I did a presentation for high school girls of faith. They are looking forward to graduation and then college. With that brings excitement, joy, some sense of fear of the unknown and adult life. This of course applies to all of us. We all can have a sense of excitement, joy and fear of the unknown regardless of our age or stage in life. With that in mind, we discussed how to create a space that invites the spirit. A few of the ideas we discussed:
1.Surround yourself with images of your faith, be it artwork, sculptures or quotes. They serve as a visual reminder of what makes us strong.
2. This does not have to be expensive. You can be create your own artwork by being creative.
3. Keep a journal of your spiritual experiences. This will be a gift to you when you find yourself in a difficult time. Choose a color and style that brings you joy.
