14 Actionable Tips for Creating Your Sacred Space

The words I type come from my sacred space. Without this space, the majority of my writing, ideas, and creativity would remain unbirthed, or at most, suppressed. Ignorant of what a sacred space even was, let alone how to utilize it to maximize the mind and create happiness and freedom forever, I lacked energy, happiness, and success.

 

After my introduction to meditation and a morning routine (The Miracle Morning), my sacred space began to evolve. It’s no secret that having a special space to create can throw a switch in your creative brain. Any artist, writer, or creative of any type will tell you they receive special inspiration from one particular creative space.

 

Without a structured plan, I found myself returning to the same spot–a place to think and observe the areas of life I most wanted to develop. I closed the door to outside distractions for complete solitude and peace. By having a relaxed and peaceful physical space, we allow ourselves to open the door to a relaxed and peaceful mental space.

 

All the magic happens in your sacred space, where you enter a state of relaxation and peace. In this state, the clutter of stress and resistance is slaughtered and released, and the magic tree of ideas starts to take root. When these ideas enter your calm and peaceful mind, you are in a clear enough state to observe, analyze, and take action toward manifesting happiness and creativity in ways beyond your most rampant imaginations. A sacred space is essential if you wish to create the life you love. Without it, I would probably still be working in the construction industry, pounding whiskey every night, and you wouldn’t be reading this now. Without a sacred space, Steven King wouldn’t have written Carrie to get his start, nor the 90+ books after Carrie. It’s worth giving a shot. You’ll find a new love you never knew existed.

I’ve created an extensive checklist of ideas to implement when creating your sacred space. You can get it for free below:

Have you ever meditated or practiced mind strengthening? When I look back on my journey of creating the happy and free lifestyle I have today, there has been nothing more of an anchor than the habit of meditation. And, I can attribute my current freedom lifestyle to the vision I created from 1 meditation in particular.

 

Why meditation? Well, meditation is the baseline for quieting the mind and eliminating distraction. Once we can accomplish that, clarity and focus start to take over. Whenever the distraction gremlins are having a disco party in my brain, I turn everything off, step away from the rage, and simply meditate.

 

You know that feeling you have after a REALLY REALLY good nights sleep? The crazy energy and the feel-good lightness of the body? That is the feeling that a simple meditation unleashes too. But, instead of needing 8 hours of rest, it can be as simple as 5 minutes of deep breathing.

 

It’s a magical reset that is available anytime, to anyone.

 

With a meditation habit in place, it’s easier to build the walls of your happiness empire.

 

When I first started meditating, I had no idea what I was doing. I signed up to download a meditation starter kit created by Kim Nicol (called 5 Mindful Minutes) and did 1 meditation per day, for 5 days. They were all 5 minutes long, and came with directions to “write down how you feel” at the end of each meditation.

 

So, I did. These were my results:

  • Day 1: Intriguing & Confused (I was in awe at the effect of the meditation on my day)
  • Day 2: Blurry (when you open your eyes, the experience is often blurry and distorted at first. This has become one of my favorite parts of meditating.)
  • Day3: Distracted-Green Colors (meditations aren’t always perfect- in this case I couldn’t concentrate at all and was distracted by my thoughts)
  • Day4: Revived – Stuck in a Daze (I felt consumed and stuck to the chair, like I was one with the earth. The feeling was indescribable)
  • Day5: Calm – Eyes Better / New Feeling / Blue Colors (Have you ever been in the hospital and hooked up to morphine? That is how I felt!)

 

There was something mystical about it, and it allowed me to really sit and clean out my raging lunatic status stress hole of a mind.

 

Shortly after, Kim sent me a custom meditation that she created specifically for me to visualize my future. She prompts certain questions that navigate your mind into seeing what the future will become. Every morning, I would light incense, close my eyes, and allow this guided meditation to take me into a world of bliss. A world where all of my surroundings were at peace, and I was free from career, debt, and stress. It was perfect.

 

After doing this meditation every day, my mind started to actually become one with the vision. Situations and lifestyles that I meditated about actually started manifesting in my life. The life I have today is exactly what I used to visualize during meditation.

 

I set my mind to believe in this happy and free lifestyle by visiting it every day, and now that vision is 100% live and breathing.

