7 Principles to Manifest Intention

7 Principles to Manifest Intention

Before you become master of your own life, you feel inadequate and powerless. Unforeseen things happen all the time. By contrast, after you assume authorship of your own life, outcomes are never in doubt. No matter what happens to you, each event has a place and a meaning. You also begin to master the art of manifestation. You just intend a thing and it happens. You co-create with the universe.

When highly successful people are interviewed, many times they repeat the same formula: “I had a dream and I stuck with it, because I was certain that it would come true.” This attitude is a symptom—one might say the symptom—of co-creation.

The following qualities can be seen in people who have mastered the art of intention:

1. They are not attached to the past of how things should turn out.
2. They adapt quickly to errors and mistakes.
3. They have good antennae and are alert to tiny signals.
4. They have a good connection between mind and body.
5. They have no trouble embracing uncertainty and ambiguity.
6. They remain patient about the outcome to their desires, trusting the universe to bring results.
7. They make karmic connections and are able to see the meaning in chance events.

Exciting to know that we are co-creators!

I like to live my life aiming for my healtfelt dreams. Dreams keep one focused and I think perseverance is an admirable trait.

Having moved to a new country, I am not as successful as I was with attaining similar accomplishments. However. I'm also aware of being side-tracked by trying to understand people's different behaviour. I don't understand weird under-currents, having come from a confident nation who is more open - so you know where you stand. Despite being patient, this really throws me off-track. Will have to work on embracing ambiguity........

Thank you.
You (Deepak Chopra) make our life sound so exiting and really worth developing and training. Life is not finished yet; we are all in the middle of living it!
And this gives me the opportunity to choose more good stuff to cope with and change with.
