Tip of the Week:  Create Your Day (Part 1): Intention




Most of us are running on cruise control.  


There are so many demands on our time and energy that it seems like a luxury to stop and think about what kind of day we wish to experience.  But if we are not consciously giving thought and emotional energy to the kind of day we want, we run the risk of being in constant reaction to life instead of its architect.


In 1875, a young American poet by the name of William Ernest Henley penned the lines:

"I am the master of my fate; I am the captain of my soul."  He wrote his famous poem, Invictus, from a hospital bed at the age of twenty-six, after surviving tuberculosis and a leg amputation.


I remember my father always reciting those words to me, especially when he wanted me to focus on my studies.  Dad was right.  If we want to live by design we have to assume the responsibility of creating our day.  We have to be the masters of our fates, the captains of our souls.


In this week's Tip of the Week, we will begin a three part series on CREATING YOUR DAY.  Part 1 will deal with INTENTION, Part 2 with EMOTION, and Part 3 with ACTION.


With love,

We cannot assume that the Universe knows what we want to experience in our day.  We must be specific with our thoughts and our intentions. 


According to the law of attraction, we are already creating our lives.  We are constantly manifesting our circumstances with our thoughts and our emotions.  We can either choose to create consciously or unconsciously.


To begin creating our day, we must first clarify what it is we want, what it is we are intending to experience.  In the same way in which we can use a magnifying glass to harness the energy of the sun to create a laser beam, we can use the power of intention to laser our thoughts and create our intended outcome in any situation.  


A powerful and clear intention automatically recruits commitment, accountability, desire, and will, creating a momentum that propels us toward what we intend with laser-like power and speed.




1.  Declare this week as your time to begin focusing on consciously creating your days.


2.  Decide on what it is that you want to experience.  Focus on what you want, not on what you don't want.


3.  Set a clear intention of what it is you want.  Be specific.  How much love, peace, connectedness and happiness do you want to experience?  How much success and positive energy do you envision in your day?  How much good are you willing to welcome?


4.  Close your eyes and SEE and FEEL your day unfolding the way you want it to.  Make your image sensory-rich and compelling.  See it, hear it, smell it, touch it, and feel it.


5.  Feel the positive emotions of standing in this image.  Savour it.


6. "Kiss" this image and send it outwards with love unto the Universe.
