This time of year, we always enjoy soaking in this amazing energy of expansion. We feel encouraged to broaden our vision past what we think is possible for ourselves and to see beyond our limiting beliefs. Intention is at the base of each of these dreams.
As Deepak Chopra stated from the classic Vedic text of India known as the Upanishads, “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.”
Yet, as with as any seed planted, intentions can’t grow if you do not nurture them and release them into the depth of your consciousness.Below are some simple ways to stay connected to a clear intention.
Step 1: Be clear on what your intention is.
Formulate it positively, and state it as concisely as possible. Stay away from negative and long statements of what you don’t want. Instead, use affirmative and short sentences.
Step 2: Make sure that your thoughts, the way you speak, your actions, and your attitudes are in full alignment with your clear intention.
Then take time daily to reflect by asking yourself these questions:
1. Thought – Are my thoughts in alignment with my intention? Is what I am thinking in alignment with what I want? How clear are my dreams?
2. Speech – Are my words impeccable, positive, and in alignment with my intention?
3. Action – Are my actions demonstrating my intention? Are they coming from a place of self-love and clarity?
4. Attitude – Is my attitude one that reflects my intention
Communication with yourself is key to staying on track with your intention.
