True Power Of Intention

Updated on July 18, 2016

Intention - Conductor of The Warrior Spirit

Intention is so misunderstood.

Seminar leaders promoting systems of goal achievements frequently speak about the power of intention, but seldom do they teach what the power of intention really is. They'll tell you "to be successful you need to have a plan and work your plan to the letter with focus on each step." They'll teach you that the way that goals materialize, depends on following your plan with focused attention, and through the power of your will, that which you intend, will materialize. They'll say, “Visualize it and work your plan.... and work it like mad.” Intention is so misunderstood.

So many, in fact thousands of people who attend these seminars go forth and do just that. They set up their dream board with pictures of the things they want with focus on “intending” those dreams into existence. Thousands of people attend these seminars, and I was one of them, yet few actually materialize their dreams by following their plans. Although they have great intentions, a doable and accurate step by step plan, and a strong disposition to stay focused on steps with actions, and even still, often their expectations are seldom met.

So typically the shattered individual will spend more money on more seminars, that teach the same thing... believing there must be something to fix in themselves in order to be a success.

The Universe Thought you were a good idea.

But do we need fixed?

I've personally spent thousands of dollars on those types of seminars, books and audios. Always working on learning more, believing that success must happen once I get myself really ready. Literally, I've spent thousands of dollars and I've invested so much time in learning, yet success escaped me. No matter how much energy I spent focused on intending my goals into manifesting, my expectations not being met, had me continually beating myself up. After beating myself up, I'd go spend more time and money trying to fix what I thought was broken. No amount of intention (as I understood it) was enough.

Thankfully I also spent a huge amount of time and money seeking the deeper, higher meaning of life and who I really am. Studying Mysticism, Alchemy, Meditation and deep philosophical content, my path of learning became very broad and inclusive. I had all the sales and marketing material studied, goal planning and many business training classes behind me, PLUS, a wealth of understanding on the table. All the ingredients were there, and as the universe unfolded a deeper meaning as to who I am, I came in contact with Jennifer Hough. Her insight and understanding has helped me put all the ingredients into the bowl. And guess what the bowl is. It was me, I'm the bowl.

Release Your Expectations.

Conductor verses the Ego

Our intention is in line with the dream of the planet. Intent has nothing at all to do with the ego, or human form. Therein lies the challenge.... to see intention as the conductor of our personal symphony.... and remember, no two people play the same symphony.

Intention is NOT from the EGO's point of view, nor the EGO's desires. That is a power filled accurate statement and worth repeating. “Intention is NOT from the EGO's point of view, nor the EGO's desires.”

Intent understood, or maybe better said. "embodied into our human form," dances with the dream of the planet. The ego, attached to our human form, has to be silenced in order to hear the conductor. The ego's noise is limited to the dream of the world.

* Note words planet and world are used on purpose herein.... each a different meaning.

The conductor of course is our higher self, or inner being.

Two Wolves Story

The Two Wolves

The Two Wolves

The Native story of the two wolves.... "which one do you feed?" ...... The noisy ego..... or the inner being. The ego's version of the two wolves story is good verses evil.... but the deeper meaning of the story is of the conductor, your inner being, verses the ego.

The conductor, or your inner being... brings with it the complete orchestra to play "your personal symphony," which is in complete harmony with the dream of the planet. Lately, I've been more and more dancing in the flow of things, and amazing results are coming to me.

You see, the true power of intention will have you dancing with what the universe presents to you in the current moment. It takes shifting from the head to the heart, to activate the true power of intention in your life. If you manage to get the ego out of your way, life becomes a dance of unfathomable magic. Intention thus is “being in the flow.”

      Rather than taking the long, circuitous "spiritual" route, I have found it is better to roll the dice until your number comes up. Many of these seminars are cults, designed to string you along. They were never meant to make you successful, but as long as you blame yourself, they have access to your wallet.

      Neil - I admit, I have to watch things financially. However, even if I were rich, I am aware I would not stay that way if I allowed people to rip me off.

      Say Yes to life - Cheers bro.... just remember, "The universe thought you were a good idea - or you would not be here." ... that in itself "IS" abundance.

      Jennifer Hough's quote is inspiring. We must dance to proclaim who we are. Your thoughts on intention are meaningful and help to stimulate one's move forward.
