Meditation is one of those things. You know how beneficial for your mind and body it is – it decreases stress, puts you in tune with your thoughts and feelings, and provides new perspective. It helps you focus on the present…the list truly goes on and on. It’s also one of those things that tends to get pushed to the bottom of the To Do List, despite how important it is to mental health. Putting yourself first can be difficult, which is why creating a space you love to meditate in can push you to do it, even for a few minutes every day.
Pick a space in your home – it can be a corner, a section of your backyard, even a closet if you want to get creative with it, and fill it with things you love. Here’s what we would do, if we were uplifting our ideal meditation space.
Choose Crystals Intentionally
Those who believe in the benefits of crystals think that the crystals choose you. Visit your local holistic wellness store and hold each crystal in the palm of your hand. Close your eyes, and tap into what you’re feeling. Are you energized, relaxed, inspired? Maybe you don’t like what you’re feeling, and that crystal might not be for you. Choose which crystals speak to you, and keep them in your meditation space to provide those feelings again.
Clear the Space With a Sage Mist
When beginning a meditation session, it’s important to clear the space of negative energy, invite in positive vibes, and set an intention. Heritage Store Aura Smudge is a smokeless alternative to a sage stick and can be used to purify a space. Mindfully spray your space, stating what you wish to focus on for this session.
Place Items That Have Meaning To You
This is a place for you to feel like the most vibrant version of yourself, so place a few items that have nostalgic meaning or are indicative of who you were, are, and who you want to be. Maybe that’s a ring you grandmother gave you, or a trinket from your travels. Having that positive energy around you while you meditate will aid in bringing you even more in tune with yourself.
Utilize Rose for Your Heart Chakra
The aura of the rose is often connected to the heart chakra – it enables the heart center to open and release any tensions or stress held there. Working with your heart chakra can open your mind up to love and new possibilities. Spritz Heritage Store Rosewater Mist onto your skin and hair to awaken your mind to the rose, and mindfully massage Rose Oil into your pulse points for a sensorial start to your practice.
