Starting 7th November
Over the past few months, we have taken steps to clear our mind, connect with our body, clear clutter and now is an important part in the whole process. Creating Sacred Space. We’ve done a lot of this already, but I’ve learnt how we can connect to the elements to bring a sense of sacredness to our lives and much more.
Many years, decades, centuries ago, we used to live in connection with the elements and the seasons. We would rise with the sun and go to sleep when the sun set. We don’t do that anymore as we have electricity and lights to keep us going. However, if we reconnect with the seasons and the elements we can bring that connection back to our lives.
Over the next four weeks, I will share with you how you can connect to the four elements, bring them into your home and using them to create Sacred Space. Join me on this journey to bring this sacredness to your life.

Element of Water
We have an obvious need for water, but our connection to water goes deeper than drinking it. In ancient times, communities were built around the water source such as a lake or river. We may often take water for granted, but when we take time to honour the water we drink, bathe in, cook with, and clean with, we can transform the energy around us.
One of my favourite ways to use water to create sacred space is combining it with essential oils and creating a mister. I get a small glass bottle and fill it with water. Once the water is in the bottle, I bless it. Usually this is holding the bottle tight in my hands and imagine good vibes going into it, and beautiful sunlight energy filling it. Then I add a three to five drops of essential oils in there. Different oils bring different results. When I want clarity I use pine or lemon. When I want relaxing, I use lavender. However, my favourite is mint, and often spearmint or peppermint. It takes my back to my nan’s house and the wild mint which used to grow there. After I have added the drops of essential oil, I then swirl the bottle to blend the two together and then spritz around the room. Instantly it transforms the space.
