Creating sacred space for ourselves in our homes helps us to feel more calm and centered in our bodies, and is a great way to enhance our meditation practice and soul work. Sacred inner space is the tranquil atmosphere we create for the psyche — where we can go even deeper in our meditation and even further in our soul work.
Creating sacred space in your home is a beautiful and effective way to make the most of the time you dedicate to nurturing your spirit. Not only does this create a peaceful atmosphere of clear and calming energy, but whether you are meditating, journaling, journeying, doing energy work or working with your spirit guides, the ritual itself of devoting purposeful you time in your sacred space helps you focus and strengthen your intentions.
Animal spirits come to us with great wisdom to share, to help us heal and to help us grow. They act as our teachers, our guides, our allies, our challengers and our protectors. They encourage us to find balance and harmony, they bring to us courage and strength, they show us how to adapt, how to stand our ground, and they reflect to us the great wisdom inherent in ourselves already.
Like fresh snow that covers the ground in pure white, Winter is our blank slate. We enter this phase after moving through a period of release or loss; Perhaps we have decided to end a friendship or relationship, quit a job, or change careers altogether. Perhaps we have lost a loved one, or our home. It could be leaving a city — or a country even — and moving somewhere new. Whatever the case, we have let go of something familiar and find ourselves in a realm of unfamiliar, and in this new space we are faced with the task of redefining and redesigning who we are and how we want to express ourselves.
