What Are Your Intentions Toward Yourself?

I’ve been thinking about the power of intention. I use it as part of my morning prayer cycle. I put out to the Universe what I want to get done in the day and commonly that’s exactly what happens.

Stating something has an interesting twist to it. It can make that something real or it can take away its power.
That’s the general idea behind talking about something in order to feel better. Life’s problems aren’t so quite so bad once the words are out.
It’s still intention, though. You intend to feel better by talking, so therefore, you are. You made it real. You switched the power around and put it to work for you.

This brings me to my point. What are your intentions toward yourself? What needs some power behind it?
Here are a few ideas to get you going. Feel free to use them as is or adapt them for your own needs

I intend to eat well.
I intend to exercise.
I intend to be published.
I intend to be successful.
I intend to be my own woman and live the life I want.
I intend to be happy.
I intend to stand up for myself.

Go ahead. Make a commitment to yourself and put it out to a Higher Power whether that is God, the Universe, or Fuzzy Bunny.
Make it real and watch it work.

Phew! Would it be greedy to want all of them?

Not greedy at all, Dawn. And you've got a head start, too.

I hope Fuzzy Bunny is listening, because I have a lot of Intentions!

(Just not a whole lot of execution, at least on #3 or #4...).

Great list, Leah. Now I intend to eat some dinner and head to bed early tonight. Because I intend to get a full night's sleep!
