Saxcerpt: 2018 Theme Words

My 2018 Mala. Each “marker” bead represents a different word with grounding onyx stones in between for repetition.

It’s that time of year where we are setting intentions and resolutions. Last year, I wanted to strengthen the energies surrounding this space. I extrapolated from my intentions and resolutions and chose “theme words” that encompassed them. Words like compassion and beauty emerged.  I created a Mala to remind me every day of my words and to help me choose the path that continued me on my journey. I felt this was a powerful practice and wanted to share that with you.

 

To provide some context, first and foremost, I love words. Words have power and when chosen intentionally, they communicate your authentic truth. And through cymatics, words have been shown to produce vibrations. If you have not heard of Dr. Masaru Emoto Hado’s work here is a documentary. Through the use of technology and phenomenal cameras, he has photographed water crystals that were infused with words. This suggests that even just thinking words creates vibrational patterns. Positive words were shown to produce beautiful, sacred geo patterns while their counterparts created dischordant patterns.

 

The average adult human is 60% water. You are producing vibrational patterns right now that are influencing the water molecules in your body. And if you are into the Law of Attraction, you are attracting similar patterns to you.  Choosing words that support your intentions/resolutions, and the consistent repetition of them aids in the integration of their patterns into your life.

 

So if you are inclined, consider qualities of energy you want to draw in during 2018. Why are your intentions/resolutions on the list? Maybe start with the phrase, “I want to be…” and fill in the blank. I want to be happy. I want to be healthy. I want to be compassionate. Repeat them to yourself as an “I am” statement. Write them down somewhere you will see them often (Download a template). If you have a meditation practice, sit with them. However it resonates with you, remind yourself of these words to support you on your dharmic journey through intentions and resolutions.
