Building A Spiritual Altar: A Great Way To Connect With Our Soul As We Begin The New Year

By Jennifer Miller
Yoga AltarBuilding 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
  praying for.
  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 and
Extend that love to all that we encounter.”
Happy New Year to you and your loved ones.
Namaste, Jennifer
