I swept and mopped my floors, did a load of laundry, and then I spent time with my Oshun space for a good part of tonight. I didn’t realize what a gift it was to myself until hours later and I was smiling idly to myself, on a Monday after work!

It may seem like a small thing, to reserve a space in your home for an altar- whether to bring in energy, manifest a dream, or commune with the divine- but I’ve found that it quickly shows up with consequence and magic. Especially when you remember to make it an active and not just a passive space.

Take time with your sacred spaces this week. If you don’t have one already, I invite you to take a moment to create one for yourself- perhaps one for the new moon, or an altar to manifest a goal, maybe you’d like to explore a deeper ancestral connection? Whatever reason you may have, however large or small, go for it and always with set intention.
