You can meditate anywhere with no tools, tunes or atmospheric aids. You only need to be still to start. I love to engage my senses in everything- my home, work and yes my Meditation practices. People are always asking me for my recommendations and these are my favourite tools to help me get the most out of my experience.
1) You can use a mat or cushion, you can lay down on the floor…but take a look at this incredible seagrass and mango wood chair…maybe you might sit still a little longer with the help of this cozy piece!
2) I like to practice Meditation by candle light and this is my favourite candle. The Dayna Decker Candle is my treat to myself. I love the smell of the botanical oils. They burn forever and you will love the sound of the crackling wood wick. They are not cheap- but I would rather have one fabulous, healthy candle than a bunch of chemical-laden cheapies any day.
3) Of course we don’t need music to Meditate but there are numerous benefits to Guided Meditation and when I choose that method this is my favourite CD. It is so well done and Deepak Chopra is so in tune with how to direct the body to heal.
4) You may not know this but your body temperature does fluctuate during Meditation. To avoid the distraction, I like to keep a wrap around my shoulders. I love cashmere, it really maintains a comfortable body temperature no matter what weather I am out in on the show. I often wear Canadian designed Black Goat Cashmere and this pashmina is just perfect as a meditation wrap or throw.
Would making a soothing space make you more likely to practice?
Love to hear from you as always,
