In today’s blog post we’re going to recommend some blissful music for meditation!
If you’re anything like me, you may find that music relaxes you – especially when paired with your yoga or meditation practice.
Although, the best music to listen to when you are looking for detachment is the instrumental kind.
Music without lyrics allows your thoughts to settle. When we listen to music with a vocalist, we subconsciously put the vocals at the forefront of the experience.
This is similar to when we see photos of people. Our eyes are drawn to faces and expressions. It’s a natural human instinct to recognise and analyse things that are familiar – and what’s more familiar than the shape of a human face or the sound of someone’s voice?
Here are some of our instrumental recommendations – perfect for yoga, meditation, reading, sleeping, relaxing or even studying.
