How I Set My New Year Intention

new year new intentions

Hi my friends,

Wishing you all a happy and healthy new year!

I hope these first few days of 2022 have provided you with feelings of optimism and hope for the future. I know we all faced varying degrees of struggle, difficulty, and uncertainty in 2021, and it feels so good to begin again in this new chapter of life.

If you’ve been reading the blog for some time now, you know that one of my favorite practices to ring in a new year is to choose an intentional word that serves as a guide, an aim, and an overarching theme for my year. I tend to shy away from setting resolutions, as I find they often lead to unhealthy habits and negative self-talk, but I do love setting a solid, aligned intention.

If you’ve never taken part in this practice, the beautiful thing is, it’s incredibly easy:

  • Sit in a quiet space and close your eyes.
  • Take a few deep, cleansing breaths to get connected to your body and your intuition.
  • In this space, ask yourself, “What is my desire, my intention for this new year? How do I want to feel in 2022?”

Notice the very first answer that pops into your mind. See how that feels, if it fits. Avoid overanalyzing, or trying to force the “right” answer. There might be a few words that come to mind, but I find it best to hone in on one that feels the most aligned with your heart for you. When you’ve made a choice, sit with the word and that intention.

What does your life look like with this intention at play? How do you feel with it as a part of your life? Allow your mind to get imaginative and visualize this year under your aligned intention. Take a moment to let your intention truly sink in your psyche. When you’re ready, you can open your eyes.

If you feel called, you can take out a journal and free write a bit about your intention, asking yourself, Why does this word resonate with me for this particular year? Feel free to jot down some of the details of the life you envisioned with this intention at play. Remember, when we desire something, and we take aligned action, our intentions come to life. They happen for us in the ordinary moments of the day,  creating the extraordinary life we wish to live.

This year, I have chosen the word ‘believe’ as my 2022 guide. These past two years have been quite challenging for me personally, and the word ‘believe’ feels so aligned in remembering that good things are always on the horizon, and the “life of my dreams” is real and here for me.

If you feel called to share, I’d love to hear your 2022 intention words, let me know in the comments below. I can’t wait to hear what you choose!

Wishing you all the most abundant, prosperous, healthy, and happy year to date.

xo, Michelle
