Power of Intention
Recent findings have revealed the powerful science behind intention setting and its ability to change our human biology. This has forced us to re-evaluate the importance of intention setting in our everyday lives, and being cognizant of our daily thoughts.
Setting intentions is a way of igniting our bodies to reaching a new purpose, life path or emotional state. The power of intention is truly profound; it's been suggested to relieve chronic diseases, heal past emotional wounds and help manifesting our dream lives. This all starts within the space of your very own mind.
“The beliefs we hold in our minds are converted into electromagnetic fields by nerve cells and the brain ‘broadcasts’ this information to all of the cells within our body."
Our minds and bodies are deeply connected; every thought we experience has a direct cellular effect on our bodies. Right when we set an intention, the communication pathways between our mind, brain and body fire up. According to Dr Bruce Lipton, when we set intentions “the beliefs we hold in our minds are converted into electromagnetic fields by nerve cells and the brain ‘broadcasts’ this information to all of the cells within our body. Cells respond to the information in these energy fields and use it to control their behaviour and gene activity.” For example, if we set positive intentions, every cell within our body will behave in alignment with the intention we have just set and vibrate at the same positive frequency. On the contrary, if we are prone to negative thinking, our cells will respond by preparing to Fight-or-Flight.
Human biology does not question information sent by the nervous system. This demonstrates how vital the role of thought is in deciding the fate of our body’s health and functionality. In essence, it is evident that intention and belief have the ultimate power to act as a filter between the real environment and our own body. By engaging in a consciously positive mindset, we have the ability to control our cell's behaviour in a way that enhances our biology and life events.
"Every day, think as you wake up: Today I am fortunate to have woken up. I am alive, I have a precious human life.I am not going to waste it."

The power of intention has the ability to change the shape of our brains. Our brains are made up of neural pathways. Neural pathways are the superhighways of nerve cells that transmit messages; the more times electrical messages journey down the same beaten tracks, the more solid and shaped into our existence they become. AKA, the more positive thoughts we have = happier, healthier reality.
The more we repeat a positive intention or general positive behaviour; the more likely our brain is to reorganise its neurons in our favour. Through curating healthy intentions we have the power to shape our brains in more adaptive and beneficial ways. Thank you power of intention!
So go on, set your intentions today...
