We need sacred space in our lives. It doesn't matter how big or robust the space, it needs to be home. It needs to be nurturing and hold us in just the right way. Sacred space is a source of support for the Mama Warrior that is undeniably esssential to warrior status. 

I have a few spaces in my life that I come to for unwinding and releasing. Because of how I have set these PHYSICAL spaces up, I feel safe and clear and calm in them. They are NO KID ZONES in my home. 

There are three: 
1. My Bedroom (I will share in a moment, hang tight)
2. My Home Office
3. My Bathroom 

I need three spaces because my cancerian roots need to feel home wherever I land. I will go through the peices that make each of the above work for me. 

My Bedroom 
I have had a pillow since I was three, her name is Maggie. She has been to Europe and Israel and many summer camp seasons. She saw pregnancies and heartbreaks and illnesses and fevers and temper tantrums. She needs the BEST of space to be happy (not kidding ladies). 

My oasis. My happy place. Where I come to cry, rest, recharge, heal, love and sleep. Cool colors, the best comforter, lots of pillows, no mess, the bed is always made. A lovely diffuser with oils that support rest and sleep and dreams. 

Photos of things and people and places that fill my soul and create ease from my nose to my toes when I study them. The nicest TV in the house because this Mama loves bed lovin movies. Clothes that are organized and folded and tucked away just so; and ONLY what I love. Otherwise, out it goes. Immediately. I have NO space for things in my life that I don't love. 

I have an alter in my bedroom that I place, gently, all of the little things that remind me of who I am, what I love and what I choose. A photo here, a stone here, a feather here, a love letter here. It is in front of this small, low, wood table that I sit and stretch and write and create. It is an alter of connection to ME, connection to my base. Nobody in my home touches it or uses it but me. It is SACRED GROUND. I BEG OF YOU MAMA, create an alter space for yourself. Hit me up if you need inspiration.

My Home Office
Yep, I have a space in my home with all of my creative pieces. A great desk, all of the books that I love, none that I don't love. A lovely display of oils and resources for all things Young Living. A computer that is fast and strong, and protected with an EMF protector. 

Photos of people who inspire me. Snacks (some hidden). A HUGE white board for my mind to play and explore. A file cabinet with only imperative keeps. I keep a yellow legal pad to my right and my Franklin Covey to my left, because if this mama doesn't write it, it doesn't get done.

My Bathroom 
I want to walk in to my bathroom and take it off and TAKE IT OFF. The stress, get that SHIT OFF mama. I want to unwind and let go. 

I am not a make up / fuss with it kind of girl. I love good stuff, good products, things that REALLY support my skin, my GIRLS, my organs, my hair, etc. 

I love choices and I have a lot of them. My shower has a few shampoos and a few conditioners that are non toxic, gluten free and smell like where heaven and lavender feilds meet. I have a few choices of bar soap that I would be willing to eat, its that clean. 

My bathtub has a buffet of bubble options and soaps and nail supplies and shaving options. Great candles with non toxic release. A photo of beautiful, round women relaxing hanging above my tub. 

I only keep makeup I will use. I have a display of oil based perfumes that I have collected over the years, set up like a museum shelf. Lovely. Everything else is neatly tucked away in cabinets and drawers.

My Chiropractic Office
I remember being new in practice and visiting an OLD TIMER in my craft and feeling like his office was a dugeon that was going to swallow me up and spit me out. It was stale and musty and literally in a basement. I couldn't wait to leave, it left an impression that will be there forever. I remember committing on that day, when I booked out of there, that I would go home and create the exact opposite SPACE for my tribe. 

I have spent many many years perfecting my space at LightSource. My practice is a living entity; she has emotion and charge and intuition and clarity. She has learned to YEILD TO THE TIMES, especially these days. She has had years of being FULL OF TOYS and SNACKS and MUSIC, and these days she is simple and beautiful and intentional. 

Her sole purpose is to please the senses of her guests, and in some eras her guests need space and others they need hugs and embracing. Right now she is colorful and lovely and spacious. She smells like the pot of gold at the foot of a rainbow of safety and love. She has intentional snacks and mindfully selected sounds and droppings of chocolates in just the right spaces. 

Practice Space Diffuser Love: 
Set intentions with your diffusers. What do you want to create, where? 
At the entrance, if you want to promote relaxation, then diffuse relaxing oils there. 
Where you talk about business, if you want to promote concentration and trust, then diffuse supportive oils there. 
The sky is literally the limit, there are so many combinations that you can use to create the sacred space you need to in your practice space. 

My Tribe 
I am so blessed to get to serve the people who choose me. I take care of the strong, the real, the awakened, the healing. They come to me, to integrate their power, to be better, to be stronger. We have conversations InJOY about being real, never making excuses for your greatness, never dimming your light so that others may be more comfortable in their tight ass skin. 

There is a social acceptance in our neck of the woods; a secret agreement among its members that REAL CONNECTION is not safe. Let's just state right here: REAL CONNECTION = SACRED SPACE. A space that continuous exploration of friendship, listening, and undoubted, unbiased acceptance are all temporary facets of the social season as it sees fit. I don't know how to be in that season, and I don't know how to penetrate its illusion. I am not sure I want to know how. 

So, in spite of the bubble, I have created a safety zone in my little corner of the world. A corner that creates SPACE real, deep, unyielding connection. Anything goes, anything can be processed and there will be no judgement from any one here. 

Leaning In
When I learn a new system, procedure, belief, rule, process.....I go to it. I absorb it. I penetrate it until it becomes part of who I am. Part of my culture of JOY. Then it can come to me, unfold itself and truly be discovered. Creating sacred space took years to learn, to absorb. Now it is everywhere I am, and I am with it everywhere.
