8,760 Hours in 2017 Mind Map Your Intentions

Remember there are 168 hours/week and 8,760 hours/year.
Where would you like this time to go in 2017? Organize your core values and key intentions into into categories such as happiness, fun, family, creativity, work, spirituality, giving etc. Consider turning these categories into Mind Maps.

HOW TO CREATE MIND MAPS
A term first made popular by British author Tony Buzan, “mind mapping” is a style of graphically depicting concepts related to a particular topic or idea. For the purpose of intention setting, a mind map is one way to visually represent your inner creativity and identify what lights you up. This can be a great place to start because there are no rules. A mind map evolves organically and can reveal your most authentic desires and needs. Add drawings, words, scribbles, color and anything that you connect with in a real way.

One of the most powerful mind maps is as simple as a circle. Inside the circle exists everything you could ever want or be, outside the circle is anything that you do not want. (Sometimes, it’s necessary to know what you don’t want first so that you can stay laser focused on what you do want.) Use your senses to identify what is inside your circle. How do you want to feel? What does it sound, smell, taste like? Use language that awakens your spirit and gets you excited!

Exercise: Mind Mapping
Draw a circle and inside the circle write what you want, outside what you don’t want.
Mind Map #1: Health
Mind Map #2: Happiness
Mind Map #3: Yoga
Mind Map #4: Fun
Mind Map #5: Finances
Mind Map #6: Giving
Mind Map #7: Personal Development (Learning)

The Power of YES in 2017 by Silvia Mordini

“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.” – John Lennon

THE POWER OF YES: When you say yes to something, you are automatically saying NO to something else. For instance, in my life exercising my right to say yes to meditating at the start of each day is a way of avoiding email, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram as the first things I do in the morning. Practicing yoga is a ritual I say yes to each day, and therefore, no to accumulating mental worry and stress. I have the privilege of saying yes to making healthy food choices with an implied no to junk food.

Each and every opportunity I have to say yes sets up a love boundary. This keeps out unhealthy habits or behaviors that diminish my joy. Yes gives me authority (adhikara) over writing my own life story instead of feeling as if it’s been given to me to simply play a part not of my own choosing. Yes puts me in the driver’s seat of my life instead of feeling like I’m sitting in back without any control of the wheel and the direction I go.

I am, after all, playing the lead role in my life story and not just that of an understudy.

***A Personal Yes List***
I have made a point at the beginning of each year to make a personal “yes list.” I’ve been doing this for eight years. I know it works. Write down the key things that give you strength and inspiration. Ask yourself: Do the items on this list support you in waking up each day with enthusiasm to live your best life? Does what you list empower you to feel more passionate about your intentions? Think about the power of YES in your life:
1. Are you conscious and alert to your yes choices?
2. Do you say yes more than you say no? Why?
3. What does saying yes mean to you?
4. What do you say yes to? Make a personal yes list.
*****
This is one of the exercises in my New Year’s Intention Booklet.

Tomorrow I’ll post my 2017 Personal YES List and would love to learn yours as well so we can support one another. Love you!

FREE New Year Intention Setting Workbook by Silvia Mordini

We don’t give ourselves enough credit for how far we’ve come. This week I hope you’ll take time to celebrate all your manifestations of the last year – even those that were challenging. Based upon this make sure that your intentions for 2017 are in alignment with your integrity and core values. Email me for your FREE Intention Setting New Years Booklet silvia@alchemytours.com or download from my Coaching Page here.

Just like the poses are a validity test for our breath, our 2017 Sankalpa (Intention) can be assessed as positive with a simple question: “Does this bring me joy?”

Other tests of the your #Intention can include:
-What is 1 small step I can take right now towards my intention?
-Will this promote a healthier and happier perspective?
I love the power of intention setting. It drives my life to help open hearted people seek out the joy that is your birthright. With humble gratitude to all my students it is an honor to serve you. You are a true blessing to me.

Let 2017 be a year of manifesting a deeper path to love and happiness.

Aham Prema!

Map Your Intentions to Manifest

When you break down the process of what true intention really is, you will find a process that unfolds before you. By applying this process, you create your intention. With a well defined MAP of your intentions they become easier to MANIFEST. On my #yogaretreats & trainings I will help support you through this process in practical and loving ways.

1. Know your purpose (Vision/Dharma): Your reason behind your intention is purpose. Having a purpose infers a more determined path.
2. Design your intent: This means a specific, measurable (quantitative and qualitative), plan of action. What, when, why, where, how.
3. Improve your aim (GPS): By improving your aim, you add to your target effort directed toward attaining your intention. Remember it’s hard to make a bull’s eye if you don’t know where you’re aiming.
4. Include smaller items that will take little effort: manifesting smaller things actually creates a steady flow of energy and teaches us to appreciate the smaller goals as well.
5. Manifest your Intentions: The goal is the result of your #intention, put into action and attaining it by thought out effort and consistent focus.

