Lesson 6 Chapter 5

Setting Your Intention 

So As We Think, We Are

Whatever seeds are sown in the fertile soil of our minds, they will produce in kind. 

In turn how that soil, and whatever grows from it, is tended will determine the fruits produced.

What are your thoughts?

Those thoughts create your life.

Your Healthy Mindset

The Five Step Morning Practice (First Thing!)

  • Step One - Your first thoughts of the day need to be of gratitude. Gratitude sets the stage for all healing and a grateful heart produces positive actions and results. Nothing good comes out of an ungrateful thought.                                                                  "I am grateful for this day and the gifts it brings."
  • Step Two - Take several conscious breaths.        "I breath in the gift of life, my exhale is my gift back to Nature."
  • Step Three - Your first Love needs to be Life.       "I am in Love with my Life and my Life Loves me."
  • Step Four - Not one thought that someone else thinks about you matters, only your thoughts about you make a difference.      "Who I am and what I feel are a result of my own thoughts and no one else's"
  • Step Five - My Intention for this day is:__________________________.

Where Is Your Attention

Where you choose to place your attention is the beacon that guides the course of your life. This guiding principle is both a timeless truth and a universal law.

Consider for a moment: what captures your thoughts, what occupies your mind, what consumes your focus—these are the fertile grounds where intention takes root and flourishes. The intention you cultivate becomes the reality you live.

Worry, with its relentless grasp, is a formidable force. It is the fertile soil where seeds of anxiety sprout and multiply. When you pour your energy into the worries that plague your mind, you unknowingly water them, nurturing their growth. The very things you fret about will thrive and multiply, like a garden left unattended.

Likewise, anger, when given the center stage of your attention, invites more of its kind into your life. The universe responds to your vibrational frequency, and anger begets more situations and individuals that provoke your ire.

Yet, let us entertain a different perspective—a paradigm shift that places you firmly in the driver's seat of your destiny. What if your intention became a powerful beacon, illuminating the path toward your optimum health, success, and fulfillment?

Imagine, if you will, a canvas where you paint the vivid tapestry of your desires. See yourself thriving, brimming with vitality, and basking in the glow of achievement. This vision is the inception of reality, the inception of magic.

But remember, dear soul, it all begins within your mindset. If you cannot envision it, it cannot manifest. The alchemy lies within your intention—your unwavering focus on that which you seek to create.

Let us embark on a transformative journey. Write down that one thing which has weighed upon your heart, the obstacle that has cast a shadow upon your path. Draw an X through it, marking its end. Now, for the next five precious minutes, devote your undivided attention to writing down the most profound desires of your heart—the aspirations that resonate with your soul's longing.

In this sacred act of intention, you become the master of your destiny. Your thoughts are the brushstrokes that paint the masterpiece of your life, and with every stroke, you draw nearer to the vibrant tapestry of your most cherished dreams.

What is the story about you that you are telling to yourself and others right now?

The narrative of our lives unfolds not just through spoken words, but also in the eloquent language of our actions and demeanor. It's an intricate tale that we craft, a reflection of our inner world and the essence of our being. So, I ask you, dear soul, what is your story?

Sometimes, we might divert our gaze away from our own narrative, channeling our creative energy into weaving stories about others. It's like peering through a neighbor's window, speculating about their life's twists and turns. Yet, in this outward-focused narrative, we may inadvertently forsake our own purpose. While storytelling has its place, if it serves merely as a distraction from our unique path, it becomes a source of self-sabotage.

Our stories can emanate from the profound experiences and challenges we face. If our tales are birthed from the crucible of pain, we are essentially proclaiming that our suffering is an integral part of our life's mission. However, consider this: what if our stories were spun from the threads of well-being, joy, and abundance? What if our narrative mirrored a life imbued with vitality, happiness, and prosperity?

In the sacred pages of this week's assignment, I invite you to articulate your present narrative in three soulful paragraphs. As you embark on this introspective journey, envision yourself in a state of radiant wellness, boundless joy, and abundant blessings. Your story, written with intention and love, shall illuminate the path to your desired reality.

Elemental Affirmations

Wood's Affirmation

The potential anger and Irritation of the wood element is the same energy that initiates growth. The wood element is all about the power to grow, expand and be alive! If that energy is tripped and triggered towards anger, it instead becomes a destructive energy to oneself and those in close proximity. 

I use the energy of anger and irritation as the courage to grow, expand and be constructive.

Fire's Affirmation

The anxiety of the fire element is simply a powerful force that is consuming itself rather than experiencing life. The fire element is all about expressing the joy of life and bringing that light to others and the world. If that energy is trapped inside it consumes all joy and turns the body into a paralyzing oscillating mess.

I use the energy of my anxiousness to go out and experience the joy of being alive with a deep sense of gratitude!  

Earth's Affirmation

The worry of the earth element is focusing the energy on something that may happen in the future instead of what is happening in this moment. The power of gravity is the energy of earth to stay grounded and fully present in each amazing moment.

I use the energy of gravity to stay present in each moment and to reject the lure of the future, knowing everything I need is here and now.

Metal's Affirmation

The Sadness and grief experienced in the earth's element energy is actually holding on to the past and denying the contentment of the present. The true power of metal is the understanding that transition and letting go are not only necessary but beneficial.

I let go of the past, gaining energy, insight and wisdom. I know I am better now than yesterday and will continue growing into the best version of myself.

Water's affirmation

Life comes from water. This element is at the beginning and end of life as we know it in the physical realm. When imbalanced we may feel depressed or lacking in something... Money, energy, time, connections? Water represents abundance. When we rest and recharge, we are honoring this element. Depression is misreading the energy of water to rest and renew. In that regenerative mode our energy is still dynamic and flowing. 

I flow like a peaceful river rolling through life. I see life is abundant and I lack for nothing.

How To Hold On To A Positive Mindset

When practicing affirmations, creating a positive mindset and manifesting your dreams, it can seem that you can get to that place of positivity, but it doesn't hold. How do you stay in the flow of that energy?

  • Attitude of gratitude. When you find yourself slipping, be grateful, for everything. Especially the challenging stuff. If you can be grateful for the things that come across your path that trigger you, tear you down, make you feel bad, then you take away it's power to get you off track. You instead tap into universal love. By being grateful in all situations, you are saying you trust the process even if it isn't clear right now, you know that it will be and the best is coming your way.
  • Practice. Don't give up. Keep trying. Do the 5 step wake up every day. know your element and use the affirmations of your dominate element or the one that is challenging at the moment. Above all, continue to be grateful and don't ever give up.
