There are many reasons why music while meditating helps people relax and meditate completely.
First of all, while you do not have to have meditation music, it can help if you have something soothing going on. Many people have found that the music begins to set them into meditation mode because they use the same music all the time, hence, allowing them to relax sooner.
Also, as much as we would like a completely silent area to meditate, exterior sounds often come through. This means that your subconscious is actually checking in on those sounds to check for danger, or an alert signal. By adding music you can actually reduce your subconscious mind’s worry over extraneous sounds.
Other people start the music early, because it allows them to sit down and actually meditate. While they finish up chores around the house, or other duties, there body is starting to recognize that it’s time to meditate and they find that they actually get the medidation done.
Other people feel that music during meditation is the wrong thing to do. If you’re curious whether it will help your meditation, you’ll have to try a variety of different types of music and sounds. Many types of music are available for download on the Internet, this can allow you a variety until you find the music that works for you, or find out if it actually hinders you.
If your curious as to whether your particular form of meditation can use music as a tool, try it and see if it helps. Then you may need to speak to your meditation supervisor. Often, they may have helpful hints as to what type of music or sounds you should use, or be able to explain to you why you shouldn’t use music at all.
