     So far, we’ve talked about intention as part of metaphysical practices such as prayer, spellcraft or energywork. Did you know you can also combine intention with everyday tasks -and that, by doing so, you can turn those chores into energywork as well?

     For instance, doing the dishes can just be part of kitchen maintenance. On the other hand, if you first set an intention that, as you wash those dishes you’ll also be clearing away dysfunctional beliefs, you may find yourself surprised at how much more clearly you’re seeing your current challenges by the time the last dish hits the drainer.

     Cleaning out a closet is a necessary evil. Setting an intention that, as you purge old clothes that no longer fit, you also make room for better things in your life can really open the way for attracting those better things.

     Just as setting an intention in metaphysical work helps to draw, shape and target energy to achieve a goal, combining a mundane task with a greater intention can also channel energy towards better things. It’s kind of multi-tasking on multiple planes.

     “After enlightenment, the laundry..” is one of my favorite sayings. It bears witness to the fact that, even if  we’re working with energy and enlightenment, we still need to ground that work to earth – earth and heaven coming together. It’s also fun to flip that concept on it’s head and link that earthly task with more esoteric energy…

     So what are your intentions for the day?…
