How to Harness the Power of Intention

“Intentions compressed into words enfold magical power.” – Deepak Chopra

We each hold a power inside of us that is beyond measure. A power so great that if we understood and truly comprehended this magnificence, our lives would be different.

This power that we possess is this gift of intention. Because out of our thoughts, we create this image of ourselves, we create this reality that we live and breathe in.

How would you engage in and act differently if you knew 100%, without a shadow of a doubt, that whatever you set your intention on would come to fruition?

It truly is miraculous how the universe works in alignment with our intention, drawing into our lives the circumstances, people and situations that work to make us better, stronger, and wiser.

Recognizing this innate power is akin to realizing that the magic wand you have been dreaming of has been in your hand all along. Although you cannot see it, it is there.

Your ability to manifest what you want (create and to be who you want to be), is contingent upon your belief in this very power.

Choose your thoughts wisely and be discerning in which thoughts you allow yourself to believe. When you choose to accept fear-based thoughts, those related to scarcity, lack, hopelessness and negativity, the very vibration of those beliefs act as a repellant that deter abundance, health, and wealth. Fear-based thinking is the antithesis to this very power of attraction and abundance.

Your thoughts are like magnets and your intention will be reflected back to you 100% by the universe. It is important that we are clear on our intentions and that we ourselves mirror that which we seek.

If you long for a loving relationship with a partner, do you have a loving relationship with yourself?

If you desire financial abundance, do you believe that you deserve abundance? Do you give as easily as you receive?

If you crave more emotional intimacy/friends, are being the friend you would want to have?

If you want greater harmony in your relationships, have you cultivated this harmony within your own mind and body?

The precursor to harnessing the power of intention is a deeper and broader awareness of the power that we can tap into — this ability to have desire and follow through with it.

Utilizing this power comes with greater ease when we truly understand how the universe reflects that which we are. When we have a desire which we wholeheartedly follow through with, the universe works in equal measure to assist in the manifestation of that desire.

If there is a desire or longing that you have that has not yet manifested, have you considered the forces within yourself that could be compromising its manifestation?

It is not the manifestation of your desire that is of value and utmost importance, but your belief in the possibility and potential of that desire to come true. That is where the true power lies.

What doubts do you have about your worth, your ability to make this desire come true? What fears do you have about what others may think in relation to this desire?

When we hold onto these fears, even subconsciously, the universe picks up on these feelings. When we run fearlessly in the pursuit of our intentions, the universe honors that as well. The result is the manifestation of our dreams.

How Your Unconscious Beliefs Shape Your Reality

“Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will control your life and you will call it fate.” – Carl Jung

What stops you in your life?

What is it that holds you back from chasing your dream and doing what you have always wanted to do but haven’t?

As long as you hold onto the core belief of unworthiness, even subconsciously, your reality will be shaped by this belief.

Your actions, motivation, and ability to accomplish and fulfill your destiny [alignment with your true self] is jeopardized.

We are in alignment with who we really are, source, when we disidentify with our thoughts, with the thinking mind.

We gain ourselves when we lose ourselves.

How do we disidentify with our thoughts and this deep sense of unworthiness?

By acknowledging and recognizing how our adherence to the core belief of unworthiness influences our thoughts, beliefs, and actions.

It’s not wrong to hold onto this belief and there is no shame in doing so, because we all do it. However, as long as we live from an inner state of lack, deprivation, from this myopic
feeling that we do not deserve love and abundance, we shortchange ourselves.

How does the belief of unworthiness manifest in our lives?

When we settle because we do not believe we deserve and can have better.

When we look outwards for approval and validation.

When we stay safe and comfortable instead of challenging ourselves beyond our comfort zone. When feelings of hopelessness and despair creep into our hearts.

When we blame others instead of taking responsibility for our brokenness.

When we make excuses such as “I don’t know” because it’s always easier to make excuses than to risk losing.

