I reverently honor meaningful objects that remind me of my connections


     Shrines and altars allow us to arrange treasures, symbols, and icons in a way that touches our hearts. Objects such as a special stone, photographs of loved ones (including yourself!), and childhood treasures can be displayed in a combination that invokes memory, meaning, and reverence.

     We have shrines and altars all around us; wedding altars, special arrangements of mementoes at a memorial service commemorating the life of a loved one, even our Christmas trees are all shrines and altars. The altars that grace many Asian homes and businesses have flowers, fruit, water, a statue of Buddha and burning joss sticks that give the altar and the surrounding space energy and vitality.

     What about creating our own gathering of objects that remind us of our important connections? An array of seashells, photographs, and souvenirs that bring back the memory of a special trip; a gathering of spiritual symbols that evokes our spiritual nature in the midst of the busy activities of our homes; a group of photographs of loved ones which reminds us of our personal and family histories are all items to be involved.

     Create your own shrine or altar as your sacred space. It will begin to have a life of its own and you will be happily surprised at the significance and magic that emerge as the symbols it contains connect your heart to meaningful parts of your life.
