Making Space for Sacred Space




By Stephanie Yeh

MAKING SPACE for Sacred Space
==================================================
When you read a great inspirational book, prayer, or article,
don't you think to yourself, "What a great idea! I should do more
daily rituals, prayer, meditation."? It always seems like a great
idea, right? We know that sacred practices and sacred space
bring peace, harmony, joy, and ease into our lives. Sounds like a
great idea!

The problem is that the impulse to add more sacred activity into
our lives only lasts for a few moments-then life intrudes and we
forget all about it until the next time we read something
inspiring. So how can we really make space for sacred space in
our lives? Luckily it's not as hard as you think. Check out these
simple ways you can expand the sacred in your life:

1) Be Simple and Consistent: Consistency in creating sacred space
is much more important than quantity. Choose one sacred practice
you will do every day, and do it every day. Even if you just sit
and breathe for 3 minutes in silence, you'll feel the benefit of
those 3 minutes throughout your day.

2) Clear Out the Clutter: Sacred space means actually having a
space where you can be in the sacred. Dedicate one area of your
house to the sacred by clearing out all the excess junk, creating
an altar or space for sacred objects there, and keeping it fresh
with incense, candles, or plants. Keep the area energetically
clean with by smudging (get instructions by sending a blank email
to cleansmudge@shamanschool.com).*

3) Have Great Beginnings or Endings: Putting sacred practice at
the beginning or end of your day will make it easier to remember
and do. Starting your day with sacred practice will bring you
peace and awareness throughout the day. Ending your day with
sacred practice will help you rest deeply and beneficially.

4) Take Your Sacred Space Outdoors: There's nothing like nature
to bring the sacred into our awareness. If you find it difficult
to get out of your daily routine indoors, spend a few moments
outdoors each day, greeting the sky and earth. You'll be amazed
at how fast you connect to the sacred.

5) Move in Sacredness: For those of us who can't sit still long
enough to meditate, walking can also be a way to create the
sacred. Walking and praying, or walking and talking with our
higher powers can create sacred space around you, plus you can
take it with you everywhere you go!
