Today I woke up to the sound of my dreams coming true.
Sun is shining, blessings are pouring down from the skies, angels are singing, conveying gracefully the hidden treasures and spiritual pleasures of the Universe to those blessed with enlightened spirits.
Hello, my lovely audience!
It’s Sunday, my favorite holy day and I have decided to offer another gift of knowledge to the Chosen Ones – those with golden hearts, open ears and a divine calling shaping their virtuous destiny.
“Some say if you want success surround yourself with successful people. I say if you want true and lasting success surround yourself with people of integrity.” concludes Charles F. Glassman in Brain Drain The Breakthrough That Will Change Your Life; however, “A man’s dignity isn’t measured by the people he has around him when he’s at the peak of his success, but by his ability not to forget those who helped him when his need was greatest.” ― Paulo Coelho, The Winner Stands Alone
“The young all have the same dream: to save the world.
Some quickly forget this dream, convinced that there are more important things for to do, like having a family, earning money, traveling, and learning a foreign language.
Others, though, decide that it really is possible to make a difference in society and to shape the world we will hand on to future generations.”

What is Intention?
According to Merriam Webster, Intention is a multi-layered concept which refers to various symbolic meanings, such as the determination to act in a certain way (resolve); import, significance; what one intends to do or bring about; the object for which a prayer, mass, or pious act is offered; the process or manner of healing of incised wounds; a concept considered as the product of attention directed to an object of knowledge, while “intentions” (plural) define a purpose with respect to marriage.
In order to fully clarify the astonishing symbolistic palette of Intention nuances under its full spectrum of power, please be aware that Intention is the underlying cause of Creation – the force, whether conscious or non-conscious, which determines the focus of awareness and attention, not necessarily the object of desire. Placing the attention in a particular direction or channeling it towards a particular objects, directs the energy in that direction – anytime a clear intentionality is stated and a step towards the Intention is taken, the Universe responds in terms of Energy, Frequency and Vibration and brings into life circumstances which allow the manifestation of thought in a way supported by the environment in which the Intention was initially created.
If the acts following the predefined Intention are opposed to it, the Universe responds accordingly by fragmenting the creative energy and dissipating the creative power, therefore it is vital to become clean, clear and focused on the path of co-Creation, taking into consideration the underlying depth of our non-conscious programming must be brought to Life into the conscious in order to create the truthful longing within the Heart.
“We are all gardeners, planting seeds of intention and watering them with attention in every moment of every day.”
― Cristen Rodgers
Based on the divine principles of the Law of Attraction, if life is perceived from an integrated wholeness and understanding within the being, and as long as the belief system is in mutual support and does not oppose the construct of the being, the Creative power available to humans is optimized.
Taking into consideration one of the essential concepts of creativity is that actions follow thoughts, any action taken in a precise direction reinforces the belief behind, the one chosen to act upon. Anytime an act is done not supporting the Intentional belief, that precise belief is eroded and robbed off the creative energy. However, the amount of energy which is channeled towards the belief lies on a spectrum – at one end, the belief not acted upon remains in the psyche as pure potential, while, at the other end, lies the decision to invests all available energy when life presents the opportunity to act on a belief.
The door to the unlimited creativity potential is trully opened as long as the beliefs and the actions taken in regards to fulfilling the intention are fully in line and consistent with the personal Truth, Life itself beginning to change in the desired direction by consolidating personal power and releasing unlimited inspiration. Each human needs to become impeccable and committed in ensuring the actions follow the most intimate desires – each experience offers the opportunity to approach, understand and define a person or to deny and reject, creating the Future in the mold of obsolete past programming.

“A glint of intention initiates the process of creation.”
― Debasish Mridha
“When your intention is clear, so is the way.”
― Alan Cohen
“Everything we do in life is creating everything that’s coming. Our thoughts and our words become things manifest in our lives. Each time my Master sent me to the right place at the right time.”

The Power of Intention
The critical understanding behind mastering gracefully this undeniable power of the Universe available to human beings is the conscious or non-conscious intention behind the focus, not necessarily the “object” of the attention. An intimate exploration of the non-conscious intentions permits the recognition of Who and What is pulled into the personal environment for that might definitely be a clue to realizing what the initial nonconscious intention is.
If both desire and the longing of the heart fuel Creation and causes the recreation of personal perception of the world in order to satisfy the initial longing, this means the energy is channeling and propelling the purpose into Creation. Desire itself lacks the power of manifestation unless there is an intention which exists to fulfill that precise desire. In this regards, desire is to exercise the masculine aspect of being, while the surrender to the desire and energy flow giving rise to fulfillment is the feminine aspect of Creation. The intentions and desires are involved in a sacred dance with each other – the intention is the masculine aspect to trust forward into Creation to manifest itself and the feminine is what supports the Creation and the ability to create. Nevertheless, it is the feminine that is reflected in belief, the polarity which entices to thrust and obtain the desired outcome.
In this solemn context, please be reminded of the Creation Myth tacked in Divine Complements blog post.

