How To Create a Meditation Corner in 10 Easy Steps!
Meditation is something that is so vital for our well being. So it’s important to have a dedicated space in our homes to practice it. Here I’ll share some meditation corner ideas that you can incorporate right away!
Everyone has different lifestyles, so just use what works best for you in the present moment. Remember nothing is set in stone, what you may like today may not work later on…and that’s o.k., just be here now!
Choose what feels right for you in this season of your life. We are always evolving, so don’t be afraid to try something new or to get rid of something that is not longer serving you.
I’ve looked at different items on the internet that can best suit your needs to create your meditation corner. You can just click on the pictures, and you can see where you can purchase them.
Alright friends, let’s begin!
When we meditate, we have to make sure that we are completely comfortable. Everyone meditates for different amount of times. For some it may be only 10 minutes, others perhaps for 2 hours. So make sure that your body feels fully relaxed here.
Depending on your preference, you could use a meditation cushion or a chair. There is no right or wrong way. Personally I have both. In the morning I like to sit on my meditation cushion, this position also helps me wake up. At night, I prefer a chair, since my body is more tired I like the extra back support.
2. Small Table
Next to your meditation cushion or chair, you can place a small table. This is very helpful since it can hold different items such as:
When deciding which type of table to get review the following:
Height- For example if you are seating on the floor and you have a statue that is sitting on a table that is too high, after a while it may hurt your neck to be looking up for to long.
Also, if you are seating on a chair, you’ll want your table to right next to you so you can easily reach items if needed.
Length- How many items are you trying to place on top of it. For example, if you have different crystals that you want to put there, will you have enough room?
On the other hand, you may have a very limited space in your room and a smaller table will suit you best.
Since you’ll be using a corner of your room, get a measuring tape and that way you can calculate how much space you’ll need.
You can always bring nature inside with a wide variety of plants. When creating your meditation corner, see if you will be next to a window where the plants can get direct sunlight. If not, make sure to select plants that do well in shaded areas.
You can have your plants either hanging from the ceiling, wall or on the floor. Remember to water them regularly as needed. If you don’t have time to water plants, there are also some self watering devices that you place on the pots and you don’t have to worry for days.
So even if you don’t have a green thumb, you can still have some green in your life!
There are a wide variety of candles depending on your preference. There are some specific to help clear out certain chakras with special scents and colors, and there are others that are just white and help bring a sense to serenity to your meditation space.
When using candles be extra careful, and never leave them unattended. When you are done meditating make sure to blow them out.
5. Himalayan Lamps
Having a Himalayan lamps is an easy way to bring relaxation to any meditation corner. I personally love having mine next to me when I meditate.
They come in so many different designs and sizes, that it truly depends on your preference. Also, you can have more than one! I’ve seen some meditation spaces with multiple lamps and it truly feels heavenly just looking at them…and this is relaxing even before the meditation begins!
I love crystals! Honestly I was very skeptical at first, but later on I happened to come across a crystal book while I was waiting to get a massage. Then I decided to give them a try and I’m glad that I did. They truly help calm the body and mind.
Not everyone is into crystals. So if this is not you, feel free to incorporate something else that brings you joy.
When we meditate we are going through an inner journey. Some of us might be meditating only to relax, others might be wanting to clear up some emotional baggage and go deeper into our spiritual path.
Having a journal or a notebook to write down your experiences is a great way to heal yourself, and to also let out new ideas come out.
You can use your journals for:
- Collect inspirational quotes.
- Write down how you want your day to unfold…your mind creates your reality 😉
- You can also write down any worries that you may have.
- Also, if you are angry at someone or something, this is a good way to release that anger.
- Poetry, be free to express your self!
There are so many wonderful books out there, that it would take pages to write them down. So instead I’ll just share some categories that can help you find something that will be beneficial:
9. Statues/ Pictures
There are some that love to have statues of different deities on their shrine, altar table, etc. There are different ones depending on one’s spiritual beliefs.
Not everyone will want to have a statue. You could instead use inspiring quotes or some nature pictures that really make you feel relaxed and encouraged.
Since you’ll be creating your meditation corner, an area rug is a good way to help define this meditation space.
Yes, you can place your meditation cushion and table on the floor. However, a rug can help bring all the decoration elements together so they all look that they fit together.
There are also some tapestries or round beach towels that can be used to showcase your meditation space.
Conclusion for Meditation Corner Ideas
I hope that these meditation corner ideas will inspired you to create your very own sacred space at home.
Also, don’t be afraid to try different colors that you have never used before. We all go through changes in life, so it’s natural that our tastes in colors will vary from time to time.
You may need some very strong colors, or you may want to use relaxing neutrals and pastels. Look at different colors, then close you eyes. Which color(s) feel right for you right now? I can tell your from personal experience, that now I like colors that 10 years ago I would have say I would never use!
Also, once I started to use these new colors it just felt right. Try it out, a new color might be just what you need right now.
I wish you lots of inner peace in your new meditation corner. May this new space be a place where you can go for refuge from out fast paced world. Remember this is your space and you get to make the rules here.
