"Sacred Space" is a special place you can retreat to and spend time alone
in quiet meditation or retrospection. Here are a few helpful ideas for
creating an indoor sanctuary.
Difficulty Level: average
Time Required: 25 to 45 minutes
Choose an area within the interior of your home for your "Sacred Space" (a
spare bedroom, a revamped pantry area, a corner space, etc.)
Clear this space of stagnant energies by performing a ritual smudging
(cleanse with smoke from burning sage wand). This should also be repeated
periodically after you begin using your sacred space.
Consider your personal comforts and each of your senses in choosing the
suggested furniture and articles to fill this space.
Comfort: floor cushions, a gentle swaying rocker, or perhaps a stuffed
chaise to stretch out in.
Sounds: wind chimes, water fountains, CDs & player, a hand-carved
Taste: peppermints for mental clarity, calming herbal tea blends, cinnamon
red hot candies to awaken the taste buds.
Smells: scented candles, incense, freshly cut sprig of lavender.
