Embracing the Spiritual: A Renewed Relationship with the Sacred in 2024


As a minister of metaphysics, I pursue and find meaning in the sacredness of every day and everything. In my personal journey, an external longing for a good “living” caused me to take on beliefs that a “good” job and “small” sacrifices to support family and friends were valuable. A moment came when I could no longer deny that even with all my effort, I was struggling to live a “good” life. I had a deep-rooted belief that struggle was my only resource for pushing forward. But truthfully, I was struggling because my values were misplaced and I had disconnected myself from the divine. My spiritual detachment caused me to live a life I can only describe as claustrophobic panic and suffocation. I share my personal story to demonstrate the energy that has covered the world for some time, the feelings of being caught in tight corners, breathing shallow breaths. 

In 2024, we are being afforded alleviation of old constriction – space to breathe, live, and build. However, this freedom requires a conscious choice to reconnect and deepen our relationship to what is sacred. Sacred living reestablishes our connection to the cycles of life. It also helps us regain balance between life’s needs, obligations, and responsibilities. Most importantly, living a sacred existence reminds us about who we are and our birthright to take up space, breathe deeply, and enjoy the fullness of living a spiritually rooted life.

How many crossroads are we given in a lifetime? How many new starts to a day?

Balance & Rhythm: Rooting one’s life spiritually activates two fundamental principles: balance and rhythm. These principles build upon the act of sacred living and guide us toward a harmonious existence. Balance allows equilibrium, cultivating stability and peace. Rhythm is the natural flow of life, aligning us with the cycle of nature and spirituality. We are urgently guided to determine where life imbalances exist and correct them. It is critical to flow with your sacred rhythm so your life will be covered by harmony in 2024.

Sound Judgment & Sacred Freedom: Sound judgement is a crucial aspect of spiritual growth. It requires us to critically evaluate our beliefs and values. In 2024, it’s time to ask yourself: what values am I carrying that have outlived their usefulness? What beliefs no longer align with my evolving spirituality? What am I receiving from the life I’ve created?

Recognizing the signs of misalignment, such as anger, frustration, or exhaustion, is the first step toward a deeper connection with the sacred. These feelings are  signals that something new wants to emerge, and it’s essential to open the door to change willingly. Doing so will breathe fresh air into your life, uplifting your spirit.

Begin Within: We often underestimate the power of our inner dialogue. Negative selftalk is like a member of a toxic inner council whose job is to hinder our progress. It’s time to cut it off and replace it with a new inner council – a council of wisdom that supports your growth and spiritual journey. By nurturing a positive and supportive inner dialogue, you pave the way for a transformative year and a deeper connection with the sacred. 

Create Sacred Space: You can welcome profound impact when creating sacred spaces for daily ritual and ceremony. These spaces serve as sanctuaries for the heart and imagination, places of respite, release, and creation. They enable us to infuse our daily lives with the sacred, making everything worthy of respect and awe. 

This year presents a unique opportunity to rebuild our lives in harmony with the divine. The actions we take, the sacred spaces we create, and the rituals we perform will stand strong. Start where you stand. Invite sacredness into your life by caring for the spaces you inhabit. Make your home a sanctuary of peace and harmony by clearing and cleaning in alignment with nature’s rhythm. Use your intuition when bringing items into your space and placing them, as if building an altar to beauty. In addition, expand this sacred energy to your neighborhood, city, country, and world. The universe will take notice, spreading the news beyond artificial borders. 

2024 urges us to move the sacred from a distant, ethereal realm into our daily lives. Sacred living means recognizing the divinity in all experiences, things seen and unseen. Sacred living means to honor life and the cycles it contains. Be devoted to your spiritual growth in 2024. The restoration of your spiritual strength will provide the anchoring necessary to embrace balance and all life's rhythms. Your spiritual foundation ensures sound judgement during critical times this year. Allowing the sacred prominence brings to you its awe-inspired fulfillment and vitality. May your journey be anointed.
