Jennifer Gunson 0:03
What is your daily intention? We’ll find out and dig deeper with Sharyn as she discusses the power of choices and how to make them work for you. So you have a more positive, abundant life. This is all coming up in another episode of Medium Well with Psychic Sharyn Rose. She will share with you ten powerful tools you can easily use to improve everything! So let’s get started.

What are examples of daily intentions?

Sharyn 0:32
Hi, everybody, and welcome back to Medium Well with Psychic Sharyn Rose for another episode! This week, I want to talk to you about my intentions. I’ve been running smack up against preferences for the last 3 or 4 months; when I get up in the morning, what is my choice for the day? And when you’ve got a lot of tasks, you’re taking on a lot of functions, or you got a lot of things to do. You can get nothing done if you don’t have your intention clear. So let’s talk about choices today. So welcome back! And don’t forget; I’m going to pull a card when at the end of this episode, so stick around. You also might want to have a pen and paper handy. So pause this if you haven’t got pen and paper because you’ll want to maybe write some of this stuff down.

How do I choose an intention for the day?

So intentions – what is a choice for? What’s the point of a will? What’s the purpose? It gives you a bit of a guiding track of how you want your day to proceed. How do you want your day to continue with the intention being clear in your mind? Because you made an intention, formed a sense, on purpose, you intended to take. I’ll give you some examples. So so you’ll know what I’m talking about. But it’s taking action; its intentions come before action. So what is my intention before I speak? What is my choice before I act? What is my favourite before I even think about a particular topic? Let me give you some examples because it could be physical, mental, or emotional, and where your intention is placed. So let’s give you some examples. I’ll give you some samples right now. So one would be speaking kindly to yourself. You can set the intention to say kindly to yourself during the day instead of when you do something that doesn’t seem to be feeling good or working out well for you. Instead of saying, Oh man, I’m always doing this wrong. Ah, I always screw up. Say things like, what a good doing and yeah, this is a mistake. You know what? You’re better at it now than you were before you tried it. So practice giving yourself kudos when you cannot accomplish everything on your to-do list. So, for example, maybe you’ve got a list, and you’ve only got three things down, and you’ve got ten things on there, and you’re like, oh my god, I didn’t accomplish anything today. Yeah, you did. You got three things done. So really be kind to yourself, forgive yourself, be nice to yourself and when things go well, or you make a mistake the way you would a dear friend. Hmm, how does that sound? Be your own best friend. What fun that sounds like. Hey, here’s a second one take the opportunity to embrace pleasure. So, for example, when you get up in the morning and you have a shower, well, I give you an example. When I had my shower this morning, and I forget every time I go into my shower, you know, I’m kind of like fuzzy-headed, not awake, use the shower to wake me up. And I have bought a new body scrub. And it smells divine. I love it. And every time I get in the shower and doodle, I wash my hair, and then I open this container with my body soap, and I love it! It perks me right up! It makes me happy! And I embrace the pleasure of having my showers. And by the time I get out of my shower, I feel thrilled! I think ideally about myself. But you can do it in a lot of different ways. You can take a walk in the morning or watch the sunrise. In my case, it’s my shower with my new lotion that I keep forgetting that I still have that I have. You can do that after a workout too. Taking a nice shower and really appreciating, just embracing the simple pleasures of the day, of the simple little things – even, like I said, after a workout.

Why is it important to be kind to strangers?

A photo of sticky notes with the words Practice Gratitude Daily written on them.

Another thing you can do is be kind to a stranger. A smile! It’s incredible how much a smile can make a difference in someone else’s day. And we’re so focused on ourselves, especially in our world. Now we forget that we’re connecting with many other people we share the planet with and share a smile. That’s a simple, straightforward way. So there are three ideas. Here’s another one. I spent quality time with a loved one or a pet, and I’ve got a cat. I’m a cat girl. I know there are dog people. I love my cat, and she is my buddy. She follows me because I work at home and she lives there. And so we are workmates all day long, and she’ll come, sit on my lap while I’m working on a writing project, or if I’ve got clients and she just sleeps on the bed. If you’ve got children at home with your child, those closest to you help you feel loved, connected and fulfilled. Good, eh? Those are four different ideas. Five, take time for self-care. Give yourself a facial or go for a run, or go for a walk in the sun. We’re in October, and we’ve gotten late autumn going. Even though the leaves are not all off the trees yet, the colours are stunning. They’re just amazing. And I am going for a walk in this lovely, crisp air, throwing on a light jacket, looking at the colours, and just enjoying and appreciating it. That’s self-care right there because you feel good, and it is suitable for your heart. And self-care should be a priority in everyone’s life. And ladies, listen up; we are the worst. Those of us who have come through parenting or our continuing parenting is involved in parenting right now are the worst. We don’t take excellent care of ourselves.

