Some people find it difficult to just sit back and trust that the Universe will deliver that which they have asked for. This doubt factor in your life can interfere with your openness to love. When you live in doubt, you hinder the Universe's ability to deliver. Imagine the Universe trying to deliver a package to you, but you’re not home to sign for the package when your doorbell rings. This recipe on making Conscious Choices offers you another magickal operation to engage your attention so that you feel as if you are “doing something.” This exercise will also help you further establish your faith and trust in the Universe. With this exercise you turn one or more small decisions over to the Universe, then follow the Universe's answers without question. Doing this exercise for at least 40 days in a row will increase your faith in the Universe's ability to guide you toward your desired goals.

- Willingness to experiment with trusting the Universe’s guidance
- An alarm clock or the timer on your smart phone
- Quiet your inner self by taking a few deep breaths.
- Say to yourself, either aloud or silently, "I will now make a conscious choice."
- Ask yourself a choice question, such as, "Do I choose to xxx or not?" or “Do I choose to do this or that?” (i.e. – Do I choose to go for a run or watch a movie? Do I choose to have cereal or eggs for breakfast? Do I choose to eat lunch at the diner or not? ....). Start with questions of little consequence that won’t be life altering until you become comfortable with the process and establish a firm connection of trust and communication with the Universe.
- The first answer you "hear" internally (or sometimes externally from a passing person) is what you must follow. Don’t sit and think about an answer, just take the first one that pops into your head. You may not, in this recipe, avoid doing the option you have consciously chosen. That is one reason we say start with small things that won’t matter a lot as to which choice you hear.
- Repeat this exercise as many times per day as you like. The more frequently you ask the Universe for guidance, the more you will respect the power of the Universe to understand your desires and deliver them to you.
