Are You Intent on Intending?

The Intention Box (400x300)

Has it ever happened that you are about to go out, are thinking about a taxi and when you step out of your home you manage to hail one immediately or better yet, there is one parked right in front of you waiting for fare?

I’ve done it a number of times when I go to my favorite market where parking is a nuisance and manage to get a parking spot. On one occasion a car pulled out just as I drove in and got the coveted parking spot when the market was at its busiest.

The secret?


Tapping into the Power of Intention


Stephen Hawking quote on Life and Success



Our thoughts have energy and if we focus well and with intent and feeling, things do manifest.

This is not just a creative visualization technique. I use it for time management as well.

If you are a fan of the To Do List (like me) this time management tip is a must try.

Make a list of all the things you really need to do today.

Then allocate a specific period of time for each activity. Apply the Chunk, Block and Tackle technique.

If a task will take longer than 12 minutes, assess how long it would really take and allocate the time accordingly.

Now for a unique step that changes the dynamics completely!

When you are about to start the activity, say to yourself either in your mind or loudly “I intend/It is my intention to complete this task in the best possible time carefully and thoroughly”.

You can also make the intention specific to the purpose of your task. The way I use it to get parking!

In other words, divide your work into reasonable bytes, focus with undivided and complete attention on the task at hand and maintain the intent of intention to complete the task.

If our intention is complete and absolute, the Universe supports us by sending us helpers to get the task done. When the task is done, say a Gratitude Statement to seal the task.

So in my case, after I get the parking, I silently say “I am grateful that I got a lovely parking place for my car”.


Do you dare to take up my challenge you to try out this technique with the important items on your To Do List and see if it works for you?

PS. Also place the intention to come back and share your experience!

      Welcome Alexandra! I used to do it a lot when I was younger without realizing that I was using the Power of Intention! It makes such a difference!

  2. Great post! Everything starts with a thought. I use this technique daily. When I need help with traffic, I ask my angels, and the open spaces occur.

    • Karmic Ally says:

      Welcome to my blog, Barbara. You are so right, everything does start with a thought and dreams can be translated into reality. One just has to ask our Guardian Angels to guide us and voila, the doors to success open.

    Intending your energy is an important part of stepping into your power. Thanks for sharing this powerful article!

    • Karmic Ally says:

      Thank you MarVeena and welcome to my blog. Quite often when a coaching client is stuck, I simply ask, ‘what is your intention?’. After a deep silence or a even a bit of beating around the bush, the intention does emerge and the blockage, whether psychological or physical starts to either melt or we enter the realm of possibility thinking.

  5. Carele says:

  13. Sharon O'Day says:

    I used to say that taxicabs and parking spaces just presented themselves to me because I was Irish. Now you’ve given me a far better explanation! 😉 (Actually, I know you’re right …)

    • Karmic Ally says:

      Thank you for dropping by Sharon. There may be something about Irish luck too. Even now, if I get a chance I look for four leaved clovers. I must check it out. Watch out for a post about Intention and Irish Charm!

I believe the world would be a better place if high achieving professionals accepted setbacks and challenges to their careers as Wake Up Calls to embark on a Journey where their empowered course correcting actions create a New World Order that encompasses achieving their career aspirations & potential with authentic life balance.

I work with driven, passionate, talented and ambitious professionals who’ve hit a speed breaker in their business or career create their desired breakthrough reclaiming control of their situation with customized strategies and tactics that deliver results.

When my clients first reach out to me, they are not in a very happy place, needing clarity about themselves, their desires, chosen vocation and what will give them peace of mind. They are drawn to me for the very reasons that I highlight in Who Is Karmic Ally Coaching.

Their professional problems are playing havoc with other areas of their life. They know they need to take radical steps to change the status quo but they also know they need support and accountability to get them their desired result.

I really get it, because I’ve experienced that dark night of the Soul. I know firsthand the outcome of getting lost in my work rationalizing decisions that were detrimental to other aspects of my life.

I’ve struggled with and won battles of stress management, corporate politics, life balance and career decisions to emerge in a place where I can confidently say that I live my desired life according to my personal Manifesto and have created a business that provides me with a platform for my desired lifestyle and self-expression for myself. I want that for you too!
