Self Dare #3: Intend

intention defAn INTENTION is…

:  a determination to act in a certain way

:  what one intends to do or bring about

: the thing that you plan to do or achieve : an aim or purpose


“Knowing how you really want to feel is the most potent form of clarity you can have in your life,” says author of The Desire Map, Danielle LaPorte. “Look in the mirror and tell the truth: ‘How DO you want to feel?”


“What we set our sights on, is what we bring into being.
To be able to get what we want, we need to be clear on what that is.”

– C. Ara Campbell

Setting intentions has become a very potent practice that many employ as a way of supercharging manifestation in their daily lives especially during the New Moon,” says C. Ara Campbell founder of The Goddess Circle. “Setting intentions focuses our attention and zeros in our energy into a focused laser of potential.”

In her blog, Ara offers simple steps to supercharge your intention setting practice:
(we share four favorites here) 

1. Listen to your desires 

2. Tell it the way you want it to be 

3. Make space for what you want 

4. Use the New Moon

 (July 4th is the start of this month’s 3-day ‘new moon phase’) 


“While you can set intentions at any time, add some extra lunar energy to help them along. The New Moon is the perfect time to set your intentions. The Moon is in her darkest phase, so think of her like a plot of well tilled soil just waiting for you to plant your seeds of intent and for them to be nurtured as the light of the Moon returns.” – C. Ara Campbell
