My Sacred Space

{{This is a Truthday Tuesday FULL VIDEO Click here}}

What is...

Sacred Space?

To me, sacred space is space that is allotted for ME. It is space that I deem as important for one reason or another. It can be space I do energy work in, where I meditate, or find respite from the world.
Sacred Space holds accumulated spiritual energy. This is energy that has built up over time. This energy has the purpose of purifying, centering, and reinvigorating my spiritual aura.

Examples of Sacred Spaces in society are:

  • Churches, or temples of worship
  • Historical Monuments
  • Indigenous areas/Holy Grounds
  • The Forests of the Earth
  • Some even say the BATHROOM/ SHOWER
The bottom line is that Sacred Space is treated a certain way, with great respect and reverence.

What are the spaces I deem Sacred?

I have space in my apartment that I have designated as Sacred, and treat in a certain way. I don't want these spaces cluttered, made dirty, or contaminated with other energies.
This is a space for rest and recuperation. This is where I do my dreaming, my traveling to the Astral Realms. This is where I lay my body down to recharge for the coming of a NEW DAY.
I need the energy of my bed to be pure.
While I sleep, I am absorbing new energies, and giving off old energies. I can't have my bed cluttered with Cell Phone Waves or old crumbs of food.
  • for Dirty Laundry
  • A place to drop off your coat (Hang it on a hook please)
  • for dumping the contents of my book bag or purse
  • for Eating (exception: Illness)
  • For shoes, or other outside wear.
  • drop off for other random Junk
My bed is a space I hold sacred in order to recharge.

This is similar to my bed.
There is a book called "Clear Your Clutter with Feng Shui" by Karen Kingston
It speaks about clearing emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual clutter.
This reminded me of the phrase "Inner reflects Outer" meaning, that your outer world can become an expression of your inner world. Maybe some of you will resonate with the phrase
Cleanliness is next to Godliness
For those that know about Tarot, and other Occult things

I took this to mean a way of making sacred space; freeing up the space in your mind & soul to allow the Divine  to come in and work it's Magic.
Sometimes a cluttered mind can distract us from enjoying life

A study by Princeton University found "that physical clutter in your surroundings competes for your attention, resulting in decreased performance and increased stress" (Web source).

Clutter can effect the energy flow in the room. My room is my sanctuary, a place where I can feel safe. If it's cluttered and not organized, I FEEL DISORIENTED.
I get stressed, and I cannot get anything done until my room is back to it's clean and organized state. 

I have what I call an 'Organized mess'. 
Everything has a place, and I put everything back in it's place when I am done with it.
Albert Einstein makes a great point. Remember, there is a balance to life.
If I am stressed my room begins to reflect my stressed state. Once I put everything back into order, I can feel the energy flowing more freely, and I feel my mind relaxing. Then, I am at peace.
#3 My Crystal Alter
This is a place for all of my crystals. Yes, I own special shiny rocks that I believe emit energies. I believe these energies can impact my daily living, and the space in which I live.
The only things that are allowed on my alter are the crystals, other sacred tokens, and things being charged with the energies.
  • No random papers, or homework, or mail
  • No uninvited touching of crystals
  • No disturbing of the formations I put them in
Please, ask before you touch my crystals.

#4 My Body
My Body is a Temple. I believe this is where my soul resides, where SPIRIT comes to rest. I believe this is the vessel through which I allow the Divine to shine. 
  • It is my Ultimate Tool, and my best Weapon
It is an amalgamation of cells, making it a living organism which I must take care of. I must keep it Healthy so that I can do the Work I have come to Earth to do. 
This means:
  • I make choices that are Life-oriented
    • Exercise and stretch my body
  • I watch what I ingest. 
    • I eat a plant-based diet
    • I drink lots of water
      • I stay away from Soda Pop, sugary drinks, and limit my intake of coffee
        • I monitor when these things get out of balance, and seek to correct it.
  • I express LOVE for my body
I AM A GODDESS, and I am not afraid to show it. My body is the living vessel that expresses my divine nature. I take care of it, and nurture it. If I abuse it, then I abuse my own sacred right. This a sacred space that is the most important, because with out my body, I would not exist in this dimension.

Sacred Space is important because I give it importance, and meaning. I want my life to have meaning, and I define the spaces appropriately. I believe I can create my own reality. In order to do that I need a foundation upon which to build that is stable.
My bed is my Nest, my place of rest and recuperation.
My Room is my sanctuary, my place of self work.
My Crystal alter is how I cultivate and signify my spirituality.
My Body is how I go out into the world and create my miracles.
Without these four corner stones, the mission which I am building would crumble.
Stay Healthy, Stay Light, and Don't Give Up the Fight!
