Are your thoughts drifting towards summer as this luminous season approaches in the Northern Hemisphere?
Do you have aspirations or dreams? Will you capture them or let them float by? The secret is to catch them, set an intention, and gently nourish them to be.
Summer has become – for me – a time to experiment, refocus, set new directions, draw loose threads together, and complete. Could this be due to my September birthday? A time of transition from one astrological year to another, birthdays often see an old agenda invisibly unfold into a bright new vision with a twist.
Or maybe it’s simply summer’s illusion of more space and time.
Last summer, I had a dazzling menu of experiments. I didn’t manage them all, but the one’s I did accomplish were significant – a digital sabbatical, a loving-kindness retreat, and a realignment of my digital engagement.
The growing warmth of the solar sphere must be at fault for popping these new action-oriented thought-kernals without notice into consciousness. No matter it’s a full month till the Summer Solstice, the commands spark forth.
Now, I’ll employ the power of a list to drive clarity and action. These are my emerging aspirations for the summer:
- Clear clutter (loose threads);
- Get ready for downsizing (new directions);
- Catch up on half-read books and start the new stack (completion and new directions);
- Take a month-long blogging break (experiment);
- Weed, trim, and beautify the garden (loose threads and new directions);
- Carve out more time for focused meditation and study (experiment);
- Clarify and invest in my career evolution (new directions);
Setting An Intention
It all boils down to setting an intention. Once I clearly articulate my aspirations, the best ones seem to manifest seamlessly, almost on their own. Sure there is effort and sometimes obstacles appear. But the clarity of direction seems to capture a momentum that catapaults me through.
Is summer calling you? Do you have aspirations or dreams for the summer? Does setting an intention help you manifest your dreams?
