Sacred Space: A personal sanctuary

You deserve something special, dedicated to YOU and your self-care! Having a sacred space not only transforms part of your environment into a sanctuary for you, but it gives you a place to visit every day, where you can turn off the noise of the World, and focus inward, on YOU, and what you need.

Simply put, Sacred Space is time and space (an area) that you have intentionally set aside to experience a re-connection with yourself, your Divination, and your Spirit, which usually escapes us in this fast-paced everyday life we live. The object of this is to maintain a healthy and balanced (aligned) connection with your body, your mind, your intuition, your soul (Higher Self / Spirit / Inner Compass), and your emotions.

Now, a sacred space doesn’t have to be crazy! I started with just an incense burner and a chunk of rose quartz on my entrance table. I made a point of burning a stick of incense every day, quietly watching the smoke rise and feeling my stresses melt away, even if it was only for those 10 minutes.

But those 10 minutes were a symbol of the importance of taking the time I need daily to feed my spirit and acknowledge my self-worth – little did I know at the time about how significant those incense sticks would become later!

Your sacred space can be as simple as a chair in a quiet corner of the house. It could be a notebook or journal if you are someone who likes to document your thoughts, goals, healing progress, and channel your thoughts through writing.

It could be the top of a dresser where you display different house plants and perhaps a few special things from nature that make you feel grounded and at peace. It could even be a small sewing box that you keep your collection of healing crystals in. It could be a drawer in your desk that is dedicated to your essential oils or personal development books. It could even be the bath, or your bed…
The key to this is to dedicate some type of quiet space, object(s) or area (away from your computer, phone and the TV), solely to your emotional and spiritual wellness and self-healing.

Creating a sacred space, also known as an alter, gives you a safe, loving, non-judgmental space where you can find your center, connect to your Spirit (or Higher Self), and release the stress, tension and negative energy that you have accumulated throughout the day.

I often take these moments to say thank you to the people in my life, my guides and spirit family, nature and the Universe for its love and support.

By visiting this area daily, you are acknowledging that your wellness is worth your time, which is a necessary part of having a successful self-healing practice. Over time, your sacred spaces will change, and morph with your practice.
