Have you heard of setting intentions?
We’ve all heard of New Year Resolutions. I haven’t made one in years. I never stuck to them, they always seemed idealistic but impossible. And therefore I stopped doing them. I also had a small feeling of ‘meh, I don’t NEED IMPROVING!’ Maybe that’s just me. Perhaps they just felt a bit stifling?
So I started setting intentions instead. Choosing one, or two words that I wanted to ‘live by’ for the year, based on how I wanted to feel. Choosing a word to live by, gives us purpose and direction, and because the words are chosen from the heart – they provide inspiration and navigate us when we feel we’re losing our way in life.
The first year I did this, I choose Calm and Consolidate – after a particularly stressful time at work. I wanted to be able to live a calmer life. I also wanted to really consolidate my working life, acknowledge that I was where I wanted to be.
And last year, I chose Magic and Energy. I chose this quote from Roald Dahl as my mantra, isn’t it wonderful?!
And I think it’s safe to say that 2019, for me has been utterly magical and energetic (more of the metaphysical sense, I’m always blinking physically tired!)
2019 has been a great year, and I think I’ve achieved more than I even thought was possible.
So, now we’re about to uplevel into 2020, a new decade and I need to come up with my word for the next 12 months. I want to set intentions that will give me focus, and direction – something that will help me make decisions in my business AND my personal life.
So far, I can’t decide between BOLD. or JOY. Maybe I’ll choose both.
Choosing an intention is really powerful, it helps you decide what you want more of in life – and you know me, I’m always trying to reframe things into the positive.
Stuck for ideas? Stuck in life? EFT is great at clearing your mind fog, sift through any treacle that you might be wading through and gives you clarity on life. Let me know if you think you’d benefit from a session.
