So what is the New Year's Reishi Resolution?
It's a resolution made with conscious intent and focus, guided over time by that most revered Shen tonic: Reishi.
It's quite simple and very effective.
Just follow these three steps.
Step 1 - Decide
Think of dreams and lifelong goals you've set for yourself, as well as a couple short term changes or goals you want to make immediately in your life that help you build positive new routines or habits that serve your greater vision.
Think of these smaller accomplishments as stepping stones towards your greater goals!
For example, if your goal was to simply "be healthier" try to break it down into smaller, more attainable feats.
Maybe it's starting that exercise program, practising meditation regularly, or adding more healthy foods to your diet.
Pick what makes your heart happiest!
Step 2 - Intent
Set aside some time at the start of each day, before everyday life begins to consume your attention.
Take as much time as you feel is right, and can reasonably manage.
When that time arrives, focus only on visualizing yourself after reaching your goal while taking the three capsules of Reishi.
Imagine the Reishi entering your body, carrying your intentions and goals to every cell, and directing your actions and thoughts for the day to achieve them.
Tip: Keep some paper and a pen with your Reishi, and add details each day to your visualization.
The more detail, the better. Why do you want what you want?
Maybe you want to travel the world, but why? What will you learn or experience? How will it make you feel? How does it help you accomplish what you want in life?
If you can think consciously with intent like this every day for 90 days taking Reishi, that is one of the most powerful things you can do to manifest your goals and dreams.
Step 3 - Manifest
When focusing our mental energy on something, we’re able to give more of our brain power to it.
It’s not magic or hocus-pocus, it’s our own innate tool (the mind) being placed into the right position to perform at its maximum efficiency with the help of Reishi.
Although I say 90 days focusing with intent for New Year's, Reishi should be something in everybody's daily herbal regimen.
Continue living your life to the fullest, enjoying every moment you can, and working to reduce the moments you don't.
Reishi mushroom (also known as Ganoderma) is considered perhaps the greatest single herb in the Chinese pharmacopeia.
Often referred to as the “mushroom of immortality” or the “herb of good fortune,” this Ye Sheng (wild crafted) extract, when consumed on a regular and long term basis will, according to Shen Nong, “lighten the body and prevent aging, extend one's life, and make one an immortal."
It is an adaptogenic and longevity herb that helps to: support and regulate immune function, protect the cardio vascular system, and support and protect the liver.
But perhaps its greatest function is that of a Shen tonic. It is unrivaled in its ability to open the Heart, calm the Spirit, and connect you to your higher self. It enhances wisdom and supports spiritual evolution and insight.
