Although I have resisted journaling as a spiritual practice for a while, I have to admit that it is a powerful tool for healing and growth. Recently, I’ve been inspired to use journaling as a tool for setting intentions for the day. This exercise only takes a few minutes, and it can be very powerful.
Either first thing in the morning or prior to going to bed, I journal about the upcoming day as if I’ve already experienced it. After completing this exercise, I’ve found that a majority of my intentions had come to pass. However, there were one or two of my intentions that haven’t manifested because I allowed my mind to convince me that they wouldn’t happen. If you plan to try this exercise, don’t be discouraged if your intentions don’t manifest right away.
Sometimes, we allow our minds to sabotage our efforts. Also, the universe needs time to work its magic.
One of the most fascinating things that I have encountered on my spiritual journey is the law of attraction and our ability to manifest anything into reality. There was a time when I was depressed, and I felt that something in my life needed to change. Although I’d heard of the law of attraction, I had put it out of my mind for several years.
However, I stumbled across this information once again. I tried many of the recommended law of attraction exercises. However, every time I tried to visualize my desires, I would become distracted. I concluded that nothing would ever change anyway.
After working with a coach, I began to understand why I was manifesting the same things into my life over and over again despite studying the law of attraction. I was doing the same things over and over again while expecting different results. In other words, I was not in alignment with what I was trying to manifest.
Although I was visualizing a happier life for myself, I was depressed, which is a low vibration. Also, I did not have the belief that things would change. You can visualize and write lists of intentions until the cows come home, but if you are not in alignment with your goals and desires, you may not see the results that you expected. However, once your emotions, beliefs, and actions are brought into alignment with your goals and desires, you are more likely to wreap the rewards of your efforts.
For example, someone may be looking for love for several years. They may be seeking out a relationship in all the right ways, but that person secretly believes that she is unlovable. Since this person is out of alignment with the desire of finding love, she may end up bouncing from one relationship to another. Similarly, if I say that I want to save money while believing that I don’t deserve money and spend every penny I have, I am unlikely to manifest more money despite my desire because my beliefs and actions are not in alignment with my desire to have more money.

In our society, we can find plenty of reasons to fear never having enough. If you follow the media, you hear that there never seems to be enough money, food, employment, and the list continues.
What would you do if there was always enough? Believe it or not, there is enough of everything to go around. There’s always enough love, there’s always enough success, and you don’t have to be extremely wealthy to get it.
We were meant to live in an abundant universe; not in a universe full of lack. In an ever-changing world, how can we tap into that abundance for ourselves?
First, we need to stop thinking in terms of lack. Instead, look around at all of the blessings that you’ve been given. That will create a shift in your energy, and if done consistently, this mindset change will become a habit. Another nice side effect of focusing on your blessings is that you may begin to realize that you are always given exactly what you need when it is needed.