As long as we hold onto the idea that we have time and that there is time to fulfill our creative passions and desires, we withhold ourselves from abundance because the only time we ever have is now.

It is a false illusion when we believe that we can find our security in some future time or place and through possessions.

In doing so we are merely seeking ourselves in a place where belonging and security cannot be found.

But our purpose can felt in our body in this moment, in the awakening of our own hearts to be fully present.

When we can unfold to this presence and stillness within ourselves, we tap into the universal source of love that drives us to dream, to do what we want– fearlessly.

Notice the voices and thoughts that arise from your conditioning, the voices that tell you that you can’t, that you don’t deserve, that you are not good enough.

For it is the continual belief in those thoughts that perpetuate a lack of fulfillment and gratification. That perpetuate a lack of motivation and direction.

When you step outside of the framework of your own thinking mind and see you for you, it is like taking the collar off and realizing that you never had to wear the collar.

It is like stepping outside of the prison cell and realizing that the door was never locked.

It is like winning the game and realizing that the only rules that existed were the ones that you created.

Stop defining yourself. Step outside of definition and into presence, being. Who you are cannot be defined. Nor can the limitless creative potential that is within you.

How to Manifest What You Want

“Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality.” – Albert Einstein

We each have dreams and visions inside of us. Dreams to create, to utilize our creativity, to be who we aspire to be.

You were meant to create and to be who you wanted to be. However, when we falter and withhold ourselves from chasing our dreams and desires, it is because we are holding onto a limiting belief, a fear.

To trust the universe is to trust ourselves. When we trust ourselves, our gift, our vision and dream, the universe trusts us.

The more we believe in ourselves and in our dreams, the more the universe conspires to manifest that dream into reality.

The law of attraction is simply the law of mirroring.

When you trust wholeheartedly in what you want and your ability to attain / achieve your goal, the universe cannot help but attract into your life people things and opportunities to match your vibration, your desire.

The secret is to believe, because when you believe, you put out a vibration and the universe absolutely with no doubt will mirror your belief as well.

When you doubt your dream the universe doubts your dream too.

When you have full faith in your vision and ability to fulfill it the universe does miraculous things to compensate and reflects your exact vibration. Emanate feelings of hope, love, joy, inspiration and have full faith in your vision and desire. The universe promises to fulfill it. The universe is magnetic and will mirror your same vibration of love and hope, drawing into your life everything that you dream. Have faith.

Your role is only to know what is that you want and to believe wholeheartedly in it. To believe, to hope, to desire, to trust.

Feeling lost is a result of doubting and fearing failure. It is not bad to feel lost, it is just a sign that you are holding onto the fear of failure or judgment.

Resolve to trust what it is that you want, to chase after this dream wholeheartedly, and to know that the manifestation of your desire is meant to be.

How to Love Others

“Wear love everywhere you go.” – Colossians 3:14

We spend much of our lives in our thoughts, however, how much do we spend outside of ourselves?

The repetitive patterns that make up our daily thoughts are mostly the same, and have to do with the story that we have about ourselves, the world and particularly the people in our lives.

What story do you have about people and how does gender, race and sexual orientation color your perception of others?

Any preconceived ideas that we hold about other people is a filter that can be a barrier to connecting with them.

Each time we choose to despise or resent another person, we are choosing to reject a part of ourselves. We cut ourselves off from compassion which has no conditions.

What does it mean to be outside of yourself? It means to step outside of of your thinking and into the awareness, the field of presence that surrounds you.

When we are truly present, we are able to see others for who they really are, without judgment.

To truly see other people for who they really are is to see others with compassion because every person has experiences that have made them unique.

Every encounter we have with every single person in this world is an opportunity to love, to connect and to relate in a new way.

Each time that we connect with someone, there is an expansion in our hearts, there is a vibrational energy that resonates and grows within us. This particular vibration is the same frequency that attracts more love, abundance and opportunity into our lives.

