Sacred Space

Sacred Space by Laurie Buchanan

When someone asks me to pray for them I agree to hold HeartLight—sacred space. This past weekend we created sacred space at my healing studio, HolEssence. What then is sacred space? To me it can be a literal place, a heart/mind location, or time that is sanctified—set aside for a divine purpose.

Sacred space is self-defined and different for each person. It can be something we create by intent such a room in our home or an outdoor labyrinth. Or, it can be something that already exists like a “cathedral” of trees or stones we find in nature. Be it a place, a mindset, or stillness of time, sacred space is anywhere we meet with Divine Love.

Where is your sacred space?

Funny Bones

Lauries Happy Feet by Len Buchanan

Lauries Happy Feet by Len Buchanan

My favorite thing on the planet is trees. Next is laughter. I love to laugh! It’s a great antidote to stress. As a Holistic Health Practitioner, I can share this fact with certainty: of the 206 bones in the human body, the most important one is the funny bone.

We’ve all heard the saying that “Laughter is the best medicine.” It really is. Just like a spoonful of sugar, laughter is easy to take. Possessing the same positive impact as inspiration, love, generosity, tolerance and respect, laughter is one of the many characteristics of Divine Love—Spirit. Simply put, laughter is good for the soul.

By the way, if you take the time to listen, you can hear the trees laugh too …

Listen with your heart,

Living Legacy

The culmination of our life experience—how we spend or invest our life—is our legacy. It is my perspective that a legacy is not about leaving a sum of money behind. Rather, it’s about our contribution. Whether we’re a global citizen like Mother Teresa, or a local citizen, our legacy is permanent and has lasting impact. Intended or not, as individuals we influence others. Our actions and inactions; the words we say or leave unsaid, each have an effect—positive or negative—on others.

If Divine Love is our compass, our legacy will reflect inner wealth. It will be evidenced by health, peace of mind, joy, gratitude, contentment, quality relationships, loving what we do, emotional fulfillment, integrity, the list goes on. We may not be wealthy, but our life will indeed be rich. And our legacy will be one of true and lasting value. Have you thought about what your legacy will be; what you will be remembered for?

Listen with your heart,

HeartLight

HeartLight by Len Buchanan

HeartLight by Len Buchanan

HeartLight is the term I use when I refer to the practice of holding heart-based intent — Light, Divine Love, Sacred Space — for myself or others. Weaving together aspects of stillness, Reiki, and the Tibetan Buddhist practice of Tonglen, HeartLight can be used individually or collectively; locally or globally.
