Identifying Your Dreams And Desires

Mar 27, 2008
Writing your intentions down is critical to your success. Writing has a magic ability to crystallize your intention and also provides a great method to place great amounts of focus and attention upon your desires.

Napoleon Hill, author of Think and Grow Rich believed that writing your intentions down was one of the most critical stages in the manifestation process. Without it, one would fail to achieve the desire.

At first glance, identifying your desires sounds like a very easy task. Most would say, "I want more money," or "I want a bigger home." These are perfect desires to have, yet they lack any substantial detail. For example, let's say for a moment that you do manifest a bigger home, but this new home you manifest does not have a kitchen. A very basic necessity to any home, yet because you didn't define it, you weren't given it. Or perhaps the home you manifest is bigger, but it requires more work to be done and isn't what you want.

As soon as you give birth to a new desire, the Law of Attraction immediately begins working in your favour. As you begin to define the details of your desire, the Law of Attraction responds accordingly to incorporate your new asking.

The best way to get involved with the specifics of your desires and to determine exactly what you really want is by making an intention list. An intention list is as it sounds, a list of everything you want, dream of or desire.

You'll probably want to make many intention lists, but for now focus on one desire per list. Grab a sheet of paper and title the page with your desire. Next, draw a line down the middle making two sections. On the right hand side, start listing everything that you do not want. We are conditioned to focus upon the negative aspects of a situation instead of the positives, so identifying what you don't want should be a breeze!

Let's say your desire is a new relationship. You begin to list everything that you do not want, such as:

* Spending night's home by myself
* Doing all of the cooking and cleaning on my own
* Someone who watches the football all of the time
* A poor listener
* Not very romantic

On the left hand side of the page, you then write the polar opposite to what you said you didn't want.

Not very romantic >> becomes >> Romantic & loving
A poor listener >> becomes >> Listens to my suggestions

By focusing on what you do want, instead of what you don't want you are able to tell the Law of Attraction in detail how you want your desire to be.

Now that you've got your list, make good use out of it. Grab a new sheet of paper and write out all of those positive things that you want. We no longer need those old negatives dislikes in our life, so it's best you throw that old piece of paper in the trash.

With your new list of positive aspects around your desire, place the list somewhere that you will look often. Maybe you could put it in your bathroom, bedroom, toilet, office or kitchen? Or perhaps you will check your handbag or wallet more often? Put the list where you will see it frequently. At least twice a day read your intentions list to yourself.

What you want to do now is to really get into the feeling as if you've already got your desire with all of the details you've specified. This can be as long or as short a process as you make it to be - as long as you're feeling the feelings as already having it then your work is complete.

You will quickly discover that an intention list will be something you always want to keep around. They are great fun to write, fun to read, and most importantly, all of that fun will eventually transmute into manifestation!
