Here are 5 must have spiritual tools: Many people choose to create a space in their home that allows them to reconnect spiritually, a personal oasis or spiritual sanctuary, where it’s possible to release the cares of the world and reconnect with Spirit. Creating a personal space for quiet reflection is a great way to enrich your life with a higher sense of purpose and meaning. Every sanctuary is highly personal, but there are several tools that can enhance the receptivity and positive energy of any sacred space.

5 Must Have Spiritual Tools

Prayer Banners

A prayer banner is a simple, inexpensive way to increase the positive vibrations of your space. Prayer banners are not only beautiful, they serve as a reminder to stop and focus on what matters. There are prayer banners specific to many different faiths and systems of belief. Find one that resonates with you and place it on the wall of your sanctuary or anywhere it benefits you to have such a reminder. It can be used as a focal point for meditation, or just as a simple daily reminder to pause and reflect.

 

Pendulums

Pendulums are typically made of crystal, wood, or metal. They are used for a divination technique called dowsing. The pendulum is used to help answer questions, find lost objects, and to heal the energy field. Each user connects with the chosen pendulum by meditating and testing the direction of the swings to determine a “yes” or “no” answer. Pendulum mats and pendulum charts can be used to assist in the use of a pendulum. Some pendulums have a container to store essential oils, herbs, or flowers.

 

Candles

 Candles are a must have in any spiritual sanctuary. They have been used as spiritual tools for thousands of years by virtually every religion on Earth. Different colors can be used to symbolize different spiritual properties. For example, green can be used to promote good health and draw abundance. Candles can also be scented with oils and used for aromatherapy. Many herbs also have specific spiritual properties and candles can be tailored to your specific rituals and needs.

 

Incense or Smudge

Use the sacred smoke of incense or smudge to cleanse and protect against negative energy. Sage smudge sticks are often used to cleanse a room or the whole home. Start in the far corner and work your way around the room pushing the smoke into every corner to purify the space’s energy. Purification with smoke is another ritual used in a variety of cultures and traditions. Spiritual protection and purification make us more receptive to pure spiritual energies.

 

Gemstones or Crystals

Stones and crystals are beautiful to look at and they can be used for a variety of purposes. Many stones enhance mental clarity and promote healing. A simple clear quartz crystal can be used to cleanse the aura and protect against negative energies for example. Like candles, stones can be used for a variety of purposes and customized according to your needs and beliefs. Stones can be worn, held or displayed on an altar. Some place stones within fountains to facilitate the flow of cleansing energy.
