Day #49 (General + Sacred Space)
Spiritual Icons and Deities.
So hands up who has a Buddha in their home?
Placing Buddhas in homes became a very trendy thing to do, especially when designing gardens. And I must admit I have many of them.
But is this a sign the global awareness for mindfulness increasing or is it a result of increased consumerism and pretty decorations?
Feng Shui has a very strong connection to the use of deities within our living spaces. Though it is always with the utmost respect that they are to be used.
Spiritual icons have been used for centuries for healing, prayer and connection and to simply place them in your space with no consideration for the sacred energy they bring, may create energy that may not be welcoming.
It is recommended that your deities be placed in a quiet and reflective room or near the front door for protection and prosperity. It’s not recommended to place any in a bathroom, toilet or cupboard.
And if one doesn’t feel right for you, it may be best to pass it on. Also avoid placing them on the floor, unless when they are being used for Spiritual practice e.g. I use mine a lot when I create healing mandala which I do on the floor of my healing room.
I’ll be posting more info re the meanings of specific deities in the days to come.
