How To Create a Meditation Room

Those people who are more serious about their meditations should designate a special room for their meditation practice. This special room should give them a sense of calmness and peacefulness so that they could stick with their practice.

To create a meditation room that achieves an empowering and relaxing meditating environment, set it up using various meditation supplies. This should add enhancement to the room and make it very special.

Meditation Cushions.

Most people sit on the floor to do their meditation practice. However, many houses have hard cemented floors which are not always a better idea. It is advisable to use meditations cushions. These cushions are similar to throw pillows with a softened padding.

Sitting impacts are minimized especially during an extended meditation practice. As much as possible, purchase several cushions. This is important in case you are considering a group session in the future. Meditating for over fifteen minutes can cause muscle strain on the lower part of your body due to prolonged sitting.

Here are some specialized Yoga cushions made specifically for meditation. As you can see, they come in a wide range of color and shape options.

Meditation Incense

This is an amazing meditation tool which helps you to feel relaxed during your meditation practice. You can buy incense from various Middle Eastern or Asian supermarkets, and also online. I have pictured a small selection below for you. Before buying a whole box of incense, try a single stick first and to feel it effect on you. Personally, I ADORE Myrrh – it is absolutely my favorite incense.

Prayer Table

One of the first considerations to create a yoga meditation room! Setting up the room similar to other countries like India, Thailand, or Japan can be done. People can put the incense and other essential meditationn artifacts on the prayer table. Images of Buddha or God can be also placed to aid them during meditation. Non-religious individuals can put their family photos with little incense holders on both sides.

Music Player

This great tool can help people achieve a true meditation state because of meditation music such as Baroque meditation music which helps in influencing the feelings of people. Most people really find it difficult to achieve a state of calmness when starting out with their meditation practice.

Seven candles

Most household lights like florescent or incandescent lights are harsh. Under these lights, people can find it very hard to meditate even when their eyes are closed. It is recommended to meditate under the light of seven candles. These candles must be placed on the prayer tables with varying heights.

Peaceful Photos and Pictures.

These are reminders for people why they are meditating. A true sense of tranquility and peace can be achieved upon entering the room. Other pictures can include animals or nature-like scenery from a flowing brook, a rainforest, or a calm ocean. Again, choose something that really appeals to you and will help to put you into a meditative state.

Flowers.

Fresh flowers are good accents in meditation rooms. Nothing is more calming and relaxing than smelling the scents of newly cut flowers. Unique fragrance coming from fresh flowers and incense can entice the mind in achieving a state of calm.

Benefits of Having a Meditation Room At Home

Discontinuing your meditation practice will not lead to successful mastery of the art of meditation itself. Each time the individuals restart, they will again go back to zero. But if you are able to create a meditation room, then you will tend to use it and meditate more frequently. Try to create a meditation room that feels really special to you.
