About the Episode

With this week comes a new moon in gemini and the opportunity to plant new seeds and set new intentions for the rest of the year.

After the craziness that has been 2020 so far, some of us may be sensing a light at the end of the tunnel. Let’s use this transition as a way to manifest the life that was meant for us.

You have the opportunity to start over with each new day, and with each new moon. Tune in to set your new moon intentions and watch them bloom.


[00:49] Welcome to Yoga Girl Daily and happy Monday, you guys! It is a brand-new week, it's Monday! The past couple of weeks I have actually had Mondays that felt like they were Mondays, which I feel is saying a lot, just that. And this week I'm really excited to set an intention because I want us to set an intention that's going to last longer than just this week ahead. If you weren't aware, we have a new moon coming our way this week and a new moon is a perfect time to plant new seeds. The time around the new moon is when we really want to get clear on what we want to create in our lives. It's the perfect time to set really good intentions. Our past couple of weeks on Yoga Girl Daily and in the Yoga Girl world, we've had intentions that have led up to this week that have been really perfect now that I look back and really see this clearly. We had an intention around clearing things out, letting things go. Then we had a week where we had an intention around getting really clear and organized and it's leading up to this space right now where I really want us to set big intentions for the future of our own lives.

[02:07] We are at a new beginning right now. We are leaving some of our past behind, we’re about to embark on a brand new chapter and I'm kind of thinking that these times that we're in right now, it's almost as if we are starting a new year. I look back at my new year's intentions and obviously most of them have been thrown completely out the window because everything has changed. We're almost halfway through this year already, but all the goals that I wanted to accomplish, the dreams that I had set, the things I wanted to create, I had to put all of that on the back burner and my reality right now is totally different as I'm sure it is for you. So how about taking this week with this new moon kind of feeling like we're on the cusp of this pandemic slowing down or maybe even ending sometime soon?

[02:53] I think we can all feel and see that there is light at the end of this tunnel. How about we take this week and imagine right now it's new year’s. Imagine, right now, that feeling that you have around the very end of December knowing you're closing a chapter, beginning a new chapter ahead. This week is a really great week for us to set new intentions, to set new goals, to really sit down and think about what kind of life is it that you actually want to manifest? What kind of life is it that you want to live? We have spent these past months preparing the soil of our own lives. We have thrown things out. We have created new realities for ourselves. We've had so many epiphanies and realizations and massive things and insights that have come our way. All of this has prepared us right now to set a great intention so we can start to actually create and live the life we truly want.

[03:51] So maybe this is kind of weird. We've never had a Monday morning or a Monday intention like this on Yoga Girl Daily before, but this week we are setting the intention to set an intention! Is that okay? I think that's okay. So actually giving yourself some space this week to have a proper ceremony around intention setting. And if you want to have that happen on Friday, we have a new moon in Gemini coming on Friday. I'm going to do a big new moon ceremony on if you want to join us, really setting some time aside this week so you can journal on and contemplate and meditate on and talk about and dream about what kind of life you actually want to create, so that you make sure that your intentions are actually aligned with what you want. Perhaps the intentions you set for the beginning of this year don't match anymore.

[04:39] I really feel that way on a personal level. I have new goals now. I have new dreams now. I can envision and imagine myself living a different life where I am more aligned with what my soul actually craves. So this week, I will plant seeds and set intentions for what I truly want in life. That is our intention this week. I am really excited so that we can actually feel super clear around what our intentions are, what our goals are, what we want to create and manifest, and then the weeks that follow this one, it's going to be time to take some action. So get ready for that. Thank you so much for setting this intention with me to set a clear intention, not just for the week, right? The intention we're setting right now is for the whole rest of this year, for this big new chapter in our lives. You deserve to live the kind of life that you've always dreamt of. Let's take time right now to plant those seeds, so at the end of the year, we can watch all of this come into bloom. Thanks for listening. Yoga Girl Daily will be back tomorrow.
