Intention Setting

Intention Setting

Posted on November 1, 2017

I just spent the last 30-40 minutes writing down my intentions for the month of November. It was actually a lot easier than I thought and completely therapeutic. For me, this whole thing is very new to me, but loving the concept of it.

Let me back up…

On Monday, I attended a yoga workshop at Alo Yoga in Beverly Hills. It was taught by one of my favorite bloggers, Jordan, from The Balanced Blonde. Some Vinyasa Flow, intention setting 101, mingling with Jordan herself, and meeting like-minded people!

It was such a great vibe and I really enjoyed the experience so I thought I’d share what I learned.

So why set intentions?

Intention is the starting point of every dream. It is the creative power that fulfills all of our needs, whether for money, relationships, spiritual awakening, or love.

Everything that happens in the universe begins with an intention. When I decide to make a purchase, text a friend, etc., it all starts with an intention.

Our destiny is ultimately shaped by our deepest desires.

The classic Vedic text known as the Upanishads declares, “You are what your deepest desire is. As your desire is, so is your intention. As your intention is, so is your will. As your will is, so is your deed. As your deed is, so is your destiny.”

So writing down your intentions and putting it out there for the Universe to acknowledge. It also aligns your heart and mind and creates a purpose.


So was I, friend. So was I.

How do I set intentions?

I recommend getting out a notebook and pen. But for some, your phone might work better. For me, the whole process of physically writing down my intentions was a complete therapeutic experience.

Whichever you choose, make a list of the below for the month of November.

♡ 1-3 experiences you want to have this month:

♡ 1-3 relationships you want to deepen this month:

♡ 1-3 ways to get out of your comfort zone this month:

♡ 1-3 ways to show self-love this month: 

♡ Any intentions you want to cultivate or strengthen in your life this month:

Have fun with this and it certainly doesn’t have to be so serious.

Have a great Wednesday, all!
