How to Get What You Want – Setting Intentions
Ancient wisdom talks about the law of attraction and it is mentioned in holy writings, including the bible and the Qur’an. Jesus said “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” – Matthew 7:7 and the Qu’ran says, “God promises you … abundance” Quran 2:268 Surat Al-Baqara
In his book The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, Deepak Chopra suggests writing a list of intentions and reading that list first thing in the morning, before bed and before meditating. He also recommends carrying that list around with you. I started doing this in November 2011 and within a few months I had manifest a flat, a car, a great job with a high salary, a relationship with someone that I believe to be my soulmate and an abundance of other things.
Once you have set the intentions, release them into the universe and trust. You don’t need to know how your intentions will manifest and the more detached you are from the outcome, the quicker it will come. I will cover detachment in my next blog post.
Exercise: write your own personal list of intentions. Read it first thing in the morning, before bed and before meditating. Carry a copy around with you.
