When we desire something, the first thing we need to do is set an intention.
Often, our intentions are not strong enough. When this is the case, we end up sending mixed signals to the Universe. It is no wonder then that desires that are not backed by strong intentions take longer to manifest. We will have to struggle and stress ourselves a lot more when our intentions are not strong and clear.
One of the primary reasons for the inability to set clear intentions is that we often feel undeserving of what we desire. Many of us are conditioned to believe that life involves plenty of sacrifice and hardship and that an amazing life is the privilege of a chosen few. This is a self limiting belief that can make life boring and hard.
The first thing we need to be aware of is that everyone deserves to have a good life. No matter how a person appears on the surface, deep down he carries the same light in him as the one carried by a Saint or other Higher Being. Every single soul is a child of the Universe. People make mistakes, go through hardships and face challenges in order to learn life lessons and balance karmas. However, no one is less deserving because of who he is or what he might have done in the past.
So, before you set an intention, it is crucial that you first change any self limiting beliefs you may have about your right to deserve. To aid this shift, we can use written affirmations. Start by writing a page of the following affirmations in a journal every day. You can either write all of them or choose one that you resonate most with.
- I am a child of the Universe. I deserve to enjoy all the good that life has to offer.
- I deserve to have all of my heartfelt desires fulfilled.
- I open my arms to receive all that I have asked for. I truly deserve it.
After writing a page of this affirmation, draw the Reiki symbols Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen, Sei Hei Ki and Cho Ku Rei anywhere on the page. You can draw as many as you feel like. Give Reiki to the page. This will help strengthen your new positive belief and also heal any feelings of not deserving that may be buried deep in your subconscious. You could also write or say the following prayer to connect with Archangel Michael and take his assistance to heal self limiting beliefs.
“Dear Archangel Michael,
Please help me feel the truth of my own divine light. Please help me to see that I am a child of the Universe and that I deserve to have all my desires fulfilled. I request you to clear and heal all the self limiting beliefs that I carry in my subconscious. Thank you.”
Once you are clear about the fact that you deserve and have absorbed this new positive belief, start working on your intentions. Keep these pointers in mind as you work on your intentions.
- Writing is extremely powerful when it comes to intentions. Write your intention down in a journal. Write it in the present tense. Draw the Reiki symbols on the page and give Reiki to it once every day.
- Visualise how you would feel or what you would be doing if the intention has already manifested. For example, if your intention is to conceive and give birth to a child, visualise how it would feel to be carrying that baby and also to hold him or her in your arms after the birth. Visualise the details of the pregnancy and birth and make everything extremely positive. Feel it like it is happening now.
- If you feel any discomfort or fear as you set your intentions, call upon Archangel Michael for help. Talk to him and express your fears. His warrior like energies will help heal any blocks that you may be holding with respect to fulfilling your desires. If you are unable to pinpoint the exact fear, call upon Archangel Michael just before falling asleep. Ask him to work on your fears and blocks as you sleep. When we are asleep, our rational mind is at rest and we are naturally more open to healing. Do this every night until you feel extremely comfortable with your intentions.
- Once your intentions are set, do not worry about how they will manifest. Take any action that you need to in order to manifest your intention and then let go. Remember your intentions have been charged with Reiki. Reiki is an intelligent energy and we do not have to instruct it on how it should go about fulfilling our desires. It knows exactly how to manifest our desires and also the timing in which to manifest them. Set the intention, give positive energy to it every day and then let it go. If you begin to feel anxious about the manifestation, call upon Archangel Michael again and request him to help you let go.
Strong intentions produce clear results. ALWAYS! And with the loving unconditional support of Reiki and Archangel Michael, you will be well on your way towards living your desire 🙂
