Intuition, Intention & Creating an Extraordinary New Year: 3 Keys
Do you want the New Year to be extraordinary and your best year yet?
If so, it’s time to put the 3 keys to manifesting an extraordinary year to work for you and take control of your life.
The 3 Keys to creating an extraordinary new year are:
You must use the 3 keys together to create an extraordinary year by learning to listen to what your intuition has been telling you all along, creating an intention and plan around your desires followed by taking action.
Key 1: Why listening to your intuition and following it is important.
This is important because your best ideas and inspiration come to you through your intuition. You and every person on the planet is connected to a vast network of intelligence where every answer and solution already exists. Your job is to ask the right questions and then to keep an open mind about where and how the solution will appear. Your intuition is the vehicle that conveys this information to you.
When you ask for answers the greatest thing you can do to ensure your success is to have faith that you’ll receive them. Once you pose a question and have faith believing there is a solution the entire Universe will get behind you to bring it to you. Your subconscious will begin to search through each and every file stored in your memory banks to see if you already stored away the answer. In the meantime your faith and belief that an answer exists is telegraphed into the Universe where your request to search for this information begins.
Your brain and heart emit electrical impulses that can be tracked and measured using devices such as an n EEG or EKG machine. Did you know that these electrical impulses are not unlike radio waves that can travel far beyond our Earth’s atmosphere, our solar system and out into the universe? Every time you make a request your body emits these signals that travel deep into the heart of the universe. So, never doubt that your thoughts, feelings and emotions are not being “heard.” The Universe always gets the message and is always listening.
You’ll recognize what your intuition is telling you to do because the evidence to go forward with your desire will appear all around you in your environment. If you have a desire to leave your job and build your own online business you may start noticing books written by entrepreneurs that teach you how to do this. You may also turn on the radio in the car at the exact moment an expert in entrepreneurship is being interviewed. You may also begin meeting more entrepreneurs who left corporate jobs at networking events. These are all signs that the new path is being paved in your life. These signs show you that there is a way to accomplish what you desire. The Universe is telling you that other people have done what you wish to do and so can you.
A lot of people ask this question: How do I know I’m supposed to do this? What if it’s a whim and I fail?
If you have a desire that will not go away no matter how much you try to ignore it then it’s not a whim. A whim has nothing behind it. It’s a fleeting fancy that caught your attention just like a tumble weed rolling by in the wind. Once it has rolled past you it’s forgotten.
A desire comes from a deep place and is part of your purpose and mission in this life. This desire is propelling you to leave your comfort zone and stretch beyond what you think you’re capable of so that you further your education in “Earth School.” If you try something and fail–so what? There are no guarantees in this life except that we are only here for a brief time and then our body gives out on us. We are here to take full advantage of this life not cower in the corner afraid of it. If you are afraid to take chances and make the most of your life you will waste this gift that is only a brief moment in time.
Have you ever noticed how fast time goes by? Does it seem as if the last new year was just days ago? Life goes by so fast you must take charge and get uncomfortable at times in order to make the most of the time you’ve been given. So while there are no guarantees about success there is one thing I know for sure: by taking a stand for your life and going out there and acting upon your desires even if you fail you’ll be miles ahead of where you were before you tried.
Your education about what to do and what not to do will be the foundation you build your next venture upon. This seasoned experience will serve you well and lead to your eventual success.
Do not fail to listen to those whispers, nudges and desires that speak to you. They are pulling you toward expanding your consciousness of what’s possible for you which is their function.
Your desires are just like a river that runs through you. If you don’t release your desires into the world this river backs up and overflows your mental banks. When it floods it wreaks havoc upon your life. You’ll find yourself frustrated, stuck, overwhelmed, resentful, angry, unsettled, jealous, dissatisfied, and unhappy and constantly trying to stuff your desires back down. All of these negative emotions will spill out into other areas of your life like your relationships and your health because you’re blocking your growth and expansion.
If you accept that you have a desire and then channel it safely toward creating with it you will feel empowered and alive. This powerful urge to create and be more than you are now does not lose its power whether you work with it or try to squelch it. It simply releases its power causing either positive or negative outcomes in your life. Your intuition was meant to flow through you and pull you toward reaching your highest potential. Begin to recognize this and do not try to wall it off.
Key 2: Without Intention your desires are merely flights of fancy
Once you know what your desires are the next step is to create an intention around it.
