Creating your Sacred Space
A sacred space is a special area in your home, garden or backyard that you can go to any moment to vent out the stress and tune yourself into peace. It is a space of just pure being. A place where you can to reflect, read, write and unwind… a place just for you.
Majority of the people automatically associate a sacred space with a religion or with religious practice, but it doesn’t necessarily always have to be the case. While it actually helps you to deepen their spirituality with the help of prayer and meditation; it can simply be a place where we keep all the things, we love to spend time with. Regardless of what the room is being used for, a sacred space is a place for you to just be you.
The most important thing is that it feels like it is your own and that it’s quiet, comforting, relaxing and calming. If you can sit close to the ground, even better because it will keep you grounded. Also, you can keep out all the negative energies by following these three basic rules:
1. Clearing the Area – It is always helpful when you clear the space from clutter, visual distractions, noise pollution and anything that aims to fill it with negative energy.
2. Understanding Your Intention – Your sacred space is a place just for you where you would be meditating, praying or just reflect or contemplate your day, write, daydream, etc… Make sure that you don’t answer emails or calls, spend time surfing the internet, or watch TV in your sacred space.
3. Using Aromatics – When you use aromatherapy, essential oils and incense to clear out any negative energy and bring about a positive mental state, centre your mind and let go of all the distractions.
