Before I started teaching yoga and would go to class as a student, the teacher would talk about “intention setting” at the beginning of class. Until recently, I didn’t fully understand what that meant.
How the “intention” process works:
Think of a clear path, a concept for where you would like to see yourself.
Listen deeply to your heart and start making moves towards satisfying your hearts intention.
Once you start moving down that path, the universe begins to recognize which direction you are moving and miraculously you start to see the pieces come together.
This is when manifestation begins.
This all sounds easy right? Not so much, but it is real. Most of the time it requires a huge leap. I understood this process when I took the leap to get certified as a yoga teacher. I had been asking the universe for more ways that I could bring yoga into my life. And bam! just like that, as soon as I took the leap that lead me to get certified (read my post about that here), these things that I had been seeking started to unfold.
I have spent a large portion of my life trying to control each and every facet. Trying to see, exactly where I want to be. I have struggled at times when things haven’t worked out, but I’ve always tried to remember that this is part of the process. As Deepak Chopra says “detach from the known, step into the unknown, and surrender our desires to the creative mind that orchestrates the dance of the universe.”
This process takes courage and now that I have seen it in action, I want to help others understand it. We can never fully know what will happen, but if we listen close, the path will unwind.
