This week we are talking about Intention. I’ve been asked to be more intentional about what I am asking for. I’ve always been good about setting goals and achieving goals. But something started shifting last year where setting goals became more of an intention setting process than an outcome frame process. So with that being said, this week’s (very brief) message is about intention. En-JOY!
Any act with intention is powerful. So it doesn’t matter what type of act it is; really about the intent. Intent is not desire, we’ve been getting those two confused. Intent moves us more towards actively being a good steward of something (that is) coming into physical form. Intent gives us clarity, responsibility and a grounded pre-experience with what we desire to create. If we are in tune with this, we realize it is already there with us and we are then in a relationship with it.
A good way to remember intention is to stop right before you do something. You can take a moment and intend what you’d like to have happen next. Sometimes it is easiest to remember when you are moving from one place to the next. For example, when you get in your car you can say, “I am in the car and intend to get to _____ safely and easily.” Parking is a good one, too. “I intend to find parking at the front of the store.”
What would you like to intend for the day?
