So what is an Altar?

I’ve been spring cleaning at home which led me to ponder altars.  An altar can be a very personal thing and you don’t have to be religious to have one.  Making an altar can help you shift your energy and attract positive things into your life.

An altar may be described as a point of reference for you/your mind and is a collection of special or sacred items that can help you create time for yourself, can help you focus on positive energy, can guide you towards peace and balance, and guide you towards finding answers to your questions.

An altar doesn’t have to be full of memorabilia, it can be a simple space where for instance you may just place some candles, a flower, some crystals, and a picture of a special person/deity and so on.  When selecting objects to place on your altar, select items you find uplifting and that help you feel connected to a sense of hope and love.

An altar could simply be placed on a shelf that you sit by when you’re meditating.  I’ve got one in my lounge that’s atop my bookcase!

Remember, there is No Wrong Way to build an altar.


Look What I Made

Having realised I needed some fun, last weekend I took a leap and did something I’d been planning to do for ages… I got creative and went along to a screen printing workshop run by the fabulous Zara Emily at her studio above the florists on Worle High Street. The image on the t-shirt is a likeness of my logo. Zara’s workshop was the best fun I’d had in ages – the session included a fab studio full of lots of interesting looking goodies, good training by Zara, similarly minded, friendly and fun loving souls to work and laugh along with, a nice cuppa or two and to top it all, Zara’s husband had made cakes – yippee!!
So the pic’s not showing my best side but I’m pretty pleased with the t-shirt which I wore at a wellbeing workshop I’d organised the next day! Thank you @zaraemilydesigner 😊
