Journaling is great, but this is better.

By Ebin Barnett
A manifesto from our co-founder Ebin Barnett

You were born into this world with yourself and you’ll leave this world with yourself. In between, you have your thoughts, your desires, your actions, your memories… your life… it’s your life.  

When’s the last time you asked yourself What do I want?” I mean…

“What do I really want?” 

I’m not talking about money, cars, houses or stuff to fill them. I’m talking about happiness, health, peace, fun, fulfillment… love… You know, the stuff that really matters. It’s the way something makes you feel that you are really after. It’s not the things.  

Well, how do you get it? Do you already have it? Maybe even a little? Do you even know what it looks and feels like? What’s stopping you from getting it right now? Have you created a plan to get it?

When’s the last time you really listened to yourself from the depths of your soul?  

The vastness inside you

Have you asked yourself the tough questions to peel back your own onion layers to your core?  Do you think you’re ready for that? Do you know what you’ll find there? That’s where it gets juicy.

Getting real with the person in the mirror is tough. But we guarantee the answer to all of these questions and more are there inside you. You will find them if you’re brave enough to journey there… into the dark, eternal vastness inside.

The greatest journey of our lives doesn’t require a single footstep.

-Ebin

You are your greatest teacher. You are all that you need to feel happy, to feel joy, to feel passion… to really feel alive and find your treasure. That’s where your heart will be. But to have that, you need to know you. You must listen to you.

Find the still quiet dark place inside and let your own internal compass be your guide.

Helping you find your own internal compass has been what we at Intention Inspired have been doing… by accident. We didn’t even know that’s what we were doing. We just started a simple challenge called the 30 Days of Brave Challenge that resonated with the souls of hundreds of thousands of seekers. Souls that hadn’t been listening to that compass inside of them simply because they needed a spark to be inspired, a spark to push their internal limits, a spark to ask themselves the right questions. When they finally did, the world opened up to them like a beautiful blooming flower.

Through the challenges series we call journies we have created here at Intention Inspired we’ve seen bad marriages end and new ones blossom with love.  We’ve seen stale careers crash and burn and new passions rise from their ashes. We’ve seen people overcome anxiety, depression, personality disorder, PTSD, Bi-polar issues and severe stress. We’ve seen people go back to school, get degrees, get promotions, lose the weight, rekindle a lost love, get an organ transplant, become published authors, become life coaches, break the cycle of hate and start living for themselves, finally forgive someone and even finally forgive themselves! We’ve watched them grow from just journaling empty words on a page to truly journeying inside themselves to their very core.  To their own compass! That’s what we’re talking about when we say

Don’t just journal, journey

 

When you finally find and connect with your internal compass, the world around you becomes a little bit more ‘enchanted’. There’s a glow to the ordinary things that you never saw before. The small things somehow give you BIG feelings of joy and satisfaction. You make better decisions and steer your life in the direction you were meant to go. You’re not afraid to say ‘No’ but love to find ways to say ‘YES’! You lose that anxiety and stress of what might happen tomorrow and start getting excited about what tomorrow’s journey might bring. You’re tapped into you and there’s no stopping you now.

Treat Yourself

Make each day a little journey worth remembering. Let Intention Inspired guide you there. Get your Intention Inspired membership here and see where your compass leads you when you finally have the chance to find it…

Hi! I'm a husband, father of two beautiful adopted baby girls and a 10-Year-Cubical-Reject. After a 15 year battle with alcohol, my life came crashing down and out of the ashes, Intention Inspired was born with my brother Matt. This is my re-awakening journey to sobriety and living an intention inspired lifestyle. I am hoping to help you do the same. Loving the Journey- Ebin

I still don’t know where to begin. There is so much that clutters my mind. Old ways, thoughts, feelings. How do I stop that, even for a few seconds and how do I know what is really important to me. Other than health, I have a list and yet, I cannot know for sure I know how to make that happen.

Well life sends you off in all kinds of directions. I started a on line business and its been very slow in taking off..frustrated and impatient..I sat down and started a new journey on paper…I decided after a lot of writing that I am going to open a mini shop..my sister offered me a room to use in her hair salon…so off I go again on another crazy adventure…and Babygagaa.ca is going to take off soon enough…that is what I want right now…love and light…

Ebin,
Those are the sparks that sets other’s lives ablaze. Thanks again to you and Matt for taking the time and utilizing your own Brave to do so. Surely took some Courage!

I am SO ready to consciously surround my self with positive energy, with DO-ers, with adventurers. I’ve always blamed my environment for holding me back – but it’s time to take the reins and choose my own corral. It is true, negative breeds negative, therefore I am taking a new road and journeying with those in love with life. AND this is a good start. Thanks for providing the venue Matt and Ebin!

Hey… Totally excited for COMPASS! The 30 day Brave Challenge came into my life when i was going thru a pretty bad depression…i had isolated myself to the point that my social skills were starting to diminish..feeling alone, wondering if i should admit myself to the hospital and barely holding on…BUT, and this is a big BUT, i was not without hope! There it was….Intention Inspired! There is no doubt in my mind this was going to be the start of something good i my life…between the challenge & blogs & guidance & support with others challengers & of course, inspiration, that was and is all good stuff…the key that opened the door to my journey! Shortly, COMPASS will be launched! I know this is going to be amazing…i believe COMPASS will light the path to places i have never been and I am BRAVE now (remember☺)…sincere thanks to Ebin & Matt (and all who had a part in this)… going to end with a favorite quote…
