“Your sacred space is where you can find yourself over and over again.” – Joseph Campbell
I love altars. They are grounding and magical. I sit in front of mine every morning and the physical arrangement helps me to mindfully arrange my internal space. I did a series on altars in the spring that began with this post – but I wanted to revisit, because, well… I love altars.
So first thing is first… Locate a space. Begin by finding a little are that will work for you now. You can always change your mind, and you can create many in your office and home.
Here are some ideas:
- Your night table
- A corner on the floor
- A windowsill
- A little table
- A shelf (or part of one)
- A corner of your desk
- On your mantle
- On top of your dresser
- Hanging from the ceiling or wall
- A 2 dimensional one on your computer, ipad, smart phone case…
- In a box
- In your car
- On a kitchen counter
- Inside a drawer
You can meditate, journal, feel supported and guided, or remind yourself to be present in front of your altar. The options are endless, so do what feels right and commit to one.
Let me know where you decide to clear some space and stay tuned for some ideas of what you can lovingly arrange on them. And here is a pintrest board you can use to guide you towards locating your very own space.
