The Power of Setting Clear Intentions

“When you’re connected to the power of intention, everywhere you go,
and everyone you meet, is affected by you and the energy you radiate.”
~ Dr. Wayne Dyer

Recently I had the opportunity to witness the results of powerful intention unfolding during a retreat I hosted in Puerto Rico. Participants were asked to spend some time defining their intention for being part of this retreat.

The initial intentions were somewhat vague with responses ranging from “It sounded like a fun idea to come to the retreat”, and “I hope I can grow and change or get over a block in my life”.

Through further discussion, these were sharpened and clarified. As the week unfolded, the deliberateness of the intentions manifested and the magic began. It was like watching a movie where every event, circumstance, and interaction seemed to conspire to bring to focus the lessons and growth opportunities relating to each person’s stated intention.

This experience was a clear reminder that our lives unfold based upon our intentions, whether we set them deliberately or allow our sub-conscious mind to make the decision on our behalf.

When you deliberately set powerful and clear intentions, the universe will respond to your request.

What is YOUR intention

What is your goal? What would you like to accomplish today? This first month of the new year?

What will be your intention? How will you stretch and aim, with your focus, determination, energy, desire, and actions, to achieve this cherished goal?

This goal is like a bull’s eye on a target. It is the direction you will face, and where you will purchasedMLL1.2017Copy of 45217818_maim.

Your intention is your arrow. You will load that arrow with your focus, determination, energy, desire, and actions, and let it fly toward your goal.

The root of the word intention is “tend” or “intent”. Both are derived from the French and Latin words for “stretch out, strain, or aim”. Perfect words to describe how you handle your bow and arrow!

When we are deliberate in our goals and intentions, we have a greater opportunity to achieve them. And this achievement may be accompanied by changes, challenges, and a moving landscape as the universe bends to create this new reality for you. However, you have stated that it is your desire and your will to have the wonderful results that you seek.

Take aim. Let your arrow fly! Keep your sight on the bull’s eye and your feet moving in its direction.

I promise it will make life more interesting and the rewards richer!
