Ones | To become more fully engaged, try first to fully engage yourself, your heart as well as your head and gut.

Twos | To become more fully engaged, engage yourself before, during and after you also engage others, being fully present to both simultaneously.

Threes | To become more fully engaged, rely less on your head to figure out your next moves and, instead, engage your gut and your heart and learn to trust them.

Fours | To become more fully engaged, go beneath your felt-emotions to find your center from which you can find your most true reactions and the path to your mind and your body.

Fives | To become more fully engaged, you must actually engage rather than detach into your mind; find your heart and your body through your breath.

Sixes | To become more fully engaged, go deep and down into your body, stay there, and move from that place of solid trust.

Sevens | To become more fully engaged, you must first engage all of yourself by staying with all of your feelings for much longer, then grounding your physical body as you sit, walk and sleep.

Eights | To become more fully engaged, open yourself up to your vulnerable places rather than engaging through forward action alone.

Nines | To become more engaged, you must become more awake, more continuously alert, more vibrant and more resonant with your self.
