  • 1. Seven Things You Should Consider Having in Your Meditation Room
  • 2. Meditation helps you to develop a more effective mind as well as maintain a state of relaxation.
  • 3. Therefore, meditation is a practice that can be beneficial to just about everyone.
  • 4. If you are serious about meditation, then you might consider devoting an entire room in your house to practicing it.
  • 5. Having a meditation room can do one of two things: cause a sense of calm to be brought over you the second you enter it or serve as an encouraging reminder to meditate more often.
  • 6. The latter is very important because it is all too often the case that people begin a meditation journey only to abandon it a short while later.
  • 7. The downside of abandoning your meditation practice is that you will never be able to fully master the art, because every time you veer off track, it will take you a little bit before you are back in the swing of things.
  • 8. You need to make meditation a habit; it is an art that needs to be practiced each and every day.
  • 9. If you do decide to create a meditation room, then there are seven things that you will need to take into consideration.
  • 10. #1: Cushions
  • 11. Most people prefer to sit on the floor when they are meditating.
  • 12. However, since many homes have hard, wood floors, it is to your advantage to set several pillows down to make your seating arrangement more comfortable.
  • 13. Meditation pillows don't have to be anything special; they just have to provide a sufficient amount of padding to soften the strain of sitting on a hard surface for a prolonged period of time.
  • 14. #2: Incense
  • 15. Incense is a great tool to help you relax while you are meditating, and it is pretty easy to come by.
  • 16. You can purchase incense from most quality Asian or Middle Eastern supermarkets.
  • 17. Before you start buying incense in large quantities, however, it is a good idea to test-drive one or two sticks to make sure you really enjoy their scent.
  • 18. Lavender is one of the most commonly preferred scents.
  • 19. #3: Prayer Table
  • 20. A prayer table is a good thing to have in your meditation room because you can place incense and other meditation items on top of it.
  • 21. People, who meditate for spiritual reasons, often enjoy putting images of God or Buddha on their tables.
  • 22. Or, if you are not religious, you can put images of your friends and family on the table along with your incense.
  • 23. Including these images is a good way to remind yourself of why you are meditating in the first place.
  • 24. #4: CD Player
  • 25. Many people enjoy listening to soothing music while they meditate as it can help to greatly enhance the mood.
  • 26. It is often the case that meditation beginners have a difficult time relaxing.
  • 27. Therefore, since music can be very influential on people's feelings, listening to the sounds of calm music can help a lot with getting people to distress and unwind.
  • 28. #5: Candles
  • 29. Since many homes have harsh incandescent lighting, it is a good idea to meditate by candlelight, which is much gentler on your eyes.
  • 30. Also, the soft glow of an open flame can really help to create a sense of calm.
  • 31. You can use candles of varying heights and set them on your prayer table.
  • 32. If you are going to use candles, it is recommended that you use seven of them, as seven is regarded as being a perfect number.
  • 33. #6: Peaceful Images
  • 34. As was previously discussed, it is a good idea to include spiritual pictures or pictures of people that you love during your meditation sessions.
  • 35. In addition to these types of images, you can include other images that conjure up calming emotions, such as images of rainforests, flowing streams, or the ocean.
  • 36. #7: Flowers
  • 37. The final item you may wish to include in your meditation room is a vase of flowers.
  • 38. Freshly cut flowers give off a lovely aroma and they are very pleasing to look at.
  • 39. The combination of scents from the flowers, incense, and candles will make for highly relaxing atmosphere that you may never want to leave.
  • 40. Meditation is an important skill to master, and the creation of a meditation room in your home will serve as a constant remind of the importance of meditation, and you will be encouraged to meditate more often.
