According to the Encarta English Dictionary:
1. sacred inner place
a sacred place inside a church, temple or mosque
2. a quiet private place
where somebody is free from interference or interruption
–> The first definition made complete sense to me… until I got to the second line.
A sacred inner place ~ of course! That place in the core of your heart that you turn to within.
Wait… what? It is relegated to a building?
Your sacred inner place is where you find your deepest truths, most respectful answers and sage wisdom. Unconditional love and support emanates from this place and ensures your flow of wellbeing and self-assuredness.
The vibrations in an environment you find your Self in such as; Nature, a sacred structure or beside an altar may be conducive for reaching this place within but it certainly is not external from you and Source-ry is not dependant on it.
–> The second definition resonated well; a quiet private place free from interference and interruption.
Of course! That place within where you are completely present within your Self and so are unshakable by external circumstances. The calm within an emotional storm, where you can neutrally observe what is occurring and consciously choose how to weather it.
Nobody can make you feel a certain way or impose their will upon you. You either allow intrusion or disruption of your internal equilibrium or you don’t.
Questions for reflection:
~ How do you enter your personal sanctum, that is, access your core being?
~ Which activities or environments facilitate this connection for you?
~ Is it somewhere you only visit occasionally when you need to feel safe or relaxed?
~ Or do you reside there permanently?
*I Am Witch. I dwell in the sanctum that is within my heart.*
Own it. You know you want to.