I joyFULLY hear a YES from the universe! 🙏☀️🎶

“Here, start living moment to moment totally and intensely, joyfully and playfully — and you will see that nothing goes out of control; that your intelligence becomes sharper; that you become younger; that your love becomes deeper. And when you go out into the world, wherever you go, spread life, playfulness, joy, as far away as possible — to every nook and corner of the earth.”

Reboot Your Internal GPS

“Going on retreat and surrounding ourselves with like minded folks that are living their dharma only helps us grow our passion. Why? Because passion is contagious. Enthusiasm is viral. From time to time we all need to step back and ask ourselves “where am I going with my life” in order to get our internal GPS system rebooted.”

Living Your Dharma

Living Your Dharma is the Heart of the Alchemy of Yoga

Dharma is the first word in the Bhagavad-Gita.

“The things you are passionate about are not random, they are your calling.”
― Fabienne Fredrickson

What is Dharma?

Sreyan svadharmo vigunah paradharmat svanusthitat;
Svadharme nidhanam sreyah paradharmo bhayavahah — (Chapter 3. Verse 35)

The Sanskrit word “dharma” has joined “yoga” and “karma” in common English usage. Dharma is often taken to mean “duty.” However, it is a whole lot more than this.

The Sanskrit word Dharma comes from the root “dhri” which means to uplift or uphold. Dharma literally refers to “that which upholds righteousness.” A sense of righteousness, of purpose and inspiration is extremely significant on the spiritual path.

Dharma can mean “law of the universe,” and/or one’s own individual mission or purpose. On the individual level, it can also mean a number of things. For example, in the Gita, Krishna points out to Arjuna that his Dharma is to be a warrior whether he likes it or not. He cannot escape his Dharma and he must fulfill it. Arjuna is a warrior for what is right and just. He is not just a warrior for fighting’s sake. His Dharma must be grounded in a proper purpose.

Dharma might be considered to have two distinct, yet mutually supportive components: our personal or individual dharma (sva-dharma) of unique qualities (traits, gifts, talents and abilities) that help to define our life’s path and our Sat Dharma or “true” dharma – that path of Self-Realization which is the birthright of everyone and shared by all beings.

When your life purpose is connected to your sva-dharma and sat dharma, it brings you joy and fulfilment. When disconnected from dharma, your purpose may feel confused and your efforts to be your happiest may feel thwarted.

“One could argue that dharma is a truth, a teaching, a practice and enlightenment itself.

Everything is expressing itself fully according to its nature, and thusly there are no duplicates and no failure. All that is created is unique. As individuals in this perfect whole, we are all ingredients that perfectly express themselves – every nuance and character contributes to the overall manifestation.” – David Starlyte

“It is better to do your own dharma even imperfectly,
than someone else’s dharma perfectly.”
-Bhagavad Gita

How are you different today than you were a year ago?

If you believe we are constantly changing then it seems to make sense that we would be different than we were a year ago. However, only closer inspection and self-study will reveal the truth. Are you, in fact, living with the brakes on, getting stuck in old patterns and conditioned responses?

You have 1,440 minutes today to check in and review your habits and mindfully diagnose which one’s increase your happiness set-point and which one’s need to be discarded.

“Nothing so needs reforming than other people’s habits.” – Mark Twain

By making time to listen to your heart you will clearly hear what you want to manifest in 2016. For me 2016 will be the year of living my most heartfully honest life, where I really live the YES of my heart’s intentions. However, before we plant the seeds of YES in our lives, it is important to reflect on what mental habits we have that are holding us back from choosing with our hearts.

Journaling: Take 15 minutes to write out your answers to the following questions.
1. Percent out how often you have past thoughts, future thoughts, present thoughts.
2. Do you see a pattern in your thoughts?
3. Do you overuse the same words or sayings?
4. How do you react when triggered?
5. What conditioned response do you see reoccurring during the day?
6. What routine or habit do you see in yourself at night?
7. How do your patterns/habits impact your personality?
8. Do you apologize too much?
9. What role does procrastination have in your life?
10. What are your positive habits? Which one’s do you no longer need to take forward?
11. How often do you try to change your habits or routine?
12. Have you tried to experiment with your conditioned responses?
13. What new patterns have you adopted this past year?
14. What is your habit in using social media? How does this impact your life?
15. Do you have a healthy or unhealthy stress habit?

How are you different today than you were a year ago?

“I learned to be with myself rather than avoiding myself with limitng habits;
I started to be aware of my feelings more, rather than numb them.”
– Judith Wright

P1100233

In order to change, we have to change something. As Theresa Albert writes about why resolutions fail, “This habit we have in North America of making resolutions and laughing at ourselves for breaking them is our collective way of accepting the status quo. But the cream of the crop manage to make enough change to stay on top. You can too.” When you look at the direction you want for your life, something has to change from the way you lived this past year. By understanding which habits no longer serve you then you can realize your best transformation.

Love yourself, love your day, love your life! — Silvia
