We all strive to make our dreams a reality and manifest our biggest passions. But how do we get there? Despite what they tell you, it really isn’t as easy as setting your mind to something. But this is the beginning! You simply decide you want something and this is where intentions come into play. I know, easier said than done! Lucky you, we’re revealing our secrets.
Not like setting a goal, when you set an intention for what you want in life, you’re tapping into the flow of creation. The universal power that rules us all. (If you’ve read the book The Secret, you know what we’re talking about; and if not please pick up a copy – it will change your life, promise!) Intentions require a decision, emotion, visualization, control and commitment.
DECISION: Personally, I begin the manifestation process with a notebook and a vision. In this “notebook of dreams”, I frequently jot down what I want to see happen – my Intentions. Usually a list of 5 or 6 life aspirations each season are found in this journal. It’s important to set a timeline in my opinion.
EMOTION: Next to the intentions, I use emotion to describe how it will feel for me to achieve my biggest aspirations. I describe these feelings so vividly that I almost feel as if these inhabitations have already happened for me.
VISUALIZATION: Here at The Pure Candle HQ, we take our visualization VERY seriously! Vision boards are almost always created to set our Intentions. Clipping and pasting images is all a part of the flow of creation. Even in the notebook of dreams, I paste images from magazines of things I want to see happen. This helps set the mood and the tone for intention setting.
COMMITMENT: Every single day, do something that takes you one step further in achieving your intention. Commit to the intention! You know the saying “Fake it until you make it” ---- seriously, try it! In example, if you’re intending to improve your confidence – fake it! Walk with the confidence you want and eventually, it will flow naturally.
In even better news, we’ve made Intention Setting even easier for you. If you haven’t tried our Intentions candle collection, here’s how it works:
1.) Select an Intention Candle! Your choice between: Joy, Clarity, Peace, Gratitude, Inspiration, Prosperity, Love, Healing and Health. What do you want more of in your life?
2.) Light the candle.
3.) Visualize and imagine the quality possessing your life.
4.) Meditate with the candle or recite a mantra. “Peace surrounds me in my life” or “I can feel prosperity entering my life,” or “I feel my worries diminishes as I achieve clarity.” See how easy that is?
Our intention candles are also made with healing essential oils to give an added aromatherapy benefit to your intention setting. Cheers to improving our lives, together!
