“The attempt must be made; the outcome is irrelevant. Right action is a pale material reflection of the divine, but reflection it is, nonetheless. Define your goal and exert reason to accomplish it by virtuous action; success or failure is secondary..” – Iain Pears, The Dream of Scipio
Feng Shui without intention is just moving stuff around.
Arranging things is important to enhancing and balancing the chi energy in your home or workspace. But to get the best results you must add an intention.
What is an intention? A wish, a dream, a goal, a prayer? It is all of these. But to make your intention come true you must include action to make your goal happen. No passive wishing. You must add your own energy into the mix. With your intention, think of the steps you need to take to make your dream come true. And then start doing them.
Intentions are faith plus action plus letting go. Writing down your intention is one step.
If you want to meet your Prince or Princess Charming, you are not going to find him or her sitting at home. (Unless you have a crush on your UPS person.)
- Get out and meet people,
- Get involved in organizations,
- Do things you enjoy.
I can’t think of a better romance attraction magnet than enjoying yourself.
If your intention is about business or career success:
- What steps do you need to take to make it happen?
- What do you need to learn?
- Who do you need to meet?
Get out there make your dream come true, then you will bump into Good Luck.
I teach my clients a beautiful intention ritual to help them clarify their goals, the steps toward that goal and how to offer this to God/The Universe.
The essence of this ritual is:
- Have faith in your intention,
- Be active in making it happen – use your energy to create more energy
- Let go of the outcome – this is easier said than done, but important
Do your best. Live and act in the moment. Trust that what you need will come to you.
And be mindful of your blessings with gratitude. Read this post about The Seed of Happiness.
