What do Diane and Hannah mean by “mindset”? Diane gives the definition as “the set of beliefs that define how we see ourselves and how we approach the outside world.”
Ember, the patron
saint dragon of uplifting your mindset
Hannah mentioned a meditation process she uses to start every day that she got from Jeanna Gebellini. It takes her about 10 minutes to write out.
- Aligning with Abundance (one to five entries…not even full sentences)
- Appreciation (everything and everyone): this is similar to the Gratitude journal. Hannah writes a dozen things on here every day.
- Feeling for the Day: one sentence for how she wants to feel
- Action Steps (up to five): steps to take today to move forward on projects
- Delegation to the Universe: a list of things Hannah would like the universe to take care of.
- The Wild Hair Intention (go wild with your dreams): a few lines…or maybe a story over three or four paragraphs
- Sign it.
Why is writing this out important? The very act of writing something imprints it on your mind more thoroughly than just thinking it. Put it down on paper, commit to it. Have a general map of the path you want to travel on.
