Hi,

Here are some pictures of my altar, and please feel free to upload scans of your sacred place (and it doesn't have to be religious in nature, but it has to be a very special place where you let go of your earthly cares on a daily basis or in a ritual manner):

To what deity/religion is that shrine for? Cat worship of some kind?

I am a Pagan Druid*, my alter represents Nature as the divine.  The lucky bamboo represents the world tree.  The cats and the wolf carving represent  the noble kindred which are the beings we share the Earth with. The crystals represents the Earth herself. The shell represents the sea.  There are offering on there, too, feathers, a silver coin and arrow head.
Edit to add,  I love your alter Born Passion. It is beautiful.

Between my new laptop and new phone can't figure out how to post a picture of my altar. Waah! Both of those altars are beautiful; completely different styles, but beautiful. Next month I'm doing a day long workshop on how to communicate with guides & ancestors, starting with building an altar. Hopefully I'll be able to post a picture of the group altar, because they are always beautiful and interesting.

I'm not posting a picture of my bed!

Seriously though reading the OP that would be it. It's a very special place where I let go of my earthly cares on a daily basis and pretty much in a ritual manner(I always give thanks before sleeping). So my favourite time of the day is when I climb into bed to sleep.

Thank you.

Regarding photos... What I did was I uploaded my pictures on my website, and then used the pictures' addresses as my "Image Properties: URL" on UM. It's important to find out the actual picture's address in order for you to upload that specific picture on UM. Of course, another way is GreenmansGod's method.

Peace.

Thank you, my friend. You're altar looks very special. Do I see a black obsidian sphere? BTW, I'm still waiting for my dragon's blood incense to arrive, but it should be here soon. Have a good evening.

High in the sierras there is this large pool of water. A mountain river fills it. It slides down a large granite rock. My brothers found it many years ago and they took my father. Then  my father took me with them. My father stopped takeing me after my brothers died. But he started to again when I was about 11.  I have many memories of being there with my father and some with my brothers. There is a flat rock that jut into the pool. It is my alter. I go back nearly every year sometimes twice. I have instructions to spread my ashes there when the time comes.

This is it here. The actual rock is to the right out if sight.

I bow to nothing.

I need no altar.

....ok sorry that was jsut being overly dramatic.

I don't have one, never considered the need for it.  the world I guess, existence itself is what I look to for confirmation of what I know.

Yes that is the obsidian sphere, but I do change them out. I should put out the pink granite sphere for the coming pink moon. One of the big clear crystals is in the back.  This is a nice thread, thanks for starting it.
