Your iPod or CD player can be an invaluable help to meditation - but only if you are prepared to give all your attention to the music and not treat it as mere background! Give some thought to choosing the correct piece, whether instrumental, vocal, classical, sacred, folk or whatever. There are no hard and fast rules here. Dance music or the foot-tapping, hand-clapping variety can be useful for getting rid of nervous energy, but must be followed up by at least ten minutes of stillness if it is to be of real benefit. Tranquil instrumental or religious music can bring you more immediately into meditative silence.
