While we try and keep our whole home a relaxing, peaceful place, with three little ones it can be tricky.
We have a special Peaceful Space in our home, a corner to be calm, quiet and mindful.
While it is relatively simple, it feels like such a magical place to spend time.
Whenever a little one feels like they might like to take a break from what they are doing they can come and sit on the Zafu meditation cushion in our Peaceful Space.
Here they can meditate, light an incense stick (with Mama’s help!) or read one of the many inspirational books we keep in the Peaceful Corner.
On the shelves next to the Zafu we keep a set of Baoding Balls , a felt flower stacking toy, a small statue of Buddha which is an indoor fountain, a Mind Jar and a rain stick, as well as books about meditation, a small book of prayers, a “Spirit Journey” guide, a wooden Mandala Maker toy and a small doll to hold.
On the wall are some printed Mandalas and a canvas that says “You are Loved”.
I am hoping to get some child-sized Tibetan Prayer Beads as well as a small Holding Cross to keep in a small bowl, and maybe even make a Finger Labyrinth from clay.
I really love our little Peaceful Space and how it changes so easily to be exactly what we need it to be: A place to read or meditate, a place to calm your thoughts or just a place to sit when you need a break.

Have a beautiful day!
