Do you want a little extra magic in your life? Are you seeking a new career and sending off resumes? Maybe you are applying to your dream college or program of study. Wherever you are, knowing how to welcome success into your life, by creating a blessing ceremony can help you live abundantly.
I love the magic of ceremonies. There is something about slowing down and being very intentional with our thoughts and actions, that I find beautiful. It is almost like weaving love into my thoughts, dreams and actions before I send them off to the Universe.
There are ceremonies for almost anything in life. You can have a releasing ceremony to help you let go of what is not serving you. You can create an abundance ceremony when you are struggling with your ability to see abundance.
I am in the final stages of putting together a book proposal. This has not been a solo journey. My editor has helped me. I also rely on another person to make it look great and to put everything in one file.
My Guides, Angels, Universe and ancestors are also helping me. It is in recognizing the unseen, that I will create a blessing ceremony and make the send off of my book proposal a sacred event.
I am being very intentional on what I am bringing into my blessing ceremony. Keep reading and discover some possible choices you might include in your next blessing ceremony.
Before you begin planning your ceremony, be very clear with your intention. Also remember that in the ceremony we are offering our desires to the Universe. We have no control in how they will manifest. However, we know it will be for our highest good.
One more important aspect, all ceremonies should be held in the space of love and light.
Begin your ceremony with a feeling of gratitude. Look at the abundance and support in your life. Celebrate how far you have come.
Gratitude opens up your heart and automatically takes you to the beautiful flow of receiving and sharing Universal energy.
What is your intention. Be very clear about this. It should all fit into one small sentence. Meaning, it is not hinging on anything else for success. Your intention should be the desired final outcome.
Look at the phase of the moon. If you are in a time crunch here are a few possible phases to consider.
New moon is not time for action, so it is not ideal for a specific blessing ceremony. However you could do a blessing of your dreams. This will not have the strong feeling of action, like some of the other phases of the moon.
First quarter: First quarter moon is about taking steps towards your dream. This is a great time to do a blessing ceremony. However there is one phase that is the strongest.
Waxing Gibbous: The waxing Gibbous is when everything falls into alignment. This is the time to take the final step!
Full Moon: The Full moon is the after party; we may see the results we were seeking. It is a great time for celebrating and having parts of our life illuminated. We may gain insight on the next step towards our dream.
I love looking at the calendar for an auspicious date. This can be a lucky number of yours. It can also be a loved one’s birthday or some other anniversary. You want the date to be associated with something that makes you happy.
You can also use numerology, the Chinese calendar, or the Panchang Auspicious date calculation. Choose what resonates with your heart and intention.
I am using Vedic Astrology as an aide for my auspicious date. The date I chose is good for fulfillment of desires, spiritual progress and much more.
Before I start my ceremonies I sage the area. I do this as much to clear my mind, as to clear the space.
I will take several deep breaths and allow myself to feel the connection to Earth and All That Is.
I prefer sitting on the ground when doing my ceremonies.
I use this time of breath to begin the call for my ancestors, Guides, Angels and All That Is, into my sacred event. I reconnect with the feeling of gratitude for all that I have in my life.
I have now created a sacred circle with my ancestors, Angels, Guides and All That Is. It is here that I share my gratitude for their guidance. I ask them to deliver my dream (book proposal), to the right people at the perfect time. I ask that they follow this project and bless it every step of the way.
I release any worries or doubts, I have the energy of this moment to connect with, when ever needed.
I thank the members of my sacred circle and know they are never far.
Crystals are great for helping anchor the energy you want to work with. Here is a quick guide to some crystal energy you may want to use.
To enhance concentration use Hematite, Smokey Quartz, and Soldite.
To enhance luck you can explore the use of Tiger’s eye, Citrine and Quartz.
There are even crystals that help many types of disciplines. For example I might choose clear quartz, tiger’s eye and Citrine, that are all good for writers. I might also choose blue quartz, to enhance my concentration.
Ultimately I will reach out to my favorite crystal guru, Carolyn Fike and get her suggestions and see what aligns with my heart.
I love candles. I purchased a new one just for writing this blog. Here are a couple ways to decide what type of candle you will work with.
Green candles are good for opening the heart and calling in new life into old projects.
Yellow candles call in vitality.
Red is a color my guides always show me regarding one’s professional path. It can be viewed as grounding. Some may view it as a power color. Follow your gut and see if a red candle is the right choice for you.
White candles are perfect for protection and calling in the white light.
Orange candles are great for creativity and overall wellness.
I haven’t decided what candle or candles I will use. That is part of the fun of planning a ceremony. You are creating the perfect alchemy for your sacred circle.
There are so many types of essential oils available. The most important part of choosing your oil is deciding what elements you want in your ceremony. Here are just a few essential oils you might consider.
Orange oil is great for creative thinking and being open to lighter elements.
Lemongrass oil is associated with wealth.
Rosemary oil can improve clarity.
Patchouli is grounding and helps sharpen the mind.
Frankincense promotes focus and is also grounding.
Ylang-ylang can be used to amplify gratitude.
There are oils that can help connect with our ancestors, angels and guides. Have fun researching your perfect blend.
I am relying on Eva, founder of Down to Earth oils to create a custom blessing oil for me. I contacted her to create oils for each ceremony in my upcoming retreat. While planning with her, I realized that I need one for my book blessing ceremony.
Deciding on an affirmation to be used during and after your ceremony is important. You may just decide to use the short statement of intention. For example, I might use, “ my book is successfully published.”
It is important that your affirmation feels true. You will say it several times in your ceremony and say it daily in your prayers. The idea is to stay steeped in that powerful energy of your blessing ceremony.
Have fun creating a ceremony that uses some or all of the tools mentioned above. You get to decide the where, when and how you call the magic of the universe into your life and dreams. These experiences can be as simple or elaborate as you desire, enjoy the process.
Let me know of all the great ceremonies you orchestrate, or if you would like any books to help you decide on your special tools.
Contact me at Pollywirum.com if you are seeking to transform your life with spiritual life coaching or if you are ready for a psychic reading.
Creating the magical foundation of your life is the process of calling in the Universal Energies to break apart and restructure the energy of your thoughts, helping them to flow easily.
When you seek the assistance of your guides and angels they banish the possibility of you not experiencing what is for your highest good. You are draped in love and light.
It is impossible for you to not fulfill your soul’s plan, when calling in your spiritual team.
Just as your dreams can be realized in many different possibilities; your soul’s lesson plan can be accomplished in many scenarios. With that being said, trust your Angels, guides and heart to make the wisest choice.
