Mastering Desire, Will and Intention

Mastering Desire, Will and Intention

“You are what your deepest desire is. As is your desire, so is your intention. As is your intention, so is your will. As is your will, so is your deed. As is your deed, so is your destiny.”

― Upanishads

What is Creative Manifestation?

We are creators and that means we are more than artists or writers. We co-create our experience through our thoughts, our words, our deeds, and our will. Everything we do is a creative act. So our choice becomes do we do this consciously or based on habit and previous programming?

Components of Manifestation

There are three key components to creative manifestation:


From a mindfulness perspective, there are two distinct types of desire. The first is the desire of a wanting mind. It is a thirst that feels it can only be satisfied by something outside of the self. In Buddhism, this would be one of the mind poisons. It is this type of desire that keeps you stuck in the cycle of birth-death- re-birth. This craving is looking to be satisfied, we partake in the desire, we feel a brief sense of satiety and then we repeat the cycle over again.

The second type of desire is the desire to do. This is our want to be connected to something bigger than ourselves. It is about bringing what is within ourselves into the outer world. There is a palpable sense of energy and inspiration about participating in a way that creates something meaningful. Desire is the driving force behind our actions so the question becomes does the wanting come from a place of lack or does it come from a place of adding meaning?


Will is a bit harder to define, but it is the power source composed of two distinct characteristics. It is emotion aka the desire coupled with conscious choice. So the desire to do added to the power of choice gives us will.


Our intention is the container for our will and desire. The ultimate ideal or the big picture of what it is we want to see come to fruition. It is a single word or phrase that unifies the desire, choice and deed.

How to Create What We Desire?

By combining all of the above components we can co-create our world. We need to understand the story around our desire. Why do we want what we want? Does it come from the desire to do or the desire to satisfy? Once we understand our story, we develop meaning. When something becomes meaningful to us i.e. we understand how it fits our worldview and value system, then we make choices in alignment with them. This is an expression of our will. If all of this is done with a unifying intention and we are consistent in the expression of our desires, will, deeds and intention – we consciously co-create our reality.

This meditation is part of the weekly Living Light Meditation gathering in the Chaos & Light Community. In this meditation, we use sacred geometry and joy to activate our highest creative potential. You will use the flower of life image on the screen in conjunction with the meditation, so it is best if you view it on a bigger screen. If you want to listen to the audio-only, then just imagine the flower of life in your mind’s eye when directed. (Music Credit: LATEX_music)



Earth Healing Meditation

Earth Healing Meditation

We are living in a time of great upheaval. It is easy to feel helpless when we witness so many challenges around us. There are many actions we can take in real-time, but we can also take action energetically. In this earth healing meditation, we begin by cleansing and clearing the pranic core, followed by the creation of a ball of light. We then use this ball of light to send balance, wholeness, and harmony to the earth and all of her inhabitants.

How Do You Create a Ball of Light?

This is a common technique practiced when learning a new energy modality such as Reiki or Healing Touch. A person begins by focusing on the breath and using a centering or grounding technique. This could be as simple as a few deep mindful breaths. Then, begin rubbing your hands together to build up heat and energy between them. Then, with the hands facing each other, move them slowly apart and then slowly back together until they are almost touching. Repeat this motion of moving the hands apart and toward each other until you can feel a sensation starting to build between them. As this feeling builds, allow the distance between your hands to continue to grow and then only move them together up to the point that you feel the sensation.

Some people describe this resistance/sensation as warmth, a tingling, or the feeling when two magnets repel each other. To amplify the sensation, it is helpful to imagine your breath moving out your hands on the exhalation.

Healing the Earth

Once you have created a palpable ball of light between your hands, you can send this accumulated energy to the earth for her healing. Imagine seeing the earth between your hands and see/feel/sense the earth receiving the healing light, energy, and intelligence needed to restore balance. You can also use this technique to send healing light, energy, and intelligence to another person too. Asking that they receive it in their highest good and the highest good of all.

Flowing with Change Meditation 3 – 2020_04_20 17.57

This guided meditation is to help people to deal with nervous or unsettled energy. It begins with using the breath to move the energy out of the body. Followed by imagery that helps the listener connect with the natural world as they sit by a babbling brook. The listener is then instructed to become the water and learn to flow with change. This is also a great meditation for those that want to work with the element of water. It is best listened to while sitting and with the use of headphones.

Flowing with Change (script)

Copyright Angela Levesque 2019 – Feel free to use for personal use.

Find a comfortable place to sit with your bare feet flat on the floor and your back supported. Close your eyes and begin to follow your breath. Drawing the breath deep down into the belly.  Exhaling slowly and completely.

