Sacred time for meditation with rhythm
Setting up a regular drumming meditation practise will improve your health and well-being. Many people struggle to silence the mind and may be frustrated and anxious at the thought of trying and trying to meditate. So why not try meditating with sound? It may be an in road or a stepping stone to help you move towards a place where you can quiet the mind and feel more comfortable.
Setting up your sacred drumming space
Set up a space in your home where it’s your space and no one else’s – make it your sacred space. Add your favourite chair, colour, picture, scented candles or incense. Add your personality to this space to inspire you.
Put 30 minutes a side each day for the next three months, just for you and your drumming meditation time. It might be early in the morning, afternoon or evening, make it the same time each day to help get you into a routine. Remember turn off your mobile. This time is to unplug from the things around you and tune in to you, what you are feeling. Prepare for each drumming session by bringing in an intention. You might like to write down what makes you unique, a spiritual poem or an affirmation. Be creative. For more ideas on affirmation rhythms, check out Energise Your Life with Rhythm, Music and Sound.
Research shows that drumming at 80 beats per minute or less can increase deep relaxation, meditation, imagination and concentration. To help get you into the groove of these tempos put some music on that is soothing. Take a listen to the affirmation music from my page; there are 16 affirmation play-along tracks that can help guide you with your drumming meditation practise.
