[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] An Intention is a Declaration

Intention: An intention is a declaration of expectation to the Universe of
life that brings your mind into alignment with the desires of your heart.
When setting an intention it is important for you to state exactly what you
want to experience without any attachment to how that experience should
manifest. Honesty is the key element. Do not ask what you are not willing
to work for.Iyanla Vanzant

One of my favorite teachers always says "Madam, what is your intention?" I
always laughed and said I don't want to marry you! That was a private joke
between us because I somehow associated the word intentions with courting
and getting married! My grandfather would ask any young man who came around
me "Young man, what are your intentions?" Now that I have been exposed to so many teachers and experiences I know and
understand the importance of intentions and setting them! Key thing for me
is to "get out of my own way" once I have done the work and have the faith!

What I learnt is that Intent is more than a goal, it's a place of
integration. Your intent is a place where your motives, fears, anxieties,
possibility, awareness, surrender , desires all come into play. I've learnt
not to confuse desire with intent. Desire there is a longing, intent there
is clarity, Intent arrives before you do,once your intent is pure
everything in fact will turn out allright!

Intent is about what you plan to do what you do, why and the motivation and
as Universal law, what you sow is what you reap, if your intent is to
manipulate, control, camouflage, lie cheat steal, or the like whether you
know it, chose it or not it's coming back to bite you in the arse!

So, my intentions, in 2015, I am paying attention to, I am paying attention
to the lesson in my readiness for this time and place called 2015! I'm ready! Peace!!
