Using The Science of Intention Setting for Success at Work
According to many spiritual leaders and success gurus, good fortune, abundant health, love, and finance do not come to you by accident. You call them forth with your thoughts, actions, and intentions. And if you are not experiencing days filled with joy and fulfillment at work, it is likely that you only have your own subconscious mind to blame.
Many old, limited and toxic belief systems hide out in our subconscious mind and are secretly running the show of our lives. When you are focused on your current state of misery, scarcity, and ‘want,’ then you will receive more of the same. Yet merely by thinking of yourself as having joy and abundance at work, you will start the process to make it a reality and begin to attract the right resources and people to you.
Setting Your Intention
Start by taking a big picture approach to your goals and be specific. If you know what you want, don’t beat around the bush. Boldly ask for it. Saying “I am a confident and detail-oriented senior copywriter” leaves little question as to what you are trying to accomplish. When you acknowledge the direction you’d like your career to shift, you can start to approach your workday with a whole new sense of being — every action you make throughout the day starts to change with your intention in mind.
Rephrase your goals in a positive way that brings you even closer to what you want. Saying “I am happily employed at the job of my dreams” will eventually help you figure out what those dreams actually are.
Even thinking through your intention helps you get really clear on what you might want out of your job, which in turn helps you make clear decisions that are focused solely on that goal. You might start to ask yourself “Does this new project I am taking on serve my intention?”
Give these mantras a try
Repeat these to yourself daily or write them down in a journal.
- I am confident in my skills and will keep an open mind when new challenges arise.
- I am getting a new job that inspires me to challenge myself and that makes me happy.
- I am focusing my energy on what I can accomplish in the present moment and not dwelling on mistakes from the past.
- I am successful in everything I set out to accomplish.
- I am a valuable asset to the company.
Science of How Intentions Work
When you say a mantra and/or intention it creates an energetic pattern in your consciousness. Extensive research has been developed by Dr. William A. Tiller where he measured the frequency of intention using a crystalline-based silicon technology. His research has shown evidence that directed human intention can increase or lower the pH of water by 1 point, the growing of larvae at a 30% increased rate, and the killing of bacteria at a 30% increased rate.
Science explains the power of intention using quantum physics and the idea of information entanglement. Think of time as an imaginary distance. Entanglement occurs when two particles are deeply linked where one particle can instantaneously influence the other even at great distances non-locally. Subtle energies can travel faster than electromagnetic light.
“For the last four hundred years, an unstated assumption of science is that human intention cannot affect what we call ‘physical reality.’ Our experimental research of the past decade shows that, for today’s world and under the right conditions, this assumption is no longer correct. We humans are much more than we think we are and Psychoenergetic Science continues to expand the proof of it.”
– Dr. William A. Tiller
Is there a difference between quantity and quality of intention?
If you’ve ever tried meditating you know that training your mind to focus on a specific thought or idea takes work. Just thinking of an intention once for a few seconds won’t create as strong as an energetic pattern in your consciousness as if you were to do it daily for a set amount of time.
20 Eckhart Tolle Quotes to Center Your Heart
Stressed? Worried? Unfocused? Life does that to you when you’re not staying mindful and grounded. Luckily, great teachers like Eckhart Tolle are there to help us remember where our mind should be.
Carve out a little time to meditate on some of these great words from Eckhart Tolle for a quiet moment of peace:
On Being You
-“Give up defining yourself — to yourself or to others. You won’t die. You will come to life. And don’t be concerned with how others define you. When they define you, they are limiting themselves, so it’s their problem. Whenever you interact with people, don’t be there primarily as a function or a role, but as the field of conscious Presence. You can only lose something that you have, but you cannot lose something that you are.
-“Being must be felt. It can’t be thought.”
-“You do not become good by trying to be good, but by finding the goodness that is already within you, and allowing that goodness to emerge. But it can only emerge if something fundamental changes in your state of consciousness.”
-“If you get the inside right, the outside will fall into place. Primary reality is within; secondary reality without.”
-“If your mind carries a heavy burden of past, you will experience more of the same. The past perpetuates itself through lack of presence. The quality of your consciousness at this moment is what shapes the future.”
