Creating a Meditation or Sacred Space in Your Home•
Posted on February 22 2022
Creating a meditation or sacred space in your home will help to foster a relationship with your higher self, as well as, create a sense of clarity and peace in your life. You do not need anything fancy- just need a little imagination and a designated area.
I teamed up with my friends at my favorite store, Muddy Roots, in Murphysboro, Illinois to demonstrate how you can integrate some beautiful plants into a small sacred/meditative space in your home.
The ladies at Muddy Roots explain that "Adding plants to your meditation space is ideal as they naturally promote a sense of tranquility and reduce stress. Bringing nature inside, especially in the winter months can give you such a mood boost. The also help eliminate air pollution and naturally add oxygen to your space. All of which add to your overall well being."
Plants have been a part of spiritual practice for a very long time in many ways. Plants vibrate and radiate an energy that is uplifting to our own. Yogis have stood with their backs against trees to ground themselves, plants are used in the ancient Chinese practice of feng shui, and Buddha was seated under the Bodhi Tree when he achieved enlightenment. It just seems natural that we should bring nature into our own meditative/sacred space.
This beautiful plant is the Maranta leuconeura, also known as, the Prayer Plant. It is Native to the tropical forests of Brazil. The leaves of this plant fold in the evenings, as if in prayer, this is how it received its name.
Monstera adansonii, the Swiss Cheese Plant is wide spread across South and Central America. It is relatively easy to take care of and is defiantly eye catching.
The Air Plant, or Tillandsia xerographica, is never placed in soil. It needs bright, filtered light. If you are growing them indoors and the air is dry, you will need to submerge the plant in water for 2-3 hours about every two weeks.
