Meditation Spaces

April 30, 2010 at 9:09 pm 2 comments

In our daily lives it can be hard to find a little time to clear our heads and re-center.  Daily meditation can help us relax and focus, and even increase our energy throughout the day.  Creating a meditation space in your home is easier than you may think.  Your first step is to find a little area that is free from distractions – a quiet place where you can clear your mind and de-stress.  A peaceful view out a window and natural light are beneficial, but aren’t necessary.  You can create your own beautiful view using your favorite artwork.

Once you find your quiet place, focus on making it your own.  Add a table and place your favorite objects on it –  anything that  inspires you – seashells, smooth stones, a photo of your loved ones, a glowing candle garden, or a special sculpture that you love.   Having a plant or fishbowl in your meditation area is also recommended to add living energy.
Gradually add the things that you love to your table, and eventually you’ll have a collage of beautiful things that are uniquely yours.    As you pass by your meditation area throughout the day it should help you feel inspired and relaxed.


Many people think that you need to sit cross-legged on the floor to meditate, but in reality you just need to be comfortable.  Place your favorite comfy chair in your meditation space, or add a big fluffy  cushion if you prefer sitting on the floor.  You can even use your bed as your meditation space – just be sure to sit up straight!  Your posture and a straight spine will help the energy flow through you while you meditate (and your back won’t hurt when your done!)

Soft music or guided meditation can help you ease into meditation as a habit.  A CD player or an MP3 docking station is a good addition to your space.  Play soft, soothing music and let your mind wander, or try a guided meditation series to help channel your energy.  “Meditation Moment” by Dudley Evenson provides guided meditations for each week of the year.

    I have turned my spare room into my little retreat and this is where I meditate. It has a great view, some of my favourite artwork and my favourite big comfy chair. I don’t really need the pleasing aesthetics whilst I am meditating as I use guided meditation for which I always close my eyes, but the pleasing space never fails to help me relax before I get going.
