This is the first article in a three-part series about how to use music to enhance whatever you’re doing, whenever you’re doing it. The stereotypical depiction of meditation is sonically austere: a yogi in a remote cave, Zen monks sitting silently for hours.
Present Moment Awareness: This state is common to techniques such as Zen, Vipassana, and mindfulness, where you bring your attention to the present moment.
Intention-based Meditation: Rather focusing on the present, you bring your attention to a future desired state.
Energized Body-Mind Meditation: This is the experience of peak performance states, runner’s high, kundalini, vinyasa. Transcendence: In this state you go beyond the intellect and ego, losing sense of time and self but gaining sense of universality. Music is neither here nor there for the states of Present Moment Awareness and Transcendence. When you’re setting an intention in meditation, the goal is to get so clear on what you want that it absolutely has to happen. Music has incredible ability to push your brain into a flow state—out of whatever pains or aches you are feeling and into a place where your mind is above and beyond it. Go for repetitive music with a strong rhythm, ideally starting slow and building up faster and faster.
Lyrics are fine, but make sure it’s driving and inspiring you to push hard through the physical discomfort and into the blissful state on the other side. Over and over again people say to me, “I can’t find music any more that’s like the music I listened to when I was younger.

And so if you’re finding that music isn’t hitting you in the same way, it’s not because the music isn’t as good anymore. Google Play Music provides free, ad-supported radio for what you’re doing, how you’re feeling, or what you want to hear. YOGANONYMOUS is an open platform that allows teachers, studios, event promoters, and bloggers a place to interact with the community at large - we'd love to have you in the crew. You’re body is energized, you’re heart is beating, you’re doing things, but at the same time your mind is completely calm. You don’t want to be thinking about what music is trying to say; you just want to go with the feeling.
Let the music establish a grounded state, then introduce whatever intention you have on top of that.
That might mean focusing on an expanding a sense of compassion and gratitude, or it could be visualizing how you will achieve a particular goal.
You see this commonly with chant and trance-based traditions such as capoeira, voodoo, and EDM, where it starts slow and builds into a driving pulse.
I can’t find music I love as much anymore.” A lot of the reason you loved that music is because you had amazing experiences when you were listening to it.
You need to go and find some new amazing experiences and have new music playing in the background. Instantly start radio stations based on songs, artists, or albums, or browse by genre, mood, activity, decade, and more.
But for Intention-based Meditation and Energized Body-Mind Meditation, music can be highly effective.

I have found that music is key to accessing these somewhat contradictory states simultaneously.
I find it helpful if there’s an underlying drone sound, a sort of hum, which could be an organ or a synth or a harmonium, and then the melody hooks on top of that. Let the music inform the state of your mind: steady and calm, but also active and singularly focused.
You were falling in love for the first time, you were going on adventures, you were going to parties and dancing, and that music was the soundtrack. Then that music will have powerful emotional resonance because it will be associated with those beautiful memories.
Following in his father’s footsteps, Charlie‘s has devoted his life to innovative teaching. You can find this in traditional Indian kirtan, or mellow, downtempo electronic music, or even church music.
He studied at the Australian institute of Music, The Sydney Conservatorium of Music, and attained his degree in Biology at Maharishi University of Management, where he helped create their multidisciplinary degree in Sustainable Living, now one of their most popular programs. Charlie has spent the two last decades studying all the major meditation practices of the world. From his studies, he has distilled the major meditation practices to their essence to teach these gems in easily accessible form.
