Music can be a great background in a 'relaxation meditation'. Absorbing ourselves in the sounds can take our mind off stressful situations.
Put your CD on and recline on the sofa, bed, or floor, and begin even breathing - counts 1, 2, breathe in; counts 3, 4, breathe out; counts 1, 2, breathe in and continue for a minute.
Then, keep up the even breathing, but let go of the counting and listen to the soothing sounds of your music.
Breath is the tie between body, mind, and emotions. By regulating the breath we regulate bodily rhythms, as well. Use the help of soothing music to calm yourself and as one way to draw closer to the eventual sounds of the spheres in deep meditation.
There are an unlimited number of music offerings available to help you on your journey to meditate. Here are some of the CDs I like. But, do choose what sounds appeal to you.
Yanni - Live at the Acropolis
Ali Akbar Khan - Journey
Loreena McKennitt - The Book of Secrets
John Michael Talbot - Chant from the Hermitage
Best of Kitaro I
