 How to create a special place for yoga, meditation or me-time
 :: by

Want to create a quiet, inspiring space for rituals like meditation or yoga — or just a place in your home that helps you feel more connected to what’s meaningful in your life?

Creating your own sacred space lets you express your very human need for ongoing spiritual nourishment. Whether it’s at home, at work or in some “third space” such as a hotel room when traveling, everyone can benefit from creating places where they intentionally choose what surrounds them.

Your sacred space might contain a single object such as a statue, sculpture or private altar you deliberately place in a special location, or it may be an entire room or garden or even your entire home arranged with furnishings, objects and décor that have special meaning for you.

“It’s a place to be reborn and renewed every day — a place to find rest,” says Las Vegas interior designer Laura Rogers. “It’s about drawing yourself inward and getting closer to what’s in your heart.”

Rogers offers these tips on using décor, lighting, sculptures, altars, furniture and more to tangibly connect with the sacred or spiritual side of yourself.

Start by defining what “sacred” or “spiritual” means to you

If “God is in the details,” as the saying goes, the places you live and work can make your spirituality more a part of your everyday life. And that can go a long way toward helping you feel more centered, grounded and happy. Your definition of what’s sacred is as individual as a fingerprint. Yet unlike a fingerprint, your personal ideas and expression of what is sacred can evolve and change over time.

Decide what you want from your sacred space

Before you begin, think about what you’re seeking and decide how you want to use it. Do you want to:

  • Create a private sanctuary for meditation and prayer, or simply for quiet reflection?
  • Find serenity while you’re at home?
  • Call up the same peaceful feeling when you’re away by visualizing your home space?
  • Designate a shared space for connecting with others, or for ritual or ceremony?
  • Co-create a family altar that continually evolves with spontaneous contributions from each of you?
  • Deepen intimacy through regular family time in a special place?

Find inspiration in what you love

Make your sacred space personal. Choose what tastes, sounds, smells, looks and feels good to you. Choose objects that give you energy, inspire you or help you get into the ritual of your meditation, yoga, prayer or other sacred practice.

Also consider using a screen, curtain or other boundary to make your sacred space feel more contained, relaxing and personal.

Consider your personal reasons and occasions for wanting a sacred space

Creating a sacred space can be something you do once in your lifetime or every day, alone or with loved ones. Get creative with these ideas:

Seasonal rituals to celebrate and commemorate:

  • Changes of season
  • Movements of the sun, moon or stars
  • Endings and beginnings of any kind
  • Anniversaries and special occasions

Specific, one-time events:

  • To consecrate a new space or transform existing space
  • To celebrate a relationship or a success
  • To clarify an important decision or change
  • To be more present or conscious in any aspect of your life

Where should you locate your sacred space?

A single object can increase your awareness of your spirituality and connection with what is sacred to you. An entire room can invite you into your deeper self. You can create your sacred space:

Where you can see it — across from your bed, desk, sofa or kitchen table

As a small part of any room — whether it’s a single object, an arrangement or altar

Wherever you have room — if not an entire room, then a corner of a room (abamboo screen or shoji screen creates an ideal space), or even a closet

In a secluded area — such as a spare room or a corner of your bedroom reserved especially for meditation

In the garden — out of doors, when nature’s voice is what you need

What kinds of items should you include in your sacred space?

This is your personal space. Knock down walls if you need to. What speaks to you, inspires you, moves you?

  • Mementos: personal items that are meaningful to you
  • Talismans: symbols of peace and safety
  • Visual art: your own, your friends’, postcards of famous works
  • Photographs of loved ones and special places
  • Statuary: traditional symbols of divine and protective energies
  • Stones and shells that hold memories from special places
  • Candles and incense
  • Color, light, texture, fabrics, carpets, mirrors, fountains, chimes
  • Plants, flowers and other living things
  • Musical instruments and favorite calming music or ambient music CDs
  • Personal divination tools such as the I Ching, The Tarot, the Runes
  • Sacred texts or words of wisdom — from any and all faiths

Use your power of intuition

Whether your life is urban, suburban or rural, whether your home is a sprawling estate or a studio apartment, you can create a special place for simple reflection, traditional meditation, ritual and ceremony. “It all starts with a desire within me to make something beautiful,” says Rogers. “I want to make the sacred space in my house as comforting as I possibly can. I might have been inspired by a picture in a magazine, or something in a movie will trigger my thinking. I’ll go about finding another piece of furniture to do that or rearrange something and it just happens.”

Remember that this space is yours. Honor your heart’s desires. Trust your intuitionto show you where to put it, what to include, how to use it — and see where it takes you.

If the soul is not purified then large amount of spiritual energies can harm us because they tend to activate dirty energies that we have inside. Master Choa Kok Sui teaches that dirty energies come from two main sources. Outside sources and inner sources.

