“Your sacred space is
where you can find yourself again and again.”
- Joseph Campbell
Many of us have an innate sense of the sacred. We know that we’re connected to something larger than ourselves and, through that greater power, we’re related to each other. Yet, in our busy lives, even if we’re living with intention and know we’re on a sacred journey, we allow things, like work and family responsibilities, to take us out of that place of knowing, and sacred being. We forget what we know becoming lost in thought and in the day-to-day busy-ness of our lives.
It’s really not surprising that our attention wanders from the Essential, because “. . . what is essential is invisible to the eye” (Antoine de Saint-Exupery). That’s why creating sacred space is so important. Because it brings us back to the sacred. As Joseph Campbell said, “Your sacred space is where you can find yourself again and again.”
Sharing the experience of sacred space with others, as a group, is even more powerful. When we create sacred community, it amplifies the healing power of sacred space. The light and beauty that we see in another’s eyes, reflects the inner light within our selves. While this radiant essence isn’t something that you see with ordinary sight, it is something that you can sense. The energy becomes palpable. That energy is very healing. That is sacred space–a field of protection where healing can happen.
Remember, you can create sacred space any time, anywhere, as it is not a physical place. When you wish to return your awareness to your true essential nature, open and enter sacred space with your intention. Return again, and again, to that place of harmony, balance, love and healing.
“When . . . people relate to each other authentically and humanly, God is the electricity that surges between them.” (Martin Buber)
