The Use Of Music For Relaxation And Meditation

Hello there Peace Rebels!

I am new to the Peace Revolution community and very excited to join. To have such excellent guidance on how to meditate, and to have (distant) support from such a large community is a great opportunity to start and more importantly to continue on this journey of inner peace! I truly hope that I will remain as inspired as I feel after joining yesterday :)

I was wondering if any of you are using music to meditate, or perhaps in smaller moments of the day to relax and release the tension. If so, I would love to hear your favorites and recommendations! Or perhaps it is not advised to listen to music/nature sounds during meditation?

Hello Imke and welcome!

I actually asked that question a couple of weeks ago and my coach advised that I could use it if it helped me, but I shouldn't use it a lot because we shouldn't rely on any external elements rather than our meditation and self-awareness to keeping the mind still. I used music for relaxation a few times and it made my sessions a lot easier. Then, I saw the point on my Coach's words and now I don't need any help from other sources but myself and the words of the guides.

Hope this information helps you!

Greetings from Colombia!!!

Lots of sabai feelings for you :)

Hi Angie!

Thank you for your kind words of welcome! And also thanks for explaining to me what you and your coach have discussed, very helpful to read. I did not consider it from that point of view, but I totally agree with you guys.

I think I have no coach yet... will (s)he be appointed at a later stage of my programme? Or do I need to apply for a coach somewhere? Hmm still a bit puzzled here.

Have a great weekend Angie! And sunny greetings from the Netherlands! :)

Yes, whenever we start the self-development program and write the daily entries and meditation feedbacks, there's a coach who will read what you wrote and they will be answering your questions or clarifying stuff for you. You can get the notifications in your e-mail. Check spam, just in case.

I didn't notice until after the first week or so, but I'm sure you have a coach who will get in contact with you soon.
