7 Faces of Intention
How do you KNOW when you have your intention aligned with soul purpose? Dr Wayne Dyer shares 7 ways that show such alignment. These include:
Notice that all the above are not things. They are, each in their own way, an energetic response to being available to the Source of all Creativity, Kindness, Love, etc.
The power of intention is an experience of SILENT KNOWING.
Silent KNOWING starts when you invite the power of intention to be an active part of your everyday living experience. This inner knowing is a felt experience. I cannot describe it in words.
The way you KNOW it is working is through your feeling of Y-E-S. How you KNOW it is working is through awareness of the increase in the experience of the 7 Faces of Intention.
Face of Creativity

Creation designed you to express through uniquely. Your joy and fulfilment are in aligning how that creative expression to manifest into form through you. How you do this is to make your PRIMARY INTENTION alignment with soul. They express this primary intention in this way:-
Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.
Creation intended you into existence.
Creation loves to create. You are the highest expression of this creative dynamic on this planet. Creativity is not production. It is the flow of your energy of expression into form. It might be work. It might not be work.
Let the Beauty that you are be the work that you do—Rumi.
Creativity doesn’t mean you are a writer, poet, artist or musician.
Commit to becoming a full expression of what you love. You can be someone who loves to work with car engines. You might be someone who loves to work with administration.
The question you have to ask yourself is, “What brings me alive?” This is your responsibility not only to yourself but to the whole collective of which you are a part but never apart from.
Sometimes it takes darkness and the sweet confinement of your aloneness to learn anything or anyone that does not bring you alive is too small for you.—Sweet Darkness – David Whyte
Face of Kindness

As the Dalai Lama has said, “My religion is kindness.” This I think is a very under-rated virtue. Imagine if this were the focal point of the day for every one of us.
The energy of unkindness moves you away from the power of intention. This is because it expands the energy of separation rather than connection.
If you are unkind, the creative energy of The Force cannot flow as co-creation through you. Unkindness is like taking poison, hoping the other might die. It shuts down your energy system (Y-E-S)
When you extend, receive and observe kindness, it beneficially impacts the physical health and feelings of everyone involved!
A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees.—Amelia Earhart.
Choosing to be kind is a choice to have the power of intention active in your life.
Face of Love

When the Christian mystic Julian of Norwich (late 1342—after 1416) asked God to allow her to know the reason for Creation, the answer was:-
You want to know your Lord’s reason for creation. Know it well. The answer is Love.
Anyone graced a direct KNOWING of the Divine knows that the energetic intention behind the created universe is LOVE.
This is universal love. It is not the dualistic love experienced between people, other sentient being and things.
Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it. ― Rumi
The LOVE expressed from Divine intention is not personal.
Like the sun, it shines on everyone. The extent to which it aligns you with soul is the degree this Long-Time Sun shines through you.
You are the only one who blocks this universal love that is the energy of creation. It isn’t something you earn. You are created to express this revelation of universal Love.
When we are not in harmony with this intention to Love we are out of alignment with the Power of Intention. Hatred, anger and judgement are all energies that block our access to the life-giving energy of Love.
This face of intention that is Love intends only that we flourish and grow and become all that this Field of Intention uniquely designed us to become.
Face of Beauty

What else could a creative, kind, and loving intelligence be, other than beautiful.
Here is one of my favourite songs that invite you to remember The Face of Beauty.
Beauty is a way of Being in the world. It is a way of seeing. It is how mystics see. It is where you see and feel sacred unity rather than focus on the experience of personal separateness.
With Beauty before me, may I walk.
With Beauty behind me, may I walk.
With Beauty below me, may I walk.
With Beauty above me, may I walk.
With Beauty all around me, may I walk.
In our Western culture, we associate beauty with glamor.
Real beauty is alignment with Presence. This is the real way of feeling truly attractive. Beauty becomes you because it is who you already are.

Face of Expansion

I think this is one of the key dynamics of authentic connection to the Field of Intention. By expansion, I mean that you feel your life is expanding in every way.
You want to give it all away because you live from a never-ending sense of fulfilment. The paradox is that you have to be empty of your own agenda to fulfil the destiny you it creates you live.
This is the meaning of the Biblical statement
He who would save his life shall lose it. He who would lose his life for my sake shall find it.—Matthew 16:25
This is not an invitation to lose your life in a physical sense, but in a psychological sense. You give up the will to power for the Will to Love. In this way, you connect to the Field of Intention.
This force of intention manifests expands as creativity, kindness, love and beauty. It is the nature of the Field of Intention to be ever expanding. So when you are in alignment with it your only wish is to pour yourself away in gratitude.
Notice that this is a very different way of living.
It is the true way of the Law of Attraction. You become a magnet for these faces of intention, but you are not doing it or willing it. You are relaxing into a dynamic of receptivity and trust, which is the true expression of faith.
