Creating a sacred space

sacred space12

What started as a teeny tiny altar has turned into an entire section of my house. My office is not an office as much as it is a sacred space for my soul to express herself. Filled with everything that is conducive to allowing my heart to open and my spirit to step forward.

When I was working in the corporate world I could feel how much my soul yearned for beauty, space and sacred aloneness. It is in this beauty, space and aloneness that I feel most part of life. ‘Alone’ being the window to the experience of ‘All one’. It is in this sacred aloneness that my soul is nourished and my spirit replenished.

We cannot give what we do not have. When we are nourished, our well is filled. When our well is filled we are able to share it with the world around us. What nourishes you? What nourishes your soul more than anything else?

Creating a sacred space is such a simple yet powerful act. A place devoted to the part of you that whispers, calls and yearns. A space that acts as an invitation to the universe to support you. It can be as small as a window ledge or as big as a whole room.

It can be as simple as one candle or flower, or an entire altar devoted to the subtle realms. It can by physical or a virtual like a Pinterest board. It can be permanent or carried with you. It can be extravagant or understated.
