I came out of deep meditation the other day with the words “applied conscious intent” in mind.   After a few minutes of pondering, it occurred to me that a spiritual teacher friend of 20 to 25 years ago (who transitioned in the early 1990s) might have used it. When I first did an internet search for the term, I came up with nothing specific on the first couple pages. However, a few days later, I searched for the term with the name of the friend, Marcia Patterson, and confirmed she had given workshops named “The Power of Applied Conscious Intent.”

I suspect the term “applied conscious intent” came to mind that day because I had recently read some paragraphs and articles about intent.  Further information on Marcia Patterson’s recommendations for using the term aren’t clear in my mind. However, I suspect it was along the lines of the following and, if not, this is a good way to use the term:

“I Am [name]. I Am That I Am. With the Power of my Applied Conscious Intent, I [name] Decree I Am ________________________--Now.” 

Normally, I affirm/decree as follows: “I Am [name]. I Am That I Am. In the name of Christ, with the power of Christ Divine within me, and with the power, with the light, and with the love of my Inner Divine Spirit, I [name] Decree I Am ____________--Now.” It is a closer match with the Applied Conscious Intent affirmation/decree in this form: “I Am [name]. I Am That I Am. With the power, with the light, and with the love of my Inner Divine Spirit, I [name] Decree I Am _____________--Now.”

Important Note:  You put an action verb in the blank followed with as few words as possible, such as “ascending into higher consciousness, ascending into higher love,” or “attracting many wonderful opportunities to be of service, or “coming from love at all times with all people in all situations,” or “looking forward to the replacement of my computer with a newer model,” or “eagerly anticipating my new automobile.”  You get the idea!

Personally, I prefer my Inner Divine Spirit format rather than the Applied Conscious Intent format.  However, I recognize there are circumstances when the Applied Conscious Intent format might be called for and possibly more effective—such as with regard to manifesting material goods or funds (such as an automobile) and material circumstances (such as a new job). I’ll probably be using both formats depending on whether my thoughts are on the spiritual or on the material.

Many have heard the term “the power of the spoken word” It originated with Florence Scovel Shinn, and she published a book titled “The Power of the Spoken Word” in 1945. Previous books were “The Game of Life” (1925), “Your Word is Your Wand” (1928), “The Secret Door to Success” (1940). I have a 355-page book in my collection titled, “The Writings of Florence Scovel Shinn,” which includes all four books.  They are considered classic by many and still available in the marketplace. They are all mostly short and very short paragraphs, and I recommend them all.

Words have power, people! Use them wisely!
