I recently had my parents in-law visiting us for a few days. When they first told us about their plans to visit us, I felt like my “happy camper” bubble just burst… OK, we do have some history… but I didn’t want to re-live it again… not this time! So I decided to choose my Intent for this visit – unconditional love! Yes, I decided that no matter what they say or do, my own actions will be based in love and kindness. What was interesting that once I chose to be that way, I felt lighter, I felt relieved… And fascinatingly enough, they came across this time as really kind, loving, and grateful people!
So, did they change?? I doubt it; after all they are in their 80s… Then what exactly happened?
What happened was that I experienced a power of intent! I chose to OBSERVE only “good stuff” – how appreciative they are, how caring and loving they are toward each other, etc. And I am sure that my in-laws felt differently with me as well based on how they interacted with me… They felt a shift in my energy and it triggered the shift in our relationship.
Do you realize that you can CHOOSE What to see, How to Observe?
We live in a relative world – nothing is absolute, good or bad. Therefore, YOU can choose how to SHAPE YOUR REALITY – what to experience regardless of external “objective” circumstances. No, it’s not simply “positive thinking”, which in some way is covering up of old judgments and complaints. Creating from INTENT, Choosing Your Reality is a completely different realm! Our Reality is NOT Absolute – it’s alive and can be changed by the way we relate to it, by the way we observe it and process it. Thus, when you Create from Intent, you choose a new perspective on your circumstances, on your life.
Frankly, once I started practicing using the power of intent, I was truly amazed! Suddenly, my relationships shifted, contentment replaced worries (I am admittedly a worrier type). I realized that I create all the time but without awareness, without choosing what I want to experience. Frustration, discomfort, fear, worry, anger, stress… What happens when I Choose my filters to perceive things differently, choose a different perspective on my circumstances? My experiences, my Reality change!!
It is so incredible and yet simple – when you realize this, You Become Free.
Health concerns, financial predicaments, relationship challenges, work problems, success expectations – ALL your experiences, good or bad, are Relative because nothing is absolute in this world. Therefore, You can create most uplifting and inspiring ways to RELATE to the people and circumstances in your life! Keep in mind, however, that creating from intent is not going to be a linear “cause -> effect” process. Intent is an important factor in mysterious ways the universe works; it’s not a mechanical force but it is an ever-present force, whether you are aware of it or not.
Since everything is energy, I believe that your intent sets off an energy field that has a potency of numerous outcome possibilities – possibilities that resonate with the energy frequency of your intent. You cannot fake your intent or somehow manipulate it – it has to come from your heart… Just like in my experience with my in-laws, your intent creates the energy field of your relationship with your surrounding – people, your physical body, your Self. We are able to shift WHAT we observe by shifting HOW we observe it. And by the magic of the universal intelligence, Your circumstances get aligned with Your Intent!
When you start authentically living from your “Conscious Intent”, you will notice that people and the “circumstances” will start to change… And it doesn’t matter whether they change in their reality or not – YOU will experience them differently in yours! YOUR LIFE will become Lighter and Brighter. I invite you to play this game of “Conscious Intent” and let the magic unfold!
