You can make to-do lists and stack up your schedule, but if you really want to make a change in your life the power of intention plays a critical role. Setting an intention can be as simple as keeping a journal or surrounding yourself with elements that will subtly and beautifully remind you to focus throughout the year.

If you need to develop better personal boundaries in your relationships, make protection your intention and remind yourself to aim for that as a goal. If you fixate on or are fearful about money, make abundance your intention. After that, it’s about letting your choices and actions reflect your intention. Here are a few ways to make it happen:

How To Bring Your Intentions To Life

design It | Create a wall-hanging, inspiration board or abstract art for your blank hallway — whatever creative endeavor it is, pull from your passions and enjoy the process. Use the visual you make to remind yourself of your set intentions. And to up the fun factor, grab a girlfriend and create something beautiful together!

Tell A Confidant | Tell a close friend, work buddy or business mentor about your focus for the year. Accountability can make all the difference between setting an intention and actually bringing it to life. Give her permission to keep you accountable for your behavior. Make a coffee date, explain your goals and big picture ideas about your intentions. Then share actionable ideas that will get you there — and what may stand in your way. Also, ask for advice and listen well.

Wear It | Gift yourself a wearable reminder you’ll see every day to focus yourself on your intention. As you glance down at your wrist or see the reflection in the mirror of the piece on your neck, you’ll have an undeniable reminder of what you’ve promised to yourself — and only you will know about it.

Gorjana’s new Power Gemstone collection is the ideal way to wear your intentions on your sleeve, so to speak. It’s the delicate look of the jewelry and powerful meaning behind each piece that makes us want to stack them up. The line is inspired by the founder’s crystal obsession, which we learned all about when we interviewed her a few months back!
