Intentions

Most have heard the aphorism "The road to hell is paved with good intentions." These are not the kind of intentions I'm referring to and you might wonder, well what is the difference. When we make decisions or receive an idea or impulse from an ungrounded place or from our ego mind, we can often get confused and convince ourselves in believing that we had "good intentions" behind what we did or said, however that is a very different "Intention" than when I speak of what I use as the foundation of all my coaching as well as my own lifestyle. We must first develop and connect with the version of ourselves that makes us the most proud or excited when we envision living our best life. When we live our lives with intentions grounded in our core values, it is like having a quick little manual in our back pockets that we can refer to when we are faced with any decision throughout the day.




"When our actions are based on good intentions, our soul has no regrets."

- Anthony Douglas Williams.


When we discover our truest "why" behind all our thoughts, words and actions, our intention statement becomes like a beacon of light always leading and guiding us in the right direction towards our most authentic, best life that we envision for ourselves.



Creating an intention statement is my favorite go to practice that I recommend to clients, friends as well as use for myself. I personally have my long-term intention statement, when I journal each day, at the top of my page, I write my intention for how I intend to show up and use my energy for the greater good, in this one day. I also set an intention statement for any project I am about to create so that I can always come back to it when there are any decisions to be made. So, what is an intention statement? First let's start with an intention.


An intention is:

  • a mindset or way of being.

  • connects to a greater purpose.

  • aligns with your authentic self.

  • focuses on how you want to feel.

  • is about the journey, not the destination.

  • provides the foundation for effective goals.

Creating an Intention Statement is a structured way to have all of this information condensed down to a paragraph or two. This is always the first and one of my favorite parts of my coaching because the process takes a little time but always uncovers your deepest desire and aspirations and leaves you feeling more connected with your values, purpose, passion and can function as a road map for the journey ahead.


I invite you to take a moment to sit without distraction and write down a few of your genuine core values. Focus on how you want to feel in life, not what you want to have. What is the feeling you are looking to experience in this lifetime that excites you? Is it love? Passion? Freedom? Peace? Balance? All of the above? If you were living your best life every day, how would you show up and how would that feel? With this one step you are beginning to lay the foundation for making every day, the best day of your life so far, and believe that the best is yet to come!


May all your wildest dreams and desires be drawn to you, swiftly!


All the love,

Pamela
