This little shrine of mine…

One summer’s morning,

I built myself a shrine.

that I filled with little gifts from the Universe.

and of the love and support I have surrounding me.

A little space where I can show my big devotion to the the truth I have come to believe

whole-heart-ed-ly.

And that truth is,

that no matter how precarious life, and our foot hold in it, may seem,

Love it what will get us through.

Love is what we are here to do.

Love is the answer.

Happy Wednesday, Beautiful Ones !

A shrine is a wonderful idea...and that you built it with your love and the things that have meaning to you will have so much "power" for you to draw from.

I love this idea so much- I have a little shrine of sorts in my studio (two shelves full of happy things) but I'd like one outside, in my garden. Thank you for this idea- I think it's just what I need! You always inspire me so much!! <3 <3

My Queen, I really love the idea of shrines. I collected several books on shrines wanting to make them about ten years ago, but never did. Then recently I won a shrine in the auction for the children in Mexico...I have a small shrine in a box here too for when I start my day. But still I would like to make them. Your special royal shrine is a prompt from the Universe that this is something I need to attend to, whatever this impulse is that is pushing me to acknowledge the divine in a physical, contained way. Wishing you Big Love today and every day, xoO

How wonderful to have found all those heart rocks! The universe certainly lays in wait for you doesn't it? A lovely array of heart felt love in a box here!
Enjoy the day(s)....

Thank you for sharing your shrine. It's simply peaceful just to look at. I collect heart shaped rocks & wood pieces I find. A little shrine would be a great place for them.
