Sacred Space in the Text

Sacred space in the text? There are one zillion texts that people can find sacred space in, so what do I mean? It’s not that text. The text I mean is your phone. Texting. Find sacred space in your phone via texting.


By stopping right now! Noticing where you are and what you are doing, and texting it to an accountability partner.

Stop! State what process you are beginning.

Drop! Notice what are you feeling? Drop down into your heart. Now, what is your intention?

Text! Send it to an accountability partner.

That creates a moment of sacred space, each and every day. If you program it into your calendar to “Stop, Notice, and Text”, you will be able to become present to the situation at hand, state your feelings honestly, and move on into the next movement with grace and transparency. This is sacred.

Do you have someone you can be a Stop-Notice-Text accountability partner with? Or, can you text yourself?

Tell me what you think! I look forward to hearing from you.

  1. What an interesting idea. I’m unfortunately rather behind with being chained to an electronic leash. My cell phone is old and I don’t text very much. But I love the idea of awareness, and as Jamie said, mindfulness, especially to the point of being accountable to someone else.
