Intentions of the Soulful Heart

heartTraditionally, the beginning of the New Year brings our attention to create change or look into other possibilities to enhance our lives. Are you someone who consciously thinks about making new plans to make this year more prosperous, more fulfilling, or simply more enjoyable? And how would you go about doing so? Setting intentions, making resolutions, something else? There is no right or wrong in how you go about it; it is simply about what you feel called to do, and the commitment you make to yourself to bring your dreams and aspirations into your reality. And of course, allowing the process to unfold by practicing patience.

Whatever that something is, in order to manifest what we really want, we may need to know what it looks like, smells like, taste like, sounds like, and how it feels…and all without limiting ourselves or the outcome. From a spiritual perspective, we are encouraged to use our creative imagination in order to see ourselves living and BEING that dream, aspiration or anything else we may want to manifest. For if we can see it, we can BE it. Remember, everything we can imagine and more can come into our reality through our thoughtful Intentions, imaginations and visualizations. How so? Simply stated, Thoughts are Things…and again, what we can see, we can BE.  I believe that every thought is an Intention whether we have entertained it on a conscious or subconscious level. We are invited therefore to be mindful of our thoughts and create focused and mindful Intentions. It begins in Mind…or does it?

We will begin to feel guided. We will begin to feel this from the depths of our Soul or Soulfulness…as we are Souls. We will begin to realize that perhaps some if not all of our dreams were placed in our hearts before we were born into our physicality…and that we are merely remembering them. We will begin to understand that we came here to this level of our expression with a Divine Purpose that serves our own evolution and the evolution of us all.

It is from our Soul Level that we will feel those divine urges to move in directions we may not even recognize are a part of who we are. This is because we can only understand our lives from a sense of who we “think” we are. This sense of self comes from what we have been conditioned to be from the time we were conceived and born into our physicality. There is no other way to grow into our wholeness. And there is no right or wrong. That is our life in our humanity. Remember, we are spiritual beings having a human experience. We are therefore subject to all the memes, traditions and environmental influences that create our existence.  It is a natural process of our growth.

It is only when we begin to feel that there is more, that we will continue to remember the truth of who we really are by being more open to infinite possibilities. And we will begin to set mindful Intentions that are in harmony with our truth. We will begin to integrate the Intentions of our Mind with the Soulful calling of our Heart. We are all on a journey of remembering who we are on a Soul Level and to express ourselves in alignment with what we have come here to do and share with other Souls.

We have been given clues into our individual Authenticity and perhaps our ultimate purpose from the time we were young children. We need only to1325715-bigthumbnailabstraqctdesktopnexus look back and remember the things we enjoyed doing. For example, did you like to draw, paint, or make things out of clay? Did you like to sing, dance, or play an instrument? Did you ever pretend to be a teacher? Did you like to write? Did you like sports? What were you particularly good at? What were you really passionate about? What did you want to be when you grew up?  Did you have a vivid imagination?  And if so, where did your imagination take you?

Do any of the things mentioned above resonate with you? Are you doing any of these things in some form today? Or did any of these things lead you into something greater than you may have imagined for yourself? Does it bring you joy?  Do others benefit from what you are doing? I can tell you from personal experience that I never would have imagined I would be doing what I am involved in today. For one thing, who knew that my pretending to be a teacher would lead me in the direction of ultimately becoming a Minister? Or the fact that I felt a deep calling as a child to go to church even though my parents had never taken us. I did not even have a clue what church was, yet felt a need to be close to something I thought was there but could not articulate. I simply remembered loving the beautiful sounds of the church bells on Sunday mornings. It resonated with me somehow.  It inspired me to ask my parents why we did not go to church.  I do not really remember the answer, yet recall being invited to attend a church service shortly thereafter and continued going for years to follow. Isn’t it interesting how Spirit works in our lives? Perhaps I set an Intention without realizing it?  Or was this something that was imbedded within my Soulfulness?  How about you…do you have memories of being called to something you did not understand?

Life is an Intention in itself, and it moves in and through each one of us. We are Life. We are the Intention. And when we learn to live on purpose, we will be shown how to direct our lives from the depths of our beingness. We will begin to see Magic. We will begin to see things from a greater perspective. We will begin to see how Life unfolds through our heartfelt and mindful Intentions. We are simply encouraged to get to know who we are Authentically and allow ourselves to be gently guided to the Intentions of our Soulful Heart.

And we can begin to move forward being grateful for every beautiful aspect of who we are in this meaningful moment. For the energy of Gratitude alone is a Powerful Intention. And again, let us all be open and receptive to Life itself for it will serve us well. And remember, we are always supported by a most Loving Universe. Namaste’.

Thank you for allowing me to share my thoughts with you.

In Love, Light and Divine Inspiration,
