Career Pathway #136: The Magic of Intention

I have been receiving messages on “intentioning” all week, and I am always struck by how simple yet how powerful this process can be. It is really about focus, clarity, and stating your desires to yourself and the universe.

It can be as simple as declaring your attitude for the day, and holding that thinking in mind as you progress through the day’s occurrences. I have noticed that when I am positive, my day unfolds in a positive way. I am more tuned in to the positive when I get out of bed in the morning declaring that I am going to have a great day.

Similarly we can use intention to direct our unconscious processing through our sleep. Before falling asleep, state an issue that you want to resolve, or set your focus to a particular question or idea. You may be surprised the next morning to have your resolution, idea, or inspiration. This can be coupled with some journaling before bedtime, in order to “dump” the negatives and stress from the day onto paper. This frees the mind for more productive processing.

Clients use the intentioning process in coaching to get clear on what they desire, to focus on that desire in their mind, and to declare that desire to themselves and to the higher power they may believe in, so that assistance and guidance can be provided. I have witnessed numerous times how a clients’ intention work producing leads, opportunities, and inspiration toward their desired outcomes.
