Religion and spirituality is a big and important part of many people’s lives.
Without wanting to start any discussion about religion (it is not our intend nor our wish to make any assumptions about different religions and beliefs, as well as the people practicing it), we want to have a look at how ambient music – or more precisely: ambient soundscapes – can help you get in touch with your spiritual side. For us and this purpose, it doesn’t matter what you believe in. Ambient music and atmospheres are supposed to foster the positivity and peace of mind you aim to achieve when getting in touch with your spiritual side.
This article will present you with some of the spirituality and religious themed ambient soundscapes our users have created. Maybe you will find one that perfectly suits your taste and need for calm and peace.
Ambient Atmospheres For Spiritual Meditation
From soundscapes inspired by Pagan rituals, over the peaceful sounds of Christian monasteries, to the zen of a Buddhist temple. If you are looking for background sounds and ambient noise that will help you feel more spiritual and at ease, one or some of the following may be just after your taste.
This ambient soundscape features soft choirs and natural sounds like birds singing, crickets, the sounds of a small stream and wind. This is mixed up with soft wind chimes.
Gregorian chants are the main focus of this ambience, however a crackling fire, the occasional sounds of a church bell ringing and a book’s page being turned add a livelier touch to it. A perfect mix for studying or some reading.
A dark, cello drone is paired up with bamboo and metal wind chimes, the sounds of a stream and occasional phrases of music, gongs and chimes.
Desert wind and a tumbling creek build the base of this ambient atmosphere. Occasionally, a gong, singing bowls and an Arabian phrase of a flute can be heard.
The overall setting of this atmosphere is an open and friendly forest during day time. A river gurgles nearby while different birds (owls, singing birds, crows and woodpeckers) set the scene almost perfectly. A randomly played, harmonic rumble, rounds up this spiritual ambient noise mix.
Rain and deep throat chanting dominate this ambient atmosphere. In the distance you can hear wolves howling in the night while an eagle screeches overhead. Occasionally, the cracking of thunder is announcing a dawning storm.
If you close your eyes, you can feel like you are at a beach. Seagulls cry overhead and the waves crash ashore. Over all of this lies a heavenly and peaceful singing choir.
