Let it Evolve

Posted | 0 comments

My altar is always changing even though I crave to get it ‘right’, so I can check it off the list.

My Shiva statue moves to greet me at the door.  My succulent found a sunnier spot. My rose petals eventually dried out.  I find new crystals to add.  I arrange my pictures in a new way.  And one day I may just start over.

It’s evolving…and so am I.

So as you build your little altar – let your treasures ebb and flow.  Let it represent the space you carve out for yourself.

A Visual Pep Talk

Posted | 0 comments

Sometimes I need a little extra encouragement when life feels harder, heavier, and lonelier than I’d like it to feel. On those days I am extra grateful for my altar: a collection of meaningful objects, charged with light and positivity, arranged beautifully and creating a sweet space for me.

 

When I sit in front of it, or just glance over at it, it is like I am receiving a visual pep talk. It’s as if my statues, family pictures, hot pink lotus candle, and inspiring quotes are all silently cheering me on.

 

I visit this space first thing in the morning to meditate and get grounded for the day. It feels so good to have a little space available to connect with myself. Even if you aren’t in to the whole meditation thing, a place just for you that you walk by or pause next to that evokes peace and ease will do your soul lots of good.

 

You can make an altar anywhere. There is always room where a few of your treasured objects can live together. Take a look around your home and see if there is a windowsill, a shelf, a dresser, on your desk, or a corner on the floor calling out to be something more.

 

Don’t wait! Go ahead and…
