Create Intentional Sacred Space
Insights From A Deeper Song
The Creative in me honors the Creative in you!
I sat here buzzing with the powerful energy from the items I had placed in front of me. I felt I was being surrounded with healing, wholing, energy and I just sat there and soaked it in. The energy flowing toward me was incredibly powerful.
I had just rearranged the items I have around me at my desk, in particular, the shelf I face that is an altar. Granted, I have lots of great crystals and meaningful objects but this was a huge and unexpected experience.
I have a small desk with a shelf across the back. I have been using for my major altar since I spend a lot of time at my desk. I took everything off the shelf and then listened to my inner voice to see what belonged there now.
I journeyed to recite guidance from my helping spirits.
I was told my shelf alter was to have three areas, each with a specific intention. The middle area was to guide me on my inner world exploration to the Unseen world, the right side was to honor my guardians and guides and the left side was for my personal transformation.
I listened to my inner voice as I intuitively selected things to put back on the shelf/alar. Not everything was returned. Sometimes it made a difference where an item was placed. Even a few inches sometimes felt different. I would hear an inner voice that said no, it belongs over there”. So I moved it. I put back less than I took off and I can clearly identify the three areas of personal choice, adventure, and guidance from the Unseen World.
I had a lot of things left over.
I moved them away from the area and sat there with my newly arranged shelf/alter and felt the energy surround me – More energy than I have possibly ever felt from simply rearranging objects. I became wrapped in and healed by and guided by the arrangements of the items I had chosen and placed there.
I sat there for a long, long time and absorbed the powerful energy flowing from my new altar arrangement. I became aware that my arrangement suggested a triangle with me as the point. No wonder I was blown away by the energy. As I sit at my desk my altar sends me very intense, powerful energy.
And all I had done was clean and rearrange one shelf.
It was interesting to have a purpose for each area. Particularly the area that held the objects that were to help me create change in my life. Change is about letting go and making room for and consciously choosing what I want in m life.
My mala beads are in that area and I will use them each time I journey. Three are in a stone bowl with rocks from New Zealand and Hawaii and Australia that were gifts that called loudly to be worked with more often. They have very powerful energy and much guidance to offer. I added a multipointed calcite that represents an antenna for my healing voice and my podcasts going off into the world. In my adventure area I have items that represent my path and a multi-pointed light box crystal that to me represents a space ship going off to adventure. My first power animal was a dragon so my alter has several. And in the area that reprints my guides and guardian in the unseen world I have a small vase with a lotus that represents may wiliness as a receptive adventurer to accept ongoing changes. On the wall behind my altar is a lithograph I have carried with me for 50 years of a manual typewriter on a desk with a conch shell on the bookshelf behind it – writing is at the core of my life.
I have been working with energy for a long, long, long time and this was one of the most powerful experiences I have ever had.
It came from listening to my inner voice and making conscious choices.
That’s a good way to live life.
Place your altar in a place where you spend a lot of time. With the space empty, mediate and let your guides suggest and deepen the purpose of the whole altar or a specific part of it. Then follow your inner voice and make choices. Thoughtfully and with energetic awareness place items in it. Let things call to you from all over your home. Choose one at a time, listening to where it wants to go. Sometimes even a shift of a few inches makes a difference in the power of the energy.
What you keep around you makes a huge difference in the energy you experience.
This altar is in my workspace. I send a lot of time here. But I also have altars by my meditation char. Take your time and energetically and mindful manifest and arrange your altars.
DEEPER SONG AFFIRMATION
I create an altar that deepens my insight and awareness.
DEEPER SONG PROCESS
- Select a location for your altar.
- What is the purpose of that space? Creativity, contemplation, inspiration, steady workflow?
- Take everything out of that space and begin by looking at the location it occupies in the room. I turned my meditation chair to face the window so I can look out at nature while I play my flutes. The back of the chair now faces the room, but I face nature!
- Put back the essentials. My compeer for instance since my altar is at my workspace.. Will a slight change in positioning make a difference in the natural light? What do I need within reach?
- Take your time. Sit with each item you bring back in to hear where it would like to be placed.
- Be sensitive to how the energy changes with each addition. Sometimes even slight adjustments make big changes in the energy.
- When it feels complete, stop.
- Do this selective energetic practice to create other altars in your home
MY DEEPER SONG THIS WEEK
The Power Of Our Luminous Light
An Exploration of the Unseen World
There are specific steps you can take to consciously expand your awareness of your luminous energy. With deepened awareness comes an increased awareness of our collective energy as we experience that energy joining with others to balance our world. Let me show you how to consciously expand our Luminous Light Energy and expand our Light Collective.
Cara Lumen, spiritual philosopher and Founder of the Deeper Song Community is a cosmic explorer who consciously travels into the unseen world to serve as a bridge to help us expand our relationship with the spiritual world. She shares what she learns and guides us to the next level so we can sing a deeper song.
In this episode we explore
The Power Of Our Luminous Light
To Sing a Deeper Song Consider:
HOW TO DEAL WITH NEGATIVITY
What you focus on you see. But even as you look for and find positivity in our life, some negative may show up. How do you protect yourself?
