I’m not a great fan of the term “altar” as it too many religious connotations for me (I had a difficult Roman Catholic upbringing as a child). So I have various what I call “sanctuary spaces” in my work area and on the verandah outside my study, most of them involving crystals. From time to time I shuffle them all around (which keeps my husband happy as I’m not re-arranging our living space!).
So these are my latest sanctuary spaces – two on my verandah, one table of crystals in my work space, and another small arrangement on my work table. I also have a sanctuary space in our living room with my medicine shield and various candles.
I love candles and I recently purchased three candle holders from a lady living just around the corner from me who makes them very cheaply. I’ve got a further two large candle holders ordered for when my next pension payment comes in.
