Chapter 7: Tune Into Intuition

Stay Triple A Meditation

 

Universe, source energy, all that is: keep me safe and protected as I uncover and follow my true purpose on this Earth. Allow me to trust my intuition to tell me when I am where I need to be, and also to tell me when I am not. Give me the courage to pursue my dreams, even when doubt threatens to pull me off course. Give me the discipline to stay that course though temptations may distract me. Infuse into me the energy that I need to live out my dreams, and bless me with the integrity to work toward that which is in the highest service of the Universe and its constituents.
