I thank the Universe for giving me a place in the world today. I accept and look forward to all the miracles that await me.
Thank You for another glorious day of life so that I can again work toward the fulfillment of my purpose.
I intend to experience a wonderful, expansive, passionate day today. I will let nothing stop me from having a great day.
Imagine heading off on a hike or a sailing journey without setting a course. It could be a pretty dangerous trek, or at the very least be filled with aimless wandering. Starting the day without an intention is much the same. An intention, clearly stated and affirmed, sets your course for the day. Sure, you can still go off track, but there’s a better chance of staying on course when it’s begun with some direction. Ideally, an intention for the day is set before ever getting out of bed, before the sights and sounds of the outer world have a chance to distract the mind. An intention might sound like this, “Thank you for this day and my place in it. I intend to have a day filled with gratitude.” Another wonderful intention is, “With an open heart, I welcome this day and the amazing gifts that await me.” Not only does an intention set first thing in the morning align you with your goal, but it also aligns you with positive emotional energy, and that’s a great beginning to any day. If you’re one of those people who lays in bed lamenting that you don’t want to get up, you’ll find setting an intention particularly useful for shifting your resistant thoughts. Set the intention that feels right for you, take a deep breath, and then let it unfold, moment by beautiful moment.
