The Importance of Intention

My husband does all the proofing of my writing. The other day he was proofing one of my Instagram posts. My husband says ‘It should say the intention, not your intention.’  When I explained to him that the word intention was being used as a verb he became confused.

That got me to wondering. How many people are reading my Instagram posts and wondering about what does intention mean when it is used as a verb. As we know verbs are used in a sentence to reflect some type of action. What does intention mean when it is used as a verb?

That is our topic for today.  What do we mean when we say “Set the Intention”  Setting the intention means silencing all the other noise in your head and focusing on a particular topic. An intention is a form of intense concentration.  When you say I set this intention, you are saying I am going to focus on this concept, idea or emotion.

In our example, we are setting our mind to writing about the topic of the day. As a result of setting our mind on this topic, our mind will focus on the topic. For this example, we could be discussing happiness. When you set your mind to thinking about happiness images, memories smells even can flood the mind. At that moment your mind is experiencing happiness.

At this moment when you feel the emotion is when you want to begin to write about the emotion.
