The start of every dream begins with an intention. And the key to mindfulness is all about setting intentions. To get where you want to go, you have to think about how you're going to get there. And setting intentions helps to create clarity to help you achieve those goals. Deepak Chopra says, "An intention is a directed impulse of consciousness that contains the seed form of that which you aim to create. Like real seeds, intentions can’t grow if you hold on to them. Only when you release your intentions into the fertile depths of your consciousness can they grow and flourish." Want to live a more authentic life? Try setting an intention for the day while meditating. Mindbodygreen also has a great post for setting intentions to create an authentic life.
