A Simple Ritual Exercise To Speak Your Truth
Being able to freely share what’s on your heart and mind is a beautiful way to express your divine gifts with the world and build authentic relationships.
Often, though, we censor ourselves and get caught up in worrying about what other people think. When that happens, our inner light dims. We feel unheard, and that can lead to pent-up emotions and frustration.
If you’re struggling to share what’s on your mind, try this Speak Your Truth ritual:
Speak Your Truth Ritual
You will need:
- A journal or something to write with
- An almond
- Lavender oil.
The first step is to get clear on what you actually want to say by writing it out.
To gain clarity, you can write “If I were truly sharing what I need to express, I would say…” and answer as many times as you like.
This is especially useful if you need to have a difficult conversation with someone, and you want to express yourself without being hurtful.
When it comes time to share what you want to say with other people, dab some lavender oil on the base of your throat. Put the almond in your pocket (both are associated with Mercury, which rules communication). Touch the almond as you’re speaking if you feel nervous, or feel the need to tap back into your truth.
You can also dab lavender oil and touch the almond to say the words you’ve written out loud when no-one else is there. To hear yourself say the words can add weight and power to what you’ve written down.
On completing the ritual, you can dispose of your written words in a ritual fashion to cleanse and purify yourself. If you wish, you may keep them in a time capsule. It may help to look back on what was important to you later in life, to see how you’ve progressed and how much you’ve stayed true to your deep inner core.
