Manifest your intentions effortlessly and with ease by engaging the forces of nature. Here’s how
A mindfull approachUnhealthy goal:
Here are two very subtle things to be mindful of that in the long run cause trouble as they are very cleverly disguised!
• To become something
I want to become a good person; I want to be the best writer in the world; I want to be a kind and compassionate person; I want to be a good husband; I want to earn more money; I want to be enlightened; I want to feel more. Sounds like all are good things!
• To get rid of something
I want to get rid of my anger, jealousy, laziness, procrastination, I want to get rid of my difficulty with people. Sounds like these are good things to get rid of, don’t they?!
What makes these unhealthy and problematic in the long run is a non acceptance of the present moment – I am not all right and I have to get rid of something only then will I be acceptable. Also, the focus is on me. I am trying to become a compassionate person, I am trying not to be angry, I am trying to be rid of the fear problem, I am trying to get enlightened, I am wanting to be this and that – the self-centred motivation will colour all the efforts in a self-centred perspective. These are always tied up with the feelings of I and me and mine; I am agitated, I need to get out; I am really awake, I have got it all together…
Ego takes over in ways that one may not even be able or willing to see. The energy behind the Intention becomes clouded.
It is not very easy then to realise what is happening around you, to others in your surrounding during this self-centred pursuit causing disharmony and pain. There are various fabulous methods through which one can come to a state of balance in the present moment. For example: If you are challenged with anger and you wish to be free of that, EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) and TAT (Tapas Acupressure Technique) are extremely useful tools. A consistent practice of meditation and awareness is another very effective method.
Dr Wayne Dyer says about the much-talked-about Law of Attraction: “LOA is not about what you want; it is about who you are!”
From a state of balance, love and acceptance of oneself and the present moment, one can set up goals that, by default, generate a healthy intention. The result then does not cause pain or suffering but only leads to joy, ease, flow and peacefulness – which is what we all want, isn’t it?
What is the point if we achieve what we want to experience or intent but are unable to enjoy the experience?
Just as when we are thirsty we reach for a glass of water, we can certainly choose to point our mind to a goal and intend its fruitful achievement.
I want to be a published author; I want to travel and teach around the globe, I want to enjoy a loving, harmonious relationship – not because I don’t like the pain or incompleteness I experience now, but because I want to direct and focus my energy to this new experience.
When we choose, direct and point the mind – in this way, the effort in directing the attention is coming from a wholesome, balanced place; the intention is healthy.
