Yesterday I had a very lovely experience which all started by me setting an intention, which I will share with you in a moment.
I was on my way to the gym early yesterday morning and I knew I would be doing quite a bit of cardio so I set an intention… I said to myself: “Wouldn’t it be lovely if I bump into some wonderful people at the gym and we have some GREAT chats!”
The irony is this… I DID meet three people… and they were all people I had known from the gym for years, but (as a result of the energy of the intention) we had very NEW conversations…
The world around you reveals itself to your energy… if you have the same energy then you have the same experiences and same aspects experienced from others.
Change your energy, and you draw forth new experiences, including from the same people.
The third person I synchronistically bumped into worked freelance with film studios such as Pinewood and Shepperton here in the UK and worked on major blockbuster movies over the years. We have said hello to each other for years but this time we talked about all sorts of experiences that we have had in our lives.
In his case, we was telling me how in the 70s and 80s he worked on the Superman and Star Wars movies amongst others. He met Christopher Reeve, Marlon Brando, Peter Sellers and his wife Britt Ekland, David Niven and many others.
I got to know about these people as if I had met them myself… their nuances and their day to day habits which most people never get to know.
As we got talking my friend mentioned how in breaks during filming they would play football (soccer!). They played football matches with Christopher Reeve and the lighting crew. He told me now nowadays it wouldn’t happen anymore because the studios try to protect their ‘assets’ (the actors), including for insurance reasons. I learned how Marlon Brando would take the crew out for drinks and was “a man’s man”.
I heard about how Peter Sellers would keep to himself, perhaps focused on his roles. And there were quite a few stories about him and his then wife Britt Ekland!
I also heard about how David Niven is just like he is on-screen as is Christoper Reeve, and a gentleman.
My friend and I talked for quite a while and I learnt about many of the behind-the-scenes secrets and how high profile actors were when they weren’t on-screen.
I ended up getting a lot of cardio done as well as us laughing a lot and having plenty of fun! At the end my friend and I shook hands and said we would chat again.
Let’s See What Happened Manifestationally…
1 – I set an intention: “Wouldn’t it be lovely if I bump into some wonderful people at the gym and we have some GREAT chats!”
2 – I let it go. I stayed in the moment and enjoyed my time in the gym. I found that I used three pieces of equipment and waiting for me on the next equipment every time was someone ready to have a conversation.
Sure, I could have put on my earphones and listened to music or done something else, but I’d set the intention for conversation and this is what I got on this occasion, every time.
When you think of your goals, are you setting intentions? Intentions create a focus in your energy. Your perceptual filters (conscious and unconscious) also draw in data, information and situations to be consistent with your intention.
Setting intentions is often an under-rated tool. Even if you are having a challenge or are stumped on a situation, set an intention for the answers to come to you – even if you don’t know how they will come. Take it a step at a time. You can intend your way to manifestations!
The above process may seem trivial to some, but it is a same type of process that makes fortunes, brings fantastic love to your life as well as bodily and health changes.
