Setting intentions is the cornerstone of all creation – a subtle impulse that enters your mind before you take any action. And with each thought and intention you set in motion, you unleash the limitless energies of the universe.


But how do you set powerful intentions? It starts with becoming clear on who you truly are and what matters most to you. Intentions come from a deeper place than goals – they force you to unravel your true desires and motives.
