Everything that happens to you happens because of intentions that you’ve put forward to the universe. Whether you’ve put those intentions out consciously or whether you’ve put them out subconsciously it does NOT matter. The thoughts and ideas that your mind put out will eventually become your reality. That’s why it’s very important to always think positive thoughts and keep you mind clear and free of noise.
Destiny is ultimately shaped by our deepest intentions and desires.
“You are what your deepest desire is. As your desire is, 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.”
“An intention is a directed impulse of consciousness that contains the seed form of that which you aim to create. Like real seeds, intentions can’t grow if you hold on to them. Only when you release your intentions into the fertile depths of your consciousness can they grow and flourish.”
1. Get your mind into that quiet place where creativity flows without effort.
Most of the time our mind is full of noise. Thoughts are being bombarded at us from all directions. The media, people you listen to and other sources. And those thoughts can take up residence in our minds and influence us. These thoughts can roll around in our minds causing complete chaos and a state of mind that is not only unhealthy but not conducive to a state where a positive intention can be planted.
Meditation and even intense activity can take you to a place in your mind where you can achieve silence and stillness of pure consciousness.
In this state you can plant your seeds of intention.
2. Release your intentions and desires
Once you get yourself into that state of mental calmness and quietness, release your intentions and desires. The best time to plant your intentions is during the period just after you reach this spot, while your awareness remains centered in the quiet ether of possibilities. Then, after you set an intention just let it go. Just let it go.
3. Remain centered in a state of restful awareness
Now this may be the hardest part of all. Remaining in a quiet space in your mind. Intention is much more powerful when it comes from a place of contentment than if it arises from a sense of lack or need. Stay centered and refuse to be influenced by other people’s doubts or criticisms. And for whatever reason their will be people who will try to zap your energy down. They themselves are like energy Vampires. Looking for people who are more positive then themselves. But don’t worry about them. Just remember that this is part of the process of being positive. Just keep that in mind. Those energy Vampires are out there and they are looking for you. They need to put people down in order for them to justify their own meager unhappy existence. Don’t give them your power. Simply ignore them and walk away. Run away would be even better. Oh and don’t try to “fix” them. They thrive on argument and negative energy. Their only goal is to bring you down. Don’t waist your energy on them. Save your energy to use to plant your positive intentions! Your higher self knows that everything is all right and will be all right, even without knowing the timing or the details of what will happen.
4. Detach from the outcome
Relinquish your rigid attachment to a specific result and live in the wisdom of uncertainty. Attachment is based on fear and insecurity, while detachment is based on the unquestioning belief in the power of your true Self. Intend for everything to work out as it should, then let go and allow opportunities and openings to come your way.
5. Let the universe handle the details
Your focused intentions set the infinite organizing power of the universe in motion. Trust that infinite organizing power to orchestrate the complete fulfillment of your desires. Don’t listen to the voice that says that you have to be in charge, that obsessive vigilance is the only way to get anything done. The outcome that you try so hard to force may not be as good for you as the one that comes naturally. You have released your intentions into the fertile ground of pure potentiality, and they will bloom when the season is right.
