Ep 18: I Wish: How to Set an Intention

How to Set an Intention | Episode 18 Sunrise in Your Pocket .

Intentions, goals, dreams, desires. We hear so much about these at the beginning of the year. But what happens if you aren’t sure where to start with getting clear about what you want? In this week’s Sunrise in Your Pocket episode, I am sharing my process for how to set an intention that comes from your heart. Here is a hint: it all starts with a mindset shift. And side note, setting an intention is not just a beginning of the year practice. You can use this process at any time in the year. And stay tuned next week for part 2 in this series for the now what, how to embody your intention once you have it.

Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase.
