What is the best music for meditation?

What is the best quality music for meditation? This has got to be the question of the century, and in all honesty, there are many different answers depending upon what you would like to get out of your meditation and  what your style of meditation might be – Ie, What is enjoyable for you to listen to whilst meditating. ? In this article, I will cover 3 different types of meditation music –

Ambient Music

This is of course one of the most popular ways for people to meditate. It’s soothing. It’s melodic and music that’s gentle for the soul. It can assist us in the quest for gaining greater peace of mind. For instance, check out Dr. Christopher Lloyd Clarke’s relaxation music. Although hebest meditation music is not popular to the masses (just yet!), his music is one of the best I’ve heard for meditation. Yes, I’ve promoted him before. But when it’s due, I will promote him all I can. You be the judge! You can click the link here, or listen to the youtube video. http://youtu.be/0Lgjw7G5190

You can also check out my list of the top 10 youtube meditation music clips here.

His music is heavenly and nothing short of an emotional charge for the soul. Breathe into it, relax and let go. You can check more of his music here at Relax Me Online – best relaxation music.

Although relaxation music may not be scientifically studied and proven to heal, I have no doubt in my mind that music can be more healing than a lot of medical science provides in the world today. We should never underestimate the power of meditation and relaxation music.

I would like to share with you yet another musician that has reached me for many years with his music – and his work truly takes me away when I meditate; that is the music of Japetus.  Japetus is an Australian composer who has been composing ambient music since the early 1980’s. I first listened to his music around 1985 whilst meditating and it was heavenly to say the least. Yes, it helped me to reach amazing heights during my meditation period of that time. Here is a sample of his work here: http://youtu.be/7bz87Kf_xrA. I truly feel privileged to have had the honour of contacting this man. (Not in person, but on the web) His music speaks to me.

Now, I have much to cover in this blog and I don’t want to go on too much as I have much to cover, however  just five more artists to mention: Paul Headon (Australia), Dr Harry Henshaw (USA) , Clinton Lourey (Australia),  JS Epperson (USA) and Robert Rudnik. (Norway) These musicians have so, so much to offer. Please take some time if you can and check them out. They have given me so much when it comes to quality relaxation music. I recommend these artists with all my heart.

Binaural Beats

Binaural beats are heavenly. They truly are. Have you experienced them yet whilst meditating? If not, please do so… NOW! They make the process of meditation seem to happen at a much faster speed.  Some have even reported that we can meditate as deep as a Zen Monk with binaural beats.

So what are binaural beats? They were discovered way back in 1839 by a man by the name of  Heinrich Wilhelm Dove. It was discovered that these binaural beats he produced helped with inducing creativity, relaxation, meditation, and a variety of other mental states desired by people. Binaural beats are separate frequency  tones played in each ear with the difference between frequencies of tones played in each ear determines the brainwaves’ effect. For instance, if a sound of 250 Hz is being played in the right ear with 260 Hz in the left, the frequencybest meditation music of the beat will be 10 Hz. The human brain emits strong signals filled with energy. ‘Waves’, as they are called, are emitted every second during an individual’s lifetime. These brainwaves’ frequencies vary based on the feelings and thoughts that occur in the minds of people. According to the Law of Attraction, we have the ability to attract whatever we lay our focus on, thus helping you control your emotions, thoughts, and feelings.

I put binaural beats to the test one day… and guess what? They passed with flying colours! I put on my headphones as I listened to Theta binaural beats play underneath a beautiful soundtrack of storm and rain. Well, simply put, it was an amazing experience. I felt like at one point that I had left my body. Tingles began to happen throughout my entire body. So , at this point I could say that this was the best music for meditation!

This recording has binaural beats in it and helps with anxiety And this one can help with can help with meditation and opening of the chakras. For pure meditation purposes, take a listen to the second recording.

 

Brainwave Entrainment – the best music for meditation?

Brainwave Entrainment is a rapidly growing field that involves the study of how changing brainwaves by natural means, will allow people to effortlessly enter states of increased intelligence, creativity, relaxation, pure energy, and more. Here is a little of the science behind this fascinating subject: The brain is made up of billions of brain cells called neurons, which communicate with each other using electrical signals. All of these neurons sending signals at once, produce a large amount of electrical activity, commonly called a Brainwave Pattern. Researchers and scientists have found that different bands of brainwaves, are associated with different mental states. For example, the brainwaves of a sleeping person are much different than the brainwaves of a person who is awake.

best meditation musicYears of research has shown that brainwaves not only provide insight into an individual’s mind and body, but they can be stimulated to actually change that person’s mental state. That’s right, by causing the brain to produce, or decrease, specific types of brainwave frequencies, it is possible to bring about a large variety of mental states, and emotional reactions.

In a 1973 issue of Scientific American, Dr. Gerald Oster examined how combining two pure tones, resulted in a rhythmic beat, which he called Binaural and Monaural Beats. In comparing Binaural beats against Monaural beats, Oster noted that Monaural beats were shown to elicit extremely strong cortical responses, which is the electrical activity responsible for entrainment. Oster concluded, they could be useful in diagnosing certain neurological disorders.

In the 1980′s, Dr. Glen Solomon and others, researched entrainment for headache relief, as well as general relaxation. In 1981, Arturo Manns published a study showing the effectiveness of Isochronic Tones as a means of audio-based brainwave entrainment. This was later confirmed by others, such as David Siever. Michael Hutchison also wrote his landmark book, MegaBrain, in 1981, outlining the many possible uses of entrainment, from meditation to enhancing creativity. You can check out some brainwave activity here. This recording has been known to assist with relief of headaches.

