The Power of Intention  

Hope your new year is off to a great start! 


Each new year fills me with gratitude for the year past and excitement for the year ahead. And, it offers me the opportunity to reflect on past accomplishments and set new goals.Years ago, I discovered a beautiful quote about the Power of Intention which has empowered me to realize many a goal whether it be to enhance my well-being, bring hope and healing to people, or cherish the relationships in my life. Hope it inspires you as well!


"You are what your deepest desire is.

As you desire, so is your intention.

As your intention is, so is your will.

As your will is, so is your deed.

As your deed is, so is your destiny."


- Upanishads


Wishing you wellness,

The Healing Power of Intention


Intention is the starting point of every spiritual path. It is the force that fulfills all of our needs, whether for money, relationships, spiritual awakening, or love. Intention generates all the activities in the universe. Everything that we can see - and even the things we cannot - are an expression of intention's infinite organizing power.  Read more...

Kiera's Story
Kiera Van Gelder's first suicide attempt at the age of twelve marked the onset of her struggles with drug addiction, depression, post-traumatic stress, self-harm, and chaotic romantic relationships-all of which eventually led to doctors' belated diagnosis of borderline personality disorder twenty years later- a diagnosis so stigmatized it's been called "the leprosy of psychiatric disorders."
