Thanking Our Way Through a Script

A Heart-led Celebrant with a high Emotional Quotient will naturally (or through learning) think and feel their way through a ceremonial script. Because our work is so far removed from ‘reading’ the words on a page or living in an egoic-driven performance mode, the way we embody the ensouling style of our work lends itself to another way of bringing heart to this role.



Although the pauses and stops in our script may be short and/or subtle, imagine how you can elevate the ceremony in its entirety by offering a conscious moment of gratitude in each or some of those spaces? This is something from the heart, and experienced within rather than verbally. What might you be grateful for? All manner of things:

  • the weather
  • the venue
  • the client
  • the peace
  • the audience
  • being in the right place at the right time
  • harmony
  • for being a conduit (love, kindness, compassion, humour, etc.)
  • and so on


If your vibrational frequency is resonating with grace and gratitude this naturally permeates any ceremonial space and raises the energy of everyone present. Consider trying this next time you officiate a ceremony.
