How to Set Your Intention and Act Wholeheartedly

Setting Intention

Setting an intention is a way of pointing yourself in one direction, toward an important value or goal. It is a way of identifying a quality you wish to nurture in your life.  Setting an intention can be done skillfully or unskillfully.

First, lets go over how to unskillfully set an intention.  It is not skillful or effective to be rigid or attached to an ideal about your intention.  For example, is your intention is to foster ease and self-acceptance, don’t expect to become 100% relaxed or self-accepting after just a few minutes.  Be careful that you don’t make your intention, no matter how wonderful or positive, something else on your to-do list or something you must achieve at all costs.  Recognize the trap of judging yourself harshly or doubting your intention if things don’t change right away. Don’t fall into the trap of judgment and doubt.

On the other hand, a skillful intention is more like a friendly guide. Acknowledge from the beginning that important changes take time. You, like everyone else, must make the effort to return repeatedly to the goal you seek.

Your intention, to become more self-accepting, for example, is better thought of as a direction you have selected for yourself.  The practice you choose is a way to enter on a path moving in that direction. Many conditions and factors are at work as you move along your path.  What is important is that you keep moving in the right direction. Being friendly with yourself as you travel the path is vital. Being patient with yourself as you move toward your goal is critical.

Would you like to know your life’s purpose?  You can find it here

You can think of your intention as  clear and strong statement of an important value quality, or goal you have selected for yourself.  Through the single act of making the statement, you have opened the door for a profound shift in your life.


Acting Wholeheartedly

To act wholeheartedly means to do something with all of your attention and energy.  Establishing presence and acting from clear intention will support you in embracing what you do wholeheartedly.  In just a few minutes of establishing presence and stating an intention, you are invited to embrace the practice you have selected wholeheartedly.  That practice could be studying the AGLs (Aquariana Gateway Lessons), any type of meditation or yoga, affirmations or chants or mantras, prayer, or something else.

You might have to experiment a bit with being wholehearted.  Much of what we do in life is done without full attention, or without real commitment to the activity or process, for a variety of reasons.  So, as you begin your practice give yourself some room to grow. At first, you might not feel wholehearted about whatever you have chosen to do.  You might not even like it much, if at all. That is alright and to be expected. Just continue to do it.

To get the most out of your practice, start with activities that resonate with you, or that seem especially interesting, or are perfect for something happening in your life right now.  As you work with the various practices over time, notice yow different ones fit in the different corners and phases of your life.

Do you know which career or line of work you are best suited for in your life?  If your answer is no, you can find it here

When you have selected practices that seem to fit, nurture a willingness to experiment with them, without expecting too much at first.  Even if you feel awkward, silly, or embarrassed, just acknowledge how you feel and then keep on with the practice.

You might find it easier to be wholehearted if you let go of trying to change anything or make anything happen as you do your practice.  This is a paradox that is true of many of the practices you will learn via this work. In the realm of transformation and growth, the more you reach for something, the farther away it can seem.

So let go of any attachment to outcome and just dive right in!  Instead of vigilantly monitoring what is happening, looking for changes, or judging yourself, just let go and do it.  That way, you are truly acting wholeheartedly and, paradoxically, are maximizing your chances for change and growth.

Mindfulness vs Meditation vs Imagery

Mindfulness is the awareness that arises as you pay attention on purpose with a friendly and accepting attitude to whatever is present.  Being mindful means being present consciously. Being mindful is at the heart of your self care time. Mindfulness of your breath is how you establish presence.  Be open to being mindful in more places and in different ways in your daily life.

Meditation is an activity of directing your attention, so you will become more aware and more understanding and wise.  Meditation is about much more than simple relaxation. Some meditation methods emphasize narrowing your attention to a simple object or a quality.  Other meditation practices focus upon developing clearer and deeper awareness of what is happening. Both approaches are useful. They both promote calm attention and awareness for feeling more ease and peace, for greater understanding, and for the development of desirable qualities, such as kindness, compassion or joy.

Imagery is the thought process that involves and uses the senses: sight, hearing, smelling, feeling, tasting and the sense of movement and position.  You use your imagination to facilitate communication between perception, emotion, and bodily change. It is one of the world’s oldest healing modalities.

Acting wholeheartedly is central to all these activities.

What is Metaphysics?


Oh, the benefits of living a purpose-driven life are priceless.

Wouldn’t it be great to have a clear purpose in life?

