There is a 30 day Pagan journaling challenge for the month of September set up on Instagram and I thought it would be fun to do it – and would get me back into the swing of things as well.
And back into blogging here as I answer the posts. (I’m not much of an Instagram person.)
Today’s question is:
If money were no object, how would I set up my home to support my practice?
First, I would move to someplace with more privacy: lots of land and no neighbors. Quite possibly I would simply buy land and have a house built.
The grounds would be set up with the quarters marked. A pond and waterfall in the West. Evergreens, holly, and boulders in the North. Wind chimes and flowers that attract bees and hummingbirds in the East. A fire pit (there are some really gorgeous ones out there!) in the South (and maybe a dragon statue). I would also have an outdoor altar – most likely in a gazebo.
The house would be in the center.
As for the house itself…
I might have a room (or wing?) dedicated to magic, including a library, just so all my “stuff” would be in one place (likewise, I would have a craft room that not just held all my craft stuff but was a workspace as well).
And in the rest of the house, nothing would be hidden. There would be shrines to my deities in every room. (For instance, one to Hestia in the kitchen.)
Also, there would be a huge vegetable garden with a shrine to Demeter, and a flower garden with one to Persephone.
In short, every bit of the property and house would be designed with reverence for Nature and the Gods.
