How The Eiffel Tower Taught Me About Intention...


I just left Paris, a city known for its beauty, food and culture. The most eye-catching beauty I witnessed though was how many people and cultures were represented here in this place and how their differences seemed to not matter to anyone.

Maybe it was the time of year, maybe it was the places we toured but everywhere we went it appeared there was a beautiful mixture of race and religion, especially at the Eiffel tower. As we stood in line to purchase our ticket to go up this gigantic masterpiece, we were surrounded by a multitude of languages and people from many different parts of the World- languages, tattoos, head dressings and sequin were all drawn to this tower.

It was soo heartwarming to witness the joining of humanity as we all wanted to experience this elevated perspective- elevated in both physical orientation and spirit.

The Eiffel tower was built for the World’s Fair in 1889, an event created to bring people together from around the world.

Intention is everything... always...even here. This piece of art continues to do what it had originally intended- bring people together from around the world.

And it certainly connected all of us who were there that day.

-Everyone wanted to take pictures with our loved ones from atop the tower.

-There were four of us moms, all speaking different languages, who refused to walk on the see-through-plexi-glass as all of our children jumped on it. We all felt connected and laughed at our “mom-selves.” We stood in solidarity and felt connected without being able to communicate a translatable word to each other.

- We all wanted to catch a glimpse of the beautiful sunset.

-All of our hearts appeared to feel elevated after being on the tower.

We all shared the same human experience here, regardless of skin color, race or religion.

Thank you beautiful Eiffel Tower for continuing to live your intention, even after all this time, inviting the world to come together with every step they take with you.

Are you living the life you intended? If your intention has recently clouded, which one step can you take to bring yourself back to your intention? What one step can you take, without judgement about where you’ve misstepped, that would bring you back toward your personal life intention? Take that step and watch your intention begin to fall into place again.

Intention is everything and thank you beautiful
Eiffel Tower, for living yours and connecting the many lives you touch everyday.

Beaucoup d’amour,

Erin Garay
