For those of you who were curious about my own personal Santa Muerte magick altar, here's a short video of my entire altar and a few up close shots of my primary Santa Muerte altar statue.
Questions and comments always welcome.
Not all Santa Muerte followers have the luxury of being able to erect a permanent altar for our most Holy Saint Death, but that doesn't mean we can't work with the Santa Muerte and make offerings to her. With the help of a temporary or travel sized altar, we can work with the Santa Muerte just as effectively as anyone who constructs a permanent altar. As with a permanent altar, the most important ingredient for building a temporary or travel sized altar is an image of the Santa Muerte.
An altar can be any flat surface upon which religious or spiritual offerings can be made. It is generally considered the point of focus for religious or spiritual ceremonies, and many religions in the world use altars as a basic cornerstone of belief. In Santa Muerte magick, altars can be public or private, large or small, permanent or temporary. Erecting a permanent altar to the Santa Muerte in your home or place of business is the most direct way to invite the Santa Muerte to take an active role in your life, to petition the Santa Muerte, and to thank the Santa Muerte for wishes or miracles granted.
