Setting a Clear Intention
by Katalin Koda

Llewellyn.com - January 2010

As the New Year approaches, our thoughts often turn to letting go of the old, making new plans, and forming New Year’s resolutions. The New Year is our chance to reinvent ourselves, to take stock of what we have experienced over the past year and what we hope to welcome in as the seasons turn. This year in particular, with its incredible changes in the political climate, the economy, and encroaching environmental problems, turning within and finding our personal spiritual sustenance becomes all the more important, necessary even, to maintain a balanced and positive outlook as things, materially, may be crashing down around us. One of the best ways to begin our new year, a new project or plan or even one new day is by setting a clear intention. By taking time to do this very simple act, we can start to reprogram our entire lives with a positive outlook and clarity. Setting a clear intention in our day, and more specifically healing, is just one of the concepts explored in Sacred Path of Reiki: Healing as a Spiritual Discipline.

Setting a clear intention is like shooting an arrow into the future. The more precise the intention is, the better the aim to hit your target. The purpose of setting an intention is the final destination and not the way we arrive. The journey usually unfolds in unexpected ways and being open to that makes it all the more interesting. We can set intentions for several reasons: to manifest abundance in our lives, to be more connected to a community that supports us, to change our livelihood, to open ourselves up to a more loving relationship. How this manifests specifically is not the important aspect of setting the intention. Again, thinking of our intention as an arrow, hitting a target, we look at the target, not the flight path. In the same way, once we have a specific intention we want to shoot into the Universe, we are calling that future, that dream towards us, pulling our destiny into the present moment.

When we decide to set an intention for our lives, it is best to do so in a positive, present and affirmative manner. We want to avoid negative intentions, such as ‘I will not eat sugar,’ but instead, “I intend a healthy and nurtured body.” In this way we are affirming a positive existence, not cultivating a sense of guilt or inadequacy. For example, instead of intending more money to flow into our lives, we might try to set our intention in a more present and joyous way, such as: “I am loving the abundance in my life.” This allows us to begin to shift out of a poverty mindset into one of abundance and wealth. Another way to look at this is, if you want more, desire less. Again we are attempting to pull our destiny, our deepest desires into a state of Nowness, of eternal presence that honors all of our being and our capacity to be overflowing with love and peace. We are shifting our way of looking at the world as a place that does not have enough for us, but instead is in a continuous abundance with us.

The Power of Secrets
by Donald Michael Kraig

The popularity of conspiracy theories seems to ebb and flow with the times, and right now there could not be more popular conspiracy books than those of Dan Brown. The author of The Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons has recently released his third book featuring symboligist Robert Langdon: The Lost Symbol. Dealing with Freemasonry and its "influence," how can myth be separated from fact? John Michael Greer's new encyclopedic Secrets of the Lost Symbol details, word for word and topic by topic, the truth of the who, what, when, and where of Dan Brown's The Lost Symbol.

UFOs and Alien Abductions: What is the Truth?
by Colin Wilson

For Colin Wilson, author of Alien Dawn, the idea of UFOs and flying saucers was a bit disturbing, because to him it seemed that the truth of space was beyond human knowledge. But with so many abductees coming forward and renowned scientists examining facts too compelling to be dismissed, what is the truth behind UFOs, aliens, and abductions?
