The Power of Intention
Reading to Elephant from ďAshes and SnowĒ

action or to gain an answer to a question you may be seeking.

your intention visually,
in your mindís eye, picture what your life will be like once the
intention has already manifested. Hold
the intention in your heart, and send
positive emotions around these visualizations as well.
If you canít create
strong positive emotions, then
there is no real desire. Intentions
without desire will have very
little power to manifest.
within 24-72 hours of putting out a new intention, you may experience an alpha
reflection. You may receive validation
the intention has taken hold. This usually takes the form of a very noticeable synchronicity.
Sometimes the synchronicity is part of manifesting the results; other
times it just seems to be an acknowledgement

this begins more than a week after the intention is first formed.
Whereas the alpha reflection is just an acknowledgement that the
intention has been received, the beta reflection is the substantial
beginning of the real manifestation.
beta reflection is much longer, stronger, and slower than the alpha
reflection. Imagine a
thunderstorm. If the alpha
reflection is a lightning flash, the beta reflection is the rolling
thunder that arrives much later. Both
originated with the same event, but they reach you at different times.
beta reflection generally arrives in three forms: ideas,
opportunities, and resources.
may experience a noticeable flow of ideas
related to your original intention. These
ideas may come in the form of spontaneous inspiration,
or they may arrive through other people.
Sometimes a good idea is all you will need to manifest what you are
seeking, and you will be able to carry it to completion on your own.
But if the intention is big enough, then ideas and direct action
wonít be enough by themselves.
beta reflection also brings new opportunities
and new resources. Often these seem to come out of nowhere, and may include
Whatever is required to manifest the intention eventually will come

reflection, but itís not as difficult as during the pre-beta lull
because now you have some genuine momentum. It doesnít require as much faith to see that the intention
is starting to manifest ó even the logical mind is able to see it coming
together. The main thing is
to keep your logical mind from screwing it up by trying to control the
process too much.
on the complexity of the intention, the beta reflection can last for
months or years. Our overall
results in life can be interpreted as the long-term summation of our beta
reflections from a lifetime of intentions.
Whatever you imagine with enough energy will eventually manifest. If your thoughts are clear and focused, youíll manifest
your desires relatively quickly and easily.
If your thoughts are jumbled and chaotic, youíll manifest a
seemingly random and haphazard life for yourself.
ultimate manifestation comes together in a fairly straightforward manner. Usually thereís some form of direct action involved, but
the actions that follow are smooth, flowing, and easy. No tedium or struggle
is required. The universe
does 80-90% of the work. The
final combination of ideas, opportunities, and resources are high
leverage, making it possible to achieve fantastic results with a minimal
investment of time and energy.
dominant thoughts are the key determinants of your results in life.
thoughts control your decisions, and your decisions over time control your
results. When you really
understood that, you assumed a new level of responsibility for every
thought that goes through your mind.
