Any altar, shrine, reflection space or sacred set-up can be a testament to your shadow work. It can act as a way for you to hash out your emotional responses to the things you have been through and the memories you are processing. Releasing, receiving, surrendering and reaching a final, peaceful understanding of what you have been through - all of that stuff is worthy of the altar. You can use symbolism of any kind to represent the places you have been, the place you inhabit now and all the joys, fears and deep yearnings which fill you. Your altar can be a physical exploration of what is internal and intangible. How exciting is that?!
