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?

Learn to Work Your Spiritual Muscles

Today I was at the gym and saw a woman working out with nylon stockings under her shorts. Since I have the benefit of clairvoyance I was able to read that this was because she was embarrassed about her legs.

How many times have you judged yourself or felt ashamed because you didn’t like something about yourself or didn’t feel good enough?

I’ve been around people who appear to have everything and should be joyful, but because they are completely disconnected all they can focus on is what they don’t have and how dissatisfied they are.

What does it mean to be connected?

Being connected means you are able to take a break from the world outside of you and go within to experience peace and a feeling of oneness with all of life.

In these quiet moments you will have access to your higher self and can open your heart to experience more harmony, joy, and self-acceptance.

When you have a strong connection to your spiritual energy, it changes the way you think and feel about yourself. When you are spiritually aligned, you see yourself as an expression of the divine and will have more trust and less fear.

Learning how to stay connected is an important step for anyone on a spiritual path because it allows you to come from a place of love, not only for yourself, but also for Mother Earth and all of humanity.

I am truly blessed to do the work that I do, as it keeps me in constant communication with the Universe and allows me to stay spiritually aligned.

I recommend setting aside time to develop your own connection to source. It should be personal and speak to you. Make it daily and know that it is a life long process!

Here are a few tips to get you started:

Set aside time each day for this endeavor: It could be meditation, a walk in nature, listening to music, reading a spiritual book, watching an inspiring pet story, or connecting with like minded souls.

Make giving a part of your practice. It doesn’t always have to be financial; it can be your time, your energy and other resources.

Send love and healing energy to the planet. Any chance you get, pour love into the world.

Commit to being open and to never stop learning and embracing change.

Be grateful for all that you have, even the not so good since it will be an opportunity for growth.

Laugh – this allows you to release energy and to not take yourself so seriously.

Try not to judge. You always have a choice in how you see someone. By making the conscious decision to see the best in someone you are holding space for them to move to that new vibration.

Nurture your body with good food, rest and exercise.

Ease up on yourself – no-one's perfect!
