THE POWER OF INTENTIONS, HOW IT WORKS?
“In the universe, there is an immeasurable, indescribable force which shamans call intent, and absolutely everything that exists in the entire cosmos is attached to intent by a connecting link.” Carlos Castaneda
Intention is very powerful and is the starting point of every dream. People can achieve amazing things when they are animated by intention or purpose. Indeed, to activate this power requires that the individual connects with his natural self and get rid of ego.
This concept exists in China with the philosopher Lao Tzu, known as the father of Taoism but also in India with the Vedic text known as the Upanishads.
Philosophy is pure and simple:
“The law of attraction is this: You don’t attract what you want. You attract what you are.”
“You are what your deepest desire is. As your desire is, so is your intention. As your intention is, so is your will. As your will is, so is your deed. As your deed is, so is your destiny.”
· How do you activate this powerful field of energy?
Deepak Chopra identifies 5 steps to help you use intentions with your meditation practice:
1. Write down your intentions Chopra says it is even better to write them down with a pen and paper because it is believed that the physical act of writing gives power.
2. Write affirmative and effective intentions. Think and write what you want, Not what you don’t want.
3. Keep focused. Refuse to be influenced by other people’s doubts or criticisms.
4. Surrender your intentions to the universe. After you set an intention, let it go—simply stop thinking about it …
5. Be open to infinite possibilities. Today could be the day your life changes forever. Stay open to the possibilities. Sometimes they are hiding in the most unexpected places. But that’s the fascinating thing about the process. Staying open to possibilities keeps life exciting!

· Follow Lao Tzu ‘s four rules for living.
Lao Tzu’s four cardinal virtues represent the effective way to reconnect to your original nature. The ancient Chinese master said that living and practicing these teachings can open you to higher wisdom and greater happiness.
”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.”
