3 Ways to Improve Your Meditation Through Audio

As you may know, meditation is greatly enhanced through the use of sound. Consequently, you will find a plethora of meditation audio tools when you look for them.

Here is a brief summary of the different types of meditation audio options available to you to enhance and create a new level of meditation for you.

Meditation Audio – Nature

These types of recording use the sounds of birds, water and other types of sounds typical of the outdoors. Probably the most beneficial of this category is the water sounds. Since the human body is water based, using a meditation audio of flowing water can improve the quality of you practice greatly, specifically as you listen to the water and let the water carry away all of the stress and tension in your body.

Of course, recordings are useful, but the real thing is always better. If you chose to try out water meditation, you may want to invest in a small fountain so that you can truly enjoy the benefits of this type of meditation.

Meditation Audio – Music

This category has the most variety. There are the obvious recording of classical piano pieces as well as orchestra pieces. But, for those of you that are really looking to take your meditation to a different place, try a Celtic audio recording, or another traditional genre from your own bloodlines. There are some very interesting recordings of African rain music, early traditional music from India, native American music and early Japanese instruments.

Each of these music categories will take you to a whole new experience in your meditation. When choosing a music meditation audio, please take into consideration your desired outcome of you practice. Are you wanting mainly to unwind and de stress? Are you looking to re connect with yourself? Is the purpose of your meditation to invigorate your spirit? Each outcome will require a different type of audio.

Meditation Audio – Mantra

Simply put, the sound of the human voice has the amazing ability to connect you, not only with yourself, but also the entire human experience.

The most typical mantra meditation audio is chants, and the language spoken also influences the direction and outcome of your meditation. Other options for you include recording your own voice repeating you own personal mantra. The advantages here are, of course, very personal and private.

Combining the different sound options above can create a truly unique experience for you. One of my personal favorite combinations is water with an early Irish soundtrack.

Though the above three categories are by no means exhaustive, they do give you an over view of how sound can improve and enhance the time the you set apart for the most important person in your world – YOU.
