Is Your Attention on Your Intention?

As the sun begins to set on 2012 and rise on 2013, what new intentions do you aspire to cultivate? As the universe begins its journey in shifting our focus, energy, and aspirations- what intentions will you set? What goals will manifest those intentions and what will you create?

Intentions: Intentions are states of being and or authentic desires. Maybe your intention is to become more peaceful, grateful, joyous, loving, successful, healthy or wealthy. Ultimately, intentions can be easily defined as our high ideals-ideals of which are usually at the root of our motivation for any specific goal.  

Setting an intention, at least according to Buddhist teachings, is quite different then goal setting. Intentions are focused on how you are being in the present moment. Your attention is on the ever present “now”.  In retrospect, most of us don’t focus on goals like a new relationship and or more money simply for the sake of those things themselves. We desire and aspire these goals because of what we believe we will experience by having them in our lives. Thus, if we begin our goal with an intention, we can get right to the source of what we truly want. Intentions are the core and the magic of all our goals, desires and aspirations.

Goals: Goals are effective, powerful, specific and measurable. We want to be able to track our progress and know for sure if we are reaching our goals. Goals should not be filled with stress, pressure, shame or guilt. Goals must be specific, measurable, action based, realistic and timely. This makes them SMART and more readily available for direct manifestation! Remember, simply take your intentions and focus them on tangible outcomes in the world-these outcomes are your goals.

Create: Create action-oriented practices that support manifesting your goals and intentions. Challenge yourself to create action plans that inspire YOU, that help connect YOU to your goals and ultimately fulfill your brightest intentions are essential daily, weekly and monthly in efforts for success and fulfillment.  The creation process is fuel for the flames- it ignites your inner light!

Therefore, I challenge you today to simply start by setting an intention. Make it clear to yourself. Redefine what it means to be serious about the present moment (NOW), your goals, your actions, your dreams- essentially YOUR future!
