{weekly intention} flow

weekly intentionevery monday, i share my intention for the week and welcome you to do the same.

this is not about setting goals or creating to-do lists and working our tails off to achieve them. this is about taking some time to be quiet and still and ask “what do i need this week?” and setting an intention from there to align ourselves with that. it’s about paving the way for success, joy and dreams come true to find us throughout the week.

hello new week i love you already!

this week i’m on vacation from work to catch up on writing.  i scheduled this vacation before i quit my job because i have a bunch of really fun writing projects coming up for next year and i was having a hard time finding time to work on them.  i am also stockpiling really great blog post ideas for ABCcreativity and i want to start actually writing them.

every morning now i wake up feeling so happy.  so excited i can hardly keep from bouncing out of bed.  filled with inspiration and ideas and complete faith about what is coming next for me.  i feel so good about what i have already created with my business and what is coming next.

i want to channel all of that into my writing this week.

i want my writing to flow flow flow.

so i am writing a ton of blog posts for three different blogs and working on a few e-courses.  my plan was to create one e-course to start in january and it was going to be about living your creative magic.  as i work on it it keeps expanding.  now i’ve for three e-courses i am working on all at once.  so this week i want to keep going with that and try to get one of them to a point where i can share the details with you.

so my intention this week: enjoy the heck out of my creative flow

    Good morning, Andrea,

    Love what you’re doing. I also enjoy writing, letting it flow, but I don’t blog, just on Facebook and my Marble Composition book. Yesterday I went to the beach with my boys, and it was the perfect setting to let my writing flow…I wrote pages and pages, I even interviewed myself with about 25 thought-provoking questions. I also wrote my intention for this week Dec 6 – Dec 12. It reads like this: “In the next 7 days I can buy and drink 7 gallons of water and drink 1 a day so I can see my progress. It’s very important to be able to see the 10 vitamins I take daily because it makes me want to stick to my plan. Before I didn’t like to even take 1 iron pill, but I made it a fun practice to take my pill packet in order to feel strong/powerful. This week I also want to eat different types of salads, fruits and vegetables every day. I want to increase my intake of healthy foods, and I also want to continue walking as exercise.”

    I intend to clear out and recharge. In & outside my body, in my studio, in my business partnership. and even our house. (Thanks for the great idea!)

    Thanks as always Andrea!

    This week, I’m going to luxuriate in the rest I get and the energy when it comes. I’m also going to look for joy, be joyful, be joy!

    I made a New Moon intention…and I think I”m going to apply it for this week too. To always see and acknowledge my worth/value even when it feels like no one else does.

    I love your intention and the joy you are facing the week with. Good luck!

    Love it Andrea, I will have to do one of your classes, isn’t it great when things just flow so beautifully.

    I loved in your meditation when you said, let your intention lead the way. Gave me a great visual. My intention this week is to determine a narrower focus for the coming year to what’s most important. I already began today by eliminating one responsibility that had nothing to do with that focus. Nice to meet you through TTAP.

  12. […] Andrea Schroeder sends out a reminder every week to set an intention for the upcoming week. Here’s mine this week… If you’ve been reading for a while, then you know that I’ve been struggling with exhaustion and low-energy for a while.  I’ve found out why I’ve been so tired (sleep apnea) and have been given a CPAP machine to help with that.  Although there has been some progress it hasn’t been as fast as I would have liked.  So…this week, instead of being frustrated with the progress I’m going to luxuriate in my rest so that I really enjoy it and also relish the energy that comes in fits and spurts lately–so that I wring every second of joy out of that too! My house is slowly coming together again.  When I was so tired it was hard to keep up with the tidying, etc.  It’s not TOO bad but not where I’d like it to be, but it’s getting there.  I’m going to enjoy the clean and tidy rooms around my house too. And…I’m going enjoy the process of setting up my Christmas tree and putting out my decorations.  I have ALWAYS LOVED the Christmas season and the joy, peace, and spirit of it.  But over the last few years that has stopped for several reasons.  One of them is because the spiritual practice I was following didn’t really support/follow it.  The other is more personal…when I was a child I LOVED Christmas, I used to get so excited that I could hardly sleep and very seldom slept well on Christmas Eve.  I would wake in the morning and sneak downstairs to see what Santa had brought me and play quietly (I think I was quiet), until the rest of the family was up.  I guess I really just felt so loved by the presents I received and was so excited to see what had been wrapped up just for me.  Also, it was a time of family.  We spent the time with cousins, aunt, uncle and much loved grandparents.  When my grandmother died, a big part of Christmas died with her for me–our family just didn’t seem to know how to fill the void she left behind.  Either at Christmas or any other time of year.  She was a woman filled with the joy of her family and also loved Christmas and would be as excited as I was.  Over the years, my brother’s and I have gotten older and set in our ways and the joy has gone out of the Christmas time.  I don’t know how to bring it back–well, I can’t bring it back for my family, but I can for myself. So, here’s to the joy of the season.  I’m going to decorate my house this week in all my crazy decorations and my work cubicle.  Because I LOVE to do that, it’s one way I share the joy of the season with others.  And…I’m going to do some baking, and all of the other things I used to do to relish in this time of year. Okay…now I feel like going out and buying presents… With joy in my heart… Thanks! C. […]
