Creating your Sacred Space is something that benefits you on many levels. It is creating a sanctuary, a space to find peace and oneness. The Sacred Space is about the allowing, honoring the sacredness of you, taking the time to attune and align yourself with the God self, to be in that union of Harmony and Grace. It’s a place where you can find healing and guidance. This is a place where you can go to find comfort and love. It is a place of prayer. It is a place of just Being.
Whatever your beliefs are, honor them, be true to them, embrace them. But as you do that, remember to honor yourself by creating and taking the time for yourself to embrace your beliefs actively.
So, often you may find yourself making the time for others and their needs, which is a beautiful and considerate thing to do. But what I am asking you to think about is “do you take the time for you?” If you feel lost, overwhelmed, or just need to be in a safe place, create your Sacred Space.
Find a special place that you feel drawn to or connected to in some way. This may be in a certain room of your home, or in a special corner or nook area that might even be off the kitchen. It could be somewhere in your own backyard. What is important about this area is that you are drawn to it. Pay attention to your inner guidance and feeling towards it.
The next thing to do is to allow yourself to be inspired by this area. Be creative with it, clean/cleanse it, smudge it, as this will dissipate any old or stagnate energies in the area. Have a place where you can sit comfortably, a chair, pillow, whatever works for you. You might also choose to have a small table where you can place a candle, incense, books, crystals, statuary, and writing utensils’ if you like. You may choose certain symbols or pictures to have hanging on the wall. You might enjoy having an inspirational book or two on your table. Have soft meditative lighting and music. These are just ideas that you might consider or be drawn to in creating your Sacred Space. Whatever you choose to make sure that it’s inspiring to YOU!
After you have created your Sacred Space, take the time to be within this Space and Honor the Sacred Self. Leave distractions and interruptions behind. This is for you.
As early as my young childhood I remember always being curious about the supernatural, paranormal, and mysticism in general. I seemed to be drawn with curiosity about the unseen, or what one would term as the occult.
