For 25 years now my wife and I have undertaken a ritual on New years Eve or sometime New Years Day. It has served us well.
Sacred Path Cards by Jamie Sams (pictured).
I was initially skeptical.
I read the extensive book that goes with the cards based on my abiding interest in indigenous cultures and particularly spiritual thinking pre and post religion. Jamie’s work is based on the wisdom of Native Americans. I was enthralled with what I read.
Every year since the wisdom we’ve learned from the teachings in the book have proven to be accurate as we reflect on past experiences and what they mean for us in the present and the future.
On New Year Eve 2016 the word Catalyzer from the book was the standout for me.
On New Years Day I googled Catalyzer and found the following at this link.
1. a person who proactively helps another person do something they want, which the wanting person could not or would not do on their own
2. someone who causes or accelerates something desirable to occur for another person or persons, which would have either occurred slowly or not at all
3. an individual who sees someone else is not achieving their potential and gets dynamically involved in the person's life to help them improve it
Catalyzer is indeed what I do.
How about you?
What are the rituals that you undertake to find and stay on your sacred path?
And are some of them a bit left field or outside of the normal for you?
Who will you become? What will you do next?
