The altar platform serves as both a symbolic support and a visual element within the ritual, playing a crucial role in establishing the appropriate atmosphere and energy field for the ritual activities. The altar base carries even deeper symbolic meanings, acting as the boundary that delineates the sacred space, setting it apart from the surrounding environment. Its purpose is to create a dedicated area for the ritual, where transformative and sacred rites can unfold.
The platform can symbolize grounding and protection, aiding participants in the ritual by enabling them to focus and shield themselves from potential distractions. It provides a stable surface for ritual objects such as incense, crystals, amulets, and candles. These objects can be placed on the platform, following a symbolic arrangement that reflects the ritual's purpose.
