Define Your Sacred Space


You are a goddess of the Moon.


By learning to embrace your cycles, you are setting yourself up for positive intentions to carry you through each month.  One way to express your monthly intentions is through altar-building.  Perhaps you already have an altar space. Use this week to "spruce it up"! Make some changes to your altar that you feel resonate with how your current state of mind or spirit is now! If anything on your altar space doesn't vibe with you anymore, remove it and add something that does! 

Never created an altar? No worries! There's no need to go out and buy items; you'll see in the video below that you can often create a beautiful area using what you have around your home.

TO DO LIST FOR THIS WEEK: 

Create your altar space! 

It can be a "mobile" altar where everything lives in a box and you set it up temporarily. It could be in a corner of your room, or even a small space on your counter. This space is for you to touch, only.  It's a space for you to go to for silence and relief and meditation.  Start small, with things that mean a lot to you; then, as you walk in nature or go through life, you may find things that you know should be on your altar space. If you wrote down your intentions last week, you can place them on your altar.
