There was much discussion about the Power of Intentions during the Reiki training I attended last weekend. Certainly many books have been written on the subject as well.

As I was cleaning out the papers on my desk - I found this from a newsletter sent by The Chopra Center in January:

Intentions are the seeds of consciousness, or spirit. They have infinite organizing power and orchestrate everything that manifests in the universe. Like real seeds, intentions can't grow if you hold on to them.

Letting go is planting them in the depths of your consciousness where they get the nourishment and support to grow and develop. The Law of Intention and Desire lays out the five steps for cultivating and fulfilling your intentions with effortless ease:

1. Center yourself in restful awareness. This means entering the gap or silent space between thoughts - that boundless, eternal field that is your essential Being. The most powerful way to enter the silence is through a regular meditation practice.

2. When you are established in restful awareness, release your intentions and desires... You are releasing your intentions into the fertile grown of pure potentiality, and they will bloom when the season is right...

3. Remain centered in your awareness of your true Self and your connection to the field of pure potentiality. Refuse to be influenced by other people's doubts or criticisms. Your true Self knows that everything is all right and will be all right...

4. Let go of your attachment to the outcome. Relinquish your rigid attachment to a specific result and live in the wisdom of uncertainty. Attachment is based on fear and insecurity.

5. Let the universe handle the details. Your focused intentions sets the infinite organizing power of the universe in motion. Trust that infinite organizing power to orchestrate the complete fulfillment of your desires.

Truly, lessons for now and all times...
