How do you define Sacred Space?
When we contemplate what a sacred space is, we often imagine a beautiful room of soft colors, inviting, warm, and inspiring. Or a beautiful space in nature, with a soft breeze and warm sun, with lots of green and blue surrounding you. But truly, to me, a sacred space in much more than a physical location. It’s a space within each person that brings about sensations of equanimity, acceptance, and comfort. You may or may not find sacred space on a map, in a building, or environment. These physical places may make it easier to access your sacred space, but it must first grow from within.
Sacred space is first and foremost, a feeling of safety. It’s a place where you can close your eyes without fear or anxiety. It’s in your inhale, your exhale, and even the quiet moments in between.
Sacred space is where the breath flows evenly, comfortably. And when the breath is stuck or lost or erratic, a sacred space gives you the opportunity to be truly present in that moment and allow it.
Sacred space is where you can create without attachment, love without judgement, and be free of expectations.
Sacred space is the feeling of deep, unconditional love, not from another living being, but from the depths and soul of the universe. You have nothing to prove and you are held in divine light, loved, and nurtured because you are here, you are present.
