Affirm Your Intentions

“Everything in the universe begins with intention.” -Deepak Chopra

What you think, feel, and declare matters most, as these are the greatest determining factors of the only reality you have for sure – this moment. Before every action there is an inspiration behind it, a “soul spark” of a feeling that can become realized. Whether you feel the desire to read or write a book, make tea, call a friend, book a trip, or feel the inkling to stop by a certain store,  the “energy that creates worlds” (as Abraham Hicks calls it) is constantly available to us and streaming through us.

Intentions are your way of harnessing this energy, and proactively guiding it towards attracting what you desire. Intentions are the water to the seeds of your self-determined destiny that take root in your life and flower into reality. You can consider intentions to be thoughts with wings that set energy into motion and form your experience.

“Our mind is a garden, our thoughts are the seeds. You can grow flowers or you can grow weeds.”
-Ritu Ghatourey

“Keep your thoughts positive, because your thoughts become your words.
Keep your words positive, because your words become your behaviors.
Keep your behaviors positive, because your behaviors become your habits.
Keep your habits positive, because your habits become your values.
Keep your values positive, because your values become your destiny.”

-Gandhi

 

INSIGHT:

Consciously play the gatekeeper of your mind, even for just a few hours. What seeds do you find yourself planting in each moment of each day? Do they stem from positive or negative, from love or from fear, are they supportive or weighed down by doubts? Get into a habit of seeing everything that you plant or that you allow to be planted in your mind’s garden. Pay attention to how things grow, bloom and express themselves in your life as you carefully cultivate high quality yield. We will work deeper in this area later on, but crystalizing a practice of observing and catching your own thoughts now will serve you well throughout this course and in life.

FORESIGHT:

When thinking or speaking of whatever you desire, imagine these scenarios already happening in present tense. It may seem delusional, yet all art and reality could be considered delusion before it comes into form. It is part of illusion of our art and reality. Feel everything you want in the now.

What do you desire, now, or ultimately? How does it feel to have what you desire? What are the feelings or qualities behind what you desire, that you desire? Envision and feel out what you see for yourself with all of your senses. Really feel it all. This imaginative, creative energy is the foundation on which your reality is created upon.

Stay in this flow as long as you can. If thoughts wander in with doubts and objections, think about what you desire in general, not in specifics.Whatever you may want, feel yourself there doing it, living it, being it; it happening to you and through you. Only feel how good it feels with no resistance or fears about what it means when it comes.

Give yourself permission to daydream in all your glory. The more you see how much these “imagination sessions” light up your path, the more into them you may find yourself. To amplify this practice, journal the visions you see and the richness of the feelings you feel as you envision your desires met. We will explore more about getting there later on in Manifesting.
