A favor to ask...
... I feel kinda strange doing this... Well, I'm off to take my GREs tomorrow, and I was feeling pretty good, really feeling in vibrational harmony with it, taking whatever inspired action I felt needed to be done, studying the material, even printed out a pretend scorecard to get me visualizing, and I was really feeling confident, but doubts are starting to creep into my mind, This is the first time I'm using intention-manifestation for something so tangible and big (I guess big is only in my perception). so I'm requesting a favor from all of you - if you have a moment, just please intend with all your belief that I ace my GREs.

I just completed a 'big exam' myself and will post a "result" from my intention practice back in the "what are your intentions" thread, since many of us are using that thread for specific intentions, but just for you right now (it's 609 AM in Montana, hope you get this where you are !.....
I studied like anything for my exam last Thursday, took 5 days off from work, got a back ache from sitting so long, etc., was doing 81 to 87% on practice tests which were heralded to be "just like" the one I was taking...
...then I started the test...the first 124 questions or so looked like they came from Mars (!) (and I'm an experienced test taker with some real good history of scores etc).
....I found myself thinking between questions, just in the back of my mind...whether or not I should retake this one if I failed it...not good.....
...then it hit me...all I have now is my intention... no more time to prepare...no new ideas about preparing....any thoughts about what I should do if i flunk the beast are certainly no good.....
....so, no kidding, I stopped, wrote out my intention on my scratch sheet:
In an easy and relaxed manner,
In a healthy and positive way,
For the highest good of all,
In its own perfect time, with its own perfect timing,
In good faith and in good humor,
I intend: A passing score on this exam today.
....I looked at that, cleared my mind and sank into it, concentrating on every bit of it.
...then I went back to the exam....
The next question--no problem, the next 3 or 4 questions no problem, the next one some question but pretty good idea....the rest of that test just flew by, with some questions certainly but with NO MORE doubt in my mind, just easy focus, concentration and a good amount of confidence and calm.
This was a two 3.5 hour block exam with an hour in between. I finished that (it was the first) block in about 2.5 hours. Don't usually do this but went back to look over the first 124 questions, changed maybe 3 at the most. The rest didn't look as bad as they did to begin with, but I could see that they were in a pretty different style wording wise than what I'd been studying, maybe that's what threw me off.
So, what happened there? Going back to my intention calmed me down, gave me focus? AT LEAST that! And that isn't just a hill of beans either. A multiple choice standardized exam (compared to one that is related to a course one is taking, say in college) is from a different planet after all and how you feel while doing one of these certainly can have as much an effect as your knowledge base, in my opinion.
And certainly I believe that re-focusing on my intention (which has been active on a daily basis before this exam) may have done more than just "calmed me down" and focused my thinking.
We'll see! I thought the experience remarkable, really remarkable, there was a definite, tangible and immediate change right then and there, and right after strongly focusing on my intention by stopping everything to write it down.
That itself is worth something to me. (Now I hope I passed the bugger )
Best of luck to you today!
