Meditating with Sound, either sound you make yourself or pre recorded sounds/music that you listen to while meditating adds a whole new dimension to your meditation. Sounds vibrate not only your physical body but also your etheric energy body. There are all kinds of benefits to meditation, medical / physical as well as emotional and spiritual. Meditation Boosts Your Health, Happiness, Social Life, Improves Brain Function, Productivity, and Self Control. Getting the most out of the time we spend meditating can be challenging. Toning or sounding during your meditation can really help you focus your intention because you are feeling the vibrations of your sound instead of just imagining a state of mind.  It is very important to find what works for you. Some people use meditation CD’s like the Sound Lady’s “Prayer Songs” ($12.99)

Some folks focus on the breath or a spoken mantra. Others use visual memory or visualizations. What enhances your meditation awareness probably won’t work for everyone. We all have dominant senses-sight, sound, touch and that hard wires what we are most comfortable with. Stay with what works for you, but don’t be afraid to try other techniques from hypnosis to chakras meditation they all are vehicles to the stillness.

The  greatest gift we can ever give is to know our own wholeness and operate from that place. Very wise words and quite a challenge. Unless you are the type of meditation expert who can empty their mind instantly and connect with all that is, meditation accessories can be very helpful. Let’s face it, we live in a very fast paced world that values and rewards multi tasking to increase productivity. Trying to balance that kind of busy mental energy with a calm spiritual perspective takes a good amount of practice. Sure we have the discipline to sit every day and exercise our ability to stop the internal chatter, but how much success do you have in quieting the mind in the amount of time you have allotted for your daily meditation awareness technique?
