Get Clear on Your Intentions and Desires

Your dream is more likely to come true if you first see it clearly in your mind.

What would fulfill your needs at the deepest level? What would allow your soul to complete its destiny? Develop a clear vision of what you want and be specific with your intentions so that the universe has a clear structure to work with. At the same time, you don’t want to be so locked into your vision that you miss the different and more wonderful response that may present itself. Although it is important not to be attached to a particular outcome,formulating an unambiguous intention is essential.

It’s better to write your intentions in positive language rather than in terms of what you don’t want, because the important part of formulating intentions is to generate that field of awareness that feels spiritually complete, whole, and content. That state will naturally organize the means through which whatever you need will be manifested. If you are generating a field of lack, worry, and fear, then that is what will attract and manifest. That is why if we want peace we become that peace; if we want love, we become the love within us; if we want abundance or health, we contact and become that part of our Self, which is always content, happy, and healthy. By gently allowing our intentions to drop into that state of silence and joy, we put ourselves in the best position for those intentions to manifest.

As you consider your dreams, become clear about who you are and what would truly make you happy. Set aside external notions of success, such as labels of status, money, possessions, and social connections. This requires self-referral, or being in touch with your internal reference point that is the soul, and not your ego. It is at the point of self-referral that we are in touch with our destiny, rather than the ego which is directed by things and people outside of us.

For every intention, ask yourself two questions: 1) “How will this intention serve me?” and 2) “How will it serve everybody I come into contact with?” If the answer to both questions can be distilled to true happiness and fulfillment, then you are on the right track. Then your intention, together with surrender to the non-local mind, orchestrates its own fulfillment.
