One of the best resources you can have at your disposal to centre yourself in this brave new world is your own private, safe, inner space that you can access quickly, whenever and wherever you need to. Some disciplines teach this practice as a way to calm yourself in times of panic; others use it as a meditative technique. Once created, your sanctuary within will serve these purposes and more. It may be entered for prayer, contemplation and connection to the higher realms.
No matter what our day-to-day activities demand of us, we can build a ‘virtual backroom’ to which we may retreat when necessary, retiring into our own soul. Long before the pressures of high-tech living, the coronavirus pandemic and economic recessions, and the toll they take on our mental and emotional wellbeing, the Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius spoke of such a sanctuary and called it an Inner Citadel. I also like to use this term.
A note for those who intend to use their inner sanctum as a place to contact guides, angels and beings on the higher planes: Yes, this is a good platform for doing just that and, it is important to note, you are in control here, and no being, person or thing can be present in this place without your express invitation and approval. Always let this be so.
Here is a quote from Shakti Gawain (in her book, Meditations) “In this deep, quiet, restful place within yourself you are in contact with your own deepest wisdom, your own natural inner knowingness, the part of you that’s very wise and knows everything that you need and is able to give you guidance in your life, moment by moment.”
