If you think that meditation music is just another word for relaxation music, think again.
I consider myself as a music aficionado and my musical preference ranges all the way from Jazz to electronic music. And what I realized through my years of sifting through countless vinyl records, cassette tapes, CD’s, and MP3’s was that there are certain musical frequencies that can awaken a person’s spiritual side.
These frequencies can change a person’s frame of mind, heighten consciousness and even reinvigorate the spirit. It helps a person become more creative, and in some cases, shed light on ones purpose.
Years ago, when I started listened to meditative music, I noticed that my meditation sessions became much deeper and that I was more creative afterwards. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that meditating with music is a magic pill. What I’m trying to point out is that listening to music during your sessions can heighten the experience and amplify the effects.
It has been documented that combining music with meditation techniques results in our brain secreting the chemical responsible for giving us the feeling we recognize as “love”.
By combining guided meditation with meditation music, you allow yourself to tap into your subconscious. Your focus becomes heightened, creativity is enhanced and you will feel energized and rejuvenated.
In my meditation journey, I also realized that listening to music could actually become the meditation itself.
I experimented with this idea for several months, and I realized that I was able to go really deep states by listening to music. Of course, I tried to shift between genres to see if there was any change. And to no surprise, the more “organic” the music was, the better the experience became.
This led me to the conclusion that though not all music can be used for meditation and narrowed it down to two factors.
1. You must take the idea of meditating to music seriously
You can’t just put on any music; you have to actively listen and become one with it. There must be nodistractions. All you need to do is sit comfortably with your eyes closed and listen.
2. The more “organic” the music is, the better
Like I said, I tried numerous genres and forms of music. But what worked best for me was the sound of rain.
To end, let me leave you with something from Albert Einstein:
“If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music.”
I hope that I have given you sound advice pertaining to how you can use meditation music, or music in general, in your meditation sessions. If you want more information about the best meditation music available online, please check out our FREE meditation audio.
