You wouldn't wish that someone had a car accident or failed a job interview. But, you are putting out intentions all of the time, not just when you do a special meditation for intentions. Knowing how the energy of your intentions affects the world around you can help you to be more mindful of what you are intending.
Beware of Your Creator Abilities
Once you tap into the intention and manifestation process, you become aware of how powerful a creator you are. As you continue to see the effects of doing intentions, you will find it more natural to do them. This is when you especially need to monitor those "accidental" intentions that you put out to the Universe.
- A manager you don't care for is up for a promotion and you think to yourself, "They don't deserve a promotion. It should never happen."
- Someone cuts you off in traffic and you think, "I hope they have a flat tire going to work!"
In each of these cases, you have just sent out the same energy to the Universe that goes out with an intention.
Being a Moral and Ethical Creator
The Universe is an impartial energy that doesn't judge your intentions, unless you request it to. The Universe will manifest your intentions no matter how dark or silly they may seem. If you aren't mindful of the intention energy you put out, you may create negative experiences for people that you really didn't mean to intend.
The key to preventing this is to be conscious of your thoughts toward others and watch for inadvertent intentions that come from your thoughts. You can also command the manifestation process to do a value-check of your intentions. For example:
- At the end of the day, you can do a brief meditation to send to the Universe the thought "All of my intentions today, including those sent out inadvertently, will be manifested for the highest good of all who are affected by them."
- When you do your formal intention process, include the phrase, "All of these intentions will be manifested for the highest good of all involved."
This energy does make the Universe evaluate your intentions and manifest them so they do no harm.
Become a Consciously Loving Creator
As you become a more enlightened intender, practice putting out positive intentions where you may have put out something negative before. For example:
- When the manager you don't like goes up for a promotion, have the thought, "This promotion will help this person become a better manager."
- When someone cuts you off in traffic, think to yourself, "That person will realize that by hurrying, they put themselves and others at risk in traffic."
When these thoughts spontaneously come from you instead of the negative ones, you're on your way to becoming an even more powerful creator.
