What is intention?

The dictionary says intention is "determining mentally upon an action or end result." Basically, in my mind, every single thing you do is a result of intention.

What can intention do?

Absolutely everything.

You can intend to eat. Once you have that set intention, you might stand up (because you intended to), walk to the fridge (because you intended to), and put food in your mouth (because you intended to).

Once that food is inside your belly, the intention you have set for that bite of food is out of your brain and you most likely have already moved on to the next matter of importance. But your body, the part that breathes, heals wounds, and digests food (without you even realizing you're doing any of it) only continues to go through these processes because it intends to itself. How? Because every molecule holds intention.

Feeling confused? Read on.

What responds to intention?

Dr. Glen Reid, a cell biologist, conducted an experiment in 2003 on changes in DNA structure and formation caused by heart-focused intention. His study "reflects heart-brain interactions and autonomic nervous system dynamics, which are particularly sensitive to changes in emotional states." Taking a deeper look, though, he found a link between physiological functioning and sustained, heartfelt, positive emotions.

"The electromagnetic field generated by the heart is the most powerful rhythmic electromagnetic field produced by the body... and can be detected by other individuals and can produce physiologically relevant effects in a person five feet away."

If you have ever heard of the "Heart Intelligence Theory" you will know that the DNA molecules in our bodies have an energetic connection produced by the heart that synchronizes every single cell in your body.

This synchronistic connection is commonly referred to as your higher self, your spirit, your subconscious mind, etc.

How can I use intention to my advantage?

First, you have to understand intention. Modern science is coming out more and more often lately to say that intentions actually do lead to manifestations; In other words, what you think becomes what you are. Because thoughts and intentions are an unseen force, it is commonly criticized and labeled as 'pseudo-science,' but you can make it work for you and see real results for yourself.

I am currently reading a book about how to do this, and it explains the process beautifully:

"If you think negatively, destructively, and viciously, these thoughts generate destructive emotions that must be expressed and must find an outlet. These negative emotions frequently express themselves as ulcers, heart trouble, tension, and anxieties. What is your idea or feeling about yourself right now? Every part of your being expresses that idea."

How does every part of your being express that and why? Because you are putting out negative intention, which your body, your heart, your cells, all take as truth - and they act accordingly.

"Your vitality, body, financial condition, friends, and social status represent a perfect reflection of the idea you have of yourself."

So, if you think thoughts like,

"My life sucks,"

"OMG, I'm going to get sick,"

"I have no time for anything,"

your entire being accepts these thoughts as reality. Therefore, you begin to hate your day-to-day schedule, your immune system weakens and causes you to get sick, and you become increasingly stressed and busy.

Even if you jokingly say things like, "I'm broke," it is so important to remember that your body, your soul, your subconscious mind, does not understand sarcasm! Be careful what your feed yourself.

Fortunately, the opposite is also true!

You can state things that are completely false, and your body will believe it. For example, my bank account was running low recently and, despite the clear lack of money, I kept telling myself, "I obtain everything I need and money just comes to me." That same day, I got a free coffee and won a gift card.

These are another two of my favorite examples, and you can try these for yourself, which is why I love them so much.

Have you ever woken up right before your alarm goes off and thought about how crazy it was that that happened? That is not coincidence, it is synchronicity; the work of intention.

Before you go to bed tonight, try laying down, relaxing, closing your eyes, and focusing all your love and intention on waking up at a specific time. Tell your body, "I will wake up at 9:00 a.m." or whatever time you are aiming for.

Another example that works wonders in my life is using intention to get a good parking spot. (Especially at TCU, parking is a nightmare.) On your drive to school or the store, imagine yourself pulling up to an empty space right up front. Imagine the excitement and relief you feel as you see this spot just waiting for you. Make it real in your brain and feel it in your heart, and your whole entire being will react.

Chances are, you will pull into the parking lot and - what do ya know - someone is backing out of a spot, leaving it open just for you. Perfect timing. What a coincidence right?

Nope.

That was all you.

"Am I intending hard enough?"

Many people get stuck on trying to have certain intentions, and intending to have good intentions, as if it is hard work.

An intention is not something you have to develop. Like I said at the very beginning of this article, if you walk out the back door, it is because you had the intention to walk out the back door. Did a thought pop up in your brain and say, "Oh, I am using intention right now," or, "Am I intending to walk to the door hard enough?"

No! You would never stop halfway there and think, "Damn, I don't think my intentions are strong enough or clear enough."

Your body literally breathes, digests, and heals all by itself. The universe knows what your intentions are, and there is no need to force it.

There is no way to 'intending better' or 'intending harder' or 'intending clearer.'

You just do it.

What is my intention here?

I, right now, am intending to help anyone and everyone that happens to come across this article, especially in the wake up the horrific things happening in the world today.

I want you to start thinking more positively, so your body becomes healthier, your relationships stronger, your life more abundant.

I intend to teach others (as well as constantly remind myself) how to create the life they desire using the least amount of effort as possible. I intend to spread a body-engulfing feeling of love and happiness, and of serendipity, and I am sure that many of you will feel it as you read this sentence, because I am filling these words with loving intention.

And I want people to realize that intention is not confined to a certain person, place or thing. You can put your positive intention into words, you can spread it through physical touch, or you can spread it through objects. What I mean by this is, you can literally put an intention of love into a penny, and the next person who picks up that penny, will immediately have that intention flow into them. (Remember how I said molecules hold intention? And every thing is made up of molecules? Yeah, pretty cool.)

