Creating Your Meditation Space

Paul Jerard

Visitors: 448

Each of us will approach this issue differently. For some of us, the particular place where we mediate daily is very important. Some people decorate the place where they meditate to resemble a special place, a holy place, or a retreat.

If you choose to create a meditation space, it must be free from clutter. The reason being, clutter can stir up negative feelings, which disrupt your daily sessions. An open space, that is free of clutter, works best for most of us.

Some meditation practitioners take special care to practice in areas that are free from telephones and communication devices. To continue with this point, many of us need to unplug ourselves from technology. Unless you are on call 24 hours a day, you should leave communication devices aside during your practice.

If you practice a form of walking meditation, the idea of creating a special place for meditation, may seem to be a waste of time. In fact, meditation can be practiced at any time, in any place, but the meditative experience itself will vary with your practice and surroundings.

Motivation is a life-changing force. When a practitioner realizes the benefits of meditation, and becomes motivated enough to create a sacred space for it, chances are that he or she will continue to practice for years to come.

One advantage to making a place for your meditation practice is when circumstances change. Sometimes, our sleep patterns change or the weather becomes rough. At that point, it is nice to sit in a quiet place and meditate in a special place.
