Creating your own Sacred Space

SacredSpace

It’s important to take time to step back to rejuvinate and replenish yourself. A time for reflection, for looking within, assessing and setting intentions. For some it can be a certain activity or ritual that helps them feel relaxed and replenished and for some it can be a certain place. We wanted to share a few tips on how to make a rad boho inspired space to wind down, reflect on your journey and just relax.

1. Location, location, location. The space can be small or large, inside or out as long as it encourages a peaceful mindset, a place to replenish your mind, body & soul.

2. Find inspiration in what you love. Chose what smells, sounds, looks, and feels good to you. Things that give you energy, inspire you. This could be comfy cushions, scarves, blankets, vision boards, art, stones & crystals, essential oil diffusers. You name it.

3. Journal. Have something you can write on, to record any questions, feelings or inspirations from your day. It gives you a chance to express yourself and allows you to dig deep, reflect and encourages you to relax and unwind.

4. Add plants & flowers, they increase energy, color & oxygen. Different colours represent different feelings & emotions, include colours that align with your intentions.

5. It is important to enter your space with your intentions clear, to leave the chaos outside of your space, so as to allow cultivation of only your truest potential.

Remember that this space is yours, created by your intuition. Honour that intuition, let it flow through you, don’t be afraid to make alterations to your space at anytime as you progress through your journey.

The Best Gifts We’ve Every Received #giveintention

 

 



 

Dee: Friendship
Friendship is kind of like a party. Your energy draws people in. BFF’s that are always down for an adventure, sisters to soul speak with, besties that light a spark within us + a tribe to keep us grounded. Friends make us smile + allow us to be our authentic selves. They will forever hold a special place in our hearts.
 

Katie: Intuition
I’ve learned that although following your gut instinct on something might feel scary or wrong, it always leads you exactly where you need to be. I like to remind myself of a quote which has stuck with me since I read it: “If something doesn’t feel right, it probably isn’t!”


 

Amy: Perspective
Volunteering with senior citizens and disabled adults at a nursing home made me realize the importance of valuing each moment – each day that we wake up healthy and free and surrounded by friends and family. It makes daily annoyances and minor issues seem really petty!
 

Renee: Travel
Exploring not only everything this beautiful world has to offer, but also exploring what you are capable of. Wake up, have no plan at all, get lost in foreign spaces and discover new things. Traveling has taught me to take nothing for granted. To stop, take a minute and appreciate everything around you.

We caught up with MB to find out whats in her bag!

my iPad mini: My husband surprised me with this gift last Christmas and I carry it with me everywhere. It’s chock full of all of my favorite music (Lapsley, Erykah Badu, Bonobo), my favorite books (anything by Byron Katie plus a billion other books) and notes for my classes, retreats, blogs, etc. It’s a creative Virgo’s dream come true!
 
Stinky Yogi’s Pranayama Blend: I am obsessed with this blend of essential oil by my girl Stacey. The blend is peppermint, eucalyptus, rosemary and lemon.
 
my Rock Your Bliss mala: I love the mala Jacki and I designed with Tiny Devotions. My favorite stone is the Howlite guru stone which influences you to release stress and let go of negativity so you can create space in your heart and mind for love, creativity + bliss. The stone inspires us to receive wisdom and attunement from the Higher Self and the Divine. And the mala is GORGEOUS. (ya… we totally agree MB! :))
 
my red, tattered, so-loved Moleskine notebook: Oh man, this notebook has been loved up. It’s full of class sequences, musings, to-do lists, etc. I love looking through it. And the back pocket is stuffed with notes, things ripped out of magazines, etc.
 
my headphones: I adore my noise cancellation headphones for solo coffee shop dates. It says “I’m focused, no chit chat.” :)
 
my Moo business cards: You know how some people get offended by the question, “So what do you do?” I find this the juiciest question ever and am absolutely never offended. I love hearing what people are passionate about and what lights them up. And I’m always into building community. (Except in a coffee shop with my head phones on. :) )
 unnamed-2
my Ganesha keychain: I’ve had a Ganesha keychain in my bag for 9 years and have lost it several times and always find it. Ganesha is a Hindu deity and the remover of obstacles and I like to think that he’s working for me all the time.
 
