Your Intention, Your Journey

The power of intention refers to the ability of a person's thoughts and beliefs to shape their reality and manifest their desires. Intention is the conscious decision to focus one's thoughts and energy towards a specific outcome, goal or desire. The power of intention is based on the belief that when you set an intention and align your thoughts, feelings, and actions with that intention, you can manifest that desire into reality.

Intention to journey

Research has shown that the power of intention can have significant effects on various aspects of life, including health, relationships, and career success. However, it is important to note that the power of intention is not a magic formula that can guarantee success or instant results. It requires consistent effort, positive mindset, and an open-minded approach to life.

Intentions bring clarity and improve outcomes. You do not need to know how or when your intentions will come true, just know that by having intentions, you are deepening the effect of the psychedelic experience.

Name your intentions, then let go of your attachment to the outcome. Once you write your intentions and any questions you would like answered, you can memorize and review them leading up to your experience. It is good to write in the positive tense focusing on what you want, rather than what you don’t want.

On Intentions Vs. Expectations

A key understanding in working with psychedelic substances is to release expectations and instead focus on “intentions.” Expectations create attachments for the experience to happen in a certain way and produce a specific result, which leaves room for disappointment and can cause you to miss out on the opportunities that arise that were not planned. A common phrase with psychedelic work is that “you don’t get the experience you want, you get the experience you need”.

Approaching your experience with humility and an openness to whatever arises is key. Intentions clarify why you are undergoing this journey and what you’d like to accomplish, while creating an openness as to how things happen.

You can think of intentions as goals without attachments; they help orient your consciousness towards your desired outcomes without the burden of being attached to the outcome.

Some people believe intentions open communication between your goals and the intelligence of the medicinal plant. Intentions keep you focused, grounded, in your process, and open to whatever arises throughout the experience.
