Energy Work Basics Part 3: The Power of High Intention
At SPIRIT Connections, we believe that the most powerful tool we have when working with energy is our ability to set a high intention. We add the word "high" to intention since we are interested in intentions with a high vibration.
When you are starting something new, it is helpful to set an intention. An intention is about what you want in generic terms. We often use the term: "the highest good of all" as our intention. We then know whatever happens is for the highest good of all whether it looks like that to us or not.
An intention is not about how you achieve what you intend. How our intention is achieved is best left to the universe (or Higher Power, spirit, source, God, Allah, Buddha?) to figure out. Our experience has shown that the universe is much more creative than we are. Our job is to be clear about what we want, and to set a high intention. Then we let the universe get to work on manifesting it for us. We help the universe by following our guidance, intuition, and gut feelings. We trust that the intention is unfolding.
Maybe you've had the experience of something unfolding in a way that far exceeds your expectations yet is completely in alignment with your desires. That is the power of setting a high intention and leaving the details up to the cosmos. By attempting to dictate how something occurs, we limit the creativity of the universe.
Setting an intention is not about controlling the outcome. An intention is not about a specific outcome for another person. We do not usually know what is in their highest good. Most of us have gone through so-called "tough" patches in our lives. With hindsight, these tough patches often turn out to be gifts in disguise. So, we can ask for the highest good of all. That way, what needs to take place does and we don't need to know what it is.
To recap, the most powerful tool we have is our own high intention. If we state to ourselves and the universe that our intention is to contribute to the highest good of ourselves and the planet, it will be so.

Where Do You Go For Your Intellectual Feast?
(excerpted from Leading an Inspired Life)
Most of us, at one point or another, take a moment to evaluate our lives and the paths that we have chosen to take. We each do it at different times and with different emphasis. Sometimes people do it around high school or college graduation time, when deciding what career to pursue, how we want to be regarded by society, friends, and family or how to transition ourselves from a student to a grown up.

Do You Feel Headed For Shipwreck?
The ocean liner Achille Lauro sailed perpetually under a dark cloud. In 1953 it collided with another ship. In 1975 it rammed a Lebanese vessel, killing four people. In 1981 it suffered a fire that claimed two lives. In 1985, Palestinian terrorists grabbed world headlines by seizing the ship, slaying passenger Leon Klinghoffer, and dumping him and his wheelchair overboard. In December of 1994, off Somalia, a fire broke out in the engine room, forcing all 1,000 aboard to abandon ship. Two days later, the Achille Lauro sank to the bottom of the Indian Ocean.
The other day I found myself frustrated with the slow progress on my new project. Other people involved, subcontractors, just 'weren't getting it'. Why couldn't they just see what needed to be done and do it? Why was everything taking so long?

World Kindness Day
Once upon a time, in ancient India, a beggar favored a certain foot of land in a village square. He wanted to be rich, but he only knew dire poverty. One day he died on the spot where he had been begging for decades. The villagers decided to bury him on the spot where he had spent decades begging. They marveled when they found that only a few feet beneath the surface lay a treasure chest from an ancient kingdom.
