All of life is sacred every star in the sky and every grain of sand. Every breathe we take. A ritual is a devout observation within the medium of your customs to show your appreciation for the relationship between the Self and Mother Consciousness. During a ritual your awareness is placed keenly on the sacred to assist you in acquiring the wisdom that we are One with all and all is one with us. During a ritual you can repeat or listen to affirmations that foster the energy of the maternal mother forces that bring peace, wholesomeness, protection, self-respect, and awareness of goodness. An example of an ancient affirmation that you can say during your ritual and y this all day long after is:
Within each of us, we are One
Altogether we are One
Without each other, we are One
Why the focus on Oneness? I’m not a oneness preacher but we are all in this together to feel better. We all just want to feel ok. We feel our best and are able to be our best when we are in positive and affirming relationships not just with spirit in human form but also with all spirit within the animal kingdom, plant kingdom, and rock, mineral, and crystal kingdom. During rituals we can include the elements of fire, earth, water, air, and space. Rituals keep your psychology intact so that you can live with clarity of mind and have smooth movement. We all would like for who we are and what we do to be congruent moving us onward and upward towards our purpose and goals, along with a healthy mind, body, and soul. We would like to get along and show love and receive love from our loved ones. Rituals are ceremonious prayers that lift up and exalt the energies that assist us in our health. Without ritual in our lives we can get entangled with destructive thought patterns that lead to a downward spiral of malefic actions that work against ourselves and those around us.
Still not sure what a ritual could be? We all enjoy thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is a time of year that we ceremoniously give thanks to God, our family, and for the abundance of food we have. We light candles, say prayers, and lift up the spirit of gratitude and abundance. There is even a sacrifice made in the form of a turkey. We gather around in a circle around the sacrifice and we say our affirmations of thanksgiving. And for one night we feel great about the energy we were able to put out into the universe and that we are able to receive.
