I have been receiving a lot of questions about my Wish Jars and how to set your intentions so I decided to do a quick blog post about what I am experiencing right now. This post will walk you through some of my processes and how I am able to capitalize on energy when it arises!
So, I’m sitting here having lunch and listening to the incomparable Mitchell Gibson, a magician, hypnotherapist, psychiatrist and PhD. If you are not familiar with his books and offerings, here is a link to the interview I am listening to right now: Psychic Ability with Mitchell Gibson!
While listening to Mr. Gibson tell a story about how a monk visited his mainly African American elementary school to teach the students how to meditate, I was struck by a rush of emotion. I realized what a gift it was for this monk to visit the school and how that one small act produced a prodigy such as Mitchell Gibson! I realized how important it is to follow my intuition and to give back to the community. There is no telling whose life I will impact and how my small actions will profoundly affect the life of another.
I felt tingles all over my body as I also realized how important it is for me personally and how important it was for me to take advantage of this moment right now! I knew I could not allow this moment to slip away from me and somehow I had to ground this idea into concrete reality, so, I decided to make a wish!
I will make a wish that in the near future, I will find myself giving back to my community in a profound way that will touch the lives of young students and inspire them to be all that they intend to be! Today I will perform a special ritual and put a wish in my wish jar that will ensure that I find myself realizing this vision and this dream I have to give back and impact the lives of young people!
I hope that my experience inspires you also! Perhaps by understanding how I take advantage of the moment and use simple rituals to support my intentions, you too, will be inspired to do the same! Here are a few steps that I take to make my intentions happen!
How to Set Intentions
- The first thing is to have an intention, a desire or a wish! My wish is to give back to my community in a profound way. I’m not sure how that will manifest, but it’s not important. What’s important is my desire and the way it makes me feel!
- The next thing is to write down my intention! I will get a small piece of paper such as a sticky note and write down my wish as if it has already occurred! Example: “I am engaged in giving back to my community in a way that impacts the lives of students and inspires them to realize their dreams!”
- The final thing is to gather energy around my intention and activate the law of attraction to ensure that it will manifest! To do this I will perform a basic moon magic ritual, earth magic ritual, candle magic ritual, or elemental magic ritual. Due to the fact that the moon is waning, it is not the best time to do a manifesting ritual with moon energy, so, even more exciting, I will do simple candle magic and then place my intention/wish in my wish jar!
- Finally, once I perform my candle magic ritual and place my wish in my wish jar, I will give thanks and show gratitude, knowing that my wish will come true! I will have a thankful heart, wait patiently in expectation for the fulfillment of my wish and even give a special offering to my Ancestors and Spirit Guides!
