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.

Why Trying New Things Will Help You Slaughter Resistance

I painted for the first time the other day. It was a beautiful mess of colors. Certainly nothing anyone with an appreciation for artist talent would admire, but the colors blended, and I created something that wasn’t in this world before. I channeled energy from the universe into shades and shapes matching the reflection of this luscious planet.

 

It was not the painting I viewed as the reward; it was the act of painting. I started something new, and that always takes guts. I triggered new thoughts, emotions, and experiences by dipping and smearing the brush. It’s the very root habit of creativity.

 

Are you afraid to do something new? I thought about painting for 10+ years, but I was always too in love with my ego to try it. I knew the result wouldn’t pass the eye test, and I thought it would make me feel like a failure. I lived most of my life hiding from anything I didn’t think I would be great at. This is a poisonous route to take. Are you drinking the poison, too?

 

When you try something new, it’s the baseline for opportunity. If you remove the ego, you also remove your judgments. Instead of scolding yourself and feeling not good enough, you can admire the act of creating in itself. Have no mind on what the output is. The act of creating in itself is the divine habit. It’s the portal to a happy and free soul. It’s the feeling of truly being alive.

 

You must understand that if you create, you will evolve as a creator. Your creations will evolve alongside you. At first, they may seem stupid, or ugly, or worthless, but every great creation is the result of a thousand trials that weren’t so beautiful. Nonetheless, each one of those trials was supplied with energy by the previous trial. The final creation cannot be what it is without the blunder of fuckery along the way.

 

This is how life is. You are a creation. Every thought of every experience of every moment of every day is a continuation of your ultimate creative manifestation. This moment, just as the last, is a pitstop for fuel on your mission to the space of ultimate high. To become one with your purpose, passion, and spirit, you must be willing to eat shit on the bottom line. Be proud of not knowing what the fuck you are doing. Be happy to make a mess, test the waters, bust open your wounds, and attack the next challenge. There isn’t one happy or free being that didn’t start by licking scum off the ground.

 

The lower you start, the higher you can go. The more you show up, the more fuel you will create. Colors will expand to new shades. Words will turn into libraries. Voices will echo through the infinite canyons of the heavens.

 

At the edge of your seat, you must create. You must rage through your doubts. You must explore. You must push forward. You must smear the blood on the canvas.

 

There are those who will never arrive due to fear and conformity. You are not one of those.

 

You are a habit of creation.

 

You are the fire of a torch that has been burning resistance before time even existed.

 

You are of the highest power.

 

If you enter the battle with honor, you’ve already won the war.

The American Dream

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.
