Let’s recharge, retreat and rejuvenate! The locale, you ask? Yo’ house! We all need a place void of noise and one that fills our souls with peace, gratitude and solitude. Why can’t this place exist in your home? Remember the movie War Room GREAT example of what a sacred space could look and feel like. A closet, a wall, a room.; work with what you have. What are you working with?! Need some help?
I created my first meditation space in 2018 after visiting my mentee, Surabhi; her meditation/yoga area had hygge and peacefulness written all over it. I was intrigued, so much so the experience inspired me to think about space differently. Within a week of returning from my trip I moved furniture, reorganized, bought my sticker decal and bam……I had my meditation/prayer space in my bedroom! Thanks you Surabhi.
My new space is a room that is truly a sanctuary of sorts. It is the space I go to voice gratitude, allow the tears to fall without judgement and to clear my mind from all clutter and ungrounded fears. It has a “grown ass woman feel” to it, but in a compassionate peaceful way! It has become a place where friends can find a little peace and take a moment to retreat. For me, it’s my “go to.” Each morning I take my matcha tea, foggy mind, uncertainties and lemon water into my meditation room and this is where I begin my day. No sound, no words….
Through my lens as a lifestyle specialist and professional home organizer, my life goal is to encourage creativity by way of living with intentionality. I want my clients and loved ones to create their own sacred spaces. A part of living with intentionality is creating time and space to reflect, to be still, and to invest in your own mental and spiritual well-being. What does that look like for you?
