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. It is there that 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:

[sociallocker id=”5862″]1. Centre yourself in restful awareness. This means entering the gap or the 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. Make a list of your goals and look at it before you start your meditation. You are releasing your intentions into the fertile ground of pure potentiality, and they will bloom when the season is right. You don’t want to dig up the seeds to see if they are growing, or get attached to the way that they come forth. Simply release your intentions into the gap.

3. Remain centred 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, even without knowing the timing or the details of what will happen.

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, while detachment is based on the unquestioning belief in the power of your true Self. Enjoy every moment of your life, even if you don’t know the outcome.

5. Let the universe handle the details. Your focused intentions set the infinite organizing power of the universe in motion. Trust that infinite organizing power to orchestrate the complete fulfilment of your desires.[/sociallocker]

Finally, we offer you these beautiful words from the Vedic seer:

“I am the immeasurable potential of all that was, is, and will be, 
and my desires are like seeds left in the ground: they wait for the right season 
and then spontaneously manifest into beautiful flowers and mighty trees,
into enchanted gardens and majestic forests.”
