The next prep step for our summer meditations is intention setting!
In the beginning of each yoga class, we are often asked to set an intention. I wondered about the true meaning of intention for a long time. Is it something that I want to happen? Is it something I am using my will to make happen? How do I set it and what do I choose?
I’ve noticed over time that the concept of intention is the first step in setting my focus and awareness. My focus goes where I set my intentions. And in that way, intentions are manifested into reality. It’s not a super cosmic thing, though when it happens it can feel that way. It’s a very practical thing.
One of the ways to assure that you’ll show up for meditation day after day is clearing the physical space to make it happen. I notice when my meditation practice loses its fire, my meditation and altar space is often dusty and lackluster. So here are some of my favorite tips for making your meditation space YOURS! Remember, your altar doesn’t have to be devout or overtly spiritual. I have small, plastic turtle figurines on my altar right now....turtles are one of my spirit animals. Invite into your space whatever makes you feel inspired and alive and a lil’ bit sassy!