Each time we judge, denigrate or look down on others, we cut ourselves off from receiving more love and abundance in our own lives.

Each time that we choose to love and accept others regardless of who or what they are, particularly if they are difficult to get along with, we invite greater forgiveness, compassion and acceptance into our lives.

Every time we connect with other people in this way, the way of loving them unconditionally, we are in essence living in alignment with our true purpose, our true essence.

When we live in alignment with who we really are, we experience joy and we desire to share that joy with others.

It is easy to judge and to look down on other people, especially if they are different from us. However, every time we do, it is only because there is a part of ourselves that we cannot accept and are attempting to reject through this projection.

The more you practice love and are able to connect with others, to see yourself in them, the more you also attract others to love you in the same way.

What would happen to our lives if we focused less on accumulating, attaining and doing, and more on being present to others, listening and genuinely attentive to the world around us?

What would this world be like if everyone practiced this and focused more on being present to this moment and to having authentic connections with other people?

Sometimes all it takes is a smile, a compliment, or eye contact, but it means a world of difference.

Our presence has an impact on others and it is powerful to recognize our own ability to impact others in a positive way, to walk  with love wherever we go, no matter what.

How differently would you feel and act if you knew everyone around you accepted and loved you unconditionally?

Be that unconditional love and hold no conditions on extending this to other people, even if they seem superficial, judgmental or uninterested.

What matters is that you know who you are, be who you are regardless of how the world is.

When you vibrate this positive, loving energy, notice how the world around you changes.

 

How to Attract Abundance

“Abundance is not something we acquire, it is something we tune into.” – Wayne Dyer

Before abundance manifests outwardly, it must first be cultivated inwardly.

So within, so without.

In order to attract abundance, we must first be abundance.

What does it mean to be abundance? It means to vibrate the energy of abundance, which is to live from a state of pure, nonjudgmental love and compassion. Abundance is the natural energetic vibration of love.

It is not the outward manifestation that is of the most importance, but it is actually the mindset that we have in our innermost world, for it is that which pulls like to like.

We attract abundance when we vibrate a particular frequency into the universe. It is a very specific energy and there are certain beliefs/assumptions/fears that block off our inherent positive energetic vibration.

We were naturally born with this energetic vibration of love and abundance, however, we learned and were conditioned to cut ourselves off from our inherent ability to love ourselves and others.

At the deepest level, fear symbolizes a separation from love, which is who we really are. Fear is but an illusion, and we are never, ever separate from the love that is inherently who we have always been and always will be.

We learned early on in our culture and society that winning in life means being the best, and being the best means putting others down. This very belief that in order to succeed we must be divided from others is the very first limitation that cuts us off from abundance.

We learned to be selfish and that givers only get taken advantage of. We learned that “everyone is out to get us.” With this belief, we cut ourselves off from abundance.

We learned that since we are “not good enough” just the way we are, we have to strive and try in order to achieve and to have, so that the world could validate our worth. With this belief, we cut ourselves off from abundance.

We learned through painful experiences of abandonment and rejection that “we are unlovable.” So we live our lives afraid of giving ourselves to others, afraid of being authentic and genuine, unwilling to risk being vulnerable in relationships with others. With this belief, we cut ourselves off from abundance.

We learned to be realistic and practical, and that pursuing what we really wanted and dreamed of was impossible. We learned to live within the confines of our fears rather than facing them, and with that, we made peace with feeling numb instead of feeling the pain of taking risks and encountering new fears and challenges.

The lack that we experience in our life is a direct reflection of the limitation that we unconsciously uphold in our minds.

Limitation is just fear.

To break free of limitation means to vibrate an energy that is free of fear.

Fear dissolves with awareness.

Release fear of judgment/rejection/abandonment/what others think.

Reconnect to who/what you really are which is: pure awareness, love, potentiality, being. When you do so, you vibrate abundance and abundance cannot help but gravitate to you.
