5 Rituals to Feel Centered During Times of Change
Whether it is moving home, changing jobs, travelling or implementing a new lifestyle choice, change can sometimes leave us feeling scattered and unsettled. Planned or unexpected, 'good' or 'bad', it can distort our vision and distract from our priorities.
Incorporating rituals into our daily lives can help us stay centered, building up the resilience and calm that translates into quiet strength.
Watch the sun rise
Breathing in the dawn air and observing the rising sun can act as a reminder of the ubiquitous nature of change and our own place in the world.
Identify how you feel about change (fearful? resistant? addicted?) and practice daily affirmations to shift towards a more healthy, neutral outlook.
Cleanse your space
Having a true sanctuary allows us the balance and resilience to calmly accept and embrace change. You might like to simply declutter, or purify the energy in your home with sage or Feng Shui.
Mindfully being in contact with the earth's surface, and perhaps visualising roots reaching down beneath your feet, can bring about a powerful sense of serenity and stillness.
Plant seeds & watch them grow
Planting seeds can symbolise those sown in life during times of change, while nurturing growing plants can act as a reminder of the constant shifts, turns and transitions in the natural world.
