If you love relaxing music, you'll love these free meditation music downloads I've got for you.
It’s pretty cool to get something for nothing, and why not? especially since we spend a ton of money buying stuff through the year.
And the good news is you can try different types before you buy, with my top recommendations.
How to Get Your Free Downloads
To save you trawling the Internet for meditation music freebies, I’ve put together a list of great tracks you can try right now.
There's one small catch of course: You will need to enter your real email address in exchange.
This is how it works. You know the deal: companies want to be able to contact you afterwards to see if you like the product and are interested in actually paying for some of their magical music.
Plus, the store will send you download to your email address – so giving a fake one won't work.
Right then. It's time to get your mouse ready to click-on-through and fill up your iTunes or Windows Media Player library with some awesome music.
Lastly, the majority of the tracks contains special frequencies that help you relax, focus, or simply feel more balanced, depending on the track.
1.Binaural Beats Meditation
If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you’ll know I love these guys.
They produce a diverse range of meditation music, all with beautiful sound design
Specifically, this company uses binaural beats, which are frequencies laid underneath the music that help shift the brain into different states. There's a bunch of information on my site about this so I won't go too much deeper here.
For the full benefits you will need to use headphones, but you can also listen through speakers to enjoy the music as background music for relaxation, studying, etc. I often put on the tracks when I'm tidying up, writing, chilling, whatever.
You can download a free 10-minute version of the ultra-relaxing Chill Pill track, along with a user guide that explains more about their special music and how to get the most out of your listening experience.
Ennora has been going for well over 10 years and have a lovely little catalogue of meditation music.
Again, they use the special binaural beats frequencies and, in exchange for your email address, you can get a 10-minute version of Recharge & Refresh.
This track is designed to calm your mind, helping you relieve stress and removing the mind's preoccupation with negative thought patterns.
The result is a balanced, positive state of mind from which to carry on with your day.
3. iAwake Technologies
iAwake is an acquired taste at times and they do some weird and wonderful stuff that pushes the boundaries, so to speak.
Their Profound 3.0 meditation program is very popular and I’ve also experimented with their Neuro-Flow, Deep Delta, and Journey to The Center of the Self tracks.
Good customer support and always a new release every couple of months, I've become a fan over the last couple of years. If you're interested, I have an in-depth review of iAwake here.
The good news is you can download iAwake Explore, which is 3 tracks (free) designed to give you a taste of the iAwake experience of relaxation, optimal performance, spiritual development, and healing.
Yep, they offer 3 freebies! Can't be bad, can it?
MindVibrations creates meditation music with a focus on healing.
The music is created in accordance with the ancient solfeggio scale.
This scale has its roots in early music and has been explored and championed by composers like Mozart and Bach. Specific frequencies on the scale promote different aspects of healing.
They also sell music tuned in the 432 Hz frequencies, also very popular due to its natural resonance with the Earth and innate relaxation properties.
In a clinical study, 432 Hz music was show to have a significant calming effect – so great for stress relief (3).
It's wonderfully relaxing and I listen to their stuff regularly.
They generously offer a 15-minute version of their Inner Healing (432 Hz) track. Click on the ‘Free Download' tab on the navigation menu at the top of the page.
5.Brain Sync – Conscious Evolution
Brain Sync offers guided meditation music too, which can be hit and miss because you have to really connect with the voice for it to be effective.
If the voiceover doesn't sit well with me, I just can't get in the zone. Fortunately, Kelly's voice is lovely and most people think the same.
You can her guided meditations free, in exchange for your email of course.
You will be sent 4 over the course of 4 days, drip-fed to encourage you to really experience each one properly.
When you get to the home page, click on the ‘free guided meditation' link at the top to go to the sign-up box.
6. Unexplainable Store
Unexplainable Store is a tad whacky and mystical.
They have downloads for everything from thyroid function to law of attraction to mindfulness meditation practice.
This store sells binaural beats music and also isochronic tones, another type of brainwave entrainment that doesn't require headphones. I have a post on the differences between the two that you can read here.
My full review of what's on offer at this store can be found here.
Anyway, Unexplainable Store offers an isochronic video and download absolutely free. All you have to do is subscribe to the newsletter and they'll send you the goodies.
Downloading & Listening Tips
So there you have it, that's 8 super-awesome free meditation music downloads!
You can start a great small library with a mixture of different types of meditation music here. This will give you a feel for which stores you like and which you might like to buy from in the future.
How to Download to Your Devices
All of these downloads will come in the universal mp3 format, which they will be compatible across all digital devices.
When you receive your download link, it is best to download the file to your computer. You can then add it to iTunes or WMP, or whatever player you use, and then you can plugin your phone, tablet or iPod/mp3 player and transfer the file over.
You can even burn a CD if you have a CD burner on your computer.
If you have an Android phone or tablet you will probably be able to download the file directly to that device. iOS devices like the iPhone and iPad, on the other hand, don't allow this as standard.
There are some apps like Aloha which act as an alternative browser that will help you download directly to the device, but my advice is to download to your computer first, then drop into iTunes, then plugin your device and transfer the meditation music that way.
5 Quick Listening Tips
Obviously meditation music is designed for different aspects of relaxation: meditation, focus, anxiety and stress relief, etc. So the best tip I can offer is to create an environment conducive to relaxation.
I recommend doing the following:
- Switch of the TV or radio.
- Put your phone on silent.
- Use headphones to block out external noise, preferably the closed-back type.
- To meditate, choose a room or location with minimal distraction and tell others likely to disturb you that you'll be unavailable for a while.
- Read the user guides / advice on the websites of the providers. On product description pages there is usually information on the best way to use the music.
