Intention is the creative power by which your dreams flow from thought to existence. In embracing your role as the creator of your own reality, you open to a field of all possibilities, infinite energy, and the wisdom that flows from unbounded awareness.

  If you don’t like the way your story is playing out, you can learn to exercise the power of intention to re-write a more meaningful one.

Answering some simple questions by going within can assist you in getting focused on what your true intentions are: 

  • What matters most to you?
  • What are you passionate about?
  • What would you like to create or nurture in your life?
  • Is there anything you would like to let go of that has been holding you back?

When you seek stillness and allow your desires to rise from the silence of the gap between thoughts, the answers that are revealed to you are for the highest purpose of your being. Your deepest desires are messages from your true self encouraging harmony, expansion, and connectedness.

When you manifest from your true self, you are deeply connected to what your soul came here to do.  As you allow these seeds to flow out into the world and take shape through purposeful action, you will be guided by the wisdom of the Universe and attract all the nourishment needed to turn your intentions into reality.

From within your being, you awaken the energy of attraction and harness it’s power of creation to fulfill your greatest desires. What an extraordinary gift you give to yourself and to the world when you allow your deepest, truest, most cherished desires to come alive.

When you direct your awareness toward soul-affirming desires that fill you up, ignite your passion, and connect you with your purpose, a sense of joy and of harmony abides in everything you do. Doors will open as you advance toward them. That is how powerful a being you are!

With true appreciation of the power of intention, you can dive deeply into a sea of transformation and emerge ready to transcend any obstacle that comes between you and your destiny. Every time you choose love over fear, you open to infinite possibility and step into the powerful role of divine creatrix in your life.

Though, most often we set intentions to manifest for the future, our attention must remain thoroughly in the now.  The present moment is where our power abides and the only place where we can wield the magic to which we were born.

When you lead with conscious presence, from the stillness of your being –you access the power of the Universe and your connection to all that is.

While intentions set the direction for your thoughts,   it is your actions that guide you toward their fulfillment. The choices you make will either move you a step closer to your dreams or whisk you further away.

As powerful energetic being s, we all have the ability to shift the world around us by choosing what energy we bring.

When you’re coming from a place of love, compassion, gratitude, peace, creativity, and clarity, everyone around you can feel your energy, and doors open in welcome. Likewise, when you feel irritable, anxious, or emotional, you communicate that too, and doors close because you are closed.  As your energy ripples outward, you must pay close attention to how you show up, at least until your response, through practice, flows naturally from the core of your being.

On this journey of self-discovery, there will be times when the challenge of obstacles will distract you from your intention, and you may find yourself faltering, and falling out of balance. When ego slips in, its enervating whispers can be debilitating and it can be hard to pick yourself up. Thankfully, your body speaks to you and signals you of its presence. In silent awareness, you can witness without judgment and rest in the stillness as the silent watcher of your thoughts. Each pause you take allows you to step back from emotion, assess what’s going on within you, and to gently reframe and shift your thoughts to choose love.

In mastering the art of intention, you open and allow the abundance of the Universe to flow to and through you. Before you know it, you have crossed the chasm and moved from intention to fulfillment. Deep within your soul, you know that the Universe is always there, always guiding and supporting you.

Here are some of the heart-centered intentions I use for creating a peaceful, harmonious life of joy and abundance.  

Remember, all your hopes and dreams already exist as a wave in the quantum field – and are just waiting for you to wield your magic and make them real.

    Hi, Shirley

    Dreams are the divine indications for our future. We can have that as our intention if we can go into our heart where our intentions lie.

    Thanks for this nice post
