Revival is defined as a recovery, a renewal, or an awakening, but the emphasis of this article is on renewing one’s interest in spirituality and connecting to our inner sanctum. The recovery of our spiritual strength and vitality is important for fulfillment and self-actualization. For revival, creating and using a sacred space is essential.

A sacred space is not physical place, but rather a setting or environment where we can bond with our soul. It is one that is dedicated for a specific purpose. Our sacred space is one that we regard with profound reverence. It is one we wish to keep secure and safe from distraction, disturbances, and discomfort.

To create a sacred space, we need to able to set aside time where we can be alone with our thoughts. While any physical place can become our sacred space, it is crucial that the spot is quiet and isolated from anyone and anything that will cause a distraction. Instrumental music, scented candles, essential oils, crystals, natural items, soft lighting are a few things you can use to establish an ideal atmosphere. A secluded, out-of-the-way spot outdoors in nature (preferably near a water source or feature) would be perfect.

After we have created our sacred space, it is important that we use this sacred space regularly in order to renew ourselves, which will ultimately bring serenity, bliss, and contentment. An essential technique while employing our sacred space is slow, deliberate breathing with our eyes closed. The continued, gentle and steady breathing allow us to relax, so that we are able to disconnect from our external, physical world and unite with our inner world. The profound peace and calmness we experience allow us to release any extrinsic chatter. When we use our sacred space with this mindful breathing practice, we revive our spirit.
