The Power of Your Word, Intentions, and Attaining Your Goals

The Power of Your Word, Intentions, and Attaining Your Goals

Everyday we communicate with one another using a combination of words and gestures. A word meaning; a unit of language, consisting of one or more spoken sounds or their written representation, that functions as a principal carrier of meaning; to be as good as one’s word, to hold to one’s promise.  Our words are how we express who we are, what we want to communicate, and how we engage in the world. There is a book called The Four Agreements, they are Be impeccable with your word; Don’t take anything personally; Don’t make assumptions; Always do Your Best. We will focus on the first one, to Be impeccable with your word, and using this principle to help bring more of what you want into your life, using words such as health, vitality, love, abundance, honesty, respect, community, etc.

As a health coach with the Dragontree, we work with clients engaging in the whole of their experience. Holistic and integrative health is an approach to wellness where lifestyle in combination with nutrition brings about strong foundational health.  We would guide a client to create intentions and accomplish goals using sustainable lifestyle practices such as adding in the right foods for their own unique body type, finding a joyful form of physical activity, and speaking from their truth.  Intention meaning what one intends to do, or bring about; and goal meaning the result or achievement toward which effort is directed; aim; end.  My intention is to help keep a client accountable to their word, it becomes an agreement to themselves.  So when we focus on our word, it is not just our word to others but also to ourselves, it is usually easier to keep our word to others, not always to ourselves.  Then the intention and goal could be, I will practice being compassionate with myself. One exercise would be to write out your ideas, remembering to be specific, what do you want,  what is your intention, and what goals can we use to accomplish these.You may want to repeat what you have written out loud and then put your goals in a place where you can easily see them. Doing this exercise might help you not only articulate your aspirations but also allow you to put your intentions out into the universe. We can use these words daily with a knowing of what they mean, but when we really focus and reflect on the meaning it could bring them more power and a deeper understanding to how words, intentions, and goals allow us a greater sense of clarity on our path.  This allows our highest self, god, goddess, buddha, christ, great spirit, jah, the light, science and all meanings of our connection to something greater than oursleves a chance to know and listen to what we want to receive, support us, and present it to us.
