Top 17 Best Meditation Aids & Tools

  1. Meditation Pillow – If you plan on sitting on the floor for your meditation, it’s a good idea to invest in a meditation cushion or pillow. This will help to keep your spine straight and prevent any discomfort in your hips, knees, or ankles. There are a variety of different types of meditation cushions available, so choose one that feels comfortable for you.

  2. Yoga Mat – Yoga mats are great for meditating outdoors in nature or for adding cushioning to a hard floor surface.

  3. Blanket-A blanket can be used for meditation or yoga, and can provide warmth and comfort during your practice. A blanket can also be used to cover yourself if you need to relax,rest or feel safe during your session.

  1. Mala Beads – Mala beads are commonly used in meditations as a tactile object to focus on. They have 108 beads, which represent the 108 names of God in Hinduism and Buddhism.

  2. Music & Sounds – Music and soothing sounds can be used as background noise while you’re meditating. My favorite mediation playlist is here: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/7w0XUfEzJ7fw3LESOmgdcS?si=IOB3rK6hSoOWnoE2r438qA&nd=1

  3. Essential Oils-Certain essential oils can be used to promote relaxation and focus during meditation. Some of the most popular options include lavender oil (for relaxation), peppermint oil (for focus), and chamomile oil (for both relaxation and focus). You can use these oils in diffusers or apply them topically to your skin before beginning your session. Just make sure not to use too much oil, as this could cause skin irritation or dizziness.

  4. A Quiet Space-One of the most important things you need for meditation is a quiet space where you can sit comfortably without distractions. If you don’t have a dedicated meditation space in your home, try to find a place where you can sit undisturbed for at least 10-15 minutes. Once you’ve found a suitable location, make sure to remove any potential distractions from the area, such as your phone, TV, or any other electronics.

  5. Comfortable Clothing-You’ll also want to make sure you’re wearing comfortable clothing that won’t distract you during your meditation. Avoid anything that’s too tight or constricting, and opt for breathable fabrics like cotton or linen. You might also want to consider wearing loose-fitting clothing in layers so you can adjust if you get too warm or cool during your session.

  6. A Meditation Bench-If sitting on the floor isn’t an option for you, or if you simply prefer to sit in a chair, then consider using a meditation bench. This type of seat is designed to keep your spine straight and your legs at a 90-degree angle, which can help to reduce strain on your back and knees. Meditation benches are also often more portable than chairs, making them a good choice if you plan on meditating while traveling.

  7. Guided Meditation Audio Tracks-If you’re new to meditation or find it difficult to focus while meditating on your own, then consider using guided meditation audio tracks. These tracks typically feature soothing music or nature sounds along with instructions from a certified meditation teacher. There are many different types of guided meditation audio tracks available online or through apps like Insight Timer, Headspace and Calm.com.

  8. Meditation Stool-A meditation stool is a small, portable stool that can be used for meditation or other purposes. A stool can be helpful if you need to sit in an upright position for an extended period of time, or if you need to be able to move around easily during your meditation practice.

  9. Gong & Singing Bowls – Gongs and singing bowls produce a powerful vibration when hit that can create a calming atmosphere conducive to meditation.

  10. Eye Pillow-An eye pillow is a small pillow that is placed over the eyes during meditation or yoga. An eye pillow can help to block out light and distractions, and can also provide relief from headaches or migraines.

  11. Baoding Balls-Baoding balls are small metal balls that are used for relaxation and meditation. They can be used to promote mindfulness by focusing your attention on the sensation of moving the balls around in your hands.

  12. Candles-Candles can be used as part of your meditation practice, or simply to create a relaxing atmosphere in your home or office space. Be sure to choose unscented candles so that they don’t interfere with your sense of smell during your practice.

  13. Journaling – Writing down thoughts before or after meditating can be beneficial in helping to clear the mind and process any emotions that come up. You can also record your meditation experiences in a journal, which can be helpful in tracking your progress.

  14. Positive Affirmations Meditation Self Care Cards-Meditation self-care cards are a great way to focus on positive affirmations throughout the day. These cards can be used in meditation, or just as a reminder of your personal power and potential.
