Find A Sacred Space

Find a sacred space/
where you can unify your/
Soul, mind and body/

We all need to get away from the hustle and bustle. I have found that it has been important for me to find places of solitude or practice where I can meditate, pray, workout, and etc.. these types of things are best done in sacred spaces, because the act of you declaring them sacred for yourself helps to focus the energy that you produce. Now a major principle that I am using here is Kujichagulia (for more info checkout my book "Player's Pyramid") which gives you the power to define an area sacred for you. By declaring it sacred you open up a space where all the parts of your being can commune (more on this later). Now let's look at two types of sacred spaces:

First let's look at places of solitude. These are places where you can go alone and pull yourself together. These types of places allow you to create the space needed from the world so that you can work on you.
(Examples: personal alter at home, woods, parks, churches, temples, mosque and etc..)
The second sacred place that we can use is a place of practice. This is where we can go and meet with like minded people and do activities that keep us focused on developing ourselves and helping people focus on developing themselves. (Examples: religious service, martial arts, yoga classes, workout groups and etc.)
The idea is to declare these spaces sacred for yourself and respect them accordingly. Use them to further your trek on your personal Journey.
