Reiki = Universal Life Force Energy
Intentions = what you consciously intend to accomplish or manifest into your life. What you plan to create with energy and attention.
All Universal action begins with your intention.
No, this isn't about New Years resolutions, but it could be. At or just before the New Year you may be drawn to placing some attention to what you hope the next year will bring to your life, as you reflect upon the events of the past year.
What if you used this time to direct your energies for the New Year?
This year, as we transition from 2022 to 2023 the planet Mercury will be Retrograde, and that offers a powerful opportunity to be clear and concise in intention setting. Drawing upon the energies of Reiki to support your mind, body and spirit in intention setting dynamically and lovingly draws your entire being into the process as it helps you to release, let go and plant the seeds of manifestation.
The energy created while Mercury is retrograde is a good opportunity to quietly reflect upon the past 12 months and what you've been giving your energy to.
Ask yourself what events lifted you up and made you feel good about yourself and your life?
Keeping your reflections balanced means also reflecting on which events pulled your energy down or created imbalance in your life. Which events drained your energy?
Reflection on the past brings clarity and wisdom to what is working, what isn't and what you want to change, or manifest in your life.
The next steps, in quiet reflection are to ask yourself what changes you want to make. What do you want to manifest into your life in the near future. Write these things down and be really clear and detailed.
Then read them over and see if you can bring your desires down to 3 or 4 sentences that clearly define what you intend to manifest.
Is it your intention to align your actions and attention to what you want to manifest? If your actions are not in alignment it detracts from the energy of what you want to create so it is important to be realistic as to whether you're really willing to change to draw the necessary energies for your dreams and desires.
"You are what your deepest desire is. As you desire so is your intention. As your intention is, so is your will. As your will is, so is your deed. As your deed is, so is your destiny" ~Upanishads
This step is where Reiki can be of great help. With loving and healing energies Reiki can assist you in drawing up those energies which no longer serve you, letting go of those energies you no longer need and making room for new energies to be a part of your being ~ mind, body and soul.
Planting the seeds of your intention during a Reiki treatment increases the energetic action to manifest your desires. If you plan to have a Reiki session as a part of your intention setting be sure to let the practitioner know of your intentions before the session. It brings more power and focus to it's fulfillment.
It's important to remember that the Universe works in it's own way to bring about change. Often that change may come in a way that you wouldn't have thought of or manifest in a way that is more aligned with your highest self, so be sure to release the outcome, let go and allow opportunities to be presented to you.
Another important thing to remember in creating intentions and drawing the energies to their manifestations is that these intentions are for you, and not for others. You have your journey and others have theirs. If you try to control the path of another the results can be disastrous. Set the intentions to manifest for your highest good and if another's energy is also aligned with that they will be drawn towards it.
