Smell is your superpower for mindful intention
Most mindful practices aim to quiet the busy front part of the thinking brain and in doing so, connect with the older, more meditative back-brain. But what not many mindful practitioners are aware of is that all of our five senses pass through the front brain, except one – the sense of smell.
In fact, the sense of smell directly accesses the older, more meditative back brain – the part we try to connect with in meditation and mindfulness. This is why sacred smells have been used in all meditative traditions ever recorded. Smell has an instant effect on the mind and can bring us into a meditative and mindful state like no other sense.
Because the sense of smell’s unfiltered access to the subconscious mind it has an incredible impact on intention or “sankalpa”. It’s possible to anchor a certain fragrance with a certain attitude, emotion or behaviour. Combining intention and affirmation with smell ensures that the words carry a much higher vibration and support intention.
