What’s so funny is that I teach this all the time. I mean ALL the time.
This is one of the guiding principles of my life. Intention.
Intention is basically an aim or purpose, based on how you want to FEEL rather than what you want to get.
At first, I thought it such a simple question – of COURSE I know what my intention is, I teach this stuff.
But, when I thought about it, I realized that I don’t have an intention currently.
In fact, I haven’t had a guiding intention for a while now.
Why? Well, I looked back and I couldn’t believe what had happened. I created a life where all my previous intentions had come true. In short, I had “made” it.
I am with the Love of my Life – Jenna. The Daily Love is real and global. I make a living doing what I Love. I had lived in my “dream” apartment, which turned out to be a nightmare.
It was all there.
I don’t know what my current intention is. I’m out beyond the vision that I had seen for myself, I didn’t realize that life could be this cool when you over deliver and dedicate yourself to an outcome every single day.
So, I get to really think about it. What is my intention? What is my goal?
I think I am going to live in the curious mystery of that question for a while. I don’t want an ego goal. I don’t want a goal to set out to be the most “significant” person in my field, I don’t want a goal just to have a goal.
I am going to take some time and really ask – what do I want, why do I want it and most importantly – how do I want to FEEL when I get there?
I don’t want to chase empty goals. And I don’t really care too much for being on the top of any pile. I want to create change. I want to inspire folks. I want to bring practical and experiential modalities to the world to help uplift humanity.
Maybe, just maybe I can help someone break free from their hypnosis of fear and realize that they have a huge gift to give to the world.
I want all my intentions and goals from now on to be based in service and contribution and Love.
Do you have an intention for your life? I’d love to know. Maybe I can borrow it! (hehe).
