How to Choose the Right Ones for You
Choosing the meditation supply products can be very useful in helping you deepen your meditation practice.
In order to be able to more fully switch your attention away from the outside world to your inner world, you need to be comfortable in your body. If you feel any sense of strain or pain, you will not be able to let go completely. Choosing the correct meditation supply products can aid you in being as comfortable as possible so you can relax and let go.
There are several different types of meditation supply products that fall into this category and they can really provide support and comfort to various parts of your body.
A chair can help support your body while you are deep in meditation. Many people begin to slouch when they sit for long periods of time. This can cause strain in their backs. If you use a chair it can help provide good support for upper your back. Some of them also have adjustable cushions that you can use to relieve strain in your lower back. I have a lot of back issues so this is a ‘must have’ for me.
Meditation Bench or Stool
This type of meditation seat such as the Original Pi Meditation Bench can help you if your hips tend to be tight. It lifts your hips up off the floor and it provides extra support for your legs and knees. Some benches tilt slightly forward to allow you to maintain an upright posture during your meditation.
These are the most common meditation supply products that are used by most people. There are different types that you can try. You can use more than one at the same time depending on the specific needs of your body.
You can use a cushion to help lift your hips up off the floor so you can sit comfortably during your practice. Cushions come in different sizes and shapes so you might need to test different ones to find one or two that work for you. The Zen Meditation Pillow with Buckwheat Hulls might be a good one for you to try.
Zafu Meditation Cushion
A Round Cotton Zafu Meditation Cushion is very commonly used in meditation. They are round with pleated sides and they are sturdy enough to give you support while also providing you with a good deal of comfort.
Special Yoga Meditation Cushion
While you can use most cushions during yoga meditation, one of unique ones you can use is a round cylindrical pillow which you can place under your neck or upper back during Savasana corpse pose. This will allow you to breathe more deeply and fully and also provide support to your neck while you are lying down. This Stress Relief Kit comes with a neck cushion and an eye pillow too.
Other Meditation Supply Products
This can be very useful when you are in a cool room. You can use a blanket like the Extra Large Cotton Yoga Blanket without Tassels to cover yourself and have it provide your body with warmth. Some are made from very soft fabrics which help promote a deeper sense of relaxation. Blankets can also be used to cover benches, chairs, cushions, or stools.
Meditation Music or Relaxation Tapes
Using soft music or listening to relaxation tapes can help you become more fully centered so you can experience a deeper meditation practice.
Meditation Timers - If you are concerned about spending too long a period of time in meditation, you will not be able to focus fully within. Set one of these timers so you can let go and be fully present in your meditation. At just the right time, you will be gently alerted that your practice time is over.
There are a variety of meditation supply products that you can try to see which ones you like and to discover which ones help you go deeper within. Remember, the goal of meditation is stillness. When your body is comfortable, then your mind has the ability to become still.
