The power of intention

The beautiful thing and my favorite aspect of yoga is that we are given the chance to set an intention before we begin to shape shift in the physical poses of the practice.

Everything that happens in the universe begins with the power of intention and that includes our dreams.

Intentions are the creative force that fuels and give life to our desires whether we are seeking love, money, meaningful relationships or purpose in our lives.

The ancient yogis believed that our destiny is essentially shaped by our deepest intentions and desires. The Upanishads explains that: “You are what your deepest desire is. As your desire is, so is your intention. As your intention is, so is your will. As your will is, so is your deed. As your deed is, so is your destiny.”

When we release old tensions that are trapped within the physical body by stretching, we create new space that becomes a wonderful fertile ground for the seed of our intentions to sprout. This sacred space we generate becomes especially more fertile if it is basked in contentment and gratitude as opposed to lack so it’s equally important to count the many blessings we have in our lives as we zone in on the whispers of our hearts.

It’s said that energy flows where intention goes. To allow the seed of intention to flourish, release your intention. Let it go to, allow opportunities and openings to come your way. The universe is alive and will put the right people, places and circumstances in front of you when the timing is right until you have manifested your hearts desires.

“I have been a seeker and I still am, but I stopped asking the books and the stars. I started listening to the teaching of my Soul.” ~Rumi
