The power of sacred Rituals

£149.00

 

When I speak of ritual, it is not in the religious sense. To me, ritual is about making the moment count; it is about being present in the task you are doing. These rituals are not pagan or wicca or related to any religion.

In essence a ritual is about bringing sacredness into your life, and about honoring something greater than you and me. It is about honoring the Mystery, and the Bringer of Life in all things, from the flowers, to the trees, to the birds, the tiny caterpillar glistening on a fresh leaf, or the waking sun, and the moonlight. There is a Divine force that moves through all things, like a river, enlivening all of life. It is the same force that moves the plant to flower, the wolf to howl, or lights up a baby’s face. As we become more aware of this higher force moving in our lives and express our gratitude for it, it expands and colors daily life with a radiance and light that connects us to all living things.

Having rituals in your life will enhance your experience greatly. Sometimes the benefit, the richness of experience, will be felt on a subtle level but that does not mean it is not worthy. It is such a beautiful gift to have your friends and family witness the care you take with any ritual that you share with them. Children will see the tenderness with which you create and perform a ritual and they will grow up with the memory, and continue it when they move out.

Rituals are meant not only to celebrate significant moments, but to ease us through difficult times by preserving stability and to establish bonds that transcend time. Rituals performed with family and friends bring us closer to one another and keep us grounded, but all personal ritual, no matter how outwardly mundane, is meaningful.

I am offering you ideas that will help you enrich your life, and therefore select what appeals to you and leave the rest. What you will find, however, is that bringing ritual into your life is simple and easy and only takes a moment. Yes, there are bigger rituals that can take a lot of time, but the idea is to choose what appeals to you and fits with your lifestyle.
