last wednesday night i joined a friend for an evening of meditation with tara brach and the focus was intention. a favorite topic. setting an intention is encouraged at the start of each tranquil space yoga class and creates a space for clarity.

tara mentioned the mary oliver poem, “what do you plan to do with your one wild and precious life.” this always gets me. and i ask myself this regularly. so juicy.

here are my notes {and snippets of my friend’s notes}:

– we energetically share our intentions
– liberating intention: 1. manifesting innate potential, unfolding what is inherent to your nature. be who you are. live truth. 2. embodied and sincere 3. always relates to this moment
– intention is everything
– “before committing to anything that might add stress to your life, listen to hear your intention.  only commit if it’s a 100% resounding yes through your body” – oprah
– intention is like a flower blooming, asking the inquiry alone will help toward the blooming
– check in with your intention regularly, all the time, with everyone and every interaction
– it’s okay to not know your deepest intention … just asking helps
– when there is conflict, ask yourself of your intention
– where our attention goes, energy flows. ask self, “what matters most?

i found this talk to be a good reminder. intentions are powerful. one huffington post article encourages a morning intention, even claiming it will change your life. i’m open to a life change, et toi? clarify and embody intentions. bisous. x
