Intention was the theme of my morning practice. It wasn’t an intention it was more the universe putting it in front of me. My morning includes some inspired reading and my current read is Living a Life of Awareness by Don Miguel Ruiz Jr. This morning’s lesson was The Power of Intent, that was followed up with a meditation on Insight Timer Fueling Intention by Bethany Aurel Hagan. I definitely recommend both the book and the AP noted above.
Intention happens consciously or unconsciously we put certain vibrations out into the universe both good and not so good. An example of this is my recent return to writing it has been something I’ve been thinking about for a while, then a friend mentioned they’ve missed reading some of my posts on Facebook, my cat’s vet told me I should write a book, then ads kept popping up for the MacBook Air. I had been writing in a journal but I hadn’t shared anything in at least two years. I followed up with the thought and here we are. Not so good intentions happen all the time, for instance you wake up after sleeping through your alarm and you think to yourself today is going to be one of those days and it continues to spiral downhill from there.
Setting an intention whether it is for the day ahead or for something tangible like a laptop allows us to be aware of messages and guidance toward those intentions. Like those random conversations about me writing from a friend and the vet. The brain will start to recognize things that will assist you toward your intention. An example of this is when I was looking for a new car to buy I narrowed it down to two different models, then they seemed to be the only cars on the road! Which is why when we oversleep, we need to recalibrate the thought into a positive outcome like my day started late because I needed the extra rest. I’m going to be ready for anything that comes my way!
I’ll end with one of my favorite quotes from the late Dr. Wayne Dyer “When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”
Today I had an intention,
