6. Take it Outside
It’s amazing how meaningful these statements can become when you state them aloud outside. It can be a very powerful experience.
Take what you have written down, imagined, and/or created and turn it into an outside activity. You can do some sort of small meaningful ceremony of some kind, or just simply state one or more of your pledges to the Earth. Make it something meaningful for you and your family and you can’t go wrong.
