Depending on your own personal preference, you may like to meditate in silence with just the natural sounds of whatever is close to you as accompaniment to your meditation. Or you may prefer to use meditation music as a background to your meditation.
Meditation music can be useful when there is a fair amount of background noise nearby. For instance, it could be traffic noise, children playing outside, maybe a construction job that’s started near to you and is disturbing your meditation. Or it could simply be that you prefer to be lulled into your meditative state with the assistance of music.
If you’re meditating with friends or members of your family, then putting on some music can be an easy way to help your meditation session. Likewise if there are children in your meditation group you may find that they get less easily distracted if there is some gentle music involved.
The type of music you use will depend on your personal preferences. Some people even manage to meditate whilst listening to heavy metal music although I must admit I’m at a loss to know how they manage
Most purpose made meditation music will use natural instruments – acoustic guitars, flutes, etc. Although some modern meditation music will achieve its aim with electronic instruments. If you get a chance, make sure that you listen to a sample before you commit to purchase. Most websites from Amazon downwards will give you the opportunity to listen to a short sample of the tracks they have for sale and you should be able to get a good idea of how well you’ll like the selection from these samples.
Another thing to consider is whether or not the music includes any binaural beats – sometimes referred to as brainwave beats. These can help your mind reach a meditative state quickly and easily and you are likely to find that your meditation is deeper if the music you are listening to includes binaural beats behind it.
If you’ve never tried a meditation session with music in the background, give it a go. You could be pleasantly surprised at the outcome. And if you don’t like it, at least you’ve given it a go
