The winter solstice, on December 21, is coming up quick. It’s the shortest day of the year, of course, so you’re going to feel pressed for time—aside from that, most cultures see this day as a symbol of rebirth. From this point in the year forward, the sun will start to get stronger and the days also start to get longer again.
We believe in the power of intention and we’re thinking winter is a great time to cozily snuggle up with a cup of tea to reflect on time past as well as the future to come. The classic Vedic text, the Upanishads says, “You are what your deepest desire is. As your desire is, so is your intention. As your intention is, so is your will. As your will is, so is your deed. As your deed is, so is your destiny.” Winter seems to be the best time to reflect on what we want in our lives, but how? Here are 15 ways to set your powerful intentions for winter. Now get started and manifest them for growth.
1. Find a time to reflect.
Grab that mug of hot tea and light those candles before getting cozy with a journal or just your thoughts. Consider what areas of your life feel good to you and what areas need to change. Think about your career, relationships with others and passions you have.
