Step 2 ~ The Visualization
How did your exploration of what Sacred Space means to you through words and/or symbols turn out?
I'm sure by now you are starting to get an idea of how your Sacred Space can be infused with your own essence. Now, I invite you to visit your Sacred Space, by visualizing it and exploring what you find there. I will guide you through a meditation to do just that, then you will explore another ARTsignment™.
This ARTsignment™ will be a Story Completion. I will guide you by offering you a prompt and asking you to complete the sentence with the first thing that comes to mind. Again don't overthink it...just write the first thing that comes to mind. Once more, I invite you to grab a piece of paper/your journal or just download the pdf provided below, as well as a pen, pencil, or marker, and let's begin!
🌙 A Moonlit Pearl of Inspiration ~
Everyone experiences meditation differently. Some of us are very visual, others just get a feeling or sense, while yet others hear or have a knowing. I'm sharing this with you because I often hear when people share their meditation experiences that they wonder why theirs were so different, or why they didn't “see” all the details as someone else experienced. It's because we all have different experiences when we meditate. For me, it's more of a feeling, a knowing more than it is visually seeing the objects or space around me. I assure you however you experience your meditation, it's perfectly right for you.
Start by listening to the meditation below then fill in the Story Completion and answers the questions that follow.
I walked into my Sacred Space and was so surprised by ___________________________________________
It looked like ______________________________________________________________________________
I immediately noticed _______________________________________________________________________
However, as I looked more closely I saw ________________________________________________________
Suddenly my attention was drawn to ____________________________________________________________
I finally knew ______________________________________________________________________________
And all I need to do is _______________________________________________________________________
Once you've completed the Story...explore these questions...
~ What did you learn about your Sacred Space?
~ How did your Sacred Space make you feel?
~ What spoke to you the most about your Sacred Space and why?
~ Setting an intention for your Sacred Space is powerful medicine, what intention do you feel your Sacred Space had?
To wrap up today's discoveries I invite you to doodle an image of what your Sacred Space looked like. Allow yourself to PLAY, remember you are coming from a place of your imagination, which is not literal but symbolic, no need to be an artist here, just have FUN with it!
