I wear a wristband that says “my attention is on my intention”. It’s a concept that I thought I learned at my spiritual center, Heart and Soul Center of Light in Oakland, California.
I used it for big things and wrote affirmations. Until recently it never occurred to me to use it everyday and for everything.
I allowed myself to absorb the negative energy of others I encountered and then was not present and positive myself.
Simply by practicing setting an intention at every available opportunity I shift my focus and energy and remain positive and immune to absorbing the negative energy of others.
Setting an intention also helps me to be open to receive the positive energies of people as well as remain in a constant state of gratitude for my wonderful life.
It’s simply part of being mindful. As Andriette Earl, Senior Founding Minister of Heart and Soul often says, “try it, just for drill”. Try setting an intention at every opportunity, before you see your ex, before you see your children, before you eat, before you see a loved one, before you do anything.
And please let me know how it changes your outlook on life. It did mine.
