In the moment I choose to engage ritual, I can feel something happen. The air around me changes. At the moment I light the candle, or invoke the blessing, or run the grounding cords deep into the energy of Mother Earth.. I feel the shift.
Most importantly I become somebody else.
It’s a kind of shape-shifting. I don’t know how it works. Maybe it’s the light entering~an infusion of Divine energy. Maybe it’s my soul coming back into my body. Or a sort of signal gets sent out and calls in support from another dimension. I don’t know. I don’t need to know.
The shift feels beautiful and welcome…away from my daily identity and whatever the preoccupations or worries are that create psychic weight.
In this moment all of the lower forces that anchor me into negative emotions dissipate. I am raised to a higher mind. The energy of one of the sacred feminine archetypes finds me.
The Empress and the High Priestess, the Wise Woman, the Mystic or the Goddess…I find my connection to these archetypal energies the moment I step into the space of ritual.
This is where your Divine Identity shows up.
Feeling an infusion of love and power and feminine divine flowing into my cells and consciousness is a really good reason to bring ritual into my day.
When I was a single mother of two tiny boys (1 and 3) I began to practice small rituals during the early morning before they awoke. Something in me knew to create a connection to something powerful, beautiful, something that could change how I felt instantly. It was a way of setting the energy before the demands of single-parenting took over.
Choosing to step out of daily consciousness (or unconsciousness) and coming into present time (the other huge benefit) can truly change how you feel and how you see. How you experience yourself and how you experience your world.
I want that for you.
With so much love….
I have a something new for you, all about rituals~ You Are The Temple: The Beauty of Ritual, a self-guided digital retreat program.
Bri Saussy said this … “You Are The Temple encourages, supports, and teaches you to design your own one of a kind temple space, teaching you to create and explore the sacred not just at specific times or seasons, but whenever and however you have need. Beautiful work from a beautiful soul!”
And..I’d love to design a program of rituals specifically for you plus invite you to an online Temple retreat in January- both gifts are only for those who purchase before the end of 2014. Nourish your soul here.
Or if you’re ready to Meet Your Medicine~ to know the genius, the allness, the unprecedented unique gifts that you bring to this life, that change everything about how you work, love, and carry your self in the world…let’s go!
