Do It

my intention for this week is staying level - not getting to fired up or too fired down - but moving with a bit of grace and still trying to bring the grind to effort.

      Love that. I'm making an effort to listen to others and myself. I find I move too swiftly, and I never really meet people where they're at. That's a huge part of connecting with people - understanding how they receive you before lending your thoughts to them. I'm going to read 'How Can I Help?' by Ram Daas to help me think this through. This weekend, I set some intentions with friends and we burned them in a pot as we talked about them. It felt like we were doing some witchcraft, but the ceremony itself was really powerful.

      A couple of mine:

      "Listen to others and myself."
      "Pause your thoughts."
      "Put your heart over your head."
      "Focus on how to be rather than what to do. (The Do is driven by who you are)."

        Love this practice and those intentions! It's so easy to just rush rush rush and when talking with someone to really be focused on what you want to say and not necessarily on listening to what they're expressing. Slowing down and being intentional about listening can be a powerful way to enhance your connections with others. Get it Alessandra! :)

      Awesome! This sounds like a great intention. Trying to find the middle road! Thanks for sharing :).
