WHY A RITUAL

Every aspect of AKASHA Sacred is about connecting to the divine within us and around us, and bringing it into our daily lives. One powerful way we can do this is through bringing ritual consciousness and practice into our regular self-care routines, and periodically with longer ritual practices. The creation and manufacturing of each AKASHA Sacred product also involves a great deal of conscious ritual and blessing (see The AKASHA Sacred Story). Therefore, ritual is a golden thread that runs through the entirety of the AKASHA Sacred experience: products, events, training, and tribe/community.

Ritual can be long and involved, or it can be quick and easy.

We invite you to use AKASHA Sacred products with an awareness of their spiritual and energetic properties.

CREATE YOUR PRACTICE 

Make It Your Own
You can follow the instructions and ideas we provide, or you can make up your own rituals. Follow your own intuition and be creative. Play. Explore.

Its all about the consciousness you bring to the moment.

 

Affirmations
Each product page includes an affirmation. Reading or saying it on its own or while using the related product is a ritual in and of itself. It is also a great way to connect with the energy and consciousness that the product offers. Feel free to adapt any affirmation according to your own inspiration. Speak the affirmation aloud or silently, once or many times, as you feel guided.

Every ritual idea/instruction can be adapted for your needs and schedule on any given day, at any given moment.

Your own intuition is your strongest guide and ally. You can always see what your inner guidance leads you to do. A ritual can be done solo, with a partner, or in a group. The length of the ritual can be shortened or extended, as you desire. Rituals can be combined as the muse guides you. Think of the AKASHA Sacred products as your paint palette, your inner guidance, your paintbrush, and each day of your life a blank canvas upon which to express yourself.

 

Movement & Flow of Energy
Some rituals or product instructions mention tuning into, or feeling, a flow of energy. Each person feels energy flow in his or her own way. You may already be well-versed in the way you connect with energy. But if youre new to this, give yourself plenty of time and space to experiment and explore what works for you. For some, the energy flow feels like a tingling or a buzzing; others see colors or light in their minds eye. Still others hear inner sounds. There are a myriad of ways to connect with the energy.

You might not feel anything at first, but keep going. Your connection to the energy will appear in a way that you can feel and perceive. The nature of energetic work is that it can be subtle as well as ever changing. Finally, its helpful to note that the way the energy flow shows up for you can depend on what your system is needing in the moment. So, be open and easy about it. And allow the process to unfold, with a sense of curiosity and play.

 

Divine-on-the-Fly
Remember that even a few seconds can give you a touch of the sacred, a touch of ritual consciousness, which can have a positive effect on the rest of your day.

 

Long & Luxurious
When you have more time or for a special occasion, any of the rituals can be lengthened and expanded. Light a candle. Play some music that resonates with the energy of the ritual and product. Dance. Meditate. Write in your journal. Paint or draw. Follow your inner spark and wisdom. Linger in the ritual as long as you wish.

SUGGESTED OPPORTUNITIES
To unwind before bedtime.
To get ready for a date, important meeting, or special occasion.
To cleanse your energy field after a stressful day or experience.
To bless your living or working space.
To energize a desire or rite of passage in your life.

 

Combining Products & Rituals
Often we have more than one desire or priority going on at once. If you want to connect with more than one type of energy, for example to cleanse your system or prepare for an event or project, feel free to combine rituals and products—or do a few or even several in sequence.

 

Other Blessings, Rites of Passage, Ceremonies, & Events
AKASHA Sacred rituals can make a wonderful addition to a larger ceremony, ritual, blessing, rite of passage, or event. Moon circles, weddings, christenings, blessingways … and on and on.

The opportunities to bring AKASHA Sacred into your daily life and your special occasion lifeare endless. Have fun.

To get you started, below are some suggested products and correlating rituals—for frequently experienced needs and desires—that will help you connect to the desired energies.
