How Sacred Rituals Can  Help To Achieve Your Goals

 

The word “ritual” has lost its true meaning. When we think of a ritual our minds are automatically guided to religious ceremonies. But rituals are integrated into our lives on a daily basis. Going to work is a ritual. Paying our taxes is a ritual. Cleaning the house is a ritual. And these rituals, whether done every day, once a week or even once a year plays a very significant role in either the success or failure of our goals and intentions, 

 

Why A Habitual Ritual?

Rituals are activities performed usually in a sequential manner involving symbolic objects, gestures, and words, These acts are carried out mainly for the sheer confirmation of our intentions. We go to work as a ritual because we have intentions to stay off the street and keep food on the table. We also go to work because we have dreams and goals. 

In the past, some rituals required some sacrifice. Thankfully, a lot of the requirements over the years have shifted into far less extreme sacrifices but all intentions or goals still to this day require some sacrifice when performing rituals. If you set a goal, a ritual will inevitably fall into place to see the goal through. Some rituals may require being away from home and family for long periods of time while others may require putting our dreams on hold to stay home with the kids. Whatever the ritual, it becomes a confirmation of our intentions, and making the ritual a sacred act will always be of great help in the manifestation of any goal.

Make It A Ritual – How Sacred Rituals Can Better Help To Achieve Your Goals

Have you noticed that it gets harder to make decisions toward the end of the day? You’re too tired to figure out what to have for dinner let alone what to watch on TV. That’s because we all have a finite amount of decisions that can be made in any given day. Knowing this will help us to prioritize.

Habits and routines are usually implemented to cut out a lot of much-needed decision making in our days. But over time, routines can become quite impersonal and a drudgery to perform, making our goals more difficult to adhere to. When we make a routine sacred, often the goal gets renewed and becomes personal once again. This helps especially when trying to accomplish long-term goals. Reacquainting yourself with the “why” of your goal by performing sacred rituals will help you to see your set goals well into the very end.

Chances are you already have a morning routine. You get up, prepare your coffee, tea, or grab that drink of water before getting out of bed. You check your emails and/or messages, fix a little breakfast, shower and eat all before heading off to work. You may not do it all or quite in that order but chances are you do have a routine. So, let’s expand on that. If you create a sacred ritual for your morning or evening, whichever time of day is relevant to you, your goal to go to work every day will likely become more achievable, Certainly, the goal to keep a roof over your head should be personally, motivating enough. Unfortunately for most, it is not.

Humans innately need to have and fulfill a purpose in every act, and when reason is neglected on a daily, despair becomes the norm. Going to work to keep yourself sheltered from the natural elements is not a real purpose in life, and on an intuitive level, I believe that we all know this. It may be worth taking into consideration that some who are homeless choose to be on a deeper level because their inner being finds living more purposeful from that point of experience. But that’s another conversation at another time.

The point trying to be made here is that experiencing life solely through laboring for our basic Mother Earth-given needs is not a reasonable, purpose, therefore, despair and lack of motivation become the two components that cause some to fall into, losing jobs, homes, families or even lives as a result.

Creating A Sacred Space

We are all born with our own inner, sacred space, and becoming reacquainted with that sacred space on a daily basis is very important. However, it is also just as important to create your very own sacred space inside of your home as well. This space will help you build and maintain a much-needed relationship with your inner-being. Building a strong connection with your inner-being will help to keep you grounded to what’s important in your life and help you let go of what is not. 

To create a sacred space, find an area in your home that is free of heavy traffic. Some traffic is fine but no traffic is better. You want to be very conscious of the kinds of energy your sacred space absorbs. After all, this space is where you will need to replenish your own energy level, and you want to always replenish your energy field with clean, positive energies.

When decorating your sacred space, only respond by the “right” feel the furniture and other objects give off. For instance, everything has its very own energy signature or frequency that gives off different vibes. So, decorate your sacred space and your entire home, if you can, with items that resonate with your own energy signature or at a frequency that you are trying to attain. 

