Live thoughtfully, with intention

When we talk about setting intentions, it is often equated with planting a seed. It starts with an idea of something you want to happen in your life. When setting your intention, you are exploring your life path to find a way to manifest what you desire in the future. This is where people often get discouraged. Because of advanced technology and intricate systems that have been created over years, we have become accustomed to instant gratification. Time is very relative when beginning this quest. You want results quickly, but if you want quality, expect to invest your time. 

So, all well and good, but what do you have to do? I’d love to tell you that you have to look up at the first star you see tonight and wish with all your might. But, you know that old saying, “be careful what you wish for, because you’ll get it”. What follows are elemental steps to setting intentions so that they manifest a future that you want to happen in your life.

  • 1. First comes the AIR we breathe: recognize the seed, be very clear about what it is you want to happen, think on it in general terms (such as I want to experience true love). 

  1. 2. Then, plant the seed into the EARTH, think about the physical details of the person or object (true love with a person who has these traits). It is important to try to get as specific as possible, because you may find what you want, but then you learn that it wasn’t exactly what you intended. 

  1. 3. Next, WATER the seed; focus on what you will feel like when what you wanted to happen is happening, and then what you will feel like when it changes or ends. This is very important, because it will change as time passes and could be joyful or painful. 

  1. 4. The last step is a process that takes time: to bring energy to your intention, give it the right amount of Sun (FIRE) and recognize it. 

Continuing the metaphor, you may have neglected your plant (intention) and now you’re back and there are a bunch of plants growing around it so now you’re not sure which one is it. Nurturing your intention gives it energy and helps bring it into being.

When we live thoughtfully, we can experience an extraordinary life path.
