If you’re familiar with the teachings of Abraham Hicks, you’ve probably come across mention of the phrase Segment Intending.
Segment Intending is a process of setting your intention that Abraham outlines in Ask and It Is Given. It is a powerful tool for resetting your vibration, and putting yourself into a state of allowing in order to achieve whatever it is you want to manifest.
In this post I explain what segment intending is, how you can use it, and offer a few examples to help you get started.
What Is Segment Intending? How To Use The Process
Before you can understand segment intending, you need to have a basic grasp of how the Law of Attraction works.
Whatever energy you hold, right now, builds momentum and begins to attract similar experiences into your life. This means that if you learn how to pay attention to your energy, you can begin to gauge what types of experiences will come to you.
This is the core idea behind segment intending. As Abraham says:
Segment intending is just about being aware of yourself in your surroundings and what’s coming next. It’s a redefining by you of the intentions that you hold in this second.
Once you become aware of this, you can then start to take actions that will help you to realign, or pre-pave your energy for the next portion of your day.
The process then, is simply the process of resetting, and taking the time to set a clear intention for what you want to experience. Your intention is a powerful creative force, and when you couple that intention with an open vibration of allowing, you amplify the power of whatever action you are taking in that moment.
Thus, you can use this process of resetting and re-focusing any time you shift from one activity to another during your day.
A new segment is any period of time that your focused within – it’s always a Now – where your intentions are changing, if even slightly, from the segment preceding it.
3 Examples of Segment Intending
Let’s take a look at 3 different examples of how to use segment intending.
To start, let’s imagine it’s the morning. Ideally, you’ve already developed a morning routine that includes meditation, and hopefully you have included a few of your main intentions for the day.
As you begin to get up from your meditation and start your day, you have a number of different tasks or activities you could choose from. When you do not segment intend, these options might seem overwhelming, but instead you can choose to focus on only one task at a time. Simply deciding on the action you want to take is an important part of segment intending.
Then, once you decide, you can increase the power of your actions by closing your eyes for a few seconds and imagining yourself working through whatever task lies ahead of you. This will help you to pre-pave the action itself, so it will feel more effortless and will have more impact.
Now, imagine that this action has to do with your work, and after an hour or two, you begin to become tired of dealing with your coworkers. A project deadline is looming, and something isn’t going as plan. Maybe you got distracted or pulled off task in order to deal with some other emergency that cropped up.
Once you notice that this has happened – once you notice your energy has lowered – you can re-set and reshape your energy.
So, once again, you can use segment intending to reorient yourself and get back on track. Maybe you are re-setitng to get back to your original task, or maybe you’re shifting from working on a task by yourself to going into a meeting. Either way, you can take a moment to re-align your energy.
As you go through your day, you can train yourself to segment intend every time you shift tasks or actions.
The bigger the shift in your action, the more important it is to release your resistance, and approach the new action from a fresh perspective.
So, for the last example, imagine you’ve now finished your work-day and it’s time to go home. You can use your walk to your car, or your drive home, to now segment intend how you want your evening to go. You can imagine cooking a delicious meal, enjoying time with your family, or even just watching your favorite sitcom.
Again, it doesn’t matter what the action is, what matters is your ability to focus and align with it.
