The authors present a delicate balance of psychology and philosophy to achieve a little something for everyone. Each chapter shares personal stories of people seeking relationships, or money, or health, or whatever other common need/want there may be. Following these stories are the rituals. These aren’t séances, but rather habitual strategies set to focus your mind. For example, someone seeking a life partner could leave an open drawer in their dresser, anticipating someone soon moving in.
The key here: rituals don’t bind, they liberate. These aren’t “watch the clock and schedule” strategies, but rather life changes meant to produce desired and worthy results. Sure, some may decry that some of these are strange particulars, but I promise you that there is something worthwhile here for you. For me, I specifically enjoy the visualization of pink-colored energy flowing out of my heart, enveloping those people I may have difficulty understanding. Whether that pink energy is real or not, attitudes change when colored as such.
I also appreciate the authors’ liberty in citing other comparative works. For instance, I enjoyed learning about Byron Kate’s The Work. There, we learn to ask if something is true, what happens when we believe that thought it true, and who we become without that thought.Read more ›
My intention is to be led by my spirit, and not my ego, in life. Easier said than done. Until I read Your Hidden Riches: Unleashing the Power of Ritual to Create a Life of Meaning and Purpose I didn't realize the value of ritual to connect to my spiritual side. Authors Janet Bray Atwood and Chris Atwood have created a wonderful guide for recognizing and practicing ritual in our day to day lives.
"Your hidden potential is woven into the secret patterning of your life," say the authors. "The answers to your deepest questions and most cherished hopes aren't somewhere outside you. Life is the answer to life. You must connect with that part of you where these answers, your riches, lie." How to do that? Through ritual, they believe.
In reading Hidden Riches I became aware of behaviors I do often - I just didn't call them "rituals". My meditation practice, for example, is a personal ritual. More than just a new label for a common behavior, though, the book reaffirmed the value of my meditation practice to me, and encouraged me to be more consistent with it. A ritual, after all, is not done haphazardly, but is repeated in a regular pattern.
Rituals do not have to be lofty spiritual practices, either. I liked how the authors gave examples of other types of rituals. One parent, for instance, asks three questions to her five year old as a bed time ritual:
"What is the best thing that happened to you today? What was the worst thing that happened to you today? What was the silliest thing that happened to you today?Read more ›
