Ritual Teachings from Ancient Atlantis

Welcome Seeker, Know Thyself! 
I want to share with you an ancient ritual that has a long oral tradition, passed from person to person, dating back to the lost civilization of Atlantis. I learned this ritual over 20 years ago and have followed these teachings ever since. It is by connecting to the earth in this sacred and powerful way that I first opened to the other earthly realms and could clearly see the tree nymph that nurtures the plant kingdom.  It is a magical journey like no other.

You will learn how to prepare your body to reach a higher level of vibration that will help you gain a closer connection to the earth.  You will learn how to follow the cycles of the year and perform ritual in a sacred way on the Winter Solstice, Spring Equinox, Summer Solstice and Fall Equinox.

For those who seek to embody the highest vibrations within their being, for those who resonate with the Christ consciousness, for those who wish to walk in the light of the divine, this ritual will show you how to embody that which what you wish to study so that it becomes part of your own vibration.

We will start in the winter when the Bear is in hibernation and the growing season is over, harvest has been celebrated and the earth has stilled her energy.  It is now when we will bury ourselves deep in the ground to begin storing energy for springs’ new growth.

November 2011: Grace & Gratitude

“Grace isn't a little prayer you chant before receiving a meal. It's a way to live.”   ~ Jackie Windspear

Grace and Gratitude go hand in hand. Without grace there is no gratitude and without gratitude there is simply no grace. Bringing these two concepts to life in our daily lives is probably one of the single most important things that we can do for both spiritual and material growth. Many feel as though grace is an elusive, fleeting thing in their life. While it is true that we cannot force a state of grace, it is also true that we can magnetize ourselves into a state of grace through an attitude of gratitude. And gratitude can be cultivated by becoming more aware and raising consciousness, seeing new perspectives and having compassion for self and others. This is the energy of the times as the month of November ushers in a very special ritual called Thanksgiving. Yet, Thanksgiving becomes a daily occurrence when you are in a state of grace. As we start to notice the deeper, hidden meaning behind the events and circumstances of our life, we begin to realize just how miraculous and magical the creationary force is. We begin to get a sense at what we might be missing when we spend too much time railing about what is wrong and not seeing what is right. The more we see the beauty behind what is wanting expression, the more compassionate we are, the more we know that we are in grace... the more grateful we are.

You do not attract what you want. You attract what you are. ~Wayne Dyer
