I simply wrote what I heard onto a pad of paper in my lap with eyes closed – meaningful, multi-stanza verses in mere minutes. I was unaware of each poem’s theme until I transcribed it later word for word. Each day brought new and wondrous discoveries about the world beyond our five physical senses, incredible wisdom, and messages of hope which I share with you in this blog.

Poem #346 - Your Sacred Space

From Whitefish, Montana

You eat your food for sustenance.
You read your books for knowledge.
But there are things you cannot gain
From nourishment or college.

The things that you can gain
From meditation and from prayer
Will give you sustenance far greater
Just by sitting straight-backed in your chair.

Open all your chakras –
Your seven energy transforming centers.
These are special places
Through which your Life Force enters.

This Force it flows more freely
When all these chakras are not blocked.
By simply sensing them as open
As with a key they are unlocked.

Then draw the Life Force to you.
See it enter from the top.
And like a golden river
Let it flow downward without stop.

Then keep it moving through you.
Sense its warmth as it does flow.
Let it spill over and surround you
Like an egg shape that does glow.

Thus encased, sit still and bask there
In this space you did create.
This sacred place can be your refuge
When from your cares you need escape.

Use this place to nourish you.
Find strength here and return
Whenever you need balance
Or have things you want to learn.

This energy you’ve summoned
Is always there for you to take.
It’s your ever-present Source of strength
Once its acquaintance you do make.


  1. Great poem with emphasis on the power of meditation and inward focus...

    "Open all your chakras-your seven energy transforming centers." Find ways to unblock your chakras and allow this energy to flow...

    I love the various ways in which "chakras" are defined. The words make you realize how important it is to be in tune with your body and mind...

  2. Thank you, Council of Poets, for today's instructions on how to create our own "sacred space." Opening the seven chakras and asking the Life Force to flow through us, we are provided a safe haven of energy within which to find solace in times of heartache.

    May we each find refuge and strength within our "sacred place" as we meditate and pray this day...
