With all the chaos and upheaval in the world right now, it’s imperative that we show ourselves some extra love. Designating one little area of your home all to yourself where you can retreat to is a big way to give yourself some very necessary self-care, and is the ideal place where you can put into practice many of the tips you've been reading in this Autumnal Equinox Series. If you live with children or other adults, it’s even more important to have a space you can call your own. Even if you’re living alone, create a designated area of your home where you can escape even from your daunting To Do list.
Once you have designated your space in a quiet corner (or spare room if you’re lucky), now to make it sacred: Keep it uncluttered, and make it beautiful with your favorite things. Keep only the things in there that will bring you peace and add to your healing. In my sacred space, I have a cozy chair to sit in, a candle, some sage and palo santo for clearing the energy, my favorite crystals for their healing energy, a little bluetooth speaker to play some healing music, my Mala for meditation, and a blanket to provide extra warmth and comfort.
Even if you just designate a few minutes out of your day, this sacred space is just for you where you can meditate, practice breath work, do Self-Reiki, or read a book- any of the things that help fuel your spirit and bring you healing, where you feel nothing but peaceful, protected, comforted and calm to get in touch with your higher self. Try it for yourself and feel what a difference it can make for your mind, body and spirit!
