The space between the senses and the object of our senses is the place to observe and direct intention. This space is like an empty canvas and it is precisely this emptiness that is able to carry and contain the essence of our intention. It is like finding a free area of land to plant some new trees. When the foundations have been set it is possible to direct intention into areas that are not empty because we have created enough structures that allow room for further development and growth. This is similar to the process of developing focus and observation before branching off into other areas such as the psychic senses or manifestation. When we have developed the basic foundations or 1st level skills then we will find that the 2nd level skills are able to be developed.
The practice of intention can be integrated through the development of our most basic practices of observation and focus. To engrain our practice of focus with the direction of clarity and effortlessness, we observe and find the space between the mind that is focusing and the object of focus. Into this space we feel and direct what we believe to be the effects of clarity and effortlessness. We refine this process by questioning whether the clarity and effortlessness we are observing is the clearest it can be. If it is not then we seek still deeper. We “listen” and feel for the most genuine level of effortless clarity we can find. This is the process of stretching and remember that a stretch will always feel like this. It will feel like a long reach and at the very perimeter of the stretch it will feel as if our hold or grasp on it is tenacious. This is as it should be. A stretch must feel like a stretch, but through practice what at present may feel unstable will become stable. We then can use this stability to stretch further. In time we will be able to connect strongly to focus with clarity and effortless and the feeling and effect will be 100% genuine.
Directing intention into observation works in the same way. We find the space between the observer and what is being observed. Into this space we direct what we believe to be the most genuine feeling of objective mind we can perceive. We further direct this intention to continue to be alert to seeking a deeper more genuine level of objective observation.
In developing these basic skills we are also creating the ability to engineer and manifest consciousness. It is this consciousness and our mastery of it that allows us to create our reality. Practicing and experiencing the effects of directing inspiration, empowerment, love and clarity into the spaces in our consciousness brings purpose, reason and meaning into our lives. Directing beacons of intention that listen for information on how to integrate clairvoyance or clairaudience brings knowledge and communication into our lives.
Intention is very much the practice of how to use skills. If skills were like paints then intention is learning how to paint. The paint itself is the perception, belief or frequency of energy that we seek to create. The inspiration behind the painting is the reason or meaning that we choose to create in the first place. Each of these aspects needs to be understood if we are to manifest our realities effectively and congruently.
