With the New Year among us, it’s time to put the energy we summon for resolutions into setting intentions for those goals. Just writing down what you want to do in the new year isn’t going to cut it. Setting intentions, especially at the beginning of a new year, is crucial in guiding one’s actions toward achieving a happier and more fulfilling life. Intentions represent the aspirations, hopes, and desires that can bring happiness, and acting on them forms the road to realization.

Why Must We Set Intentions?

To start with, setting intentions creates a framework of clarity. Clarity of purpose streamlines our focus and helps us connect with what truly matters to us, aligning our actions with our authentic selves. This increases inner peace, joy, and, ultimately, happiness.

Furthermore, setting intentions gives a sense of purpose. This feeling contributes to a sense of meaning in life, creating feelings of happiness and fulfillment. It’s akin to a roadmap that shows where you are and where you wish to go, increasing the probability of experiencing the joy of achievement.

Here are some benefits and skills we can hone to learn how to set intentions and live intentionally.

Priming The Subconscious Mind 

When we set an intention, we instruct our subconscious mind to pay extra attention to any events, information, or opportunities that could bring us closer to achieving that intention. In this way, we seem ‘luckier’ because our subconscious mind filters our reality in a way that favors our chosen outcome.

The best way to prime the subconscious mind is meditation. Connecting with the world around you isn’t as simple as closing your eyes and humming. Find a space in your home or outside that is quiet and distraction-free. Then, settle in, get comfortable, and empty your mind of anything that may be ailing you. Forget about the deadlines and the work and the messy house. Imagine that you are just another mote of light in the universe. Then, once your mind is empty, find a connection. This meditation is a fantastic way to prime the mind and prepare it for some intentional living.

The Law Of Attraction

The Law of Attraction posits that like attracts like, which means your thoughts and emotions create your reality. Setting clear and positive intentions for the New Year invites positive energy into your life. Thus, these positive experiences and outcomes are not just random strokes of luck but results of a universe aligning with your intentions.

Manifestation is a really popular fad right now, and for good reason! Positive thoughts attract positive moments, so don’t diss the law of attraction. It may be the strongest tool in your arsenal for living intentionally.

Focus and Motivation

Setting intentions keeps us focused and motivated toward a specific direction. When you are clear on what you want and driven to make it happen, you become more proactive in seeking opportunities. You are less likely to give up when facing obstacles, thus increasing the chances of favorable outcomes or ‘good luck.’

Focus can be hard to muster, especially in a world full of distractions. With setting intentions, you can help hone your mind only to see the things that matter. Forget about the minor distractions: what matters most is the here and now.

Increased Self-Understanding

Setting intentions requires self-reflection and honesty. By identifying what we want to bring into our lives, we can better understand who we are and what makes us happy. As a result, we are more likely to attract events and relationships that align with our authentic selves, therefore increasing the occurrence of beneficial and lucky experiences.
