As healers it is important for us to create in our minds a sacred space which we can retreat to in order to realign and heal ourselves and other people. This healing space is our own inner resource and it allows us to move away from the chaos of everyday life and journey inward. The more we access this space the easier it becomes for us to go there more often.
The healing space is a very sacred and personal space and it is different for different people. For some it may be a beautiful garden, for some it may be by the beach and for others it may be a retreat in the mountains. The idea of the healing space brings about a fusion of intuition and the intellect. It helps us get into a state of focused relaxation. It allows the mind to operate from a space where it feels safe and secure.
So I suggest you take the time to create your own healing space and in this article I’ve highlighted some of the elements that you could add to your space that would enhance your healing experience. Feel free to utilize the ideas in this article in any way that seems appropriate to you.
Things to add to your healing space
A door is one of the most basic and fundamental elements of a healing space. Adding a door will create a mental association with your healing space. Where in every time you open the door it will take you to your healing space. It also adds an element of protection and safety.
Make sure you are clear about the size of the door, the color, does it open inward or outward? does it have any symbols on it etc.
Elements of Nature
Human beings are often fascinated by the beauty mother nature offers us, it inspires and intrigues us at the same time. Make sure you add lots of elements of nature like trees, plants, flowers, birds, animals, aquatic life etc. also add in the various sensory inputs like the fragrance of the flowers, the texture of the grass your walking on, the temperature etc. The kind of elements you add is limited only by your imagination.
for e.g. I have in my healing space a tree called the “TREE OF NOURISHMENT” which offers me any fruit that I require in order to nourish myself. So use your imagination and don’t be limited by logic, make it a fun process.
Water Element (Waterfall)
A waterfall is a wonderful element to add to your healing space. It provides a sense of tranquility and the sound of the waterfall has a relaxing effect on the mind. Furthermore, water is a cleansing element and any time that you require cleansing or if you have an object that require cleansing you can place it under the waterfall to let the water cleanse it of any lower frequencies.
The Fire Element
Adding the element of fire adds a sense of warmth and acts as a source of light, illuminating our way when we walk through difficult paths. Also fire acts as a transmuter of lower energies, so when you find within you or within your client any source or object of lower energy you can place it in the fire so that it is transmuted again into source energy.
Elements of Sound
If you’re an auditory person this can make or break your entire healing experience, elements of sound create a sense of pleasantness and spreads these vibrations all around our healing space. This could be in the form of a wind chime, a singing bowl, mantra repetition devices or anything that you can conjure up in your imagination.
I have in my healing space a monastery with a large bell that sends out the sound vibrations of peace and joy all across the universe.
In the second part of the article I will come with more interesting elements that you can use to enhance your healing experience. Till then I urge you to take the time and create for yourself a space from which you can operate at your highest frequency and that allows you to have access to your inner most resources and the power of your creativity and imagination.
