Intention and Attention

You have the power to create a reality that excites you on every level. Through your intentions you can land your dream relationship, travel to places you thought you’d never go, and live a life that at one point may have felt out of reach. The possibilities are endless. But it’s not the intention alone that brews this seemingly magical power.

Intention is internal ( yin ) while attention is external (yang). Just another choice of words for Yin and yang. Intentions and goals are different. Intention is like a theme and goals are the ways to achieve that intention. For example, the intention can be to stay fit and healthy, the goal can be to run a 5 kilometre distance within half an hour daily.

An intention is the budding flower given life by all of the underlying thoughts, words, and actions in the rich soil below the surface. The attention is the energy and focus extended externally.

So, how do you start your regular day? Do you wake up with or without a goal or set specific intentions? For me, everyday is a new page, a new script. I set new intentions every single day. Sometimes the same intention for some days and I “pay attention” to the same thing by taking action.

If you have not been successful in manifesting what you want, then try and re-examine your intention. Sometimes double checking to ensure your intentions are correctly created can bring the results you desire.

Everything that happens in the universe begins with intention. When I decide to buy a birthday present, shake my legs , or call a friend, it all starts with intention.

WHAT IS INTENTION?


Intention is probably one of the most essential parts of healing, abundance, manifestation, personal and spiritual development. Your intention is a large determinator of any success or failure you experience. Intention is the blueprint of your experiences and the reality you create. The right intention and, more importantly, being aware of the intentions you are setting, is very essential.

WHAT IS ATTENTION?

Attention is defined as the act of concentrating and keeping one’s mind focused on something. However, alertness is the initial step in the attention process. If we are going to do something, or listen to someone, the first thing that we need is to feel alert. In other words, we need to feel like our battery is charged, like our brains have energy. Just the way our bodies need physical energy if we are going to run, our brains need mental energy if we are going to think.

Your intention and attention is the yin and yang. The internal and external. The very essence of life. While, Attention is awareness of the here and now in a focal and perceptive way. Paying attention is the first step in the learning and growth process.

In order to manifest anything at all,you must set an intention and focus your energy (pay attention) to that in order to bring it to life.

On the video below, I dived a bit deep into what intention and attention is and how we use it to manifest.

Please watch, learn and share to as many people as you would love to.

The dark night of the soul

Have you ever felt alone and lonely in your universe ? Felt like everything was totally meaningless?, like you had no sense of direction, unable to bear going through the motions and feelings you’re experiencing like you have lost all hope? Like your alive but barely. You could be going through a ‘Dark Night of the Soul’

This is a deeply miserable and hurtful process of growth that a lot people go through unaware and come out the other side a more conscious and ripe individual. It is more like shedding your skin but on the inside of your mind. It is the war within yourself and that’s scary but it really is your ego dissolving itself.

The dark night of the soul goes really deep and it is a also a major turning event in the person’s life. This is a stage in personal and spiritual development when a person undergoes a difficult but very significant transition (more like a spiritual surgery) to a deeper perception of life and their role in it. (You know that moment when you start asking why certain things happen to you? Who are you ? Why you’re here?, Well this is when you get the answers.) This enhanced awareness is accompanied by a painful shedding of previous conceptual frameworks such as identity, relationship, career, sometimes weight, habit or belief system that previously allowed them to construct meaning in their life.

The Dark Night of the Soul might sound unfamiliar but it certainly has various relative conceptions in religion, psychology and mythology. Sometimes, it could be associated with conditions like ‘existential crisis’ and forms of depression. It literally is a form of spiritual depression.

Within the dark night of the soul, you’re facing your flaws. You’re facing everything that you view as being unhealthy about yourself, all your negative self talk, selfishness, your greed, contempt, pride, hate, jealousy. You’re tackling all of these issues and it’s hard to face that we have them. Yet, by accepting that we have this part of ourselves (and we all do) you’re acknowledging areas of your own being that require work. This is you at your darkest so if you can face these problems, identify them and come out to the Light on the other side, then you already know exactly what areas need to be worked on.

What’s happening during this period is, the old meaning and identity that your ego gave your life and it’s structure is melting away and when something melts/dissolves the temperature changes. So it hurts you, but in reality your soul is releasing itself and expanding to it’s truest nature.

Facing the dark night of the soul symptoms isn’t an experience that will do you any physical harm. It happens for you and of you. It is something that’s happening go-creatively with the universe. It’s entirely a spiritual battle…and it’s a battle with yourself. The only person you are facing is you but it’s not the cheery, open, happy version of you. It’s the opposite, the dark version. The version of you that lives in the shadows and is kept at bay by energy from the Light. .This is where you’re facing your subconscious. I know it might all sound a bit intense but this is where the therapeutic aspect of this very painful transformative experience becomes clear.The famous saying: “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger” comes to mind in this situation.

Are you currently experiencing it? Do you feel empty like you’re having an ego death and life’s pleasure doesn’t do it for you any longer? You might feel like you’re on the wrong path and you may have to start all over and that makes you feel completely different and confused. You’re not alone. There are millions of people who feel the same or have in the past. Remember it’s happening to you, by you for you. Let it unfold don’t try to control it. It’s simply your soul setting itself free. Feel free to share your experience in the comments below. So we could help you with tips on how to navigate onward.

Yin and yang

We live in a cyclical world and if you’re an avid reader on my site by now, you know I mean literally we live in a cyclical world (i.e a womb, this is why what goes around comes back around to complete the cycle). Listen , within that is a spiral( I.e the tree of life, — a.k.a-the snake on a tree) and this is why everything in life is interwoven, because they all end and begin eventually which makes every single existing thing connected. Your experiences, your imaginations, your environment, plants, insects etc…Every existing thing!!

