What is the difference between setting intentions and setting goals?When it comes to making substantial life changes, we often think of the New Year's holiday as the perfect time to take the plunge. But setting goals or resolutions, and setting intentions are two very different things. Intention is the starting point that precedes goal setting. Intention is about harnessing your creative power -- getting really clear about your heart's desires, whether for love, self-love, family peace, spiritual awakening, or work you enjoy. Setting intentions is a powerful way to affirm your deepest desires. Once affirmed, they can be releases to the Universe to take root and grow, like seeds planted in fertile ground.
How do I set intentions for the New Year?
The starting point for setting intentions is meditation. It's important to quiet the mind long enough to allow the din of everyday ego chatter to retreat. If you can quiet the mind, you will find that the heart knows what it wants in the broadest, most all-encompassing sense. For example, your ego may be focusing on how you want to lose weight, how much weight you want to lose, how you feel this is necessary to attract love or improve your sex life, etc. Behind this noisy chatter may be your heart's desire to listen to and honor your body and feel good in your own skin. This is the starting point of intention.
But manifestation doesn't stop there. You have to get so clear that you feel your burning desires, not as plea coming from a place of lacking, but as if you were feeling the feelings of gratitude and expansion as if the desire had already come to pass. What will it feel like when the love of your life appears in the New Year? Allow yourself to notice how wonderful it feels to be loved, cherished and desired. Once you feel the feeling of your intention to find love, let it go. Release the intention with gratitude and faith that it will come to pass.
