Your Meditation Room Try to meditate in a special room that you designate just for this purpose, I understand that some of you might live in small spaces you can still find that space.

Please make that your altar wall does not share a toilet or the kitchen and there is no toilet directly above your altar. The altar in your meditation area should not face directly facing the door, because as you sit to face your altar to meditate your back will be to the door and this is very unfavourable from a feng shui perspective.
