The following piece is an excerpt from my book, “Word, From Your Mother,” a daily guidance journal written for my children, Liv and Pierce-Gabriel.
A good friend of mine said something to me that got me thinking. She said, “If it is to be, it is up to me.” Ironically enough, the next day, I read one of Deepak’s blogs, and a similar message came through. He said, “Without conscious intention, nothing can happen in the direction you desire.” In other words, intention (your aim, purpose, or intent), along with action, leads to the desired outcome.
Sometimes it isn’t easy to do these two things simultaneously without becoming attached to either one of them (the intention or the outcome). On my journey, I find it most appropriate to “ask,” or set my intention first, “God of my heart, I ask and desire that I will land a job that serves others;” in other words, “putting it out there” and then waiting for the response or the outcome to happen naturally.
If we place attachments to the outcome—like a sense of urgency or desperation skipping over intentionality, we won’t attract what we should imagine to already “have.” I also feel that the more precise your intention is or the higher your vibration is, the more likely you are to attract all that is good and satisfying in your life. Some refer to this as the Law of Attraction: what you put out there comes back to you; however, I feel it goes a bit deeper than that and would instead turn to the biblical verse, Matthew 7:7: Ask, and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.
It’s all about the flow of energy in your life. You can choose how free you indeed are. Abraham Hicks once said, “You are so free, you can choose bondage.” We do create our reality through our thoughts, intentions, and beliefs. We can choose which way to go, and we can change the course if it doesn’t work. It seems so simple to grasp the written words as described but another to play it out in our daily lives without interference or distraction. The interference is that non-stop chatter that goes on in our heads. Again, to reach liberation and truly put intention and desirable outcomes to work, you need to still your body and clear your mind of all the clutter.
Even if you set aside one minute per day to chill out and “be,” you’ll see that limitless possibilities are awaiting us in all that we seek in life. Make it a goal to take small steps, incrementally, to still your body and ask all that you desire in your heart of hearts. Don’t expect immediate answers. Just bask in the quietness of being. The answers will eventually come. As Eckart has put it in his book, A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose, “Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness.”