 

In the Sweet Ass Journal, mindfulness is one of the daily practices that I teach to help you build your freedom empire. The journal is my exact structure for creating and maintaining a freedom lifestyle, but I wanted to share just the meditation slice with you today.

 

Whether you have or haven’t meditated before, I’m certain that it’s the best thing you can be doing to strengthen your mind.

 

I wanted to give you access to the exact meditation Kim created for me that helped me change my life.

Take a listen and see if you can visualize where you want to be in the future. Allow her INCREDIBLE and soothing voice to guide you to your dream life.

 

Just do it once, and see how you feel. If you like it, do it again. The more you allow your mind to connect with your dreams, the faster they will become reality.

 

Manifesting Visions

The American Dream (Poem)

The American Dream
It’s as depressing as a dimple on your butt.
If you behave you’ll get a nickel you can spend on some stuff.
And in time you’ll get a dime if you impress your boss,
So you can buy another drink just to numb your thoughts.
If you behave a little longer you’ll get some more stuff,
And you can upgrade to brick from that old straw hut.
You can put it on a loan if you impress the the bank,
and then share it online to up your social rank.
And on Monday at work you can wish away the week.
Cause when the Friday rolls around you are misery free.
But when you wish away your week, you wish away your time,
You fucking wish away your family and your friends and your ONE life.

 

Congrats you’ve been elected to the Hall of Shit-Your-Pants-and-Die.
Be careful what you wish because you are bringing it to life.

Awareness vs. Nuts on Your Chin

Hi space-apes! Busy day?

 

What is the rush? Why is EVERYONE constantly freaking out? I’m a victim on frequent occasions…

 

We are all raging multi-tasking lunatics.

 

Are you going to allow these high-stress situations to play a role in the rest of your life?

 

Is completely losing your cool in an overwhelming rush of anxiety and sweat going to make all of your problems and situations better?

 

If you pause and think about it, what is the reason for burning your energy and bowing down to a worse-case-scenario mindset?

 

You wouldn’t let a distracting stranger on the street come set his fat ball-sack on your chin, so why do you allow the stress gremlins to party all over your pretty face?

 

What is SO AWFUL that you must yell and frown at, criticize, and curse everything around you?

 

I do it too. We all do.

 

Why should everything have to suffer because we aren’t strong enough to judge a situation for the beauty inside?

 

There is a lesson in everything.

 

Situations don’t have to end with nuts on your chin.

 

We don’t have to judge from a negative scale.

 

One breath is powerful enough to birth a pause in any amount of madness, and these pauses are the building blocks of the Savior we know as Awareness.

 

When you are aware, you are in a position to think, react, and make decisions that root the artillery necessary to destroy the “world-is-ending” mentality.

 

Your awareness is the catalyst for the inner belief that you CAN become and accomplish so much more in this beautifully composed masterpiece called life.

 

In reality, the world is NOT ending – species are.

 

The world is only fighting to rid of parasites that threaten the beauty of her existence. She is fighting the soldiers of negativity like a cancer.

 

Only us that are aware will understand this movement, and it is the awareness that will position us to unite and truly discover what it means to be free. We can fight for every moment and bring back the purity and teachings of all situations.

 

We can grow from these teachings.

 

We can conquer every moment and eliminate stress.

 

YOU can conquer every moment and eliminate stress.

 

So whoever you are, and wherever you are, be fully aware.

 

BE ALL IN, ALL THE TIME.

 

Dedicate your energy beyond measure to your awareness and the return will be infinite.

 

Be confident there is light in all situations and that you own the upper hand to whatever stress, pain, or discomfort you may be feeling.

 

You have the power to decide and control the state-of-mind you live in.

 

The situation is ALWAYS yours.

 

When you are dedicated to yourself and your awareness, the fight for happiness will flow in waves to all those around you, and they will add their magic to the dance.

 

They will be aware and powerful beyond reason, and they will pass the cup too.

 

We all need the water. It symbolizes humanity in unity and peace for each moment.

 

Our moments.

 

Your awareness in each breath is a drastic force in the quest for harmony. It is much bigger than you.

 

When you understand awareness, you have the tools to be free.

 

When you use these tools, you are free.

 

Be all in, all the time, or the nuts will dominate your chin.