What yoga is best for stress?

So have the intention, hold the purpose, to take good care of yourself. Mindful activity. Be cautious with this stuff that you’re doing. This is another opportunity to set an intention or a place you can put a sense; this one would be for inner peace. If you’ve got stress going on in your life and you’re looking for some way of calming yourself, try some yoga. And there are lots of courses online if you have a yoga class close to you that you can go into. If you’re economical, funds are limited; many free resources are online. And meditation too! There are a lot of free resources online. And Rodney Yee is excellent. I love Rodney Yee! Online, if you can find anything from him. There are lots there.

What does it mean to do journaling?

Another thing that I know that a lot of people like to do but are sporadic at is journaling. Journaling can help you feel in tune; it can help you tap in and connect with what’s going on around you. So really, you’re aligning yourself with mindful activity aligns you for inner peace, be creative, do something creative. Maybe craft something with your hands. As for me, I go and bake; I love to bake and cook—more baking than cooking. But do something with your hands; maybe write a poem and come up with a new recipe. And I’m doing that all the time. Use the creative side of your brain regularly. It helps broaden your mind and your way of thinking.

What does it mean when a person writes with their left hand?

Now I’m a left-hander. I always say this for you lefties out there; we’re in our right minds! Ah, I can’t help it! When you’re born in the 50s, you don’t have a lot of left-handedness, and we said a left-handed person needs to be corrected or fixed. We were broken. And my father was left-handed and said, ” No, don’t touch my daughter’s letter. Right. Don’t touch her hands! Don’t stop her from writing with her left hand! She’s left-handed because he was made to change creativity. Creativity comes easy to you if you’re left-handed because you’re already using that side of your brain, the right side. But if you’re not being creative, you know, I have a lot of clients that will come in here. And I’ll ask them what they love to do creatively, and they’ll say, Oh, I’m not very good at that. I’m not very good at writing. And I don’t say, and I’m not a good artist, and I know blah, blah, blah. And I’m thinking we when we were kids; we didn’t care if somebody handed us a crayon. What do we do? We coloured somebody and handed his microphone, talked, or sang into it. If somebody put music on or we liked the beat, we danced. We didn’t care what anybody thought about that. Again, dancing is one of my favourite things to do. So it gives you some suitable physical and an excellent physical workout. If you dance, you know, vigorously for 15 minutes, you can have it, and it’s fun; it lifts your spirit and makes you feel perfect. Another thing that I do, and I do all the time, is appreciation, appreciation, appreciation! And my clients will hear me say that, and they’ll be laughing. For those of you that have been to see me, you already know that. That’s what I do. I’m always practicing appreciation. And I’m always preaching it to what I suggest in the morning, when you wake up, offer an appreciation for your fantastic sleep. And for your ability to be safe and warm in your home. It doesn’t matter what your home looks like or where it is. Just be appreciative that you’re waking up and have blankets on you to keep you warm, a pillow that snuggles with your head, and the heat around you. So you don’t have to be exposed to the elements and offer appreciation for the day that’s coming and your first cup of coffee that you’re going to have in the morning. And when you’re done, get out of bed and then when you go to bed at night, offer up an appreciation for the day you just had. And when you do that, you go to that appreciative mode, and you wake up in the same place, which means you sleep better. So practice appreciation and recognize all the good and the beautiful things in your life are appreciated. You know, as you think, so you are, so when you understand things in your life, you’re bringing more things to enjoy, okay? What goes around comes around. That’s true there. Trust your intuition. That’s the ninth thing I’m giving you here. Trust your intuition. We overthink everything in our culture – even me, and I’m a psychic! I use my intuition daily, but I sometimes overthink because I’m a claircog. I’m a logical, practical person in this human journey. And we’re always looking at all the pros and cons, and sometimes we can’t decide by reasoning or thinking it out. Use your intuition. Allow your gut instinct to take over, and here’s a 10th one, process your emotions before reacting to something.

What happens when you avoid difficult conversations?

