Our List Of 5 Popular Meditation Music Albums
Music is, well, I hate to use this old and too-many-times-runover-cliché, universal. I won’t haven change it because it still rings absolutely true to this day. Even the cliché itself is… universal. I did it again, but what the heck.
The Science Meditation Music And Our Brain
What we should all know about music is that is isn’t just about sound going through our ears. It’s not just about being entertained by our preferences when it comes to this art form. According to scientists and researchers, music intellectually stimulates our brain. Yes, you heard me (or more like, read…me? Lol).
Studies reveal that music “lights up” the exact parts of the brain that do when we go through activities that involve movement, attention, emotion, learning, and memory. Amazing, isn’t it? So it’s wrong to say that music is just something to pass the time because it does so much more than that.
Similarly, when it comes to music and meditation, the first isn’t there for the effect of it. It doesn’t just make atmosphere have that yoga-vibe (add in some bells and chimes, draped curtains and an instructor with a speaking voice as smooth as chocolate). No times three.
Think of it as a mood setter from within. It prepares your inner being for the steps you will be taking as you begin meditating. And it is part of the process as well, if you think about it.
Now, in this side of the spectrum it isn’t about your preference. One can’t choosy heavy metal and say that that’s his or her jam when it comes to relaxing. We respect your choice of music. I mean, we ourselves live in an explosive bang of different genres of music we chill out to any day.
However meditation music is very specific. It targets areas in our brains that function for the purposes of focus, intelligent decision making, positivity, rest and refreshment.
