Last October I decorated my daughter’s bedroom. Her bedroom is next to what was once my home office. I stopped using it a few years ago, and it had become a space my daughter used to paint, do crafts and express herself through art. She completely trashed the room, paint on the carpet, the desk was a mess.
Since she is now much more able to look after her belongings, I thought I would redecorate this little room and then decide what I wanted to do with it. So, I painted it and put in new carpet at the same time.
It’s been three months since it was done, and now I have finally decided what I want to do with it. I am going to make it into a meditation room. Tomorrow we are going window shopping for some ideas of how to decorate it, and I’m really quite excited.
I want a space we can all go to just be, when things get too much or we just need some quiet time to reflect.
So, what do I put in a meditation room?
I love nature so there has to be some plants about. As you all know by now, I love my candles and my music and my singing bowls. I must incorporate all of these as well as a mediation table, maybe a salt lamp, cushions and a mat.
Because I feel that meditation can be viewed in different ways, for me I try to meditate a few times a week. I think it connects well to my mindful practices and they compliment each other perfectly. For others it will be different, and I don’t feel that there is a right way or a wrong way to practice meditation.
I guess that means there is no right or wrong way to furnish my meditation room.
I will keep you up to date with my progress
