My ritual work has always centered around an altar of some sort. Even now looking back, it’s hard for me to recall what my very first ever altar was or how I got started doing it. I know my altars have been in bookshelves turned sideways, bookshelves right side up, in a gun case morphed into a jewelry display/altar, on chest of drawers, on the floor; in my bedroom, living room, kitchen, garage and just about everywhere in between. Essentially I view altars as a way of creating Holy Space. Since there is no space that is NOT holy, an altar is everywhere~ awaiting it’s positioning. I especially love altars that are created from complete scratch with total imagination. I adore windowsill altars. My altars are seasonal in their themes and have been for probably a decade. Despite that I don’t keep supplies usually, other than some altar cloths, and gifts with sentimental value. Since I’ve lived in this apartment for the past 7 years, I have made my kitchen my designated altar area. I take that back. It is my WORKING ALTAR. My FIXED ALTAR is in the living room. That one stays put and holds energy. It doesn’t change as often. The kitchen one is like a floor altar only I’m sitting at my kitchen table, instead. I’ve recently recreated a floor altar in my room however things need to be moved around to fit better. The point is that a floor altar is coming back into my life! If you aren’t sure what altars are or how to create them, have a look HERE.
Here’s a picture of my Spring, 18 Kitchen Altar:
Invocation to the Central Sun/Son and the Violet Flame
Dear God/dess, Source of All Creation, AA Michael, St. Germain, and Our Great Central Sun/Son,
From that centering place within~
Breathe in the love, exhale all fear.
Allow the light of the Divine to flow, begin.
Let all negativity go farther away still~
Feel the Central Sun transforming you,
Bringing vital life force energy to God’s will.
Purple transmuting flame lighting true…
The flame of St. Germain so bright!
AA Michael cuts cords as you direct him to.
We take this healing with us into night~
Feeling the morning fresh, aware, awoke and right.
Blessed by God and held so tight.

Well, I did it. I bought the Crystal Angels deck. Why? Mainly because I love the art by Marius Michael George. But I also love crystals.
The deck is ok. I have other crystal decks I prefer like Rachelle Charman’s Crystal Reading Cards: The Healing Oracle.
Doreen Virtue no longer uses most of her oracle cards bcz she says she became addicted to using them and now practices abstinence from them. Yet, she does use certain decks for contemplation only.
She recently posted a Q&A video where she explained some of the top questions asked of her. While she says she is being transparent, I still feel like I’m confused about her. It seems like the more she explains herself, the more confused I become.
I love Doreen and am really wanting to root for her. My prayer is that she finds a new Christian publisher that will work well with her new views, that her old ranch will sell to the perfect new owners, and that she is blissful in her retirement and receives all the blessings she is seeking. I want nothing but the best for her as she wants nothing but the best for her people.
I just find it so hard to let go of old Doreen who was so much stronger, wiser and unapologetically herself. But things and people change. I’ve been saying the serenity prayer a lot these days.
This has taught me not to hold on so tight to teachers, to personalities, to way showers. To look more in the mirror and question myself more than others. Perhaps that is what is triggering people. They have to look at themselves and their own shit. Find out where they stand, who they are, what they believe. Get to the heart of the matter and be that. In this tough, crazy world, that’s no easy task. Especially when you’re in the public eye. Sorry Doreen for being rough on you. I wish I could give you a hug.
