10. Let the Child play – Inside of you is a child, mostly that child wants to remind you that being playful is important to how you experience life. Sometimes the child was pushed away too early and it lies inside in a ball hoping you will invite it out to play to help make you whole.
11. Ask questions, explore beliefs - You were given a mind to question all your thoughts and beliefs. The world is really in need of questioning minds who can see through the blinders of limiting beliefs and closed minds
12. Develop Impartiality – Your ability to move beyond the judging mind and simply be a witness to your own process is transformative. If you can watch and be accepting of yourself, you can do the same for others.
13. Explore Higher Consciousness – The goal of the game of life is to become more awake and aware and thereby free yourself to make healthy and vibrant life choices. The more you are conscious, the more you can help others be awake and aware.
14. Be positive about money – Money is energy, you can view money any way you want. You can be open to having all the money you want and use money for the good of humanity or you can judge other who have money and keep it from flowing through your life.
