# 1 – An article by Janet Bray Attwood, author of The Passion Test, about aligning intention with your passion…
The Power of Intention
Every single manmade creation you can see was once just an idea in someone’s mind – an idea that became a reality . If you want to create the life of your dreams, it begins by writing your dreams down and becoming as clear as possible about them.
The power of intention and attention is what brings ideas into concrete form. When you have intention and attention with no tension, then the whole process becomes fun.
Your Intentions Should Match Your Passion
For most people, creations are unconscious, and so they view themselves as the victims of their situations and circumstances.
However, successful people know the secret—they create their reality from what they put their intention on.
Some people state intentions and then are perplexed when the results in their life don’t match their stated intentions. Why would this happen?
Here is a secret that could be worth a lifetime of fulfillment to you, so pay close attention:
Your results will always match your true intentions.
Your life will always express what is going on deep inside you. Therefore, if your results are out of line with your stated intentions, it’s time to do some self-examination.
Where Do Your True Intentions Lie?
Some years ago we partnered with some friends to create a business. Together we stated our intention to generate $10 million in revenues and over $2 million in profits the first year. A year later we were $100,000 in debt after generating $1 million in revenues.
We stated our intentions clearly, we made a detailed plan, we executed the plan, and we worked our tails off. What went wrong?
Later when we looked back over that time, we realized that our real intention was to make our partners happy by agreeing to what they wanted. There were many times when we felt something should be done differently, but because we believed they were more experienced in that arena, we decided it wasn’t our place to change the way things were done.
In the short term, we did make them happy. We did things they liked, but in the end all of us were disappointed in the results.
Your results will always match your true intentions.
This means that if you want to know what is going on at the deepest level of your life and where your passion lies, look to your results. When your results are out of line with your stated intentions, look more deeply to discover your real intentions. Then work on realigning your real intentions to change your results, and the way you experience life.
When your actions are aligned with your intentions you will create your world out of those intentions.
If you or someone you know has experienced a similar enlightening experience I encourage you to leave a comment and share your eye-opening moment.

# 5 – Another perspective and update on the Grand Water Trine and other astrological happenings, this time from Tami Brunk’s newsletter at astrologyforearthrenewal.com…
We will blessedly continue to experience this Grand Water Trine through the coming week and remainder of July. At 11:31 am MDT, Jupiter was in an exact trine with Saturn. At 6:14 pm MDT, Jupiter will be exactly trine Neptune. And this Friday, the final aspect-Saturn Trine Neptune, will be exact.
Today’s Jupiter Trines occurs within the “time out of time” window of Uranus stationing retrograde. In fact, Uranus stationed just 10 minutes before the Jupiter Saturn Trine. We also happen to be at the tail end of the Mercury Retrograde cycle (it stations direct on Saturday)-so wowee zowee folks-this is a week of miracles and magic.
Jupiter Trine Saturn and Neptune
A Grand Trine in the Water Signs-Jupiter in Cancer, Saturn in Scorpio, and Neptune in Pisces-is a moment where we get to experience the ease and harmony in life, and ask ourselves-what might it mean to choose flow, to choose alignment, to actually allow Life to take us where our souls and spirits desire for us to go?
Today Jupiter moves resonantly with the energy of Saturn, and of Neptune, helping us feel the “good” sides” of both. Jupiter at ease with Saturn means that over the coming days we can focus our energy on manifestation in a very powerful way.
The way new life comes into form is through the In Breath or Contraction (Saturn) and the Out Breath or expansion (Jupiter). We are learning to dance with both.
Jupiter at ease with Neptune means that Higher Love comes down to earth and infuses our institutions of religion and higher learning with the innate knowledge that All is One.
If we want to get the most out of the next week, I can’t emphasize enough how powerful meditation, contemplative walks in nature, prayer, and other practices to get us in touch with Divine Revelation are at this time. They help to lay a strong spiritual foundation for the months to come.
Saturn Trine Neptune-Awakening the Dreamers
On Friday July 19 at 7:20 am MDT, Saturn Trines Neptune. I really love the implications of this, as an individual with lots of Neptune in my chart, but also lots of Saturn and Capricorn. Many of us emerging World Changers have bumped up against a particular dilemma that we sometimes get stuck on. I am going to guess that you, as my reader, have some of this tension in you, as well.
We often have high ideals and aspirations. We want to raise the vibration of the world we live in, and in our best moments we love everyone and everything-we see the world through the eyes of God. We want to live in the place of spiritual oneness and connection. We have a strong felt sense of what is possible in our world, and from the time we are very young, we are powerful dreamers and visionaries.
Yet we have been told from childhood that we daydream too much, that we are naïve, that the world doesn’t “work that way.” By adulthood, some of us are not totally crushed by this constant message that we are powerless and that dreams of change are illusions. We step into the world eagerly, with a mission to bring our visions into physical, manifest reality.
Yet it is frequently part of our initiation to have our hearts broken. We may even come to believe that the messages of cynicism and apathy handed down to us are true. For a while. Yet sooner or later life will stir that familiar longing in our hearts and we will awaken to the reality that the world depends on us, the dreamers. And so we root ourselves into the world as it is, and stretch our branches, and learn to connect the Above, and the Below.
For it is our destiny to become practical visionaries, to become effective doers with vision and a sacred calling. With Neptune and Saturn in a Trine on Friday, we are invited to use our practices of meditation, mindfulness, or other means of listening and receiving, to bring in and embody our destiny more powerfully than we ever have before.
When Flow Feels Like Crisis
On the OTHER hand, if we have been trying too hard to hold it together, to hold back the emerging changes, shifts, and transformations that are wanting to burst forth in our lives-well, this might not be an “easy” or purely good feeling time, yet in the long run, our “breakdown” is a breakthrough of life force energy, an opening where life can rush through and fill us, and awaken us, and help us to become more full of feeling, more a PART of life instead of APART from life.
# 6 – Hmmm, I’ll take the bed option, please Alex. :-)
“Death is an inevitable cycle. But sickness before death is a symptom of resistance. Most people think they’ve got to get sick to die. But, you could be like the cat who chooses to get run over. Or you could just lie down in your bed happily one night, so content and thoughtless, wanting nothing in this physical world; and just reemerge into Pure Positive Energy… You can play it out any way you choose.”—Abraham
