Goal: To become fully conscious at each moment... brushing your teeth, petting the dog, making your tea, your child’s voice, your husband snoring. Take it all in without judgement. Just play silent witness to your day... like you are watching a movie.
Assignment: Click 500 times... In this moment, I am present / I am connected / I am aware.
Just play witness to your day. Whatever shows up is in service to you practicing staying connected to your inner wisdom and sense of peace. Notice your inner dialogue. What is it saying? "This is stupid. I'm not good at this." Your brain may revolt but remain in control by continuing to click.
Throughout the day keep repeating the mantra and noticing your inner state. Notice any small irritations. What person or event triggered you? What belief about yourself did it trigger? What does anger feel like in your body? Can you locate it? Go there and ask.. what are you here to teach me?
I am present. click!
Maybe you are craving food. What does food craving feel like? Is it in your head or body? Are you physically hungry or mentally hungry? What triggered the food craving? Did someone upset you? Or are you simply trying to get away from doing a boring task? There is a lot to observe when staying totally connected to the present. If your food cravings are actually a result of boredom or feeling not good enough... that awareness will give you the opportunity to choose differently.
Throughout your day - while clicking, become intensely present to each moment's experience. Feel the breeze. Hear the birds. Notice the vibrant colors of flowers. Feel the inside of your body. Can you feel your heart beating? Straighten your posture. Feel the shift in your state.
Play with this mantra - I am present - You will start to notice the qualities of everything around you and within you. This mantra can bring great insights into your inner world, which will likely be mirrored by your outer world. For example, if you are holding onto anger on the inside, you will likely attract people/events to be angry about on the outside. And the opposite can also be true... if you feel loved and supported, you will attract more loving supportive people around you.
Below are some sample mantras. Repeat any one of them as many times as you can until another comes to mind that would serve you.
In this moment, I am Present. I am connected. I am fully aware.
I enjoy being a silent observer of each moment.
I love peacefully witnessing all that unfolds today.
I accept everything and everyone as they come.
I resist nothing. I accept everything.
In this moment, everything is as it should be. I remain connected to my inner peace and wisdom.
Every moment is an opportunity to practice patience and staying connected to my inner wisdom.
Today I get to practice staying peaceful no matter what happens around me.

Remember The Clicker Rules: (click for video tutorial)
1. Commit to holding your clicker! The more you click the faster you reprogram.
2. Say your mantras out loud and with conviction. Declaring your mantra registers it faster and keeps your attention. Otherwise your thoughts can drift off easier.
3. Keep a journal with you to write down any limiting beliefs that have been governing your life. This will bring more awareness to them so that you can chose differently.