So, for example, I mean Thanksgiving just passed – Canadian Thanksgiving just passed. I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. By the way, one of my relatives, because we got together our family, one of my young relatives came to me and complained about one of my other relatives. I had an opportunity to engage. It was an unnecessary complaint. It wasn’t relevant to anything. But it was just kind of a; it was kind of a bitchiness coming out. And I had a choice, I could engage in that conversation and make it an exchange, or I could walk away. And I did that – I walked away, I just walked away and went and sat and visited. And the next time I bumped into her, which was in another part of the house, I just put my arm around her, stood with her, and talked with others. And she just reacted the same way. But it was an opportunity for her. Because she realized what I had done, she knew what I had done. And God gave her a chance to learn; oh, I’m being a little bit cheeky. And I don’t need to be because it was unnecessary. The whole thing, the entire conversation that we would have had or could have had. But I just decided to process my emotions before reacting. So because you can regret saying things you know, you can regret when you say something out of anger or frustration. Sometimes it’s just time to take a step back and say, oops! Maybe I need to zip the lip every once in a while. To process your emotions before reacting to them. You’re not always going to be happy. And you always react differently to everybody. So learn to process them and your thoughts as well before responding immediately.

How do you talk nice to yourself?

So let’s go over these ten things. The first one is being kind to yourself saying kind words to yourself, and speaking kindly. The second is to do something you love – just a simple pleasure like an early morning walk. Or, in my case, using my beautiful bath gel that I love the smell of it in my shower. Show kindness to someone speaking to a stranger or smiling at the grocery store. Number four, quality time with a loved one or a pet, spend some quality time with someone. Number five, indulge in taking care of yourself, take some time to do some good self-care, or facial, go for a run, walk in the beautiful weather and the beautiful, and walk in the beautiful fall colours. Be mindful, maybe take on something like yoga, a light meditation or start journaling. And this is going to align you for your inner peace. Number seven, engage in a creative activity, and start becoming creative again as you used to when you were a kid; I don’t know what that is. And if it means putting on music and tapping your toes start doing that. Something engages the creative side of your brain; it helps broaden your way of thinking and broaden your mind. So you’re not so stuck. Practice appreciation that summer aid, recognize the good things in your life, be thankful and trust your intuition. Don’t overthink. Allow yourself to trust what comes to you and through you, and then process your emotions before you react to them so that you can be positive and not start getting involved in toxic conversations or negative behaviour patterns. So what I’m going to do is I’m going to pick a card for you from the Daily Affirmations list. I might like a couple of cards; how would that be?

What makes a person coachable?

Let’s do that. I’ll pick a couple of cards to remind you that the office is open throughout the winter. December, I limit my appointments. But my coaching doors are wide open. Wintertime is when I get a lot of coaching clients, and I have been swamped. So if you’re interested in doing the coaching, we can do it online, we can do it like on Zoom, or we can do it on my phone, or you can come into the studio, and we can do it. So there are lots of different ways the coaching; it requires you to have a one-hour appointment before we do take on coaching. I take on a coaching client because, I’ll be frankly honest with you, a lot of people aren’t coachable. And I don’t know if that’s you or not; I don’t know. But if we and not only that, but maybe you don’t want to take on coaching, you know, 10 hours to 10-hour coaching program with me initially the boot camp, and you don’t want to take that on if you don’t think you’re going to like me. That wouldn’t be good, either. So we have to be compatible. Okay? So I invite you to go to Sharyn with a “Y.” Check out my services and everything you can get into, and maybe I’ll see you in a one-hour appointment. So here is this one spiritual health. This card that I’ve just picked, oh, and this fits right into what we were talking about too! If you want to write this down, maybe grab your pads, guys. “I step into my day with the quiet expectation that something wonderful will occur.” Oh, I like that. And you know, the picture on this card is the Fall scene. Isn’t that interesting? I step into my day with a quiet expectation that something extraordinary will occur. Let’s pick another card. Let’s pick another card. This one’s on physical health. Okay, this is a little bit longer. It’s got a picture of a chipmunk sitting on it. It’s adorable. So here’s the affirmation if you like this one better, “I honour my sensuality by exploring sights, sounds, scents and textures that make me Feel Alive and connected to my body.” I love this one; you know why this fits in perfectly with the fragrance that I use in the shower and the like? Being able to engage with that scent makes me happy. So I honour my sensuality by exploring the sights, the sounds, the sense and the textures that make me feel alive and connected to my body. There you go. So there are some affirmations and excellent tips on your intention. And I’ll tell you what, when you become aware that setting an intention with purpose in intentionally setting a sense when you become aware that that will alter your day, you can feel your day shifting because you set a choice. It’s dynamic and makes a difference. You’re going to find your days will be better and better and better. Thanks, everybody, for popping in. Thank you, and I will see you next time. Bye-bye for now.
