We are all deserving of a space, that is designated for our self healing and spiritual practice. Limitations and challenges can make establishing these spaces difficult, but with a little creativity and resourcefulness, we can create the perfect sacred space to meet our individual needs. Here are a few essentials to get you started!
Establish Your Personal Altar
A table of any size (an IKEA end table will do just fine) is necessary for displaying items close to your heart. Whatever your spiritual practices, allow yourself a special surface to hold symbolic items such as: statues, crystals, candles, tokens, flowers, etc. Arrange and dress it however you wish, using meaningful fabrics and elements that may change with the lunar cycle, religious holidays, the season or your mood. In my personal practice, I create an intuitive crystal grid with a corresponding candle for every new moon. The chosen crystals and handmade candle support my desired intention that I wish to manifest for the full moon.
If space allows, add some simple shelving to hold additional items to revisit including books, a journal, plants, etc. Add a simple yoga mat and/or floor cushion for comfortable seating for meditation. Individualism is key here. What is meaningful to you is all that matters, so include whatever tools assist you in connecting with your higher self.
