The East: air element -a reminder of my breath that renews me like the dawn of a new day and spring time.
I give thanks for my mind and ask for clarity, vision and a loving voice.
The South: fire element- that reminds me of the passion and will within. I give thanks for being able to experience my body in relation to myself and others and to transform myself and my life through my strength and anger.
The West: water element- that reminds me of the gifts of my emotions and that healing occurs in journeying inwardly. A beautiful reminder that my heart is deep like the ocean. I have much love to give and my heart is a source of creativity amidst any challenging emotions.
The North: earth element- that reminds me of my ability to create, manifest and to be grateful for all the nourishment of the land. In gratitude I yearn to be of of service to mother earth.
From a place of deep devotion I ask for my desires to be carried out for the highest good of all knowing that I may be blind, deaf or naive of things beyond my human awareness. Then, feeling supported- I feel deep reverence for all life.
Every thought, every word, every step, and every act a sacred intention…
And what is intention?
Intention aligns us with what may seem impossible with the realm of possible as it calls upon the forces of the Universe to begin to favor our desires.
Our desires are what we are moment by moment.
Our deepest desires are like seeds that grow when we let go. Holding on to our intentions means we lack faith.
It is said that the Universe is self organizing therefore, we can trust that our desires in time are fulfilled.
To trust is to allow our destiny to come naturally.
Destiny unravels from a state of surrender.
Our destiny is shaped by our desires and directed by our intentions.
Intention is prayer.
Our prayers come to fulfilment when we release hold of them. We must believe, trust, and have faith for the seeds of our desires to be fulfilled.
Intention is powerful when we are not attached to results and are truly content right where we are.
Gratitude attracts more of what we desire.
Our desires unfold even when we cannot yet see them, the more we return to our natural state of surrender.
It requires us to silence the mind and expand our awareness.
It means being willing to accept what is.
It means being gentle and kind in thoughts.
It also requires us to be willing to act with courage once we have clarity or insight...
It means being patient and trusting in divine timing.
Things only come up for healing when we are ready. They say the Universe is friendly so we can trust that any discomfort or pain shall pass.
As human beings we may struggle...and yet when we are present to what is- we can align with the love within us. We may be disheartened by circumstances or situations but we learn valuable lessons about who we really are.
May we remember in dreams or in waking moments what we are...
May we come to fill the space we truly are....
I set the intention to love wherever I go as fearlessly as possible, to dance in joy and to embrace my destiny or rewrite it as I go....
What are you in this moment or what is your intention or prayer?
How do you pray or set your intention?
