How to create your own Altar – 5 Steps To Create A Space Of Peace At Home.

Spirituality is the relation between the Self and the Divine. A Sacred space that allows the “Self” mind to commune with the “Divine” Mind so that one enters its Truth and allows Life to move freely. Here are a few steps to help you create this space not only in your heart but also in your house.

Returning from my spiritual journey from Egypt and Jordan, two weeks ago, was somewhat of a challenge. Over there, all the conditions provided me with an experience of oneness, like-mindedness, support and Love. I found myself wondering how to bring this extraordinary moments and sensations back home. I knew that I had to make this adventure a memory forever alive within. Even though, I intellectually grasp the idea of “The temple is within”, I also know the challenge with the discipline about something new. The transformation I felt was too meaningful to let it become just another forgotten memory.

I decided to make some room for a physical space to care for my spiritual Self. A space of non-judgment, of Compassion and Peace. An unique room in my home where I can find answers to my existential questions  and where all doubts are dissipated. I decided to create an altar.

Here is the 5 steps to create your own altar

1). Know the feel that you wish to experience & visualize the space in your home.
Envision Peace. Feel Harmony and balance within and decide where this space belongs in your home. The Bedroom is the place of Intimacy. It is a privileged space for a spiritual vibration even though it isn’t necessarily the only one.

2). Set a table or a space to hold different artifacts.
Whether you prefer a low table or shelves hanged on the wall, set an area where you can placed several objects and personal & spiritual memorabilia.

3). Get visual images that make you feel connected and at Peace.
Pictures of landscape, photography of a Master, avatar or prophet, personal pictures that vibrates the feeling you wish to surround yourself with.

4). Add accessories that enhance your experience of Harmony.
Add with moderation accessories that enhance your experience of Peace because they stimulate your senses in the most peaceful & relaxing way: Candles, essential Oil, incense, music, chime, plants…

5). Determine your seating preference.
Choose a mat, a pillow or anything that you feel comfortable to sit on for a prolonged time.

Now… breathe, relax and connect… Welcome Home…!!
