We are co-creators of our life. We have all heard the following sayings: We are creating machines. You are what you think. Your life is your thoughts in action. What you think now will be your tomorrow. Our now is a result of past intentions and desires, conscious and subconscious.
The truth is we live in a continual state of creation. As energetic beings, our energy flows in the direction of our thoughts – our energy flows where our attention goes. And when we place our attention to our intention the Universal Intelligence will orchestrate an infinite number of events in the quantum field – the field of spiritually – to bring about and manifest our desires.
The difference between Intention and Desire is this; If you have an intention say for example to have fish for dinner you will go to the shop and buy the fish and cook it for dinner. If you desire fish for dinner with no intention you will have a craving that will not be satisfied at least not without intention. And this only serves to occupy our minds, take up vital creative energy and distract us from our true nature.
It’s important when setting your intention to state it in the positive and in present tense. If you say to yourself I am working towards health, wealth and abundance, then so be it. You will continuously be working toward this goal and never really attaining it. If you state I am living in health, wealth and abundance then so be it. You may not see the results immediately but they will happen. The when depends on a number of things… your belief, your vibrational alignment, and the timing of the event. When it is in the best interest of all involved or even if it is in the best interest of all involved to not see this event actualized. This is where faith and belief comes in but that’s another topic!
I have long held the belief that we are responsible for creating our life. And that our thoughts are powerful beyond measure. So much so that years ago I was diagnosed with a condition that I firmly believed I could think my way out of. I couldn’t and the condition became much worse and I ended up going under surgery and having lengthy post-op treatment. I realise now that what I was doing was using affirmations to state my way to health. I wasn’t vibrationally aligned and I didn’t have the wisdom or knowledge I needed or hey… it just wasn’t the right time.
So what do I know now that is the difference that makes the difference; emotion. Emotion is the vehicle on which our desires and intentions ride. There are only two emotions from which all other emotions stem – Fear and Love. Anything other than Love takes you away from your true nature. Anything other than Love lowers your vibration. The vibration you have radiates out into the universe and is matched by source, God, Mother Earth Father Sky or the Universal Intelligence. When your vibration is radiating to Love you are vibrationally aligned in a way that attracts to you better feeling things.
“What you are living all day, every day is the manifested evidence in your own belief. A belief is only a thought you continue to think, a vibration that uou have practiced often enough that now it is dominant and therefore comes up easily and often, is a point of attraction that brings evidence of itself to you…” Abraham
Giving thanks, feeling gratitude for something, everyday will bring about significant change in your vibration. I may have digressed from the original topic of Intention and Desire but there is a reason.
Question put to Deepak Chopra: How can you identify intuition from wishful thinking (hope) or fear? And what is the relationship between intuition, synchronicity and manifesting your desire in the presence of obstacles coming up?
This is Deepak’s response: Simple and accurate intuition is devoid of fear or hope. Intuition presents itself independent of our anxiety and anticipation. Synchronicity is a kind of external intuition where we glimpse the orchestrated workings of cosmic intelligence around us.
Manifesting our desires or intentions is a different phenomenon altogether. It involves sending a request to the universal intelligence in the silence of our awareness and then allowing it to fulfill that intention according to your highest purpose. Any obstacles in this process from the individual would involve blocks in awareness that prevent the experience of pure consciousness. Other obstacles would involve the proper timing for the fulfillment of the desire. But that isn’t really an obstacle as much as it is a lack of understanding of how our desires need to be coordinated with others in our environment.
So in closing – where intention and desire meet is the field of pure potentiality this is where the magic happens.
