We kick off the “Summer Series” for our weekly Sunday morning conversations with our first guest – Jill Leigh. The topic will be “Intention”. Please enjoy this framing post written by Jill Leigh for our discussion. I hope you will join Jill and me for what promises to be a very interesting conversation. Thank you.
What role does intention play in your life? Is it part of your spiritual practice, your way of being?
Intentionality serves as a means of discerning choice and desire. Used to hone focus and to keep the eye on the prize, intention is a key spiritual concept, one that is prescribed throughout religious, metaphysical and alternative healing practices.
Learning to apply intent is a beautiful spiritual practice, assisting the seeker to develop a level of mindfulness about thought, word and deed. Intentions held in conscious awareness inform the mind, body and spirit, and support metabolization of energy for manifest reality.
Intentions are best applied through positive focus, what is wanted, desired or needed, rather than the opposite. And yet sometimes people find themselves focused on intention through what they don’t want, need or desire. ‘I don’t want another relationship like the last one.’ Or ‘I don’t need another car that breaks down like this one does.’
While figuring out what is not wanted, desired or needed can be the initial process for developing an intention, it’s merely the basis for framing an intention.
Taking a moment to articulate what is wanted, desired or needed in positive terms is an important component to manifesting that objective.
The Spiritchat community is fully intentional in inviting you to join us on Sunday, June 9 at 9am ET to discuss this topic and support one another in living our lives through intentional focus.
