The Power of Personal Intention

Intentions are the true power behind any great achievement.  It doesn’t matter if it’s personal, professional, spiritual, or psychological.  We really need to be looking at ways to be more intentional with our worlds.  If we wait for others, we fail.  If we procrastinate with intentions, we may lose drive. If we wait to find the motivation, we most likely won’t. To truly be the victor of the life that we want, it’s so important to create the intention of what that will look, feel and sound like in our reality. Don’t wait for it to come, don’t wait for the right time, don’t find one more excuse!  Take the initiative to get clear on what you do want and set intentions around that feeling and experience!  It’s the momentum of any worthy personal experience.

 

I like to think of myself as a manifesting master. I have learned over that past 20 years that we are more powerful and in control of the life that we are living than we have any awareness of.  What I have found is that we are all capable of creating through the power of deliberate intention, f

 

ocus and belief!  ALL OF US.  The biggest thing I observe is that people sabotage themselves with indwelling thoughts and beliefs that they do not actually deserve the life they desire, or somehow they don’t believe that they can actually do it.  I have created many amazing experiences and feelings in my world! I have also admittedly created some really hard experiences, as I was not aware of what I was intentionally creating. Lessons learned and movement forward was a great lesson in shifting my attention and intentions!  For me, It began with a book, a curiosity, an indwelling feeling and thought frame that I deserved to have the life that I wanted, not one that was being handed to me.  I wanted to create a life that felt good, and truly filled me with the feelings of a happy, vibrant and healthy experience. I knew I could, but I came from the background that you have to work hard and you have to settle for some things because that was just the way it was. That thought never set well with me. I was a very rebellious spirit as a youth and I recognize now that it was only because I was not willing to settle into a world view that felt foreign and small, to keep it simple. I am not a woman that could ever be kept in a box with a label. I now know that the way to create the relationship, the career, the body, the feelings, the vibe you desire is all about setting the intention. Of all the tools in the toolbox of manifesting, this is the golden rule. Without an intention, you have no vision, no enthusiasm, no belief, no desired feeling, and you won’t achieve the level of true satisfaction you truly want. If you feel less than happy with your world and feel like you’re stuck, I challenge you to set an intention and truly give 100% to it and see what happens.

Set the intention, first and foremost, for how you want to feel during your day.  This alone is life changing. I believe that we emit an energy to the world that sets our day in play. If you’re just waking up and going with the day, who knows how you will feel by noon! So many things can happen that set your tone if you have not decided, committed and are focused on the intention you have set for yourself. If you set the intention to feel happy, and you start the day with this vibration flowing through you, you will make coffee with vigor, you will see the birds and have a reason to smile, you will make breakfast with joy, feeling grateful for the opportunity to do so. You will begin to find that your brain begins to process the world differently and find that you are feeling more happy feelings during your day. Seriously, it’s this easy. On the other hand, if you do not commit to this intentional feeling, I can guarantee that you may find simple frustrations that can drive you to find the next one. Before you know it, you are certainly not in the happy space and your day just takes shape around the simple things that may have swayed your attention. Listen, life is not perfect, but you can set your intention to stay higher than the lower disturbances that come your way. We do not have to accept the invite to every negative feeling or experience that arrives. This is the truth!

When discussing any life goals or changes that are coming up in your world, set the intention for the highest and most aspiring experience that could take place within those intentions!  If you want a new job, and you just sit around frustrated with the job you are in and find yourself complaining about the job, thinking it will never change and feeling frustrated about it, chances are you will not find another job that matches the desired feelings you do want because you didn’t consider the fact that your unhappiness is keeping you from attracting the job that could truly be fulfilling and joyous. Why? Because you allowed yourself to become more intune with the frustration, rather than recognizing the frustration, and then intentionally setting the focus on what you do want! When you do this, you are making the commitment to finding the good about where you are, while intentionally aligning with what you do want, which activates the energy and actions to get what you do desire!  Remind yourself during your day of what you do want, where you are headed, and do not give up on that goal!

YOU CAN ACHIEVE ANYTHING YOU SET YOUR MIND TO.

