“In the beginning there was desire, which was the first seed of mind; sages, having meditated in their hearts, have discovered by their wisdom the connection of the existent with the non-existent”.-The Hymn of Creation

Happy Saturday everyone!! I hope you guy’s weekend is beyond awesome so far…mine is going pretty spectacular if I say so myself…the big 2-7 is coming up in a few days(yay me)…had an invigorating session of Insanity that consisted of Plyometrics and Cardio (trust me, there will be posts about that workout in the future)…and I have all the seasons of Burn Notice waiting for me on Netflix. Yep, my Saturday is lookin’ pretty good…

So we’re on to Day #5 of The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success….for those that are just tuning in, you can read about the previous four in my earlier blogs…I didn’t forget about ya:-) Ok, so Day #5….the Law of Intention and Desire; as always I will give you guys a snippet straight from the book, just to give you all an idea of what we’re talking about here so here ya go:

“Inherent in every intention and desire is the mechanics for its fulfillment….intention and desire in the field of pure potentiality have infinite organizing power. And when we introduce an intention in the fertile ground of pure potentiality, we put this infinite organizing power to work for us”.

Deepak Chopra goes into this law quite extensively, however I’ll keep it as simple as possible. First and foremost, our environment, and our world cannot change, nor can things manifest in them, until we change the things WITHIN us. That’s a given…as I have said in previous posts, our current circumstances and/or situation, no matter if its good or bad, are happening because of our most inner thoughts and feelings. I know that, for some, this can be a hard pill to swallow (if definitely was for me) but I have come to realize that it is indeed the truth. Once we CHOOSE to change our way of thinking to a more positive light, our outer world will begin to change accordingly; this change is also brought on by two essential qualities that are inherent in our consciousness: ATTENTION AND INTENTION. This is simply broken down to: Whatever we put our ATTENTION on in life (good or bad) will grow stronger; whatever we take our attention from, will disappear. Simple right? INTENTION on the other hand, “triggers the transformation of energy and information…it organizes its own fulfillment”.

So let’s recap: in order for our outer world to change, positively, we must first BELIEVE that it can happen (we must believe that we can get that job, or that car, or that man/woman), secondly, we must then throw that INTENTION into the field of pure potentiality (discussed on Day 1). This can be done in various ways. Me personally, I created a vision board of some of the most beautiful places in the world that I plan to visit. I put them in frames on the wall so that I am able to look at them everyday. You can also make a list of all of your desires (I have done this as well) and make it a point to look at it before you go to sleep and when you first wake up. Once we accomplish this, we then take the necessary ACTION to ensure that our INTENTIONS come to pass. We don’t worry about the details and the specifics…we simply BELIEVE, INTEND, THEN DO.

The key to this is to believe within ourselves that it can happen and refuse to let anyone or anything take us away from that belief. No obstacles, no negativity, no family members or friends who say it can’t happen…..NOTHING.

We have a GOD-given power in us that allows us to manifest all of our dreams and desires, but we must first KNOW that it is possible…..once this happens, we, nor our dreams, can be stopped.

Have a wonderful evening everyone! Til’ next time…..
