As a musician and as a scientist, I’ve always been fascinated with the principles of psychoacoustics (the psychology of sound), and as someone who has practiced meditation for many years, I appreciate great meditation music when I hear it. One of the things I have come to realize is this:
There is a big difference between typical "relaxing new age music"
I love listening to music while I meditate, but as I mentioned in this article on using music for meditation, most new age music that you come across might be great for unwinding and relaxing, but it’s not always the best choice if you want to experience a truly deep meditation.
Hey…I love relaxing new age music as much as the next person, but for me, music like this can become a bit of a distraction once I reach a certain level of depth in my meditation. I like meditation music that really draws me in and washes away the thoughts in my mind. I like meditation music to be hypnotic and embracing. I like to know that it is actually helping me to meditate.
There are a few different types of meditation music to experience on this website. Allow me to briefly introduce them to you.
The first is Sonic Mantra meditation music. Like most meditation music, Sonic Mantra meditation music is beautiful, soothing and relaxing. But Sonic Mantra meditation music goes one step further than the meditation music that you might have experienced in the past. This deep meditation music is created with a very simple, but very effective technique that results in a mantra-like musical experience that really helps you to meditate with more clarity and greater depth. To really understand how this type of music can help you meditate, you need to follow this link for the inside story.
The second is Binaural Music. Binaural music utilizes an audio technology known as binaural beats. Binaural beats are specialized sounds that are embedded within the music that literally guide your brainwave activity into a state of deep meditation. Powerful stuff, and very popular these days!
The third type of meditation music is...well it's just normal, soothing music! No fancy technology. No special techniques. Just utterly relaxing music that comes from the heart. If this sounds like the kind of music you're looking for, then click here to listen to some inspiring music samples.
