New Year Eve Ritual + 11 days of intention setting for 2019

Cin Kats

This date of the year is very powerful and it’s important to make the most of it. Let’s take a moment to reflect on this year’s journey and what comes next for 2019.

The last day of the year has a lot of meaning in my life. As most of you know, my dear mother Diana has taught me a lot about living life with intention. One of the rituals we used to practice together takes place on the last day of the year, and today December 31st of 2018, I am honored to share it with you and ready to pass on her valuable teachings.

Feel free to follow this simple step-by-step guide, or modify it as you please. The best rituals come from the heart.

  • Set-up your sacred space: cleanse, purify and prep your space before your intentional practice. Have everything you need such as a journal, pen, candles, etc., handy. I personally love smudging some sage and lighting a candle.

  • Ground yourself: close your eyes, take a couple of deep breaths, connect with yourself and bring out a sense of gratitude for this moment and your 2018.

  • Journal: open up, let your feelings out. Imagine with confidence that what you write WILL in fact happen. Take a moment to transfer on the paper what you intend for this new year. Be specific! My mom and I used to write about each area of our lives (love, career, finances, relationships, self-care, leisure, etc).

  • Visualize: after journaling, I invite you to do a closed-eyes visualization of what you wrote actually coming to life. Feel it in your body, feel the excitement building up. Personally, I feel it in my chest, followed by happy and bright energy flowing through my body.

Thank you for another wonderful year together! Follow along and join us daily for the next 11 days of intention setting for 2019.

Much love + light, Cin.

The power of Ritual

Cin Kats

What is a ritual? One of the definitions that I resonate with: a practice made sacred through mindful intention.

Adding a simple ritual to our day is continuously and powerfully transformative. 

Rituals also set an intention, and over here at Lucin we LOVE setting intentions. Taking a few minutes each day to practice a ritual can enhance the power of intention setting, reinforce your goals, bring forth calmness, focus, and balance. Also, taking some time to connect with yourself is such a wonderful act of self-love! 

Strengthening your intentional practice with a ritual can support you to be more aligned and in-tuned with what you want to create in your life and how to achieve it.

We believe rituals are powerful tools that help us create the best possible life for ourselves. Over the past months, we worked on a very special candle we are introducing today! RITUAL, a sacred blend created to elevate your intention setting practice.
Notes of Palo Santo essential oil, White Birch, and a touch of Sweetgrass will purify, cleanse and attract good spirits. Made purposefully to be used before your intentional practice.

Interested to learn about our own rituals? Find below my go-to ritual for the morning. Feel free to practice it, follow every step, or modify it as you please! The best rituals come from the heart. Just like our candles!

With love + light,

Lucin’s Ritual for Intentional Practice

  • Set-up your sacred space: cleanse, purify and prep your space before your intentional practice. Have everything you need like a journal, pen, candles, etc., handy. I personally love smudging some sage and lighting the Ritual candle with an intention I would like to enhance.

  • Ground yourself: close your eyes, take a couple of deep breaths, connect with yourself and bring out a sense of gratitude for this moment. 

  • Set the intention: this will be what your mind focuses on. Ask within yourself: what would I like to manifest in my life? or, what am I calling forth right now?   

  • Journal: open up, let your feelings out. Take a moment to transfer on the paper what comes up for you, your feelings, or just writing a line with your intention. 

  • Honor the ritual: the more personal you make it, and the more consistently you use it, the more powerful it can be.

Last month, we had the honored to be part of the @sunkissedbox pop-up event in one of my favorite cities in the world, Tokyo, Japan!

The incredible founders, Naomi and Jeff, transmit their love for our sunny state and the magic that is living by the ocean, by hand-selecting products created with love in California. 

Sun-Kissed Box brought the California lifestyle and good vibes across the Pacific with a beautiful selection of products made locally. Our hand-poured candles were a great addition to the event, bringing a little bit of Venice Beach to Shibuya Hikarie.

Last but not least, the Tokyo Walker magazine dedicated a page to Naomi and Jeff's participation at the event and their subscription box. Our Abundance candle, the pop-up's best seller, was featured in the May edition of the magazine! 

 

It was truly an honor to spread our intentions in a different country with such a great partnership!

Excited to keep spreading light and good intentions all over the globe!

Full Hunter's Moon in Aries

October is a very special time to find a quiet place to observe and celebrate the cycles of the moon. As we see the arrival of the autumnal equinox, shorter days, and crisp cold air, so do we see one of the most beautiful moons of the year: the Hunter’s Moon.

The Full Moon candle is about shedding light on the darkness. A potent time to release and let go, which aligns perfectly with the energy of the Hunter’s Moon in Aries.

Like the rising tides we will see before the Hunter’s Moon on October 5th, the truth is likely to come to the surface during this moon. Use this time to focus on what clarity this moon can bring. What role does fate play in your life? Where is free will being utilized most?

“Aries energy is about trusting yourself, finding your independence and marching forward in spite of it all in the direction that you know is right. It is about developing a greater sense of self and knowing who you truly are.” - consciousreminder

Aries is a sign of honesty, optimism, and determination. And while Aries can be impatient and head-headed, taking the lead and seeing the best in the world can go a long way.  May October be a time to seek truth in your own life and take hold of the power you have to make changes as the season changes around you.

 

With love + light,

Cin

Intentions in Motion - New Moon in Virgo

Cin Kats

When we work with the moon, we align our energy with the Universe’s energy, it’s cycles and rhythms. The New Moon phase symbolizes new beginnings, a potent time to start fresh with a new cycle. Therefore, it is the perfect time to for planning and seeding your intentions.

I have been working with the energy of the Moon for the past couple of years. My girlfriends and I often gather together for this powerful time to share our intentions and new goals. We light candles as we visualize our intentions of what we wish to create.

“This New Moon [in Virgo] is a time to focus on and commit to greater healing, wholeness, being of service and showing up to do our inner and outer work.

Virgo is a sign of integrity and discernment…yes virgo can be perfectionist, critical and judgmental- but healthy Virgo is about discerning and clear in our vision and perception of ourselves, others and the world around us.

This New Moon is a call to up level our game of healing, wholeness, integration and integrity!” -  DIVINE HARMONY

“Harness the power of this New Moon by taking the opportunity to refresh your habits and overhaul the operating system of your life.

Virgo energy can help you set new intentions around how you live your daily life. Sometimes focusing on Virgo topics means focusing on the most mundane things. How’s your digestion? How’s your overall health?

Avoid the urge to overthink and instead focus on the habits you want to change. Make a detailed plan.” -  Sandra Sitron

 

May we embrace the changes with gentlelness, focus on healing and we will manifest our intentions. 

With love + light,

Cin
