Start your morning with a simple intention to focus your energy and stay mindful throughout the day.
Focused intentions are very powerful. They are instructions for the universe, set in motion to orchestrate the complete fulfillment of your desires. This requires trust, and relinquishing the belief that you’re in control of your destiny.
A state of mind
Our minds are full of our internal dialogue, a constant loop of thoughts, emotions, and memories.
When I get overwhelmed or anxious, it’s when my mind is not in control. I need to silence the thoughts and bring my mind into a state of conscious thought. Contrary to popular belief, mediation is more than releasing all thought. It’s an exercise on how to control your mind. This allows you to think with intention and purpose.
Set an intention
Right after your daily meditation, set your intention — for the day, for the month, for the year. Say it out loud and release it into the air.
The magical time right after your meditation, when you’ve reached a state of restful awareness, is prime time for setting your intention. You should feel content and centered. Your intention should not come from a place of selfish need or want.
You do not need to dwell or become consumed with your intention. Once you set it, you can forget it. Let it go from your mind.
Probably the hardest part (for me, anyways) is letting go of the outcome. Living in uncertainty is difficult. Don’t listen to the voice that says you have to be in control, that you have to force it, that obsession and vigilance is the only way to get a result. Detach from a specific result. The outcome you’ve envisioned may not be as good as the one the universe has in store for you.
We do not know how everything will work out, but we must be confident that it will as it should. Attachment is based on fear and insecurity. Detachment is based on the unquestioning belief in the power of your true Self. Intend for everything to work out as it should, then let go and allow opportunities and openings to come your way.
