By: V Capaldi I must admit that I find myself often getting mad at me when I realize how many times I take things I do for granted. I work so hard to share my life while being conscious and yet I still am not perfect. #damnit
One of the things I have somehow always had even as a young child was the awareness and ability to create and have a sacred space. As a kid I decorated my bedroom each month making it my personal retreat even though I shared the room with my sister. It was very clear when you entered the room where the sacred space was.
My sacred space was were "I" lived whenever I was not outside playing with friends.
My childhood home was dysfunctional to say the least. Filled with addiction, violence and mental disorders gone wild.
"Your sacred space is where you can find yourself over and over again."
This year for the 1st time I realized how for so many the idea of sacred space is a new concept. #doubledamnit
As with most of my tips and tricks in the infamous "Bag of Tricks" I recommend a 100% no rules allowed policy when defining a sacred space. If you read my blogs you will notice a common theme and that is you get to set the rules on how you interpret your life. Who am I to say what constitutes your sacred space? I can however give you insight into how to get started to begin creating a sacred space:
How to Create a Sacred Space in 3 Easy Steps
1. Ask the question: As in most new concepts I chose the outcome driven approach. Looking 1st to my desired outcome and working back.
- Is it a place?
- In your mind's eye?
- How is it accessible?
What was the 1st thing that you thought of when you heard sacred space? Often answering this is a great starting point.
2. Try it on: Once you have identified a thought or two concerning your sacred space try that shit on, take it for a test run, whatever it is get going. I happen to be someone who has moved a lot counting over 19 times in my 52+ years. Each time within a month of moving I have progressed to this step.
An example would be: when I moved from living on the beach to near the beach I knew my daily access to "my sacred space" was going to be in trouble. It took me a few weeks of trying new versions of 'going to the beach' to finally hit a system that supported finding my space.
3. Visit often: Like a new pair of shoes I often try them out before the 1st day of a good wear I recommend you check your shit out. I personally wear a new pair of shoes for 'short' outings or around the house for a minute before a full day. Breaking them in for me always a learned necessary step. Same holds true for a sacred space. You gotta try this shit out and see how it feels.
If you have to search for "you" than it probably is not the best look is my gut. You know a sacred space.
For me personally I share my sacred space with the waters edge, my yoga mat and a 'cozy' moment created on-demand using essential oils, candles, angel cards and music. I know the perfect locations, sequence, oils and so on to allow space for me to find me.
The miracle known as PaleoBOSS Lady believes having a sacred space is essential to all of our own miracle reality.
