Intent: Planting and Nurturing Your Garden of Intentions

Mallika Chopra wants to encourage you to establish your own garden of intentions. She believes that if you plant a seed of your intent, small beginnings can yield beautiful flowers.

You can write your intent in a sentence. Write it on a piece of paper, or online among others to get support.

Mallika suggests that you make a conscious point of remembering your intent throughout your day. Expect what you have written to bear fruit.

Mallika Chopra:

To start a journey on your own of planting your own garden of intentions is really simple. You can do this either on my website intent.com or you can just do it at home on a piece of paper, and start with one intent a day and just write it in a sentence.

It can be really short, really simple, in fact part of the exercise is encapsulating it in one sentence and just make it part of your daily routine. Think about what your intent is today. It may be as simple as just getting through a stressful day.

I once found that one of the most powerful intents I had was in a day where I had a lot of turmoil going on and my intent was to come back to that place of peace and groundedness, and what I found is that throughout the day as I would start to wear away from that I’d remember, “Oh you know what, I wrote that intent this morning,” and I’d come back to that. So I find that very powerful exercise. It’s just writing that simple intent every day and then releasing it, release it out to the universe.

So what we do on our site is people write, type their intent, hit ‘click’; it goes out there and then what the Internet allows is that ability to share, to get support, to get comments.

I remember once I posted the intent, my intent is to be a good mother, and I got so much support but then I also got advice from another mother which said, “You know, to be a good mother put your cell phone off from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m.
