Living with Intent: 6 Steps to Living a Healthier, More Joyful & Purposeful Life

MallikaChopra

About two years ago, I approached my father (Deepak Chopra) with a confession. I told him I was generally exhausted, over caffeinated and my sugar addiction was out of control.  I realized I was overscheduled trying to balance my role as a wife, mom, and entrepreneur with Intent.com, my start-up social media company. I felt bloated and had a lot of body pain. I hadn’t been meditating or exercising much, and at night I was having trouble sleeping. My father looked shell shocked, and it took a few moments for him to transition from concerned father to Deepak Chopra, the person that thousands go to for health advice. Continue reading

From Intent.com: Cultivating Peace

Screen Shot 2015-03-24 at 1.31.34 PM

 

I found myself sitting at a business lunch highly frustrated without knowing how I got that way. Had someone said something to make me mad? Was I mad at someone? Was I mad about the service? Or maybe something that had happened en route to lunch?
It sounds like a lot of questions about a simple feeling but recently I’ve started taking a moment to inventory a situation when I’m frustrated. Continue reading

Dear James: My Family’s Future

DearJames

Is my and my family’s future going to get any better?

 

Answer:

We are all stewards of our own destinies.

In that, we shoulder both the responsibility and accountability for all our life choices.

Every thought, action, inaction, belief, word, deed, excuse, and intention: matters.

There is no simple or magic way to adopt these truths: yet adopt them you must.

In order to change your circumstances in life: you must first be willing to accept the fact that you and you alone co-create your reality.

Once you surrender to this foundational life principle: everything before you will come into focus.

You’ll see how your thoughts, beliefs and intentions played a crucial role in every outcome.

For every action is based upon an underlying thought: which in turn is based upon an intention.

If your intentions are misaligned: the resulting outcome mirrors that trajectory.

By course correcting the underlying intention of your every thought, action and deed: you align your Self and your will: with your desired outcome.

When all of these elements are working in concert with one another: positive results are inevitable.

Like attracts like: for all of life is energy: resonating at varying frequencies.

Seek to resonate at a frequency that ensures optimism, abundance, gratitude, humility and grace.

From this plateau, you are ever closer to your will: in alignment with the purity of your intentions: reflecting that which universal law delivers: like for like.

Trust that the more you surrender and align your intentions with the natural rhythms of nature and the Universe: the more abundance you will feel and achieve: in all aspects of your life: not simply in monetary matters.

For currency is but a form of energy: continually resonating with you: at your current level of belief and harmony or disharmony with it.

Believe you are worthy of more: and so shall it be.

Can Wisdom Save Us? Why It Has To

earth

There’s always a sense of crisis in the air generated by whatever bad news is making the headlines. At the moment, the greatest alarm is being stirred by terrorism and the spread of Islamic extremism. Yet at a deeper level, our anxiety centers on something much deeper, the possibility that the human experiment has reached a dead end. A set of enormous problems face us, from climate change and overpopulation to epidemic disease and global water shortages, that test the limits of human nature.

The terrible possibility of moving backward in our evolution as a species seems possible to many observers.  We occupy a unique place in Earth’s evolutionary history, being the only creatures threatened not by natural selection but by our mindset. Pessimists point to climate change as a stark example. Despite the overwhelming scientific evidence in favor of global warming, no solution is being acted upon quickly enough. The American public has become numbed by issue fatigue. Deniers have political clout, and ordinary citizens feel helpless to the point that many feel doomed. We continually prefer to either ignore the problem or push it away as the consumer lifestyle adds more and more to the underlying problem of greenhouse gas emissions. Continue reading

From Intent.com: Bringing Dreams to Life

Screen Shot 2015-01-29 at 1.33.18 PM

 

Do you remember what you dreamed last night?
If someone asked you what your dream for your life was, would you be able to answer with a clear vision?
As much as we envision ourselves being somewhere whole and fulfilling in the future, we can easily divorce ourselves from that the moment we walk out the front door.

Our question is: how can you live your everyday life in a way that still pushes you toward your end goal? Continue reading

Visualizing Success In Everyday Life

breatheWhen people talk about visualization strategies it is often in the framework of seeing yourself as you want to be when you are at your goal. This is certainly important as one part of the visualization process since if you don’t know where you are then you won’t know the steps you need to get to that destination. However, there are smaller steps to visualizing success that can help you make the right decisions every day of your life. Instead of just focusing in on the huge mega plan, you also need to spend time seeing yourself being successful in the details as well. Continue reading

Head-Spacing.

“Fire all your guns at once and explode into space.” – Steppenwolf, Born to Be Wild. 

Hello. Are you thinking what I’m thinking?

brain

Sure you are. You just don’t know it yet. But, you do know what I mean. Are you having the same revolutionary inner thoughts that I do? Are your neural pathways, or whatever, firing, or whatever in the synaptic patters and places creating the faces and spaces that mine do? Is your inner mind your inner mine?

Does the thought of re-invention scare you? Continue reading

DearJames: Changing My Life

clouds

DearJames
I’m hoping to get a job with more hours, or should I just stay where I am? Also,
will love ever find me?

Answer:
Think not about more hours: or the lack thereof: instead, focus your attention and intentions on manifesting your dream job.

All too often: one finds themselves settling for any job: let alone one that they actually love.

Time is a vastly misunderstood commodity.

It is as limitless as it is priceless: however: it is not guaranteed.

To waste or squander it: is to be selfish and “un” timely: meaning, to not be limitless or priceless.

Begin each day by stating your intentions.

I intend to find the very best job for ME.

I intend to be open and aware to the signs and signals the Universe sends me.

I intend to follow through with each lead or opportunity with guided enthusiasm or restraint.

Continue to hone and revise your intentions: addressing matters of daily living: health: happiness: and specifically your dream job income, location, hours, boss(es), clients and co-workers: to name a few.

Incorporate the power of intentions throughout your day: so as to sustain a higher vibration: one that mirrors your new level of expectation.

Soon enough: by stating and re-stating your intentions: coupled with conscious awareness of the signs and signals the Universe sends you: you will have manifested your desired outcome.

Dreams jobs really do exist.

They are a match made in heaven: by a benevolent, gracious abundant Universe: and the expressive, faithful soul willing to dream and reach for the stars.

Love will find its way to you in the same manner.

Be willing to be: that which your heart longs for: by mirroring your actions with your intentions.

The power of your intentions will dramatically alter the trajectory of your life experiences.

And so should they: for they are a mirror: of your deepest held desires.

Aging Gracefully

Aging Gracefully:
Noticing and Choosing What You Want As You Grow Older

men

A few months ago, I did a panel, and follow-up interview with Prevention Magazine (a magazine which I love, by the way) on aging gracefully. How funny to find myself being a voice for that…

On the panel, as others talked about diet, exercise and how to look young, I found myself getting emotional as I thought about my grandfather, Nana, who had just passed away. I realized, while sitting on the stage, that aging gracefully for me meant living with dignity, being of service, and cherishing the relationships in my life. Continue reading
