How To Use Music as a Guide for Meditation

Create your sacred time and space without distractions.
1. As the music begins, become aware of your breath and any tension in your body. Imagine the stress and tension gently flowing from,your body.
2. Observe your breath becoming more natural, quiet and even.
3. Be aware you are surrounded by the Presence of Divine Love. Accept this awareness and receive the Gifts which it brings.
4. Allow the notes and rhythm of the music to slowly and gently play over your body, touching any places of need.
5. Journal any thoughts feelings,images or words that emerged. Express with colorful drawings, magazine images,etc
6. Complete with a Prayer or Ritual of gratitude that is comfortable for you.
