What are Healing Circles?
Healing circles are also known as talking circles. People gather together, for the purpose of sharing and healing. These circles date back to various cultures throughout history, including from the African, Shamanic, Native American, and Aboriginal cultures.
The circle itself is a sacred symbol that represents the goddess, time, unity, and completeness.
Coming together in a circle also brings people together as one.
Circles represent the cycle of life and flow, energy in motion which makes it perfect for healing. Circles are used today in a variety of settings, including therapy and education.
Healing Circles Throughout History
Many cultures throughout the world used Healing Circles as a way of connecting and healing. Spiritual rites of passage, councils, rituals, education, and celebration are a few ways that these circles were used to bring people together for a common cause.
I created the Spiritual Love Circle as a place for women to gather to connect and share for the purpose of love, healing, and transformation.
The Magic in Healing Circles
I went to a local drum circle recently and witnessed the power of the circle along with the beat of the drum. There was such a connectedness among us all. It was beautiful and powerful. I felt included. That sense of connection, along with the act of drumming moved my spirit and brought me together with the others in the circle.
There is power in coming together as one. Especially in Sister Circles, like the ones I have created. The Spiritual Love Circle started as an online Facebook group, and now it’s a local meetup. My vision is to have Spiritual Love Circles all over! For now, I’m focusing on getting the Raleigh chapter established and thriving.
When you enter a healing circle, an intention is set and the space is cleansed energetically. It is a judgment-free zone, filled with love and positivity. You are allowed to speak and share your views and experiences. There is respect within a Healing Circle.
The Value in Healing Circles
The Spiritual Love Circle is a healing circle, even in a digital form. It’s helpful because it gives you a safe place to share what you are going through. Allowing you to be open and heard has so much value. Instead of holding things in, you can express yourself in a space of light and love.
In sharing with other women, you will realize that you are not alone. The love, support, and understanding that you receive is beautiful and it’s also healing.
You may think you are the only one dealing with life issues, from relationships or family drama, money stuff, health, self-esteem, or whatever else you might be dealing with. Connecting with other women, allows you to let your guard down and see that you are not alone in this thing called life.
You will be empowered by the support and loving words of other women and will make connections that blossom into beautiful friendships.
Spiritual Love Circle for Love, Healing, & Transformation
There are a few rules to abide by during a Healing Circle, one person speaks at a time from a place of truth and love and what happens in the circle stays in the circle. That is how it maintains the sacredness. Negativity and rudeness are not tolerated in the circle.
I share upcoming local and virtual events with my tribe in my newsletter, Love Notes. Those are some great ways to stay in touch with events I’m holding.
The Circle is a sacred and powerful symbol. It’s seen throughout nature, life, in statues, and spiritual rituals. The Spiritual Love Circle was created for this purpose, to bring women together to talk, learn, grow, share, and ultimately heal.
I hope to see you in the next Spiritual Love Healing Circle. This will be a virtual one so you can join from the comfort of your home. It’s set for Wednesday, July 11th at 9pm/est.
