How many times a day does something that’s important to you get addressed with “I don’t have time”? We all know the power of prioritization in our business and day-to-day lives. When we put creating sacred space at the top of our list it lays the foundation of intention for all that we allow to flow from us.
This space setting is a way to honor the masculine aspect of yourself that is the river banks: the strong, stable, and sturdy walls that allow the moving, changing, shifting, shaping river to flow freely with direction. In being held she is able to trust in her ability to meet any turn, any split or rocky paths ahead.
Do you sit at your desk and begin to attack your to-do list, or is a candle lit or an intention set to open and honor the role and space in which you are about to step into? Does it make a difference?
Many writers open their writing space/time with a prayer or a personal ritual to set the tone for their work. I love this and have my own intentional way of invoking the muse that allows me to feel aligned and ready.
Our environment has the power to create or reduce stress; all that surrounds and fills us is impactful in how we feel. We are surrounded by suggestions. Each element around us is a symbol in which we create meaning for. When we already have associated meanings established then visuals begin to trigger emotions without the pause to create meaning. Studies show that we are more highly susceptible to unconsciously react to environmental triggers than we are aware of.
In knowing this, we have the power to take responsibility for the environment in which we create for ourselves, to live, love, lead, work and play. Below we’ll discuss the importance of the various spaces we live in and how we can create the perfect environment for our businesses to thrive.
Our Inner Space is just as important, if not more, as our outer stimuli. How do you feel? What physical sensations are present in your body? What emotions can you feel unresolved inside of you?
When this inner space is incongruent with our intentions of action our productivity has a ceiling of limitations. Primarily, this starts with acknowledgment, just noticing and observing whatever is within in us, and meeting it with love. This also goes for our physical body, does it feel aligned, supported and
May we reign in dominion of our inner kingdoms aligning our sanctums with our intentions to serve.
Our immediate space, including our seating can also be set to uphold a sense of sacredness that allows all that unfolds within and through that space to be of coherent intention.
Things to look at: is it cluttered, direction of your body, words that stick out, distracting colors or patterns, comfort, direction of your desk and lighting.
An optimal workspace may be in a light and well lit have your desk and yourself facing an opening in the room, i.e. the entrance/door to the room, so your desk can be a place of receiving what comes in. The space would be clean and organized with positive affirming words or images to elicit emotional states of being that would support, encourage, empower and uplift you. The space would serve your prioritized needs, i.e. if you record video, or paint or work mostly at a computer the space would be geared towards supporting your primary creative income stream. I also highly recommend a candle or essential oil diffuser.
Most importantly, is there something of meaning, something special, a talisman of sorts that reminds you of your path when you forget or get discouraged?
May we be directly surrounded and supported by the energies congruent with our heartfelt intentions to serve a greater good.
No, not like Mars and extraterrestrials… we’re talking about the space just outside, surrounding your workspace: your home, desk/office-mates, bordering rooms, the music, the humming refrigerator, the nosy neighbors.
Is that which surrounds me of my highest good and is it supporting my mission? If not, where can I step forward to create positive change and space for myself and in so doing honor the value of my work.
May all that holds me have my highest good at heart.
Our thoughts create our reality and our mind really is the space that directs our attention and pulls on our engagement. What thoughts are being brought into your sacred space? Are they honoring the sacredness of your purpose and contribution? Are they kind?
May all our thoughts come from a place of love and compassion.
Lastly, may your business thrive in sacred space.
