Feel More Connected Through Sacred Living
What is sacred living?
Sacred living is about honoring yourself and everyone and everything around you as sacred. It means to live in alignment with your highest self and to be connected to everything. When you treat everyone and everything as sacred, you inherently take on an attitude of reverence and gratitude.
Sacred living is about living from a place of love and respect. You understand that everything you do affects someone or something else. You take nothing for granted because you know that all things are connected and deserve your respect.
Why should I choose a path of sacred living?
Sacred living is the right path for you if you’re feeling disconnected, empty, alone, or overwhelmed. Sacred living allows you to see the meaning in life and to feel connected to something bigger than yourself.
Sacred living gives you the tools you need to feel centered. With this path, you will feel more able to deal with challenges life throws at you because you will know yourself and be centered.
I’ve been practicing magick for 20 years. I’ve studied spirituality, religion, history, and culture both personally and academically. I’ve been an avid student of magick, of the sacred, and of people for many years.
I’ve also been nothing. I’ve been where you are right now. I’ve felt empty, disconnected, like life is meaningless.
I’ve been so busy and overwhelmed that I barely had time to breathe, let alone make any time for myself.
I’ve forgotten who I am. I’ve forgotten that I am a person—a person I love no less.
I’ve forgotten that I have innate wisdom, that I can listen to my feelings and my inner voice and know the right path.
I’ve forgotten that life is meant to be lived, not just survived. I’ve forgotten that I hold the reins to my life, not someone else.
And I’ve forgotten that I am a part of something bigger. That I am connected to the earth, to the critters, to all the people that exist on this planet. That I am connected to the past and to the future.
That we are all a part of all that is.
A few years into the job that I hold now, I was restless. I found the job no longer challenged me, but I also wanted to find a career field that spoke to something deeper in me than government service did.
So, I went back to school. I did this while holding down a full-time job and being a parent. I was busy and overwhelmed by everything, so my practicing of magick fell to the wayside.
Later, my grandfather passed, and I became even busier. My kids were grown, but now I had adorable grandbabies to spoil, was in grad school (where I still am!), held down a full-time job, and had to take on the additional responsibilities of my grandmother’s finances and organizing her care.
My life became so overwhelming that I felt pulled in a million directions with no time for myself. There was always something I had to do. By the end of my day, I would crash in front of Netflix because I was just too tired to even care for myself.
I hardly even considered myself pagan anymore. I hadn’t practiced in years. I wasn’t even sure I believed in anything anymore. I had no more connection to nature or energy.
I was disillusioned with life. I was apathetic. Everything stressed me out. I would avoid doing things I needed to do because I couldn’t deal with the overwhelm and the stress.
Then my husband and I took a brief but much-needed trip to see our daughter in Idaho. While we were there, I noticed a distinct quiet that struck me as odd. I asked my husband if he had noticed the lack of bugs. It sounds like a silly thing, but not hearing frogs and crickets really bothered me. They’re a part of the background noise at my house, so not hearing them stood out.
While this might seem like an unimportant thing to most people, it was a revelation to me.
For the first time in years, I had noticed nature. (Or rather a lack of it!)
For the rest of that trip, I paid close attention to the land.
As we drove back into the Willamette Valley, I was struck by how green and full of life it was. I could feel the land. It was a part of me. I was a part of it.
That feeling stuck with me. I dove back into finding my center and my connection to life. I began putting together a practice that could be done even with my limited time.
This way of sacred living brought meaning back to my life in the span of a moon cycle. I felt more connected, more centered, more whole than I had in years.
I learned to find the sacred in myself and all things through simple yet effective methods. These methods can work as well for beginners as they will for seasoned practitioners because they aren’t about how much you have studied magick, they are about how you live your life.
These methods will help you honor the sacred both within yourself and in the outside world.
I’m here to guide you on your journey toward living a meaningful life that you love. You have everything you need already within you. Together, we can find it and bring it to the conscious level.
You are sacred.
You need only to remember.
A little about me. I’m a mom of four and a grandma of two (soon to be three!) amazing grandkids. I share my space with four dogs and a snake, and I have an addiction to books that I have no intention of overcoming. I’m currently pursuing my MS in Marketing because I firmly believe in the power of marketing to connect people with brands that will bring value into their lives. I also convert spider-haters into spider-savers. Because spiders are amazing 🙂
