What is your soul’s intention?

Imagine an intention which is based on the highest possible good for you and those around you. Now imagine an intention which is based on self-importance, greed and power. The energy behind the intention determines the outcome.

When we think about the word intention, what comes to mind? Setting goals? Creating something? Putting a message out to the universe so that it will return in a manifested form? That sounds about right. But, what are intentions anyway? And more to the point, what are your intentions?

Intention, by definition, means an aim that guides action; an objective. Imagine an intention as a stake in the mystical ground, placed there with an initial thought, which then becomes words, which then become actions. Intentions manifest into creation through thoughts, words and actions.

Imagine an intention which is based on the highest possible good for you and those around you. Now imagine an intention which is based on self-importance, greed and power. The energy behind the intention determines the outcome. Look at our corporate world today and think about which intention is more predominant. Consider the latter, then ask the question, “How is that working for society as a whole?”

What happens when we look beyond that which we can see? When we think about creating a new business, for example, we might initially conceive of this dream as a job we create so we do not have to work for someone else anymore. It could be that simple. But is it? What is the intention behind the intention? This is the energy that will either propel the intention forward or draw it backward.

To take this in another direction, imagine an intention which is backed by the thought, “I can succeed because I know I am self-empowered with limitless potential.” Now imagine an intention built on the energy of an old self-limiting belief that says, “I cannot because …” These hidden thoughts, the old story, reverberate in our brains, potentially limiting infinite possibilities.

Listen to your thoughts. What kind of story are they telling you?

Focus on these thoughts when considering the intention behind the intention. Imagine the realm of positive thoughts as access to your soul’s intentions, and the realm of the negative as accessing your ego’s intentions.

It is easy to get off course when we are manifesting a dream. It is easy to forget our motivation for doing something. That is why discovering, uncovering and “remembering” the soul’s intention, in every thought, every word and every action is deeply important to the success of our dreams. There is so much power behind intention when we get to its deepest level.

Next time you are in the midst of manifesting a dream, consider your intention. Once you have it in mind, look beyond that which you can see and discover the intention behind the intention. If you do not like what you see or what you hear, think again — and re-create the infinite possibility. Remember it is your soul’s intention.