Now that you've probably seen the word intention more times than you thought you would today, I hope you go out and practice, as well as go within and practice.

Envision yourself in perfect health, and your cells will react.

Recreate the feeling of joyous friendship, and joyous friendship will come to you.

Whatever it is that you desire, make it happen. It might take time and practice and repetition, but I promise that as long as your intentions are pure and positive, so will be your life.

Now go make magic.

Never forget that your worth comes from something greater than your Biology grade, and from Someone greater that the one who broke your heart.

You aren’t too cool for Christ in college. Christ is a necessity for you in your life. He can hold your hand during your heartbreaks and failures and celebrate with you when you get the text back or a passing grade in foreign language. He loves for you and cares for you more than your sorority or fraternity ever will.

So buy your books, do your homework, but never forget when you are walking to you 8:00 a.m. you regretfully signed up for, to look up. Look at the clouds and the sky and thank your creator that in a big big world with many beautiful things, He still loves our messy hearts even more. So this one is for the boys for the King. This life is for the One who laid down His life.

I promise college is more fun when you dance with your Savior. Follow His lead and let him take you on a journey where you can find your purpose. You may not know where you are going, but you do know who you are following.

So never forget that although classes may be hard, and your metabolism may be slowing down–God is still good. He turns our ashes into beauty and our trials into our testimony. Do life with your creator and I promise you that you will have more than you need.

Romans 8:28 “And we know God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.”

ASU Students Push For A Healthier Dining Hall To Counter 'Freshman 15' Fears

The freshman 15 is an avoidable curse, but many students will continue to follow into its trap.

642

Arizona State University students are pushing for change within the downtown Phoenix dining hall as they strive to avoid the infamous freshman 15.

The downtown Phoenix campus offers fewer dining options than the Tempe campus and has a less appetizing dining hall. The freshman 15 is a common scare among students living in the dorms, who are often freshman.

The freshman 15 is defined as a student who gains 15 pounds or more in their first year of college. Studies prove the average freshman does not exercise the right amount, is sleep deprived, has a poor diet, increases their stress level, alcohol consumption, and fatty food intake, which is most likely causing their weight gain.

Lauren Hernandez

Daniella Rudoy, a journalism major and fitness instructor at the SDFC, relived her freshman year as she provided tips for incoming freshman.

"There are a lot of workouts you can do in your dorm room as long as you have access to YouTube or a floor. You can go on a run, a walk, or do exercises that do not require equipment," Rudoy said in support of college fitness.

Rudoy said that mental health, fitness, and nutrition all correlate with one another.

"I follow the saying abs are made in the kitchen. So if you are working out day and night, but eating a giant pizza and chicken wings with a pack of beer when you come home you aren't doing yourself much good," Rudoy said.

Lauren Hernandez

The main cause for weight gain is increased alcohol consumption. 80 percent of college students drink and this includes binge drinking, which is unhealthy for many reasons.

Students who do not drink are most likely gaining weight because of their exposure to an all-you-can-eat dining hall. The downtown Phoenix campus offers a salad bar as their only consistent healthy option for students, therefore students are left eating hamburgers, fries, and pizza.

"I haven't been to the dining hall this semester. Last semester, I went because I had no other options. I am a vegetarian and the dining hall is not accommodating to those with allergies or food restrictions. I find it very difficult to find vegetarian options," Lexi Varrato, a journalism major said.

Lauren Hernandez

Varrato explained that she believes the freshman 15 is "100 percent real" and that incoming freshman should research their meal plans and ask their school how their dietary restrictions will be accommodated before purchasing a non-refundable meal plan.

Megan Tretter, a nursing major at Seattle University emphasized that not every dining hall is like ASU's and that the freshman 15 is "definitely not a problem" at her school.

"I always eat healthy at my dining hall. There are a lot of good and healthy options at Seattle University. I usually go to the smoothie line in the morning, have a salad for lunch, and make myself an acai bowl after work with avocado toast in our floor's kitchen," Tretter said in support of her school's strive for healthy options.

College students across the United States have healthier dining options than ASU, but many colleges still face the same problems that students here are facing.

Tara Shultz, a journalism major at ASU believes she has avoided the "very real" freshman 15 by living at home.

"I believe the freshman 15 targets dorm residence and first-year students who do not live at home as they do not have their parents as a guide and are forced to eat at a dining hall that only serves fatty foods," Shultz emphasized.

Lauren Hernandez

The downtown Phoenix campus offers students access to the SDFC, YMCA, and Taylor Place gym, where students can take group fitness classes, run on a track, play basketball, or swim. Alternative options for students are purchasing a membership at Orangetheory or EOS Fitness.

Most students agreed with journalism major Vanessa Gonzalez that they have little time to work out due to their workload, but many students like Varrato, Tretter, and Rudoy explained that they try to work out every day as it is a stress reliever and it enriches their mental health.

Steve Fiorentino, the owner of Powered Up Nutrition encourages college students to learn what they are putting in their bodies.

"I think it starts with nutrition. Students believe they can outwork a bad diet and I believe that is their number one mistake. My advice is to stop eating fast foods and start eating whole and healthy foods along with supplements," Fiorentino stated.

The freshman 15 is an avoidable curse, but many students will continue to follow into its trap. The campus dining hall is not always the reason to blame as students have the option to decrease their meal plans, become active, and make healthy choices!
