Creating a sacred space for yourself is the foundation of inner peace. In this fast-paced world, it’s common for many of us to inherit the lack of value and discipline needed to prioritize our spiritual health. The moments you spend alone within your own energy field can be an extraordinary opportunity of connection with the inner most authentic Self and with the Divine Source of which that Self was created.
Throughout history, religions and spiritual scriptures dating back to ancient Egypt have taught us that The Kingdom of God is Within. In respect to this sacred teaching and to our spiritual wellbeing, it is our responsibility to create a space of sanctuary so that we can honour The Kingdom Within and more importantly, we can begin to develop a relationship with it. By creating a peaceful environment, you allow yourself to channel all your energy into connecting, communicating and receiving from The Kingdom Within. For those of us who have travelled to the depths of our inner being, we can testify that this Kingdom overflows with love, abundant wisdom, and life-altering truths which reveal to us that we are not only resilient beings, we are deeply loved, supported and profoundly relevant in our existence here on Earth and in the mystical and mysterious realms of the heavens.
Jesus says, “The Kingdom of God cometh not with outward show. Neither shall they say, ‘Lo, it is here!’ or ‘Lo, it is there!’ For behold, the Kingdom of God is within you.” (Luke 17:20-21)
The Kingdom Within offers us a space to acknowledge our pain, feel our sorrows and observe our wrongdoings without discrimination. It is a place of salvation where we are given guidance, support and permission to embark on a life that aligns with our true purpose. When you find The Kingdom Within true healing begins and the journey to complete sovereignty sets sail. With some time, patience, commitment and unwavering faith, you will discover that all of its sacredness and glory is found within you and that it is indeed your birthright to reap the rewards of this Divine empire. While The Kingdom Within is a place of solitude and inner peace, it is also a source of creation and unconditional love and by simply existing in your awareness it will begin to take reign over your entire being and reality. When The Kingdom Within declares itself, it will initiate a disruption of all your illusions and will destroy every ego-based behaviour, addiction, relationship, belief and any other forms of energy seen and unseen that have manifested from the comforts of your trauma. It will dismantle the paradigms of any false limitations which have been embedded into your consciousness. When you discover The Kingdom Within it will transform you to mold you for your Highest purpose and set you on a path your ego is not prepared for but God has destined you for. Like the pains of a mother in labor, you too will feel the discomfort of your rebirth. It is a small price to pay for the ultimate reward of full sovereignty and eternal residence in the Kingdom of God.
Jesus said, "Those who seek should not stop seeking until they find. When they find, they will be disturbed. When they are disturbed, they will marvel, and will rule over all.” (Gospel of Thomas 2)

Cleansing Your Home and Space
The first step to creating your sanctuary begins in your home. Use this opportunity to de-clutter by purging old items that hold painful memories and no longer resonate with your healing journey.

A lot of people get intimidated by meditation because they can’t seem to shut off their thoughts. Here is a helpful tip: don’t try to stop thinking - what you resist persists. Instead, focus on your breathing and always bring it back to the breathe when you find your mind is wondering (and it will!) Meditation helps to reduce stress and anxiety, boosts self-acceptance, increases feelings of compassion and fights depression. Meditation is the gateway to reconnecting with the Higher Self. It is how we quiet the outer world and tune into the inner universe.
Prayer is powerful and it is even more powerful when your thoughts, visualization, words and emotions are in perfect alignment with your intention. Prayer is more than a conversation with God. It is a declaration that you are empowered in your connection to Divinity and your faith cannot be shaken. Prayer is taking control over your energy and receiving from the very source that triumphs over evil.
