I is for Intention

It's week nine of Alphabe-Thursday!

I is for Intention...

Intention is all about living a conscious life. Rather than just letting things happen we can choose to set a positive intention and then go about our day with purpose. It is our intentions that bring meaning into everything we do.

Humans are powerful, creative beings who have the ability to use imagination and intention to manifest reality. When we set our intentions and visualize the life we want for ourselves we can create it. Intention guides our actions so we can design a life of purpose and fulfilment.

An intention is the focussing of our attention on a particular aim or goal. We can set a simple intention every morning to enjoy the day to the full. Or we can set much grander intentions for our lives as a whole - such as achieving success, finding inner peace or embracing love. An intention is a positive affirmation that keeps us on the path we've chosen.

A lot of people float through life never becoming aware enough to realise just how much power they possess. Whatever we focus on becomes our reality. We are all a product of our own beliefs and intentions. If you think the world is out to get you that will be your experience. On the other hand - if you imagine the world to be one full of compassion, love and all manner of magnificient things that will be the reality of your life. We all have the power of intention so why not intend for the world to be a happy place? Consciously choosing to live a joyful and loving life will bring us all infinite abundance.

Meaning, purpose and joy can all be found through intention. Decide what you want your life to look like, imagine the grandest reality you want to experience and then set the intention that you will, at any given moment, consciously choose this reality. It really is within your power.


  1. Intention is SO good! I do not like hearing people say... "Oh there is nothing they can do about their life" Thanks for sharing.
    have a great weekend.

  2. I agree entirely. There is always a choice, even if that choice is only to endure what we have to with grace.

  3. Very thoughtful blog♫ Here's my effort for I:

  4. I love this because intention can be to do small things, too. They don't have to be grand.

  5. Beautifully written! Thanks for a great post - I try hard to live my life that way, but sometimes I need a little reminder, so thanks :)

  6. As you you sow.

    I love this philosophy of life.
