A Ritual for Intentional Goal Setting for 2018
Rituals are an amazing way to connect your mind, body and spirit with your intentions. It give you a holistic way to open up your being to accept what you want for your life. They can be powerfully symbolic and open the floodgates to a deeper connection to the Universe within. The key essence of trying any ritual is to show up with an open heart, an open mind and a willingness to be open to all possibilities.
1. CREATE A SACRED INTENTION SETTING SPACE
Whether it’s an altar, a desk, your kitchen table or a pretty space on your nightstand, create a space of peace and beauty where you can keep candles, journals, bible, crystals, and other symbolic items that help you create a feeling of inspiration.
2. CLEAR YOUR SPACE BEFORE THE RITUAL
Our homes can sometimes become energetically cluttered by negative thoughts and people. The best thing to do is clear your space by either burning sage to clear your space, and then burning palo santo to bring positive energy back in. I like to open up my windows and ask for the bad energy to leave:
“I am asking all negative energies to leave this space as I surround myself with white light and positivity”
3. MEDITATE FOR AT LEAST 5 MINUTES
The practice of meditation is really important throughout the manifesting process. This is because you actively relax and allow for your desires to flow from your higher self. Set the intention before your meditation to be guided to soulfully and succinctly express all of the things you would love to manifest into your life. If you are new to meditating, I suggest finding guided meditations on Youtube to help you get focused.
5. FLOW FROM YOUR HEART WITHOUT JUDGMENT
In collaboration with Ebony over at Coily Sue, I have written a post about setting goals for the year that will actually stick. You can find it over at her website! Allow yourself to dream really BIG! Get carried away in very descriptive detail how you would like the life of your wildest dreams to look. God is in the details remember, so you want to get super-clear about every little thing you want to start showing up in your reality.
If you notice the little voice of doubt or certain judgments begin to rise up as you are setting your intentions, remember that they are a very natural part of the manifesting process. You need to understand that you can’t control how you feel when the doubt rises up, but you can choose to reframe it in order to see it as a vital balancing force for the process to be successful. It’s ALL about perspective. Really dive into the core feelings of WHY you want to transform your life and what it would mean to the people and loved ones around you.
Finally, make copies of your goals and put them in major traffic areas such as the bathroom, your bedside table, on the refrigerator, and your steering wheel. Keep them visible, so they are always on the forefront of your mind.
