Getting Results With Intention

I really like what you said about intention in Reminders to Use Intention and the way you said it. I need (intend) to remember to do it and I need (intend) to drop my old story that I don't have a good track record with my attempts.

If I may suggest...you can just decide to drop your old story that you don't have a good track record with your attempts and intend from this moment forward you will have good results. Start with small intentions. You know there are days when I feel like I just can't create anything! And so I go back to, "OK. I am going to create a cup of tea..." and I go in the kitchen and make a cup of tea. Intention fulfilled! The principle works. We just need to practice it. And a lot of what makes our intentions not manifest is simply our own counterintentions.

I've found that my ability to intend bigger things increased dramatically when I started writing down my successes. Maybe you could look back to times where you DID create something with your intention and write it down. As you start collecting your own stories of success with intention, you'll see that you can and ARE doing it!

The story I seem to be running is that I can't remember to intend. I am wondering how you first developed the habit? I am thinking of starting tomorrow with intending to intend 10 things. Oops, rewrite. Tomorrow I will remember to intend 10 things!

I'm still working on remembering to intend! Things occur in one of two ways: 1) you intend them as a spirit in present time or 2) some old intention you made from the past kicks in as a default.

Now, over time, I've made a lot of GOOD intentions that kick in as default if I have no new intention, but there are still some old ones I need to replace.

My suggestion to you about how to remember to intend is to place signs in conspicuous places that just say "intend". I put a post-it note with intentions I want to remember right on my computer. Right now I have one that says "I am the originator of my life. I put it in motion." Now this is true whether I intend it or not, but it's something I want to always remember and I still sometimes forget.

Also, instead of intending 10 things, just start with one. Just make an intention to use intention once a day. Keep a calendar by your bed where you can see it and at the end of each day, give yourself a gold star if you remembered to use intention. And make your intentions easy. Start with "I intend to fix a delicious dinner" and then fix the dinner and acknowledge yourself for having done that. Then move to two intentions per day.

Gaining spirit skills takes practice, but like anything else, "Practice makes perfect."
