14 Life-Changing Free Meditation Music Tracks

"Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind,

flight to the imagination, and life to everything." - Plato

Frequencies that heal the soul

Whether you are trying to find quality meditation music for sleep, healing, or even for manifesting a desire, there are a few items you want to look for.

First, Choose your Meditation Outcome

What do you want to accomplish? Once you know what you want, then you can choose the proper music for it. I will link some AMAZING musical tracks for each of the 3 styles of meditation discussed below.

  • Sleep Meditation Music

  • Manifesting Meditation Music

  • Healing Meditation Music

  • Spiritual Awakening Music

Next, Choose the Emotional Outcome

A lot of people just play any meditation track, without giving thought to the feeling they want to attract, beforehand. For sleep meditation music, the choice is obvious but for manifesting, healing, and spiritual awakenings, you have choices.

Know your Brain Waves

We have multiple types of brainwaves. You don't want to be listening to a track that is conducive to excitement when you are trying to fall asleep. For instance, Heavy Metal music would not normally be thought of as meditation music for sleep. Likewise, a quiet tone by the babbling brook would not usually be used as a manifesting meditation.

The reason is that different types of music help elicit different types of brain waves. We normally just think something like, "Oh that music is too loud for sleep." but what we are really saying is, "That music excites me thus eliciting an emotional response that keeps me aroused in the Beta Brainwave state and not in a relaxed state that is conducive for the delta brainwave state."

Multiple Waves at the Same Time

If you look out at the ocean, you will see various sizes of waves. Some are large and some are small but you can tell when the weather is calm or stormy by the size of the majority of waves. Likewise, our brain activity isn't limited to a single type of brain wave at any given time. We have more dominant waves during specific states of consciousness but the brain produces multiple types of waves simultaneously.

Example #1: During deep sleep, delta waves are usually dominant. However, that doesn't mean other types of brain waves are silent. Beta and Alpha... and even gamma are probably still present but at much lower levels. You can see this in detail, below.

Example #2: When we are wide awake and in the middle of an exciting conversation with our friend, it's highly likely that beta waves are the more dominant waves. This doesn't exclude the frequency or presence of any other waves though. Alpha or Theta waves can still be there but in a more relaxed state.

Brainwaves Breakdown:

Delta Waves (<4 Hz):

These are high-amplitude brain waves associated with deep sleep. On an EEG, they appear as slow, large waves.

  1. Advanced Meditation: Experienced meditators may reach this state while remaining conscious.

  2. Deep, Dreamless Sleep: Deep non-REM sleep

  3. Infant Sleep: Infants spend a significant amount of time in delta sleep.

  4. Immune System Boosting Restorative Healing: Delta waves stimulate the immune system and growth hormones are released abundantly during this state.

  5. Unconscious: Unconscious or in a coma.

Theta Waves (4-8 Hz):

These waves are associated with light sleep, relaxation, and drowsiness. They are slower and less regular than Alpha waves and lower in frequency than Beta waves.

  1. Deep Meditation: Moderate to Experienced meditators usually reach this state.

  2. Light Sleep: Just before falling into a deep sleep or while waking.

  3. Daydreaming: Your mind wanders freely without directed concentration.

  4. Creative Visualization and Trance: Vivid imagery and deep awareness

  5. Hypnosis: When the conscious mind is bypassed and the subconscious mind is addressed

  6. Flow State: When involved in a task that is so absorbing you lose the sense of time and self-consciousness.

Alpha Waves (8-13 Hz):

These waves occur when a person is relaxed, calm, and not concentrating hard on anything. They are more rhythmic and regular than Theta waves.

  1. Light Meditation: New Meditators practicing mindfulness or relaxation reach this state.

  2. Deep Breathing: Breathwork exercises relax the body and mind.

  3. Pre-Sleep: In the moments before you fall asleep

  4. Light Trance: Reading a good book or watching a movie

  5. Enjoying Nature: Taking a walk in the woods or sitting by a flowing river

  6. Daydreaming: Letting your mind wander and not focused on a specific task

  7. Artistic Activities: Drawing, painting, playing or listening to music

  8. Driving: Surprisingly, you can drop off into Alpha while driving a car.

Beta Waves (13-30 Hz):

These are seen when a person is awake, alert, and actively thinking or focusing. They are faster and may have less amplitude than Alpha waves.

  1. Tasks & Problem-Solving: Complex mental activities

  2. Active Conversation: Talking to your best friend

  3. Decision Making: Evaluating options and making choices

  4. Learning: Absorbing new information or studying

  5. Physical Activity: Engaging in exercises that require coordination

  6. Anxiety: Experiencing stress or nervousness

  7. Driving: Concentrating on driving through traffic

  8. Playing: Playing video games or board games that require analytical thinking

Gamma Waves (30-100 Hz):

These are the fastest brain waves and are associated with high-level cognitive functioning, like insight and problem-solving.

  1. Intense Concentration: Tasks that require intense focus

  2. Peak Performance: Athletes and performers often experience gamma waves during moments of optimal concentration and performance.

  3. Moments of Insight: 'Aha!' moments

  4. Hyperfocus: Often seen in individuals with ADHD.

High Gamma (100 Hz and above):

While Gamma waves are usually classified from 30 to 100 Hz, some studies have observed brain activity at even higher frequencies. These are sometimes referred to as High Gamma and may be involved in higher cognitive processes.