 Practitioners believe that rooms, buildings and all environments can be arranged and decorated in a way that maximizes the flow of Qi and, resulting in improvements to health and happiness of those who live in that environment.

You want your sacred space to be the inspiration for what you wish to achieve or if you’re happy where you are, you want your sacred space to maintain your current level of focus.  Here are 5 easy and affordable feng shui tips for your sacred space   .

MAKING YOUR RITUALS SACRED

Having a sacred space and sacred ritual will again, invoke the “why” of your goals which will help increase the odds in your favor for accomplishing them. Giving yourself the gift of slowing down a bit before going to work can do wonders with changing a person’s perception of any situation. To strive to live beyond despair, we must first re-establish what our purpose or reason for being. Again, it is not to labor for basic survival but to attain a much higher level of experiences. When we have done so, going to work, taking care of family, paying bills, everyday life rituals won’t be just a plethora of empty gestures.

Set Out Each Day With Your Real Purpose In Mind!

In your sacred space, create a visual wall or vision board. This visual of your real purpose will keep your spirit free from the confinement of our world constructs. Make it a weekly ritual to accomplish at least one step toward making your real purpose a reality. Demote the idea of your need to work for housing, food, clothing, the basics from the status of “important fulfillments” to the status of “already taken care of”. Shifting your energy of focus to this degree will free you to see your life at a much wider angle as opposed to seeing it from an ant’s view. Before dashing off to work, sit in your sacred space for a few moments and energetically absorb your visual wall. When your spirit is free, life becomes more exciting and not just a conglomeration of meaningless acts. 

Have Your Breakfast And Candles, Too!

In your sacred space, light a candle. Never underestimate the powerful ritual of lighting a candle. According to Spiritual Arts Institute, candles are known to invoke different intentions depending on their color, design, and their added infused ingredients of oils, herbs, and/or gems. Choosing the right candle for the right intention can be just as important as choosing the right partner for marriage. Whatever your desired result, the tools used must always match your overall intentions.

 

 

Take Your Affirmations Every Where You Go!

In your sacred space, recite your favorite list of affirmations or have them in view. Affirmations are a great way to affirm what we wish to see happen in our lives and saying or seeing them on a daily basis makes it easy for our thoughts to begin vibrating at the desired frequency. Affirmations are influencers that guide our thoughts and emotions to experiencing what we ultimately wish to experience which is happiness. Saying positive words, over time, will guide our thoughts and feelings to reverberate at that same frequency. Our life will then begin to mirror who and what we are truly wishing to achieve as our real purpose.

 

So, once you’ve begun the journey to reestablish what your real purpose is, create your very own sacred space to reacquaint yourself with your inner-being as often as you are willing. Laboring for basic needs is not your real purpose for being. When you finally come to terms with this one fact, your energy of focus will become so much more powerful than ever before.  And your goals will begin to manifest at a faster rate.

Try these great products for your sacred space!

Learning to slow down to contemplate and for reflection is crucial to living your purpose, on purpose. Stilling the ego’s thoughts and feelings for at least 20 minutes out of every day to gain that trusted connection with your inner guidance system is really your only purpose. For with this accomplishment you will come to easily accomplish everything else.

Adrienne Daniels, Flower of Life Coach Adrienne Daniels, Flower of Life Coach
Hi, I’m Flower75! And it’s time I introduce myself. My biggest passions in life are learning and sharing. So, I do hope that you find what I’m sharing with you of great use and of great inspiration,. Thanks for slowing down a bit to read.

  How To Turn A Passion To A Profit

 

This is a very personal endeavor for me – turning a passion to a profit. Just a few years ago, I saw myself making a living tapping away at my laptop while sipping on a cup of my favorite coffee and on occasion, glancing out my window for some inspiration. At that time, my idea of what type of website business I wanted to operate was very broad. All that mattered was that I gave consultations because coaches offered consultations to make money. 

