I know many people who prefer silence for their meditation times.
That’s never worked well for me. Many years ago, I created a form of meditation for myself that involved toning and movement. It was my go-to way to meditate for well over a decade. Then, I stopped practicing it. I don’t remember why.
I do find nature sounds (the real ones, please) or mellow music are very helpful when I meditate. Recently, I noticed that the music I was using for this was not working for me any more. So, I began to write some meditative music for myself.
It’s autumn here and I always find this season inspiring. Using that inspiration along with my interest in having something that might help my own meditation, I composed and recorded. Eventually, I needed to focus on some other projects, but afterwards I returned to this one.
Fortunately, I think some of these musical recordings came out well enough to share with you. Initially, I set out to create a whole album of meditative music. Though I ran out of time to record a full album, I’m presenting a suite (or EP as some call these) starting with “SeaSong Waves”.
My father is a retired minister, so I grew up a P.K. (preacher’s kid). Prayer is familiar to me, but this “Purposefully Purple…” kind is new.
I’ve always found infatuation (being overly attracted to something — usually unhealthy) to be a distraction from meditating. So, when I was naming the tracks, “Not Infatuated” came to mind easily.
