Intention Setting Meditation
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 intention. When you decide to buy a birthday present, wiggle your toes, or call a friend, it all starts with intention.
The sages of India observed thousands of years ago that our destiny is ultimately shaped by our deepest intentions and 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.”
- Deepak Chopra, M.D.
Call it prayer, call it intention, call it meditation... it doesn't matter. We all need the moment and the energy that helps us to organize our thoughts, to focus our hearts and move into a place of mindful intention.
For this meditation feel free to read through the various oils, or even choose one that seems to be calling to you, even if you don't know why. Fill your favorite diffuser, have a seat wherever you are most comfortable and have a quiet and focussed space.
Using the oils you choose, place a few drops in your palm and rub on your solar plexus or third chakra.
Concentrate on your intention, picture it, feel it.
What do you see?
Can you smell the space?
Can you see what you are wearing?
Manifest this image in your mind and heart.
Enjoy the quiet.
Remain in this space as you settle into this image in your heart.
Say a prayer of thanks for this time and for your ability to set such an intention.
