A Powerful Ritual For Clarity & Guidance

If you want more clarity, more divine guidance, and more good energy in your life (who doesn’t?) then this ritual is for you.

Sometimes we get bogged down with our own thoughts, expectations, worries, and anxieties, and we need to clear our minds and create space for our hearts to speak to us. When we allow our heart to express its true desires in a safe, sacred space, we move closer to fulfillment and joy.

I like performing this ritual right after a New Moon because it’s a powerful time for manifesting our desires, but you can do it any time you want. What’s important is that you really show up with all of your energy and a willingness to experience a shift.

[Tweet “The fairy tales were right. I have a magic wand. It’s my mind.”]

1. Clear your space of negative energies.

  • Use dried sage, incense, a spray bottle of purified water, or a flame as a tool to focus your intention.
  • Visualize dark or negative energy dispersing.
  • Use your intuition to discern which nooks & crannies require more focused clearing.
  • As you clear the “darkness” in your physical space, you’re giving yourself power to clear the darkness in your emotional/spiritual space.
  • Tip: I take cold showers regularly to disperse negative energy & focus my mind. They are probably my #1 favorite life hack.

2. Open your space to sacred energies.

  • Use a candle as a tool to ground your intention.
  • Light the flame with the intention of calling in a higher power, or divine forces.
  • Think “welcome” and “thank you” as this divine presence fills the space.
  • Know that as long as the flame is lit, your space is highly charged with positive energy, wisdom, and protection.

3. Make a list of Power Wishes.

  • Now that you have divine guidance around you (I like to think of it as angels whispering in my ear), listen to what your heart is saying. What do you want? Why do you want it? How do you want to feel?
  • List up to 10 feelings you want to feel.
  • As you write each feeling, begin to cultivate the energy of that feeling.
  • In this cleared & sanctified space, you are setting powerful ripples of heart-centered desire into the universe, and they will eventually manifest in form on some level.

4. Close the space.

  • Your clear, focused intentions have been heard.
  • Ask that the divine presence guide you in subtle ways in your everyday life.
  • Say “thanks” and feel gratitude in your heart for the power you have to do this important work.
  • Extinguish the candle.

[Tweet “I’ve cleared my mind and set some powerful intentions. Now I open my heart to receive.”]

The Wellness Wonderland

The beautiful Katie Dalebout invited me on her podcast, Wellness Wonderland Radio, and we covered everything from bedtime rituals to Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

On her blog, she writes:

Today’s WWRadio is probably the one that has inspired me most since I recorded it back in February. I’ve already implemented many of the ideas we discussed into my life and have already seen amazing results. This week I chat with Jordan Bach who is an all around super cool guy that I look up to a ton as a spiritual guru and leader. What Jordan believes is that authenticity is about balance, and going in and out of authenticity with grace and ease. This, and everything he shared was hugely impactful and I know you’ll want to turn up the volume on this week’s episode and brace yourself for being hugely inspired.

Head on over to The Wellness Wonderland for links to the resources we speak about in the podcast.

My New TV Show

IMG_7703

I’m going to be the resident life coach & spiritual advisor on the new “how-to” reality TV series Secret Guide to Fabulous, premiering September 3rd at 11/10c on Logo. You won’t see me on every episode, but I’ll pop in here & there to share practical tips on getting and staying grounded, happy, and purposeful.

Since childhood, I’ve been fascinated by all things psychological and spiritual, and I’ve also had a (dorky) obsession with reading aloud & broadcasting. So working on this show makes me come alive. I could do this sort of thing for the rest of my life.

In our increasingly cynical & polarizing media culture, to be able to use a powerful medium like television to bring some semblance of light and trust and calm into people’s lives is an awesome blessing.

Here I am on the set with one of the hosts, Rob Younkers:

How To Discover Your Life Purpose

Everybody has a calling. Each of us has been sent here for some particular reason. Here are some tips for finding your life purpose (and allowing your life purpose to find you.)

First, think about your responses to these questions for only a moment:

  • What are your own special talents?
  • How do your strengths make you an asset to humanity?
  • Which unique gifts can you bring to your relationships, your workplace, and the world?

By asking ourselves these types of questions, we begin the process of self-discovery, which isn’t always fairies and rainbows. It can be challenging and foggy. Sometimes we suppress our natural gifts because we hold a belief that they are somehow wrong. Sometimes the thing we’re most scared of is the very thing we were sent here to do.

The Angel Whisperer

Kyle Gray sees angels and talks to them. Dead serious. (Pun intended.)

Ever since I heard about Kyle a few years ago, I’ve wanted to chat with him. I was in the shower yesterday and thought to myself, “Jordan, just message him on Facebook and see if he wants to do an interview.” A few minutes later, we were recording this chat. Easy, breezy, beautiful — Angel Whisperer.

There were a couple moments in our conversation when I was really glad I had thought to do this interview. When he said this, I almost cried:

Hungry For Romance

[Tweet “When it comes to romance, I’m hungry for a full meal. I’m no longer accepting crumbs.”]

We’re tired of the relationships that work well for one moment, and then fall apart. We’re tired of chasing after people who treat us like shit. We’re tired of being unsure of what to do about all the shitty relationships we’re in!

You will discover the perfect romance, if that is truly what you want.

When you truly want something, the universe instantly hears your request. The perfect romance is already on its way. In other words, the universe is doing its job. Now it’s time to do yours.

Your job is getting ready for the miracle of a perfect romance.

3 steps to prepare for romance

  1. Clear your eyes so that you can perceive the romance when it begins to show itself.
  2. Soften your heart so that you can bring your most authentic self to the table, and feel comfortable receiving the love you have asked for.
  3. Create space in your life for a new relationship.

If you knew a very important relationship was coming to you in three months time, how would you begin to prepare right this moment?

[Tweet “I am softening my heart and opening my life to romance.”]
