A bit about me...

Hello - I'm Jessica / I founded Elemental Remedy in 2020, after a year of intense development / Elemental Remedy is a virtual space, where you can discover ritual tools + the transformative power ritual can have on your life / The reason I started to use ritual in my own life, was because I realised, for the most part, I spent a a lot of time not being present / As a sensitive person, I found I had a tendency to want to withdraw + retreat from the overwhelm of life, I had a deep desire to find a place of true sanctuary / It took me a long time to realise I was searching for peace + freedom in all the wrong places / Like many, I took the typical de-stress route - a bottle of wine here, a cigarette or 10 there - only to find myself further from that place of sanctuary I dreamt of / Getting out of reality never really gave me the relief I was looking for...

I spent years 'escaping' my problems in this way, only to realise, that the only way I was going to get out of the cycles of autopilot + numbing out was to find practical + tangible tools to remind me to re-presence / I had to step inside the messiness of my pain + alchemise it, through the exploration + discovery relationship with self / More + more I realise, the answers + peace I was searching for was never outside of me / It was always inside - waiting to be unearthed, nurtured, held + seen / I had to take back the power in order to change my life...

I have used many rituals over the past few years that have helped me to come home to myself + I am still a beginner - I'm still learning to embody, to feel safe, to come back to myself, when my patterns tell me to get out of myself, I use ritual to stay in it / Stay in the moment + find a space where I can rest amongst the chaos / Exploring ritual, I invite you to respond + engage with your life experiences, in new ways / The idea of incorporating ritual in everyday tasks is not new, but it also is unique to each + every person / I wanted to offer you some of the things that have help me on my path to presence...

When you begin to be open to seeing everything you as an opportunity to connect with the present moment - to me, this is where you truly meet yourself - these little moments of presence can transform something you perceive as mundane into an act of ritual and ceremony / As you familarise yourself with how it feels to be truly present, even in micro moments, punctuating the autopilot you most often find yourself in, the present moment becomes an anchor, a teacher, a reference point in the madness...Choosing to create ritual in your life is a commitment to coming back to yourself no matter what, moment after moment, day after day + allowing yourself to experience life as it is, right now, in this very moment, acknowledging that you are alive, you are blessed + you are divine.
