Intention of Intention – In and Out of Retreat

All of us at Bali Silent Retreat – guests, volunteers and staff – have been working with the power of intention over the last few weeks; setting intention leading up to the New Year for a direction and focus for the next 12 months.

Every yoga or meditation class opens with an intention allowing the group to align to that focus, lifting the vibration, and supporting each member of the group to deepen their personal experience within the safety of the group field.

Much the same, on our personal journey, each of us, when we set an intention and write it down, giving it weight, value and focus each day, or even a few times a week, alignment begins. Taking the time to affirm our commitments to intention, as well as monitor progress along the way is key to experiencing the shift and manifesting the intention.

As we welcome in the New Year, it is time to start ‘feeling into the intentions’, with the hopes and dreams wished for. Take the time to check into how they are unfolding… Do you need to take action? Are you on track?

Taking the time to contemplate in silence or stillness allows the opportunity to look within, to ask these questions and manifest our intentions in a smooth and easy manor.
