Changing your life begins with changing the energetic story you are projecting into the world.
Action must precede intention. And intention is the seed of creation. When we look at our lives like puppets on the strings of fate we lose vital power.
You are meant to live a life of expansive power, brilliant splendor and creative output. Sometimes we get a little lost in the storm of life and forget how powerful we really are!
You are always engaging in this process with your thoughts, your feelings, and whatever you choose to put energy into. But when you learn that you can direct this energy, you find big magic is everywhere just waiting to work for you! Rather than getting caught in the undertow of life you learn to move with your personal flow.
You truly can attract or repel the things that you want and need in your life.
I truly believe you are destined to thrive in life, rather than endure whatever is thrown at you. All you have to do is make the radical commitment to change your life, to take ownership of your power and go for whatever your wild heart desires!
To help you harness the power of your inner magic I’ve decided to share simple ceremonies you can incorporate into your daily life and practice. These ceremonies allow you to work with the energetic medicine of botanicals, minerals and the power of the elements as energetic tools for change.
But First, What Are Spiritual Rituals and Ceremonies?
Spiritual Ceremonies and Rituals are a way to celebrate and bring about personal transformation, in an intentional way. These ceremonies can take many different forms and can act as a healing process for those who perform them.
You might like to think of these rituals like magick spells – essentially sacred ceremonies involve a number of ceremonial items and ask you to complete a number of steps in order to raise and release the magic of the ritual.
Indigenous cultures have performed rituals for millennia and some of the most powerful rituals have their roots in ancient cultures. Most modern-day ceremonies take their inspiration from old iterations. Bringing sacred ceremony into your life allows you to honor an intrinsic part of you that has been passed on through time, space and tradition.
Sacred ceremonies offer a potent time for you to reflect, to ask your soul what it most wants, to let go of things that no longer serve you and to move forward with your life on the truest path for your current incantation. They celebrate a connection to Spirit, give us a chance to give thanks for the wonders around us in nature and bring us into alignment with the universe.
What Do Sacred Ceremonies Look Like?
Sacred ceremonies can often more mainstream than you might think – they’re not all magic spells under the moonlight (although they can be)! Possibly one of the most recognizable is a day that many of us prepare for many years in advance – your wedding day! Think about it, this celebrated day follows the major criteria for any sacred ceremony: letting go of the old and transitioning into the new with intention!
And there are many other sacred ceremonies whose origins are founded in religion too.
But regardless of your religious beliefs, there are a number of ceremonies that you can perform from the comfort of your own home including:
- Meditation and prayer.
- Fire and candle ceremonies
- Crystal healing
- Cleansing baths and rituals
Who Can Perform These Ceremonies & When Should You Use Them
The beauty of sacred rituals and ceremonies is that anyone can perform them, at any time! You don’t have to have special skills or magical powers, you simply need the intention to make changes in your life.
Although you can perform a ritual at any time, there are specific times where you may really want to harness the power of the universe around you or set intentions and manifest for what’s happening in your life right now.
Here’s some examples of the kinds of times you should think about performing a sacred ritual:
- With the moon’s cycle, especially during the full and new moon
- During a particularly testing time
- Before a celebration of life, birth or new beginnings
- When you want to connect with your higher self
- When you want to manifest more abundance, prosperity or happiness
Why Are Ritual & Ceremony So Important?
Ceremony is a powerful form of energy work because it aligns your inner desires with the outer world. You’re literally moving into a state of mind, body, and heart and spirit agreement by taking action that supports your intention.
You have the ability to bring more magic and meaning into your life. You have the tools at your disposal to create abundance, prosperity, and light. You hold the power in your hands to look after your own well-being and step into the spiritual light you were born to walk in. So, with it all so close to your grasp…why would you leave it to chance and hope all of these things will come your way naturally?
You owe it to yourself, your soul, the universe to ask for all that you desire and take adequate steps to open yourself up to receive the blessings that you deserve.
Remember this: clear intention + deliberate action = radical positive change.
