The importance of Intentional Meditation

Intentional meditation is a form of mindfulness that involves focus and purpose. It involves setting an intention before beginning to meditate, and then focusing on that intention throughout the meditation session. This type of meditation can be helpful in achieving specific goals or outcomes, such as reducing stress or improving productivity. In this blog post, we will discuss the benefits of intentional meditation and provide tips for getting started!

Setting your intention:

When you set an intention before beginning to meditate, you are setting the stage for a focused and purposeful practice. This means that your attention will be more likely to remain on the object or goal of your meditation. Intentional meditation can help you to achieve specific outcomes that you may be hoping for, such as connecting more deeply with yourself or with something outside of yourself. Seeing results come out of an intentional meditation helps to keep you motivated to stick with your meditation practice.

Before starting your meditation spend a quiet moment to find your intention. If you're working with one of our meditation supplements we recommend setting an intention based on the supplement being used.

How to practice intentional meditation with Urban Dieta Meditation Supplements: 

1. Find a comfortable place to sit or lie down. You may want to use a meditation cushion or blanket to support your body.

When your intention is set sit and focus on it for a moment then spray 1-3 pumps of your chosen supplement in pooled saliva under your tongue. Wait for the stinging sensation to build, take the energy created by that sensation and move it from your mouth to the energy center that the supplement focuses on.

  • For HEAR - Crown chakra intentional meditations. Higher Self, Wisdom, higher purpose, etc.
  • For SEE - Third Eye chakra intentional meditations. creativity, imagination, clarity, etc. 

2. Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths.

3. Focus your attention on your breath. Notice the sensations of your breath as you inhale and exhale.

4. When your mind wanders, simply return your focus to your breath and intention. 

5. Continue meditating for 5-10 minutes, or longer if you like.
