On a recent vacation to Mesa Verde National Park, we attended an educational ceremony on the ancestral people of that region. I have always been a firm believer in the importance of rituals (as are most energy workers). If you search any ancient culture, you will find a plethora of various rituals that were sacred to each of these cultures. One of my favorites is that of blessing the earth prior to establishing a village. This was done by incorporating elaborate dress, beating of drums, and dancing all around the area. If you dissect this on an energy level, it makes perfect sense.
- Setting the intention to bless the ground.
- Incorporating colors into the elaborate dress (and vibration with the use of shells incorporated into the design).
- Vibrational rhythmic energy with the intensity of drums.
- Dancing – taking physical action as well as matching the energy vibration of the drums and the energy of the individual with that of the earth.
There are so many examples of ancient cultures establishing rituals. This experience has made me realize just how significant they are in working with universal source energy. I know that finding my own personal rituals has not only been an extremely healing experience but also makes me feel connected to my spirit guides and ancestors. If you are searching for a way to incorporate rituals that are more personal to you, be open, ask your guides and allow yourself to play. Rituals and right action should trigger a sense of well-being at a souls level.
