What are the Intention slips?
Basically intention slip is just one of the tools to send your wishes to Universe and to make your dreams manifest faster with the Divine Blessings. You are not new to intention slips if you are a Reiki practitioner or a spiritual healer. It makes healing easier and faster and is amplified when we use Reiki symbols on it.
How to make intention slips?
Keep it as simple as possible. No need to be formal and go for fancy words or big-big affirmations. Write your wish on a paper in clear words or use any simple affirmation related to your wish. On the back side of the paper, draw Reiki symbols that you are attuned to. If you are not a Reiki practitioner or level one practitioner, continue without symbols. You can also use the symbols of any other healing modality.
Once your intention slip is ready, there are multiple ways to use it. Different ways to use intention slips
- Between palms
Draw Reiki symbols on your palms. Hold the intention slip between palms and give Reiki to it for 15-20 minutes with the intention to manifest it for your highest good. If you are not attuned to symbols, continue without symbols.
- Reiki box/ Reiki pouch
Create a Reiki Box or a Reiki pouch to put your wishes. You can add multiple intention slips. Draw symbols on palms and hold your box/ pouch between your palms and give Reiki to it with the intention to heal all wishes inside the box/pouch for highest good of everyone involved. You can add crystals too to your box/pouch. I personally use a Reiki Pouch as it soft and I can carry it anywhere in my purse without making my purse bulgy.
Take a medium-large size crystal that resonates with the wish you have written. Infuse your crystal with Reiki with the set intention. Put this crystal on top of your intention slip.
- Crystal Grid
Arrange your Crystal grid. A regular crystal grid needs one main stone such as pyramid, sphere or a cluster and also requires 6 pencils. Put your intention slips under the main stone of the grid and connect the grid as shown here. Give Reiki to your grid. You can also use multiple intention slips.
- New Moon/Full Moon
Unlike other methods, this you can do only on fortnights or of course on waning or waxing moon phases as per your wish. Make your intention slips based on the moon phase, if it is a new moon you can make wish to attract new things and if it is a full moon you can make a wish to let go and release the things that no longer serve you. Connect to moon energy and read aloud (or in mind) your wishes to moon energy. Leave it up to moon and Universe to fulfill it.
- Dear Angels/Universe/God
Write down all your wishes addressed to God, Universe or Angels. Connect the intention slip to these higher authorities with distant symbol and read it out. Burn the intention slip and forget about it.
- With Tarot
You can do this on New Moon or Full Moon. Pick a tarot card that resonates with your intention slip. Connect the card and wish to moon energy and leave it outside in balcony or at your altar. In the morning, burn the slip.
Place your intention slip at your altar and place a chi-ball over it daily with the intention to heal and charge the slip.
- Flash cards
Another beautiful method well explained here.
There are no restrictions with Reiki, there is no right or wrong when you make your slip. Remember, the more restrictions you make, the more restrictions are created for your wish to manifest.
