Real Self-Care: Sacred Objects
This post is part of a month-long series on Real Self-Care for world-changers. It’s about the experimentation: figuring out what works for you and following your heart. Simple, messy and everything in between. Self-care should be custom, intuitive, feasible and kind – to serve your actual life.
The Real Self-Care series has been updated, revamped, and is now available as an e-book and self-care inspiration guide. Pick yours up here:
I believe that self-care is deeply personal; it should be custom to you. Today’s practice is no different. This is about claiming a sacred object or talisman. This object can serve as a proxy, a reminder, a way to center or ground. While I have some suggestions, this is really all about what feels sacred to you.
I keep crystals, stones, feathers and other natural objects from travels around my house. And virtually every doorway in my home has a small statue of a Hindu deity or Buddha. There are also particularly sacred pieces of jewelry that makes me feel powerful when I wear them.
Using sacred objects is not about buying things, but about finding the sacred is around us.
It may be something we already have, or we may find it in our environs. Sacred objects can serve as an energetic protector, a reminder, a form of luck.We imbue these objects with their meaning, and they in turn serve us and our well-being.
You could try feathers, shells, stones, or other natural objects.
As with most practices, this may not work for you. But stretch your imagination: if an object did have power, if it could ground and center you, if it could strengthen your energy body, what would it be?
Real Self-Care is now available as an e-book and self-care journal.
