Learn How To Manifest Your Intentions With Yoga Nidra
This is a full 30 minute guided Yoga Nidra meditation combined with Trypnaural brainwave entrainment (alpha/theta/delta) for manifesting your intentions.
If you are aware of the law of attraction, this ancient meditation technique is an ultra powerful method for harnessing its power.
What is Yoga Nidra?
The practice of Yoga Nidra, an ancient meditation technique from India, allows your mind to flow into a deep hypnotic state of deep alpha, theta and delta brainwaves.
It is also referred to as ‘Yogi Sleep’ – a state of lucid sleeping, when you are asleep yet your mind is still present.
In this state of deep meditation you can plant your intentions that program your unconscious mind.
Located in your brainstem at the core of your unconscious mind, is your reticular activating system and mastery over its function gives you more control over your own life, being able to attract more of the things you want and even invoke your own internal power for self healing.
This focuses the awareness of your reticular activating system (RAS) on the intention that you set.
For example if you set your intention to recover from chronic illness, your mind will focus more on creating behaviours that are beneficial to boosting your immune system.
What Are Intentions?
If you imagine your life is like a constantly flowing river of events and circumstances, the power of your intention influences the probability of an event or circumstance occuring at a certain point in time.
The more you believe something to be true, the greater your reticular activating system will play out your life to make it true.
An intention can be something material such as wanting your dream car or vacation, or it can be something more physiological such as healing from chronic illness or wanting to reach your perfect weight.
It can also be more spiritually aligned by focusing on something you want to attract that could help the greater good.
The more focused you are on exactly what you want, the greater the power of your intention becomes.
How to set your intentions
You have to be very careful when selecting your intentions and using them during Yoga Nidra as the process is very powerful and sometimes we can manifest things that we do not really want and are not truly beneficial to us.
Here are some guidelines to follow to make sure you have the greatest chance of success with manifesting your intentions during the practice of Yoga Nidra.
1. Be affirmative and said with conviction – Manifesting successfully is dependent on how strongly you believe with pure conviction that what you are trying to create has already happened. Your unconscious mind cannot distinguish between positive and negative, so if you want to reach your perfect weight, you would say ‘I am at my perfect weight and body shape’ rather than ‘I don’t want to be fat’ otherwise your unconscious mind will act on the word fat, ignoring the don’t and manifest that result instead.
2. They must be in the present tense – as you manifest only what you truly believe has already occurred, all intensions should be in the present tense. For example if you want want attract more money, you would say ‘I am wealthy’ or you can be even more specific and say ‘I have $100k in my bank account”
Other points to consider are:
4. They must be in the first person
5. They must involved a specific action
6. Repetition is essential, so the more times you repeat an affirmation the better. It should become a daily practice.
7. Positive intentions do not magically manifest results, what they do instead is open your subconscious mind to new channels of information and opportunity, so you must take action on these in order for any major changes to happen to your life.
Here are some examples of good and bad positive intentions to use.
I am a creative thinker – good I want to be a creative thinker – bad
I am beautiful – good I don’t want to be fat – bad
So remember to pick the right statements for your intentions, then make it a daily habit to clear the clutter and reprogram your subconscious/unconscious mind.
