Intention




Anybody looking for a good read... a good book to work with? I came across this book last night at work. It was just published last month by Sera Beak. "A deliciously unorthodox approach to igniting your divine spark". Love that! It turns out the author, at 30, has had some amazing life experiences and is really inspiring. She has a fab web site and says her blog will be up in a couple of weeks. The Red Book idea started when she was 26 and kept a journal for her personal creative "prayers". She used phrases and collage to express her divine spark. This book is full of wit and humor and I think I'm gonna dive right in. I'm going to turn this book into my "red book" and work through it.

The first step is to state your intention, so here's mine.

I intend to live my life with creative abandon
Footloose and fancy free!
Be present
Be aware
Know my true self and celebrate her
Answer the question, "is that all there is?" with NEVER--there's always more!

Thanks for bringing this book to my attention. I work a lot with intention and was playing with the idea of starting an intention/manifesting art journal. Now I'm set on the idea and that book looks like fun and sassy inspiration. I've just ordered it and can't wait for it to reach me ;-)

Way cool!

Looks like quite the original and inspiring book.

Intention is SO powerful. I totally know how to make it work for me, and yet it's amazing how often I forget to use it. We humans are so silly :)
