Intentions are the Key to Healing
Set your intentions!
Are you aware of what your intentions actually are? At this very moment? Because if you aren’t, you’re going to be running on default intentions. Which means you won’t know what they are until you’re at the end of the day. And for most people that equates to being tired and depleted.
But it doesn’t have to be that way.
Intention is one of the Dimensions of the 6 Dimensions of Healing. Healing isn’t just about the body. Anything that is out of balance or unlike love in your life, needs healing. Your intentions are a key that unlocks the healing for you.
Here is an excerpt from the book 6 Dimensions of Healing and it’s on the Intention Dimension.
What to Do When Others Influence your Life
An elderly friend was 95, and whilst she had lived a long life she tended to gravitate towards the negative side of experiences. When she spoke, it seemed to be an opportunity to complain, but that’s what kept her going. She wasn’t happy, as happiness seemed to be dependent on everything being perfect, and her perception of perfect changed constantly. When we went shopping or spent time together at an event, I would reach the end of the day feeling a little washed out for having been in her company.
One day I decided on the way to the shopping center with Edna that I wanted to feel good no matter what.
That was my intention.
(I have found the ‘no matter what’ part important when I’m not sure what I will encounter, as it covers everything.)
What occurred was really remarkable. Not only did we have fun together, but I didn’t notice her complain once. I introduced her to an old friend we met by chance. They were both pioneers of the area and fun stories of history unraveled. This was a side to Edna I rarely saw.
Her favorite lunch place was a café I didn’t usually frequent, as I didn’t particularly like the experiences I’d had with their food or coffee. This day though, my coffee tasted delicious, and the salad I ordered was scrumptious. I enjoyed every mouthful. Because I had set my intentions and was determined to stay there. I had moved myself into a place of being a vibrational match with food that tasted great, coffee I enjoyed and conversation that was uplifting. Edna ‘came along for the ride’, as my mood was dominant and it helped us both.
This is an example of how to bring out the best in people. And it can work with everyone.
Set your Intentions on Purpose
You can change your life and the life of those around you, just by setting your intentions. It isn’t possible to change other people, but they do respond differently around you when you have chosen to stand steadfast in your joy. It’s empowering to know that you can enhance life’s experiences by simply changing your perception.
When our children were at high school, they would come home and the first question I would ask them was how their day had been. If it were any less than great, I would ask them if they had set their intentions in the morning as they knew about this. Invariably they would say they hadn’t, so what they were experiencing were default intentions.
They came to learn this very quickly, as there were direct consequences for not setting intentions. If you are unsure of what default your intentions are set at, it is the balance of your mood during the day. (And who knows what that is until the end of the day.)
You can’t experience anything other than your intentions.
Kids Can Set Their Own Intentions
The simplicity of changing their experience was to tell themselves they were going to have a great day, and believe it as they left for school. The Universe was obliging, as when they moved into the space of a ‘great day’, their experiences changed. It sounds so simple, and yet it’s a very effective method.
As a parent, I never got involved in the situation of what had happened if they hadn’t set their intentions, as they knew the whole situation could have been avoided had they set up their day intentionally.
The irritable teacher may still be the same, I pointed out, but you’re no longer in her sights as you aren’t a vibrational match. You can’t change other people but you can certainly change how you feel about someone. As you feel differently, therefore you perceive your environment differently. So this creates a new path that matches how you feel.
It works in Every Circumstance
A friend of mine would conduct seminars internationally, and spent much time intentionally setting out the ground rules at the beginning of his seminars. He would go to great lengths to tell the participants what he expected from them, how he wanted them to act and behave.
However, the more ground rules he set out the more he needed, as he was attracting participants who seemed to want to break his ground rules. This is an example of being focused on what you don’t want rather than what you do.
All he needed to do was set his own intentions by spending the time before the seminar to know what he wanted. Rather than trying to control the situation. In this place of clarity, he would have attracted a match with his intentions, rather than a vibrational match with what he didn’t want which was what he was trying to push away.
Focus only on what you DO want, not what you DON’T want.
Many people are very aware of what they DON’T want. The focus of this awareness brings attention, which creates default intentions for what you DON’T WANT. Therefore, in your awareness of the unwanted you are requesting from the Universe more of what you don’t want. However, to change the request, all you need do is to be aware of what you DO want.
This is an intentional path where it’s unnecessary to set ground rules or boundaries for others as you’re attracting those who share your intentions.
When you do the work before you step out the door you are guided by the intentions you’ve set. It only takes a moment to breathe and reset them if needed, during the day. And it’s absolutely worth the conscious focus to gain the reward of feeling great throughout the day.
Intentions Set the Menu For your Mood
Intentions are rather like a menu. The waiter takes your order and the meal arrives in a little while. You know you are going to receive Chicken Kiev, if that’s what you ordered. But if you wait until the meal arrives and then decide to make a choice, you may or may not get what you want. In this case, the best you can do is to decide intentionally that you are going to enjoy whatever is on offer, no matter what.
A menu of emotions helps you to decide now, what you want to create for the future. Because every choice you make now is creating your future, whether you’re aware of it or not. That’s how default intentions come about. Simply by practicing intentions that you aren’t even aware of.
This means you’ve put in an order to the Universe by having intentions you’re unaware of and creating a future you may not like. It’s never too late to change them, but first you need to be aware of what your intentions are.
This is important because consciously choosing your intentions determines the path along which your thoughts and ultimately your life will travel. This is your future and you can make it great by simply setting your intentions often.

Who am I?
I’m Gayle Maree, creator of 6 Dimensions of Healing, author, mother, Past Life Therapist and Spiritual Counselor for over 23 years.
Someone once told me (a well-respected mentor) that people need “experts” to live a life they value… and I didn’t believe them.
I thought everybody could do it on their own because I did. I figured out what didn’t work in my life and then I changed it. Actually, I changed me. And it was a LOT of work!
Not because I was trying to impress those that told me I had a ‘bad attitude’ or I had something to prove to people who thought I was lousy at pretty well everything, but because there were aspects of me that even I didn’t like. I wanted improvements in me and my life.
Change Versus Comfort
It was obvious to me that if I didn’t make changes I could expect more of the same in my life as before. The same things that didn’t work, the same relationships that my parents had.
I wanted more. Mostly, I wanted my kids to be proud of me. Damn it, I wanted to be proud of myself.
So, I set about what would be a continuous, amazing journey.
I’ve been with my Spiritual Soulmate over 30 years now and we still work on the relationship, we work on improving us, because we know that whatever we want, to get it we need to be different to how we were.
And I listen so much more now because I value the wisdom of my non-physical guides who have been with me for as long as I can remember.
Now it’s your turn
This is the same path I used to make the changes that led to a valued and prosperous life. So much more than I ever imagined.
The path is laid out in our book 6 Dimensions of Healing
