Recorded: Tingle Forest in Western Australia
Duration: 20 minutes
Composer: Derick Mocke
As you listen to this 20-minute recording and are guided into a relaxed alpha state, you will become very relaxed, but at the same time very aware of what is happening around you. The alpha state has many benefits. It is ideal for learning, as your mind will be clear and receptive to information. It is also in this state that your brain lets its guard down, becoming more open to suggestion. The guided meditation will help you remain focused on positive and harmonious thoughts that will leave you feeling calm and in control of your life.
When you listen carefully, you will hear some gentle tapping sounds amongst all the other sounds. These sounds are very unique: they were composed by Mother Nature herself.
This unique idea came from Derick Mocke, a very talented musician, artist and scientist. Derick, who composed the music for these recordings, asked this question: “What would happen if we take nature sounds and convert them into music, using man-made instruments? Would it have a melody? If so, what would it sound like?”
So Derick set to work, converting a recording of nature sounds into digital data. He then slowed down these sounds and transformed them into various musical instruments, such as a Glockenspiel, Marimba, Harp and Bells.
The result is simply outstanding! As stated by Derick:
“All I really did was supply the musical instruments. Mother Nature composed her own song.”
So as you listen to Mother Nature’s song, allow yourself to relax. Do not feel guilty about taking time out of your day for YOU. If you feel any form of guilt, your body will only become burdened with more tension. This will hinder your rest and restoration process.
So when you are ready, sit back, unwind and enjoy this experience.
