Are you ever unable to find peace in your home? You are not the only one. It’s an incredible way to find calm and peace in your chaotic life. However, for many of us living in large cities, finding peaceful green spaces can be difficult.
A meditation garden can be a wonderful way to connect with nature while also being in a peaceful, tranquil environment. A garden is a great place for meditation and prayer. It’s surrounded by beautiful foliage.
Even if your home is small or doesn’t have an outside area, you can create a meditation garden. You need to create a space that is safe and relaxing where you can reconnect with nature and de-stress.
Multifunctionality is possible
You might consider making your meditation garden multifunctional if you have a larger outside space. You will find comfortable seating, beautiful greenery, and relaxing water elements in this space. It also includes a grill that can be used for barbecues and other events.
Move it indoors
While not everyone has access to an outdoor area, most people have a place in their home where they can relax and enjoy the company of their houseplants. You can add a chair and pillows to your area and fill it with plants. Take a few minutes each morning to take in the surroundings.
Accept the Changes in Seasons
Even though trees and plants can’t be always green, they add some life to a house’s facade, even when they aren’t leafless. You can make your lawn a quiet and comfortable place where you can enjoy the changing seasons and the crisp air.
Add Soft Lighting
To provide soft lighting when the sun sets, you should add string lights to the tree you love. Although they are brighter than string light, cafe lights don’t feel as harsh as flood lights or fixtures that attach to your exterior. These cushioned chairs can be used to relax after a hard day or morning.
Get Fully Traditional
Zen gardens have rock and sand features that are often softly drawn in the sand. Although this garden is not easy to maintain, the time spent drawing in the soil and tending the flowers can be a great meditation practice. A professional meditation gardener is the best option. They will be able help you design your space and can also assist with maintenance.
Include statues and other figures
A fixture can be a great way to deepen your meditation practice. You can add small statues or lanterns to your garden to enhance its aesthetics and give you something to focus on while you relax.
As your base, use a deck
A great way to make a meditation garden is to surround a deck or porch with plants. You can relax in a lounge chair or on a deck, and the plants will allow you to connect with nature.
For seating, use a Hammock
Imagine yourself sitting under the trees, enjoying a gentle breeze and swinging in a hammock. If you don’t own any land, you can hang a hammock between the trees in your yard. However, you can also use a portable hammock to relax in a quiet area in a park.
Make the most of the space you have
It can be difficult to create your own outdoor space, especially if you don’t have a yard or landscaping. A small patio or balcony can be used as a meditation garden. This allows you to feel closer to nature and avoid having to travel far.
Can’t get outdoors? You can make your own mini meditation gardens indoors using a kit, sand, stones, and a shallow tray. Kits can be found on Etsy or other major retailers. They usually come with a tray, sand and stones and tools to draw/clear the sand.
