To begin setting the energies for your meditation and inner healing work you need to place yourself in a space of resonation with the divine. It is for this reason that you cleanse and purify the space you are using to receive divine help and guidance. You may wish to purchase and use a variety of tools to enhance the sacred energies in your space. These can aide in the conductivity of the sacred energies you are invoking.
Some useful tools:
Candles Scented Oils
Sea Salt Prayers and Invocations
Incense Small altar
To begin creating your sacred circle of light you take some sea salt water and sprinkle it clockwise around you in a circle saying:
” I do hereby purify this space, with the waters of earth and with salt, so that I may connect within the purity of my divine light.”
Following the water purification you take your incense and retrace your circle saying:
” By the power of fire and air I protect and seal my sacred space, that it may be innocent and pure.”
You are now ready to honor the Four Universal Directions of North, East, South and West.
North corresponds to the element of Earth.
East corresponds to the element of Air.
South corresponds to the element Fire.
West corresponds to the element of Water.
All life as we know it is made up of these four elements. We put ourselves in harmony with the energies, of Earth, Air, Fire and Water, by invoking and acknowledging them.
We physically are made up of these four elements ourselves. Our bodies are two-thirds water, our mind is air or thought, our spirit is fire and the warmth of our body is made of the same nutrients as earth herself.
Now face the direction of North and state: ” I invoke the energies of Mother Earth and her great protectors. I invoke her love. I thank her for the food she produces, the dwelling I live in and the clothes on my back. Mother Earth I honor you.” Close your eyes and let yourself connect with the energy you feel in this direction. Now do a chant, an AUM, or ring a chime.
Now turn and face the direction of the East and state: ” I invoke the energies of the guardians of Air and of the element of Air itself. I ask for the alignment and attunement of my inner understanding of my spiritual mind. Mighty element of air, open within me now and guide my thoughts and prayers. ” Close your eyes and let yourself connect with the energy you feel from this direction. Now do a chant or AUM, or ring a chime.
Now turn and face the direction of the South and state: ” Mighty spiritual light of fire. Power of the Sun. I invoke and call to you now. Bring your warm sunlight into my heart and soul. Make me whole. Great element of fire I honor you.” Close your eyes and let yourself connect with the energy you feel from this direction. Now say a chant, or AUM or ring a chime.
Now turn to the west and state: ” Mighty waters of the earth I honor and call to you. Inner emotions all align and open to truth. May the tides of man be calm and may peace prevail. I attune now to the motion of universal Light.” Close your eyes and let yourself connect with the energy you feel from this direction. Now do a chant, an AUM or ring a chime.
You may now choose to light one or more candles in your sacred space. Surrounding yourself with crystals may feel comforting or even burning a candle at each of the four directions. You will intuit what feels appropriate as you progress and practice.
Now that the space has been set you may wish to meditate, say prayers and invocations, or just listen to some soothing music that allows you to feel peaceful. Sacred space can be used to say prayers, to communicate with divine teachers and guides of love or even to do visualizations. It is your sacred space, use it for whatever pleases you in the moment. Be spontaneous.
Creating a sacred space helps understand how the divine and we are one. The divine is never in a hurry and always is at peace. By creating this energy yourself, you learn what it means to resonate. Energy is all resonation. You are always a resonation within the divine energy of all life. Play within this energy and learn to honor your divine self.
