Meditating with Icons

Icons are used as a spiritual practice for meditation and prayer. Each icon is created after months of prayer, fasting, and meditation. Icon artists believe these sacred icons are made through divine revelation. People have used sacred images and icons for thousands of years for meditation purposes and to help focus deeply on the mysteries of creation and the universe. Interestingly, icons have often been said to be called ‘windows to heaven.’ You can read more about meditating with icons in our article.
