An altar is a focus point, an honoring of the divine when we would like to connect to Spirit for prayer, ritual, ceremony or for healing. 
I have included a photo from last night's Reiki Circle with Pam. This altar was created with the intention of honoring the Divine Mother. 
Here are some suggestions of how to create an altar ~

  • An altar can be created on a table, on the floor, outside in a garden, on a dresser, on a counter, in a drawer
  • When creating an altar it helps to be reverent. Taking the time to center  yourself. Sage and clear the environment
  • Take your time gathering the items to go on your altar. You would not want to just throw it together
  • Make sure all the items mean something to you
  • More is not always better
  • Pictures are great focal points
  • Have a representation of all of the elements 
  • Air is the direction of  the East, a feather, an oil, a bell (something for sound) a stick of incense. Bring in Archangel Raphael, Eagle represents the East as well
  • Fire is the direction of the South, a candle, copper, Archangel Michael stands in the South, the Wolf is in the South as well
  • Water is the direction of the West, a shell, a dish of water, Archangel Gabriel stands in the West and the Bear holds the space there as well
  • Earth is the direction of the North, grass, plants, flowers, sea salt, cornmeal, Archangel Uriel holds the space for the North, a picture of your Ancestors can go here as well, the Buffalo is in the North too
  • You can also place crystals that represent the elements as well
  • I create altars for different occasions, holidays and intentions 
  • I usually place a candle or crystal in the center as a focal point
Once you allow yourself to be open to your creativity, creating altars can be extremely powerful. 

Keep your eyes open for new altar pieces, you never know where you will find that special stone, book, feather and or picture

Blessings and Light,
