Because results happen when we're intentional with our actions
Do you ever feel like you bounce around in your life reacting to whatever comes at you? Or do you wish to make progress in some area of your life, but you're not sure how and taking any action feels overwhelming? Or do you just wish to start your day on your terms rather than waking up, turning on your phone, and seeing the many emails/texts/social media posts demanding your time and energy?
I spent most of my life acting without intention. I wasn't clear on what I desired, how I wished to feel, or what methods I wanted to use to accomplish my goals.
In fact, the first time I heard the phrase "set an intention" was in 2008 with a former teacher of mine. I had no idea what he meant. My lawyer brain was like "Set an intention - what is that? It sounds airy-fairy and unhelpful!"
In truth, it's neither airy-fairy nor unhelpful. It's highly valuable and concrete.
Intentionality is the process of acting with conscientiousness, thoughtfulness and purpose.
It's taking our power back because we're becoming aware of what we wish to experience rather than reacting to the world around us. With intention, we have more say in how we desire to experience our life. And we have a tracking tool to see if our desires are coming true.
We're going to set intentions in September and see what happens in our lives.
Setting an intention is actually quite easy. The challenging part is getting quiet, listening to our inner being, and hearing the intentions that wish to come through.
Whether you're new to intention setting or you've been doing it for years, the obstacle for most people is actually carving out the time to do it!
We're all busy and taking the time to sit quietly and go inwards to listen to what our inner world has to share with us can often feel like a luxury that we can't afford.
So we don't do it. And we may start feeling like we have no time for ourselves or that we're bouncing from activity to activity without any time to process what's happening to us.
So let's take some time for ourselves to set intentions.
This course will be entirely over WhatsApp.
Every Monday-Thursday morning from September 5th through September 29th, I'll post an audio file with that day's intentionality meditation. The meditation may focus on a specific area of your Life or it may be more general. I anticipate each meditation lasting 10-15 minutes.
You can download the audio file and listen to it at your leisure as many times as you'd like.
I've offered this course over Zoom and am using WhatsApp this time as it's easier for people to listen when it's convenient for them AND it allows for greater connection as people can post their thoughts/experiences in WhatsApp and communicate with each other outside of a specific meeting time that occurs with Zoom.
Perhaps new friendships will be made!
Here are the course details
A 10-15 minute intention setting meditation that I'll post as an audio file in WhatsApp every Monday-Thursday from September 5th - 29th.
The ability to listen to the audio file whenever you want and as many times as you want.
An opportunity to share your experiences of the meditations with others through WhatsApp.
It doesn't matter if you're new to intention setting or you've been doing it for years. Your inner being will meet you where you're at and provide you with what you need for each day.
