At the outset, it is important to settle in your mind exactly what your intentions are.

Before the first step in any endeavor, it is good to think.

Focus your intention.

What is it that you would like?

Distill your thoughts

to a single phrase

Focus on what you want, or what you would like to do. What is your goal? - Write it down.

Once you have envisioned your intentions, think about the various ways you can take action. What will it will take to get there?

Is there an order to the steps you can take?

Who will Help?

How can you change your mindset to enable it to happen?

What are the pitfalls? Things to avoid?

What are the impediments? How will these be overcome?

Once you have thought through various aspects of your goals, focus your intention on a phrase or statement that sums it up: ( example)

Repeat the phrase, while you focus your intentions.

In Ritual, open sacred space. Call in the sacred directions. State your intentions. Call on powers / deities that could help you. Respectfully ask for their help.

With the ring open, State your intentions, and that you are consciously calling on powers to help you, enfolded in the ring.

Close the ring (see specific instructions for the Pentagram here, or Celtic Hearts here), stating aspects with each step.

When the ring is closed, place it on your finger, holding that intention.

Close the circle and thank the powers of the directions and deities that you have invoked as you do so. Invite them to help you as you wear the ring.

As you wear the ring, it will remind you of your intentions, and help you on your path.
