The best way to achieve your goal is by setting an intention.

Our intentions say a lot about us. Sometimes we set them consciously, and sometimes not. But how do we do it? How should we phrase it so it can work for us?

Try to focus on the content of the intention. Avoid using negative connotations. What does that mean?

For example, instead of saying, "I will never get a parking ticket," try saying, " There will always be an empty parking space for me." You can apply this to any intention you want to create.

Try to set intentions in longhand, using a pen and paper. There is a power in the physical activity of writing it down. You can apply this whether you are setting an intention or during meditation. Be concise, write it down, follow your intuition, use only positive connotation and surrender it to the Universe.

How Long Should You Meditate for?


If you are a beginner, you should meditate for at least ten to fifteen minutes every day. The most important thing is to be persistent and consistent.

The more you practice meditation, the more you can use it.

The greatest benefit is adding meditation to your routine, which means you are meditating daily. Don't forget to set reminders. You can also set a timer for 10 or 15 minutes (depending on how long you plan to meditate).


How to Prepare Space for Meditation

1. One of the best ways to prepare space for meditation is to have the right environment. In other words, you need to set up your workspace so that there is no clutter or distractions, as it will take you away from the task at hand into your world.


2, Let the lighting be in line with your mood. Different people have different opinions on what kind of room lighting works best when it comes to meditation. Some people are looking for a relaxing environment with soft light. Others are seeking enlightenment with bright white light. Some people want to personalize their use of lighting through colors.


3. Make sure no one can disturb you (lock the door if necessary). Put your phone on Do Not Disturb mode, so you are not distracted by notifications, texts, and calls.


4. Light candles and scent sticks. Candle meditation is a great way to relax your mind, body, and spirit. Some people use incense. Others light sage or burn scented sticks of wood in a censer.


5. Prepare all the necessary tools (journal, pen, headphones - if you do not meditate in silence)


6. Surround yourself with plants. The plants that we choose for our meditation room can help with the environment and our mental well-being. The plants in our room should be selected carefully and researched to ensure that they are suitable for meditation.
