Intention is very powerful when we’re self-empowered but until we reach self-empowerment it’s very limited in what can be accomplished. Intention must have the knowing of what we intend to do firmly imbedded in our spiritual consciousness, the intention by itself is meaningless. A metaphor of having an intention without a knowing to go with it is like having a lighter without any fuel, it makes sparks but there’s no flame.
Understanding is at least partially misunderstood, our spiritual consciousness can understand something but we often equate this with knowing which is far greater than having the understanding of it. Our 3D intellect tracks and catalogs everything we do including what we read or hear about spiritual things, although the intellect is powerless to do anything Spiritual. The 3D intellect holds a database of our experiences to date. Its function is to help us recognize everything around us in 3D so we can comprehend what to do with them. Most of the time we never notice the difference between our intellect and our spiritual consciousness since we’ve grown up with both of them we just accept they’re one in the same and it feels natural to us. Our consciousness can understand something yet we haven’t necessarily taken it to the next level instilling it as knowing yet. Understanding can be intentionally converting into Spiritual knowing although this isn’t simple by any means, its Master level knowledge which requires being fully self-empowered to begin receiving any information about how it would work. Many times we may think we spiritually know things but these turn out to be a 3D understanding. At these times we wonder why things aren’t happening or we just assume they are because we’ve intended it to be. It takes both knowing and intention.
Knowing goes beyond understanding in ways which 3D words fail to express. Knowing is strictly a multidimensional concept only to be comprehended by a multidimensional part of our spiritual consciousness. Knowing if we have knowing is a difficult subject. Knowing is not learned from a book as 3D words fail here, we’ll get an understanding instead. Knowing can be obtained from guidance yet guidance will not just give us knowing about things we haven’t worked at understanding for a long time if even then. We’re called to earn knowing, if Guidance just give us knowing it would diminish the value of our learning. Depending on the subject knowing can be transferred from others who know how to do such a transfer and have the knowing to transfer. There are exceptions to this, we won’t be able to transfer knowing when it concerns a spiritual test for one and connecting to our higher aspects for another, plus some others. We must do these for ourselves.
Where spiritual actions come from is through the center of our Spiritual Being, our heart chakra with its connection to our higher vibrating aspects on the other side of the veil. The “brain” isn’t involved in this except perhaps in an obstructionary way working with the Ego giving us false reasons why it won’t work. If we listen to those then we really don’t “know” it yet, it’s still an understanding. To use self-empowerment we must first build a relationship with the rest of us and work with the greater-self to create our desires. We still need the knowing within us otherwise we’re just asking the Greater-self to do things for us which is not self-empowerment and not why we’re here. We’re here to experience and learn to do it ourselves as the creators we are, this is what Mastery is about.
