Setting Monthly Intentions
It’s the beginning of the month, and I thought, what better way to start the blog off right then with a post about setting intentions!
You may have seen these lists pinned all over Pinterest, or on your favourite Instagram, but what really are intentions? And why should you set them?
Intentions are your first step to making your goals a reality. By clearly stating your intentions, you’re laying out the path to following your dreams.
So why set intentions? Intentions help keep you in the moment, and get you focused on your goals. Not only that, but you’re actually visioning your goals, and that’s the first step to making them happen! Setting an intention helps connect you to the Source, your higher consciousness, the Universe, whatever you want to call it! and you’re providing direction on how you want your life to go.
Tips on Setting Intentions:
If I were to say to you, picture yourself in your dream car, how quickly would you be able to do it? Instead, if I said to you, picture yourself in a red 2016 mustang with dark leather seats, you’d be able to envision that much faster.
The more specific you are with your intention, the easier it is to manifest it into reality.
It’s really easy to be jaded in this day and age, but keeping a positive headspace while setting your intentions is a must.
You might start writing an intention and realize it has a mind of its own. That’s okay! Your Higher Self knows you better than you know yourself. Let it guide you to your true purpose.
The universe has your back. There’s a reason everything that you’ve experienced has happened. Appreciate what you’ve been given when setting intentions, and thankful. You have to be open to receiving gifts from the universe, and being grateful is the first step in doing that.