You have to begin to focus more on your happiness than on your frustrations. You must intentionally get in the drivers seat of your life’s experiences. In a world of content that tells you that mediocracy is ok, find your way back to feeling good about life! It’s easy to settle for what comes. Find your way into intentional living!  Find the feelings of joy and enthusiasm and find your oomph again! Life is happening at an incredibly fast pace these days.  It is so important that we take the time to set an intention for the life that we want.  One of the most common things that I see with people who are struggling in any area of their life is that they don’t know how they got to the point of frustration. I think the reason “it just happens” is because the intention for your life and your desired level of happiness was not set, and this makes it easy to adapt to a version of life that just shows up. Stop that! The way to change this reality is to set powerful intentions!

I challenge you today to find one word that describes how you want to feel. Write it down, put it on your phones lock screen, paste on the bathroom mirror, put it at your desk, on your car dash, and use the word as your mantra.  Remind yourself constantly that you are choosing to feel this certain feeling and that you have the right to feel this way. Choose your experiences, your conversations, your food, your clothes, your music, and anything that comes up in life that you have a choice about and align with the vibration of the feeling that you desire to experience.  It’s so powerful and I promise it can be the one of the simplest and easiest things to do to begin to direct your life on the path of true happiness.

Remember this, my friends,

You either master your mind, or your mind WILL master you.

Be the victor in your life, let go of the victim role.  Believe in you, and know that you have unrealized potential that is waiting to be recognized and acknowledged. Tap into it by turning your personal power on! Setting intentions is truly the foundation of realizing, experiencing and fulfilling your potential! I believe in you! I hope you do, too.

Consciousness & Mass Marketing of Pharmaceuticals

It is not too often that I sit on the couch and watch a national television show, however, I was watching on Sunday. I was vexed by a scene that I watched and the thoughts that came into play after watching this commercial. The thought was, it has become normal for people to watch the pharmaceutical companies market their drugs, on national television. It has become normal for people to allow these ads to glisten hope and desire for something good that may come from taking such drugs. I do realize there are certainly drugs that are life altering and absolutely life enhancing, but not ones that offer you hope of having less intestinal gas, or an erection that lasts but shouldn’t last more than 4 hours, or will let you eat all the horrible food you want and keep your perfect body mechanisms from registering the heartburn and gastrointestinal issues that warn you there is a problem, a drug that promises to make life feel better, while you continue to have rage and anger build up inside. As if that is not alarming enough, as I sat and watched 3, in a half an hour period, I was literally laughing at the side effects that these drugs cause and the fact that they actually tell you.  The upsell at the beginning of the commercial was so masterfully played, that these horrible side effects didn’t seem so bad. At least I am left to assume that, since the pharmaceutical companies pay millions of dollars for each advertisement. Most of the drugs that I am speaking of, that are advertised on tv are ridiculously cunning and absolutely undertaking of the perfection of the human body and the natural healing process. Why as a culture, as humans, do we allow for such thinking and such scrupulous undermining of our intelligence and innate healing process?  We have lost touch with nature, with evolution, and with the indwelling voice that I believe would tell you otherwise, if connected.

The population, presently, seems to be searching for the quick fix and if presented, it will be scooped up and gobbled, without a second thought.  We look to a pill to make us happy, to make us thin, to make us gain, to make us have better sex, to make us able to eat greasy fried food with out pain in organs that are screaming for you to stop, to sleep, to take that edge off, to help us off a drug of addiction and then list goes on and on.  I have personally observed people lose their minds from drug combinations, lose their lives from continuing to eat sugar and processed foods when they are on blood sugar meds to continue, lose their lives when they are searching for opiates on the street that their doctor gave them for years but now withholds, from drugs that gave them erections for hours, and they craved to experience more than their beloved wives, and so forth.  To me, I think this is a clear indication of the mass loss of conscious living that has seemed to wash over so many of our lovely people.  I want to stay on point here, but its a great time to bring up, quickly, the drugs that are in our foods, and the people that eat them are craving to eat it.  It is not nutrition, it is marketing for drugs that make people feel momentary satisfaction, only to be left wanting more. The drugs in conventional livestock farming. Drugs are everywhere, more so than ever in our world.  We look to find the quick fix.

