Incense for Manifestation
The practice of manifestation often takes the form of meditation, mantras, and visualisations. Its power lies in the hidden abilities of the mind to create outcomes within the physical universe. This is also known as the law of attraction.
Incense is a powerful and readily available tool for boosting your manifestations. Our sense of smell is perhaps the most potent of all the senses. A particular aroma can trigger distant memories as if they occurred yesterday, and return us to particular states of mind. Logically, by using the same incense each time for a particular manifestation, you create a psychic link between a that aroma and the thoughts you cultivate in your manifestation practice. For example, if you are trying to manifest better finances, and you burn patchouli each time you practice this manifestation, you will create a subconscious trigger that puts you in the mindset of achieving greater wealth each time you catch the scent of patchouli.
As the manifester, you must experiment to find out which aromas work best for you and your goals. You can also lean on tradition. Over thousands of years, cultures around the world have ascertained certain uses for certain fragrances. By combining this knowledge with your own experimentation, you can find the fragrances that are best suited to your desires and goals.
As well as a wide variety of scents, incense comes in several shapes and forms. The most common is the stick, which consists of a wooden stick coated in resin. Spiral incense is similar, but is coiled and burns longer. Cone incense gradually emits a stronger aroma as it burns down. These different forms can be worked into your manifestation. For instance, cone incense can work well for manifesting long-term goals, whereas sticks go well with with more immediate desires.
When you have your incense and are ready to begin, take a moment to clear your mind before lighting it. Once lit, take a few moments to breathe the fragrance and focus on its subtleties. Then begin your manifestation practice.
When manifesting, it is possible to ask of the universe anything which you may desire. For some this might be a better paid job or a bigger house.
Others might wish to find their soul mate or improve an existing relationship. You may be seeking to boost your spiritual growth or cleanse your body and mind of negative energy. All of these are valid uses of manifestation. It takes practice and patience, but incense taps the mysterious power of aromas to support your desires and enhance the process.
Finally, don't make it a one-off thing! Repeat this practice often to reinforce and strengthen your desires. If possible, burn incense every day to keep specific goals at the forefront of your conscious and subconscious. Then trust in the universe to deliver!
