Anchor with Intention : A Ritual

Posted by Shemana Elixirs on

Ritual for Grounding and Centering

Materials Needed:

  • A quiet, comfortable space
  • A small bowl of water
  • Palo Santo (always sustainably sourced)
  • Shaman Ritual Mist 


  1. Prepare Your Space: Find a quiet area where you won't be disturbed. Clear away any clutter and make the space feel peaceful. 

  2. Set Your Intentions: Sit comfortably and take a few deep breaths to center yourself. Close your eyes and visualise your intentions for this ritual. What do you hope to achieve? Hold this intention clearly in your mind.

  3. Cleanse with Smoke: Light a stick of Palo Santo, allowing the stick to flame and then blowing gently to allow the smoke to billow. With slow, deliberate movements, waft the smoke around your body, starting from your feet and moving upwards. As you do this, imagine the smoke clearing away any negative or stagnant energy, leaving you feeling cleansed and renewed.

  4. Connect with Water: Take the small bowl of water in your hands and hold it to your heart. Feel the coolness of the water against your skin and imagine it grounding you, like the roots of a tree sinking deep into the earth. Visualise any excess energy flowing down into the water, leaving you feeling calm and centered.

  5. Invigorate with Shaman Mist: Shake your Shaman Mist to gently activate the essential oils. Close your eyes and spray the mist above your head, letting it cascade down over your body like a gentle rain. As the mist settles on your skin, feel its earthy aroma enveloping you, anchoring you firmly to the present moment. Allow your intention to anchor firmly in your mind's eye.

  6. Reflect with Gratitude: Take a few moments to reflect on your experience. How do you feel now compared to before the ritual? Notice any sensations or insights that arise. When you're ready, express gratitude for the grounding energy that surrounds you and the opportunity to reconnect with yourself.

  7. Close the Ritual: To close the ritual, extinguish your palo santo and pour the water outside, returning any excess energy to the earth. Take a final deep breath and open your eyes, knowing that you are grounded, centered, and ready to embrace a new time.
