Kind Apps : Relax Melodies for Sleep, Meditation & Yoga!



Relax Melodies for Sleep, Meditation & Yoga
(clicking the above link will take you to the app store)

I've been using this app for a few weeks now & I can't say enough about it. Truth be told, meditation is hard for me, it always has been, lots of chatter, lots of getting down on myself for not being able to quiet my mind -- & that was before my beautiful boys came along. When they came, sadly, I gave up even trying. If I was able to slip away for a bit, while Kurt watched them, I could still hear them, sometimes even over our hurricane fan, joyously running & jumping downstairs, their frustrations, their giggling.

I was in BLISS when I happened upon this app. I slip on my headphones & I am transported to paradise.

Throughout my life, even though I can't play but a lick of music, some of my most spiritually-connected experiences were sound-oriented - so you can see why this is huge for me!

I also use this app as a mechanism for relaxation.

Last week before we traveled to the other side of the state for the holiday, I stood on my back stoop, closed my eyes, selected a melody that I created called, Oceans Deep (Hi Raven!) & I was there.

Standing in the sand, waves crashing, a drum circle in the distance, the breeze through my hair, seagulls flying overhead, the sun warming my skin.

I was standing feet from the ocean & I was in love.

Thoughts came in & I smiled, gently letting them go, as they were mostly good thoughts, beach memories or memories yet to be made.

Just moments before, I was a ball of nerves, trying to pull a few business-related loose ends tight, before we embarked.

Instant relaxation = Invaluable.

My two favorite features in this app are:

1. You can combine up to 10 sounds to create your own melody from 82 high-quality ambient sounds including 6 binaural beats frequencies for brainwave entrainment. You can change the volume on every sound to get the most personalized relaxation experience ever. The sounds range from ocean waves, a cat purring, thunderstorm, rain, chanting, drums, white, pink & brown noise, a dryer running, the list just goes on & on!

2. You can save your melodies! Which you can see above the 3 I've saved so far (can you tell that water calms me?!)

This app has literally changed the way I meditate, all for the better. Also, a big plus, if I am having trouble sleeping, it's pure gold.

Beautiful stuff! Enjoy!

Love,

I love this app, too! My body wakes up @ 10 p.m., but I have to get up for work @ 6 a.m. It was always so hard for me to sleep, because I couldn't stop thinking about all the things I needed to do the next day. Not a problem anymore!

Thanks for the recommendation. I've been using http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/meditation/id398067717?mt=8 this one but I'd like to mix it up a bit.

I love the relax melodies app! I started using while I was pregnant and keep using it for my baby to help us both sleep.

Does this app use my internet while I use it? I would hate to have a large phone bill with this app, but it sounds so great!
