Day 2: Begin to Build
Today, we continue to create the Erotic Altar space in our mind, body, spirit and home. It is designed to anchor us in the divine essence of our erotic nature. Keep envisioning and gathering the items you may use to create your sacred space.
Thought for the Day:
Constructing an altar is a process, not an event. By saying yes to this course and considering the construction of your altar, you have already begun the process of aligning your Erotic Energy with the larger energy of second chakra. (More on chakras in tomorrows video.) We do this by simply clearing space in our lives to consider and construct an area specifically intended to approach the sacred. I have heard it said that an altar is an external representation of an interior mystery. Diving deeply into our own mystery, we will begin to coalesce our deepest desires, our creative force and our connection to Source.
Other items you may want to be gathering for your altar are: fabrics, feathers, faux furs, seashells, stones, coins, photographs, etc. You will also need to find a small table or surface. I often use bricks and boards, covering them with a cloth of some sort. Altars can have varied surface levels. I will sometimes use stacks of books, upside-down planters or old shoe boxes to create depth and texture. Again, drape it all with a cloth, and the look is quite beautiful.
Begin to physically build your altar. Start out simple. It will grow and morph over the course of our time together, and you will know exactly what is needed along the way. If possible, take a picture of this “first rendition” of your altar, and if you’re inspired to share it in our private Facebook group, please do!
