When created with meaning and intention, creative rituals can have a powerful effect on your life. They can be a catalyst for a breakthrough in growth on your journey. Or they can honor a successful step forward.
They can support you in removing obstacles that stand in your way or releasing that which no longer serves you in reaching your higher self.
They can recognize the deeper gifts you have kept hidden. Or help to remember the divine being that you are.
Including creative rituals in your daily or weekly rhythm will support you in connecting with your divine self while releasing tension from the day and bringing you a sense of calm and peace. Your spirit will be uplifted and your soul nourished.
You can get started with these 3 simple, creative rituals:
Put on some of your favorite music and get moving! Flowing, free movement can help you let go of the stress from the day. You’ll release tension and connect with your emotions.
Add this creative ritual at the same time each day, and you’ll feel your nervous system relax and your mood uplifted.
2. Gaze at the night sky
Go outside at night before bed and look up at the night sky. Notice the location of the stars and the phase of the moon. In the darkness of the new moon, contemplate what you will manifest as a new birth into the world in the next month. Watch the moon increase in size over the following weeks. When it becomes a full moon, express your gratitude for the abundance that exists in your life.
Try this creative ritual at least once a week. Notice how you feel afterward. Do you feel lighter? More peaceful?
3. Cook meals with mindfulness
As you wash, chop, and stir ingredients for your meal, notice the colors, smells, and textures. Feel gratitude for the food you’ve been given. Place the food beautifully on the plate. Eat your meal slowly with attention to each bite.
Enjoy this creative ritual once a day and notice how your body responds. How is your digestion? Your mood? Your mindset?
We, as human beings, are naturally creative. When we engage our creative side in simple creative rituals, we begin to experience more joy, health, and peace in our lives. Give it a try!
