How to Create Space to Strengthen Your Gifts
A question I hear a lot is, “Janet, how do I create the space to really work with, open up, and strengthen my intuition?”
There isn’t a one-size-fits-all answer, but the most important aspect of this question is the intention. So the first step is to hold the intention and then ask, “What does that mean for me?” When we have an intention, the more we connect with the intention and the more that we interact with the energy of it, the more results that we're going to see.
For example, if you say, I want to strengthen my intuition, but then you don't do anything to do that, you're not going to see much of a result. And that goes for anything, right? We all know that manifesting requires action. So the thing that I really like to suggest is that everybody create their own sacred space. This is really simple to do. You don't have to have a whole room dedicated to it, but if you have that available to you, by all means, go right ahead and do that. But if you don't, it can be something very simple.
I have sacred space in my office and also at home. I don't have an entire room that I can use for my sacred space, so Scott (my partner) and I have created sacred space in the corner of our bedroom.
We put a big arm chair there, we've got an altar there. So we've been able to do what we can do with the space that we have. The important aspect of it is that whenever I sit down there, I know that I'm doing sacred work. I know that I'm working with my intuition. I'm connecting with spirit. And as soon as I sit in that chair, something happens immediately. I feel more connected and it's just this little cocoon of sacred space that has been created
I suggest an altar, but again, it can be whatever you want it to be. It doesn't have to be a big production - it can be a very simple altar, as simple as some stones, just a few objects that feel sacred and special to you. Something that represents your connection to spirit. Play with it and have fun.
No matter how you pull your sacred space together, what matters is that it is a container that is magnifying your intention and holding the space for you have that connection to your intuition and to spirit. It will gain strength and power over time, and the more that you work with the space, the stronger than it will get.
What do you do once you’ve created your sacred space?
Whatever you want! Here are some ways you can utilize your sacred space…
- Journaling - this is a great way to really support your connection to the divine.
- Prayer - this is probably the most common activity associated with an altar, but don’t get caught up in the religious connection, at the heart of it, prayer is simply speaking with spirit.
- Meditate - your sacred space is the perfect spot for guided meditations.
- Work with crystals and gemstones - if you have stones that you feel connected to, use your sacred space to explore the power and energy of the stones and how it can support you.
Remember that just because somebody who is a “spiritual guru” says that he or she does it this way or that way, doesn't mean that that's the right way for you. The goal is to set yourself up with activities for connection in your sacred space that feel good to you so that you want to be there. It’s about what supports YOU, so let your intuition guide you and allow things to change as you feel necessary.
