Preparing to move forward into a new year is an ideal moment to let go of limiting beliefs and express faith in grand ideals. Tony Burroughs, who has authored nine books including The Code: Ten Intentions for a Better World and The Intenders Handbook, suggests that committing to stated intentions is far more powerful than crossing off a list of New Year’s resolutions; such thoughts and words, consciously repeated, are constantly creating our future. His ten intentions are recounted for your enjoyment here:
The First Intent ~ Support Life
I refrain from opposing or harming anyone. I allow others to have their own experiences. I see life in all things and honor it as if it were my own. I support life.
The Second Intent ~ Seek Truth
I follow my inner compass and discard any illusions that are no longer serving me. I go to the source. I seek truth.
The Third Intent ~ Set Your Course
I begin the creative process. I give direction to my life. I set my course.
The Fourth Intent ~ Simplify
I let go, so there is room for something better to come in. I learn to trust by lining up with the highest good and knowing that I am guided, guarded and protected at all times. I am open to receive from expected and unexpected sources. I simplify.
The Fifth Intent ~ Stay Positive
I see good, say good and do good. I accept the gifts from all of my experiences. I am living in grace and gratitude. I stay positive.
The Sixth Intent ~ Synchronize
I am in the flow, fulfilling my desires and doing what I came here to do. Allowing beauty to guide me, I step into the present, where great mystery and miracles abide. I synchronize.
The Seventh Intent ~ Serve Others
I practice love in action. I always have enough to spare and enough to share. I am available to help those who need it. I serve others.
The Eighth Intent ~ Shine Your Light
I am a magnificent being, awakening to my highest potential. I express myself with joy, smiling easily and laughing often. I shine my light.
The Ninth Intent ~ Share Your Vision
I create my ideal world by envisioning it and telling others about it. I share my vision.
The Tenth Intent ~ Synergize
I see humanity as one. I enjoy gathering with lighthearted people regularly. When we come together, we set the stage for Great Oneness to reveal itself. We synergize. (Source: Intenders.com)
December, with its candlelit ceremonies and focus on giving, is a month traditionally imbued with the power of hope and promise as we gather with common purpose to celebrate our oneness. As we come together, let’s do so with the purest of intentions to support one another and see the Divine light in everyone.
So It Is Done.
