting a gallery/workshop type shop. I’ve applied, set the financial side in motion, and have it planned. Now I’m wasting nervous energy waiting to see if the landlords accept my proposal. Now I can let it go knowing it’s in safe hands and get on with painting. 🙂 Besides, if I don’t get it that means my structure is ready and in place in order to just find another unit. Thanks!

    I intend wholesome success, financial prosperity as i enter a new phase in my life. I intend my business will prosper and will be a blessing to others

  • Jon Dittert

    Hey Christine,

    I was in a mountain biking accident on September 6 and I am still healing. I would like to request intentions for physical healing as well as for emotional and financial healing. I have been unable to play guitar or drums since the accident, and playing music was my primary outlet for creating, relaxing, socializing, and making money.

    I am grateful for all the help I’ve received from family, friends, and even strangers. I’m also grateful for your “Poison Ivy” post. As I lay on the ground after the accident, the second thing that came to mind (after a significant string of expletives) was “my body knows exactly what to do.” I’ve been trying to repeat that as often as I can.

    Thanks a bunch. I will be intending good things for all of you on the retreat this weekend.

  • Ann

    Thank you for this blessing Christine.

    I intend to not let fear get in the way of my true path. I intend to effortlessly create wealth, and receive it with ease, while continuing to build my authentic life. I intend a new source of work that brings abundance, growth, a healthy life and positive energy – doing what I love & helping others, while feeling confident, supported, and safe.
    I intend to be in a loving, committed relationship with someone who is honest, trustworthy, and emotionally supportive. I intend love in every part of my life – work, family, friends, intimate relationship, God and myself.
    I intend to allow abundance to come to me through many channels.

    May the weekend bring joy and healing to everyone!

  • mahi

    I’m not sure if this really says much, but with every fibre of my being I intend to focus on what’s important to me. I might not be able to join you on Friday, but I’ll spend that time thinking deeply about what it is that I actually want.

    Good luck to everyone.

  • Jenny

    I intend to become financially secure.

    I intend pure, unconditional love for myself.

    I intend success on my new path.

    I intend unwavering happiness in myself, no matter where I am or what I am doing.

    I intend self-confidence that stems from a place of experience and gratitude.

    Thank you, Christine, and thank you, Circle of Lovely Beings.

  • LaVeda H. Mason

    Thank you, Christine, for opening the circle to us all.

    I intend to create a life of spiritual, social, and financial abundance and glowing good health for myself and my family; to surround ourselves with people who love and honor us; and who we love and honor.

    I intend to move forward with my goals, and to release old patterns of fear and lack, and let go of people who do not honor us; allowing them to find their own happiness.

    I am SO grateful for the Internet; it allows me to learn from, attract, interact and grow with the best and brightest minds out there (yes, that’s YOU Christine); which helps keep me whole, focused and moving forward.

    Have a great retreat!

  • Rachael

    I step boldly and confidently into my new projects and buisness endeavors, knowing that every step towards my goal is a step towards a life of freedom in my career and my creative life. Every action brings me into closer alignment with my “mission statement”.

    I intend, no matter the outcome, to go part time at my “day job” by December 1st and to quit the call center job altogether by February 1st 2009. I will achieve my goal as a cartoonist and an illustrator, not as a “technical support agent”. I’m capable of achieving far to much to be afraid of taking the jump off of the cliff into unemployment and not realizing the steps will appear, the path will be shown, and(one way or another) the bills will get paid. My life will grow in abundance with each step of faith.

  • polaris

    Christine, what a cool posting. Thanks inviting us aboard the intention train 😀

    I intend to create a loving harmonious enjoyable relationship with a man who is open, honest, fun and creative in a way that supports my creativity.

    I intend amazing sucess in my new business venture.

    I am grateful for the support of my siblings, my virtual pen pals, and my parents. I’m grateful for the opportunities that have been presenting themselves to me. I’m grateful for the healing that I’ve been experiencing.

  • Heidi

I intend to let go, to remember that it is not up to me, to stop trying so hard, to laugh and play and be goofy, more and more and more. I intend to lay down at the foot of the goddess, my worry, my guilt and my shame, and to allow joy and peace and pleasure to wash over and through me. I intend to be a creative light for myself and for those around me.

  • erika

    I intend to have major breakthroughs in the following areas of my life:
    1) career— line up (or i guess be hired for) several HIGH PAID creative projects (either short term or longer term) allowing me financially security to work and thrive as a creative producer/writer/humorist full time. To have these projects be things that I am excited to do that will further my career and allow me to expand the people i reach through my work. These opportunities are bigger and better than anything I could have ever imagined for myself when I began my career.
    2) family —- have things take a positive turn in life for both my dad and my brother. It’s time for things to get better for them.
    3) body/self image — make huge headway on everything i need to do to heal years of abuse i inflicted upon my body and spirit. to release not only pain and habits that do not serve me anymore but to release pounds of weight as well. to treat myself better in the way i feed, move, clothe, and take care of my body. to finally see myself as growing healthier and more beautiful and to have others see that beauty too. to stop hiding in my clothes.
    4) to have my new and old friendships grow stronger. to grow closer again with my roommates. maybe even open myself up to meeting and dating romantically again (as long as that person would be a positive addition to my life)
    5) to practice integrity everyday. to be not only more productive but to be productive on the things that i need to do the most. to live up to my word.
    6) manifest a way to afford and have the time to take dance classes 4-5 times a week and make significant progress there.

    boy that’s a lot! maybe i need to light two candles on Friday:)

I especially intend to find creative ways to publish my writing while staying in this day job.

  • Lance

    Well, I think this is a pretty awesome idea Christine – thank you!

    Talking about silence, I attended a retreat a couple of years ago. We began the retreat with silence in the evening, and continued it until breakfast the next morning. In a very sacred place. Powerful experience for me. The silence, combined with the location – it really became a life-altering moment. So, I think what you do is great – and can have such positive affects.

    OK, back to the task at hand.

    My intention is: That I continue to travel on this journey I’m on with not only open eyes, but an open heart and mind. I intend to not let fear get in the way of true and really meaningful success. Success in what defines me at my soul.

  • Leslie

    Oops, typed my blog link incorrectly! This one’s right.
