The Power of Intention!
Victoria wants to loss weight and eat healthy. She’s lost weight before, only to regain it all back and more. This time, however, she just received news from her doctor that she is now diabetic. She has a family and knows she wants to be around for a long time to enjoy her life with them.
Travis wants a long-term relationship. Content for years to be a “lady’s man,” he recently recovered from a life-threatening illness and is now clear that he is ready for a lifelong partner.
Emily wants to feel happy again. Under the weight of a huge personal and marital crisis last summer, she wasn’t sure she even wanted to live. She’s not sure whether her marriage will make it, but she knows he wants to live and thrive.
The common but invisible thread that connects these three people is this: Each person has actually declared an intention, rather than wistfully wishing for things to be different.
“Conscious change is brought about by the two qualities inherent in consciousness: attention and intention,” writes Deepak Chopra in Seven Spiritual Laws of Success. “Attention energizes, and intention transforms. Whatever you put your attention on will grow stronger in your life…. Intention, on the other hand, triggers transformation of energy and information. Intention organizes its own fulfillment.”
When you declare an intention, you gain the support of your subconscious mind. Here are some suggestions for how to work with intentions in order to bring what you need into your life.
· Get clear on what you want and why.
It’s not enough to know what you don’t want. You can’t get what you want until you know what that is. Steven Covey in The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, writes that all things are created twice. “There’s a mental or first creation, and a physical or second creation to all things.”
· Imagine it. See it as happening.
“Your imagination creates the inner picture that allows you to participate in the act of creation,” writes Dr. Wayne Dyer in his best-selling book The Power of Intention. “Your willpower is much less effective than your imagination, which is your link to the power of intention.”
· Keep yourself receptive.
Exercise, eat healthily, play and relax. Stress, exhaustion, anxiety, etc., become “static” that interferes with the “frequencies” of what you’re wanting to bring into your life.
· Take action.
Intention isn’t about sitting back and waiting for it all to come to you.
For example, Victoria enrolled in a weight release program that addressed her health and emotional issues to break the negative patterns that led her to disregard her health and well being.
Travis became involved with a social organization and took relationship classes to overcome his fear of dating.
Emily began working with a therapist to examine the feelings of emptiness that led to her severe depression. When we commit to a thing by taking action, it’s often surprising how quickly our intentions are realized.
· Surrender control.
This means to let go and trust. Let go of the particular way in which things will happen. Let go of fear, doubt, worry and disappointment. Let go of the notion of struggle. Trust that the outcome will be just right.
Keep your attention on your intention.
Keep your mind focused on your success!
Let go and trust!
