Practice: Day 4 // Honoring Risk
Moon in Hasta + Day 4 Waning Cycle
I’m loving this platform. I hope you are as well.
Some last minute thoughts on ‘Why Ritual’ is important. As a daughter of a high-voltage electrician, I learned early on the importance of honoring a risky relationship with electricity.
It’s like this: Containment and the masculine creates safety for the wild and feminine shakti/electricity
Electricity channeled appropriately (and grounded) affords us light and warmth and the ability to cook and provide nourishment for ourselves and others.
Unchanneled electricity, for example ‘lightning’ is unchanneled. Chaotic. Can be deadly when encountered directly.
Ritual allows us to corral our inner electricity we call prana and guide it to something of higher use, spiritual practice, working with our charges and triggers and eventually building a stronger container. I’ll be diving deeper into this in April, May and June: https://www.thewisdomsanctuary.com/ry
When I nourish and take care of my body, I connect to the wisdom, power, courage, and love of my Ancestors.

If you wish, I’ve included a meditation I created over 5 years ago on Honoring Risk. I’m still playing with the ins and outs of delivering content so I’m excited to hear how you receive this video (…if you receive it).
