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
.
(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.)

“…Events That Happen In The Moment Belong To The Moment…You Must Stop Defining Yourself In Relationship To Them, And Just Let Them Come And Go…” — Michael Singer

“The Deepest Desire Within Each Of Us Is To Be Liberated From…Our Own Psychic Madness Or Patterns Of Fear” – Caroline Myss

Full Quote:  “I am convinced that the deepest desire within each of us is to be liberated from the controlling influences of our own psychic madness or patterns of fear. All other things—the disdain of ordinary life, the need to control others rather than be controlled, the craving for material goods as a means of security and protection against the winds of chaos—are external props that serve as substitutes for the real battle, which is the one waged within the individual soul.”

“…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….”

 From “The Great Pilgrimage: From Here to Here” by Osho
