In essence, a ritual is about bringing sacredness into your life, and about honoring something greater than you and I. It is about honoring the mystery, and the bringer of life in all things, from the flowers to the trees, to the birds, the tiny caterpillar glistening on a fresh leaf, or the waking sun, and the moonlight.
There is a divine force that moves through all things, like a river, enlivening all of life. It is the same force that moves the plant to flower, the wolf to howl, and moves the caterpillar into becoming the butterfly. As we become more aware of this higher force moving in our lives and express our gratitude for it, it expands and colors daily life with radiance and light that connects us to all living things.
Ritual is simply a set of actions that often includes symbolic and elemental components used ceremonially. Most rituals are meant to either symbolically or literally bring about some type of transformation in the recipient, bringing about a greater awakening.
A sacred ritual celebrates and activates, this inner transformation in a ceremonial way, which serves as a reminder to yourself and the universe that you are ready to let go of that which is not serving your highest good and allows the new, true you to emerge.
