6 Must-Haves for your Meditation Space
So, you’ve fallen in love with your meditation practice and you’re ready to take it to the next level. With meditation comes a focus on mindfulness, and many teachers of the technique encourage a focus on the physical space around you. You’ll find yourself looking around and taking it all in, really centering yourself in the room. If the space you use to meditate is bringing anything less than positive vibes, then it might be time to invest in your experience.
We rounded up a list of items you can introduce to your space to improve its feng shui, add some visual appeal, and give you a happier, more comfortable meditation experience. Let us know your favorites, and happy meditating!
Gorgeous tapestries have long been popular in meditation spaces and yoga studios. Focus in on the beautiful colors and patterns during your practice and enjoy the visual addition to your space. There are so many styles available, so you’ll be able to find something that perfectly matches any existing decor scheme.
A bit of greenery can immediately bring new life into any room. Adding a potted plant brings an intention of care and nourishment to the space, and certain plants are known for their air-purifying qualities. Plus, they’re pretty darn photogenic.
Not only will this piece add a touch of modern decor, it’ll improve the quality of your meditation practice in a physical sense. The Crystal Cove meditation pillow is designed to bring more height to your seated pose, keeping your spine in proper alignment for longer periods of comfortable meditation. It’s made with natural materials like a buckwheat hull fill, so it’s healthy for your home and the environment.
If you’re not privy to the supposed healing magic of certain crystal pieces, a simple search on Google or Pinterest will point you to plenty of beginners’ guides. Once you learn about the uses and meanings behind different crystals, choose one that speaks to your needs. For example, Quartz can ease feelings of anxiety and Opal is known for boosting inspiration and creativity. Bring your chosen stone into your meditation space or keep it close to your body to harness its healing powers.
It’s hard not to feel relaxed when your space is filled with the calming scents of lavender, white tea, and mint. Light an aromatherapy candle and feel the stress melt away.
Eliminate negative vibes
Lighting a smudge stick of sage and other dried florals can cleanse your space of negative energy. We recommend burning sage before you sit down on your meditation pillow in order to create the perfect ambiance in the room.
