posticon The Power of Intention

Posted on   by

Spirit and Berna had a recent conversation about intention. Her question to them was Can you tell us more about the concept of intention?

Spirit

These are times of momentous changes on your planet. At one moment, you are enjoying the roses of summer. Then the roses fade and their petals fall to the earth. The trees change colors and their leaves fall to the earth. Your brothers and sisters, the animals of the earth, begin to hibernate.Read more