Raise your vibration. Shine your light brighter.
You can easily put up a Transformative Shield; (How to Create a Transformative Energy Shield for Protection ) which changes negativity into positivity – the fear or anger or apprehension you feel is immediately transformed and the negative energy that reaches the outside of your Transformative Shield also changes into positive energy to go back to the sender….
The next time you come across anyone who is angry or negative, put up your Transformative Shield and sit there and radiate light. You do not move into the energy of the other person or the situation. Shift your focus to your own heart. Take some centering breaths, and sit there and radiate out streams of positive, high vibration.
Notice if and how and when the negative person or situation changes.
You now have control over your response to any negativity that shows up in a person or a situation
REDEFINE YOUR OFFERING
In these changing times, we need to develop a new perspective about how we earn our living, how we are in service, how we develop our own entrepreneurial offerings.
For instance, I was coaching someone who wants to help people with money management and I realized the word “money” is not as meaningful as the words that describe what money brings us – safety, food, shelter – some people are having a harder time with those basics than others. Money also means learning, security, free time, adventure, an easy retirement…
So a goal of helping people with their money is not targeted enough and not emotionally connected enough. If you are focusing on an entrepreneurial business, what specific outcome can you offer that will change a core situation for those you want to serve? What can you teach/show others how to do that will change their lives?
For instance, my podcast, Reflections of a Deeper Song helps us:
- Expand our relationship with our inner world and learn to interpret its powerful guidance.
- Raise the frequency of our vibration so we can be of greater service to the planet
- Expand our role as Transformational Leaders in the Unfolding of the New Consciousness
I help transcendent leaders who are stepping forward to define their role and potential participation so together we can build the bridges and pathways that guide us all into the New Consciousness.
The catch is, none of this is very specific, it is more about an unfolding journey, an evolving future so I can only address the energy that we are cultivating in order to move into this new way of being. But I do offer specific tools to use during the journeys that keep you aligned with your sou’s purpose.
Explore some phrases that describe your service to others and see if they open up some new portals to be explored.
Who do you help and what do you help them do?
THE POWER OF YOUR INDIVIDUAL CHOICE
I voted this week. I have not missed an election since I started voting. What a powerful experience to know that I have a voice in this world, in my country, in my city.
We must make informed choices, thoughtful choices for the highest good for all and vote our conscious.
THE ENERGY OF THE PLANETS
I’m not very deep into Astrology but I have noticed that my actively seem to slow down right before the New Moon and my energy and willingness and accomplishments take off with the New Moon. It’s rather like being shot out of a cannon.
If this interests you, begin to notice your seemingly stuck times and your I-can-do-anything times and see if the moon phases have anything to do with it. Then plan accordingly.
Bending over a computer or a phone will eventually make you unable to stand up straight. I know this from experience.
Between bifocals and diminishing eyesight, and a huge amount of time at my computer, my body has not been happy. It resists standing up straight. Then I discovered this awesome OMOTON Laptop Stand, Adjustable Laptop Stand for Desk, Portable Foldable Laptop Holder
It raises and tilts your laptop so you have to sit up straight with your shoulders relaxed. It is already proving to be be a posture game-changer! It would make a great stocking stuffer.
Look at your own posture. Look at the posture of your chorine and begin now to make the changes that keep your spine straight. You want to be able to stand upright in your old age! Trust me

OUR EVOLVING FUTURE
I am sensing a new awareness of my unfolding role in the New Consciousness. It has not taken shape yet but I can feel it evolving. I am fascinated. I am patient. I am curious, and I am willing.
Watch for the nudges from the Unseen World and see how where they are taking you.
THE YEAR AHEAD
I’m a bit ahead of myself here but I’m giving some thoughts to next year, 2021. What would I like it to hold for me, for the planet? You begin by looking at where you are now because all your thoughts and actions brought you here.
A few things for me are settled. Podcasts are ow my preferred platform I love writing in this newsletter all week. I like the Still Point quotes I offer because I have to consider them more deeply myself in order to write the sentences and process. So in one sense, I’m tucked in with my work for the coming year.
But what needs to unfold is my direction. I know it is exploring the Unseen World but since it is the Unseen World and I only know to use intentions to direct my exploration, I cannot make plans.
Now that’s actually a good thing as I participate in this changing world we are living in. We do not know the future so how do we make plans?
For me, the strongest step is to listen to my Inner Voice. The more I listen the more I hear. I pay attention. Often it is in the form of a phrase I like and I sit down and write how we might apply that or add that concept to our consciousness.
We have to trust. Trust that the perfect ideas will come to us and trust that we will hear them and trust that the steps we figure out to take are the most effective ones.
So there is not much to do right now except look back over the year and see what was effective, what I had a great time doing, what touches my heart, and see if I can find some clues to what is going to unfold.
Then I have to trust. I have to trust my body to hear the messages and trust my ability to apply what I am shown and share it in a way that you get it too.
2021. Look over your year at what you have harvested and give some thought to what you want to plant next year.
