Find Time for Clear, Strong, HeartBased Intentions in 2010

Finding time for New Year’s Resolutions is a fairly typical activity in early January of a New Year. Do you have a list for yourself?

How do you see it?  Is it a list of “shoulds” or is it your roadmap for making your dreams a reality?  Are your heart and your head in sync?

Making a new beginning is always a refreshing and grounding exercise.  You can give yourself a big boost for 2010 by making sure that you’re heading into the new year with goals that are both realistic and HeartBased!

I read an excellent and helpful article by Fia Crandell last week that reframes resolutions as intentions, and offers 6 tips for making your intentions the big, powerful, and life-changing guides that they can be! Here is Fia’s article, reprinted in its entirety … it was just that good!

6 Tips for Creating Powerful New Year’s Intentions!

I just love this time of year. It feels like things reset and you get to start fresh and new. The slate is now cleared and what you write on it is up to you.

This year I challenge you to create some real powerful intentions for yourself. Go for what you really want, use the power of this time of year to move you into the new territory that you belong in.

Over the last few years I have had the benefit of having some of my biggest and most important intentions become my reality. And it always started at this time of year. I wish this for you and have pulled together 5 important tips for creating powerful New Year’s Intentions for 2010 based on what I have learned. They’re simple but powerful.

So, here the first tip…

Tip #1: Set Believable Intentions: Make sure you don’t make your intentions way too far out there that you can’t honestly see them becoming your reality. The intentions I have set over the years that deep down I didn’t believe could really happen never did. And the HUGE intentions that I set that seemed almost impossible logically, but deep down I believed they could happen, did happen.

It’s a waste of your creative power to focus on those impossible to reach intentions and it often just leaves you feeling disappointed in the end because it’s not possible to create something unless you truly believe (not just wish) it can happen.

I know you have the power to create amazing things this year, so go for what you really want, just make sure the deeper part of you truly believes it can happen.

If you do have a way out there desire but you don’t believe it can happen in a year, break it down and see what you DO believe you can create in 2010, and use that for your intention. It will have much more power behind it and is WAY more likely to become your reality because you believe it can happen.

…and tip #2…

Tip #2: Let go of the “How”: If you really want intentions that have a better chance of becoming your reality, forget about the how. Leave the how up to the Universe.

One of my most powerful New Year’s intentions I made a few years ago, that became my reality a short 5 months later, was to be doing the work that I loved full-time. And you know what? It came about in a totally unexpected way. The “how” I saw in my mind was WAY off!

But did it matter? Of course not. Since that point in time I have been doing what I love full-time… Who cares how it happened!

That’s the thing about the “how”. Our minds are HORRIBLE at coming up with a “how” that is any good. Our mind typically leaves out important pieces like happiness along the way, fun, and feeling good!

So this year, even if you can see a lot of the “how” for yourself, allow space for the mystery, the wonder and synchronicity to bring you what you want in a way you couldn’t even dream of. Choose your intentions to focus on what you really want and hand the “how” over to the Universe.

Tip #3: Make Sure Your Intentions Have Some Fuel! Intentions will go nowhere without emotion and desire behind them. Go for something that would really make your heart sing. Or at least work with your intentions until they feel exciting to you.

Emotion and desire will drive you forward and have the Law of Attraction helping you out as well!

Tip #4: Clarity = Power: If there’s one thing I’ve learned it’s that when you’re clear and you set an intention, EVERYTHING moves to support you in its manifestation.

And I don’t mean clear about the specifics, many people get into specifics and they lose the emotion, and that’s no good. I mean you want to be CLEAR in your own heart, mind and being that YOU WANT THIS and IT IS TIME! That’s the kind of clarity that moves mountains.

Choose intentions that are more like a choice, even if it seems like quite a stretch. Make them choices you are making for yourself. FULLY expect the Universe to back you up and help bring to you as your reality.

I made this kind of choice two specific times with my New Year’s Intentions. And each one I was SO clear on and KNEW in my bones had to happen. I WANTED to happen. And with that choice at this time of year, it set forth all of the support I needed to make it be my reality. And each time they came about 5-6 months after setting them, and they were both huge stretches for me, but I believed it could happen even though I had no idea how.

So what do you really want? What are you SO clear that you must have and that you believe you can have in 2010?

Get clear now and make your choice!

That’s not all…

Tip #5: Write Your 2010 Intentions Down! I can’t count how many times I’ve written an intention down, small or big, and they somehow happen without any effort on my part. How cool is that? Whatever you do, be sure you take some time to write down your 2010 intentions. And I’d have them posted somewhere around you so you can focus on them throughout the year.

Tip #6: Write Out Your 2010 Intentions in the Present Tense. I know that a huge part of manifesting the Intention of being full-time self-employed is that I made no reference to my part-time job in my intentions. And as an extension on this, when I walked out of the door at the end of each 3 day work week in my old Engineering job, I pretended that it didn’t exist to me. I acted as if I WAS fully self-employed.

This was so effective I remember on my way home on my last day having the thought “Ah, back to normal!” What?! Normal? But it was. Because I had been practicing it as my reality for 5 months straight, there was no future to it, it was here now.

So write out your intentions as if they are your reality today. If you see it as something happening “one day” it will forever be in the future. Claim your new reality now.

Simple tips that have made all the difference for me!
