Building an Altar is a great way
To start the New Year.
Have fun with it!!!
Find a special place in your home.
My main altar is where I practice yoga.
There are several other small altars
Around my home that I move around
Depending on my mood and intention.
Ideas of what to place on your Altar:
Deities – I have Quan Yin (Goddess of
compassion), Kali and Mother Mary.
Photographs of loved ones, who I am
Mala Prayer Beads.
Fresh Flowers – I like to place something from the earth.
Incense – I imagine the smoke going into the Heavens
with my prayers and intentions for the day.
Candles – I always light one when I am in the home.
Aromatherapy – I love beautiful scent.
Words of Wisdom – Beautiful thoughts as you walk by.
Mirror – To remind me to go within for answers.
Special treasures from travels.
“May we all find peace within andExtend that love to all that we encounter.”
Happy New Year to you and your loved ones.
(Please note that Mala prayer beads, aromatherapy and candles can
be purchase at the Heart Based Healing Store, with a portion going
to benefit women at risk.)

“…If You are Standing Before A Beautiful Flower, You Will Not Be Able To See It…You Have To Be Silent, Utterly Silent, Not Even A Flicker Of Thought–And the Beauty Explodes.” By Osho
“Thoughts can create such a barrier that even if you are standing before a beautiful flower, you will not be able to see it. Your eyes are covered with layers of thought.”
“You have to be silent, utterly silent, not even a flicker of thought – and the beauty explodes….”
