Alignment, Ease, Energy & Flow: intention

Imagine we are sitting together, perhaps at a cafe or in a park. Maybe you’ve got a nice coffee or tea in hand. And we’re having a lovely conversation.

And now imagine I ask you: What is your intention?

You’d probably ask, What do mean? My intention for what? About what?

You’d probably want more clarity about the question. Fair enough.

So I ask you with curiosity, just simply: What is your intention for today?

Now, perhaps this all starts to feel like a trick question. And maybe you don’t have an explicit intention for today.

And because you know I’m into Law of Attraction, perhaps you’re try to frame your answer in an LoA context. Or maybe you just tell me what’s on your schedule for the day—what you plan to get done. Your intention is to do your expense reports for work and go to the gym and pick up the birthday gift for your cousin.

Many of us have intentions on our radar at the start of a new year. For some there has been a shift from making New Year’s resolutions to setting intentions.

I’ve had a number of clients share with me that those intentions they set at the beginning of the year have now faded away. Gotten lost in the shuffle of everyday life.

So they didn’t really start today with an intention beyond going to work, feeding the kids, running the errands, attending the meeting, walking the dog.

The day unfolds. Some things go smoothly, others don’t. There is some of what is wanted and there is also some of what is unwanted in the mix. It’s just an ordinary day.

There are moments that feel good and there is also negative emotion. Like I said, just an ordinary day.

Without explicit intention, there is this quality to the day that makes how you feel dependent on how things go.

  • If things go smoothly, you feel good.
  • If things don’t go smoothly, you feel some flavor of bad.

In other words, without intention it can be easy to let circumstances dictate how you feel, where you are on the emotional scale.

Letting circumstances dictate how you feel is a no-no when it comes to Law of Attraction.

By a no-no, I mean, it’s simply not good for deliberate creation.

Abraham says very simply: “Let your intention be: I want ease and flow on all subjects in my life.”

Now notice this intention has nothing to do with the specifics of what’s on your calendar or what in particular is going to unfold for you today. It doesn’t matter what season of life you’re in or what situations are going on for you right now.

It’s the most beautifully functional and useful intention because it’s all-encompassing, ever-present. It’s always going to apply. To every person. To all situations. All the time.

Your life may look very different from mine. And mine from the next person. But we can all be guided by this intention: I want ease and flow on all subjects in my life.

This intention can always apply no matter what is going on in your life, no matter what your past has been, no matter what your desires are. You can intend to experience ease and flow—about work and relationships, about health and money, about all the subjects in your life.

This intention always, always applies.

Ok, so it applies, but why is this intention useful when it comes to Law of Attraction? What’s the payoff of living this intention?

Well, it’s all about the creative energy of those two juicy words—ease and flow. Because ease and flow are the shining stars when it comes to attracting, to manifesting.

“Soon you will stand in knowing amusement that all of this was always there within your reach, but in your resistant state of attraction, you were not yet able to experience it…but then, it came—not because of your struggle but because of your ease.” —Abraham

The manifestations you desire come into your life experience when you allow them. Ease is a pathway to allowing. “It came—not because of your struggle but because of your ease.”

The opposite of ease, struggle, is energy that blocks manifesting.

The more you struggle to get what you want—the abundance you want, the relationship you want, the goals you want to achieve and shiny pennies you want to acquire—the more you struggle to get what you want, the more you disallow what you want.

Bottom line: The energy of struggle blocks manifestations.

Ease is the pathway to what you want. Struggle is not.

“Everything is unfolding perfectly, and as you relax and find ease in your attitude of trust knowing that well-being is your birthright, amazing things will happen.” —Abraham

This is why living by the intention of ease on all subjects in your life is so beneficial, is what allows Law of Attraction to work to your advantage.

Here’s an example of this concept: When your boss sets a new, more immediate deadline for the project that you’re already behind on, your knee-jerk reaction might be that’s impossible, it’s so unfair, it can’t be done. You dig into the energy of the problem of the deadline and perhaps the problem that is your boss.

You believe it will be hard to meet the new deadline.

“When you believe something is hard, the Universe demonstrates the difficulty. When you believe something is easy, the Universe demonstrates the ease.” —Abraham

What I’m describing in that knee-jerk reaction is the energy of struggle, of resistance.

It is letting circumstances—the boss moving up the deadline—dictate how you feel—which is angry and overwhelmed and worried.

But what if your intention is: I want ease and flow on all subjects in my life?

If you want ease and flow, if your intention is ease and flow, that automatically turns you energetically, vibrationally in a different direction.

The moment you tap into your intention of ease and flow, you start orienting to the solution rather than the problem. Your intention of ease and flow put you on the pathway of support from the Universe. Support you can start to notice and feel.

Ease and flow feel good. Struggle doesn’t feel good.

That probably sounds super obvious, but it’s worth emphasizing because when your intention is ease and flow, you are also saying, It is my intention to feel good.

And Law of Attraction 101: How you feel that is the vibration you are offering to which Law of Attraction is responding. And so feeling good is your super power to attracting what you want. To allowing the manifestations you desire.

“Not going with the flow is at the heart of every negative emotion you feel. When one stops fighting the current and lets the force turn them around and push them downstream, they will feel relief.” —Abraham

I think this idea is so eye-opening—that at the heart of every negative emotion is some element of not going with the flow. I’ve started when I experience negative emotion, to sometimes explicitly check in with myself and ask, How am I not going with the flow right now?

It’s uncanny how it proves to be true. No matter what the negative emotion—disappointment, worry, frustration, impatience, doubt, anger—whatever the negative emotion I’m experiencing, I can connect the dots and see how it relates to some aspect of me not going with the flow.

“You are extensions of Source Energy. And when you allow that pure Source Energy to flow through you, you are so bright and beautiful; your timing is good; and you feel vital and alive in your body. And as others, see you, they wonder what your magic is. But it only seems like magic because it is experienced by so few. It isn’t magic. It is available to everyone. But you must allow your alignment.” —Abraham

You must allow your alignment. Another way to say this is you must allow yourself to feel good.

And if you always or even often allow circumstances to dictate how you feel, then that is not really allowing yourself to feel good.

But when your intention is ease and flow, when your intention is to feel good, then you will choose thoughts that allow your alignment. Regardless of what else is going on in your life.

“We want to show you how to go with the flow. Which means nothing more than finding vibrational harmony with your own desire, and letting the Universal Energy that your desire is summoning to it flow to it though you. It is optimum creative experience.” —Abraham

Will you embrace this simple, yet of-so-powerful intention: I want ease and flow on all subjects in my life.

These words have become a sort of mantra in my head: ease and flow, ease and flow.

Do I perfectly live my intention of ease and flow? Certainly not! But I love the north star of this intention. It always holds the possibility of orienting me, of guiding me, of supporting me.

The same is true for you.

“It’s a matter of enjoying your own experience, enjoying the flow that happens and not getting too far out ahead of it and trying to make it into something right away. Enjoy it as it flows—enjoy it as it flows until it’s just second nature for it to flow, flow, flow, flow, flow until your just tuned-in, tapped-in, turned-on all the time.” —Abraham

So say it with me: I want ease and flow on all subjects in my life.
