Guided Meditations - Sound
Sound meditations can be particularly healing and soothing, clearing negative energy and clarifying thoughts by producing alpha waves in the brain which induce a relaxed but alert meditative state.
Sound is felt as a vibration throughout the whole body and can assist with physical and emotional imbalances. When doing a sound meditation it’s beneficial to bring your awareness to where you feel the vibration in your body and noticing any thoughts or feelings as you do.
Some types of instrumental sound meditation include:
- Relaxation music
- Binaural beats
- Tibetan singing bowls
- Crystal singing bowls
- Tuning forks
Vibrationary instruments like singing bowls, pyramids, tuning forks and chimes can assist with bringing the body’s crystalline structures back into their natural state of healthy resonance. They realign the parts of the body that are imbalanced, creating a vibration that amplifies and transforms energy, allowing the body, mind, heart and soul to vibrate in perfect balance and harmony. They also alter brain wave frequencies (inducing that calm and relaxed but alert and aware Alpha state) as well as balancing and synchronising the left and right brains.
A binaural beat is created using two different sound waves below a certain frequency and in a particular range from each other, each played in opposite ears (you need to listen using headphones). This then creates a fluctuating rhythm between the two auditory inputs. Binaural beats can induce a meditative state by changing or training your brain waves and the consistent beat can also create a trance like state.
