How do sacred spaces benefit our healing?

So as some of you may have seen on my Instagram (@lightofsolstice) I had a short break from creating the oracle deck while I waited for new art materials, and began to make a miniature box altar.

I literally could not stop thinking about it, and had to do. I wanted to approach it like a piece of art - collage, sculpture using salt dough to make the small alter items. I have been taking photos as I go along (nearly finished!) so I could write a post about it, share the progress and hopefully inspire some to create their own!

It's not the first time I have created a box altar. I think it was towards the end of last year that I created a little angel altar, though as I have progressed with learning about intuitive healing, and putting together a kit for this, a lot of the items have now gone. Plus, I used a small gift type box, and chose not to embellish it, only using a small cloth I sewed an angel onto to cover it. It still looked and felt magical, with high positive energy, so it certainly did the trick. But this time, I wanted to do something more elaborate and artistically inspired.

Whilst creating it, it got me thinking about sacred spaces, how throughout all time people have created and visited them, hoping for healing and a connection to the divine / universe / source or whatever you wish to call it by. I have been watching some interesting documentaries on youtube, unfortunately I can't remember what the name of it was, but it did discuss from a physics point of view about how we are connected. It just really blows my mind. In my head, without a doubt, there is something out there bigger then us, and while I don't have the best brain for science (I'm all about the creative aspect, science and maths just don't stick, and I have tried) I enjoy hearing about how science and spirituality are linked. I also believe that spirituality came first, and then religion, as all religions do seem to have many common themes.

Within all religions there is the aspect of a sacred space - a place to put aside anything from the day and have the purpose and intentions to make a connection to Gods / Goddess' / Divine. A place for worship, healing and prayer. I find it really interesting learning the odd bit about older religions, particularly old Norse, and I'll be honest here, my interest may have been ignited by the popular (and brilliant) series Vikings.

What Carolyn discusses in some detail is about the array of energy that contributes to a scared space. As space can absorb the vibrational frequency in the same way we can record a video, every living being contributes to the frequency of that energy. In sacred spaces, this energy is amplified, and human thought and emotions is a big contributing factor to creating an energetic imprint. We all have an aura around us, also known as our energy field, which is affected by many things, such as other peoples energy, our enviroment and even if there is illness in us. In terms of a healing, sacred space, the energy it holds has a direct affect on our energy feild, which can in turn have a positive healing affect on our mental, physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. edly, can be a tbit 'conspiracy theory' , so we shall leave that for another time.

What it all comes down to, is energy. It can not be created or destroyed, only transferred. So a space, be it man made or natural, will affect us through its energy transfer. And when it comes to made made sacred spaces, people often add in other energy baring items, such as candles, crystals, natural items (think shells, rocks etc) statues of deities, and more often then not, intention. With intention, it's like sending a direct message to the Universe. You are creating the energy of what you want through the energy of thought, and off it goes out there. You see, through the sacred space, you're communicating with the divine, you're sending out and receiving energetic information. This is powerful and incredibly healing. It's also very achievable in a modern lifestyle and can be as grand as you wish. Perhaps you have a spare room, that you create an altar in a have the intention that entering that room you are surrendering that which does not serve you and welcoming what does for your highest good. Or perhaps, like me, you have a fancy for creating an altar box. Something that is compact, but still effective for healing and connecting to the divine / universe / gods / goddesses etc. With adding in small items to represent the Goddess (the theme I have chosen) , I am adding in additional energy that represents her and what I would like to connect with, making it have a higher frequency, so when I have my altar set, I am connecting with her and her healing energy, and hopefully, feel the change in the atmosphere.


I hope it has been interesting reading a little something about healing spaces and the significance of energy, maybe, you're inspired to experience the energy if a sacred healing space?
