Updated: Dec 24, 2020

An intention sets the compass of your heart. It aims your attention in the direction of your desires and wishes. 

It is difficult to attract and align with the energy you need to manifest your dreams and desires if you aren't clear on your intentions. 

If you're ready to get clear on what you're calling into your life in 2021, and beyond, keep reading!


The final weeks leading up to the new year are a powerful time to reflect on the year past and to prepare for the year ahead.

Set aside time where you can sit undisturbed for an ample amount of time.

Create a sacred space, meditate, journal, reflect on your past and begin to envision your future.

It is from this quiet space that you can listen to your heart and get clear on the things you want to acknowledge and release and what you want to call in. 

Reflection is a powerful tool for improving your perspective on yourself and your life. It is an opportunity to celebrate yourself. your journey and your life.

Reflection can boosts self-esteem and confidence and it helps to set the foundation for solid intention setting for the year to come.

When feeling accomplished and aligned with your life, you can create intentions with a courageous and open heart.  

After reflecting on the year past you will be ready to create your vision of my year to come.

Reflecting helps to clear your slate and return to a blank canvas. It is here that you can place your new visions, dreams, wishes and desires.
