It's easy to get lost in a morning whirlwind - so why not take a few minutes to set your intentions for the day and decide what's most important for you? This can really help you to settle the mind and heart, ready for the day ahead.

Morning Intentions
Mornings are always the hardest for me as I wake up thinking of all the unknowns that lay ahead of me. Letting different anxious thoughts come to light. As the day comes to an end these go away as there are less unknowns to face. I’ve been looking for something to get me through my mornings and I think this is a great way for me to set my intentions and focus on something other than trying to control the day. Instead I can keep coming back to my intentions for the day and my breathing and power through.
Intention Setting
I have a hard time setting intentions for myself that I keep. This morning, my intention is self-care and self-love. I’ve been spread in a lot of different directions the past few months, supporting my family but not myself. I’ve been giving a lot, spending almost all of my time with my sister and my new niece, as well as with my parents due to a loss. I need to focus on myself some, and not feel obligated to always be around them as I’m starting to run myself thin. I need to care for myself now, so that I can fill my own cup before I keep giving. So today, it’s time to focus on myself and the things that give me joy, like getting a hair trim for the first time in over a year. ♥️💫
Really helpful for an anxious mind
I have bad morning anxiety, and reflecting on what is really important has helped a lot. For some the session may seem repetitive, but for people like me, whose mind tends to wander a lot, it is immensely helpful. Thanks!
Showing Up
Each and every day, we can set the tone for our day. How do we want to show up in our lives today? What do we want to get out of this day? What is truly important to us today? Setting intentions in the morning can help us in two ways. They not only answer those questions, but they also can help guide us through our day as well. For example, our day unfolds and unforeseen circumstances occur, as they always will, and we begin to feel frazzled. We can take a step back, breathe and remember our intentions that we set in the morning to help guide us back to what’s truly important to us today. This will help to put everything back into perspective. Pondering Jiva’s questions in my mind, I thought of what was truly important to me today. It is to be mindful in everything I say, think and do. It is to have a compassionate and loving heart. It is to experience lightness of body. It is to have an alert and reflective mind. And finally, it is to have a joyful and energetic body. For the past four or so months, I say these particular intentions every morning before I get out of bed and in doing so, my days have been much more fulfilling. My mindset has been more positive. My body has been more energetic. My soul has felt a sense of joy, a sense of excitement. It doesn’t take long to incorporate setting intentions into our morning routine. Setting intentions for our day helps us to answer how we want to show up for our day. No matter what happens during the day, we can always use our intentions to guide us through our day. Namaste 🙏🏻❤️☮️

“What Really matters to me today?” “What really Matters to me today?” “What really matters to Me today? “What really matters to me Today? Powerful question to ask ourselves over and over again, all day, everyday. This is such a simple task to do but has tremendous value to keep us focused & help us refocus on what is truly important. “What really matters to me today?” I know I can check off my morning meditation off that list and move on to the next most important thing. Hey this idea really helps!! Thanks Aura, Jiva & Cherish for this simple but effective tool! 💚❤️🍀
Best Intentions
What is your best intention for today? Wonderful question to reflect on at the start of your day. Setting an intention for the day helps us to focus on what we want to achieve for the day. It also helps us to refocus if unforeseen circumstances pop up during our day. My intention for today is to remain positive, show up with an open heart, and to remain grounded.
Morning Intentions
With all that’s going on in the world, it’s important to stop and set an intention for the day. When you rush into the day it continues to spin for the rest of the day.
Sense of clarity
Taking a moment to be still and sift through the thoughts of all of the tasks and “To-Dos” really helps bring a sense of direction and clarity to your day. Clearing clutter of the mind and focusing on what really matters brings a feeling of joy and excitement for the day ahead. My intentions today are to create and refine my artwork to depict love and my life’s purpose. 💙
I intend to be more mindful today. I want to take in all of my surroundings and really absorb what there is to offer. Today I will be mindful of my emotions and how they affect others. Furthermore, I will use this intention to cultivate my relationship more and create a loving atmosphere for both of us.
It was hard to find what really matters for me today. But i guess it was the intention to find it what actually mattered
Morning intention
I intend to be kind- to others, to myself. (I hardly slept last night.)
I chose to take care of my self today, to let God talk to me and guide me.
I learned that it is important to have the mind connect with your heart to achieve peace.

