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 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.
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…