Outside sources are food we eat, water, air and other negative influences that come from outside. Inner sources come from us and are negative emotions, words and actionss toward others and towards our self. Master Choa Kok Sui called this character building. So when practitioners purify themselves with time soul becomes more purified, larger amount of spiritual energies can come in and higher degrees of spiritual development become possible.This why in every serious spiritual practice they have strict rules what to eat and how to behave.

So when we meditate and do our spiritual practice properly(which includes purification) we actually become better people or to be more precise better servants of divine. This ensures that we don’t just get our freedom but we also help others survive, have more beautiful lives and reach spiritual freedom as well.

In higher degrees of spiritual development we reach a stage of expanded consciousness also known as nirvikalpa samadhi in Indian tradition that I have described before, when you are in a constant bliss all the time. Then after a body dies you continue your journey in a spiritual world and don’t have to incarnate on the earth again(at least for a long time). This Is because you have fulfilled what you came on earth for.

If you are interested in more information check out these books . They explain all of this in very simple manner and allow a person to understand this in an objective, scientific matter and confirm all of this with simple experiments. “Miracles through Pranic Healing” and “achieving oneness with a higher soul” .

People generally take intensive meditation courses to accelerate their spiritual progress, or to move more quickly through difficult issues they are experiencing. This raises the question, is more meditation actually better for accomplishing this? The answer is, “it depends.”

For some individuals, an intensive retreat can be quite productive, and they leave feeling very clear, peaceful and recharged.

However, for others, an intensive period of meditation can be counter-productive, due to…
1. Raising one’s energy vibration too quickly, to a level that they are not prepared to handle, and
2. Stirring up way more inner toxins than the individual can effectively process and release.

What determines the difference? There are many complex factors determining whether an individual is sufficiently prepared for an intensive or not. The most tangible of these are:
1. The state of ones nervous system and energy system – is it reasonably strong?
2. How physically grounded the person is.
3. How mentally and emotionally healthy one is.

Although this is not always easy to determine beforehand, one helpful criteria is the person’s lifestyle. Do they regularly engage in activities like physical exercise, physical work, Yoga or Tai Chi, etc.? And is their overall lifestyle reasonably healthy – non-toxic?

For those considering doing an intensive retreat, I suggest you take into account factors such as this before signing up.

But whether or not a person does an occasional intensive, I have observed that, for most people, about 20 minutes a day produces, good, steady progress.

This meditation is for organ and cellular regeneration, it can also be used for shape shifting, age regression, and altering your appearance. This may seem far out, however, you have to take into consideration that the body is constantly replacing cells every day. In fact we completely replace ourselves once every 7 years. This might give you an idea how long this may take. I have personally seen growth rates of 5 to 15 mm per year for bone and nerve tissue using hypnosis alone. However in this meditation I will be accelerating time to make the growth occur much faster.

Ram Dass interviewed on the BBC in 1981. Ram Dass tells his story. Ram Dass is spiritual not religious. The entire universe is lawful in its unfolding. It’s not by chance that each event occurs. It is a set of lawful interactions. It is best to listen for your part in the play, not the chooser. We have taken a human birth to have a series of experiences which are vehicles for our awakening out of the illusion that we are exclusively separate. The journey of awakening goes from seeing yourself as separate to seeing that this “you” is only relatively real. You are separate on one plane, but going up one level, you see that we are not separate.

When you read this you will filter it through what you know, what you think you know, because there has been a long history of meditation tradition that is taken to be true, because of thousands of years of tradition. I take exception: what people say about meditation is 99.9% bulldust, and those who profess to teach the ‘tried and tested’ techniques are book learned themselves and pretending to others.

Meditation instructors will be all up in arms about that, but not surprisingly since I adamantly disrupt thousands of years stale old hand me downs where each generation is scared pantsless of straying from security of tradition, but I claim that it’s all dead dusty old stuff. All dried up like the ink it is written in.

Meditation is momentarily alert, alive and aware. It isn’t rigid like a perfect posture, repetitive like a hypnotic mantra or controlled like a slavishly obedient, yet inherently resentful, mind.

Meditation is captured by the word ‘sati’ which means awareness or to observe. We are already aware and we are already watching. That’s what it is to be alive. We can’t teach it because we already know it. Teachers will tell you what to watch, what to chant, what to visualise – but the meditation is self awareness, and the knowledge of self.

You are not a static thing that is captured and retained as knowledge that can be taught – you are living, being, thinking and changing from moment to moment. One does not observe anything stationary or repetitive. One is the witness to life, which is vital and dynamic.

The meditation does away with the repetition of habits and reactions ingrained in us by upbringing. It dispenses with the comparisons so popular throughout school, career, society and the spiritual status quo. It relinquishes all standards of religious rote and dictatorial society. It’s disruptive and disobedient not because it’s rebellious, but because it’s truthful. Some few will appreciate that.

If person really wants meditation, they will know the truth about themselves and will not to be able live according to any traditional norms or institutional paradigms anymore; rather, they will live in truth to themselves. That is the essence of transformation.
