I recently came across a list of intentions that I set a few years back and this reminded me just how powerful setting intentions can be. We are in the midst of some powerful eclipses and getting ready for mercury retrograde and it feels like a great time to review and set intentions for the remainder of this year and beyond.
Intentions are aims or plans that we give thought to. Perhaps you set intentions for your health, career and family. Or, perhaps you set intentions for your resources, fitness goals and personal growth. You can set intentions for just about anything. The key is to say the intentions and/or write them down, let them go and to not attach to the outcome. When we are able to set intentions without trying to control how or if they come to fruition, that puts us in a powerful position.
When setting larger intentions it can be helpful to write down your intentions in present tense, as if they are already here, and to keep them positive. (If you’re setting an intention for the yoga class that you’re about to take, no need to write it down unless you want.) I find that for bigger, more global intentions it’s helpful to come from a centered, grounded and peaceful state (so you can stay out of lack, which carries a very heavy energy) and to make sure that your intentions are not influenced by others. For larger intentions, setting them after you meditate, do yoga or walk in nature can help.
Take advantage of the energy this month and revise and set your intentions for the rest of the year and beyond.
Have fun setting and revising your intentions and share your intentions in the comments below.
