The Alchemy of Intention (From the Introduction)

Where intention goes, energy flows. Because of how energy functions, we are each engaged in co-creation with the life force. If you want your life to be sacred, you need to set the intention for it to be so. Setting an intention is like speaking to the Divine through a megaphone: It gets the message across more clearly. This is the true secret behind creating a home sanctuary. Altars and shrines are incredible spiritual tools because they anchor our feelings and thoughts so we become very clear and specific about what we want. Ultimately, whatever we focus on appears in the material world.

Creating a sacred space in your home is an opportunity to connect your intimate environment with the realm of the Divine so that your soul is supported and nourished and has freedom to express and flourish.
