The Power Of Your Intentions
“Choose your intention carefully and then practice holding your consciousness to it, so it becomes the guiding light in your life.” — John Roger
An intention is a powerful thought united with determination to attain your desires. Many people have intentions, but not everyone follows through with them because they believe they are out of reach. Some believe they are not worthy of achieving their desires or hold limiting beliefs to turn them into reality. Intention is a powerful force to create the life you want. If you want to live your life on purpose, it pays to learn how to make your intentions your reality. Here are five steps to harness the power of your intentions to manifest your desired reality.
1. Affirm You Are Here on Purpose
You exist on purpose. A greater intelligence created you and your purpose is not necessarily to do something, but to be who you are. To be love, light, peace and joy to those around you. By being aware that you are more than just cells, organs and skin is important to make your intentions your reality. You are a spiritual being having an earthly experience. Therefore, the power to create your reality as you choose lies within your reach. It is a matter of connecting with your heart’s deepest intention and co-creating your life with this greater intelligence.
2. Add Value to Others
I’m certain if you have intentions they are based on something you love doing and benefits you. However, your purpose is also to create a life you love; to add value to humanity as well. By loving and serving others graciously, you are setting forth powerful universal and spiritual laws into action that act as a boomerang and bring back to you joy and fulfilment. Therefore, what you give out most as thoughts and actions is returned to you tenfold.
If you love poetry, allow your passion to be wide open and write or perform poetry to affect others. The universe will be sure your personal rewards will be more than you can fathom. Do what you love and keep an eye out for those who need a helping hand. You really will reap what you sow, so be sure to sow love and light. I realise it is not always easy to do, but as long as you hold good intentions in your heart, good things will multiply in your life.
3. Align With the Universal Energy
As you align with a creative and powerful universal force, the things you need most will line up for your success. You don’t have to wonder and worry about how things will work out; trust in a powerful force will become a reality one way or another. You see, your desires are born out of the same intelligence that created the universe. Not that all your desires will materialize, but if they are aligned with good intentions, they will come into your reality when you least expect it. The key is not to be attached to them, but turn them over to this creative force and be comfortable whether or not they materialise.
4. The Power Of Affirmations
What you think and speak is important in terms of what you receive. Your existing reality results from your thoughts from the past. That may make you smile or frown depending on what situation you are in. I’ve heard some parents tell their children: “Think positive and you can do anything you want in life.” However, they tell their friends how awful their lives are and how hard life is. It is NEVER too late to improve the circumstances of your life. Change requires a firm decision to do things differently and persevere through doubts and setbacks.
So, write your intentions and post them somewhere you will see daily. Recite them out loud as often as you can. For example you might sau: “I intend to meditate 30 minutes a day to find more peace and joy,” or “I intend to become department manager within one year.” As you do this, you are creating momentum toward the achievement of your goals. Know that your thoughts and words are creative and powerful, so be on top and guard against anything negative. If you catch yourself thinking or speaking negatively, thank your thoughts and replace them with positive statements concerning your progress toward your goals.
5. Be Grateful
Gratitude is a powerful force in the universe and brings more of your desires into reality. Even if you are not happy with certain aspects of your life, try noticing the obvious things you are grateful for. Be thankful for your home, car, good health, loving partner, children, and heat on cold days, food to eat, etc. As you offer gratitude for the things you have, more good things will come your way. This is because gratitude is vested in love, which is the language of the universe. Gratitude opens the doorway to higher emotional frequencies that bring you more of what you desire.
When you have an intention, powerful forces are set into motion in the universe. Whatever you have in mind is released into the universe and the laws of the universe work for you, so your intention will be delivered to you at the right time; making your intention a reality. Go for it. Make it your purpose to be a person full of intent and create a life that you love.
