In yoga class, you may hear a teacher talk about setting an intention for yoga practice and taking it off the mat to live a life with mindfulness. You cultivate the seed of your intention by bringing your attention and focus back to it repeatedly. The next step is to be open and aware so that you notice the intention is coming to fruition. Perhaps your intention to keep your inner cool shows it is manifesting when you realize that you patiently waited in the slowest line at the grocery store despite being late for an appointment. Noticing it is an opportunity to be grateful and proud of the work you have done! Like a plant seed needs water, sunlight, nutrients, and time, your intention grows with your loving energy, positivity, attention, and the most challenging ingredient: trusting the process as it unfolds.
