SETTING YOUR INTENTIONS

 

"Our minds are a powerful thing and so is the energy we choose to manifest. whether we know it or not, we are paving our own paths with the energies we give out"

SETTING YOUR INTENTIONS FOR THE DAY IS A VERY POWERFUL THING TO DO. IT CAN CREATE A DAY OF EASE, FLUIDITY AND SUCCESS. HAVE YOU EVER WOKEN UP IN SUCHA GOOD MOOD THAT IT POURED INTO EVERYTHING YOU DID AND ANYONE YOU MADE CONTACT WITH? YOU NOTICE ALL YOUR TRAFFIC LIGHTS ARE GREEN AND YOU FIND A PARKING SPOT ON AN OTHERWISE BUSY DAY? I KNOW YOU'VE EXPERIENCED A DAY LIKE THAT BEFORE! IT'S AMAZING. WELL, EVERYTHING WORKED IN YOUR FAVOR BECAUSE YOU WERE SUB CONSCIOUSLY MANIFESTING A POSITIVE DAY. THE PROBLEM IS, IT'S NOT ALWAYS LIKE THAT, IN FACT IN TODAYS WORLD IT CAN BE HARD ESTABLISH AND MAINTAIN FOCUS ON WHAT YOU INTEND TO DO FOR THAT DAY.

THAT IS WHERE SETTING YOUR INTENTIONS COME IN, IT'S SO EASY TO DO YOU DON'T NEED MUCH BUT A COMFORTABLE, QUIET PLACE WHERE YOU CAN SIT FOR 5 MINUTES AND AN OPEN HEART. I LIKE TO DO THIS AFTER A MORNING MEDITATION.  WHEN IT BECOMES HABIT, YOU'LL FIND IT'S THE FIRST THING YOU THINK OF WHEN YOU WAKE UP... WHAT INTENTIONS DO I WANT TO SET FOR TODAY?

"...What intentions do I want to set for today?"

SOMETIMES I JUST WANT TO BE MORE PRESENT  WITH THE FOCUS BEING ON MY CHILDREN. SOMETIMES I CHOOSE TO BE EXTRA PROACTIVE AND ACCOMPLISH SET GOALS AND DEADLINES, SEND OUT THOSE EMAILS, GET MEETINGS IN THE BOOKS AND BE PATIENT WITH EVERYONE AND EVERYTHING (NOT AN EASY TASK I TELL YOU).


HERES HOW TO DO IT

ONCE YOU HAVE SETTLED INTO A COMFORTABLE SPACE, ALLOW YOUR MIND TO RELAX. FOCUS ON THE RYTHYM OF YOUR BREATH. INHALING THROUGH YOUR NOSE AND EXHALING THROUGH YOUR MOUTH. FEEL YOUR LUNGS GENTLY FILL WITH AIR IN EACH INHALE AND ALLOW ANY THOUGHTS TO MELT AWAY WHEN RELEASING THE AIR. IMAGINE YOURSELF IN THAT MOMENT AND HOW YOU ARE FEELING. WHEN YOUR MIND IS CLEAR BEGIN TO THINK ABOUT WHAT IS IT YOU WANT TO ACCOMPLISH IN THAT DAY. IS IT SIMPLY TO BE MORE KIND, EVEN IF IT'S WITH YOURSELF? WHAT ABOUT STAYING POSITIVE NO MATTER WHAT COMES YOUR WAY? HOW ABOUT TAKING THAT DAY ON WITH CONFIDENCE? WHATEVER IT MAY BE, FOCUS ON IT, FEEL IT AND BECOME IT. LET IT RADIATE THROUGH.

I ALSO LIKE TO CREAT AN AMBIANCE SO GENTLE MEDITATIVE MUSIC IS ALWAYS GREAT, MAYBE BURN SOME SAGE, PALO SANTO OR EVEN AN INCENSE.

OUR MINDS ARE A POWERFUL THING AND SO IS THE ENERGY WE CHOOSE TO MANIFEST. WHETHER WE KNOW IT OR NOT WE PAVING OUR OWN PATHS WITH THE ENERGIES WE GIVE OUT.
