catastrophes seemingly at every turn. You may question how you can
advance when your world is so full of hate. You may wonder how, in the

of realization modeled by the Buddha.

2. Set specific for what you want to have, be and
do. State these intentions in a positive way, rather than negative.

to, acknowledge yourself for doing that.

4. Find one or more
simple practices to help you open your awareness. These can be
straightforward spiritual practices like deep breathing, moments of
silent contemplation, or just being as loving as you can in each moment
with your words and actions. The important thing is consistency and
finding something you will do daily. You will want to have your
"practice" in your mind and awareness during the day, allowing it to
become a part of your routine.

5. Begin and end each day with some
positive and loving thoughts. Loving thoughts include those of
gratitude. Remember that your inner state will determine how you
experience your day as well as your sleep state. Therefore, be as
loving as you can towards yourself. Allow that self-love to grow over
time, creating an energy field inside of you and around you,
effortlessly broadcasting from you in all directions. This love will
begin to attract fortunate circumstances, opportunities, and the love
you seek from others and your world.

of rediscovering your Divine nature, we surround you with our love and
blessings. We are The Council of 12."
