Why Meditate?

Why Meditate?

It is a new year and a time to set intentions, or what we call in Sanskrit a sankalpa. Its important to set conscious intention, ones that are evolutionary and arise from the heart. In order to invoke the support of nature in the manifesting of these intentions we must have a solid daily meditation practice. Meditation not only provides us a pathway to higher state of consciousness it also plays an important role in stabilizing our nervous system.

In these times, we are constantly moving, our nervous systems are becoming unbalanced and agitated, the mind busy. It is necessary for us to take time to slow down and experience our steadfast center and allow ourselves the opportunity to connect to something greater. Through the practice of meditation we are able to stabilize our nervous system, transcend thought patterns and limiting beliefs, which leads us to be in a more receptive state to experience our higherself. As women it is especially important for us to cultivate a daily meditation practice as it gives us greater access to the infinite power that we naturally harness, it is this power that has manifesting power. Doing a daily practice meditation is not only benefical for us, but benefical for all the people in our lives. 

So, create space, just 20 minutes each morning to sit and come to stillness and breathe. 

Namaste and blessings for an abundant 2019!

Connecting to the Divine Feminine through Sacred Rituals

Connecting to the Divine Feminine through Sacred Rituals

Sacred rituals are conscious practices done to invoke grace and devotion, correct energy, and connect with the elements.  There is incredible power in practicing daily rituals in our lives. As women it is especially power to practice rituals as we are tuning into our natural grace and shakti (the feminine creative impulse of the universe). Practicing rituals brings us into a supreme state of receptivity. There are different types of rituals, some as simple as lighting incense or a candle in your home during sunrise and sunset to attune to the energy of the sun, as well as invoke inner illumination. Blessing your food before you eat it is also a beautiful ritual. Creating sacred space in your home is a beautiful place to start if you would like to bring more ritual into your life. An alter can face east, you can put anything that is important or sacred to you on it such as a murti or yantra, candle, picture, crystal or feather. This is a space that should feel good, where you can create a positive vibration and drop into silence easily.  

 

 

In India each day we do a personal puja, which can be performed in one’s home each morning to attune to the energy of the goddess and refine one’s consciousness, taking on her qualities. Puja is a ritual that brings us into a state of receptivity, receptive to the state of grace because grace is ever present. Puja allows us to offer our love back to existence, to connect to the vertical love which frees. The puja consists of different offerings of the elements- earth, water, air and fire, to the goddess along with a specific sequence of mantras to invoke her qualities. We do these offerings to the goddess, as she is an extension of our own self. It’s a beautiful way to start the day, in a space of devotion love and surrender.
