The Power of Intention
Intention is the starting point and your super power when it comes to achieving your dreams and goals. While many things can and do happen randomly in our chaotic and unpredictable world, there is an energy; a force that has a measurable effect on events and occurrences. That is, while much is outside of our control, where are some things that we can and do control. These things for the most part are what is directly related to our personal being and the energy we send out into the world. We have control over most aspects of our ourselves and our actions reacting with the world around us. We do not always have control of outcomes, but we do have control of what we individually put out into the world and to some extent that affects a larger sphere of interactions and occurrences, which become our sphere of energy or influence.
So where does this all lead us with regard to our power in the world and how that relates to intention. If we are to get the ball rolling, so to speak, to accomplish any action, including our most coveted dreams and aspiration, it must begin with our thoughts and the energy they emit, followed by the actions we subsequently pursue. On the cognitive level, preconception is what becomes intention, and that leads us to plans and actions, which become accomplishments and led us down the path to success in achieving what we wish to achieve.
What if we don’t have a clear intention? Then the core of what ignites us to move forward is not there. Not having an intention is like starting out on a journey without a destination in mind. While it can be done, it is hard to plot a course or even to know when or if, you have reached your end point or destination. You may get somewhere, but it may not be where you wanted to go. This is why setting an intention is so important to reaching your dreams and goals. It doesn’t matter how large or small your dreams are, you have a better chance of achieving them, if you set an intention.
Whatever it is, your intention is powerful. It fuels and gives purpose and direction to everything that follows from it. It creates the direction for your journey and becomes a compass to determine if you are on course.
If you want to jump-start your progress toward attaining your goals, set a small intention related to your end goals every day. You will find that you are making small and constant steps toward that larger goal faster and more easily than you ever thought you could. It seems like a simple thing, but you would be surprised at how often we attempt to achieve our goals without any forethought. Think of how far your car would get if you failed to put gas in it. Our intention is the fuel for our goals and aspirations. It is futile to try to move forward and achieve those goals without clear and relevant intentions

About the Blog
After 4 years of featuring at least 1 guest Author a month this blog changed in 2020. I loved featuring the posts of other great people who also believe in mind, body, spirit wellness. I will continue to feature articles submitted to me on this topic that align with my own mission. However, finding & reaching out to others is time consuming and I do it for my radio show, Soul Talks and other groups and projects and so for this blog i will be ramping up my own posts and perspective. posting mostly my own blogs. I will be happy & excited to post articles from those who submit them to me.
