Remember the Lotus

Whenever you should doubt your self-worth, remember the lotus flower.  Even though it plunges to life from beneath the mud, it does not allow the dirt that surrounds it to affect its growth or beauty.  Suzy Kassem. The lotus flower is considered a sacred symbol.  The Lotus symbolizes purity, beauty, majesty, grace, fertility, knowledge and serenity.  The lotus will fluorish in murky waters, pushing through mud and mire.  The petals break through and reach toward the sun, while the leaves stay afloat as they shine in the light.

Symbolically, lotus petals can be found in the chakra symbols.  Each chakra has a specific number of petals, representing ascending vibrational frequencies.  The state of enlightenment is represented by the thousand-petal lotus.

Creating Sacred Space for Meditation

Once you have made a conscious choice to meditate, then the next step is to take action.  If you have chosen to meditate at home, you will need a space where the magic will happen.


We all try to sabotage ourselves and talk ourselves out of things by making excuses as to why we should not do something.  However, once you commit to making meditation part of your life and begin to practice, you will look forward to your peaceful practice.

Choosing a Meditation Room.

Pick a room in the house and declare that space to be your new meditation space.  Speak with your family members if you have family living with you.  Explain to them that by sacrificing this space once or twice a week, they are helping you to achieve the goal of calmness and peace.

If your family knows that you will benefit and that they will benefit by the transformation in you as well, they should be more than happy to accommodate you!  ;)

Creating a Meditation Space.

If the option of having a room all to yourself does not work, do not let that deter you.  Choose a space in a room that is designated for your meditation work. Your own bedroom would work wonders.  Even if you have to get a little "creative", have a designated space just for meditation.

Things You Will Need.

Regardless of whether or not your space is an entire room or a small space in the corner of your bedroom, you can create the space you need for perfect meditation. For this, you will need:
  • A space that is void of distraction
  • A space that defines you
  • A place where you can be comfortable
  • A comfortable floor mat or cushion
  • Amenities that are conducive to relaxation (aromatherapy, mask, music, etc.)


Rhodochrosite - Healed Heart Floor Pillow (Available through our Gallery!)

Choose a space that has minimal distraction, preferably where no phone exists.  Decorate your space so that it defines you in a positive light.  If your favorite color is blue, then a blue yoga mat or comfy blue pillow will be great additions.  If you love to travel for leisure, put up some pictures of favorite places that you have been.

Make sure you are at your most comfortable in your space. A thick floor cushion and a fluffy pillow behind your back are ideal ways to start your meditation practice.  If your floor mat is not comfortable, you will not be comfortable either.

If you wish to meditate to some serene music, play your favorite CD or serene scene DVD in background just low enough to get the impact. Burn some incense or candles (safely of course), or start up your favorite aromatherapy diffuser and you will be all set to go.  A relaxing scent such as lavender is perfect!

Once you have designed your sacred space and begin, you will soon notice how you run there to practice the art of meditation.  It will be so inviting, it will become a part of you and you will look forward to practice after a day of work or play.
