What is an intention ? It’s the decision to make a choice and direct your energy by doing so. For instance, you can set up your intention to have a day filled with gratitude and joy. By doing so, you will focus your energy to anything bringing this outcome and attracted by you, (the Law of Attraction is a cheeky player), you will see, witness events, circumstances, results leading you to live in this state. Everything is Energy. The key is to know and direct your energy to what you want.
What is even better to set up intentions that you will achieve successfully is to create an intention from your soul and not your ego.
An ego intention is for instance to lose weight to do not feel judged or because you lost your boyfriend. The feelings behind such intention is often struggle, anxiety, lack, fear and a lot of should. An ego intention is rooted in the desire to be validated by the society, by others. Whereas if you choose to lose weight to be fit and healthy, behind it, lies a beautiful idea of love, expansion and limitless possibilities that your soul aspire to. To reach a state of wellbeing and being comfortable in your own skin for yourself. The roots of this intention are so meaningful and positive that you will remember about it and naturally your mindset will shift to reach this intention.
So take the time to think about what you want to achieve this year and identify if your intentions are from your ego or from your soul. It is a fantastic empowerment exercise that I learned yesterday from Marci Shimoff and Debra Poneman and I loved it !
