The Law of Intention and Desire invites you to live a life “on purpose”. The basic idea is what we focus on expands so this law requires us to clean up our negative thinking and clarify what we want in our life.
We attract things to us by focusing on or giving our attention to them. This happens whether or not we are aware of this principle. If you think negative thoughts about yourself, that attracts bad things to you – things like lack of money, loneliness, worries. If we focus on things that are positive for us, then we can attract the brighter, better future that we long for.
Let’s get started:
- Sit quietly and ask yourself, “What does my soul yearn for?”, “What do I really, really, REALLY want?” That last “really” is critical. Sometimes it takes a while to get past the surface stuff and accept that we are worthy of our desires.
- Write down your deepest desires and intentions and consider how you will feel when you get it.
- Refer to your list every day.
- Practice being in the present moment. When you are present you are more likely to catch the synchronicities and the clues that lead you to your desires.
- Cultivate an inner attitude of surrender, trusting that when things are not going exactly to your plan, the universe has something bigger in store for you.
Intentions are the fuel to manifesting your best life and have tremendous power. However, it is important to remember the things we desire should be for the highest good of ourselves and others. When and where things are effortless and you are still producing results that authentically makes you happy then you are in alignment with your highest intentions.
“When all your desires are distilled
You will cast just two votes:
To love more,
And be happy.”