To understand the YIN and YANG is to over stand the within and without— black and white. Dark and light.Conscious and subconscious. (aka seen vs unseen)..These are all one in the same thing. ( Do not get confused by the words. They are all the same thing) !!

What emits light?— The sun — with light you can see ie you see things, people, places to go, what you’re surrounded by .. basically what you’re consciously aware of is the “YANG”— the output, the external, outside..

What withholds light? —The moon —Yin (darkness )you can’t see , people sleep — it’s the illusion realm ( you can dream, day dream etc )— when you close your eyes you can see but not through the external ( a.k.a the yang ).. because you are seeing from within – The yin .. Basically, what you’re subconsciously aware of is the Yin realm – the input.

In the yin realm there is no direction. In the yang realm there is direction.You can not compare the two because they both make the whole being we live in .. Everything that exists is also non existent.

When they come together it turns out to be a whole circle the wheel”— like in the tarot cards it is “the wheel of fortune”.The whole”.

The yin realm— is feminine i.e your emotions, your vibrations, how you feel (aka the moon, mother).

For instance in our daily lives this is how it could play out — when you’re sad people ask you, “why are you down”? That’s because the yang has directions( i.e up and down etc..(when you’re up, you are excited and when you’re down you’re not ). This because it is the external part of you that they can see..the output, your yang) but the yin (i.e within,internal, input )doesn’t have any directions and if you’re asked the same question— it implies they are talking about your spirit” — which implies “ why is your spirit down”?? Get it ?

The essence of this breakdown is so that you know that we need both the yin and yang to be whole — same as the sun and moon (masculine and feminine )as I wrote previously .. These are all the SAME NAMES DIFFERENT WORDS.

We are living in a whole new world and so many generations of lies and confusion has been passed down since the beginning of time. Some books were written out of greed, some out of fear, some just for power,hence the pass down of this huge mis-information, Most teachers teach what they were taught or what they read from another confused teacher with little or no explanation so they barely understand what they teach and that leaves people confused with even more questions. We have been given so many words from different languages, books and teachers to describe the same damn thing and this leaves room for confusion. Remember there is nothing outside of us that is not inside of us. We need the whole of ourselves inside to feel whole outside ( externally). I really hope my break down helps you assemble this properly so we all can grow and ascend accordingly.

You need your imaginations and actions to manifest..if you have just the yin part of you —at 100% and the yang part of you lacking you’ll be frustrated in one area of your life and vice versa.

Here is what I mean ,your soul lives in the yin realm— where there is no direction .. so without the physical body you’re living in the yin realm? Do you get it ?

Your body is the yang- conscious, external, the physical and without the body there is no space for the soul to live in (the yin , emotions, internal, feminine).. that’s why we have a spirit which is the beginning of it all.

Yin +yang — makes a being!! Your being !!

Same as ..

Sun and moon

Thoughts and actions

Within and without

Heaven and hell

Yin and yang

Masculine and feminine

And, my dear royalties….This is life !!

The relationship between the sun and the moon

Relationship is the “KEY” to everything in life.

Please read that again..

Now let me break this down. You see, life is all about in and out (i.e inside and outside, internal and external, yin and yang)

It’s 9:19pm right now as I’m writing this, laughing at how I’m hoping you reading this “overstands”this.

The sun is the daytime and usually what we experience is people doing activities during the day and sleep (reboot i.e die) at night( is when the moon and the stars are out). See where I’m going with this?

The outside world , this world where you are reading this from is a projector screen basically! You are seeing what you are thinking plus feeling!

This is why I said in my last post if you are able to give your external activities 12 hours out of 24 hours in a day to doing whatever you do.. the other 12 hours in a day which of course is the other half, why not use it to reboot( ie sleep, create, listen , feel etc). This is the new age ! The new wave. The age of Aquarius and i believe it’s my duty to teach this in the most simplest of ways possible so we all can grasp how far fetched we think life is versus what it really really is !

The relationship that you have between your thoughts and your action is what I mean when I say the relationship between the sun and the moon. Because that’s what it actually is ..

Please read that again..! I don’t think you caught that ..

The moon is only a reflection of the sun. That’s what it is .. so it means your external actions come from within( internal : ie moon ).. Get it ??

When we understand the concept of relationship we would begin to enter into a new world. Relationship is the merging of two or more energies .. it’s that simple. This could be in form of anything. Think it so it is..!

The way you think( which is of course done in the head, is the only think that makes you act how you act ( ie the sun). Because even physically the moon only reflects the light that the sun emits. (This is why we have phases of the moon * because the reflection of light from the sun changes as it orbits around the earth)..This is why women see their periods once a month (ie once per one moon rotation aka per month).

If you notice something, about all these bodies they all rotate right? The sun rotates around the earth likewise the moon . Think deeply about this for a moment .. Why do you think that people say life is turn by turn ? ( aka rotation? Aka ‘what goes around comes around”? All of those statements are true because it is CONSCIOUSNESS! If these planetary bodies that are here to give us light have to rotate and each have their own time to shine just as the sun has day the moon has night right? Why won’t individuals understand that you also have to wait your turn ? But while wait, learn to love yourself ( which simply means accept your habits and your flaws and your awesomeness no matter how terrible you have been labeled to be. Because there is no space to be anyone else but you..! Everyone is already taken !

Create a bond between your thoughts and your feelings then you begin to take charge of your life. When you realize you are having a negative thought and you can catch yourself in the moment. Hmmmm.., then you are beginning get deep into your own ascension.

We are all royals in our own right and you got to get it so you don’t get “EAT”* (en).

Remember, you are the creator of your universe. Tune in to the right mindset and change your life.
