DIY Meditation Exercise: The Peace Cup

It's no secret, I love meditation and all forms of it.  Meditation has so many benefits and I love getting deep down into it.  Meditation can assist you with:

  • Better Sleeping
  • Faster Healing
  • Aids Digestion
  • Reduces Headaches
  • Increases Circulation
  • Strengthens the Immune System
  • Connecting to those in the Spiritual Realm
  • Releasing Emotional Traumas
  • Mind Clearing and Resetting
  • Improves the Ability to Focus and much more.

I always get told by people that they "can't" meditate or focus.

That's fine, it's a solution for that......The Peace Cup.

The Peace Cup is something you can create on your own time to help you focus with your own meditation.  You can get very simple with this or you can go ALL out with your creative process. These are the things you'll need:


-Sheet of Paper

-Cup, bowl or basket

-Markers, pens, pencils or crayons

First you will need to make a list of 6-8 things you want to work on by meditating (you can do more if you're the intense type life me).

Next, cut your piece of paper into 6-8 pieces and write or draw each focus on their own small piece.

Then, place the focuses in the cup.  After that you will pull a focus per day for you to meditate on.  Meditation comes in many forms and you can choose which way you would like to meditate for the day. 

Example: You pull the word "Forgiveness" and ask yourself how would you like to work on your focus. You can close your eyes and meditate on the word forgiveness and see what comes up, write in a journal those who you would like to forgive or create an affirmation about forgiveness to repeat to yourself throughout the day.  

That's it! It doesn't have to be this big complicated thing.

I hope you enjoy this mindful exercise and get more comfortable with your meditation practices.
