Awens to All:

Here is a Picture of my Altar:

 

 

On my Altar is Chunks of Burnt Birch Bark that I chipped off of a Birch Tree on around June 10th 2000 that is 3 Km North of Downtown Hiroshima Japan.

There is a Chunk of Glastonbury Wall that fell off on its own and landed right at my Feet while I was walking to see the Glastonbury Tor on June 21st 2006.

And there is a Magic Eight Ball that I found when I was working in a Recycling Plant in February 2007 on the day before I got Hired to work in Landscaping for the first time.

Of course, I have loads of other items on my Altar, each having its own Special Story to it.  I just posted my 3 Favorite Ones.

Re: Personal Altars

love your altar, the fact that you have so many items on your altar that have a story to them really gives the altar a depth that can but only enrich..

Blessed be in love and light

Right.... and this is a marvelous idea for a thread 3x3....

Love to All, Guenn

Thanks for sharing that 3X3, It's always lovely to get an insight into other people's alters! Better still to know the significance of why as well!

Here is my personal alter: 

CalonDraig's Alter

Pretty Spartan, especially since I'm in student accommodation. On it, you'll find a lamp which is burning most of the time in the evenings, and two candles - I'm a flame keeper for Brighid. The plant symbolises my need to always honour the living world, and to affirm my belief in the necessary grounding qualities of soil and working directly with the earth. The leaves are leaves I have had to study over several weeks as they shrivel for part of my course and have become important to me. The knife isn't a knife, it's a folding saw; whenever I take it walking I take it with me and if I see any fallen wood that's in good condition I salvage it and use it to make nice things on my lathe!

That's mine in a nutshell!

Lovely to see other people's alters!
