From my experience, one must have a clear intention as to how one would like one's reality to be designed. We all have this power to create our reality. You could say that you are dusting your connecting link to intent, you are creating greater clarity and in that clarity, you attract exactly what you desire. Here is an example of an intention I use:
"To my guides and all of those who are assisting me in my evolutionary journey on Earth: It 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 things 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."
This intention brings me clarity and helps me to create a reality of my own volition, not one that others set up for me.
I don't know how clear most people are and I would hazard to guess from what I see in the world that they are not very clear and do not use their intention with great clarity at all. I encourage becoming clear in the use of one's intent because it is the greatest ability we as humans have to live a life of great potential as we were meant to live.
I encourage all who are reading this to delve into their ability to use intent. It's a powerful tool and one meant to be used for our greater good.
