My teacher, "Ten Bears" said, "When we walk outside the wheel of life, we are at the effect of all things and we affect nothing." I felt the power of entering the Wheel of Life or Medicine Wheel while participating in ceremony usually somewhere in the mountains with a group.
This was always a transformative experience that opened my mind and heart to a world of possibilities. I felt alive and vital and in tune with Life.
Unfortunately, after returning home my world shrunk back to pretty much where it was before I went to the mountains. It wasn't until I discovered what was missing that things began to change.
These experiences where big events for me and I continue to conduct and participate in them each year. The missing piece was bringing it home as a practice. Conducting personal ceremony on a regular basis in my home or yard or office is an invitation to the World, to Spirit, to Life itself to come join me in the center of my own Sacred Circle.
This is when with clear intention I began a collaborative dance with life. The ceremony can involve burning sage with a prayer of intention or a meditation. This ceremony can be as simple and as beautiful as a breath. A subtle releasing exhale and a receptive inhale each cycle complete yet reborn into the moment.
It is an invitation to our being to let go and return to a place in which it already resides. A place that every religion refers to. The Holy of Holy's, Ground of Being, Center of Creation or the Center of Your Own Sacred Circle. This space awakens from within us with the gentle breeze, the chime of a bell, sunlight reflecting on a lake, a soothing voice.
Listen beneath the chatter of the mind and you will discover a whole new world awaits. Find some time in your day for Personal Ceremony and you may just be surprised at how beautiful your World has become.
