The Power of Intention
“You are what your deepest desire is. As your desire is, so is your intention. As your intention is, so is your will. As your will is, so is your deed. As your deed is, so is your destiny.”
Upanishads (Ancient yogic text written in 850 BCE).
Intention is the starting point of every dream. By creating and setting intentions you are taking responsibility for your happiness. When you have a clear vision about how you want to live your life, you become powerful, activate your receptivity and start manifesting what you want to attract in the world.
“To really magnify and focus your intention, we encourage you to write it down,” suggests Goddess Charm Founder Maree. “Find a quiet space, light a candle, take a few deep breaths and close your eyes. Connect to the power of your Charm, hold your Goddess in your palm and bring your intention into your mind. Feel it, see it, sense every little detail and when you’re ready, write it down in a clear and focused sentence. Every time you wear your Charm, remind yourself of your intention, be open, say yes to opportunity and allow the magic to unfold.”
How to set intentions, by Maree
Find your stillness. Settle yourself in a quiet space, light a candle or some incense, sit comfortably, close your eyes and start bringing your attention to your breath. Inhale through your nose for a count of 6, hold the breath for a count of 4, then exhale through your nose for a count of 6. Continue for a few minutes, until you feel “landed” back in your body. Every time you exhale, notice where tension can be released in the body and allow the tensions to dissolve. A good way to imagine this is to breathe in the love, and to breathe out the peace. Every time you breathe in, it’s a positive inhale, every time you breathe out, it’s a release of peace and tranquility.
Be Grateful. Intention is much more powerful when it comes from a place of contentment, rather than lack. Start to think about five things that you are grateful for in your life, big or small.
Intention with Intent. Take your goddess charm into the palm of your hand. Bring your intention to mind, feel it, see it, taste it, smell it. Get really clear about what it is that you want. The more detailed and focused you can be, the better. When you’ve got really clear about your intention, write it down in the booklet that came with your charm.
Let it go! Put your necklace on & release your intention to the universe so it can start to work it’s magic. You don’t want to to be attached or hanging on to your intention as this is rigid, based on fear and insecurity. You want to be open to the possibilities, positive, free!
Trust. Remind yourself daily of what your intention is by wearing your necklace and connecting to the essence of your goddess. Take a moment to imagine your intention manifesting. What does it look like, how does it make you feel. Be open to what comes your way. Let the magic unfold.
