Intention is defined as having a strong purpose or aim, accompanied by a determination to produce a desired result. Most people that live life with this type of intention are characterized as non-stoppable. They will not allow anything or anyone get in the way of accomplishing their goals. Even when the naysayer’s are trying to convince them that something can’t be done, they continue their mission with fierce determination. For them, it’s about never giving up coupled with a clear picture of what they want. That is one way of describing intention. Here is a simple truth that I would like to share with you, “Intention is so much more than our destructive ego or our determine will.” As Carlos Castaneda says, “In the universe there is an immeasurable, indescribable force which source calls intent, and absolutely everything that exists in the entire cosmos is attached to intent by a connecting link.

Once we understand the principle of intent the way that Carlos Castaneda describes it, our desire to have a strong purpose or aim will no longer come from our ego but instead it will come from within. And what I know for sure is that the knowledge that comes from within is the only knowledge that we can trust. By connecting to our inner being, we will have access to a higher level of consciousness whereby allowing us to live at a higher vibration. Your access to your inner being increases when you live at a higher vibration. In order to live at a higher vibration, it is essential that we practice the art of joyful living.

Since intention works along side the Universal Law of Attraction, we have to remember that like attracts like. Therefore, if you set your intention on being more joyful, you will in turn bring more joy to your life. Accordingly, you will begin to realize that intention is not something you do, but rather a force that exists in the universe as an invisible field of energy. Just imagine a force that is everywhere and there is no place that it can’t go or isn’t present. That is intention. As you set in motion your intention, you are rejoining your source energy. When you activate this source energy, you will attain the level of awareness where previously inconceivable things are available to you.

Researchers believe that our intelligence, creativity and imagination interact with the energy field of intention rather than being thoughts or elements in our brain. Thus, in order to continue the interaction with this energy field and live a successful life of pure intention, we must plug into the field of intention everyday. Once you begin to practice living this way, you will begin to notice that you are living a life of purpose because you are now being guided by your inner being and not your ego.

“Dormant forces, faculties and talents come alive and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.” - Patanjali

Your affirmation for the next 30 days is, “I am learning to live a life of pure intention everyday.”

Love, Light and Blessings
