There is fascinating research that our very DNA can be influenced and reprogrammed by the frequency of words. Interestingly, our genetic code follows the same structure as human language. This research claims to directly or indirectly explain phenomena such as clairvoyance, intuition, spontaneous and remote healing, affirmations and much more.
“Esoteric and spiritual teachers have known for ages that our body is programmable by language, words and thought. This has now been scientifically proven and explained. Of course the frequency has to be correct. And this is why not everybody is equally successful or can do it with the same strength.” (By Grazyna Fosar and Franz Bludorf reprinted at: www.soulsofdistortion.nl)
When teaching any of my energy healing or intuitive development seminars, I emphasize the importance of working with the mind in the form of language and intentions to support making and sustaining a more lasting shift.
However I didn’t always have great results. For years I read every prosperity and affirmation book available. I would try things for awhile but felt awkward, and they often didn’t seem to work. Over the years I have learned some refinements that have made all the difference. Today, my clients and I have great success using intentions.
So I thought I would share the following tips to pump up your intentions:
State things in the positive.
Many years ago most of my resolutions were centered on what I wasn’t going to do any more or didn’t want in my life; in other words — negative. We all know how well that works.
Even with animals it is much more helpful when we focus on what it is we do want. I often use the example of telling a dog to stop chasing cars. What is the dominant theme and image here? Chasing cars. The “stop” gets lost.
We are often sending the opposite message and wonder why things aren’t working. If you state that you want the dog to sit calmly on the curb, then you are sending the action and image you do want and are much more likely to get the desired results.
State things in the Present
Often I hear people say “I want to be ……” It is much more powerful to create from the present moment. “I am” or “I have” or “I intend that I am” work in the NOW moment; not in some future time that never arrives.
Add pictures and images
This is where the fun begins. Many people do vision boards where they cut out pictures of the things they want in their life, and refer to it daily to help bring things into the physical realm. When you add a picture of what it is you desire to create, it really pumps up the manifesting process.
Animals often are helped when we add pictures to what we are trying to communicate. This happens naturally as our language has mutually-agreed meaning, so I generally don’t need to think pictures when I speak to any animal. However if I am dealing with an abstract topic, like the time I am returning, I will consciously add pictures to it (e.g. three sunsets or three dinners to signify three days).
The same is true when we are trying to manifest a situation we have never experienced before…like being a millionaire. This is where adding detailed pictures of what it would mean to us to be wealthy: where would we live, what type of housing, our daily routine, etc. will really enhance your manifesting. We all have different ideas of what would make us happy so it helps to be as clear as possible.
Add the feeling of the desired outcome
Thoughts are electric and emotions are magnetic. Just using the thought process is only half the manifesting process. You must keep the thought long enough for you to step into the idea or concept fully, with all your senses. The feeling of freedom and joy that will come from having that new house or more money is what really becomes the magnet for the new experience.
Call in the frequency or vibration or resonance of the intention—if you intend to be happy, take a few moments to totally feel it in your body. If you can’t get there directly, use a memory of being happy just long enough until you can remember the feeling, and bring the feeling forward into the present. Eventually you will carve out a new neuro-pathway in your brain that allows you to connect with the “happy” feeling more easily.
Take Aligned Action
“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you’ve imagined.”
–Henry David Thoreau
Once you have stated your intentions clearly and positively with great enthusiasm, you then need to take aligned action and move forward in the direction of your dreams. Years ago, when I was just starting out and had very few Reiki clients, though I knew it was my path, the reality of having a practice that supported me financially was quite dim. This is the place most people quit their dreams.
So I decided I must spend time every day staying in the Reiki energy in some form in order to take aligned action. Whether I was giving myself Reiki, or taking care of a loved one in need of healing, or putting up flyers, or getting a booth at a health fair, I would dedicate time each and every day to being proactive and doing what I now would call “building it and they will come.”
What steps can you take right now, today, to get a new client, create a workshop, offer your services to someone in exchange for referrals, take time for self-care and reflection to restore and reenergize yourself and move confidently toward your dreams?
