As we step into the new year, it's a great time to think about what we want to achieve. But instead of just making a list, I've got a different approach that might resonate with you – drumming. It's a powerful way to set our intentions for what's ahead.
Drumming is straightforward, but it's deep. When we drum, it's like we're talking directly to our inner selves and the world around us. Each beat can carry our hopes and plans right into the heart of the universe.
Here’s how you can use drumming to set your intentions:
Find a Quiet Place: Choose somewhere peaceful, where you feel relaxed. Being outside where you can see the sky or surrounded by nature works best.
Hold Your Drum: Get to know your drum. Feel its surface, its weight. This is your tool for connection.
Set Your Intentions: Think clearly about what you want this year. Hold those thoughts in your mind.
Start Drumming: Begin with slow beats. Imagine each beat sending your intentions out there.
Build the Rhythm: Let your drumming pick up as you get into it. This is like giving energy to your plans.
End with Thanks: When you finish, just say thanks – to yourself, your drum, and the universe.
This drumming ritual is more than playing an instrument. It's a way to make your intentions strong and clear. Try it out and see how it feels to put your plans into every beat.
Have you tried something like this before? How do you set your intentions for the new year?
Let's use drumming to kick off our year right – strong, clear, and focused.
