If you’re not waking up in the morning and setting your intentions for the day, you’re unknowingly setting intentions that can attract to you exactly what you do not want.
As humans, we perceive the world around us every moment in the day and if we don’t make the commitment to see train our minds to see things as they truly are meant to be seen- which is life getting better and better, easier and easier; never a lack and always a surplus. Well than, that’s when we perceive things as getting worse, we open ourselves to the notion of fear and that one day the things we love so much will not be here any longer. These perceptions permeate the mind and become enweaved with our thoughts that create our feelings and we demonstrate our feelings through our actions. The next time you find yourself feeling bad, dissect your thoughts and identify what you were thinking about in that moment.
Starting each day with powerful, deep rooted intentions isn’t always easy and it’s most definitely a process. I recommend starting your mornings with whatever allows you to remember to be mindful. Whether it’s reading an enlightening book for 15 minutes, listening to a meditation, stretching or engaging in yoga- do something each morning that will help set your intentions for the day. If you don’t have the time to physically sit and meditate, then download a spoken morning meditation from YouTube. Make a point to listen to it as you get ready for your day or during your commute. It’s a great way to set the stage for your day and welcome a truly nurturing day.
