If you want to create a personal space to cultivate calm and improve your meditation practice, then this article is perfect for you!
As we have room to eat and one to sleep, why not have a place to relax and dive deep inside ourselves? It is not necessary to have another room, just a little space next to your bed or a corner in your living room.
4 ideas to create your own meditation sanctuary:
1) Choose a space and make it comfortable
When you’re meditating, it can feel good to have some sunlight on your skin and a breeze coming in through a window. Therefore, choose a place near a window or a balcony, if possible, and let natural light get in. You can make it comfortable and cozy by adding some pillows, just about anything that makes you feel right!
2) Personalize your meditation space.
Time to decorate your sanctuary. Fill the room with pleasing and calming objects to your eyes that can make you feel happy. Studies show nature is soothing and healing, so bringing some plants is a really good idea. You can also use incense, crystals, and candles to make it more relaxing. Just make sure to select objects that mean something for you, don't add unnecessary stuff, because it will clutter the space -and that's just what we want to avoid, whether mental or spacial.
3) Keep it clean.
Having a clean space with no distractions can boost your meditation practices. Make it as minimalist as possible without objects that can deconcentrate you. Moreover, avoid using devices. Keep electronics out of your sanctuary.
4) Make a music playlist and relax
There are many relaxing music playlists already made to accompany the moment, or you can make your own with the music you like, instead.
If you feel peaceful and happy when you are in, your work is done; you have created the perfect sanctuary.
You can also create a soothing atmosphere with a sound bath!