An intention is a conscious acknowledgement that you not only have the desire but that you “intend” to make it a reality.
Allow the desire to take shape fully. Play with it in your imagination. Take this skeleton of an idea and flesh it out. Where do you want to go with it? How far? How high? How deep do you want to take it? Allow yourself to get excited about the possibility. Feel the joy of what it would be like to be, have or do what it is you desire right now in the present.
Your Action Steps:
1. Get really clear by asking yourself why you want it? When you know your “why” you’re more apt to be motivated to throw yourself into it 100 percent. The more deeply you create the intention to follow through on this inspiration the more you’ll get signs from the Universe of how to proceed. Your intention coupled with your faith and belief that it’s possible will be telegraphed to the Universe via your body’s electro-magnetic impulses and in turn the Universe will open new doors for you to walk through to help you bring about your desire. The stronger your intention the more often these road signs will appear.
2. To bolster your intention create an affirmation or mantra that you can use during the day should any fear or insecurity pop up about where you’re headed. This is part of the steering mechanism you need in order to captain your ship. When you begin to see that you’ve veered off course or are even listing just a bit you must pull out your mantra and steer yourself back on course. Every time you use it you are further cementing your intention into your being and it is being broadcast more loudly to the Universe.
3. Write down what you wish to create. Fill in every detail about your desire. Add dates by which you intend for it to manifest and read this statement every day. Each time you read it your intention goes deeper and deeper into every fiber of your being and this strengthens the signal of the broadcaster to the Universe.
4. Other ways to support your intention might be to write a letter to yourself detailing this desire and then seal it up and do not open it until one year has elapsed. You might also create a vision board for it or journal about it. Just know that the more clarity you have around it the more easily the path will be revealed to you.
The more excitement and emotion you can emit over it the stronger the signal to the Universe will become. The stronger your belief and faith that what you desire is possible the faster it will manifest. And the more you live and act from a place of certainty that this desire is already present in your life the more spectacularly it will appear in your life.
Always “let go and let God” work it out and allow it to be the manifestation for the good of all concerned. This vast storehouse of we call Greater Intelligence, or the Universe, life force or God has been around a lot longer than we have and surely knows a thing or two more than we do. When we let go and let God and ask that the outcome benefit the highest good of all concerned we are saying that while we are in partnership with it to co-create our lives we are humble enough to know that we ourselves are not the source of the power that flows through us. Our job is to let this great power flow through us and not to become attached to how it does what it does. When you are attached you will create a blockage that will be as damaging as the block we create when we ignore our desires.
Key 3: Ground your Intuition and Intention by taking Action
Take intuitively inspired action. This is the most critical of the three keys and where many fall down on the job.
It’s of now use to listen to your intuition, get inspired and excited and to create your intention if you don’t follow through and act upon it. This too creates a dam that eventually results in destruction. Any time there is an unfulfilled desire we are creating the potential for negative consequences. Suppose you take seriously the desire to build your own business and eventually hope to leave your 9 to 5 job. You put everything in place and over time begin making money. Eventually you make enough to feel comfortable that you can support yourself if you quit your job. But, you’re afraid and fearful about quitting your job so instead you keep trying to juggle both. You work tirelessly into the night on your business and the Universe keeps telling you “all systems go” by sending you awesome new clients or projects that are perfect for your growing business yet you still resist quitting.
How long can you continue to burn the candle at both ends? You’re exhausted. You resent the time you spend at your job because you know in your heart you’d rather be working on your business. You lose interest in work and call in sick frequently. You don’t feel well and your energy is low and therefore you catch more colds. You don’t have the stamina you once had or the free time to spend nurturing the precious relationships in your life because every spare moment is spent on your business.
Your spouse feels neglected. Your children never see you at their games anymore and you’re short tempered and have arguments with your partner. Eventually you begin losing clients who want even more from you but because you still have a job you’re not able to satisfy them. Now the business you once had isn’t growing but going backward. All the people you once had in your life are pulling away from you. You’re angry and resentful. You blame your job; you blame your responsibilities at home.
Can you see where this is going? You are headed in a downward spiral. And why did this happen? It’s a reflection of your fear and not taking action and letting what you built slip through your fingers. Don’t let this be you. Create a plan and take action this year. Make the coming New Year an extraordinary one.
