Meditation And Music

Meditation is the key to connecting with your Higher Power. Once you are able to find the stillness within yourself, a whole new way of dealing with life is opened up. The inevitable daily stress that is impossible to avoid in today's world has a place to go when you meditate. Your stresses are put into perspective and daily happenings are more easily let go.

Once meditation becomes a daily practice, the positive benefits will be apparent in your day to day life. When a stressful time comes up during the day, you will be able to take a few deep breaths and find your inner calm. This allows you to make better choices and see situations clearer than you do when caught up in a tension cycle. Soon you will earn the reputation of being the person who can always be counted on to keep their cool when put into a tight spot.

Because our lives can be so stressful it can be difficult to quiet our minds sometimes. Living in the inner city, I've found that the city noises can be a challenge when trying to center myself. Though this is good practice I often find that listening to calming music can be the key to letting my thoughts go so that I may allow the Universe to set up shop. And when I first began my meditation practice, I found it much easier to silence my thoughts by involving music. The relaxing tones and beautiful sounds helped me to focus on being in the now.

My Guide To Meditating

Meditation is as simple as taking a deep breath and releasing your daily pressures. After years of practicing meditation with various teachers and guides, I have found that this is what works best for me:

  • Create a space where you can sit, or lie down, undisturbed for at least five minutes.
  • Sit or lie down in this quiet, personal space.
  • Close your eyes.
  • Place your hands on your abdomen.
  • Take a deep breath, inhale all the way down to your abdomen for at least six counts.
  • Hold the breath for at least four counts.
  • Exhale over six counts at least, preferably eight.
  • Repeat this breathing exercise a few times feeling the rise and fall of your abdomen under your hands.
  • Feel the softness of your abdomen as it continues to rise and fall.
  • Observe the feelings of relaxation which follow.
  • Allow your mind to become quiet.
  • Visualize all thoughts and concerns drifting away one by one. If a thought pops in your head and doesn't want to leave ~ visualize yourself asking it to leave and showing it the door.
  • Let yourself go and allow the Universe to fill you.

Hold on to this feeling as long as possible. The more you meditate the longer you will be able to meditate. As you practice, you will find it easier to sit in this relaxed and open space.
