7 Steps to a Kick-Ass Sacred Space

Ready to take your sacred space creation up a notch? Want to incorporate more of your personality into your sacred space? Have you become bored with your current altar setup?

Here are 7 Steps to a Kick-Ass Sacred Space! 

7 Steps to a Kick-Ass Sacred Space Maven Unmasked
  1. If you're considering having an altar, what kind would you have? What is your purpose for creating one? Here are some themes to help you get started: psychopomp work, connecting with Spirit, Source, or deity, for prayers and mantras, ancestral, wealth/success, love, career, gratitude, fertility, psychic ability, health/healing, inner child/shadow work, protection, serenity/peace, seasonal/Wheel of the Year?
  2. Consider how you want to feel at your altar. Powerful? Confident? Strong? Free? Wild? Primal? Loving? Nurturing? Mystical? Witchy? Sexy? What can you do to help enhance this vibe in your sacred space? Do you need to switch things around a bit?
  3. Create the ambiance! Incense, music, and candles to help set the mood. 
  4. Work with nature elements! Seashells, acorns, flowers, leaves, stones, crystals. Open a window to let in sunlight or moonlight, as well as fresh air
  5. Color and texture - will you be working with the sun or the moon? What colors do you like or represent the theme of your altar? Doing shadow work? You may want to use darker colors like dark blues, black, and burgundy in rich textures like velvet. Looking for energy? Use bright sunny colors of oranges, reds, and yellows in light airy fabrics and linens. 
  6. Bits and bobbles - what special items would you use? Crystals, photos, journal entries, letters, money or coins, a special piece of jewelry or a lucky talisman?
  7. Make it your own - it doesn't have to look like anyone else's but yours. It doesn't have to be big and elaborate, nor does it have to look straight out of a magazine, designed by a professional, or like it cost hundreds of dollars. Use what you have! 

*Bonus tip! Keep the energy of the space clear and flowing. Smudge regularly. Have a bowl of water at your altar space to keep the energy moving. Don't forget to change it every few days or so. 

Things to consider when creating your sacred space:

  1. Do you want it to be private or do you not care who sees/inquires about it? 
  2. Do you wants aspects of it to be portable? 
  3. Will your altar setup be temporary or long term? 
  4. Do you have young children or animals in the home who you don't want messing around with it? 
  5. Invite your angels, guides, ancestors, and loved ones in spirit in when creating your altar space. They will spend time here with you, so create it together in sacred union.

How to Create a Gratitude Box | The Attitude of Gratitude | Maven Mindset

gratitude-box-2.jpg

A Gratitude Box is a fantastic tangible reminder of all that you have to be grateful for, especially during times of loss, hardship, or when you just want to feel all the love and blessings you have around you! Creating a Gratitude Box is helps you to open your heart and deepen your sense of appreciation for your life. What do you have to be thankful for?

Here’s how you can make your own!

 

Find your Focal Point

- Where do you want your gratitude to be focused? What are you grateful for? A new job? New baby? Your marriage? An achievement? Your family? Abundance? A loved one lost? Use an item as representation of this. I love to use oracle cards for this purpose!

Box

- What kind of box do you wish to use? Wooden? Plastic? An antique jewelry box?  Family heirloom? You can even a use a shoebox!

Cleanse + Clear

- Your box, as well as anything you put in it, should be cleared and cleansed of any negative, muddy, stagnant, or unwanted energy. You want the energy to be fresh, pure, and clear for your show of thanks!

Decorate it

- Show it some love! Put YOU into it.

gratitude-box.jpg

What Can You Put Inside Your Box?

 

Crystal Suggestions

- You can work with rose quartz, green aventurine, clear quartz, garnet, scocelite, or any crystal that fits your reason for gratefulness.

Memorabilia/Special Mementos

- Photos, family photo of loved one who’s passed, a representation of your hard work like a diploma or certificate, your fur babies’ collar/tag if they brought you so much love and comfort, baby booties, something special from your wedding day. Use whatever is special to you and is a reason of gratitude!

A $10 Bill

- A reminder that you are always abundant

A Sacred Item

- Like a rosary, a medallion, mala beads, or a figurine of deity/spirit animal

Affirmations

- Write these as inspiration and motivation for future moments where you may be feeling lack, fear, doubt, anger, or depression

Cards

- Include a special birthday, congratulations, tarot, or oracle card. You can even include a significant handwritten letter someone sent to you

Write a List

- Write about all of the things you're currently grateful for to help you remember why you're grateful - a date (wedding/graduation date), a certain situation, a gift, your health, family, your bed, your education, peace, harmony, your spouse, your career, etc.

Check out this video, where I create my own Gratitude Box, for more inspiration!

 

Stay Grateful & Happy Creating!

attitude-of-gratitude-blog-title

Gratitude is the Attitude of the season lovely ones! When we show thanks for the many blessings in our lives, seen and unseen, past, present, or future, we open our hearts to possibilities, opportunities, forgiveness, and love. Getting in touch with our sense of gratitude and appreciation helps us to center and ground ourselves as well. In honor of that (and in honor of the gratitude I have for all of you!), here is a list I have created that is chock-full of ideas and journal prompts to help you deepen your sense of, as well as express, an attitude of gratitude this holiday season or any time of the year! Get your journal handy and dive on in! Be sure to use #gratitudeistheattitude on social media if you decide to share any discoveries you make on your journey of deepening your gratitude consciousness.

Ideas for Expressing Gratitude

  1. Keep a Gratitude Journal - take inventory of what you have to be grateful for whether that be daily, weekly, or monthly
  2. Volunteer your time and energy by working in an animal shelter, homeless shelter, soup kitchen, library, hospital, or retirement home. What is close to your heart
  3. Donate your clothes, money, or food to a charity, church, or noble cause
  4. Make a meal for family, friends, or someone going through a rough time with grief
  5. Tutor someone. Use your gifts to help another
  6. Charge a crystal with gratitude or make a gratitude crystal grid
  7. Write a Letter of thanks to yourself or someone who has greatly impacted your life in a positive manner
  8. Pay it Forward
  9. Simply say ‘Thank You’ to the random stranger who smiles, waves, compliments, or holds the door for you. Thank your guides and your angels for all they do!
  10. Pray - Give thanks for your life, health, family, food on the table. Pray for the less fortunate.
  11. Light/Charge a Candle
  12. Create a Gratitude Vision Board
  13. Send healing and thanks to Mother Earth

  18. Don’t be afraid to have a conversation with someone less fortunate to let them know they matter too! A warm smile and a genuine ‘Hello, how are you?’ can work wonders for the spirit of both parties
  19. Do something for Mother Earth. Plant a tree, pick up trash in your local park, recycle
  20. Write affirmations of gratitude and carry them with you to read and say throughout the day
  21. Help children! Play with children. Read to children. Lead by positive example. Invite more pure, non-judgmental, childlike innocence into your soul.
