Intending in the moment

As of late I've really been learning a few lessons quite intensely. One is to slow down and be present to my own heart and body in each moment. In that space, I've been tasked to watch my thoughts diligently and make sure I am aiming them towards what I want to create in any given moment.

When you hold an intention to have something in your life, it need not take you out of the present. That confused me for years. If I'm creating the future, how on earth can I be in the present. Well, I figured it out with the help of my friends up above...

When you intend something you want in the future, you are simply acknowledging what is truly in your heart NOW, in this moment :)

I have been intending a joyous holiday season rich with experience, even with all I have to do! I'm making homemade gifts for friends, working on two books, seeing clients, and all the usual baking and mailing cookies, etc... I had only one free weekend coming up between now and Christmas so if you can imagine when my friend Marla wrote to see if I was interested in being crazy and attending a healing seminar in San Francisco this weekend my mind said, "No way. Sounds fun, but I can't swing it."

I woke up in the middle of the following night with the LOUD guidance to go. After all, I've been intending blissful well being and the ability to share this with others. I've been intending a season rich with experience and friendship. I've been intending a little newness in my life. And here it was handed on a silver platter. My parents even sent me a Christmas check which covers the cost. THAT was a total surprise! So I listened to that crazy, insane, urge inside of me at 3am, booked flight, booked a hotel room, and registered for the seminar. I had to reschedule a few clients (God Bless Them) and miraculously it worked out that I could get them in sooner, due to other cancellations.

I am constantly amazed at how God works when we REALLY own the urges in our own heart. I haven't been obsessed with the future, but when something I want pops into my thoughts or feelings, I take time and acknowledge it. I say a simple statement with all the power of my being, "I INTEND AND CREATE whatever... I ASK GOD TO REMOVE ANY OBSTACLES IN MY OWN HEART... I INTEND THAT ALL GUIDANCE BE SO CLEAR I CAN'T MISS IT." Try it, it works!
