“Rituals create moments where living becomes art. Poets, writers, painters and musicians aspire to heightened moments of awareness, times when they feel they have something unique and inspiring to give the world….We all have this instinct to create beauty, distinction and meaning in our lives….”
~ Alexandra Stoddard
To me the ritual of creating an altar, setting intentions, bringing together all the pieces and thoughtfully setting it all up, is a creative act. It is a mindful practice that teaches us to slow down, see beauty and honor the sacred within everything around us. It can be a very personal creative act, or we can share it with others and help to inspire as well as re-inspire ourselves.
In a previous post, I had invited everyone to send me their #LittleAltarsEverywhere pictures and I would share a follow up post, and here’s A Sacred Gathering: Little Altars Everywhere on the Be You Media Group‘s blog. I hope all these little pockets of sacred spaces inspire you to create your own little altars, and should you capture them in a photo hashtag your altar photos #littlealtarseverywhere (Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook) and join all of us who share our sacred spaces.
