Each day we receive a wonderful, miraculous, amazing gift called a new day. As we receive this gift each morning, we can decide how we will use it well. We can pause and consider how to honor this gift and use it to the best of our ability. This gift we receive each morning is too awesome to take for granted. It is too much to accept without realizing the magnitude of it. If someone gave us a large sum of money, we would surely take the time to consider what to do with it. The gift of a day is worth far more than any amount of money could ever be. There is nothing more miraculous than a day to turn into your masterpiece. All anyone can ever do to honor this Life we are given is to get up each day and do the best we can with our day moment by moment.
We can set a clear intention for ourselves each day. At the very least, knowing our intention will help us make better choices to match our truest desires and best character aspects as we navigate various situations and circumstances. At the highest level, setting our intention clearly each morning is like sending out prayer filled instructions to the Universe. The Universe hears our instructions and then begins arranging things to perfectly match them and bring us the circumstances that will allow us to live our creation. We are constantly sending out instructions whether we realize it or not. Things are arranging themselves according to our intentions. We can see the miracles and create beautiful things or we can miss the magic and stumble around accepting what comes without realizing we ordered it.
A few months ago, I gave the kids intention journals and encouraged them to write down their intentions each morning. We have had lovely discussions about their various intentions and how they can remember what they intended for the day as they make choices and deal with situations that arise. It is helpful for them to take responsibility for their actions and remember what they really want to do with their day and their character choices in general. My writing here is really about my intention to live what I know and help others as I go. When I gave the kids their journals, I thought I didn’t need one because I write about my intentions here. I recently changed my mind and got me an intention journal too. I am joining them in the practice of clearly stating my intentions in writing each morning. I love it so far. I learned about intention years ago, but I can see the power and supportive Universal energy in stating my intentions clearly each day. I am grateful for this practice, it will help me create the days I am meant to and hopefully send Love and abundant blessings out into the world through me. That is my dearest intention.
Wishing us all the courage to intend well and bless abundantly. Sending you love and joy.
