5 Steps To Setting Your Intentions
Everything we do in life begins as an intention. From the very basic daily routines to the complex journey that is our life. Where you are right now is a result of your intentions.
Take a moment to observe yourself, your environment.
What are you thankful for? What do you desire to change?
The power is yours and the following 5 Steps to Setting Your Intentions will bring awareness to your present journey and help you shape your future.
2. DREAM IT.
I find that a hearty hot yoga session is all I need to clear my busy mind and allow space for my true desires to arise. If this is in your practice, start here. If not, try meditating to clear your mind or find a quiet space without distractions to open up (mornings or evenings are best). Start with being present. Right here. Right now. What do you feel? How do you feel? What are you grateful for? What do you want to invite into your world? Visualize yourself doing or being this intention you desire. Speak it to yourself in a positive affirmation.
3. WRITE IT.
Write your Intention on a piece of paper and Speak it to yourself. When we give birth to an idea and materialize it in ink, on paper...we give it life! Writing your intention on seed paper is an excellent way to literally "plant" your intention and watch it grow! Speak your intention to anyone you interact with. It may seem crazy, but people want to help us reach our goals. If you share your intention with everyone you interact with, eventually someone will know someone...someone will have a connection and a way to help you reach your goal.
4. WEAR IT.
There are many ways to be mindful of your intention throughout the day. Mala Beads are prayer bead necklaces with 108 beads, often finished with a gemstone and tassel. Malas are used for meditation and mindful living. You can choose a Mala specifically for our intention...or you can have one made custom for you. A Mala bracelet or other meaningful accessory can also be helpful. You can also keep the paper which you wrote your intention on in your pocket, or enclose it in a locket. The Intention Collection features Mala Necklaces which are finished with lockets and include seed paper strips for you to write your intention on.
5. PLANT IT.
"Like real seeds, intentions can't grow if you hold on to them. Only when you release your intentions into the fertile depths of your consciousness can they grow and flourish" - Deepak Chopra
Visualize yourself in a place where your intention is your reality, and then let it go. Plant your seed and let the universe go to work for you. If you have written your intention on seed paper, plant it...and watch it grow!
1. WATCH IT GROW.
By taking mindful action daily based on your intention - and letting the universe "work out the kinks", you can watch your intentions begin to manifest. Be patient and know that the season for your intention to bloom is coming. Be Present. Be Grateful. Don't overlook the magic happening around you!
