Creating a Sacred Altar in your home

 An altar invites us to reconnect with the deepest parts of ourselves, for an altar is a window to the Divine. It opens the channels of communication to the world of Spirit. An altar offers us a space where we can ask for guidance and strength, express gratitude, tap our inner magic, set intentions, offer blessings and meditate. By creating an altar, we connect the physical and the spiritual worlds. A home altar is not a necessity, though it does remind us to connect with Source throughout the day.

 To locate your altar, find a space in your home that is private and where you will be comfortable spending time each day. You can place it in a meditation or yoga room, but I do not recommend placing it in the bedroom for this is the place for rest and romance. If it must go in the bedroom, place a screen around it as it can be disrespectful to have sacred items facing towards your bed.

If your home has no private area, your altar can be placed in a special cabinet that can be enclosed. Your garden could also become the site for your altar, thus inviting you outdoors to spend more time with Mother Earth. While sitting at your altar, it is best to face East, the direction of the sun’s rise, which signals new beginnings.

When creating your Altar, set an intention as to the purpose of the altar. It may be for connecting with your higher self, for abundance, love or healing, or it may be an altar related to all of the above. As you create your altar, keep in mind the left side is the feminine side, the receiving side, and the right is the masculine and the giving.

If you love to travel and like the comfort of having some of your sacred items with you, you can also create a traveling altar. Simply pack up a few ritual items in a small bag. You can also create an altar as you travel by adding special things that you find on your journey such as rocks, feathers, leaves, and tokens you purchase.

When assembling items for your altar, consider a table and table cloth, spiritually symbolic spiritual things, candles, charms, incense, a magic wand, sacred texts or pictures that inspire you, and perhaps oracle cards to draw from when you are looking for guidance Also important are the five elements:

For Earth, add crystals, stones, sand, dirt from a site sacred to you, cornmeal, or tobacco.

For Wood, add flowers, greens.

For Fire, include a candle or incense.

For Water, add purified water, blessed water in a bowl.

For Metal, try metal items such as a statue, singing bowl, bells.

For Air, use incense, sage or sweetgrass, a feather.

Remember not to overcrowd the altar as this can create a cluttered mind, just as an altar that is too bare can represent a lack in your life.

To keep the vibration high and clear on your altar, include only items that you love and that feel in alignment with you. Changing the arrangement of items weekly and adding fresh flowers will keep the energy flowing.

Dust and wipe down the area around your altar, and use fresh candles, for burnt out candles could reflect that your energy feels that way in your life. Light your candles, incense or sage regularly to keep the passion alive and flowing in your life as you visit your altar daily—and with love.

This is a journey to open you to the soul of an ancient and inimitable country, and perhaps also awaken long-forgotten ancestral memories of your own.

There will be no coincidence on the group that ends up taking this journey together. This is a Pilgrimage is the inner calling. It is often the answer to that inner longing which ever draws you forth upon your journey. It is a spiritual, fun and educational journey, sometimes moving in silence and sometimes dancing and singing in Irish song. Explore Celtic & Pre-Celtic Mythology & History in the land where it comes alive connect with the Goddesses and fairies on the land. Ireland is a magical, mystical land, redolent with the spirit of ancient sites, the sacred landscape, and traces of the many Goddesses from Irish myth and legend. We shall explore some well-known and many lesser-known places associated with Goddesses and Saints.
We will blend old and new Ireland together for a balanced vacation, having some fun in the pubs with live music and dance, capturing life-long memories. Re-awaken, as you explore during the day and are delighted with evenings of entertainment shared with old and new friends. There will be time to enjoy walks over the rolling hills and sandy beaches, stroll around bustling harbors and down lanes edged with ferns, listen to traditional music of the harp, fiddle and pipes, and attune to the Spirit of Place of some of Ireland’s most unforgettable landscapes.
The sacred land of Ireland calls to us to connect to our ancestors, our spiritual selves, to the oceans that spiral within us. She beckons me back again and again, is a part of my blood and my body, my heart and my soul. I am honored to share with you what She has shared with me. Explore history, mystery, Celtic Teachings, ancient sites and more as we journey through this incredible land; meet wonderful people; learn history as it comes alive everywhere we travel; visit magnificent ancient 5,000 year old or older sites of mystery – cathedrals of Neolithic times; and feast your eyes and senses on the lush country of Ireland – land of loughs (lakes), mountains, cliffs, & Irish music, connect with our power animals, the fairies, angels, earth, goddesses of the land, druids, divine feminine. We have time to meditate in this powerful place to connect with the ancient and other-worldly energies. Participate in meditations, ceremony, rituals to connect with the powerful energies.
