Sacred Decisions

Sacred Decisions are pivotal choices where you take a powerful pause and explore deeply into what truly matters to you. You contemplate various paths and possibilities, soothe anxieties that arise, and only then, with clarity, make a choice that resonates deeply with your essence and values.

  • Treating a decision as sacred expands our awareness to encompass the preciousness of our connections and our core values.
  • Sacred decisions activate mindfulness, reverence, and respect for the people, ecosystem, and we-spaces that will be touched by our decision… while preserving the freedom to make the choice that is right for us individually.
  • Sacred decisions allow us to navigate uncertainty with grace while sidestepping the "analysis paralysis" that head-centered, fear-based decision-making can trigger.

Congruence Matters Here

Sacred Decisions call us to be congruent. What does that mean?

Congruence starts with knowing what matters to us. We tune in and listen deeply to our heart, our gut, our head, and our whole being from top to bottom. We open to our spiritual guidance alongside our earthly needs, desires, and limits.

As we start listing possible choices, we feel into how a choice meshes with what matters to us. If safety and respect are crucial for our thriving, how does each choice feel as supporting us in those ways?

If we need freedom in order to thrive, does a choice enhance the feeling of freedom in our body as we try it on?

Congruence when embodied supports a sacred decision with a knowing that we've considered the possibilities and selected what feels intimately right, right now.

It’s a BIG Deal! (to me)

What makes a decision a Sacred Decision? That's up to you!

Just because society thinks a decision is a big deal doesn't mean it holds a lot of significance for you. And just because your friend (or mom) says something is not a big deal doesn't mean that it isn't big for you.

Sacred decision-making is when we choose to accept that we're at a place where we need the depth of clarity that allows us to take action and hold healthy boundaries with others who might want/demand we do what they insist is "best for us." It is our inner guidance that matters deeply and completely.
