This lovely wooden box holds a few essential items that I use in my daily spiritual practice. Choosing the items allowed me to focus my attention on which items were truly important and useful in my practice, and eliminate those which were just decoration and, ultimately, clutter. The box also provides an aesthetically-pleasing location to store items that I may not be comfortable keeping out where anyone may see them or touch them.
- Tarot cards, neatly wrapped in a handkerchief when not in use
- A small beeswax candle in a glass candleholder (I don't usually light candles, but this allows the option if I decide to, and the beeswax also provides a pleasant scent even when not lit)
- A small stone turtle (this does not represent an animal spirit guide or anything like that; I just liked it)
- A bag of dried herbs
- Two tiny Moleskine Volant notebooks - in one, I have written several yoga routines, and, in the other, a few prayers that I often use
- A fabric drawstring bag that contains some polished stones, quartz crystals, acorns, more dried herbs (lavender and mint, which also make the box smell nice), and prayer beads
