Your Guide to Building Your Own Altar
The purpose of this post is to get some tips and steps to take as you go along your chosen spiritual experience and journey. For the beginner or even for the seasoned witch, in this guide you will get some new idea and technique that will help you learn as much in so far as voodoo and magic goes.
For the beginner, one thing that needs to be known in so far as the practice of magic goes and the need to discover as much in what lies in energy and developing clairsentience, one thing that should come to mind first is the need to create your own altar. In so far as the altars go, these are generally to be taken for those personal and scared spaces that you devote for your practice of magic. Your altar can be of any kind as far as exposure goes as there are those who choose to leave them out in the open while others choose to have them shielded from the eyes of the general public. Over and above this, it is to be noted that they can take as much space as you may be willing to dedicate as such you will find some having such elaborate setups for their altars while for some, they do well with just a simple display of the same. This be as it may and for whichever approach it is that you elect to go by, the one thing that you need to appreciate when it comes to altar setups is that this space is all about you and the needs that you happen to have for the practice of voodoo or magic. By and large, looking at these facts, for you to create an altar that will indeed serve to enhance your practice of witchcraft, ensure that it is one that feels as personal as you can and not one that gets you the feeling that it is another thing to take care of. So, what are altars for at the end of the day?
By and large, when it comes to the purposes served by altars, it is to be noted as a fact that altars indeed serve lots of purposes in so far as your spiritual experience of the witch world goes. One, note that there are those who use the altars as spaces to show reverence to their choice deities. There are as well some who want to commune and connect with their long departed relatives and as such the altars will be their spaces for them to commune and connect with the departed spirits. Altars can actually be as well used to serve both these, acting as places to worship the deities and connect and commune with the ancestors or better still for neither.
