Focus on what you want for 17 seconds at a time, feel good, just feel good, and then let the thoughts go. This is the process of turning around bad habits of thoughts, justifications and rationalizations for what is going wrong around you, and get things going in the direction that pleases you.
This would then be a good time to chant for service to yourself and others in a state of gratitude, without wanting something to come from the chanting. If you can, get lost in the chanting. Feel the rhythm of the chanting, see the chant as a message to Source, or as the key in the gateway to Source. The larger part of you is a part of that Source, so you are through your chanting calling to the most powerful part of who you really are.
Source is the creator of worlds, and as a powerful caller who has the backing of this Source, you too can create an environment that is more to your likely, and then radiate that vibration out for any others who are able to receive it. Though it should not be your intention to change the lives of other people for they create their own reality, it will be shown that you influence their reality if they are on a similar wavelength and will allow it. It is as Master Sha says, the teacher can only teach the ready student.
Focus for 17 seconds on what you would like to see happen or have. Feel good at what you have pre-created. Let it go. Do this process over and over, and see what happens. Let us know how good it gets.
