Do you intend to have a happy life? Do you intend to be successful and attract abundance? How am I able to achieve that? The words “intention” and “abundance” have recently appeared in many articles and books I have read. The thought of these words is not that new as shown in the following text:
“When you realise there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.” (Lao Tzu)
“God is able to provide you with every blessing in abundance.” (St. Paul)
Dr W. Dyer writes in his book about intention that when we change the way we look at things, the things you look at change. Our language and our thoughts play a very important role – all the time. If we use these words: “Please send me more money”, we intend to ask for more money. Having this way of thinking about money we send out the message that we need more money because we don’t have enough. It is the last part of our wish that we get more of, namely “not enough” and we get more of “not enough” instead of abundance.
How can we change our words so we achieve what we intend to get? We need to rewrite our own script and say that I have enough money, and I allow what I already have enough of to flow to me. – When we start to realise the difference in the way we express ourselves, we are able to turn it around. It is like changing habits.
To be aware of the fact that we cannot hold on two different feelings at the same time, you can use the word intention to make a nice shift. For example, the other day I sat on the train and realised I didn’t feel as I wanted to. I usually feel very excited when going to work as I love what I am doing – it is not “work” to me. I then stopped the limiting feeling by asking myself about that negative feeling. First I said that I don’t want that feeling.
Next question will then be what I want instead. I then told my self, that I intend to feel incredible energetic and excited. I then focused on that feeling and ended up having the most fantastic day. Everyone was extremely nice (I had to go and change an umbrella that didn’t work, I had things to take care of at work that I didn’t find was what I most wanted etc.) Believe or not, from now on I intend to change whenever I want or need to. I am looking forward very much to keep using this new intention word and make it my habit.
Enjoy all your great intentions.
