In late April, Debbie Woodbury wrote a piece in the Huffington Post on creating a sacred space in your home. As a cancer survivor, she credits part of her healing on reflection. One of the things she mentions is having a corner of a room or a place by her window dedicated to being a sacred space – a place where an individual can just sit, relax and reflect. We are partial to the window idea, so let’s take a look at some ways you can make your window area a scared space.
- Get Cellular Shades to Control Light: The reason why Debbie Woodbury thinks a window space might be a good idea for a sacred space is because windows offer a look into the outside world. If it’s winter, watching a gentle snow on a cool winter night might be soothing after a long day; at the same time, waking up with a cup of coffee on a spring morning as you hear the birds chirp could be the perfect way to start your day. However, if you’re looking for less light to fit your mood, our Comfortex shades can help you control the amount of light that enters your room too, so your space will be just as you like it.
- Put Personal Things in your Sacred Space: Your sacred space should be a place of peace. Bring special things in your space that will make you happy, like a picture of your family or a personal heirloom that conjures up a good memory.
- Make It a Point to Come to This Area Every Day: Everyone leads busy lives, but you should devote some time for yourself at some point in the day. Make an effort to come to your sacred space, even if it’s only for a few minutes to sit and reflect. Afterwards, you should feel more relaxed and ready to take on the chaos of the day.