The politics of this epidemic is all about money.  The money that comes from keeping people on the medications, from the sickness that continues to line the hospitals and then even more pharmaceuticals get handed out, treating the illness, and the wheelhouse of disease that is so accepted in our culture today.  They do not care about you when they are telling you that they can help you not feel gas, but you have intestinal bleeding, and may have liver failure. They do not care about you when they find that a chemical creates a sugar like substance, but trials and tests show cancer tumors and genetic distortions to babies from mothers injected with such chemicals.  They do not care about you when they tell you that you can not afford your meds anymore when insurance clams down on the prescription writing.  They do not care about you when you kidneys go into dialysis from a med that you used for 5 years to let you eat the foods that were killing your kidneys in the first place.  They care about how and why the next person will choose to take their products.  The pharmaceutical companies actually write and assist in medical school text books.  This is both alarming and unethical, yet it still happens.  The doctor is not always the bad guy.  They may believe they are doing the right thing, as they were taught and do not get me wrong here, as stated above, there are good things that drugs do.  I believe that, too.  But they are not meant to be the healing hub of our species.  It has become a big business and you’re the customer.  They do not care about you.  Im sorry if you think differently. They care about profit.  They are more invested in your sickness and dependency than your independence and wellness.

The consciousness of our culture is on the edge of complete hypnosis. The commercial only emphasized this awareness to me.  Being who I am, living the life I do, working with people I do, and discussing with peers in my field, has created more passion inside me to help shatter the illusion of the lies and the hypnosis happening.  It is my belief that we must get back to ourselves and learn to listen to our body and learn to eat and care for ourselves, intuitively.  Food is medicine.  Rest is medicine.  Nature is medicine. Water is medicine.  Love is medicine.  Meditation is medicine.  No one is talking about that on national TV.  I am 41 years old, I run every day, I meditate, I eat whole foods, I sleep well, I spend time outdoors, I drink water, and I feel so intuitively connected to my body, to my mind and to my being as a whole.  I do not worry when I feel a pain, I honor it and work to find out the source of what is happening.  I do not overdo life, I rest and make conscious choices about what and who I will invest my energy on.  I am compassionate and empathetic to those that are lost in the culture we live in, running so fast there may be no time to even think for a moment about how you actually feel.  You may be so sick that you have lost connection to the indwelling voice that screams to slow down and take care of yourself.  You may really believe that you are doing all you can do too, and that is where I say, the hypnosis is working.  I can not think of a time that I have been alive that it has been more clear that people no longer think for themselves, know how to help themselves organically, and often just look for someone to tell them what to do.  I could go on and on about the relevance of this and living an authentically happy and vital life, but I am really trying to stay focused on the drug industry and what they are doing to our culture.  We need to raise our awareness that we must fix ourselves from inside.  There is no other way!  The drugs are not the way!!! I can tell you that I can offer you advice on ways to heal your life, and that I will charge you X amount of dollars to teach about choices and lifestyle, and you will say “no, I am going to go to the doctor because my insurance will pay for it”.  This is precisely the point that I am making, that we must wake up and see that we are not being cared for by the medical profession the way we used to. Consciousness has to change.  We have to want more from our life than band aids and quick fixes.  We have to see the marketing that is constantly telling us we should be better, we should look better, we should feel better and if we do this or that, we will.  We will feel better when we learn to love ourselves and take care of ourselves, inside and out.  We must choose to invest in ourselves, our bodies, and our minds.  We must.  You buy the best vehicle because you want to be safe, but you don’t invest in premium quality foods and experiences to keep your body safe of disease and premature aging. You need sleep but you stay up watching tv.  You need hydration, but you won’t drink water because you don’t like the taste.   Our consciousness must be reawakened and is my sincere desire to help that happen.

 

Life is moving fast. Be good to you. Honor yourself and your body.  Know you deserve to feel good, body, mind and spirit. Know that prescriptions are not the answer, long term.  Know that you can change.  Know that you are in control of your life through every single choice, every single action and know that life can and should feel good! Love yourself. Love yourself enough to choose to see the reality of what is happening to our culture. We are being prescribed a truth that is sick, and the greater truth is you do not have to subscribe, or fill the prescription given.  You have control of your life, whether you recognize it or not!  Conscious and critical thinking is invaluable, please hold on to yours.  Dig your self out.  Love yourself and your people enough to show up, whole.
