How To Create Your Personalized Alter
About a 2 decades ago “man caves” were a house hold name. Now, these typical rooms are being replaced by “home alters” or “meditation spaces”. What is this telling society? –
People are more in tuned with their internal connections then they are with the virtual realities around us.
So what’s the big hype about home alters or meditation spaces? - they allow a person to break away from the demands of their outward lives and come to a peaceful reunion with their internal spirit. These benefits go beyond decorative reasons because you can create them based on what your attracted to, such as; sight, smell, touch, taste and sound. But why the different names? – Simply because “Alters” refers to the term “a place of worship”, where you give praise to what gives you joy, however this word steams from a religious place. Where as the term “meditation” is more spiritual, looking within to find internal peace. Ultimately, both terms signify the same idea, a place of peace.
