In this busy world, it’s important as empathetic beings, to have our own magical generator. We have to really learn to differentiate ourselves from the hasty world around us. We must keep our minds dipped deep inside those esoteric places and try to revisit them often. The ways of life will always continue to try and take us away from our rooted magic, but we have to enforce those connections that allow us to keep streaming our personal powers. An altar can work as a link between our external self and our mystical inner being. As we create this personal space of power and influence, it can help encourage the positive energies each day and up the frequencies within us.
In our practice, building an altar in our homes and having that special place that is dedicated to our magic is essential. This allows our subconscious and conscious mind to waltz and better synchronize. When our entire mind is concurrent, it allows better recognition of our deepest capabilities and brings us closer to our truest being. Our personal energy becomes stronger and our power amplifies. When this rhythm is fruitful, it persuades more positive, beneficial things around us. Welcoming opportune encounters, good things in our life and even strong strokes of good luck. Having this place where you can intentionally manifest, can open many doors in many ways.
It is important, even necessary to allow ourselves to come back to our mystical essence often. So we can better connect with our intuition and get a clearer look at our visions. It helps us stimulate our internal incarnations. This space will be an extension of our deepest roots, and all of what we are and can be. It becomes part of us and who we are.
Think of this as our personal vision board. Throughout life, our altar will evolve with us. Changing, depending on the things we want to bring, change or desire throughout our life timeline.
Remember, there is no right or wrong way of creating this space. The setup should ultimately come from within. So tap into your intuition and pull out your magic, this will become your personal creed where you can manifest absolutely anything.