Grab your gypset tote and hit up Rock Your Bliss’ next retreat!

Just Add Bliss

When you own a company called Rock Your Bliss you are kinda held accountable to, ya know, rock that bliss. That being said, we don’t wake up every single day bright eyed and bushy tailed, ready to take on the day. We no doubt have our slumps. But these are our top three tried and true ways to shortcut our way to bliss. Let us know what you think and share your own in the comments below.

#1 Infuse Intention.
When we’re not operating from a space of intention, we’re relying on our habitual ways of being. “Getting by,” if you will. Infuse intention into everything you do. How do you decide on the intention? First ask yourself what you want more of in your life. Creativity, playfulness, compassion. Then operate from that soul space.
 
#2 Move your body.
Jacki is a runner and a lover of yin yoga. MB is currently digging meditation, CrossFit and an occasional Pilates ass kicking. Whatever gets you out of your head and into your body (hello, dance party!) is all good. Just play.
 
#3 Unplug.
Leave your phone at home and go for a long walk with your pup, a hike in the mountains or along the shore. Look around. Observe. Instant dose of creativity and spaciousness.
 
Retreat:

Want bliss? Join MB and Jacki in Sayulita, Mexico October 10-17 for a transformational week in their favorite place on the planet. Amidst ocean breezes, expect life changing conversation, sweaty yoga sessions and blissed out evenings on the sand. @marybethlarue and @jackicarr designed a program that will uplift and inspire, and create big shifts in your daily life. At the same time, enjoy a vacay in a tropical paradise – surfing, snorkeling and sipping margaritas.Space is limited so snag your spot fast.

 
 

How To Host a Full Moon Party

a7529693-af38-4843-939d-c8a9d94b169e

…By hosting a Full Moon Party!

 

The energy of the new moon brings about a perfect time to energize your crystals, set new intentions, and cast away anything that no longer serves you. Full moons are symbolic of turning points, manifestations + closure.

 

During a Full Moon, the Moon is on the exact opposite side of the Earth from the Sun, bringing us a brightly lit spectacle. People used to plant, hunt, fish and even move by the seasons and cycles of the moon.

Living by the natural cycles of the universe and can keep you grounded and in a flow of abundance. Here are some simple steps to throwing your own Full Moon party:

 

1. Pick your venue:
Are you hosting the party in your home or outside? Lanterns, fairy lights, sparkly tinsel and starry decorations add moon-vibes to your indoor space. Drape your space in silver + white accents to bring light to outdoor settings. 
Tealight candles or a burning fireside will add a soft glow until the moonlight shines upon your party.

 

2. Recruit your Full Moon crew:
Rally together friends + family who motivate you, spark your soul and bring awareness. Invite those who may not be as spiritually advanced, too. You might be surprised and impressed by their Full Moon manifestations. 

 

3. Gather supplies:
Make sure you have everything you need for you + your guests to feel comfortable. Grab some note pads and pens for guests to manifest their intentions – or release baggage – by writing it down. After writing your intentions down, go around your circle of friends and share. Set up crystal grids with gemstones to direct cosmic energy towards a certain goal.
Cleanse your gemstones by placing them outside in the moonlight, or burn candles + smudge sticks to symbolize something you’re letting go of. Tarot cards are also a fun, spiritual activity you might wish to include.

 

4. Set the mood:
Cushions, blankets, incense burning, fire crackling. Play some soft, inspiring music and snack on fresh, detoxifying foods. Take your tribe on a stroll to watch the moon (or howl away!)

 

5. Place your written intentions somewhere sacred:

Perhaps it’s under your pillow, or placed neatly within a spiritual crystal altar. By writing your intentions down and verbally sharing them with friends, you hold yourself accountable to achieve them. The best part of this? It’s proven you’re actually more likely to achieve goals set this way. Take the time until the next New Moon or Full Moon to reflect upon how far you’ve come and what needs work.

We’ve put together the perfect kit for cleansing your gemstones! Check out the Full Moon Party Activation Kit
