Set Your Intentions for the Day: A Short Guided Morning Meditation

set your intention

“When you set an intention, when you commit, the entire universe conspires to make it happen.”
Sandy Forster

Listen to the calming voice of your guide, Sara Raymond, for this short morning meditation, under 10 minutes, to set your intention for the day ahead.

Setting an intention for your day first thing in the morning is a practice that can set you on a mindful path to make choices that align with what is most important to you and lead to more ease and less unnecessary suffering in your life.
This is a great practice to be used daily for beginner meditators or those who have been meditating for a long time.

We hope you enjoy!
