Write Your Own Healing Intention

Aug 17, 2007
Intention can have a powerful effect on healing. Our intentions focus our purpose and provide direction for our actions which moves us in a direction of health and well-being. Intention should be the basis of any healing program. It is simple to do, requires little time and effort but can yield powerful results. Anyone can use healing intention by following a few simple steps.

Focus on the Positive

Begin by thinking about the positive aspects of your health rather than getting caught up in the negative. For example imagine what it would feel like to be healthy and pain-free. Think of a few words to describe this. Some examples would be words like "well, happy, flexible, energetic, peaceful, rested, and at ease." It is important to focus on the positive instead of using negative words like "pain, fatigue, achy, headache, sad, irritated." It is thought that negative language gives your problem energy while positive language gives your health energy.

Write Your Intention Down

It is important to bring your intention from the non-physical world of ideas into the material world. This is done by writing your intention on a piece of paper or keyboarding it on your computer. By doing this you help to solidify your intention in the real world. You also strengthen your commitment to heal. Once your intention is written you can read it and think about it often.

Your Intention Must Make a Deep Connection within You

Avoid superficial statements and try to get at the essence of your healing. Sometimes it takes a good amount of reflection and development to produce an intention that connects with you on a deep level. Spend some time writing and rewriting your intention until you feel that it truly represents your positive thoughts about healing.

Hold Your Intention in Consciousness Each Day

Once you have written your intention you must use it. You will need to spend some time each day thinking about your intention. This can be as brief as a few minutes or as long as you wish. The best time is right after waking up in the morning and right before bedtime. Practicing meditation or relaxation techniques such as deep breathing can help to maintain your focus. This should be done daily because we are bombarded by information and tend to forget and lose focus.

Practice Healing Intention with Gratitude

Lastly, do this with a sense of gratitude for your life and health. There are scientific studies that say people who are grateful live happier, healthier and more fulfilling lives. Gratitude helps us to focus on the positive to be grateful for what we have in the present. You can include a statement about gratitude in your healing intention.

Healing intention can focus your healing and help you to maintain a positive state of mind. You can use healing intention for others too. If you are a practitioner you can practice with healing intention and help your patients. Intention is simple, requires little time and energy and should be a part of everyone's healing.
