Every morning when I get up I feel like I have a second chance at life again. I need to have that chance because I tend to forget all my intentions, promises and commitments and even my own wishes; my heart’s desires. Perhaps it is my age. My doctor once said, everybody over 50 needs a notebook in his pocket.J
But it could be something entirely else. Intentions and so forth all have to do with change. And what can be more fearful than change. To leave a familiar status quo, even when it’s not working or is unhealthy, can cause a lot of anxiety and insecurity. We want to change our ways for the better, but even though we aspire a healthy and spiritual life we keep falling back to our old habits and behavior patterns. Reading other peoples blogs and watching their Youtube video has made me aware of the fact that I ‘m not alone in this. But I think I've found a creative solution for my (our) problem….
Yesterday evening I've watched a video from MonsoonMagick about a blessing box on her altar. She puts little pieces of paper in there with blessings she wants to invite in to her life and intentions she want to manifest. I have transformed this idea (combined it with my doctors advice) to an intention journal/notebook, not only for on my altar but to carry it with me where ever I go and to read it whenever I want to.

This idea is right in time for my Samhain resolutions/wishes etc. I am planning to write in this little book every holiday and new moon. Here I will list my intentions, my wishes ,my practices and everything I want to commit to. It is also great to revisit en evaluate previous entries from past holidays and new moons. Keep in mind that it’s not a journal but rather a little book with lists and keywords. Like a cheatsheet for life J
Just before I've posted this I've pulled a card from The Enchanted Map Oracle Cards and what do you know; it was “Commitment”: “A true commitment is a responsibility of the heart mind body and soul. This is a good time to make one.”
