Newton's third law states that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. How aware are you of this law in your life? Can you recall one example of this law in action from today?
Where have you put energy into the world that feels bad or "off"? What's something you could do to "react," that is, to redo the action so you project a cleaner, brighter energy?
If you dislike or criticize yourself, reality will mirror that. If you feel compassion for yourself, reality will mirror that. Knowing this, where can you feel and show more compassion for yourself?
To intend something is very different from simply wanting it. Who do you want to be in this life? Who do you intend to be? If they're different, can you shift your desire to an intention, your "I wish" to "I will"?

List ten things that reliably shift your energy into a higher, happier frequency. Can you increase the time you spend focusing on these things?
List three things that pull your energy downward. Can you eliminate them from your life? If not, how can you change your intentions so that your energy isn't dragged down?
