Healing Music

This is primarily for my Reiki Practitioner friends, although I encourage anyone to answer. I'll also be cross-posting this like whoa in an attempt to get lots of feedback.

I'm really embarking on my healing path at the moment, and almost all of my passion and energy since Solstice has been focused on getting my Reiki work kick-started. I want to begin holding classes and healing sessions, and I would like your recommendations for CDs. I prefer music without vocals that can be played quietly in the background while the person is focused on their own spiritual experience. Since I am primarily working with Medicine Reiki, I would like to have some Native American music, but that is sadly an area that I'm quite ignorant in.

Looking through a catalogue I picked up at church, I'm considering Elivia Melodey's Terra Firma cd or possibly Steven Halpern's In The Om Zone. I would eventually like to accumulate several different albums with different sounds and energies.

Please share your experiences or recommendations! Thank you!

Robbie Robertson and the Red Road Ensemble did an excellent album, but I don't know if it's wordless/mellow enough for your purposes. Still worth having, though. :)

I'd love to have a copy! I mentioned to Piratical Santa that I could use some of that kind of music... LOL

I have two recommendations, neithter of which are Indian themed:

* Steve Halpern: Chakra Suite - New Age wall-of-keyboards, but well done, and I've read a lot of reviews saying it promotes a healing atmosphere. I would expect his other stuff to be good too, I'll check out "om zone"
* OM - The Reverberation of Source: Master Charles - This is an amazing disc, it features gentle sitar, ocean waves and long meditative "om"s, the sound it mixed to promote alpha brain waves, and it works very well for me. If I put it on when working on someone, I just absorb completely into the act of massage, there is no outside world.

I have not tried either of these with energy work (I haven't done much yet), but they will be my first ones to try when I do. I expect that they will work very well.

Thank you! You're the second to say good things about Steven Halpern. I'll look for the other one you suggested.

Are you planning on getting into energy work? Anything specific?

At some point in the next few years I want to start the four-year program at the Brennan School. I've been planning that for a while, and I went to a workshop there in April that was really amazing. It conformed my intention.

In the meantime I want to get at least my Reiki I attunement to keep developing my skills and sensitivities.

I'm not familiar with that school, so thanks for pointing it out. I looked a bit, but I hope to look at it closely. I'm beginning to teach reiki, so if you might be interested in Medicine Reiki, let me know.

I tried to email you but it bounced back. Can you email me at Ahavah_Ehyeh@livejournal.com ?

Here are some of my suggestions...
I recommend Earth Spirit by R Carlos Nakai also, it's fab.

I also like Steven Halpern--Higher Ground is nice.
I rather like Kamal. He has one called Shamanic Healing
http://www.amazon.com/Shamanic-Healing-Kamal/dp/B00004BZ0R/ref=sr_1_31/102-9661262-5204166?ie=UTF8&s=music&qid=1183749555&sr=1-31

(I got it from eMule). I also really like his Reiki Whale Dreaming and Reiki Whale Song
http://www.amazon.com/Reiki-Whale-Dreaming-Kamal/dp/B000AOEMW8/ref=sr_1_4/102-9661262-5204166?ie=UTF8&s=music&qid=1183749595&sr=1-4

(got them from eMule also shhh).
I also really like Medwyn Goodall. His native stuff is a little more upbeat, but he makes some great music, and has a wide variety. (Om, Medicine Woman 1,2 & 3, Rhythm of the Ancients, Ancient Nazca: Inca Mysteries etc)

Wow, thank you so much for all the links! I can't wait to check them out. Looks like a lot of good stuff.

You are welcome. Do you eMule or limewire or anything like that? I've gotten quite a bit of Medwyn Goodall and Steven Halpern (and Kamal) that way, though I do plan on purchasing some in the future *grin*

No, I'm still bumming internet on my mom's computer, so I can't really download things. :(
