NEW YEAR’S INTENTIONS

Resolutions are not my favorite, but intentions are! Each year I set an intention and speak the intention into a shell. I then throw the shell into the ocean and ask for support and guidance from Mother Earth and all that is. I invite you to enjoy this practice as you set your own intentions for love, success, and joy this year.
  • Find something beautiful from nature that inspires you; a shell, a rose, a crystal
  • Hold nature in your hands and close your eyes. Breathe deeply and visualize what you wish to create this year.
  • Now identify the feeling associated with the visualization and allow the feeling to become your intention.
  • Speak your intention into your hands and the beautiful piece of nature that you have chosen.
  • Offer your shell, flower, or crystal to the ocean, the mountains, or your favorite scenic vista; a place that is special to you.
  • Take a mental picture of the scene, the feeling, and the intention and carry it into your heart and daily meditations this year.

 

With Love and Gratitude,

Desi
