6+

Your sacred space is where you find yourself over and over again.

Joseph Campbell

Today I’m going to guide you through the process of creating your own sacred space and talk about the importance of having one.

As a highly sensitive woman, it’s essential for me to have a sacred space where I can retreat and fill up my cup whenever I feel overwhelmed or anxious.

If you feel like you need a sacred space as well or if you already have a one and want to renew it, this blog post is for you.

Why creating a sacred space is important

To protect and fuel your energy, you need a dedicated space where you feel safe and comfortable, where you can come to whenever you need it and where you have all you need to unwind, relax and come home to yourself.

Your sacred space is a place for meditation, journaling, reading, practicing rituals, manifesting, and just being your truest self.

It’s a place you can come to whenever you feel overwhelmed, exhausted, drained, anxious, or nervous.

Most likely, a sacred space also is visually pleasing and this means it can cause you to be more motivated to show up for your daily self-care and mindfulness practices.

Create your sacred space in 6 steps

1. Choose a space in your home or room you love and feel safe and cozy in

Choosing the right spot for your sacred space is essential. While it’s great to pick your favorite space in your home, you also need to consider elements like privacy, functionality, and simplicity.

In other words, you need to pick a space you love and also think about your needs.

Privacy: If you live with other people, you probably want to choose a space that is in your bedroom, in order to have it entirely for yourself.

Functionality: Choose a space you can access easily and at all times. I recommend having a dedicated space that serves no other purposes.

A bad example of this would be if I had my sacred space on my dining table. Using my dining table to eat, work, and as my sacred space would mean I’d most likely have to tidy the space multiple times a day. Furthermore, the vibrations of my space wouldn’t be that sacred anymore.

Also, try to match the functionality with your needs. This means, if you’d like to meditate in your sacred space, you probably want to choose something low. If reading is your first priority, choose a space that can fit a comfy chair.

Simplicity: Your sacred space can be really simple. If you don’t have a lot of space I’d suggest choosing your night table, a corner in your living room, the surface of a dresser or a window sill.

2. Clear the space

We want to start with a clean energetic slate. Use white sage Palo Santo, incense, or auric spray to neutralize the energy in your space.

And, you can use affirmations to facilitate the process. Here is an example I personally like:

I fill this space with light, love, and positive energy.

3. Consider the purpose of your sacred space

Before you select items to fill your sacred space with, you need to clarify what you want to use the space for. This will help you to make sure you are not going to clutter your space with unnecessary items.

Do you want to use your sacred space for meditation, reading, journaling, or to attract something specific like love, abundance, or health?

4. Choose items that make you feel uplifted and inspired

Your sacred space is not complete until you fill it with meaningful items that make it sacred and raise its vibrations.

Questions that might help with your decision:

  • Which items or tools make me feel inspired and high-vibe?
  • What will get’s me excited to show up for my spiritual practice?
  • Which items will help me to attract what I desire?
  • What items do I use daily in my spiritual practices?

5. Place your items intentionally

Let your intuition guide you and place the items where they feel right. Don’t overthink and let your creativity take over.

However, if you are in need of some guidance, I have a few tips that will make every space beautiful:

  • Place large items in the back and small ones in the front.
  • Arrange smaller things like crystals, essential oil bottles, or candles on a tray.
  • Use soothing colors that have a calming impact on you, but create visual interest with different textures on pillows, drapery, or rugs.

6. Show up to your sacred space daily

In step three you thought about the purpose of your sacred space. Now it’s time to implement your intentions on a daily basis.

If you really want to embody your best self, raise your vibrations, and protect your precious energy, you need to show up and make use of your sacred space every day.

Therefore, I highly recommend writing your resolutions down. If you have a (bullet) journal, this is the perfect space to hold yourself accountable.

Also, setting a specific time to show up and follow through with your spiritual practices or routine is advisable.

Inspiration

Even though I guided you through a step by step guide on how to create a sacred space, I wanted to emphasize that it’s completely up to you, how you design your space, and which of my steps and tips you want to implement.

Therefore, take whatever feels right and make your space as unique and whimsical as you are!

      I think a sacred place is a important room for everybody is something that should be essential. And not many people are willing to respect the privacy of others, we have to start setting boundaries we need this place to have peace in our minds.

    I love the way this article is written and I have always loved crystals and plan to collect even more to clear my energy and my space’s energy. I also use sandalwood incense. I just love the aroma and how it makes the space so enigmatic.
