What does Stay Sacred mean to me? A heartfelt answer by Kristina Shands

Dearest Soul Sister,

With so much love I share with you a little love note written by my dear sister, Kristina. Kristina has witnessed my growth, my despair, my transitions, for a number of years. She has been a sister who saw a vision of where I was going and knew my essence crystal clear before I did. It is an honor to have her share her thoughts about the SACRED.

With gratitude,

What does Stay Sacred mean to me?

It’s a funny question because I don’t know what it means, but I know how it feels.

Until I met Sora and became a member of her team, I wasn’t sure sacred, magic, and rituals even had a place in business (and forget about understanding what it means to “hold space”).

Quick intro...My name is Kristina Shands, a dear sister of Sora’s and a recent convert to the power of circle and incorporating sacred practices in my work.

When I was asked by Sora to share how I stay sacred, I almost said no. Why? Because I couldn’t describe how it works or what it means or how to help anyone else get to that place. I could only describe how it feels when I am in circle with my business and treat it as a sacred gift.

It feels effortless, aligned, divine. It feels like I am in concert with God (Great Spirit, Source, Divine, Goddess, Universe), not knowing exactly what note is next but trusting that my fingers will know what key to play. It feels peaceful and gentle and electric.

I wish I could say I wake up feeling this way and wistfully go through my day with ease. In reality, many days are spent in complete resistance - refusing to surrender to what I know is my higher purpose.

Why would I do that?

Maybe because I entered my entrepreneurial journey as an online marketer where everything was supposed to be done a specific formulaic way, where you were to “fake it until you make it,” and where the only goal is 6-figure months.

What I have come to learn, from working with amazing women like Sora, is that when I treat my business as an extension of my heart, when I welcome a higher power into every decision, when I listen to the whispers of my soul and the chatter of my angels, I can’t go wrong.

For me to Stay Sacred means I continuously ask the Universe, “What do you want me to do next?” and surrender more and trust deeper than ever before.

I am blessed to see it modeled in Sora - how she approaches her gift, her service, her team, her business. And I am excited to learn from the other Sacred Circle Guest Sisters how they create more abundance, beauty, and grace in their businesses and lives.

Staying Sacred is essential for me to continue my work of helping women find their voice and confidence in business so they can be more visible, reach more people, have a bigger impact, and create real change in the world.

I invite you to join Sora, me, and 30+ awakened entrepreneurs for Stay Sacred: a 21-day practice. It will be a life-changing, business-altering, heart-inspiring experience filled with laughs, love, sisterhood, and the divine feminine.


With love,
