“The second I decide something is done, it’s done. I just have to wait for all y’all to see it.”—Will Smith
Or in my case, I have to wait for myself to see it.
The minute I make an intention, it’s real, it’s a viable creation. But until I can feel it and actually “be it,” my intention stays on a vibrational plane that’s out of my sight.
Making intentions is never the problem. What we intend is already present. It’s just that you and me and everybody else is stubborn enough that we keep staring at its lack. Until we can catch up vibrationally, we are unable to see and enjoy our fabulous creations.
As I heard Esther Hicks once say, “We’ve already created enough joy and happiness for 20 or 30 lifetimes.”
I hope this is a comforting thought. That our only responsibility is to get ourselves tuned into the joyful vibration where blessings flow, to begin resonating to the vibrational catalog of fun, love and laughter. We literally have to distract ourselves from all thoughts and emotions that block the natural flow.
Most of us are really good at the first part of the equation. Making the intention. But the second part, the part where we get out of our own way and allow love and joy and the new Mercedes Benz into our sphere of awareness is often more problematic.
So for right now, forget about your intentions. Just focus on every brilliant, juicy, fun delicious thought you can think of. Be grateful for every little thing. That’s everything that even remotely resembles your intention and everything that doesn’t. When joy is the dominant emotion, you’ll be able to pull good things out of the air like magicians pull rabbits out of hats.