 

Of course my vision was limited because I didn’t know much about how the online business world worked.  I just simply operated from the old concept of how a typical consultant operated.  But as my business continued to grow I also continued to grow, and my focus of what I was really wanting for my business began to sharpen. I am still to this day evolving in my business concept. 

 

Focus is key to projecting my vision out into the world. I alone know what I want my life to become. But when I stop paying attention to the subtle winks and nudges the Universe is willing to give me along the way, creating my world then becomes a lot more difficult and a lot less fun. 

 

Usually when I find I’m not paying attention it is because I’ve gotten too distracted by the world around me. Aaah, the world! Everyone’s nemesis! How to be in it but not of it, is life’s riddle. It doesn’t take much to pull anyone out of their world of infinite possibilities into this current projected world of “negative Neds and Nellies”. Having a full-proof method of escape back to your focus is vital.

 

Maintaining Focus, Eliminating Fear

 

The energy of fear has caused so many of us to remain in unwanted relationships, situations, and even jobs for years before finally making the much needed move toward change. Unfortunately, some of us never do make a  change but continue to complain as if complaining is going to actually make the change. 

 

While fear is a huge reason many do not realize their passions, the inability to focus is also another factor why so  many stay in unwanted circumstances.

 

Working for someone else is never a bad thing. What’s bad is working for someone else for the rest of your life and having an idea, but too afraid to implement it. Remember, it’s much easier to tolerate doing something you hate if what you hate is used solely as a stepping stone to accomplishing a certain goal in life. We all need each other to create the life we want. No one can do it alone. 

 

If you have a passion but not quite sure how to make a profit with it, here are several examples of skills/hobbies along with a variety of platforms that can hopefully help anyone looking to make a profit get started in the right direction. 

 

Passion To Profit Tips And Tools

To begin, I’ll attempt to define what a passion is. A “passion” for me is a hobby or skill that I enjoy doing so much that when I’m engaged it can cause me to lose track of a great deal of time. I also enjoy this hobby or skill so much that I’m either thinking and/or talking about it often, or I’m at least trying to do this hobby or skill as often as I can. 

What Is Your Passion?

  • Write down your passion. This is a skill or hobby that you lose all track of time doing, and you think about it and/or try to do it as often as you can.
  • If you lose interest in your passion when you think of trying to make money from it. (Stop here.)

What Are You Seeking After? If you weren’t seeking for something more, you wouldn’t have landed on this page.

 

It doesn’t matter what you think you’re seeking after, what you’re really wanting is the opportunity to express who you ultimately are.

This, of course, is my theory.  And you can’t replace the experience of expressing who you ultimately are with material objects. Pay close attention to what I’ve actually said. It is the experience of expressing that cannot be replaced.  

 

When we make the object we wish to obtain our identity and our goal, we fail to understand why we are here.  Please do not misunderstand what I am attempting to convey here. The desiring of things is a must. We must want in order to place into action the Momentum of the Experience of Expression. But when we get hung up on the object (thing desired), we are stunting our soul’s growth in connection with the experience of (1) Source’s (or God’s) expression through us and (2) our expression of Source through us.

 Earth is a place designed for our practice to express God.  I will use Source and God interchangeably here in this blog to define the power of the  “All That Is”. It is here on Earth that we are to allow the energy or power of God to express Itself through us in order for it to know Itself. And in order for this Source power to know Itself, it must operate within the (illusory) constraints of contrast. For it is this contrast that helps put into action the Momentum of the Experience of Expression or MEE.

 

The state of our world is the contrast. This contrast has put in place a massive  desire for change . This desire or want has put into place the MEE. Now, we can jump on board with this momentum and allow full expression of Source to recreate this world anew. Or, we can ignore the momentum and live our lives without the soul’s growth as the focus.  And of course, everyone has the free will to choose whatever they feel. But thank the “All That Is” that it doesn’t take a large number of soul’s jumping on board to begin a shift into a much-needed direction.

What do you say we just stop pretending? When we just shake our heads after hearing about some horrendous, unfortunate act of victimization then go about our business as though all is fine, we’re pretending. Or, we’re just as crazy as the perpetrators! But honestly, I don’t think that the majority of us are crazy or even pretending. I think the majority of us are just simply overwhelmed. It’s just too damn much!

