These sacred spaces also encourage quietness, a precious scarcity in our busy, everyday life. So roll your sleeves and lets explore 5 easy to execute tips for the perfect sacred space at home.
Choose a corner or a nook in your home
To create an inspiring for your soul sacred space you don’t need an entire room. The cosy, snug feel of that nook in the bedroom, the corner in the attic or the window seat are the perfect location to set the base for your sacred spot. Remember that this is your self-nourishment space, so don’t hesitate to claim a favourite spot of the house, anywhere that will set the tone for going inward. A beautiful view or simply a relaxed corner of the house will help you switch off from the daily routine and problems and transfer you on an individual journey with your deepest intentions and thoughts.
Create comfort with beanbags or soft cushions
Now that you have chosen a spot, the furnishing needs to provide comfort and relaxation. The most suitable type of seating is either cushions, or beanbags in cream colours to relax the vision. Try the ROOMOX Premium Lounge Beanbag in white or light brown, which will not only add elegance to your space, but will ease your meditation state as well as support your back.

Create an alter with spiritual cluster of accessories
The decoration and accessorizing of your sacred space comes next. It is important that this spot gives away a spiritual vibe and feel, instantly welcoming serenity and peace within yourself. On a small table place a cluster of items such as scented candles, incense burners, essential oils, objects like crystals and semi-precious stones, which are known for their great energy conducting qualities. Place some tea light candles on the ODENSE lanterns or the VEJVE Tealight Holders to illuminate the space with soft light patterns, creating a zen atmosphere.
Infuse energy with plants and flowers
Plants and home flowers make every space alive and peaceful, also increasing the oxygen levels of the room. Purple is the colour symbolizing spirituality, so place small sprays of lavender that will not only adorn your sacred spot with their beautiful, subtle purple colour, but will also aromatize the surrounding with its calming, pleasant scent. Now you can truly relax within you.
Seed your love with memorabilia
