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:

Desire

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

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.

Intention

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.
