SETTING YOUR ENERGETIC INTENTION
There I was first thing this morning, getting ready to set my ‘energy’ intention. To get my energy in a great state, I did a meditation first. I chose one from YouTube, which hosts thousands of them. I like guided meditations because they focus me very quickly and are so immersive, they help me concentrate.
This morning I chose one of Kenneth Soare’s meditations. It was only 6 minutes long, but it ramped me into a very strong state of positivity. To try it click HERE!
After I finished listening to it, I chose a ‘state of being’ that I wanted to embody in the day ahead. I chose “knowing my value” and set my intention.
Then I opened my email.
Glunk! That’s what my stomach did when I opened an email from a friend. My friend was very upset about something I’d done.
Now, I don’t know about you, but when something like this happens, I default to a state that says I’m bad and wrong. Yikes! I could feel all my positive energy surging out of me like a punctured balloon. So much for the awesome day I was going to have.
But wait a minute. What about my intention to feel worthy and unstoppable? I couldn’t, no, I wouldn’t let my intention go that easily. So, I did some tapping and worked through some of the feelings and thoughts. The tapping only took about 10 minutes and soon my inner worthiness bank was refilled. This helped me to believe that even if I had screwed up, since I was valuable, my friend would want to work things through with me. I went on with my day.
A few hours later, my friend and I talked. Because of my intention and the tapping, I was able to really listen and show a lot of caring to my friend and soon, the upset was cleared away and we were close again. Using these two tools, intention and tapping, was crucial to the process.
I’ll focus on tapping in another email, but today I want to teach you how to set an intention We often think of using the tool of Intention when we want to DO something, but it’s a great tool for setting your energetic destination. It will help you take charge of your day. Give it a try.
HOW TO USE INTENTION TO SET YOUR ENERGETIC DESTINATION:
Decide not what you want to DO in the day ahead, but decide who you want to BE! Pick a quality you want to radiate: peacefulness, acceptance, delight, lovingness. Then spend a moment or two visualizing yourself moving through the day ahead radiating this quality. It’s helpful if you include an imagining of something coming at you that might snag you, something you can then imagine yourself handling well.
At the end of the day, notice if setting the intention made your day different. Most people find it’s really helpful to keep them on track.
My gift as a coach is to teach people tools to put them back in charge of themselves and their lives. Intention is a great tool to do that. Try it and see what you think. After all, you wouldn’t get into your car without knowing where you are going, why would you give any less consideration to your energetic field?