Now bring your attention and awareness to the top of your head. Breathe in slowly as you move your awareness down your face and into your shoulders. Letting the muscles of your face release and relax. Pausing for a moment at the shoulders and the neck. Noticing the subtle movement of your shoulders at they rise and fall with the breath.

On the next inhalation move your awareness down into your chest. Let your breath fill the rib cage and on the out-breath, move into a deeper space of rest and calm. Now move your breath and awareness into your lower abdomen and hips. As you slowly breathe in, let the area fill and expand with the breath and release slowly and completely on the exhalation.

Now allowing your awareness and your breath to flow down into the legs, letting the thighs soften as the breath moves through them.  Now let your awareness and breath continue to flow over the knees and into the lower legs. Again noticing that with each breath you move into a deeper space of rest and calm.

And finally now allowing your breath and awareness to flow all the way down the body and into the soles of the feet and out into the earth beneath you. I’d like you to do a scan of your body – slowly moving your awareness from the top of your head down to the soles of your feet.

Is there anywhere you are holding onto extra energy? This energy might take the form of restlessness or the feeling of wanting to move or fidget. It’s the same energy that has you checking your phone or feeling ungrounded. Take a moment to acknowledge that feeling, and just witness it. Do not try to change it or satisfy it, just let the restlessness be in your consciousness for a moment or two.

Now returning to the breath, see if you can take that restless or nervous energy and fold it into the breath. Letting the energy get swept up in the breath and then letting it flow out of the body with each exhalation.

As you fold that nervous or restless energy into the breath, you are letting the breath provide a vehicle for its release. And with each subsequent of exhalation, you move into a deep place of calm, peace and relaxation.

Now we are going to take this practice one step further and as we learn to flow with change.

Now I want you to imagine sitting safely on a log at the edge of a babbling brook. Your feet are in the cool but comfortable water. There is a faint scent of wildflowers in the air. You can feel the warmth of the sun on your face and a sense of peace in the body. As you breathe in, your whole being softens and expands with the breath. And as you breathe out, a deep sense of comfort and ease flows down the body and into the brook.

Just take a few moments to be really present and take in these beautiful surroundings.

I want you now to focus on moving your breath into the babbling brook. Taking in each breath and allowing it to flow down the body and into the brook. As you do this you feel a deep connection between you and the natural world. You understand that you and the natural world are not separate but part of each other. And as the brook flows gently by, allow yourself to surrender to the flow. Connecting yourself to the natural flow of life.

Now I want you to expand your awareness slightly, seeing if you can be the water for a moment. To explore what it would feel like to flow with ease. Not moving to fast or too slow – Just flowing at the perfect pace, in the perfect time.

And just like the breath, allow the water to be a vehicle for any unwanted energy. Letting the pent up energy be released by the breath and flow out and away in the water. Letting the water carry away any stress, or stagnant energy leaving you feeling refreshed and balanced.

Take a few moments and move with the water, letting it take what you no longer want to hold onto and allow yourself to receive rejuvenation and peace in its place.


Now I want you to bring yourself back to sit on the log at the edge of the brook. Feeling the cool comfortable water on your feet and the warmth of the sun on your face. Notice the deeper sense of connection between you and your surroundings. The deeper sense of peace and groundedness. Remembering that you can come back to the flow of water anytime your life seems too hectic or out of control knowing that you can come back to this movement of ease and grace.

So much of our suffering comes from trying to stop the flow, to stifle the restlessness, but relief comes from being able to flow with change. By connecting to the movement of the natural world and seeing our ability to do so with ease and grace.

Now bring your awareness back into your body as you sit in the chair. Feel the firm ground beneath your feet. Take a deep breath to bring you back to your body. Become aware of your surroundings and when you feel ready, opening your eyes, aware, and alert.

Deep Healing Guided Meditation

Deep Healing Guided Meditation

This is a very deep healing guided meditation that takes you through 4 layers of healing. The first is a basic clearing and cleansing of the energy body. Followed by bathing the body and auric field in golden light. Then we instruct the body to absorb the full spectrum of light frequencies needed for deep healing and repair. Finally, we connect the body back to its divine blueprint to receive the intelligence and instruction it needs to bring the body back to its perfect divine state. You can move through all four layers or stop playback wherever you feel complete and work your way through the layers.

Meditation Script

Copyright Angela Levesque 2017

Begin this meditation lying down, so you can allow the body to completely surrender into the healing process. Make sure you can be undisturbed for the next 30 mins.

Begin now, by bringing your attention to your breath. Breathe in deeply and slowly, allowing your belly to be soft as it expands with the breath.

Then exhale slowly, letting your body relax on the out-breath. Take a few deeps breaths this way.

