'Creativity is the ultimate adventure.'

It means learning healthy boundaries,
letting go of co-dependence and embracing
personal empowerment. Intention, once
recognised, should be then left to its
own birthing. Let the outcome surprise
you in its own time and its own way. A
common mistake is to want to direct
the manifestation of the wish and to get
impatient at the amount of time it's taking
to appear. The trick is to actually forget
about it. Once a wish is wished, it's out
there in the ether. It has to be yours, but
not perhaps at a time of your choosing
and there's no guessing how it will come.
Listen for it, but not too intently; wait for
it but with a peaceful heart; expect but
not with impatience; be thankful ahead
without seeing any evidence. Detach.
"If you realise that all things change,
there is nothing you will try to hold on
to. If you are not afraid of dying, there is
nothing you cannot achieve."
-- Lao Tzu, Chinese philosopher
One of the best ways to strengthen
intentions is to affirm and saying
affirmations helps us do that.
Affirmations are simply firm statements
of belief that are not yet reality, but
believed to be. I work with them a lot and
they seem to work best if used as part of
a daily spiritual routine. At first they seem
unbelievable, even ludicrous, for example,
saying you're wealthy when you're
struggling to buy food. But they work by
changing your mind set, and reinforcing
positive belief. They're very powerful
when used correctly. Sometimes, a
new affirmation will manifest with
startling swiftness, which means the
groundwork has already been done for
that improvement. Other ones can take
long periods of persistence for results to
appear. Many people give up after a while,
declaring it a hopeless cause which means
that affirmation will not work for them.
If you work with affirmations, try not to
look for success with them, but just say
them with conviction day after day and
let the magic of your intention come to
fruition in its own time.
Timing is everything and again,
requires trust. Letting go of timetables
and schedules and deadlines is difficult
in our society which is so geared to these
things. Yet if you can learn to do it, not
only will you alleviate a lot of stress in
your life, but you'll garner much more
satisfaction from your achievements. I
guess it's the old "work smart, not hard"
philosophy. Trust can be of God, of
yourself, of the people around you, in
your abilities or career, in money.
Ultimately, it is believing in good, that
life is essentially supportive and a joyful
experience. Once you have that, the
details don't matter nearly as much.
If intentions create our lives, as Wayne
Dyer says, then we ought to intend the best
for ourselves, shouldn't we? Do that and
let the rest take care of itself. Intend joy
and laughter and love. Make it good. Wish
on a star, but with a heart already full of
gratitude, not as an act of idle hope. Believe
in intention and let it become reality for
