205 Nine Sacred Ways to Walk in Beauty

March 13, 2018

When you read the words ‘walk in beauty’ what comes to mind for you?

I’ve learned that walking in beauty is creating an intimate relationship with the goodness of all creation. I feel deep gratitude and respect for the Native American people who inspired my deeper curiosity about living in a beauty way.

There are nine elements that contribute to the beauty way: awareness, prayer, stewardship for the Earth, creativity, sacred living, self-love, community, personal responsibility, and feminine sovereignty.

In this fast-paced world, we can easily get lost in a sea of auto-pilot responsibilities and become blind to the crushing beauty all around us. We become out of balance with the natural rhythms of life when we try to push, control or go against the flow. Many women experience lives of quiet desperation because they believe they are trapped in the roles they play, and that these roles define their true feminine nature. They do not.

I walk in beauty by standing in my authentic power and expressing my voice through my teachings, writing, mentoring, podcasting. My personal practice began after my daughter was born and was amplified during an intense Yoga teacher training experience. Practicing Yoga, Joy Spotting® and reading Shambhala Sun (cover to cover). Since then, I’ve been deepening my spiritual practice by circling up with wise women, exploring Shamanic teachings and practicing loving kindness.

Today I will walk you through each of the nine sacred ways to walk in beauty. Each element comes with several questions for your consideration.

201 This Sacred Life - New Beginnings Ritual with Shann Vander Leek

January 4, 2018

I'm switching things up a bit to bring you This Sacred Life where I'll be recording personal musings about walking in beauty, reclaiming your feminine sovereignty, and celebrating your one precious life!

This is your life. How will you use your time? Work through this sacred ritual to set intentions for the new year. 

My Favorite New Beginnings Ritual

Now is the time for deep reflection about what you want to grow and manifest in your precious life.

What You Need to Begin Your Sacred Ceremony:

-Notebook & pen
-Your favorite Incense or smudge
-A quiet and comfortable space where you will be uninterrupted for 30 minutes or longer.
-Relaxing and supportive music. You can find lots of great music on Spotify or Pandora.

Once you settle in, light your candle, smudge your body or burn some incense. Take a deep cleansing breath and exhale. Drop your shoulders, soften your face, and then respond to the following prompts:

What did you do really well this year?

In what area of your life did you grow the most?

What is the most important thing you learned about yourself?

What are you ready to let go of that no longer serves you?

What more can you release to rejuvenate your energy during the darker days of the year?

What intentions will you set for yourself in the new year?

How will you invite more pleasure into your life?

Now read your answers, give thanks and praise and blow out your candle. When you‘re ready, jot down (on a separate piece of paper) what you choose to let go of, along with your intentions for the new year.

Then bless and safely burn your responses sending your intentions out to Goddess, God, Higher Power, Great Spirit or the Universe to complete your sacred ceremony.

You are a love. You are a goddess. You are a precious soul. I am honored that you choose to be part of the Transformation Goddess community.

Wishing you a Beautiful New Year!

Big LOVE, Shann
