• The Primordial Sound Meditation.

    The Easiest Way to Meditate

    Once you learn to quiet your mind with the help of a Concentration technique, your mind starts to vibrate at lower Brain frequencies (Alpha). In this state the human brain vibrates in harmony with the Earth and the Ocean. I found that the easiest way to get to a meditative state (the state of calm and relaxation) is to listen to the sounds of the nature –  ocean, birds, rain, waterfall, river etc.
    It is that simple!

    Enjoy the sounds of Nature!

    The theory behind primordial sound treatment is that the mind can return to the quantum level, introduce certain sounds that may have become distorted somewhere along the line, and thus have a profound healing influence in the body.

    White Noise

    White noise sounds break up stuck frequencies (stuck emotions in particular) – Ocean, streams, rivers, waterfalls, and wind.

    Animal Sounds

    When slowed down a whole other world of detail appears. It has been proven that bird songs actually trigger the metabolism of plants. Sonic Bloom sells stereo system to play to crops and have not only increased crop yields by and average of 300%, fruits and vegetables contain a major increase in vitamins and minerals.

    Some say the sound of whales are holding together the planet.

    Dolphins are used for birthing babies and they transmit frequencies into the newborn.

    You can imagine that all of these sounds are doing way more than attracting mates. They are a key aspect of the natural sound fabric of our planet. They are affecting us and other parts of nature in ways that we still don’t know.

    A study of sounds in the jungle showed that all of the sounds of all of the animals covered every frequency in the full frequency spectrum of sound (20-20,000 hertz). In fact, each animal had its own frequency range. And, if an animal or insect species died out, another species would then take over that free frequency range.

    Breath Concentration Meditation Steps

    1. Regularity of time, place and practice are important. Regularity conditions the mind to slow down its activities with a minimum of delay.
    2. The most effective times are early dawn and dusk, when the atmosphere is charged with special spiritual force. If it is not feasible to sit for meditation at these times, choose an hour when you are not involved with daily activities, and a time when the mind is apt to be calm.
    3. Try to have a separate room for meditation. As meditation is repeated, the powerful vibrations set up will be lodged in the area; an atmosphere of peace and purity will be felt.
    4. When sitting, face North or East in order to take advantage of favorable magnetic vibrations. Sit in a steady, comfortable, cross-legged position with spine and neck erect but not tense.
    5. Before beginning, command the mind to be quiet for a specific length of time. Forget the past, present and future.
    6. Consciously regulate the breath. Begin with five minutes of deep abdominal breathing to bring oxygen to the brain. Then slow it down to an imperceptible rate.
    7. Keep the breathing, rhythmic, inhale for three seconds and exhale for three seconds. Regulation of breath also regulates the flow of prana, the vital energy.
    8. Allow the mind to wander at first. It will jump around, but will eventually become concentrated, along with the concentration of prana.
    9. Don’t force the mind to be still, as this will set in motion additional brain waves, hindering meditation.
    10. Select a focal point on which the mind may rest. For people who are intellectual by nature, this may be the Ajna Chakra., the point between the eyebrows. For more emotional people, use the Anahata or Heart Chakra. Never change this focal point.
    11. Focus on a neutral or uplifting object, holding the image in the place of concentration. If using a Mantra, repeat it mentally, and co-ordinate repetition with the breath. If you dont have a personalized Manta, use Om. Although mental repetition is stronger, the mantra may be repeted aloud if one becomes drowsy. Never change the Mantra.
    12. Repetition will lead to pure thought, in which sound vibration merges with thought vibration, without awareness of meaning. Vocal repetition progresses through mental repetition to telepathic language, and from there to pure thought.
    13. With practice, duality disappears and Samadhi, or the superconscious state, is reached. Do not become impatient, as this takes a long time.
    14. In Samadhi one rests in the state of bliss in which the Knower, the Knowledge, and the Known become one. This is the superconcious state reached by mystics of all faiths and persuasions.

    If you meditate for half an hour daily, you will be able to face life with peace and spiritual strength. Meditation is the most powerful mental and nerve tonic. Divine energy freely flows to the adept during meditation, and exerts a benign influence on the mind, nerves, sense organs and body. It opens the door to intuitive knowledge and realms of eternal bliss. The mind becomes calm and steady.

