How to Let Your Intentions Shine to Attract Wealth

“Caregiving requires the intention of love, caretaking requires the intention of fear. Not acting in anger when you are angry requires the intention of love.” Gary Zukav

intention shine

The intention that you put behind the work or things that you do is important. It can determine how much overall wealth you ultimately enjoy. Hence, in order to redirect your intention appropriately, ask yourself if your focus is centred on: “what can I get out of this transaction or process” or on “how can I best serve others that enhances life itself?”

“What can I get out of this?”

With a thought like this, the focus is the end result. You are being goal-oriented.

Don’t be mistaken. There is nothing wrong with being goal-oriented. You are putting energy behind your dream to succeed.

Problem arises only when there is an excessive focus on the end result. You could feel drawn to doing a certain task only if you know that there is going to be a huge payoff such as money. However, even while performing the task, you are not happy. In the process, you are compelled to go into detailed calculations, careful logical analysis and weighted assessments. You would like to determine if it is worth your while.

In a state of imbalance, your giving becomes conditional. Eventually, you are not able to offer your product or service optimally, which affects your true ability to attract wealth.

On the extreme, there are some who are even willing to compromise on important values for the purpose of making money. I recall a time when I asked a network marketer about the quality of the program he was selling. He was trying to recruit me to be his down line. His answer to me was, “who cares? So long as I get to make lots of money.”

While I appreciated his honesty with me since we had just gotten to know each other, I was shocked at his response. Well, based on his answer, I chose not to join him in his venture. I would like to believe that his way is not the only one to creating wealth. I prefer to choose one that is aligned with purpose, integrity and authenticity.

“How can I best serve others in a way that enhances life itself?”

If you place your intention on providing value-added service or product, you will find work a lot more fulfilling. You place the needs of your customers as important. You are focused on making a difference. You have the highest intention for the people that you serve.

Note that it does not mean that you do not charge for your services and give your time away for free. You do need to make a living. However, there is an energy exchange relationship that needs to be honored. If you give yourself excessively, then it is possible to experience a leakage over time. You end up feeling bitter, exhausted and frustrated.

Since money is commonly used as a medium of exchange, you ask for an equitable value from your clients or customers. The amount they put in is an investment in you, your values and beliefs. The same holds true for anything that you provide. You may be an employee in an organisation, for instance.

Abundance is not just about how much money you make. It is beyond the cash that you have in the bank. Abundance is about the capacity to live fully as an expression of your divinity. You are able to express the truth of your being through the things that you do. You shine in brilliance!!

“Creation’s gold mine is in you. The key is deliberate intention. Whatever your dream may be at this moment, identify it. If you cannot define your desire, it can never become a reality.” Mary Manin Morrissey

Couldn’t agree more. It’s commitment vs. attachment. I am committed to the people I coach to having them get what they want out of life and I’ll be a stand for them getting what they want but being attached leaves you feeling disappointed and perhaps experiencing self doubt if the outcome is not the desired outcome.

Hi Nancy,

You made a great point about commitment vs attachment. Yes, we are committed to the work and service that we provide. But at the same time, we are mindful that we are not attached to the outcome for the wrong reasons.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts!

Abundance always,

I so agree with you about integrity and the universal exchange of energy that’s a win/win for all involved. Well said Evelyn.

I really like how you brought out the underlying thought that can go into business strategy — “What can I get out of this?” Much as one may want to contest this, ultimately there is something in each transaction that speaks to this. But, what I really appreciated was the phrase, “In a state of imbalance, your giving becomes conditional. Eventually, you are not able to offer your product or service optimally, which affects your true ability to attract wealth.”

This is so well said, and I have experienced this myself. “Conditional” nails it right on the head. It sets up a different type of “energy” around the transaction, and it affects business in a negative way. In essence, when business becomes “conditional,” it sets the stage for resentment and anger when people choose not to buy.

Great piece. Thanks for your insight!

Hi Victor,

I like what you said about “conditional” setting up a different type of energy around a transaction. When people choose not to buy or respond to our sales letter, it is normal to go into disappointment. We have to remind ourselves why we are putting up that offer in the first place. It is important to remember that there is a lesson in everything that does not respond in the way we desire or expect.

Love and abundance always,

This message resonates very well with me, Evelyn, thank you!

*There is an energy exchange relationship that needs to be honored.* – this is so true and *powerful*. When we give and receive with intention that is aligned with our heart truth, external opens and flows far beyond what we can imagine or expect, in wonderful, abundant ways as heart celebrates the creation and connection!

Hello Joy,

I am glad that you resonated with the message. Soul intention and heart love is so vital if we wish to experience more abundance in our lives!

To your brilliance,

Awesome points! It’s tough not to get attached to the outcome, but by doing so we may end up not even being satisfied when we arrive. Thanks for posting.

We can’t wait to feel good until some other time. Even if our goal is to feel better or have more abundance, it is the path that we are taking to reach that goal that we walk everyday.

When we walk this path with an intention of service,and a heart of gratitude, the way to the goal becomes as life fulfilling as the attainment of the goal itself., Thank you Evelyn, this is a perfect idea for today.

bikehikebabe,Welcome back! Good luck on your recovery.Actually I did a lot of folk dacning and some Scottish dacning before I managed to cajole Andy into taking square dacning lessons. He hadn’t been interested in dacning before that, so I had been going by myself. Once he got started in square dacning he loved it. We considered Scottish after we stopped the square dacning, but he wasn’t that interested and I got spoiled having him as a partner. We decided to stick with the round dacning.
