One of the primary rituals I do throughout every day is to bless, thank, and send love to all the objects I encounter in my daily life. As strange as this may sound, it’s important to remember that everything you encounter is comprised of particles, energy, and elements that are as alive as those that comprise your body, and that everything is sentient in its particular way. You have a living relationship with everything you encounter and the quality of your interactions has an impact.
One of the ways that people in every setting can honor the sacred as part of daily living is to create an altar for their home. An altar need not be elaborate or expensive. It is a place in your home that you designate as a place of honor and respect, a place where you take the time to acknowledge the spirit of your home, thanking it for the gifts it offers you, and recognizing that it is part of the same life force as you.
Along with gratitude practice, one of the most powerful practices we can engage in an ongoing, daily way, is to offer blessings to all we encounter. This includes blessing the spaces we enter or inhabit, the people, animals, other earth-kin we encounter along the way, the gadgets we use, the furniture that supports us, the cars we drive—the list is endless, as well as the subtle beings who collaborate and participate with us all the time.

One of the important practices of Spirits of the Urban Sacred is to honor the life that enfolds and embodies all the spaces we enter on a daily basis. For example, each building has its own Spirit, its own qualities and tone. In addition, each room has its own ensouling or embodying Spirit, its own qualities and tone. Add to that the fact that we touch each space with our own qualities and tone whenever we spend time there, so we are in constant interaction with the Spirit of wherever we may find ourselves.
