Intention Setting with Mala Beads
What are your dreams?
Your deepest desires?
Take a minute. Think about it. Get intentional.
Mala beads are more than just accessories. They’re meditation tools that have been used for thousands of years. They encourage us to pause, breathe and realign with our deepest intentions. They motivate us to invest in moments of self-care and compassion. They’re our spiritual forget-me-nots.
Using mala beads to set intentions is a powerful way to manifest your dreams and achieve your goals.
SIX STEPS TO SETTING INTENTIONS
1. Dig deep.
There are two critical questions you must ask yourself when setting intentions:
What do I want?
How do I want to feel?
Our feelings provide insight into our true desires. When we craft our intentions based on our true desires we start to align with our purpose and things really start to sparkle. Use your feelings as a compass when crafting intentions. Then get clear in your mind about what it is you want and how it is you want to feel.
2. Write it down.
Once you can clearly visualize your intentions, write them down. Make this a sacred practice. Light some candles, play some mellow music and get cozy. Make sure what you write is affirmative and empowering. For example, instead of “I want to lose 10 pounds by Christmas,” try something like, “I want to feel healthy, strong and radiant this holiday season.” When we write our intentions down we make them real, we give them power.
3. Share it.
Open up and share your intentions with the world. When we feel supported, we feel empowered, confident and radiant. You never know who out there can help you manifest your dreams. There’s strength in numbers. Don’t be shy. Open your heart and raise your voice.
4. Wear it.
Wear your mala during your intention setting process and daily as a reminder of your goals and dreams. When you feel overwhelmed or anxious, take hold of the guru stone and feel the energy of the healing crystals guiding you to peace.
5. Release + Trust.
Surrender your intentions to the universe. Once you’ve written them down and shared them, let them go. Check-in with your intentions frequently, but don’t become obsessed with specifics. Trust that the universe has got your back.
6. Check in.
Remind yourself daily of your intentions. Develop a spiritual ritual for yourself. Maybe it’s a morning meditation or an evening yoga practice. Use this time to count your blessings and align with your intentions.
