Connecting to Your Source and Manifesting Intentions
Sometimes we all need a spark to jumpstart our energy and creative power to allow the universe to once again work its magic. Connecting to our spirituality and creating new paths is an important part of taking care of ourselves physically and mentally. When we allow for time to purposefully sync up our meditations with mindfulness, we offer ourselves the extraordinary opportunity to call abundance into our lives.
Meditation has nearly infinite benefits both for our physical form and our emotional well-being. Meditation decreases stress and worry while it recharges our batteries. It allows for a higher consciousness that opens our minds, allows us to detach from negative energy and thoughts and makes us kinder and more empathetic. Our mission at Vosges is peace, love and chocolate, and meditation contributes to peace and love in abundance (we’ll be happy to supply the chocolate.)
Here are some of the practices and prompts we use for how to connect with your higher self.
When you meditate, whether with it’s a guided meditation or on your own, you are bringing your thoughts and feelings together, creating a harmonious balance between the two. You are tapping into your inner wisdom and intuition and quieting the mind so that all your channels of thought are open.
Before you begin to meditate, create a spiritual realm for yourself. This can include pillows, fabric, crystals, flowers, music, a journal, writing implements and candles; really anything that brings you joy, calm and allows energy healing to impart itself on the objects and area you choose.
Prepare your gift of chocolate for YOU. Our chocolates will contribute to your meditation rituals as they are crystallized in a healing sound frequency tunnel, of 528Hz to infuse loving and healing energy into them.
The frequency of the food that you eat can greatly impact your energy levels, if you’re interested in learning about the benefits of high frequency foods, we share everything you need to know.
Watch your breath.
As you begin your meditation, become aware of your own breath, taking deep cleansing breaths. Feel your body from head to toe and scan how each area of your body feels in the present moment. As you inhale, take in your dreams and desires. As you exhale, allow yourself to let go of all of the negative energy that takes away from them.
Watch your thoughts.
As you meditate, allow all of your thoughts to be gazed upon. Don’t judge or label any of them. Don’t resist them. Allow them to flow over you and raise your vibrations rather than shrink them. All thoughts are okay. Don’t try to control them or achieve anything with them as you meditate. Consider them data rather than attaching feelings or meaning to them. If you find that you are being bombarded with thoughts, get up. Walk around your space for thirty seconds and then sit in a new direction. This allows the mind to reboot, the body to be more at ease and for you to go deeper into the space where your source lies.
Be gentle with yourself.
Allow the energy you are drawing to yourself and your spirit serve you. If it doesn’t, allow yourself to let go of it without blame, ego or judgment. This is a way to be the gatekeeper and give yourself inner guidance to banish fear, doubt and negativity from your body and mind.
Clearing your mind through meditation creates the foundation for manifesting intentions for yourself in the most powerful way in the present moment. It prepares you for moments of divine inspiration, prosperity and abundance that will lead your future self filled with these gifts.
Affirm what you want.
Take your journal or a special piece of paper and write a list of things you wish to manifest for yourself through this spiritual journey. Write the manifestation as if it is happening in the present. You may also wish to write about manifestations coming to fruition at a certain moment in the future. Goals, wishes, dreams and desires all deserve space on this list. Big and small manifestations all fit.
How do you want to feel?
Focus on how you want your future self to feel as your manifestations become reality. How will your body feel when your dreams come into being. How will your mind feel when you feel filled up with the power and energy of your abilities to manifest your goals. What will seeing, hearing, smelling and tasting results feel like? How will they each contribute to your true nature. Write these points of data down, too.
Let your manifestations go.
Once you have stated your intentions and attached feelings to their outcomes, it is time to let them go. Your manifestations require incubation in the ether. While it may seem difficult at first not to babysit and control your manifestations, allow yourself the belief and grace to let the universe do this work for you.
Reflect on your manifestations.
Revisit your list from time to time to see the progress you have made by placing priority on your time to manifest your intentions. You might also try taking your list, sealing it in an envelope, addressing it to yourself and asking someone to send it to you when you feel it will most resonate with you to be reunited with it.
Celebrate your wins.
Manifestations coming to fruition are no small feat. They can be moment changing or life changing. It is important to take time to show gratitude and recognition for your wins. Write your wins down, too. This space in your journal is a place to come back to and savor.
We have created many collections at Vosges that will assist you with your meditation and manifestation intention setting.
Our Chocolate Meditation experience is a collection of exotic truffles specifically chosen for their alchemical properties. Each truffle is paired with a corresponding crystal and a deck of affirmation cards. This collection is an indulgent way to tap into your intuition. Whether you are searching the spiritual realm or practical day-to-day matters, this deck can assist. As you close your eyes and shuffle the deck, tap into your intuition, thinking carefully about the area in your life in which you'd like more clarity. Meditate using this collection daily for 40 days to encourage your manifestation! This is a meaningful experience to practice alone or with a group of friends.
At the heart of our super cacao elixirs is the mighty cacao bean. Designed as an alternative to your daily coffee ritual, they are a portal to deliver the cacao beans’ health benefits to your mind, body and soul in its purest form. The colorful elixirs leverage the healthy fats from cocoa butter, unrefined coconut nectar and various adaptogens, spices and flowers. They feature naturally occurring theobromine, which boosts energy and mood without the crash of caffeine. Offered in a variety of parfums: Reishi Mushroom and Walnut, Ceremonial Cacao, Ceremonial Matcha or Golden Milk. These elixir drinks make a wonderful accompaniment to meditation.
Rituals are the bridge to connect mind, body and spirit, creating deeper meaning and alignment with Source Energy. When we radiate with this trinity, through eating chocolate in purpose and intention, the everyday becomes extraordinary. This collection is designed to give the gift of peace to oneself or others through the medium of chocolate. Strong rituals created in a sacred space, belief in your intention and eating chocolate with focused energy can heal through the activation of mind, body and spirit. And we begin to manifest a life filled with peace. This collection comes in a gift box to gift yourself or others and includes our Vegan Truffle collection, Healing Waters bath salts, a Linnea’s Lights votive candle, Palo Santo Gift Bundle, a feather and a guided ritual card.
This bath soak is made from deep healing medical grade Epsom salt, CBD, organic French lavender for deep relaxation, clary sage to calm the mind and reduce feelings of anxiety and the scent of the forest through juniper berries. We pay homage to Ahurani, a water goddess from ancient Persian mythology who watches over rainfall as well as standing water and here she is invoked for health and healing, prosperity and growth.
Show yourself some indulgent love. This collection is for peering into yourself or as a special gift for someone who could use a little self love of their own. It can be used as a lens for seeing clearly within yourself and in doing so, truly seeing yourself. This limited edition collection includes two of our most prized comfort foods: Caramel Marshmallows and Peanut Butter Bonbons.
We hope the thoughts shared and the collections we’ve created will assist you in bringing unlimited abundance into your life. Your divine self is worthy of all that you manifest. Be it wisdom, spiritual growth, or prosperity, your goals, desires and dreams all deserve the Universe’s attention and aid. With our wishes for the vibrational energy that you put in be mirrored back to you ten-fold and your spirit guiding you towards the higher realms, we also ask the Universe to grant you peace, love and chocolate.
