All live together on my altar, along with some other treasures that provide a visual pep talk whenever I see it. Once you find + clear a space for your altar gather objects that are meaningful and uplifting and arrange them beautifully.
Here are some options:
fresh flowers . a beeswax candle . incense . a picture of your grandma . your vision board . a dream catcher . buddha . crystals . mala beads . a poem . plants . figurines of saints, gods, or goddesses . a sacred shell . a beautiful quote . a hot pink feather… whatever floats your boat.
I recently cleared off books to make space for my altar. I especially love the bursts of hot pink. They remind me to tap into my 7 year old self whenever I am feeling too serious.
