Good day yogis!
Music plays such an important part in our lives. It sets the mood, or changes it. It can illicit feelings from us, and turns videos into epic masterpieces. Simply put, music is one of the most powerful tools we have for making an immediate change in our lives.
As such, every so often I'm going to be sharing some of my favorite songs, mantras or instrumentals that create a space of happiness, peace, and healing. Enjoy!
Har Har Mukanday - Mirabai Ceiba
Darshan - Ajeet Kaur
The whole album is fabulous, but possibly my favorite track is this one:
Guru Om - Donna De Lory
I am obsessed with Donna De Lory's music. Her voice is magical and I love her spin on mantras. She has several albums chock-full of goodies, but this song, from her Sanctuary album, is beautiful in its simplicity:
Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu - Will Blunderfield
Suddhosi Buddhosi - The Love Keys
My favorite song is Come Whoever You Are, a really lovely song based on a Rumi poem. But Suddhosi Buddhosi is equally enchanting.
Jai-Jagdeesh - Dharti Hai
This mantra helps you to pull energy upward from the earth and downward from the ethers, joining at and projecting out from the heart. This is exactly how we channel energy efficiently through the chakras. The heart chakra is the balance point, uniting the lower vibrating physical manifestation/earth energies and the higher vibrational energies of the mind and spirit. When balanced, we are both grounded and expansive, existing in harmony with the inherent duality of life in the physical.
Shamanic Drumming World - Shamanic Tranquility Dreams
This subtle shamanic drumming album keeps you motivated and relaxed all at the same time. Some tracks bring the beat to the forefront and others will lull you to sleep. Great background music for a meditative practice.
