My bóveda gathers items over time. Things that take my eye, and I think, that would look good on it. Today, whilst attending to my bóveda spirits, I decided it was time for a change (yet again…)
I do this periodically, a kind of ritual simplification. These days, I have intentionally limited my bóveda space to a small cabinet, about 14″ x 12″.
I have experimented with electronic photo frames displaying photos of my dead ancestors, an oil lamp instead of a candle, wooden statues to represent spirits, and so on.
At one time I had a separate bóveda and Eggún, but felt that two separate places only served to split my attention. This left me with a ‘running in circles’ feeling.
So I removed and wash everything, including the cabinet top starting with an altar cloth and set it up anew. I feel good, happy, it flows. It feels like a fresh start and I am loving it.
