Sound Meditation Practices

Guidance

One of the most dynamic aspects of sound meditation is the number of techniques one can practice while listening. Here are techniques to practice during the sound bath: 1 – Focus your awareness on the sounds, and if the mind drifts away, just tune back into the music, or 2 – Practice mindfulness meditation while the sound blocks out distractions, focusing on the breath and noting when your mind drifts, then returning to the breath, or 3 – Allow the sound to guide you in a visualization, or 4 – Synchronize the breath with the vibrations, steadily breathing the same count (I like an 8 count during sound baths) as you inhale/exhale.

Sound should only be used as a tool for meditation. If it is distracting, let it go and try something else. For a deeper understanding of sound meditation, click here for more.
