Using A Wall Water Feature To Create A Meditation Room

The benefits of meditation have been documented thoroughly over many centuries: studies and conventional wisdom alike show that spending time daily in a meditative state can focus your mind, revitalize your energy levels and even prove beneficial for your overall health. Meditation reduces stress, lowers blood pressure and can help you achieve more restful sleep and be more efficient while you work. In order to truly get the most out of your meditative practice, however, it’s absolutely vital that the space you meditate in is calm and peaceful in and of itself, without interruptions, and without distracting noises or ambient, disruptive sounds. Of course, the best and easiest way to give you something calming, relaxing and neutral to focus on while meditating is to set up a wall water feature in your meditation chamber.

By using a wall water feature instead of a freestanding one, you create a first line of defense against outside noise: you don’t have to worry about meditating between the white noise and the ambient sound, because the white noise is coming from the wall itself. If you find that your meditation room has significant background noise coming from more than one direction, it might be best to buy more than one wall water feature in order to best minimize the distractions— it’s certainly cheaper than installing soundproofing, and the sound of the flowing water gives you something to concentrate on as you slip into a meditative state.

Additionally, using a wall water feature in your meditation room means that it doesn’t matter how big (or small!) your room is— since the fountain doesn’t take up any floor space, it leaves room for whatever else you want to put in your meditation room: a Zen garden, mats for yoga, or just sculptures and other reminders of the peace you are trying to achieve.

Though you may think that creating a personalized, custom meditation room may be expensive or time consuming, that doesn’t have to be the case. Like meditation itself, the ability to have a separate, special room in which you can be alone to clear your mind is something available to everyone who has the time and a little bit of extra, clear space. By thinking outside the box and using a wall water feature to do multiple jobs, you can have the meditation room of your dreams— whether those dreams are big or small.
