Power of Intention

Intention – an anticipated outcome that is intended or that guides your planned actions. This is the general meaning of the Intention. But for most of us intention is just another word. While we live a mediocre life we tend to forget what is the actual meaning of Intent or Intention. We are limited by our thoughts and our intentions.

Intention is all around us, it is just like gravity. Thanks to Sir Isaac Newton we know that the gravity exists, but what about Intention – the following example will give you a simple idea about the intention.

Have you ever tried to recall a name or place? The harder you try to recall the name the farther it goes away. Once you give up the try and after some time just out of the blue you will remember the name or the place you tried to recall earlier; that is the power of intension. We need use the intention to fulfill our desires. To see the power of intention try to do the following exercise.

Write down a specific goal you want to achieve, and then carry that paper with you all the time. Read it at least three to four times a day, especially before Meditation or Prayer. Also read it as soon as you wake up in the morning. When you pray or meditate you create intentions – nevertheless the power of Meditation and Prayer has to be discussed in a separate post. By reading your goal frequently, you create an intention. And another powerful yet very difficult thing to do is to relinquish your attachment to the outcome. What does this means – you intent to achieve a certain goal, but you release your attachment to the outcome. Just like the name or place recalling example, let the universe handle your intention; therefore don’t worry about the outcome. When you worry about the outcome, you create stress & anxiety. Trust the power of the universe; believe that everything in this world is as it should be.

When the time is right your intentions will be fulfilled. If it is not, then surrender to the outcome. Eventually, everything will be as it should be.
