Meditation Garden

A meditation garden can be created indoors or a meditation garden can also be outdoors.
A meditation garden can be a simple or ornate area depending on where you live. There are no rules saying that a meditation garden has to be a particular size or contain certain elements. It is your meditation garden and can be exactly how you want it, there is no point creating a meditation garden to meditate in if you don’t like it as it will not benefit your meditation practice as well as it could. So why would or should someone create a meditation garden?

It is important to each of us that we have a private place to be able to collect out thoughts, reflect and relax. Being as close to nature as we can, will help enhance the experience. Have you ever noticed the way you feel when you are walking a trail in the forest. There is a sense of peace that comes from sitting on the beach and feeling the sand and listening to the water. You can have a space at home that will allow you to do the same by creating a meditation garden.

Whether you live in a large city with limited space or in the middle of the country you can create a meditation garden, a place for you to relax anytime and meditate. When you are creating your meditation garden it is important to remember that your garden needs to be a reflection of how you view peace and happiness as it is meant to be your very own personal space. With that being said, your garden can be filled with plants or with rocks and water or a combination of both.

It is essential in finding the right place for your meditation garden. If you are limited with space, it is highly recommended that you double dig. This is a process where you dig a hole in the ground two times the depth of your spade. This makes it easier to plant your greens close together, so that you can plant more. Double digging leaves plenty of room for your greens roots to grow and for water to drain.

Looking for help with creating your meditation garden, you can turn to the internet. There are numerous sites that offer design plans, recommendations and services to help you create your meditation garden. Deciding if you would like your garden to be built based on Japanese style of meditation garden, or dedicated to a particular season. There are gardens that are perfect for any climate and that is because they embrace different elements like a rock or wood or water or a blend of these elements.

Greenery is very important in your meditation garden as well. The motto with greens is the more the better. The reason for this is because nature motivates and inspires us. Nature allows us to connect with our inner selves easier by waking up our deepest emotions and feelings.

Your meditation garden is meant to be a place that will enhance your meditation process. It is your special place where the elements of nature and the elements of our soul are allowed to dance and embrace. Creating your own meditation garden will be extremely rewarding.
