Dave and l love creating sacred space together, behind close doors and in the Intuitive Goddess Academy and I do it even on my own.
I create sacred space by smudging the space either with sage or Palo cento, it depends on what I’m intuitively drawn to at that present moment. I prepare an altar, get my self ready and open circle. I open Circle by casting a circle, calling in the elements and Goddess and God and any deities if needing too.
There is a deep feeling of magic when creating a circle. I feel deeply connected with in and to the universe. There is excitement with in however its with groundness
I love how over the years creating sacred space through ritual has allowed me more and more to step into my power and own my power. I’ve seen and felt how it allows me to be consciously aware of how l create my life. We are all creators of our life. Whether we know it or not. When we create subconsciously life doesn’t seem to go the way we really want too. When we consciously create our life doors open up, after we close doors to what no longer serves us. And even at times creating consciously doesn’t go to plan we know the universe has a divine plan and we can tweak what we do and keep taking baby action steps to making it happen.
You always have a choice in your life. You can choose to continue to live and create subconsciously or become consciously aware and create a life you want, deserve and feel bloody amazing. Remember life isn’t meant to be where you feel like crap all the time, unless you like it and if you do then this blog isn’t for you. However if you want to start feeling grounded and amazing then your in the right place. I am here to tell you no mater what has happened to you in your past, all the past hurts, pains and traumas you can move to a place of having a amazing life and feeling happy and unconditional love. Love is your true vibrational nature as a spirit being. After all you are a spiritual being having a human experience.
Fear is an illusion. What the heck does this mean?
It means that fear (as a low vibration) is not your true nature. It is something created as humans. You get caught up in it, believing it’s real cause it does feel real but it isn’t real to your true nature of love.
What creating sacred space in ritual can do for you:
1. Connect with your higher self
While you are in sacred space through ritual you step out of the mundane world and into a space of high vibrational energy. You set the space of the vibration of love and only that of love can enter.
Your higher self is your spiritual true form. Where there is no fear, no hurts, no pains and no traumas. It is you. This aspect of you knows what’s in your highest good and is there to guide you in this human experience to learn what it is your needing at that time. It guides you to fulfil your sacred contract. The beautiful thing about your higher self is you can access her at anytime. At this point you may not be aware of her and through creating sacred space through ritual you can do this. Connecting with your higher self is there for all to connect with it. It isn’t exclusive to certain people. You can do this. I believe in you and feel deeply that you can do this. And no you can’t do it wrong.
If you could ask your higher self for guidance in your life at this present moment, what would you ask?
Today’s world is busy and at times crazy, right?
How does this leave you feeling?
Does it allow for you to sleep at night?
How is your body feeling? Relaxed? Calm? Grounded? Or tired, sore, stressed or anxious???
You have a choice on how you want to feel. No one can make you feel a certain way unless you allow it. If you feel triggered then there is some healing in side of you needed.
Feeling relaxed, calm and grounded is attainable through creating sacred space through ritual work.
Creating sacred space through ritual work is about self care and self love. You are worth this time. Look at it this way, you are a cup. You are a cup and when you get run down, tired and stressed your cup is empty. You try to push through but then the things you love leave you more tired and more stressed and resentful. This understandable, however it doesn’t have to be this way.
Take time out for you. Yes it does mean less time with your loved ones HOWEVER when you are with them and you have filled your cup up, you are over flowing and the quality with loved ones is at its peak. It’s about quality of time, not quantity of time.
Which would you prefer? Lots of time with a stressed out and anxious person or less time with a grounded and calm person who is fully in the present moment with you?
I know which l prefer!!!
4. Decrease anxiety, over active mind and quieten the gremlin mind
How are your thoughts?
Are they filled with loving and groundedness?
Or is the gremlin in over drive and having a party?
By gremlin mind l mean telling you you aren’t good enough, you can’t do that, your ugly, your too fat and you can’t do certain things, etc. Remember the 80s movie The Gremlins? In the movie the gremlins are trouble makers and have no intentions of doing things that are beneficial to anyone. And this is what the gremlin mind does. It does not have your best interest at heart.
Creating sacred space through ritual doesn’t kill the gremlin however it does quieten it down and gives you the opportunity to choose to either believe the gremlin or believe in your higher self.
I have found after ritual for the next few days I’m on a natural high. My to do list is just as long however I’m not stressed about it. Such a great feeling. No overwhelm of how am l going to get it all done, instead l feel calm, relaxed and grounded. I also feel connected with in and have a sense of knowing things will get done and can focus on what l can do in the present moment.
Being grounded is a fantastic feeling. Although something that is a daily practice. Things happen in life and knock us about.
When grounded you respond to life
When grounded you make decisions that work for you
When grounded you stay present in the moment, not stuck in the past or worried about the future
6. Clarity and direction
When the gremlin mind is quietened and your grounded you gain clarity and able to to make decisions that work for you and decisions are actually easier to make. You don’t have the gremlin telling you all the things you supposedly can’t do, remember your gremlin isn’t your friend and does not have your best interest at heart. Decisions made from the gremlin work against you. When you create scared space through ritual the gremlin is quietened
7. Improve relationships with all you connect with
Things that bothered you don’t bother you as much when you regularly create scared space through rituals.
When grounded decisions are made more with intuition and aligned to you and you are able to respond to what is happening rather then react. Reacting to someone else’s reaction is explosive. It adds more fuel to the fire. Nothing gets solved, things go even more down hill.
Creating sacred space for yourself in ritual will open up a whole new world for you. A world of grounding, inner peace and feeling of deep connection to yourself and the universe. When you feel connected to your higher self and the universe you are able to connect easily with others from a place of love, rather then fear.
Creating sacred space with other women is also magical. When being asked what is circling with women like, I still can’t find the exact words to describe it. It’s magical and that is the closet l can describe it and say you need to experience to see. When women have then done this and l ask them to describe it, they too can’t.
When l hold sacred space for women in circles it is a ritual. We have an opening and closing of circle, l smudge, we meditate and talk and listen to each other. This sacred space isn't about solving each other problems and telling each other what to do. This is something that is strongly not recommended. We aren't counsellors and there for not able to do this. What we do do is provide a sacred space for women to talk and be listened too. How do you feel when you are being listened too and not told what to do??
I have found this to be very affective in the healing process. Also too when given opportunity to speak openly, women come to their own answers. Other women can share their experiences but not give advice.
I started holding Women’s Circle in 2010 in my home and now for the last couple of years hold them on line. Doing on line has allowed women to come together in Australia and over seas and connect in the different sacred spaces. In the Intuitive Goddess Academy we have Women’s Circle, Red Lotus Circle (connecting with our womb space), Shaman Night and Rainbow Labyrinth Mystic Arts Circle, each month. It has been an honour connecting with women in these sacred spaces and watch them unfold each time every month. To find out more visit HERE
