The Importance of Self-Care, Manifestation, and a Meditative Space on the Spiritual Journey
As humans, we have a gift in this life to move forward on our spiritual journey that other animals and life forms do not have. But along this spiritual journey, it is important to keep self-care and self-love at the center. Every spiritual journey also requires the basic fundamentals of sacred meditative space, learning the art of manifestation, self-care, and self-love.
The Importance of Self-Care and Self-Love
Throughout life, it is always important to check-in with yourself and take care of your needs. If you don’t do it, then who will? Many people think that self-care is selfish, but this is not true. By taking care of yourself, you can help other people more and show up in the world in a better way.
The most important piece of self-care is self-love. Self-love is the act of radical acceptance of yourself and reminding yourself every day of your true beauty from the inside out. Sometimes self-care can move into a zone of self-hatred and wanting to change yourself. But true self-care is the ability to love yourself and accept your abilities and limitations with compassion and non-judgmental awareness.
How to Create a Sacred Meditative Space
In every spiritual journey, creating a sacred meditative space is essential to moving forward on your spiritual journey. By setting aside a special space for your spiritual practice, it allows you to approach that space with a deeper intention so that you can properly clear any negative energies and deepen the art of manifestation. To create a sacred meditative space, just follow these simple steps below!
1. Find a space that is separate from the rest of your home, if you don’t have a full room it can also just be a corner of a room that is quieter. Be intentional about things such as lighting/sunlight in the space.
2. Add any comfortable pieces to this room, like blankets, pillows, and soft fabrics. I would avoid textures like suede or leather. Cotton or linen would be preferred.
3. Decorate this space with any meaningful objects you have. This could include any sentimental or spiritual pieces. I like to incorporate those sentimental familiar items I hold dear to me as well as those spiritual items I am drawn to. I also like to incorporate the elements of fire and water into my sacred meditative space and alter, so I commonly use candles, incense, palo santo, spiritual waters, sage, oils, rosary beads, chakra stones, singing bowls, decorative water fountains, and other instruments as well. Make the space your own; try adding different elements to raise the vibe!
4. Create a special area in the meditative space where you can sit comfortably for meditation. I love using floor pillows and prefer to have my meditative space on the floor when I can ground and root my energy.
The Art of Manifestation
Once you have arranged your meditative space, you can practice meditation there and perfect the art of manifestation. Manifestation is essentially the practice of focusing your mind on your goals or dreams and repeating them to yourself mentally or visualizing yourself completing them. When you visualize or emphasize in your thoughts your goals or dreams, they will eventually occur in your reality.
Moving Forward on the Spiritual Journey
As you move forward on your spiritual journey, the first step is creating a meditative space to practice. Once you have accomplished that, just make sure to use it every day and deepen your practices of manifestation, self-care, and self-love. By slowly working to clear your energy blockages, learn to work with and transmute the energy, and live your life with a deeper intention. You will then begin to transform your inner being and live the life of your dreams!
