When my world has crashed and I can’t breathe, I tune in. I feel the pain fully. The disappointment runs through my veins. The sadness suffocates my cells. I create the sacred space here. My heart beating, my internal altar. A flame that never dies out, where I come to surrender, to dissolve. Can I bow here?
Then come the moments of eternal satisfaction, wholeness and joy. Crystal eyes locking and connected fully. The blazing jewel in my chest radiates life to its fullest capacity. That feeling, the ultimate high of being seen, being valued, being loved. Can I bow to this sacred moment?
This pain, this joy, these full feelings that remind us we are alive. A vibe of truth created. The sacred chain between us forms when we allow and recognize the ability to feel what is ‘true’ in the moment. This is the sacred space. The space between you and me. The knowing that I see you, I feel you, I hear you and I accept you, right where you are.
My practice is to engage with life by identifying all of these moments, coming in and out like the tide. The hard moments will cycle back to the happy moments, the love will cycle back to the pain, the easy will cycle back to the challenging. The sacred cycle. The sacred practice.
Crystals, gems, candles, feathers, tarot cards, photos, and sweet words are wonderful for creating the comfort and sweetness for one to sit, to be held, to literally be altered. To pray, to float away, to sink in. The question I ask is, can we carry this altar in our hearts as well? Not having to light a stick of incense. Can the sound of the bell, the sound that never begins and never ends, can it rest in our soul instead? The photos, words, and special moments glued to the gemstone of our heart. Making space inside of you, of me. Keeping this space connected to each others’ internal altar. The space I create is not in a room and cannot be found in nature. It is not a destination. It is me, it is you… connected in truth.
