Accomplish Your Goals: The Power of Setting Intentions

Updated: Mar 12, 2023

Understand the difference between intentions and resolutions, identify meaningful intentions and learn how to embody them to achieve your goals.

In the beginning of each year, I typically get sucked into the resolutions trend. I reflect on the areas where I can improve and write down a long list of goals that I hope will transform my life. As the year progresses, I often either forget about my resolutions or I give up on them because they felt too difficult to achieve. Can you relate to this?

According to an article by Forbes, 80% of people ditch their New Year’s resolutions by February. Resolutions are often based in areas we label as lacking, which is rooted in negativity. They tend to be strict and rigid, leaving little room for the unpredictable curveballs life throws our way.

This past year, I was inspired to replace my resolutions with meaningful intentions. Intentions focus on attracting abundance and attaining our future vision, which is rooted in positivity. They can also be adaptable so you can modify them and infuse them into every part of your life.

How do you set meaningful intentions to achieve your goals and manifest your dreams?

Take a moment and think about what you want to cultivate and achieve this year. Identify the areas that give you a buzz of energy, make you smile and align with your heart’s deepest desires. Check out the video below to learn more about setting intentions.

After you’ve set your intentions, how do you work to achieve them?

Embodiment is the key to manifesting your dreams into reality. Embodying your intentions involves holding them in your mind, feeling them in your body and aligning your actions with your intentions to accomplish your goals.

If you would like to practice setting and embodying intentions together, join me and KC Preska of Flower of Healing Arts for a donation-based workshop at Seagrove Park in Del Mar on January 28, 2023. We will guide you through an intention-setting practice, embodiment meditation and yoga flow to help you manifest your dreams. You can learn more and register for the event on Eventbrite.

We are here to support you in every step of this journey. If you have any questions, send me an email using the contact form on the homepage. We will be sharing ways to continue the embodiment practice at home in part two of this series. Stay tuned!

With gratitude,
