Getting the best information via your intuition means setting intentions. Intention is everything in the spiritual realm. Therefore, it is important to set your intentions every day. Intention setting first thing in the morning sets your course for clearer sailing for the rest of your day. Call it whatever you want – an invocation, a prayer – setting your intentions in the morning, makes sure you are best aligned with your guides, and helps your intuition function at its highest level all day long.
Just like staying on a diet, or disciplining yourself to study, setting your intentions requires you to be mindful about receiving guidance through your intuition. It forces you to be clear on that fact that you want to connect with your guides and Higher Self, and focuses you why and how you want to use your intuition. Ensuring that you remember to set your intentions every day keeps your “spiritual hygiene” nice and aligned with your highest soul growth. It keeps the information from your intuition as authentic and accurate as possible.
I would advise including the following components in your daily intention setting. Most of them are self-explanatory, but if they aren’t I can explain them more. I have included a script of what I use in my own daily intentions setting, but ideally you should adapt your own intentions to your own personal beliefs, preferences and needs.
a) Be thankful for what you have already been given. Why would the Universe throw some more your way if you don’t already appreciate what you have?
“I thank you, thank you, thank you, for all the abundance and good that I have already received.”
b) Call on your Higher Self and Guides. You need to specifically ask for who you wish to connect with.
“Higher Self, power animals, spirit guides, I ask for your help today to lead me in the direction of my soul’s highest growth.”
c) Ask for assistance in tuning up your talents to their highest use. We are here on Earth to use our talents to their best expression to help ourselves and others.
“I ask that you make me the best channel that I can be. Help me to best discern and provide the most relevant information, in the most understandable way for myself or others in our soul’s highest growth.”
d) Be specific in asking for what you need. Is there something specific today you need help with? The more specific your request can be the more specific the guidance can be. Being specific also strengthens your intuition.
“I ask that you help me today with knowing the right things to do and say in this job interview, so that I may move towards the job that is in my soul’s highest growth.
e) Make sure you practice good spiritual hygiene, so you keep only the guests you invite in your energy field.
“I close off my aura to all but my own Higher Self and those Beings of the Highest Vibration who are with me at the choice of my soul.”
You may wish to use some type of closing or gratitude again. Some folks also use protections as part of their intention setting. Your practice will vary with your personal beliefs, preferences and specific needs from day to day. However, covering the basic elements will help you tune in to your best intuitive information all the time.
I give thanks to Andrea Hess at Empowered Soul, Slade Roberson from Shift Your Spirits, and the wise counsel of my great friend Lisa Wichtenheiser from Practically Intuitive, from whom I have all borrowed from, to craft my own daily intention setting script.