Do you ever wonder what the heck you are supposed to be doing here?  Of course your do!  But what if you don’t know what your life purpose is?

  • What if you are a lousy goal setter, easily distracted, easily thrown off course, and very often full of self-doubt?
  • Maybe you have just graduated from college, and aren’t sure which direction to head.
  • Perhaps you’ve just been fired from a job or retired and don’t know what you should do now.
  • Maybe you have a number of interests and don’t know exactly which to focus on.
  • Want to know where your life is headed?
  • Need to understand your past?
  • Could you use a full life map?

Do you want information you can actually use for the rest of your life?

Introduction to the Aquariana Gateway Lessons and Project, Part 2


The Aquariana Gateway is a weekly program devoted to the study of spiritual metaphysics for the purpose of self improvement, self development, self transformation, self mastery.  


Transform yourself and transform the world!

Greetings Divine Nation!  

I am Minerva, your Aquariana Gateway Guide.

This is PART 2 of the Introduction of to the Aquariana Gateway Lessons.  Please take a few minutes to read on Part 1 on the website or watch the Introduction Part 1 video, if you have not already done so.

It does not matter who you are, what your past is, or what your problems are, have been, or will be.  These lessons will help you.

Change your mind and change your life.  Transform yourself – and transform the world!

This work is getting a lot of attention and it occurred to me that a fuller introduction might prove helpful for clearer understanding AND to help you introduce others to the mission and purpose to this undertaking.  I am thrilled to have this task because I have been so enthusiastically encouraged by so many others to carry on!

I have been asked, “What makes this program special / unique / different from all these other similar sounding programs like The Secret? What makes this program important?  

The answer is, these are 10 things that set this program apart, (just off the top of my head) that make this program valuable.  (If you think of more please share those good ideas in the comments of any video on this channel.

  1. This is not a simple prosperity based program
  2. Many people have failed to fulfill the promise of the Secret because catalyzing information has been (I believe intentionally) left out of the Secret
  3. The goal and purpose of this work is not focused solely on materialism
  4. The goal and purpose of this work is not based upon doing away with capitalism
  5. One of the goals and purposes of this work is to make capitalism more humane
  6. This program is a step by step, gradually unfolding, process of both self improvement, self development, self transformation and self mastery
  7. This program is concerned with all the different areas of our lives
  8. This program includes what I call ‘principals and insight provided by mainstream magic’
  9. This program seeks to serve the development and ongoing support of a like-minded community development both here and around the world
  10. This community of like-minded souls seeks to change the world peacefully, nonviolently, incrementally, non destructively, with love and light, one person willingly at a time


Each one of these topics will likely become their own subject for a video, so give me time to get to that, please : )

Let me provide a little insight about what I mean by what I just outlined:

The AGL is NOT a simple law of attraction program though it does contain the principals of the universal law of attraction).

The Aquariana Gateway Lessons offer what is missing from The Secret as it is currently published- and as far as I am aware-,what is also missing from other Law of Attraction type programs.   

Let me explain further,..The Secret for example, tells you how the law of attraction, for example, works. It teaches you what to do. I will teach you HOW to do it so that effective dynamism will be brought into action.  I offer what is MISSING from “The Secret”  and these other philosophies as they are currently presented and the step by step process you MUST follow in order to bring those otherwise valid teachings, to life and full power for you.

And The AGL is presented as a start to finish process and program, not just a collection of ideas and principles.


Think of it like this, …


The AGL vs ‘The Secret” is the difference between reading about how to drive a car and actually practicing driving a car. The AGL teach you how to mind mend.   Or, using the same car as an example, it is the difference between learning the importance of how to maintain a car and getting inside info about and access to the best products and services and mechanics to use to get and keep it running and in good repair.

I am simply here to help you reclaim your latent power and to help you free yourself from old outdated mental shackles.  I cannot do any of this for you.  You must take personal responsibility to do it for yourself.  “The only way out, is in”.  You must do the work on yourself.  The magic lies within you.  I can just show you how to access and unleash it.  You have to connect to Divine Source –  your own inner knowing / intuition / connection to psychic energy.  AGL include  proven techniques for activating your own “Eye of Horus” and dormant DNA.

Some really insightful person said, ‘The truth cannot be told it must be realized’.  You have to do your part to change the world by making yourself better.  Master metaphysics and master your life.

The AGLs are only available here, through me.  That is why I know what you will learn every step of the way.  

