“Intention is one of the most powerful forces there is.
What you mean when you do a thing will always
determine the outcome. The law creates the world.”

I love the photo above, not just because of the endearing quality of seeing a grandfather sharing love with his grandson but because of the intention that is present in this photo–showing and sharing love. I used to think this was merely a loving photo but today when I wanted to write about intention, I saw this photo differently. Here is a man who has set his intention to create loving relationships with his grandchildren putting his attention on the creation of that relationship with his grandson.

As a transformative life coach, I have learned to live, coach and interact with I AM statements. These are statements that keep me focused on whatever it is I am working on, creating, manifesting. I AM statements follow the formula of Intention+Attention=Manifestation. First what I intend to do or create, then paying attention to what I intend to do or create, manifests what I intended to do or create. For example:
I AM a woman of desire,
sharing kindness and love,
creating a peaceful World.
So as a woman who desires to see peace in the World I am creating peace in the World by being kind and loving. You say the World is a big place? I say, yes it is but it is also incredibly small. With baby steps of sharing kindness and love, I can create peace where I am and with time it will spread to encompass the World as other share in the intention.
“All great acts are ruled by intention.
What you mean is what you get.”

This is Magic with a capital ‘M’! I will only get what I intend to get and daily that is governed by what I think, feel and do. If I stumble about without intention then I get a mishmash of results. If I set intention, I get what I intend–if I pay attention to my intention.
“The best way to insure you achieve
the greatest satisfaction out of life
is to behave intentionally.”

Now not all of life’s problems are easily solved BUT all of life’s problems can be better if lived through intention. Life doesn’t have to happen to you. You can create your life in all the small ways and all the big ways if you are willing to pay attention to what you intend your life to be. It’s up to you to create and manifest magic in your life.
