Physician and author, Deepak Chopra says: “Everything that happens in the Universe begins with intention. An intention is a directed impulse of consciousness that contains the seed form of that which you aim to create."
We often think of setting intention in terms of the big things in life – a bit like goal-setting. But you can use the power of intention every day to make life flow more smoothly. For example, you can set an intention when you wake up about how you want to feel today or how you’d like your day to flow. Perhaps you have a big and difficult project that you’re about to undertake, you can set an intention that it will go in the easiest, smoothest and most positive way possible.
Let’s say you have to call customer service or technical support for some problem you’re experiencing – you can set the intention beforehand that you will speak to someone who is positive, knowledgeable and helpful who will help you resolve your issue easily and efficiently. The energy you are putting into the exchange will then be much more positive and will help you to receive positive energy back.
Like everything, this takes practice. The more you do it, the better you’ll get.
