Huyayay dear relative. I am another you and you are another me.
Have you ever stopped to ponder the direction of your life?
Have you noticed the absence of a clear intention guiding your steps?
As I reflected upon my own journey siting at the top of a mountain over two decades ago, I realized that I have been walking through life by default, drifting aimlessly without a distinct purpose.
It was time to pause and ask myself some probing questions, to awaken the dormant intention within me.
What is the driving force behind my actions and decisions? Am I simply going with the flow, following the path laid out before me, or am I actively shaping my own destiny? Have I allowed fear or societal expectations to dictate my choices, suppressing my true desires and passions? How has this lack of intention affected my fulfillment and sense of purpose?
Have I taken the time to explore my values and beliefs, to understand what truly ignites my soul? Or have I been caught up in the busyness of life, never pausing to listen to the whispers of my heart? What dreams and aspirations lie dormant within me, waiting to be acknowledged and pursued?
Am I content with a life of mediocrity, settling for less than what I am capable of? Or do I have the courage to dream big, to envision a life that aligns with my deepest desires and aspirations? What would my life look like if I lived each day with intention and purpose?
It was time to reclaim my power and set a clear intention for my journey.
What do I truly want to achieve? What legacy do I wish to leave behind? How can I align my actions with my values and create a life that reflects my authentic self?
As I walk on my own warrior's quest, I invite you to join me. Let us unravel the layers of conditioning and complacency, and discover the untapped potential within us. Together, let's walk the path of intention, consciously shaping our lives and creating a future that resonates with our deepest passions and aspirations.
Are you ready to awaken from the slumber of living by default? Are you willing to take the reins of your life and set a clear intention for your journey?
The time has come to step into your power and embrace a life of purpose.
The following is the story of how I learned about the power of setting intentions.
Let us embark on this transformative journey together, as we forge our paths with clear intent and walk towards a future filled with fulfillment and joy.
My story begins in the heights of the Andes.
In the year 2000, as I entered my twenties, I found myself in a state of emotional discomfort. I felt stuck, lacking the inspiration and confidence to change my circumstances. However, everything changed when I had a profound experience in nature. It was my first ascent to the top of a mountain, Apu Pichincha, overlooking the city of Quito, my birthplace.
During this transformative encounter, I was granted a powerful glimpse into the life I truly desired. This vision became the catalyst that propelled me to take ownership and responsibility for creating my own destiny. It all began with the magical teachings of setting intentions for my journey.
This experience marked the beginning of my conscious path, leading me to embark on a journey to Chile for my first vision quest. Guided by the wisdom of the White Condor lineage of the Andes, I prepared myself to seek clarity and purpose during my time fasting and meditating at the sacred Condor Blanco mountain in the 9th region of Chile.
This is what I learned about the power of setting a clear intention. Welcome to the Warrior's path!

Are you ready to take the first step?
Once upon a time, there was a young adventurer who embarked on a journey to climb a majestic mountain. Excitement filled his heart as he set foot on the rugged path, ready to conquer the challenges that lay ahead. However, as he began his ascent, he realized something was missing. He hadn't set a clear intention for why he was climbing the mountain. Though determined to reach the summit, he felt a sense of emptiness without a deeper purpose fueling his steps.
As he continued to ascend, fatigue started to creep in, weighing down his spirit. Doubt whispered in his ear, questioning the purpose of his journey.
The young adventurer found himself at a crossroads, unsure if he should press on or turn back. But just as he was about to surrender to uncertainty, he stumbled upon a breathtaking clearing. The panoramic view that greeted his eyes was a spectacle of unparalleled beauty. The setting sun painted the sky with hues of gold, casting a warm glow upon the clouds beneath him.
In that awe-inspiring moment, a realization dawned upon him. He understood that the true essence of his climb was not solely about reaching the physical summit but rather about embracing the beauty and inspiration that awaited him along the way. It was about connecting with the vastness of nature, finding solace in its grandeur, and summoning the courage he needed for his next great adventure.
With newfound clarity, he closed his eyes, placed his hand over his heart, and set a clear intention from the depths of his being. He vowed to cherish each step, to immerse himself in the journey, and to draw strength from the surrounding beauty. Energized by this profound realization, he pressed forward with unwavering determination. Step by step, he overcame the challenges, transcending his own limitations, and finally stood triumphantly upon the summit, his heart soaring with a sense of accomplishment.
This experience taught him the power of intention, reminding him that the purpose behind our actions can infuse even the simplest endeavors with profound meaning. As the young adventurer descended the mountain, he carried with him the lessons learned and a renewed zest for life's adventures. And as he embarked on his next endeavor, he knew that setting a clear intention would guide him through the twists and turns, ensuring that every step he took was purposeful and aligned with his heart's true desires.
This story illustrates the power of setting an intention from the heart. When we set an intention that is aligned with our values and passions, it gives us the motivation and energy to take action and achieve our goals.
So, how can we set an intention that inspires us to action?
Here are 7 steps to get you started:
Take some time to reflect on your values and passions. What is important to you? What brings you joy and fulfillment?
Set a specific goal that aligns with your values and passions. Make sure it is something that you truly want and that it is achievable.
Get clear on why you want to achieve this goal. What will it bring you? How will it make you feel?
Write down your intention in a clear and concise statement. Make sure it is something that resonates with you and that you can easily remember.
Visualize yourself achieving your goal. Imagine how you will feel, what you will see, and what you will hear.
Take action towards your goal. Break it down into smaller, manageable steps and take the first step.
Remind yourself of your intention often. Keep it visible -make a HeartMap- and remind yourself why you are taking action.
Think of your goal as the summit of the mountain, and your intention as the compass that guides you on your journey. As you set your intention from your heart, you will find that the path becomes clearer and the climb becomes easier. So, take a moment to reflect on your values and passions, set a clear intention, and start climbing towards your summit. The view from the top will be worth it.
Remember, setting an intention from the heart is not a one-time thing. It's an ongoing process that requires constant reflection and adjustment. As you progress on your journey, you may find that your values and passions change, and that's okay. It's important to reassess your intentions and make sure they are still aligned with your goals.
Also, don't be afraid to ask for help and support along the way. Having a community of like-minded individuals who are also on the journey of self-discovery and growth can be incredibly valuable. They can provide you with guidance, support, and accountability.
Finally, don't forget to practice gratitude and celebrate your progress. As you take action towards your goal, remind yourself of the beauty and inspiration that it will bring. And when you reach the summit, take a moment to appreciate the view and celebrate your accomplishment.
"Nobody else knows your reason for being. You do. Your bliss guides you to it. When you follow your bliss, when you follow your path to joy, your conversation is of joy, your feelings are of joy — you're right on the path of that which you intended when you came forth into this physical body"