Some forms of meditation, especially those focused on compassion and loving-kindness, have been shown to increase gamma wave activity. Meditators have entered a high gamma state while meditating which allowed them to go hundreds of deviations beyond normal gamma.

You can't Meditate with the ads

I understand you like to support your favorite musical artists by viewing advertisements. For Sleep or meditation tracks, however, we have to eliminate the ads. You don't want to be in that liminal state of consciousness, almost about to fall asleep, and then Whammo! You hear a loud and annoying ad that knocks you out of your mind.

Here are 3 ways to turn off ads.

  1. YouTube Premium - $13.99 per month as of January 2024

  2. Spotify Premium - $14.99 per month as of January 2024

  3. The Brave Browser for YouTube - (Free) as of January 2024 As of the tme this article was published, you can watch YouTube on the Brave browser without ads.

Even though I added a way to watch YouTube without ads and 'bypass the system', I highly encourage you to support artists during your non-sleep and non-meditation hours. Without support, they can't bring you the content you love. Advertisements usually help support artists. They receive 55% of revenue from the ads.

Sleep Meditation Music Tracks

Sleep Meditation Music often has a nice soft undertone without a lot of volume spikes or volume irregularities, as in upbeat or inspirational styles of music. This can often disrupt our brainwaves and keep us from falling into the Theta and Delta Brainwave states.

4 Tips to help you fall asleep faster:

  1. Establish a Sleep Routine: If you go to bed and wake up at the same time every day (Even on the weekends!), it will help you to regulate your circadian rhythms and your body's internal clock. Circadian rhythms are your internal processes that regulate the sleep-wake-sleep-wake cycle. It usually repeats every 24 hours.

  2. Create a Comfortable Sleep Environment: If you will make your bedroom dark, quiet, and cool, this will help you fall asleep faster. Turn your phone off. Avoiding bright phone screens is key because any light can interfere with the production of melatonin, a hormone that helps you sleep. Only use your bed for sleeping so that your body doesn't associate your bed with any other activities... well... except the occasional sexy time lol

  3. Relaxation Techniques: Practices like deep breathing, reading, meditation, and the soothing music below will all help calm your mind down into a relaxed state.

  4. Things to Avoid: Caffeine and nicotine are stimulants and can make it hard to fall asleep. Try not to eat or drink too much before sleeping either. Napping a few hours before bed or long naps during the day will hinder your sleep. Stress hinders sleep. Vigorous exercise close to bedtime will also be an issue.

Below, we have an example of 2 wonderful Sleep Meditation Tracks The music is right and the length is long enough for you to fall asleep.

Manifesting Meditation Music Tracks

Science tells us that we have the ability to manifest things with our thoughts and emotions.

Manifesting Meditation Music can also be called 'music to help you get into the emotional state to manifest your desires.'

You are choosing a track that lifts your spirits and gets you excited about the thing you are trying to manifest. Sometimes all this takes is a playlist that gets you in the mood and allows you to dwell upon that thing you want and feel the emotions associated with it.

The key is to make the meditation long enough that the universe will conspire in your favor and short enough to not get burnt out. I usually try to manifest in short bursts, within a longer meditation. My entire meditation may be an hour but the manifesting part may be 15 minutes.

It doesn't have to be very long because once you can obtain the EMOTION of the thing you want, that's it. You're done. You will see whatever you want to manifest in your life if you can continually attune your heart and mind accordingly.

Here are 5 tracks that I love! Close your eyes and imagine whatever you desire. Try to feel the emotion and don't stop until you feel it. If you don't know how to feel the emotion, that's ok. Simply CLICK HERE to read the tutorial.

Now listen to all 5 songs with your eyes closed and imagine the thing you want,

with ultimate passion! Feel it! You've got to feel it!

Healing Meditation Music Tracks

Length plays a major role in Healing Meditation Music. I usually choose one that is about an hour long. During the hour, I focus my mind on my chakra & endocrine system.

There is a lot of scientific data about healing our own bodies and even other people through the energies that we transmit and the energies all around us. This music helps us get into that frame of mind where we can move energy around.

The 3 videos below are ones I use regularly. The first one is an hour long and if you can sit there the entire time, with your focus on nothing, you may be pleasantly surprised at the outcome.

Spiritual Awakening Music Tracks

Spiritual awakenings, including Kundalini awakenings, are often very profound shifts in consciousness and perception. They can involve a deepening sense of connection to the self, others, and the universe.

Kundalini awakening refers to the rising of Kundalini energy from the root chakra - the base of the spine all the way to the crown of the head and out of the top of the head. This process is often associated with intense physical sensations of shaking or swaying. Every awakening is a very emotional experience. It leads to heightened states of awareness. The experience is unique for each person and can be influenced by many factors, such as religious beliefs and the use of psychoactive substances.

The music below is specifically designed to bring up this innate ability to reach the cosmos. For best practices, sit up and elongate your spine, lean your head back, close your eyes and focus your mind on the top of your head. Look into your forehead, behind your eyelids - Your eyes may begin to flicker and this is ok.

Flow with the music and follow whatever prompt you are given. The universe wants you to take the first step and once you do, you will usually be given more. If you start shaking or moving your body, relax into it and surrender to the God of the Universe.

If you are new to this type of meditation, it may feel a bit weird at first but if you can relax into the groove and feel the emotions that are trying to come out, you may be very surprised.
