Creating sacred space~
In meditation this morning the strong directive to discuss "sacred space" immediately arose.
Finding a place in your home that is sacred is important for cultivating a sense of peace, seeking refugee, and allowing yourself to go within either in prayer or meditation. Sacred space creates an environment where we can lower our defenses, breathe deeply, and open to our vulnerability. Often healing takes place as we open to spirit and our own deep inner guidance.
Close your eyes and think of your home environment. Is there a place that you are naturally drawn to? That you find yourself frequently? Perhaps you are drawn to a certain chair by a window, or a corner that is cozy, warm and inviting. Once you have located this spot, you can begin to create your sacred space. Many people create a small alter, or place objects on a shelf or bookcase -- crystals, pictures of loved ones, feathers or stones, incense, and candles are all possibilities.
For me, when I enter and sit in my sacred space, the distractions of the daily world dissolve as I am enveloped in light, loving energy that brings me deeply in touch with myself and Spirit.