Morning Intentions
I can do this . I set my intentions to have piece in my head today. To take care of Ron today. To check on my Mom today. And to be healthy today. Mostly, to be at peace within myself today.

I will be calm and focused today to get my schoolwork done, instead of procrastinating 💕
I've got this 🙌🏻☮️
I felt extremely anxious and worried a lot about an in-person interview today. I don't need to worry, I know I've got this whether I get the job or not. I know I can make it through today with a smile on my face and that I've got this 🙌🏻💕
I listened to the 7 minute meditation twice through, to really find what’s most important to me today. This morning I’m tired and have a bit of a headache, and there are many things swirling in my head that I’m ‘meant’ to do. I was in two minds about meeting friends by the river for a barbecue - I see them during the week and, while they are all lovely, one is a little overwhelming. Thanks to this meditation, I’ve decided I don’t need that today. I need peace and quiet. I need time to reflect, to potter around my home, to make a start on some important tasks I’ve been avoiding ... and if I also avoid them today, that’s okay too. I work as a disability carer, and yesterday I spent time with my beloved Dad who has dementia. I love my job and I adore my Dad, but I’m often exhausted and drained by the end of the week. Today I need to care for myself. Thank you for this much needed meditation. I’m sure I’ll come back to it often. 💖

Drifting to an intention
Lots are visuals that usually take me to the garden where I spend a fair amount of time in our community there is concrete blocks that I have assembled into a wonky little Catapillar it’s about 10 feet long and even has a bit of rebar for antenna the front job will have succulents in the back or larger perennials it’s not so much and intention is delight enjoy to think that others will be able to find pleasure in whimsy in it so intention of pleasure and Delight
I meditate because I feel like I’m trying to calm myself down after a long day
I have always noticed that when I meditate all the time all the things in my mind just shut down and quieted my nerves and my soul can breathe and relax and my heart is really really red and it’s god’s way of saying follow me and I will show you the way my meditations always relax and calm me down when I am about to cry so don’t let that full you I also have a positive attitude like don’t worry be happy I have learned how to let stress go away from my life when I meditate and god’s peace is here with me and that color blue is helping me relax and stay calm and quiet while I sleep and I love to read while I sleep
For træt til at fokusere
Kunne ikke sove hele natten pga noget AG sagde til Steffen i telefonen. Og fordi vi startede aftenen.ed at Iris græd. så jeg besluttede mig for at nu skal jeg begynde at meditere. Det er på tide. Jeg kunne ikke koncentrere mig. Men bare stemmen fra instruktøren hjalp mig med at slappe af.. Jeg skulle sige min intention men jeg var usikker. Om det var at sove eller bliver bedre til ikke at stresse over ting så meget at jeg ikke kan sove. At give slip på det med AG og tro på mig selv. At have styr på min egen hjerne. Jeg er motiveret til at starte på meditation hver dag. Iris kan godt lave en smule lyde ved siden af uden at det forstyrrer mig for meget. Hvor meget skal man skrive for at det er nok? Den siger at jeg ikke har skrevet non endnu. Jeg ligger i sengen med Iris nu og hygger. Hun er simpelthen så dejlig. Klokken er næsten 8 og jeg skal til at vække Steff så vi begge kan få et bad. Jeg kan ikke finde på mere at skrive nu.
Jiva’s Voice
I can pull that wandering thought pattern apart and bring it back, bit by bit, to breath. To focus. To strength. And then flow out from there.
Loud and scattered
Are my thoughts in the morning! Back to dreams and yesterday, forward through the day and well beyond. I appreciated the continuous reminder about the questions and reflecting on them. Now I feel calmer and more focused 😊
i didnt can focus so much, because i am not an animal, i am nice woman, single mother, human. wondering why my closed ones and others are testing me.
Meditation on Intentions
In doing this meditation I found myself wondering from time to time. I did manage to find some things about intention. There are two things that pop out for me on intention. To remain completely open to what people are saying snd the contribution they are making and at the same time be very honest with yourself. Staying your ground and following your gut feel is critical. Even when it is difficult.