Listening to a particular type or genre of music can help alter your brainwaves significantly. When you listen to brainwave entrainment – the technology used to scientifically develop auditory tunes, your brain’s electrical activity is stimulated in a manner such that it follows a specific frequency.

You can even make your own Brainwave entrainment music here… of if you are not feeling too creative, purchase ready made entrainment here. I have found brainwave entrainment to be like magic. But it does take work and continuous use to gain the REAL benefits of relaxation.

So there you have it. Really, the best music for meditation is the one that is BEST for YOU! It is a personal choice. In all honesty, I’ve found great experiences in all of the above at different times.

How to make brainwave entrainment & Binaural beats – easy!

Firstly, what is brainwave entrainment? (Please click for a full explanation) I want to share with you a way to make easy (very simple) brainwave entrainment and binaural beat recordings. I’ve been using a program now for the past 4 years that makes this whole process so damned easy and more importantly FUN to use. It’s like having a blank canvas to paint on and the choices are amazing.

brainwave entrainment, binaural beatsFirstly, for some of you, you may even be wondering what on earth is brainwave entrainment. Ok, I will attempt to explain it in my own words, but then I will give you a link to a better definition.

For me, it’s about helping me to relax and reduce anxiety as it builds up. Firstly in a nut shell, brainwave entrainment are recordings (they can be visual as well as sound) that have brainwave patterns on them to assist our minds to mimic these brainwave petterns to being about a different state of mind. For instance, when we listen to certain types of music (heavy metal for instance), it can get our heart rate up and get us moving about. It has different wave forms in the music that do that to us. When we listen to brainwave entrainment, it also has different wave formations (for instance Theta waves) that can bring us into a more relaxed and tranquil state. Simply by listening to the sounds, our brains begin to be ‘entrained’ with new pathways. relaxing us, soothing us.

I am not too good with words here so bare with me. Here is a link from Relax Me online that really explains it in full and precisely if you want to have a good understanding of entrainment recordings. basically though, I can tell you this much. It works!!!

I had a court case a few years ago (where I was a victim of an assault) and just before court I was so anxious and nervous and was not looking forward to it at all. I played on my ipod a brain entrainment track that I had made myself with the program I use Neuro-Programmer. (More on this program in a moment) By the time the court case came up, I was so relaxed, centered and had no anxiety. I walked in calmly … and needless to say the courtcase worked well. I said my piece with honesty, integrity and calmness and before I knew it, it was over and I had won. The entrainment assisted me to deep breathe and let go of tension and anxiety.

Since this time, not only do I use it myself, but I produce it for others to relax to as well 🙂

Here is the program I use and let me tell you about it:

Brainwave Entrainment And Hypnosis Software

And a preview of one of the tracks I’ve made up: Preview Hypnotic Sub Delta Meditation

This program is simply put….. AMAZING!!!! I love, love, love it! You can create music tracks with binaural beats and amazing entrainment for anxiety, stress, health issues such as Chronic fatigue, ADHD, and even to prepare for competition sports. Yes, this one costs money (about $60.00 for the standard edition or $90.00 for the ultimate edition) but is WELL WORTH the money you pay. I can’t count how many recordings I’ve made for myself and friends – literally hundreds and one of my friends even said he cat even relaxes when she listens to the music!!! I kid you not! And once you make the recordings you can  save them as MP3’s or WAVE files so you can burn them onto CD’s.

The program allows you to make recordings of whatever size you choose. ( You can make a short 10 minute recording or  a 3 hour binaural beatlongs recording – the choice is yours.) And it already has folders where you can select what you want the recording for  eg> anxiety, sleep, better health, sports, relaxation, meditation, stress relief etc etc. The great thing is about these, is you can edit them also and change the background sounds. they have nature sounds such as rain, storm, underwater effects, flowing brook. And then they have mystical sounds, orchestral sounds and so much more.

On top of all of this, you can add binaural beats to your recording. OR, you can simply have binaural beats ONLY and have nothing else on the recording. Just at the push of a button.!!!

Here is a video I’ve made to show you some of the functions of the program:

So you can hear on this video some of the beautiful music you can produce… and the good thing the capabilities are endless. You can add a track with rain and binaural beats, or brainwave entrainment and classical music. It’s totally up to you how you want to make your recordings.

If you are really keen and want to make money from the recordings you make, you can purchase a full commercial license (this costs big dollars around $700.00) but it is Sooooooo worth it!

Aside from the brainwave entrainment and binaural beats, you can also use this as a tool for hypnotherapy and you can record your own voice (or use a computer generated voice) for a guided meditation/hypnosis session.

This all in all kinda sounds like a sales pitch for this program… It’s not! It’s meant to be for dummies like me that just want to push a few buttons and BINGO, you have a recording designed to address a specific goal or problem.  I am on this program every day and can’t get enough of it. When I sell on Ebay, neither can my customers purchase enough from me. I purchased the full commercial license and have made my money back in the thousands of dollars over the past 3-4 years. If you don’t believe me, check out my site at Zen Man’s Crystals and look at all the entrainment CDs I have produced 🙂

If you are interested and still unsure, just make sure you use the free trial first and if it suits, buy it, if not, throw it away. This program is KING! There is nothing better on the market… If there is, please let me know 🙂 If you purchase it and have ANY questions, I think I could say I’m an expert with this program now – so please, just drop me a message and i will get back to you with any answers you may want. 🙂 CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE THE PROGRAM BY TRANSPARENT CORP.