 

 

Of course, I get it. It’s easier to shake our heads then try to tuck the negative news away on a shelf along with the rest of the insane nonsense encountered on a daily.  But guess what? It’s still in our faces. All of it is still in our faces, and it’s going to continue to be in our faces until it has grown into something we are going to wish to the heavens we had put a stop to. Or, at least tried!

 

So, we become paralyzed and do nothing. We think that one person is just a drop in the ocean  and won’t be able to make much of an impact in the world. Besides, the world is too far gone anyway so why do anything at all?

 

What?!! So, we just ride it out?

 

Well, I won’t ride it out! I’m going to do all I can to be a part of the trailblazing, positive force needed to change this wacky world. And deep down you know you want to be a part of that trailblazing force, too. 

 

Weren’t you born with the same rights to experience love, wealth and happiness as everyone else on this planet? You are entitled! But entitlement doesn’t come to those who don’t believe they are. Stop believing what those “too big for their own britches to fail” government officials say when they try to make you feel bad about your natural entitlement rights. Hell yes, you’re entitled! Why wouldn’t you be? They feel entitled to do whatever they need to live lavish and large even when it’s off of your hard earned dollars, and without any apology. So, stop apologizing when you’re just trying to get the basics for survival, and trying to get it the right way. Through hard work!

 

Listen to his ridiculous statements! Food?!
 

I digress.

Now, where were we? Oh yeah, we were talking about how we’re going to change this mess of a world. And in order to do this, we must think in terms of “liquidation”. Everything must go! All over the world, we have to revamp the system. Gut it out! This is a world epidemic! And we can’t change the world if we continue to allow the same people with the same thinking pass the laws, run the businesses, teach our children, control our food sources, tell us who or what God is, and have an ill intent on making us sick for profit. But most importantly, we must first  begin the change with ourselves 

 

It is time for you (you know who you are) and I to stand up strong and tall in a fierce intent to shift our lives and this world completely from the old, destructive energies to the new, life-affirming energies. We are the mid-wives assisting in this difficult but glorious birth of a brand new world to come. Are you with me?

Often I hear of some of the most excellent ideas from people wanting to create more  conscious businesses  that are truly for the betterment of humanity. Are you one of those people? Or, maybe you’ve shared with family or friends the many things that are wrong with our school system and what you’d do to change it. Maybe you’ve even mentioned a thing or two on Facebook expressing a few brilliant bullet points on how you’d address differently certain current political issues. Whatever the skill, if you feel compassionate enough about it to want to make a difference with it then it’s time you start shining your light to become the much-needed leadership for changing the world. . 

So, here’s the plan. First take this Conscious Business Assessment Test  to see if you’re ready for entrepreneurship. Next download these free  worksheets  to help cultivate and outline your passion to understand more clearly how you can turn it into a conscious and sustainable business that will benefit the world. The world doesn’t need another business, the world needs a conscious business. So, think of your business in terms of not only benefiting people but also benefiting the planet as well. Or, use the worksheets to create a proposal designed to revamp the educational, political, and healthcare arenas. Learn  how to write a grant  to obtain the funds you’ll need to  get your ideas off the paper and into the world.

 

If you have a desire to help change the world but not the desire to start a business or work in any of these capacities, your positive intention is still very much needed for shifting these old, tired energies out of the way to make way for the new. Believe it or not, intentionally living from the heart still contributes toward the greater good for all. 

 

 

Contributing to the energy shift of our planet can take many different forms. For instance, growing a small garden  on your porch, backyard, or even a window box can be a wonderful way to get things moving in a positive direction. Think about it, if you and your family are growing and eating toxic-free foods, you’ll be more likely to want a toxic-free society. Also, your neighbors can become curious, start asking questions then next thing you know more of your neighbors are now growing their own gardens. Soon a community garden  pops up and the possibilities become endless.
