This picture is of a 6 foot hanging altar to the divine spirit of nature. It has over a hundred computer controlled LEDs that illuminate quartz crystal wands that change color, set into a glowing maze of Oregonian mosses, wild grasses and felled wood from California Forests, lichen, and dried reishi mushrooms.
Oasia represents my need to bring natural magick and a sense of wonder to my city. Altars are made by every religion, sect, and government. From mandalas to monuments, the power of altars is omnipresent. The great thing about them is they are open territory for self programming.
Read a great article from the Teafaerie about making sacred space for yourself here….
I like to make altars wherever I live and sometimes in nature, or places no one would expect. Creating an altar is a ritual that has fantastic potential for impact-full dramatic ritual. Copy another tradition or make a hybrid of a few. whatever makes you feel right, use that. Offering food on a plate to the spirit of your ancestors to awaken in you a particular power or strength may focus you enough to actually begin your adventure down a particular road.
