If you're struggling to meditate, introducing sound can change everything. Sound is vibration and touches every part of our body, and when we use it in meditation, it helps us feel more connected to ourselves and the world around us.
Sound has always been there for us—it's just that sometimes we're not paying attention to it. We tend to think of sound as something from outside us—from an iPod, a television, or an alarm clock—but your body generates everything you hear. Your voice, your breath, and even the wind rustling through trees are all sounds from within you (we are all connected).
When you meditate with music or nature sounds (like rain), what happens is that you become more aware of these sounds inside yourself. This awareness helps bridge the external sounds around you and the internal ones inside your body. As this bridge gets stronger, so does your ability to connect with other people and be present in your life in general!
