Tomorrow will turn the Calendar to a new year. There are only 3 real steps to reaching any intention regardless whether it is 2012 or 2015. People set New Year’s Resolutions with good intent and then allow daily busyness to overtake them before the first month is over. Not the best of plans for desired outcome.
As Abraham says, you set the goal or intention every day of what you would like to see in your life when you recognize those things that you don’t want. The problem with resolutions, we tie a time-line into them and if we start running out of time for the project to be complete we go into resistance.
Resistance to not having what you want is the very reason it won’t show up. What is really needed is to find a way to be comfortable with all that is on a daily or more effectively, moment by moment basis. Since we are not used to doing that, even being comfortable with what is on a weekly basis will help you to become more effective in becoming more comfortable in the moment.
So here are the Three(3) Steps to Reaching Your Intentions for 2012.
1. Pretty obvious, set the intention of becoming the person who is capable of having what it is you want. Having a new home isn’t going to be enjoyable if you are not capable of coping with what is required to keep it. Heat, Hydro, Water, Grass, Snow, Mortgage, Insurance, Taxes, Maintenance…. the list goes on. If that scares you, keep renting.
2. Define the desire with the feeling it will bring you, get immersed in the comfort and joy it will bring. If you are writing it down, define the characteristics and get an emotional high about it! Wouldn’t it be nice to……
3. Allow it to happen. It won’t happen until you do. If you are not able to focus on a daily basis of what it will be like to have that which you want, let it go. Stop trying to force it to happen. Try to just let things be as they come to you and enjoy every moment you can. Pay attention to the things that will contribute to manifesting your intention, not the things that are keeping you from it.
It doesn’t mean crap won’t happen, because it certainly will. How you deal with it has every bit to do with allowing your intentions to manifest though. Everything that happens in our life is for a reason and if we can only stop and say, “what does this mean?” we will be a lot better off.
Some things will happen that will seem like a roadblock or detour. There is a message in all of that. Again how you deal with it will determine your success in manifesting what you really want.
Its nature’s way of training us to become more in alignment with what we really want.
I have a friend in the heating and air conditioning business as a solo entrepreneur. When installing a new furnace and/or oil tank or duct work he calls me for a second pair of hands. Invariably when he quotes the jobs, he doesn’t leave room for detours or he doesn’t scope the job well in front. I’m not sure which.
So, when the actual installation is about to take place, the location of the furnace is key to the ductwork that is needed to make the system functional. A quick glance may well serve the install. However, invariably, almost every install has had a component that wouldn’t go as planned. Instead of using the energy to look for alternative opportunities, he spends it cursing and blasting that which will not work. Sometimes to the degree of literally hammering it into being which almost always fails.
I watch him in his rant but don’t join him, and at the same time look for opportunities by stepping back. Then I offer my two cents worth. Next thing you know, he’s rejecting my idea I suppose because it wasn’t his. So after hammering for a while, he gives up, looks at the alternative and finally agrees it is a better step to take. Oh do we hate to be wrong, but the truth is, if something is supposed to be, it has to be on it’s own terms. Working with the Universe on that is so much easier. It kind of goes along with the term “use your head, not your feet”, or “measure twice, cut once”.
