What I do: I Light a candle, place my amethyst stone on my alter, and put frankincense oil on my wrists. I then set my timer for 12 minutes. I take a comfortable seat on my pillow, sit up nice and tall pressing the shoulder blades down the spine and close my eyes. I take 5 deep breaths and start chanting the affirmation “ I trust my intuition” in my head. There are many different affirmations you can chant but this is my favorite one.
