Set Your Intention Today – Your Life Depends on It!

We at Made As Intended have been seeking, learning, and living, spiritual knowledge for decades.  It’s really not “spiritual knowledge” as much as it is simply, truth.  (It feels so good to know that!)  If there’s one thing we’ve learned over the years, that feels the most important to share, it’s this: Living an intentional life is the best thing you can do for yourself, your loved ones, and the world.  Living intentionally means that you get to decide what you truly want, and then from that intention, take action steps as prompted, to move toward it.  Without setting our intentions, we are instead reacting and responding to the never-ending needs and demands of others, carrying around hopes and dreams that never see the light of day.

There truly is so much power in clearly setting and stating your intention to the Universe.  It is said that when you do, the whole Universe conspires with you to make it happen!  This is powerful stuff.  Intention-setting begins with becoming as quiet and calm as possible, and asking yourself what you truly want.  We are firm believers in the practice of meditation to access our deepest intentions, though you can also do this through something as simple as lighting a candle, and posing the question.  Once you have it, speak or write your intention clearly.  It’s empowering to know that You get to decide what you truly want in life, and enlist the Universe for help.  This goes deeper than, for example, “I want abundance in my life.”  It becomes so much more clear and powerful when you write/speak/meditate on it in present tense, and add your Why.  “I AM financially abundant, and feel deep peace and security in my life,” or “I AM affluent, and provide generously to causes about which I care deeply.”

Once you have set your intention, trust that it has been heard and received.  Then check back in with yourself everyday, and every moment throughout the day, if necessary, to evaluate whether you are moving toward or away from what you’ve intended.  Are you embodying the energy of love, or are you worried or fearful?  We all get caught up in the thinking, doing and reacting that are part of the human experience, and get in the way of manifesting our intentions.  So, when you check in and find that you’re off track, simply restate your intention, and return to trust.  Above all, show yourself some compassion and love.  Know that you are SO LOVED and deserving of your highest intentions, and of course…absolutely Made As Intended.
