Creating a Sacred Space at Home

Resources: 
Contents: 

Creating a sacred space is like giving yourself a loving embrace from the cosmos. It’s a way of both loving ourselves and honouring the divinity that flows through all things. Our personal sacred space can be like a sanctuary to help us realign with higher consciousness, whenever we lose touch. It is somewhere that reminds us of our innate spiritual nature, resounding a vibration that takes us back to our divine beingness. It’s amazing how quickly we can flow back to divinity, if we lovingly tend a space for that very purpose. It can become a highly charged portal to the divine. Can something so divine be so simple? It can indeed. Creating a sacred space isn’t complicated at all.

It's an individual thing

Sacred space creating is a totally individual and unique thing. There is no right or wrong way to do it. It’s all about what inspires your soul. You can make sacred whatever you have available to you. If you live alone, then it’s relatively simple, you have the run of the whole place. If you share your space, then make your bedroom a sacred haven. Even if you share your bedroom, then you can make a corner or a even shelf sacred. The most important thing is that it’s there.

If you are away from home, then bring something with you, to remind you of that sacred energy. Or make a point of connecting with nature every day. Mother Earth emits a deeply healing, divine frequency.

If you share your home, then there is probably even more need to create a space with a special energy that inspires your soul.

Seven tips on how to create your sacred space

  1. Meditate on it: Before you begin, clear your mind, cleanse your energy field through meditation. Try a guided meditation if it helps. I created a meditation called 'Return to Light', which is about letting go of that which no longer serves your journey. It works well to help cleanse your field and encourage a clear mind as a great place to begin. Click on the link opposite to go to meditation.
  2. Now you are clear - Spend time, feeling where your sacred space will be. Dissolve into the space and co-create with the divine.
  3. Allow your soul to guide you - with the energy of divine consciousness that you’d like to infuse into your space.
  4. Resist the temptation to ‘fill it up’ with stuff immediately. It’s important to keep the space clear and only bring things to it, that carry the energy that inspires you. You might have special things already that mean something to you - things you’ve found in nature perhaps during synchronistic moment. You might not have anything, it really doesn’t matter. As things come to you, loving arrange them in your space.
  5. Honour what is right for YOU. Remember it is different for everyone. Some people are drawn to fabric, whilst others are drawn to rocks. Some have a special crystal, a feather, flowers, plants, an image or words printed on a card. Most people use candles at some stage.
  6. Fragrances . Sacred scents can be particularly energising. Different fragrances carry different vibrations. Explore and feel which ones work for you best. Certain herbs and flowers can bring in particularly healing energies. We have a bowl in the middle of our meditation space during workshops, filled with fresh sacred herbs. The emit a frequency, that helps to purify the space whilst people are releasing deep seated energies. Some people use incense, which can be found in different forms. Personally I prefer essential oils. For spiritual cleansing, we use a good quality frankincense a regularly. I have others that are deeply sacred to me.
  7. Meditation cushion. If you meditate then have a cushion that is just for you. You might even like to make your own natural one. Your cushion will hold the energy of higher consciousness if you keep it sacred.

Let it evolve

Don’t get attached to how you create your space either. Let it evolve and grow with you. Things that we need at one stage of the journey, can also healthfully fall away, when we least expect it.

Enjoy your conscious creation and please feel free to share your experiences, either new or old.

Hi Trin

this is a lovely video. I really liked the 'shiva's tears' story. v.powerful. I agree, a space can be made sacred with just the arranging or addition of one or two items, a candle, or even some home made artwork or craft created from a heart centred place. even if you don't bring anything new into the space having the 'intention' to make it special and bringing that into practice is powerful enough.

thanks.

Thanks Trinity. Loved your video. Me and my wife are fortune enough to have a sacred yoga and meditation room since a couple of years ago. It's wonderful to go in there and close the door while the rest of the family is busy. We have one 20 year old son living at home and another 13 year that both take space/attention in their own way. But in the yoga room your are always by yourself. Wonderful!

i really enjoyed it! Smile
also as your playfully bubbly, caring, feminine energy came through too, so grounding!
and so refreshing, we need more of this homely, simple, yet powerful, unquestionable, uncomplicated yet all penetrating, real sacredness in our lives...
im for sure, as many others, there with you on that track
love

I can totally relate you your 'close the door and retreat into your sacred space, whilst the family is busy Martin' Smile I have found that, life with teenagers and children, that this is absolutely essential for me. I felt such an uplifting energy from reading your short post.

Thank you also Reka and Ben. Ahhhh - beautiful words.

Thanks for the guidance ... just what I need to help make a sacred space in a shared home / room as I have been struggling a little to find somewhere to meditate recently. I have tried having a few crystals by the bed but this table invariably gets cluttered and hasn't been blessed. While a corner would be ideal and constantly visible, I also like the box suggestion as it is portable and I can never be sure which room will be available to me when I want to meditate or do some soul motion. As we make space for baby's arrival in a couple of months, this too can be a priority to help keep me in touch with myself over the busy time that awaits.
With gratitude,
Jude

Hi Jude,
It sounds like your own sacred space would really help you at this time, and especially with a new little one on the way.
It feels as if you are with us in spirit during the Transfiguration course next week - you feel like a part of it.
with Love
Trinity

That's heart warming to hear Trinity. I've not felt 'the pull' to join you physically but will certainly be conscious of my spiritual practice during that time. I am concentrating on birth and baby preparations as you can imagine!

I have no home, so all I have is a space within Smile

And I must say, that no home and no space at home can compare to this feeling. Since I am homeless, I feel more home than ever! Funny paradox Biggrin

Ah, yes, it probably is best that you tune in, in spirit, especially with you being so close to birthing.

Great Yulia.

I have remembered about this thing that I learned from Lesley, and later found another way of own way.

Lesley was going around in circles and blowing to clear the space during one of the facilitators courses.

I immediately felt the resonance and use it since then.
Another thing that helps me is to go around and just use hands, like waving them around.

This is how I create home wherever I go, if I feel like I need to adjust the space Smile

Thank you Trinity, loved the video. We are renting at the moment and I did a space clearing with resins and blessings when we moved in to create a safe, clear space in the whole house. I'm sensitive to others energies, as you and many of us here are, which worked well. I don't have a sacred space, just lots of crystals near when I meditate Smile But we are moving soon to a new house and you really inspired me to start creating and collecting things I'm guided to use for my new sacred space! Thank you x

How interesting...

I had some problem with my computer and didn't see there was a video in the morning. I later fixed it...

And was surprised with the "beautiful video" comment. I've now watched it!
Triiiin, such wonderful energy <3

In case some missed it, we've recently introduced a Meditation Downloads facility on the website to work with your sacred space. You can still access them and play them freely online (Guided Meditations Online), but you may well want to get away from the wifi and internet. So here's the link to download to your MP3 player or other device...

Openhand Meditation Downloads

Enjoy!
