Create Your Intentions
From where you are at right now, think of one goal (or resolution) you have been ruminating on for 2018. For example, a goal could be, Create A Budget. Often, the reason goals or resolutions are not fulfilled is because there is no heart behind saying “I want to create a budget.” Finding the connection to our goals in a deeper way is the magic to manifesting. In this way, let’s turn Create A Budget into an intention. So instead, we say, “In 2018 I want to understand the flow of money in and out of my life. I want to know where I spend money each month and how that relates to how much money I am creating. It is important to me to understand the flow of money in my life and how I can work with it to help me support my future self and ultimately create affluence.” Suddenly the goal of Create A Budget turns into shifting into a lifestyle that has some purpose, a feeling behind it connecting us to a life event we want to experience. We have just given that goal turned into an intention the opportunity to become an energetic experience. The Universe’s language is energy. Through the work of intentions, you have just created a conversation with the universe about what you would like to conspire to manifest!
You are not out of the woods by just having this wonderful imaginative event from “Create A Budget”. You have to be disciplined to stay on track and take the steps necessary to match the energy you are conspiring to create. Universal energy will be there to support you if you continue to show up in union with your intention.
2018 is asking you to create these intentions now. Get the energy for the year rolling in the direction you are seeking. Actively co-create.
In Part 3 we will identify how shaping resistance into empowerment through the use of intentions will act as themes through 2018.
