“You must have a room or certain hour of the day, where you do not know what was in the morning paper..a place where you can simply experience and bring forth what you are, and what you might be.” -Joseph Campbell
First of all, most people may wonder, “What is a Sacred Space?”
I think the answer to this question has many answers but I will be telling you what it is to me and how it has been such a huge part of my journey back “home”, to me and my higher self.
I first had to define the word “Sacred” which lead me to ask myself the following questions to find my answer:
Who am I?
What is my deepest intention?
The question, “Who Am I?” used to give me anxiety because I felt as though my answers were so surfaced. I am a Mom, I am a Daughter, I am an Aries, I am an Alcoholic, I have depression and those answers felt so empty.
When I started my meditation practice my answers began to change and I now know I am a spiritual seeker, a survivor of depression, a healer, a coach, an empath, an innocent child of God, a student of A Course in Miracles and so much more.
My deepest intention has been inside of me since as far back as I can remember.
I used to tell my family when I was a little girl that I wanted to save the world and I wanted everyone to be happy, to be kind to one another, to get along, to be conflict-free and coexist in harmony. When life showed me a very different picture, I had to walk down a dark path to the deepest depths of my soul to heal the pains and the disappointments and by doing that I am now seeing that my true soul intention is to help people back to the light. Give others hope.
My Sacred Space is a place that started with a beautiful wooden box, a candle, some essential oil and my intention journal. I placed it in the corner of my bedroom and 3 years later I have added more things that speak to my heart, pictures of the Virgin Mary, beautiful tapestries, a picture of my boys the day they were born, Ganesh to fight off my obstacles, my crystals, my singing bowl and my Angel cards. Any item I place in my Sacred Space speaks to me and brings me a sense of peace.
In my next blog I will be talking about my daily ritual which has enhanced my journey and made me excited to meditate and be still.
Love and Light
