Setting Intentions (Part II) – Checking Within Before You End Your Day: Evening / Sleep Time Intentions
While in bed and prior to closing my eyes to go to sleep, I do a review of my day. I ask myself some of the following questions:
- What are some of the spiritual lessons I learned today?
- Did I experience my stated morning intention?
- If yes, what happened? How did I feel?
Plus… I express gratitude for at least 10 things.
If I did not have any awareness of experiencing my morning intention—or even if I did—this is what I do next: I set sleep time intentions.
Here are some examples of my sleep time intentions:
It is my intention to…
- have deep, restorative sleep
- allow for the easy and gentle release of any energetic blocks and/or imbalances during my sleep
- experience and reinforce—on any level possible—the intended quality I stated in the morning intention
- awaken with the remembrance of any messages received during my sleep state
- remember to state my morning intention prior to opening my eyes after waking
- get out of bed feeling invigorated, refreshed, and with renewed energy.
As a result of practicing both morning and sleep time intentions, my experiences of getting out of bed and moving forward with the day ahead has dramatically improved. I have also noticed that I am more attentive and focused on the positive aspects of the people, things, and events I encounter during the day.
I AM surrounded, supported, upheld and uplifted by Spirit / God / Highest Power—each and every day and night!
And so it is.
You’ve got this!
