A spiritual awakening isn’t a quick fix. It isn’t something anyone else can do for you or that you can wrap up in a few days. The process can actually take years. And the thing to remember is it isn’t about the final destination because, in reality, there is no final destination.
It’s about the Journey and what you learn about yourself along the way.
This ritual will help you become balanced and grounded when everything else in your life feels as it it’s spinning out of control.
- Your go to crystal (spheres or not – need to fit into the palms of your hands) for grounding, balance and focus. let’s say you choose hematite
- One smoky quartz for centring and stabilising energies
- One sage stick
- One feather
- One abalone shell or fire proof container to catch ashes from the sage
- Your favourite cup of tea
If you are in Macau you can find all these and other beautiful items at the stunning Gem Awakening
THE RITUAL STEPS
(adapted from Energy Muse’s Everyday Rituals book)
Ideally, this ritual should be done outside with bare-feet on the earth. If this isn’t an option, you can surely do it indoors. The most important thing is that you do it. This ritual is so simple that you can actually do it every day.
- Sage you space and cleanse your crystals
- Hold the crystals in your hands. Close the eyes and take 3 deep breaths. Aloud or in your head say this:
“I ask that the highest vibration of love and light connect with my highest self to clear all unwanted energy and any previous programming. I command these crystals to hold the intentions of becoming: grounded, balanced and aligned with the earth’s energy. Thank you Thank you Thank you.
- Stand with your feet slightly a part and firmly planted on the ground. You can also be seated but make sure your feet are firmly on the ground.
- Place the smokey quartz between your feet, and hold the spheres in your hands.
- Take 3 deep breaths in and out through your nose and mouth.
- With each exhalation, move your awareness to your first chakra (at your tailbone). Silently say, I am grounding my energy into the core of the earth.
- Visualise a white ball of light spinning within your body between your hips. Observe this light expanding, filling your 1st chakra. Visualise this light travelling from your hips down to your knees and to your feet.
- Visualise a thick cord filled with light and growing from the sole of each foot, travelling down to the core of the earth. See the cords from your feet become one as they dive deeper and deeper into the crystal core of the earth.
- See these cords rooting into this crystal core and allow yourself to feel centred and connected. Release all your fears, burdens, anger and unresolved issues into the light, propelling them down the cord cord into the earth.
- Inhale deeply. Starting at the core of the earth, see the intertwined cord fill with the light. Visualise the light traveling back up the cord, separating into two balls of light as the cord splits into two and enters the soles of your feet.
- Visualise the two balls moving up to your knees and rejoining at your first chakra.
- As you finish your visualisation, gently open your eyes and take a few moments to come back.
- Once ready, reach out to your cup of tea and journal your experience. Otherwise, just stay there and enjoy your moment.