“Successful commitment occurs when your stated intentions are stronger than your hidden intentions, or when you consciously reconcile the conflict.”

“When you have the right intention, the right opportunity will open the door.”

Dr. Wayne Dyer, affectionately known as the “father of motivation” by his fans, believes the Power of Intention is the underlying concept fueling The Law of Attraction: “The law of attraction is this: You don’t attract what you want. You attract what you are.” “Most people’s mistake in trying to apply the law of attraction is they want things; they demand things. But God doesn’t work that way,” continues Dyer. “It’s all about allowing.”
“All great spiritual masters are teaching what we’re talking about,” says Dyer. “They’re teaching forgiveness. They’re teaching kindness. They’re teaching love. They’re not teaching wanting. They’re not teaching greed.”
Furthermore, Dyer refers to the Tao Te Ching, written by Lao Tzu in regards to the Power of Intention. “He says in there, 2,500 years ago, if you live from these virtues, then all that you could ever need or want could be provided for you.”
“This is called the Hua Hu Ching, written by Lao Tzu. It’s the unknown teachings of Lao Tzu. Number 51 says, ‘Those who want to know the truth of the universe should practice the four cardinal virtues. The first is reverence for all of life. This manifests as unconditional love and respect for oneself and all other beings. The second is natural sincerity. This manifests as honesty, simplicity and faithfulness. The third is gentleness, which manifests as kindness, consideration for others and sensitivity to spiritual truth. The fourth is supportiveness. This manifests as service to others without expectation of reward.”
How to Activate the Connection with The Power of Intention
Dr. Wayne Dyer indicates that the process takes place in four stages:
Discipline – building strong habits and realign with your body. Do the things you know you should do (i.e. exercise, eat well etc). Live with integrity to your ideal self!
Wisdom – combine wisdom with discipline as you harmonise your mind (thoughts/intellect) and feelings with the work of your body.
Love – loving what you do and doing what you love.
Surrender – this is the place of intention – your body and your mind are no longer running the show.
“Perfection does not mean errorless . Real perfection starts with real intention and ends with delivery, all driven by seeking knowledge, trial & error and investing emotions. Whatever delivered after that is perfect.”

Following are the seven faces of the Power of Intention according to Dr. Wayne Dyer:
1. Be Creative
Trusting the divine purpose and having an attitude of unbending intent in daily thoughts and activities.
Staying creative means giving form to personal intentions.
2. Be Kind
All that is manifested is brought here to thrive. It takes kindly power to want what it creates to thrive and multiply.
It’s through giving that one receives.
This requires kindness toward yourself, others and all Life forms.
3. Be Love
If intended out of love, one must be love in order to intend.
Love is co-operation rather than competition.
Love is the force behind the will of God (it’s the spiritual vibration that carries divine intentions from formless to concrete expression).
4. Be Beauty
As one awakens to the divine nature, you’ll begin to appreciate beauty in everything one sees, touches and experiences.
Life, truth and beauty are all symbols for the same thing, as aspect of the God-force.
5. Be Ever-Expansive
The all-emerging universal force that intended one into beingness and commences all life is always growing and perpetually expanding.
By being is an ever-expanding state and growing intellectually, emotionally and spiritually, you are identifying with the universal mind.
6. Be Abundant
Intention is endlessly abundant.
There is no scarcity in the universal invisible world of Spirit.
One becomes what One thinks about.
It is all about having an inner picture of abundance, thinking in unlimited ways, being open to the guidance that intention provides when you are in a state of rapport with it – and then being in a state of ecstatic gratitude and awe for how this whole thing works.
7. Be Receptive
The universal mind is ready to respond to anyone who recognises their true relationship with it.
The advice is to stay connected and trust the manifestation of all that this power is capable of offering.
The nature of the universal mind is peaceful.
“If you are pure in intention and in alignment with beauty and love, in body and mind, the highest levels of your spiritual self will subsume your weaknesses.”
