The Power of Intent

“Sending out a collective prayer of sincere thanks to all who have supported my journey. Hope I can do the same for others, paying it forward.” These were the last words I posted on the blog that appeared last Monday. Within hours of hitting publish, two things occurred:

  1. An old friend contacted me on FaceBook and asked for help, as her father was dying. She remembered that I used to volunteer in palliative care, and knew I’d have some words of comfort.
  2. The evening news reported that a number of Ukrainian refugees are being relocated to our area and the organizers are looking for host families. My husband and I immediately knew that we could offer this form of help and contacted the agency.

I set my intent, in print, and was answered. I like to think of that as the universe confirming I’m on the right track.

Have you had a similar experience? I’d love to hear about it.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

  1. Looking forward to hearing about the hosting of refugees. I don’t know if they will be relocated near us, but I have thought about having some here, I have room. I’d have to discuss it with my husband though, and that won’t always go the way I think it should.

    1. I was lucky my husband and I made the decision simultaneously. My neighbours have been mulling it over – needed more information – but have now also committed. All the best if you do. Let me know.


  2. That’s wonderful, VJ. There is so much science out there that confirms our brains are wired to find patterns – so our thoughts and intentions matter in setting what we’ll see. And then there’s the element of magic that also happens when we announce our intent.

    Somewhere in that beautiful of dance between science and magic, we tell our stories and inspire others to find the same. Thank you for the inspiration!
