Welcome to my seasonal blog post where I create a simple intention inspired by a card reading for the changing of the season! Feel free to embrace this intention as your guiding light for the upcoming season (or for as long as it speaks to you)!
It's now officially autumn and this season's intention is all about confidently taking action towards achieving your dreams!
In this reading, you're provided with guidance and encouragement. You're being invited to take bold action and pursue your dreams, while remaining rational and focused. You're also being encouraged to release worries and shift your perspective towards what you truly desire. Finally, it's time to embrace self-care, compassion, and nurturing moments. Together, these cards guide you towards living a life filled with purpose, joy, and fulfillment.
Explore the detailed card reading below and embrace whatever resonates with you, while letting go of anything that doesn't. Remember, powerful messages have a way of finding you when you open your heart and pay attention ;)
Some things to keep in mind when using an intention:
- Write it down and put it where you can see it regularly (bathroom mirror, desk, beside table, wallet, etc).
- Say it several times a day clearly affirming it - you can stand in a power pose (like running across the finish line), hands on hips (like Wonder Woman), placing your hands on your heart, or even doing a little dance. Whatever makes you feel like this intention is possible when you say it, then do that!
- Visualize for just a few minutes each day your intention as if it has already come true.
- Practice your favourite Yoga Nidra meditation that allows you to state your intention during the practice. When the mind and body are relaxed, your mind is much more susceptible to suggestions, so this can help make this intention become true for you even quicker than by doing it on a conscious level alone.

Intention Setting Reading
1st Card - KNIGHT OF SWORDS
Ah, the daring and spirited Knight of Swords! This card bursts with an exhilarating energy, nudging you to dive into action. Sometimes, all you need is that extra push to pursue your deepest desires, and this knight is here to cheer you on. Picture her galloping toward her dreams, unwavering in her determination. Allow her story to invite you to make that first step towards what you've been contemplating. Make sure your path is rational and refuse to waste your precious energy on trivial matters.
So, take a moment to reflect: Is there a situation in your life that's calling you to take action? If the answer is yes, ponder upon the honest and harmonious steps you can take to address it. Remember, there's no need to create an uproar in your wake. Embrace the focused spirit of the Knight of Swords as you navigate your journey ahead. Let her inspire you to manifest your desires and cut through any obstacles with grace.
2nd Card - NINE OF SWORDS
Are those pesky thoughts keeping you up at night? You know, the ones that seem to replay like a broken record in your mind? It's like a marathon of worrying and conjuring up worst-case scenarios! But here's the thing, dear friend: fear is all about focusing on what hasn't happened yet, instead of what we truly desire to manifest. Trust me, you've got this! The Nine of Swords is beckoning you to take a fresh look at things and shift your perspective.
How can you flip the script and channel your energy into your dreams instead of your fears? Let's banish those worries together! Whether it's through calming meditations, uplifting affirmations, heartfelt journaling, a stroll in nature, or indulging in a soothing bath, find what brings you pure joy and ease those thoughts. It's time to step into a new mindset, chuck those worries out the door, and embrace a world brimming with possibilities. You deserve nothing less, my friend!
3rd Card - queen of CUPS
The Queen of Cups, oh, she's the most loving and caring Queen in this magical deck of cards! Her intuition is on point, and she's here to show you the beauty of nourishing yourself with love and compassion. So let's dive into the cup of self-care! Allow yourself to be vulnerable, and know that she's right there beside you, ready to hold your hand and hold space for you to just be your beautiful self.
Now, let's talk about self-care. How can you sprinkle more nurturing moments into your day? And hey, it's time to do a little spring cleaning of your activities, thoughts, and relationships that aren't feeding your soul. You know exactly which ones I'm talking about, don't you? Trust your inner voice, the one who loves you no matter what, and let it guide you towards love, compassion, and the fulfillment of your desires. If you're craving some extra compassion, dive into water-related activities. Take a warm, relaxing bath, treat yourself to a spa day, take a stroll by the water's edge, or even visualize yourself surrounded by healing waters. Let the love and compassion wash over you, my dear. You deserve it!
questions you can contemplate: 🤔
- What specific situation in my life is calling me to take action? How can I make the first step towards addressing it?
- How are worries and negative thoughts affecting my overall well-being? What strategies can I implement to shift my perspective towards a positive mindset?
- Reflecting on the concept of self-care, what activities, thoughts, or relationships do I need to let go of that aren't serving my highest good?
- How can I incorporate more nurturing moments into my daily routine? What self-care practices resonate with me the most?
