Beautiful and healthy
Looking to make the most of your outdoor space? A meditation garden is a great way to enjoy growing flowers, herbs, fruits (if you live in a warmer climate) and vegetables while giving himself with the perfect space to clear your mind and return to the time I presented.
The ancient Chinese art of Feng Shui (translation water and wind) is based on the uninhibited flow of qi, or vital energy through space. Importance is placed on the use of certain colors, shapes and elements of earth, water, fire, wood and metal. The keys to qi flows freely through space, however, they are harmony and balance.
Another important point is to arrange your garden in a way that is pleasing to you, and carry out their feelings of tranquility. A source approach to drawing half its water space is a way to add both the element of water to attract birds and to make your beautiful garden. You can choose to arrange the stones on the floor in a gateway to its source, and also leads to their plants.
If you want to enjoy the tranquility of sitting meditation in your garden, you can, of course, sit on a weak spot on the floor, or you can add a seat at your favorite garden area where you can take in the smells and sounds as your body and mind relaxes.
Meditation does not have to be done with legs crossed (unless strictly following a specific tradition); you can sit comfortably in any way you choose, you can always keep the spine elongated and can relax your body physically.
While the sounds of nature cause a sense of harmony themselves, you may want to add a wind chime if the sound of it that brings peace. This can be wood or metal, which is element speaks for this purpose. The sound of a flowing fountain is also a very nice sound to many.
When choosing what to plant in your garden, select herbs, vegetables and flowers that make you happy, or enjoy eating. In this way, you can enjoy tending to them, and this process, when done consciously, it can be a meditative experience of his own. The selection of plants in a variety of colors that complement each other can also bring balance to your garden.
If you do not have a space in your backyard for a garden, you can create a meditation space and vegetation filled almost anywhere, even inside. You can grow your plants in containers and pots in a backyard, or in a designated room in your home.
Creating an indoor garden meditation is absolutely possible with a little creativity. You can add hanging vines, incense and even hanging crystals, if desired, to accentuate the purpose of meditation room.
Meditation can be done anywhere, at any time you do not need a specific space. However, if possible, the creation of a “sacred space” for you to truly feel at peace can be one of the most rewarding projects that take on this year.
