Did you know that there is a big difference between typical "relaxing new age music" and deep meditation music?
I love listening to music while I meditate, but as I mentioned in this article on using music for meditation, some types of new age music might be great for unwinding and relaxing, but are not always the best choice if you want to become very still and experience a state of truly deep meditation.
Much of the music that is available at the Guided Meditation site has been created using special techniques that encourage your mind to relax and become still while you enter into a state of deep meditation.
In particular, our Sonic Mantra Meditation Music is very good for entering deep, trance like states.
Also, our binaural meditation music can be an extremely effective tool for enhancing meditation, as it plays an active role in guided the activity of your mind into a more relaxed, focussed state.
For some deeper insight into how to get the most out of your meditation music, take a moment to review the tips in this article on using music for meditation.
Of course, you can listen to relaxing meditation music even when you are not meditating. Ambient music is the perfect antidote to the noise and calamity of our modern world. Think about how much noise we are exposed to in our daily lives...TV and radio follow us wherever we go and the noise of traffic and industry surrounds many of us on all sides.
Take some time out to change the frequency of your life by listening to some relaxing music. Even if you don't practice formal meditation, listening to soothing music like this can be a fantastic way to de-stress and unwind. It's also a very simple and most natural treatment for insomnia.
Let the sound of music take the place of the chatterbox in your mind and let your worries float away...
