I will not bow down and be a slave to attachment.
I will not walk in the valley of fear.
I will not ransom my soul for a dollar not even a million could bring me near.
I will not bow down to mediocrity.
I will not drink from the cup of greed. I will not hustle the Holy Spirit.
I would not dare. I would not dare.
I do not seek for vain glory.
My place is with the humble and the free.
Truth is my light and my salvation.
Love is my key, it opens every door before I get there.
It is my destiny. I will not bow to any idols.
I will not bow in deceit.
I will not drink from the cup unforgiveness
I will take the road less traveled.
If it means I can BE free.

First of all there is no right way or wrong way to set an intention. Life is so simple and sometimes unintentionally we humans make it complicated. I will share with you my practice. Feel free to tweak it and get as creative as you like with yours.
It started over five years ago, I started setting intentions instead of resolutions. I think it was because year after year of making a resolution that I would quickly forget. I got tired of making resolutions. So that is when I decided to set an intention. I mean I was living a intentional life anyways so, It just made sense to me. Then when I looked up the word intention in the dictionary I was hooked. Here is the definition I read.
When you set an intentional course of action that is aligned with your truth and highest good it becomes much easier to align your actions with and easier to stay motivated all year long. Once I set an intention. I post it on a sticky note and reflect upon it all through out the year. It is especially helpful when I am distracted. The post it note helps me re-calibrate, reflect and realign with my truth and intention and I love it.
Its funny cause some years I know exactly what will be my intention ( like last year) other years ( like this year) I don’t know right away. There was one word that stood out to be starting the third quarter of 2012. It is now on the list for my intention for 2013. The other two words came through prayer and meditation.
Here are a few simple easy practical tips you can use to set a yearly intention.
1.) Through prayer, meditation pick a word or few words to set as your intention. .Once you pick a word if you like, you can attach it to an affirmation, sacred scripture, mantra, desired feeling or prayer. Whatever feels right for you. I usually attach mine to a affirmation or desired feeling.
2.) Once you pick your word. W rite it down and post it where you can see it everyday. I once met a man who was very creative and decided to hire a man from Esty to hand carve him his word of intention which was ” joy”. He said it cost like $5.00 Then he would keep it where he could see it all year long . At the end of the year he would pick his next word and use the old one as a home decoration. Gives a new meaning to ” Good Intentions” His home is filled with his wooden words of good intentions and positive energy. Love it!
It is really that simple! Just remember keep it simple and there is no right way or wrong way. Ok, now I will show you mine if you show me yours.:) I will go first. Here is my intentions for 2013
1. Ease: I plan to work with ease it feels good to even say it. I think because it reminds me of the word easy. The definition of ease is a state of rest, relaxation, or leisure: Freedom from difficulty, hardship. Freedom from pain, worry, or agitation. Love it. Being a busy CEO and Founder ease is exactly what I need to set as a intention and to align myself with.
3. Truth Seeker: I plan to seek truth, authenticity, transparency, realness, truth and speak my truth and connect with truth and nothing but the truth so help me God.
There you have it and now its your turn to share. In the comments section. Can’ t wait to read your response and feel free to share this article with your friends.
On a side note: I really feel the Mayans had it right about the end of time as we know it. I want to share a quote with you that is so poignant and my sentiments exactly. Enjoy!
”According to the Mayan calendar, December 21, 2012 marks the end of non-time and the beginning of time. It is the end of the Macha and the beginning of the Pacha. It is the end of selfishness and the beginning of brotherhood. It is the end of individualism and the beginning of collectivism, the end of hatred and the beginning of love. The end of lies and the beginning of truth. It is the end of sadness and the beginning of joy. It is the end of division and the beginning of unity.”
-President Evo Morales of Bolivia to the U.N.

About missing you! Yes, like an old friend that you have not talked to in a while. I am missing connecting with you here on the blog and I thought you might be missing me too xox. In fact I want to hear more from you more often in the future. I would love to know if you have any questions you would like me to answer? I am collecting question to answer on my Vlog coming soon. Or if you just want to send a thank you letter or love note, suggestions, request. I always love those too! Here is my email addy firstname.lastname@example.org
When I looked in the old worn box, inside was the most kind ,sweet and precious handmade scarves, crotched hats, and all in an assortment of rainbow colors. Just looking at them made you smile and feel happy.
I mentioned to the receptionist how sweet it was for the cancer center to offer such nice scarves and hats to the chemo patients at the center.
The receptionist smiled and said” a kind woman donates and brings them to the center each week”.
The nurse registered my aunt for her appointment and we all waited for her to go to the treatment room.
As I sat there, I started to think to myself. I would really like to do something kind and loving for the patients at the cancer center. After a few days of brainstorming, I decided I would create supportive, encouraging paintings and donate them and that’s, just what I did.
However, the sign on the old worn box lingered and made an impression on me that day. I thought to myself! How many times do people forget to really take what they need in life. Can you imagine if everyone would start to take what they needed and when they needed it? How much more simple and kind life would be. Life is so fragile. We are not promised tomorrow. We must make the most of this precious life we have been given. Everyday! We must have fun and enjoy life to the fullest. Here are few simple tips to help encourage you to start to live in the present and start to take what you really need in life.
1. Give yourself permission: To put yourself first and take what you
really need and when you really need it . Example: Could be as simple as
a nap, vacation, quick break, ask for that raise on the job, start that
business, start that mission work or non-profit, maybe buy that new piece of furniture
you been needing.
2. Stop putting yourself last: When we put ourselves last you are taking
your own power away. You are telling the universe and everyone around you
that you are not worth anything. Dear heart, that is so far from the truth.
You are worth 1000% of the love and energy you give away each day to everyone else.
3. Take the help: When others offer you help, take it. You are not
superwomen nor superman so be willing to take and ask for help when you
4. Don’t feel guilty: When you take what you really need. Enjoy it and savor it and be
present in the moment and really appreciate it.
5. Give thanks: Be grateful for the opportunity to take what you need and
always be grateful for all your blessings.
6. Less is more: Do not feel like you have to take everything and do
everything and be everywhere. Just be yourself.! Give up on trying to
compete with everyone else or needing the approval of others to feel like
you are enough or important. Gorgeous, you are enough just by being you. Remember only
take what you really need in life. To much of anything is never good.
7. Be a Giver: After you take what you need in life. Give to others what they may need. Look for ways to be of service.
There is no greater joy in life then being a giver. The gift is in the giving!
I hope these few tips gave you something to think about. I hope they will encourage, inspire and help you to take what you need in life and encourage you to allow others in your life to take what they need too. If more people would take what they needed and only what they need and only when they need it. There would be more happy, content and peaceful people in our world and there would be a lot less anger, resentment, anxiety, burn out and overwhelm. So take what you need!

It’s in our deepest vulnerability that our deepest glorious beauty lies.
When we are raw, naked and exposed
The Light that shines from deep within is revealed
If you are brave enough
Take off the mask’s
There is nothing to be afraid of
The glorious, imperfect and yet perfect soul
Cracked, crazy, wanting, giving, sharing, craving
What a Glorious Beauty……
