A Beginner’s Guide to Building an Altar
This guide is purposed to help you get the support you require for your own spiritual experience. For the beginner or even for the seasoned witch, in this guide you will get some new idea and technique that will help you learn as much in so far as voodoo and magic goes.
For the beginner, one thing that needs to be known in so far as the practice of magic goes and the need to discover as much in what lies in energy and developing clairsentience, one thing that should come to mind first is the need to create your own altar. And as far as altars go, these are basically those scared spaces which often are too personal. Your altar can be of any kind as far as exposure goes as there are those who choose to leave them out in the open while others choose to have them shielded from the eyes of the general public. Over and above this, it is to be noted that they can take as much space as you may be willing to dedicate as such you will find some having such elaborate setups for their altars while for some, they do well with just a simple display of the same. This be as it may and for whichever approach it is that you elect to go by, the one thing that you need to appreciate when it comes to altar setups is that this space is all about you and the needs that you happen to have for the practice of voodoo or magic. By and large, looking at these facts, for you to create an altar that will indeed serve to enhance your practice of witchcraft, ensure that it is one that feels as personal as you can and not one that gets you the feeling that it is another thing to take care of. The next question to ask as you go for the setup of your altars is that of the purpose for which you will need the altar as such making it important to know of some of the purposes of altars as have been highlighted below.
One thing that needs to be as clear is that when it comes to the purposes served by altars is that they happen to be serving lots of purposes generally in the spiritual journey and the experience of the practice of witchcraft. In so far as the use and the purposes of altars go, one you need to know that there are those who use the altars as spaces for them to show reverence to their deities. Still there are those who want to commune and connect with their ancestors and as such will make use of the altars to serve this need in their experience. Altars can actually be as well used to serve both these, acting as places to worship the deities and connect and commune with the ancestors or better still for neither.
