Dear Eden, When you write about intent, I am confused. What is intent, what does it mean? Thank you for clarifying! X.
Intent, or will, is the most important thing you can learn in this lifetime. In any situation, your intent is always what will determine the outcome. When you are clear about what you want, and do not dwell on that which you do not want, you will always attract that which you do want. There is no difference between what you intend, or will, and what you receive. That which you fight against, you only make stronger: far better then, for you to focus your intent and will upon that which you do want. Know what you want, and then allow yourself to receive it. Expect to receive it.
Do not worry about how to make what you want happen. Just be clear in your heart about what you desire, and trust that the universe will help you manifest that desire in an easy and expedient manner.
Good books for to read about this are “You can heal your life” by Louise Hay and the “The Amazing Power of Deliberate Intent” by Esther and Jerry Hicks and Abraham.
Do not focus on that which makes you unhappy. Do not participate in conversations which make you unhappy or fear-full. Change the direction of your thoughts and words towards the light, and the dark will recede. Do only those things that make you feel joy, love, and fulfillment, and you will soon see the world around you begin to change to meet your desires, and to bring you more joy.
