Virtual Circle Monday | Finding Sanctuary

Welcome to Virtual Circle Monday. Each Monday I’ll post an exercise – sourcing inspiration from a variety of sources – to get your thinking about your spiritual path.

Simply blog your answer to the question below and then add a direct link to your post in the comments, and I’ll put a link to your blog on this post. Or, leave a message in the comments section. If your answer is very personal, and you don’t wish to share with the group, simple write your answer in your journal.

This week, we’re drawing inspiration from Isha Lerner’s Triple Goddess Tarot.

    Silence is the Mother of Truth.
    Benjamin Disraeli

Soul Message: When each day is sacred; when each hour is sacred; when each instant is sacred; earth and you; -space and you; bearing and sacred through time; you’ll reach the fields of light. -Guillevic

Alchemy and Transformation: The High Priestess is pictured in The Triple Goddess Tarot as the Wise Goddess who is pure in spirit. She wears a ceremonial robe representing spiritual power beyond Her personal identity. Initiation into Sanctuary requires that you engage with the watery depths of the dark waters of the unconscious. Out of the unconscious, the conscious world is born.

Awakening to the Archetype – The Priestess: The Priestess becomes reactivated when one chooses to follow the path of inner teachings and opens mysteries of the Sanctuary within. Pilgrimages to Her holy sanctuaries will help you reconnect with the spiritual resources of the Priestess. Listen with a cosmic ear. See the world with your eyes closed. Meditation, prayer, chanting, or any form of stillness will bring you into union with higher aspects of your own being, in body, soul, and spirit, as well as into a conscious relationship with the profundity of daily life.

Everyday Encounters: The Priestess archetype is available to us at all times. When an important decision needs to be made, it is the divine wisdom within that helps us align to right action. It is the way we walk our life each day that matters most. Our everyday life is sacred. As much as possible, introduce a mood of inner quiet into daily life, looking beyond impressions, feelings, and impulses of external reality to cultivate your own higher potentials.

How do you introduce a mood of inner-quiet into your daily life?



  1. my daily stilllness ritual starts with a visualisation and then i practice yoga for about 40mins, followed by pranayama and then a meditation practice that lasts anywhere from 15-45mins.

    I had always practiced at least one of the above a couple of times a week, but i made a commitment this month to do it all, everyday and already in sucha short time i am reaping real benefits on all planes of my being.

    • Thanks Michelle – glad to hear its going well! Let me know if you received the package.


  2. I am not always consistent with any sort of daily practice but with the healing modality I am learning I have received various rites and I have to “feed” those seeds. So, I have made this a daily ritual for me and have incorporated a short period of meditation into it so that has become my daily practice. It really has become a wonderful sacred time in the morning when all is quiet and I can really sense that presence of Spirit with me.
