How music for meditation can be a lifestyle While it’s fun to recommend lots of pop music for meditation to others and suggest artists to support, what would be optimal to make such music integrated into one’s life routine? Should one be listening to Simon and Garfunkel, Bruce Springsteen, or Dylan 24/7? Or mixing it up with an assortment of eclectic sounds, from Enya-like New Age music to Gregorian chants? What if you don’t have an endless, or even meager budget to be spending on all this music? And what if you want to retain a Western flavor to your meditating, instead of going all the way into lotus position, pursuing the The Path of the Chakras?

Well, the first thing to realize is that ‘music for meditation’ can only be only part of what meditation is, as it is useful to discuss only as a way to perform the act of meditating. The best approach is to structure a schedule so you can call “training sessions,” where you will practice obtaining a state of tranquility as such while using the appropriate music of your choice, from folk rock to protest songs to whatever, to facilitate reaching that state. This will eventually lead you getting better at meditating, as time goes on.

For those lacking the funds, the Internet is your friend. Endless examples of every type of music now available to people through video sharing sites like YouTube. Schedule time to listen to the samples that help you reach a relaxed or tranquil state, and it will provide you the raw materials that will easily help you utilize music for meditation. You may optimize this practice by downloading the videos, using anyone one of many programs available for this purpose. Armed with this downloaded music you will have primary materials needed to settle into a meditative state whenever you need to, without pauses or buffering.

Don’t just restrict yourself to using music for meditation, mix in poetry, visual art, remembering special moments, and similar triggers that will lead you to an internal state of peace. Whatever you do, keep the activity regular, and keep on training, in order to reach the tranquil state faster and deeper. Eventually the meditative state will come naturally, and will not need music or other hooks and make it happen. Even so, music meditation technique almost instantly alleviates the practitioner from stress-related problems, deeply relaxes the mind and rejuvenates the system.
