If you’re going to live a magical life, one of the first things you need is a magical space. Your environment has the power to intensify your energy, but it can also drain you, leaving you impotent to create powerful change in your life. When you are in your everyday surroundings you should feel energized, safe and empowered. One of the most harmful things to your environment is clutter. Not only does it block energy, but it can leave you feeling tired, confused and overwhelmed.
While it’s important to pay attention to your general environment, it can be helpful to have a special place where you go to intensify your energy and do spiritual work, such as praying, meditating and reflecting. By having a special environment that is set aside for this type of work, you show the Universe that you prioritize this time. You also begin to shift into a spiritual mood whenever you set foot in this environment.
You might play special music that shifts you into a spiritual mood. You might create a special playlist of songs that leave you feeling reflective, empowered and connected to a higher power. There are certain tools that you can use to create a magical environment. For example, an alter can serve as a focal point for your spiritual work whether you’re journaling or reading Tarot Cards. A meditation table is yet another piece of furniture that can transform any room of your house into a sacred space. You might even store it out of sight until you’re ready to use it.
There are also smaller items you can buy to create a spiritual mood such as candles and incense. Metaphysical shops sell candles that will help you do certain spiritual work. For example, Astral Travel Candles can provide guidance and protection while you’re traveling along the Astral Plane.
If you work with magical tools such as Tarot Cards or crystals, consider purchasing beautiful cloths and bags to store them. For example, a Tarot/Alter Cloth can inspire you with images of astrological symbols or the phases of the moon. Luxurious velvet bags can be used to enclose these items that are special to you and protect them from the curious eyes and hands of others.
Even if you don’t have a lot of space, you can keep some of these tools in a closet, and again, take them out when you’re preparing to do spiritual work. If you can, keep the energy that surrounds your sacred space separate from the energy of others. If you’re an empath, it’s easy to become distracted by the energy and the moods of others, and you want to avoid the confusion that outside energy can cause when you’re communing with the Universe.
If you’re confused about how to set up your magical space, go into meditation and ask the Universe for signs about what to do. You might also journal prior to going to sleep that you intend to receive guidance about creating a spiritual environment. Then expect to receive the answers that will bring about the surroundings that you seek.
