First, why do we need to meditate? Meditation is a process of deeply relaxing the mind by focusing on only one thought. Focusing means repeating a word or several words to divert yourself from any distractions and attaining calmness of the mind.
Meditation sounds as easy. You may even feel like you have done this during those glum days when everything doesn’t seem right. Like the time you failed algebra class and you sit down on the table, with a cup of coffee in hand, pretending to be engrossed in the latest news, but are actually seeing and hearing nothing. Well not quite…you may look as calm and peaceful as someone meditating but your mind is a definite clutter.
A lot of people who are just beginning to get acquainted with meditation find it hard to stay focus. Some are not used to staying “thoughtless” even for just a few minutes. That is where guided meditations come in. Some of these use tools like meditation music and meditation scripts to help to motivate these people to concentrate.
Meditation music can be you choice of soothing music. It doesn’t necessarily have to be some Indian chants or a Mozart piece. It can be just any music that you feel will clear your mind off any thought. Some professional guides who conduct private sessions use meditation music with cues. These cues are like scripts that they read to those meditating so that they can attain a state of deep relaxation easier and faster.
A lot of websites provide free meditation rooms which include calming images too look at for exercises. These sites also have several tracks of meditation music. Highly recommended meditation music cd’s can also be found with reviews from people who have tried using them in their meditation.
Most meditation music have been said to have helped people attain the blissful state after only a few minutes of listening. Some meditation music contains operatic music samples, music from choirs, and even just natural sounds. Visiting www.bliss-music.com will let you hear samples of different kinds of meditation music and will provide you with free samples of scripts that you can use as guide to your meditation practice. Another site, www.meditatiomusic.co.uk has also free meditation music, aside from a list of recommended cd’s.
The use of meditation music as a means for people to focus more does not explain the theory of music but makes it possible for these people to be involved with music. There are thousands of tracks of meditation music that you one can choose from. It doesn’t matter if it sounds like a séance or someone just learning to play the piano. The important thing is it works for you.
