An altar is used in space clearing to create a symbolic representation of the focus for the ceremony and an anchorage for the frequencies of change it is designed to bring about. This increases the effectiveness of the ceremony enormously.
Begin by laying a white tablecloth on the table you will be using for your altar. Ideally use a brand new tablecloth, or at least one that has never been used for anything else before. Between space clearings keep it with your space clearing kit rather than just throwing it into a drawer with mundane items.
The next item to lay on the altar is the altar cloth. They come in a range of sizes (large, small and miniature) and a range of colours. But the most popular colour by far is white. It also happens to be the most difficult to make. There are only eight weavers in Bali who are skilled enough to create them.
When to use a white altar cloth
White is the combination of all colours in the visible spectrum. Made of cotton silk interwoven with gold metallic thread and small bursts of colour, the weave of these cloths reflects this unique quality.
White is used in the space clearing ceremony to bring in the frequencies of clarity, simplicity and purity.
Clarity: For situations where clarity is needed in order to make decisions and move forward in life
Simplicity: For situations where simplicity is needed to unravel a situation that has become too complicated
Purity: An important aim of any space clearing ceremony is purification, so it’s easy to see why using a white altar cloth is such a popular choice. Many religions use white as a symbol of spiritual purity, and it’s also widely associated in many cultures with the quality of cleanliness.
If you are new to space clearing and are not sure what colour to use, choose white.
When to use a white colourizer
There’s no need to use a white colourizer if you’re using a white altar cloth. This would be an unnecessary duplication. But you can certainly use a large or small white colourizer with an altar cloth of a different colour if purity, clarity or simplicity is just one of the focuses of the ceremony.
For example, if your main focus is prosperity and you need to gain more clarity about how to improve your financial situation, an excellent choice would be a purple altar cloth to bring in the frequencies of prosperity and empowerment, with a white colourizer to highlight the frequency of simplicity.
