Meditation Music

With study after study pouring in, meditation music is a rapidly spreading technique in the United States and other parts of the world. Music can serve as a great focal point for meditation. As its soothing sounds relax and calm you, the even rhythms and steady beats do wonders to help hold your attention and sustain your concentration. Pick a favorite tape or CD, something soothing and mellow, nothing too disturbing, and have a seat.

Turn on the music and sit cross-legged on the floor, making sure your posture is good and your shoulders are relaxed. Try sitting on a pillow if you feel uncomfortable. If you have one, set a timer for five minutes. Timers work incredibly well for meditation because they eliminate two potential distractions-watches and clocks.

As You Continue With Meditation Music

Alright! So you're sitting there with good posture, relaxed shoulders, as comfortable as you can get in a cross-legged position, you have a timer set, so now what do you do? Now, rest your palms on your knees and slowly rock forward and backward, side to side, until you feel a sense of balance and stability. Close your eyes and focus on the back of your eyelids.

As you meditate, let the meditation music in. Acknowledge it and let it help you plunge into deep relaxation. Focus on your breath, making sure to breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth. Don't worry about the time; your timer will take care of that. When you finish with this meditation, you will feel more balanced, more relaxed, and more aware than you did before the meditation. That's the whole idea.
