How to Create a Good Meditation Space

How to Create a Good Meditation Space

Are you looking for ways to create a great meditation space? If so, it’s also important to create a peaceful, loving space when you are engaged in a meditation practice. 

As a meditation coach and trainer, I know how important it is to set up a good meditation space. While you can certainly meditate on a train, in the mall, or sitting at work, the truth is you probably won't be able to access those deeper levels of awareness meditating in this way.

If you have a desire to go deeper, then it will behoove you to create a more conducive space in which to do so.

Public places are fine for a light level of meditation or for practicing mindfulness. For example, you can practice breathing deeply while sitting on the subway or practice connecting with your breath and observing your feelings.

However, this may not be the best place to go into a deeper meditation. If you're looking to expand your awareness and connect with that creative life force energy within and to connect with your highest self, I don't recommend that you do so in public spaces. 

It's All About Energy!

When you are in a public space you are essentially absorbing all of the energy around you. You are opening up your awareness. 

It's very difficult to go into a deep level of meditation when you are surrounded by noise and chaos, not to mention other people's energy.

You really have to be careful that you don't open yourself up to someone else's negative vibe because other people's energy can penetrate your energy.

If you're looking for a place where you can really grow and thrive in your personal practice, you're going to want to create your own personal meditation space.

How to Create a Personal Meditation Space

If you don't have space or room to dedicate solely to a meditation practice, that's OK because you can create a nice space right in your bedroom. This is a great option for people who travel as well because you can meditate in your hotel room.

If you find you lack a meditation space, you can try meditating in your bed with a folded up pillow.

The main goal you should strive for is finding a place where you can sit with a straight spine.

While I enjoy sitting on the floor, I realize that it's not always a comfortable position for other people. Sitting on the floor is a great option if you are flexible enough to sit cross-legged because sitting on the floor is a good way to ground your energy.

If this kind of posture is not comfortable for you, that's OK. You can also try sitting in a chair with your feet planted firmly on the floor. As you meditate, focus on relaxing your shoulders and your back and sitting with a straight spine.

What's really important is your alignment in your posture, during the meditation. 

Meditation Options

  • Sitting cross-legged on the floor.
  • Sitting in a chair.
  • Sitting on your bed with a folded pillow.
  • Sitting on a meditation cushion.

It really comes down to a personal choice in the end. If you are not comfortable, you will not be able to access those deeper levels of meditation.

Sit in whatever posture allows you to drop into that deeper level of awareness. Some people like being elevated and sitting off of the floor while others like the feeling of connecting with the ground.

Meditation cushions are also a good option if you want to sit on the floor but need more cushioning. They're generally priced around $25 to $50 a cushion and you can get them on Amazon. 

The Power of Decluttering

Marie Kondo’s work with decluttering has really taken off and there is a good reason why. You'll find that you can meditate much easier in a clean, clutter-free space because your mind picks up on all of those little things in your environment.

If you meditate in a cluttered space, you will notice you feel different. If you try and meditate or do other spiritual practices in a cluttered space, the energy of your stuff will get in the way.

Believe it or not, our stuff actually has energy and it may even accumulate negative energy. A cluttered space is not a relaxing space.

A cluttered environment doesn't allow you to go as deep and fresh and feel as bright in your meditation practice. 

A meditation space should be clear, clean and inspiring, as well as peaceful, quiet, and private. These are the main qualities that you're looking for. 

When you invest in a nice meditation space, you're actually investing in yourself. Meditating in a nice, clean clear energetic space will be much more soothing and relaxing than trying to sit in the middle of a cluttered space.

As you meditate, you'll pick up on those things in your environment. You activate that internal state of consciousness, as you meditate. As a result, your energy builds up raising your vibration.

This is one of the main reasons why you feel much calmer and relaxed in a spa or a church because you are picking up on the energy in the environment. You are feeling that sense of calm or reverence or sacredness. 

So in conclusion, you can really meditate anywhere. But you may not be able to access deeper levels of awareness in places where there's a lot of activity.

When you choose to sit in the same meditation place; you honor and consecrate that space. 

I wish you all the success in the world in your daily practice.
