New Year's Intention Setting Ceremony for 2022

Join Rachel for her infamous New Year's Intention Setting Ceremony for 2022! Arrive at the doorstep of 2022 with your intentions clear in all areas of your life; home, mind, body, and soul. Grab a journal and a pen and lets get started!

First, in order to fully prepare, it is important to access and awaken the body and you'll do just that with Surya Namaskar, or Sun Salute A. Move with the breath and allow yourself to embody a sense of purpose, a sense of what you want to call in, and become open to receive.

You'll then sit and journal on:

What do you long for the most in 2022?

Next, you'll contemplate the 4 main areas of your life and what you want to manifest in each area of home, mind, body, and soul. This will help you to get super clear on each area and rather than have a general intention, you will be able to clearly ask the universe for exactly what it is you want to receive...and so it is.

The 4 Journaling Prompts Are:

For my home I need...
For my mind I need...
For my body I need...
For my soul I need...

You will then take a break to process it all and give yourself a chance to embody those intentions with a gentle yoga sequence. Move into a soft Tabletop (Bharmanasana) position and then a Seated Forward Fold (Paschimottanasana and Janu Sirsasana) sequence to invoke the limb Pratyahara (withdrawal of senses) and the practice of going within. Breathe life into your body and into your intentions. Finish in Cow-Faced Pose (Gomukhasana).

Come back to your comfortable seat and begin to journal again, this time on:

In 2022 I am saying yes to...

In 2022 I am saying no to...

Then, find a word that stands out in each area to find a sense of direction.

Then, state a clear intention.

My intention for 2022 is...

Let the 4 words be the guiding light and then you can find your affirmation.

In 2022 I will...

Lastly, examine your journal. What one word stands out to you the most? That is your word of the year.

May you be happy, may you be healthy, may your heart be peaceful and joyous, and may you enter into the New Year clear, aligned, and ready for what’s to come. Happy New Year!
