Meditation Table - What to Put on it

A meditation table is a beautiful piece of furniture that can be used to create a dedicated space for meditation. It can also serve as a shrine or altar and can contain objects that have special meaning to you.

Meditation Altar: What to Put on it

Creating your own meditation table, or “altar,” is a spiritual practice and should be done with love and intention. Start by defining what your goals are for the space. Is it to manifest your dreams, de-stress or simply provide a space of peace and tranquility?

Selecting the right items for your altar will help you to achieve these goals. The items should touch you, uplift you and hold meaning for you.

You may wish to include an image of a sacred person or animal, or a statue of a god or goddess, depending on your beliefs. Using items that appeal to each of your senses, such as smell and sound, will also help you to find calm, focus and balance during meditation.

Smell: Burn incense, candles or use essential oils to create a soothing ambiance before and during your meditation. Some favorites include frankincense, sandalwood, and ylang ylang.

Sounds: Play relaxing music or a guided meditation, add a small tabletop fountain, or use Tibetan singing bowls to promote feelings of tranquility.

Height: Whether you choose to meditate on the floor or sit higher up, the ideal height for your meditation table should be one that allows you to easily and comfortably rest your head. You may choose to place a cushion or pillow on top of your meditation table for added comfort.
