Meditation is more than clearing one’s mind, it can also serve as a means to intentionally create positive change in your life.
“The mind is everything. What we think, we become.”– Buddha
The difference between Intentional Meditation and other forms of meditation is that not only are you increasing self-awareness and removing negative emotions by reducing your stress levels, but you are also enhancing it by stating a specific intention and then attracting the desired outcome.
Let’s admit it, life is busy.
It’s easy to feel the pressure to pack your life full of activities.
This continuous, persistent activity can make you feel as though it is impossible to rest or take time for things that bring you joy and allow you to simply, just be.
Taking time to embrace slowing down and living deliberately can be the first step towards living a more gratifying and fulfilling life.
Do you need help determining which intentions are most important to you?
- Today, I intend to make time for myself
- Today, I intend to love fully and unconditionally
- Today, I intend to bring more harmony into my life
- Today, I intend to forgive myself or those who have hurt me
- Today, I intend to embrace change
- Today, I intend to feel gratitude for all the positive people and things in my life
It’s important to trust and believe in the intention you set; have passion behind it.
“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.”– Henry David ThoreauAmerican philosopher, poet, and environmental scientist
When you open yourself to Intentional Meditation, you dissolve emotional blocks and allow the universe’s gifts to emerge and present themselves to you.
State your intentions in the positive.
When you clear your mind and when attention is brought to the forefront of your thoughts, you begin to create an openness to respond to them instead of reacting – this opens the bridge between you and the universe’s gifts.
