Goals vs Intentions

Clients often ask me for guidance on how to reach their goals – to find a relationship, have a child, buy a house, get a certain job, etc..

While it's natural to set personal goals, I've found that setting an intention will often achieve a result that's better than the original goal. The result of setting an intention is often more spiritually aligned.

What's the difference between a goal and an intention?

A goal is a clearly defined, measurable achievement:

  • I want to place in the top 5 in the marathon.

  • I want to buy a house in this specific neighborhood.

  • I want to lose 10 pounds.

  • I want to have 10,000 followers on social media.

An intention aligns you to your spiritual energy and can be hard to quantify:

  • I want to feel more connected to people

  • I want to be healthier

  • I want to be open to new business opportunities

  • I want to be more vulnerable

A goal propels you towards an accomplishment or an achievement. Failure to achieve your goal often leads to unhappiness. Reaching your goal might make those around you envious.

An intention taps into your heart and soul and moves you towards a deeper experience, like, you want to be happy so you can be more optimistic and positive about life.

To find your intention, close your eyes and take a few deep breaths. Focus on something that matters to you. Bring this image into your heart charka. Continue breathing and grounding your intention through your heart. Doing this exercise will help you discover your true motivation and get clarity about what matters most. Is it about getting that 10,000th follower on Instagram or is it about creating an online community where people connect and share ideas and inspirations?

Self-Love

"For me, love is the most important force. It moves the universe." - Laura Esquivel

February is the month we celebrate love and all the joyous ways it makes us feel.

There are many ways you can experience love: through family, a significant other, friends, pets, finding your purpose, volunteering, art, nature and let’s not forget loving yourself!

Before you can truly love someone else, you must first be able to feel love for yourself. Loving yourself is all about self-acceptance and waking up to your true self.

Self-love is a continual cycle of:
Self-discovery – seeking to understand who you are as spirit
Self-improvement – committing to growth and being open to change
Self-acceptance – forgiving yourself and having trust in yourself

Staying connected to your heart and higher self is the best way that you can strengthen and nurture a positive and loving relationship with yourself.

Take a few minutes each day to fill yourself up with love. Take a few deep breaths and see and feel a gold light coming down through the top of your head. This gold light is Universal Love. Continue to breathe in this incredible gold light and send it down throughout your entire body. With each breath feel this energy filling up each cell and radiating love.

Open Your Heart

At times, it’s easy to get caught up in negative energy and to feel angry about something that is happening to you or around you.

We are all spiritual beings and we all have the potential to experience so much love in our lives, however it starts with you!

When you allow more love and joy into your life, you will find yourself slowly beginning to let go of past pains, insecurities and invalidation.

By practicing forgiveness, being compassionate and avoiding judgment, you can let go of things that block your energy and stop you from being happy and in flow.

When you open up your heart and make the conscious decision to focus on a more positive and caring perspective, you will begin to infuse the situation with this energy.
