Your Journey to Being Whole…… “Intention”

In this the third article about Wholeness, I am introducing ‘Intention’ and how my understanding of this has changed during my Journey over the last decade or so…
INTENTION is traditionally defined as: (1) A thing intended; an aim or plan, or (2) Your desire for (or to do) something. On first thinking about how to explain it here to you, I considered Intention to be about achieving a particular Goal as in (1) above or a Motivation as in (2) but when I thought more, neither of these really describe what Intention has been for me. Intention for me has been a ‘How-to’… HOW do I reach my Goal rather than what the Goal is… HOW do I carry out my Plan rather than what is driving me… HOW do I want to achieve something that really matters to me… So it has been more about the character of the Journey than the actual nuts and bolts and details… WHAT is the HEALTHIEST way? And this Idea of Intention has in itself had its own learning curve – a number of Realisations along the way that changed and expanded how I worked with Energy… I stepped forward rather than going round another loop leading to the same outcome. So what were these Realisations about Intention?… The first…

GOOD VS BAD – Moving Beyond Judgement ‘Highest Good’ is a well-known philosophy for spiritual growth; surely we all want a life which is good… but who decides what is good? If I think something is good and you think it is bad, who is right? And if I stop doing something that I really enjoy because others think it is bad, how do I deal with that inside? Guilt? Shame? Blame? Suppression? Is there something you do that you think is good and it hurts someone else, is that still good? Do you consider yourself Bad but think that’s a good way to be or vice versa? Labelling something Good or Bad is an opinion, a judgement, based on an individual’s or a society’s belief systems. Healing-wise I worked with Highest Good for about a decade, but then I began to see ‘Bad Energy’ building up like a blockage in a pipe… any more and it would explode. The Highest Good Intent was somehow stopping me face the ‘Bad Energy’… it felt unresolved… I realised that I needed to include this ‘bad’ in my healing protocols and began using the Highest Way Intent. In just realising this idea, I saw how it freed up my Energy, my Life and I felt more complete.
The Power of Non-Judgement Difficult challenges that occur in our lives can help us grow; it is not really about the other person but is about us learning to deal with a situation in a way that works and improves our own life and health, in a way that achieves resolution and peace within. I am only sharing my experience here and to me the reassuring aspect of holistic self-development work is that… ‘the proof of the pudding is in the eating’ 🙂 When your Energy heals and updates, your life does the same, things just gradually improve and move forward. Learn from your challenges… become more Whole. More on Intention next issue 🙂

What is your Criteria for Growth and your Life?

Your Intention will influence the fundamental nature of your Life’s Path.  Mine has evolved over time and especially since being at the frontline of healing energies with Kinesiology and Reiki.  From my experience, as much as we think our lives have this over-riding direction, when you want change and it doesn’t happen, what is that telling you? What do you do? Of course everything I talk about is subjective and you have to run it past your own inner guidance and filters but here are my views at this time…

I originally based all my healing work on Highest Good Intention and worked with that for a few years… Of course we all want what is best for ourselves, don’t we? Less pain, an easier ride, help from others miraculously appearing as needed… but what do you do if that is not your experience?

I got to the point in my life, about 6 years ago (2010 ish), that fundamental things did not change in my life, although I had grown within and was more focused, certain issues were persistently annoying or even getting worse! I felt like I was going round in circles… help from the outside world seemed to have disappeared whereas I had always had some sort of feeling that I was looked after… I knew that I had not imagined that and it had been real to me but what now when all my usual avenues of inner reassurance seemed to have dissipated?  I knew within that there was something else I needed to understand… all my journey so far had brought me to that point… and now I was ready for something new…

My discomfort had been growing about setting a Highest Good Intention…  what did that really mean?  Wasn’t Good and Bad an opinion, a judgement? And I believed then and still do that judgements are human behaviour, not God or Highest Love behaviour… so was Highest Love an Intention to use?  Again a process began which I am now very familiar with… what does such and such actually mean in energetic terms…?    And I began asking myself what am I really trying to achieve in my Life but, more than that, I was at a wall and my usual inner direction was not leading me through it!?  All my inner / higher guidance seemed to have deserted me but… I knew my past journey and I knew an answer would come from somewhere…

Up to this point, I had come through a very isolating phase in my Life and, as much as I could not understand why, I felt I was on a mission to understand more about how subtle energy works, how ‘holistic healing’ actually works – (historically that’s me!?).  If Highest Love was a new Intention, what did that mean? Surely I was using that anyway by focusing on the ‘best possible outcome’ but what did that mean?! Best for who? Me? The people dear to me? The World? How big an Energy could I work with and how to decide if that was ethical or appropriate…?  As usual I brainstormed, blew a few fuses in my circuitry until sanity resumed (a joke by the way ?! but it feels like this sometimes) … and I decided that what was BEST for every energy field, however big or small, whether within and without, was to be Empowered! And this has lead me on my journey to date…  This means that every energy is given a Personal Space to think for itself, gain understanding about the energies it is interacting with and then to decide for itself what to do…  it is not up to me to make the judgement for another, it is up to each of us to decide how we relate to ourselves and All that Is… being Empowered facilitates this process…

Immediately my healing work took on a new momentum… ‘Highest Way’ Intention began… What I found was that I became more impatient for faster healing… I was fed up with certain issues not getting healed!  I felt more empowered to do something about them… my understandings evolved and are still evolving… this new phase in my personal journey required me to face bigger issues… ask deeper questions… but I was able now to do that and manage my Self better!  Every step of the way I found answers… I felt safer to really tackle my deepest vulnerabilities… which I was and am really sick of seeing in my Life… still uncovering more to work on… but I now have a deeper reassurance in who I am and what we all have the potential to be!

Everything is Energy in some Form, I know that now more than ever.  We can learn to manage our energies and transform ourselves and the World… it just takes Intention and the Willingness and Tenacity to walk your Path.

You choose your Intention deep within but realise that we have all inherited certain Patterns individually, as families, as communities and as humans, some very hard-wired patterns and however much you internally intend something, these Patterns may be what play out in your Life!  It is a very complex picture and I am still learning as we all are… there is no wrong or right but achieving Win-Win is my criteria for my personal growth and for the healing work I do in the World.  There is the Potential in Humanity for there to be no losers… just Win-Win all the way… the more Empowered we all are, the quicker change can happen, the more of our subtle energetic database can be processed…
