This is a big one. The altar is the one place in which you can sit at and meditate and more importantly do spells and rituals with. Not everyone can have or make an altar, due to a million different reasons. For me, my altar came together bit by bit, and even now I’m still adding tools to it and changing what it looks like all the time. I was unable to have an altar for years, due to the fact that I lived in a serious devout “all-Christian-god-will-punish-you” kind of family. I couldn’t have my spiritual things lying around in my room like most other teens I knew and it sucked. My altar, even now is packed in a box. Each tool is wrapped in a white cloth for protection. Anyway, I’m going on a bit… Here are a few ideas I looked up on the internet.
I found this on Google! Almost like my altar now, beacuse I don’t have a table.
I found these really cool. But a more simple way to have an altar if you are unable to afford it is to have a cloth, preferably white as it’s a universal colour that can be used as a substitute to a lot of spells and rituals (more on colour magick another time). Your Book of Shadows, a pen, a picture/statue of the Lord and Lady, and incense stick holder and burner, oil burner, a small dish or jar of salt and another with water, and later comes the supplies you’ll need for a particular spell. You can add all the other tools at a later stage, when you are more aware of them and can afford them. Building an altar is important and sacred so remember to writ what you did in your Book of Shadows and/or Shadow Journal. If you can, take a photo. In fact take a photo of every altar set up you do. It increases your learning and development.
This is all for now as I’m rushing to go out. But I’ll update this this week! Mwah! xx
