I'D LIKE TO CHANGE SOME THINGS BUT......
Benefiddance requires you to trust your own intuition and practice allowing it to guide.
How many times have you said any of these things:
"Something told me" "I had a funny feeling" "I wish I had gone with my first mind" "I KNEW it!"
That was not "something" nor was it a "funny feeling" . That was your intuition and you failed to trust it.
Your first Benefiddance assignment:
RID yourself of the notion that you can't trust your intuition
BENEFIT yourself by naming it and speaking its truth: "My Intuition says/said"
PRACTICE allowing your intuition. Be still, get quiet and listen. Trust.
How SPIRITED is your soul?
Grab a scrap of paper, answer the questions and score them using the chart at the end.

You can't change until you WANT to
Grab a notebook and jot down goals or desires for the points
Don't get the hammer if you want to cut wood - identify the areas you wish to work on and determine the tools you need to get the job done
You always have choices; fear is not a productive choice - learn to think things through with an open mind and be willing to let your inner wisdom lead you
Intention is critical - be clear about what you are doing and why
Stay focused on the outcomes you want and move towards them; don't become so attached to the outcomes that you fail to see big picture
Fill your life with grace and beauty - get rid of things and people who do not add to your life; if someone isn't supportive, you probably don't need them
Develop and maintain a positive mindset - in difficult times, positivity will see you through; negativity won't
Fully develop inner peace - staying calm opens the way to free flowing thoughts and more purposeful actions
Expect the best for yourself simply because you deserve it!
