Intentional Grids

What you are deciding to evoke when you begin is change. 
An Intentional Grid can instigate a change that is in line with your highest good, your truth and well being. Think of it as shifting your gaze in the direction of the light. Bring your attention to the experience, meaning do not build your grid and walk away. 
Commit wholly and unabashedly. Make a ceremony of creating your grid, take your time and contemplate each element you bring in and remember - everything is energy and that's all there is to it. What comes to pass was first imagined and then focused on with feeling and excitement. Select high quality crystals, minerals and natural objects that have meaning to you and speak to your philosophy and the life you wish to create for yourself. 

 

I must create a system or be enslaved by another's. -William Blake

Do not be bound by how others think you should be doing things. Do great minds really think alike? One of my trusted ones says actually a great mind thinks differently. Live from your own vision of greatness not another's. Think about what the concepts and words - individuality, freedom, creativity

really mean to you and only you.

And then the day came 
​when the risk to remain 
tight in a bud was 
more painful than the
risk to bloom. -Anais Nin

When we have dreams, goals, aspirations and intentions there are times when we feel stuck. Timing is not quite right, obstacles come up, people get in the way. And yet we know our purpose is to bloom. And so we wait, removing obstacles, cleansing dark corners and then the light pours in and our desire like a precious treasure is a living, breathing part of our life.

Far out to sea, a tuna fleet surrounded a group of spinner dolphins swimming over a school of tuna, catching them in a gigantic net. Small, powerful speedboats circled the animals, creating a wall of sound that disoriented and terrified the dolphins, who sank down silently into the net, only the movement of their eyes showing signs of life. But when a dolphin passed the cork line at the edge of the net, it knew it was free. It burst forward, propelled by powerful, wide tail strokes... it then dove, swimming at full speed... down and away into the dark water, only to burst from the surface in a high bounding series of leaps.
-Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson 

Wait and watch, all the while stay poised, aligned and focused. And then, then, make your move and there is no containing you, you are free. You are who you were born to be and you have made meaningful progress.

"I must learn to love the fool in me -- the one who feels too much, talks too much, takes too many chances, wins sometimes and loses often, lacks self-control, loves and hates, hurts and gets hurt, promises and breaks promises, laughs and cries. It alone protects me against that utterly self-controlled, masterful tyrant whom I also harbor and who would rob me of human aliveness, humility, and dignity but for my fool." -Theodore Rubin 

 

The inner life of any great thing will be incomprehensible to me until I develop and deepen an inner life of my own.
