I would like to share a shrine/altar dedicated to the Divine Feminine in her gentler aspect that I have in my bedroom. The altar is against the north/east wall, and the image is of the Hindu Goddess Lakshmi. The bowl with water placed on the purple candleholder also serves for burning the essential oils – I hope that is fine?
The altar cloth is white crochet, with the shapes of flowers that remind me of swastikas.

I love the picture you have of Lakshmi Lucia and the flowers are lovely touch too. Thanks for sharing your photo with us.November 7, 2017 at 5:15 am #20295
Beautiful, Lucia : ) I like the crochet pattern as well! Also neat how the frame of the photo matches the altar itself. Feels nicely put together.November 7, 2017 at 5:15 am #20296
Beautiful Lucia! Really elegant and certainly feels like something that emits the feminine energy.November 7, 2017 at 5:40 am #20303

Very lovely Lucia!November 9, 2017 at 11:21 pm #20434
Very pretty, Lucia. I like the complimentary soft and warm natural tones of the wood and brass and the overall harmony.November 12, 2017 at 10:07 am #20548
I really like the feeling your shrine emanates Lucia. It feels uplifting and sacred even looking at the image. Those brass items are very nice and have a more ‘ancient’ feel to them than modern candle holders, vase etc.
It’s interesting that you can sense something of the energy and being with which a person created something, and I love what you’ve brought from yourself to this shrine. It makes me visualize you placing the items there with dedication and sincerity 🙂 Thanks very much for sharing.November 13, 2017 at 3:14 pm #20579
That’s interesting Laura that you can “feel the person” behind an altar. Now as you said that, it is pretty obvious to me as well! 🙂
And you also made me think of all those items there, and actually, each one has a little history behind it, whether due to the way I acquired it, or who gave it to me, etc… The Lakshmi image for example I found about 6 years ago while living in the U.S. and going through some turbulent times. I just “fell in love” with it and decided to have it on a shrine one day. 🙂 Or the brass vase was a gift from my mom many years ago, as well as the tablecloth, etc…December 4, 2017 at 7:35 am #21083
I really like the altar, Lucia!
Do you have that image of Lakshmi somewhere online where you can see it in detail?December 4, 2017 at 2:21 pm #21086
