A powerful tool that is at each of our disposal is the immense power of our intent that is our way of creating the reality we desire. You must have a clear intention (that's why it's important to clear your connecting link to intent) as to how you want your reality to be designed.
I have found that it's productive to use affirmations to exercise intent. Here is one I have used and found very helpful. Try it for yourself:
"To my guides and all those assisting me in my evolutionary journey on Earth: It is my intention that I be successful. It is my intention that I always be safe in all things that I do. It is my intention that I receive love and give love in all that I do. It is my intention that I have a good time and that I be provided for with prosperity according to my needs. It is my intention that I not become overly enamored of the material world."
Use this mantra every day and you will manifest these intentions in your life and also realize the power of intent. Like anything else, it must be exercised.
When combined with wisdom, love, compassion and detachment, the force of intent is unstoppable!
If you are not already using it implicitly or explicitly, try your conscious use of intent on for size!!!