These lessons have been handed down to me -person to person- from 4 generations ago – I am the fifth generation and the last to have added to them over the last 30 years.  Lots of people have bits and pieces of some of this content.  No one has it all except me! That is why I have accepted the responsibility of leading your through it.  I believe it is my purpose for being here and for having been through all the ‘stuff’ I have been through which led me to actually using this inherited parts of this program to save my own life—I KNOW it works!  I have simply added to it more  modern and user friendly for the 21st Century Initiate.

This work is non-religious & non-denominational.  All faiths are welcome and respected.  None of this work requires ‘belief’ in the religious sense of that word. You can believe what you wish.  Frankly, no belief is required for this to work.  What is required is understanding and practice.

The focus here is on the mental and spiritual for self help, self improvement, self development and self transformation.  “Change yourself and you change the world”.  All the power lies within you and you are worthy of embracing it.

These AGLs principles and exercises are simple… but the catch is you MUST REGULARLY PRACTICE.  As with anything else that is to be mastered, practice makes better, and eventually perfect.  Regular practice is ‘mandatory’ if you can expect to see promised results.  Take the Lessons in order to get the understanding you need for practical progress.  Practicing these lessons as instructed will change your brain.  That’s right!  The brain’s physiology WILL change resulting in healing, transformation and activation of more of your brain’s untapped potential.

You will learn how to align your feelings with  your desires.  You will learn proper breathing techniques to facilitate not only stress reduction but also to empower prayers and affirmations.

You will learn how to activate and master yourself, the laws of manifestation and attraction, and the universal laws of life and metaphysics.

Over the course of just the beginner lessons you will learn how to :

  • Improve your physical health naturally without spending any money
  • You will learn how to lose weight healthfully without drugs, fad or extreme diets- and again, without spending any money
  • You will learn how to foster peace within yourself and within your home
  • You will learn how to master the laws of attraction for love, money, success and ascension
  • You will learn how to become a better, more authentic you!


There are only three things you have to do regularly to get the most out of the AGLs:

  1. Watch and review these lessons as often as you can, week by week, in order
  2. Practice these lessons as often as you can
  3. Donate to support this channel and the GAP work as often and as regularly as you can.  Every $1 makes a difference.  By helping this work grow you help change the world.


Please join me on the Aquariana Gateway journey!  Remember, go in order, spend at least 1 full week (yes, 7 days) on each lesson prior to moving on to the next.  Give yourself time to deeply absorb the information and to impress it onto your subconscious mind.  These fundamentals must be learned and mastered for success.  

It does not matter who you are, what your past is, or what your problems are, have been, or will be.  These lessons will help you.  

Remember, change your mind and change your life.  Transform yourself – and transform the world!

Wishing you love, light, peace and prosperity,


Introduction to the work, Part 1

The Aquariana Gateway Lessons lead you step by step on the passage thru the gates of ascension and opening of the way successfully into the Light filled side of the Age of Aquarius.  

There are hundreds of Aquariana Gateway Lessons.  Each one is related to self improvement, self development, self transformation, and self mastery.  These lessons are a blend of approaches founded in psychology of the subconscious and superconscious used over the last 100 years to help millions turn themselves and their lives around for greater happiness, harmony, satisfaction, prosperity and a higher level of life enjoyment.

The Aquariana Gateway Lessons function as the cornerstone of the Gateway Aquariana Project serving as the key to unlock self transformation – resulting in life transformation- and world transformation.  

I am Minerva, your metaphysician, minister of mystical medicine, and Aquariana Gateway Guide.

I will provide you with mystical medicine prescriptions for the mind, soul and spirit.  My purpose is to help reduce human, environmental, and animal abuse and help transform the world into a place where creativity, capitalism and kindness merge and blend together, rather than break apart.  I hope you will choose to join me.  I need your help to make this a fuller reality.

What I present is directions for  (in a nutshell) how to change the world by changing ourselves and thereby inspiring change in others who are touched by us.  I hope you find the content to be both inspiring and helpful.

I believe the ripple effect of positive light and divine love is the only constructive way to bring about a world we all will be happy to live in and satisfy the purpose of the Age of Aquarius and the Divines’ intention for our lives. This information is not religious, but it is spiritual – as well as evidence based science related to energetics, neurogenesis, and psychology.


Here you will find mystical medicine to heal the soul and spirit, help clear the mind, and serve as inspiration for self transformation and life transformation.
