Having a sacred space in our home is important and necessary on our spiritual journey.
Here are a few tips to create sacred space at home:
Pick a Spot
You don’t need an entire room dedicated to your sacred space. Perhaps it’s a corner in your bedroom where you have a comfortable chair, end table, and shelf to put some items that you love on. Rooms that are out of the “busy” area of your home are best. Rooms that have a door with a lock on them to keep pests out are even better.
What would you like to use this spot for? Journaling? Drinking coffee/wine? Meditating? Reading? Pick your favorite 2 and then create the physical space to best accommodate your needs.
Bring Outdoors In
When you tell people to close their eyes and go somewhere peaceful, they almost always visualize being outside. Include outdoor elements in your sacred space such as plants, water fountains, candles, salt lamps, crystals, or wind chimes to bring the outdoors in.
Play in to your Senses
Think of your 5 senses and what items tend to calm them. Try incorporating soft music to hear, a soft pillow to touch, a favorite essential oil or candle to smell, a chocolate treat to taste, and a beautiful view or picture nearby to view. Burning sage and soft music always put me into sacred space!
Polish off with Sacred Accessories
Accessorize this space with an items that you love or that make you feel happy with you look at them.
Here are some ideas:
- Photo of a loved one (living or passed)
- Photo of a religious figure or saint that you feel connected to
- Rosary or prayer book
- Journal and pens
- Affirmation or guidance cards
- Your favorite crystals
- Any special gifts or notes that you’ve received to remind you of how special you are
Inform family members that this space is sacred. Ask them to respect your time and items in the space. It’s difficult with young children at first, but they’ll get the hang of it after a while. I found it easiest to set an audible time and say that you can’t be disturbed until the timer goes off.
