Intention setting for ketamine treatment

It is important to take time and space to carefully consider your intention for your dosing experiences. What are the right intentions? There is no right or wrong here. An intention can be something serious, such as understanding the root of your depression or anxiety or learning how to deal with a loss. But it can also be something lighter, such as how to find more joy in your daily routine.

A great first step for setting your intentions is to think about what brought you to Isha Health and what you’re hoping to change in your life. Your intentions work best when they are personal, specific, and focused.

Here are some questions you might ask yourself as you get started:

  • What area of life is feeling the most “stuck”?
  • Do I have any limiting beliefs? If so, what are they?
  • How does my behavior compare to my goals, values, and self-beliefs? 
  • What does my ideal life look like?

Next, write down your intentions. Writing them down is crucial for solidifying these goals in your mind. Prepare 1-2 intentions per session.

Common themes include:

  • Improving awareness of strengths, weaknesses, blindspots, or roadblocks.
  • Exploring creative problems and inspirations
  • Healing from past traumas
  • Improving relationships
  • Overcoming bad habits
  • Cultivating gratitude

Once you have a grasp of your intentions, phrase them into statements, requests, or questions. Some examples are:

  • What is the cause of my depression or anxiety?
  • Help me understand how I can be a better partner to my significant other.
  • How can I overcome my bad habit?
  • I will be more connected with myself and others

Need some expert guidance? You can book a quick check-in to discuss and reinforce your intentions with your Isha Health clinician.

Remember, you want to start each session with thoughtful objectives, not an agenda. It is important to hold your intentions loosely so that you strike a balance between having purpose to the session as well as openness to the course your growth takes.