Now I just want you to breathy naturally, finding your own rhythm, your own pace to your breath. Notice the rise and fall of the rib cage, the quality, and depth of the breath.

Now bring your awareness and attention into your root chakra at the base of your tailbone. Feel the warmth and centering of this point in the body. Then, imagine a white cord of light growing down from the root toward the center of the Earth. Take a moment to really feel the cord as it moves through the ground, through the earth’s crusts, and deep into the core. Take a moment to deeply connect with the energy of the earth.

On the next few in-breaths draw that energy up back up into the body. See and feel the white light as it travels back into the root chakra. Allow yourself to feel grounded, connected, and centered.

Now I want you to visualize the white light moving up the midline of the body, all the way up to the crown chakra at the top of the head. As you inhale draw the white light up following the length of the spine to the crown and then as you exhale let the light flow back down the spine to the root chakra. As the light moves upward, see it move through the main chakras of the body. Letting the white light cleanse and clear anything unwanted from them. Do this for 3 or 4 more breaths.


Now I want you to imagine a small plug next to the root chakra just outside the body. This plug is like you would find in a bathtub drain. Open the plug let anything unwanted go down the drain. Letting go of any thought forms, emotions, beliefs, stress anything that does not serve you at this time. Just let it flow down, out and away through the drain.

When you feel this process is complete, put the plug back in and take a few deep breaths in the body. Taking a moment to again to be mindful of your grounding cord and your connection to the earth

Now I want you to expand your field of awareness to slightly beyond your body. I want you to become aware of your auric field which extends about 2-3 feet beyond your body. Take a moment to explore the boundaries of this egg-shaped field that surrounds you. See if you can connect to the boundaries with the breath.

As your awareness expands to the outer edges. I now want you to imagine breathing in golden light and exhaling this golden light to fill your auric field. With each breath, your auric field fills up with golden light.

Knowing as you do this, that the light provides deep healing, and rejuvenation to you.

Now let this golden light continue to be in your auric field, while you shift your attention into your body.

See this golden light move into the body and fill the heart.

With each beat of the heart, see the golden light being pumped into every artery, every organ, every vessel. Let every cell be bathed in this beautiful healing light.

Take a moment to see and feel every aspect of your being illuminated from the inside out with golden light. Spend a few moments in this awareness.


Now I want you to release the image of the golden light, knowing that it has completed its healing work within you.

I know want you now to imagine a beautiful white light shining outside your auric field. Take a moment to see this white light outside the aura. Now imagine as the light reaches your egg-shaped auric field, the white light separates into all the colors of the rainbow. Like you would see watching sunlight shine through a crystal. Let your auric field fill with deep reds, oranges, yellows, greens, blues, and violet. See all the colors of the rainbow within your auric field.

Allow your body to absorb what every color and frequency it needs to return it to a balanced and harmonic state.

Notice what colors your body and auric field are absorbing, is there one more than others. Know that there is divine wisdom and intelligence in this light and the higher self knows exactly what it needs to return to balance and harmony.

Finally, seeing yourself shining as a beautiful rainbow body. ———–

Now release those colors and frequencies knowing they have completed their healing work within you.

I want you now to expand your awareness again to the outer aspects of your auric field. Here you visualize a projection of your body as a hologram in front of you. See a holographic template of your physical body. This projection of yourself is your divine blueprint. Think of your divine blueprint as your soul’s DNA. All levels of consciousness are held within this template. Take a moment to scan this projection of yourself. Knowing that it contains all of the information, intelligence, and instructions for yourself in the perfect divine state.

I want you to invite that divine blueprint, that projection of yourself from its place right in front of you, and ask it to merge with your physical being. As the hologram moves towards you, watch it spread out in a beam of light and let that light merge with every layer of your being. Letting the light and all the intelligence it contains become one with you. Let the information and intelligence of this divine blueprint restore and rejuvenate every aspect of your astral, mental, emotional and physical bodies.

Spend a few minutes breathing deeply as the integration process occurs. Feel and see the light move through every level of your being. Letting your divine blueprint encode your physical & energetic self with all the information and intelligence it needs for deep healing. Restoring you to a state of wholeness and perfection.

When it feels right, invite and allow the divine blueprint to continue the integration process over the next few days and weeks.


Now bring your attention back into the heart center knowing it has all the wisdom it needs for deep healing and rejuvenation – mind, body and spirit.

Breathe deeply in the heart center. Feel into your body. How does it feel? Spend a few breaths just noticing.

When you are ready, I want you to bring your full attention back into the room, back into the body. Begin to wiggle the fingers and toes. When you feel complete, open your eyes.
