Eye Pillows - These are used when you are lying down while meditating. They are often made of flax seed covered with silk and they are placed directly over acupressure points that surround your eyes. They relieve tension and block out light. Some include aromatherapy oils to promote a deep feeling of relaxation.
Meditation Blanket - You can use one to cover a cushion, chair, or bench. You can also use it to cover yourself during your meditation to provide you with warmth. Some are made from very soft fabrics, which help promote a deeper sense of relaxation.
Meditation Music - Using soft music can help you relax fully 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 right time, you will be gently alerted that your practice time is over.
There are a variety of items that you can try during your meditation to see which ones you like and to discover which ones help you go deeper within. Remember, goal of meditation is stillness. When your body is comfortable, then your mind has ability to become still.
