From the time I was a little girl, I remember being able to hear, smell and see things nobody else could. Apparently born with hyper senses, it wasn't until I was much older that I realized everyone else didn't notice the same little things, and couldn't hear the ticks of a clock, or know what the neighbor's were having for dinner.
Depending on the occasion, my supersonic hearing can be a blessing or a curse. For instance, when my family flies in to the airport - I know a good 15-30 minutes before the plane even lands that they are here :-) On the flip side, trying to meditate when you can hear the drum of an aircraft engine taxiing on the runway can be exceptionally frustrating.
I do various things like use earplugs to meditate, but I feel most focused when I have light drumming, nature sounds, or a guided meditation playing. Thanks to the Moon I have plenty of guided meditations to work with, but I would like to add to my unguided meditation collection.
With such a large group of like minded individuals here, I hoped to get some recommendations from those of you who use unguided meditation music. Whether it is Celtic, drumming, babbling brooks and birds, I would love if you would please share any lyric-less/instrumental music that you either enjoy or find helpful in your meditation practices!