    7 Types of Meditation

    If you still aren’t sure of which sounds the best, try them all out! Make note of how you feel before and after each style, and understand what works for you. Allow yourself to go with the flow. Some important questions to ask yourself when figuring out your meditation style include: Do you like to move, or does stillness work better for you? How about vocalizations? Do you want to focus on something or nothing? Your particular way into meditation may be different than what the mainstream is doing, but getting the benefits of stress relief, reduced anger, feelings of well-being, lowered blood pressure and so on is what is important for you.

    Focused Meditation

    This is a rather general label for any kind of meditation that includes focus on some aspect of the five senses (visualizations are the most popular). For instance, you might be asked to focus on an image of a flower, a flame, or moving water. These are all ways to keep the mind gently focused so you are less likely to become distracted. You may also be asked to concentrate on the feel of something — your fingers against each other, the way your breath feels moving in and out of your body, or the alignment of your spine. Sound is another method, as you may focus on a simple sound (a gentle gong, a bell, or music) or sounds from nature.

    Guided Meditation

    This style is a focused meditation that is not self-led. Usually a teacher or instructor will take you through it during a class you attend, like in meditation for beginners. It usually includes one or more of the techniques in focused meditation. The instructor will lead you through breathing instructions and some kind of visualization, body scan, or sound, or a mantra.

    Spiritual Meditation

    In layman’s terms, this is known as prayer. You may have done it growing up, or you may practice it as part of your religion. While it isn’t the exact same thing, there are familiar elements to this style of meditation. Essentially, you dive into a quieter, more reflective state, whether that’s at home or your place of worship. To practice spiritual meditation, you begin with the words you have heard or said yourself in your worship, but instead of stopping at the end of a prayer or song, keep sitting quietly. You can ask a question and listen for an answer. Sometimes people feel that an answer comes from outside of them through the Divine, God, or the Universe. Other people simply enumerate what they are grateful for. Use your experience of prayer to access that quiet, meditative mind space.

    Mantra Meditation

    This practice is a label for when you use a sound or a set of sounds, repetitively, to enter and stay within the meditative state, as seen in the body mantra method, for example. Against popular belief, using only silence when practicing meditation isn’t the only way to meditate. Mantras are a great focusing tool, and they have a long history within the tradition of meditation. People usually chant either quietly, whispering their words, or loudly and proudly, turning the mantras into a more rhythmic song. Again, however, there is no one way to do it. Saying your mantras in your head is perfectly fine, or in a different language, or in a simple onomatopoeia like “Ohm.” You can even make up sounds or words if you like or take them from another language; it all depends on what the sound or words mean to you personally, and whether they are a helpful way to prevent distracting thoughts.

    Transcendental Meditation

    When scientists tout the benefits of meditation, this is the type that’s most likely been studied. It’s certainly the most popular form, with over 5 million practitioners worldwide. It’s also usually easy to find free or low-cost classes in most places. It is a little more formalized than some of the other meditation types mentioned here, but it useful for beginning or exploring meditation if you are new to it. They have an official site, which states this form of meditation as “… a simple, natural, effortless procedure practiced 20 minutes twice each day while sitting comfortably with the eyes closed. It’s not a religion, philosophy, or lifestyle.”

    Movement Meditation

    This form is exactly what it sounds like; it’s the active branch of meditation. It’s a chance to move around the room, the house, a woodsy path, or the garden (or wherever) — usually in a relatively simple and relaxing way, rather than getting your heart rate up. Walking meditation, most types of yoga, gardening, and even basic housecleaning tasks can be moving meditations. This meditation type is great for people who already sit all day at work and want to move and meditate when not at a desk, and for those people who find sitting still to be a distraction from being able to meditate at all.

    Mindfulness Meditation

    This is a type of meditation that is an ongoing part of life, rather than a separate activity. It is more of a lifestyle than anything else. It’s a great way to address stress in the moment it is happening, and over time becomes more like a mental skill than a focused time set apart from the rest of your day. It can be easier to get into a mindful state of mind if one has already been practicing other forms of meditation separately.
