Your meditation space is sacred. It’s just yours and it is supposed to bring you peace. At some point your space may not hold the same vibration it once did, and that’s ok. But it’s important to bring new life to the space…or set up a new space! Listen to your heart…your intuition will tell you what you need for this time in your life.
How do I pick a meditation space?
You may not have the room for a dedicate meditation room. But there are ways to create a space that is just for you. It may be temporary, it may need to be pulled out each time you come to stillness. But there are ways to create the environment you need in any size, shape, or place you need. Your meditations space will be a reflection of you, your journey, your healing, your peace.
When I first pick a space, I like to first take time each day to sit in a room, spot, corner. Sit in silence, sit in stillness, close your eyes and breathe it in. Then open them and look around. What is this space telling you? Honestly, you can stop, drop, and breathe just about anywhere but this place is going to be your sanctuary so take some time to really sit in the space and let it speak to you.

What do I put in my meditation space?
This one is so hard to even describe because it will be so personal to you. You can add crystals, oils, photos of warm sunny beaches. What ever you feel drawn to. I love finding things on my travels and bringing them back to my space. It’s so unique. All I can say is that your intuition will tell you what you need and your intuition never lies.
5 Things That Will bring Light and Life to Your Space
Actual light. Open the blinds. Burn candles, if that’s your jam. Soft glow salt lamps are amazing too!
Check in on your 5 senses. What do you smell? What do you hear? What do you see?…Chances are if I am smelling leftovers, or dirty diaper…I’m not going to be in the mood. I can handle a certain level of outside noise…but this is only because I have been doing this so long. Please do not be discouraged if it frustrates you that you cannot focus…I’ve been there. Turn on some calm music, even your baby’s white noise machine!
Speaking of sounds! I love the little sound bath collection I have curated. I am so excited to share more with you! I started with bowls and have added a few items recently. This chalice and gong are bringing me so much joy and healing!
A new rug or meditation cushion. Nothing can refresh a room faster than a rug. I have several. I mix and match, I create layers, I switch things out. I just love mixing colors and textures. I have quite the collection now, but I have been known to pull things from other places in my house.
Take out anything that is no longer serving you. From crystals and decor, to candles and incense. If you are no longer called to it then this is your permission to remove it!
Cleanse and recharge your crystals. Running water can clear any negative energy store in your crystals. The tap will do but a stream is even better! Placing your stones in the sun, or moon light will recharge your crystals. Make this a regular habit. It will rejuvenate you and your space!
So take some time to sit in your space…soak it all in. What is calling you? What isn’t? Now before you get up and start changing all the things, I encourage you to write it down. Make a plan. What do you want to bring into this space? Remember this is your space…it does not need to look like mine, in fact, it probably won’t!
I’ve seen large meditation spaces, and I’ve seen mediation corners. And you know what is so rad about it? They are both sacred, they both work wonderfully, they both fulfill their purpose.
Light and Love,
