The Power of Prayer & Intention
For those of you who may not know, I have begun training with the Ford Institute to be certified as an Integrative Life Coach. This has already been an incredibly fulfilling and challenging process! I have had a few breakthroughs, found incredible inner resources of support, and have learned some powerful things along the way.
One thing I'd like to share with you is the concept of living with intention. So many of us get caught up in our daily lives, problems, stories, challenges & to-do lists, that we often go careening from one experience to the next, just getting through it and onward to the next thing, without taking a moment to stop in advance and ask ourselves: What's the best possible outcome for this next experience? Whether it's a meeting, conversation, class, shift of work, lunch with a friend, or the commute home, it empowers us in our lives to set an intention for it, and supports us in living more mindfully.
I see this come up a lot in Akashic Record readings for people, where their guides assign them a prayer to be spoken at the start of every day. It could be for protection, for healing, for success with a particular issue, but ultimately it's allowing us, first thing, to set an intention for our day, for our energy, and for our experience. It's encouragement to live more mindfully, to exercise our authority, and to determine the quality of our daily lives.
Remember that the power of prayer is the power of the spoken word, the power of our voices, of sound, so when you recite a prayer, do so with meaning for each word spoken, with emotional connection, and with intention.
Blessings to you all,
