These first five years are entirely controlled by our subconscious which controls development and reasoning, and of course, can be attested to by any parent. And because of that fact, our core inbuilt programming also operates very much like a five-year-old child, very literal and very much lovingly built to please. Therefore, if you are focused on what is wrong with your health, "I'm sick, I'm unwell", your subconscious is only more than happy to prove you are right.
Transforming our health always, at some point, becomes about transforming our own internal conversation. Your intentions will always assist you in taking greater control of the health you desire. So here's how we can all start to turn it around.
A working definition for intention is: 'to have in mind a purpose or plan, to direct the mind, to aim.' Lacking intention, we sometimes stray without meaning or direction. But with it, all the forces of the universe can align to make even the most impossible, possible.
TRANSFORMING FEAR AND DOUBT INTO HOPE AND POSSIBILITY
Use intentions to transform the conversation around dreams from fear and doubt, to hope and possibility, followed by action and results. Without our dreams, all we have is our present reality. Reality is not a bad thing. We have to know where we are so we can design the appropriate strategy for getting to where we want to be. The challenge is our attitude around 'reality' and what being realistic has cost us. Often that's our passion and joy, our hopes and dreams.
WHEN SHOULD YOU SET AN INTENTION?
You could set an intention every day. Your intention could be to get healthy and physically fit, or to spend more quality time with loved ones. It can be specific and about something in particular or more like a quality, such as to be more relaxed or involved with life.
SETTING INTENTIONS TO FULFIL ALL YOUR DREAMS
Intention can be used for community or social issues, global events or (literally) in your own backyard. And this is not a new concept. For decades athletes have been utilising the mind and visualising their goals to achieve success.
SO HERE'S HOW YOU BEGIN
Before you get into or out of bed, set your intention for your health. This is not a wish or a want. Make this your reality now, even if you have to fake it until you make it. "I'm healthy, restored and recovered." Quantum physics tells us that what was once considered 'woo woo' is now our reality. We're built on particles of energy and that energy (which builds thought) creates our reality.
SO HERE ARE FOUR INTENTIONAL STEPS TO BEGIN TO CREATE THE HEALTH YOU DESIRE
This is the essence, the fundamental core, to health. For some, it has taken a lifetime to figure this out but it can begin by simply peeling back the layers to create a profound transformation.
As they say; "Be the change you wish to see in the world."
