131: New Year Special – Releasing the Old and Setting Your Intentions


So, how are your New Year’s resolutions going? Are you keeping up with them or have you already let them fall by the wayside? We’ll let you in on a secret: it’s about intentions, not resolutions. And we’re here to help you get back on track to manifesting your desires.

The common misconception is that manifesting is hard—that in order to make your dreams come true you have to strive and stress. But the truth is, manifesting and getting set on your course to success simply requires courage and the ability to release. By letting go, you suddenly begin attracting the life you really want.

Here are our five steps to setting your intention:

1 – Get clear 

No wishful thinking. Get very specific about what you want to create and manifest. What do you want to achieve, by when?

2 – Detach 

Don’t be dependent on the outcome; know that the Universe may provide what you’ve asked for in a package different to how you’d imagined. Detach from the outcome and allow yourself to receive what comes without judgment.

3 – Check in with yourself

Where are you setting your intention from? Is it fear, anxiety or love? This will massively impact your manifestation, because like attracts like. Set your intention from an abundant place. Put yourself in a place of gratitude so you can set your intention lovingly.

4 – Feel it

Meditate on the feeling that you want to attract (not the opposite!). Even if you don’t know how to meditate, just give yourself a few minutes of quiet where you can feel what it’s going to be life to reach your goals. Sense the loving energy coming into your body.

5 – Write it down 

Writing your intention down sends a powerful message to your brain and the Universe. Feel and believe that everything you seek is seeking you. Know that it is all on its way to you now.

Letting go is something we all struggle with, but it is one of the key things you can do to heal your body and your soul. The Sedona Method was started in the 1950’s by Lester Levinson. After being given just a few months to live, he began to release emotions and negative thoughts and accept his death—he healed his body and lived on for another 30 years. The Sedona philosophy, in a nutshell, is: welcome and bless everything in your life, the good and the bad.

What you’ll learn:

  • How to set your intention.
  • How to be unselfish in your relationships.
  • How Allison and Susy’s new year resolutions are going!
  • How to shake up your exercise routine.
  • Suzy’s experiments with internet dating.
