How to create a sacred space for meditation
Creating a sacred space for meditation, at home for yoga or simply to practice stillness is very beneficial. Home meditation will bring you peace and tranquility in a familiar place. Enjoy the feeling of being safe and comfort. Definitely, this is a powerful way to connect with your inner self and enhance your meditation techniques. However, there are some easy tricks you can follow to get the best of it.
Pick The Best Place in your home that suits your proposal.
One important aspect is to choose a place that is free of distractions such as daily tasks, works or electronic devices. Also, take into consideration choosing a place where people are not likely to interrupt (the living room for instance is not the best option). Think about a whole room or even a corner of a room that doesn’t get used frequently, a place where you feel inner peace immediately. Once you have decided the place, keep it sacred and use it only for rest, yoga, meditation and quiet time.
It is the most challenging aspect of home meditation. When you enter a sanctuary or a yoga class, it is easier to disconnect completely as you leave your phone outside, your things-to-do list, and all other responsibilities. Try to follow the same rules. It is not easy but it is very important to get good results.
Add comfort and inspiration to your sacred space.
Make your sacred space personal. Some people like to stay minimalist in decoration in order to avoid distractions. But you might want to incorporate images of Buddha, candles, incense or mala beads to add inspiration. Also, you can use a meditation pillow, cushion, singing bowl, an altar. That’s perfect either while it is meaningful to you. Trust your intuition to choose the place, to choose what to include and see where it is taking you.
