Wisdom comes from a world of experiences, journeys, and mindfulness. It leads us to a more meditative state, and in turn, helps us make better decisions. It helps to inspire us to stay the course of self-improvement and discovery. Easier said than done, but once we wisely choose to set forth on that path we are able to make better decisions. Wiser decisions.
This is by far the most meditative playlist I have put together for Merkaela and it’s certainly the most interesting in terms of depth of sounds. From the opening chants of Los Cuatro Elementos, you are instantly transported to the mountains to connect with our ancestors and our creators. The song is a perfect start and a perfect way for us to open our minds and hearts for this hour and a half journey to wisdom.
More modern sounding cuts by Bjork, Radiohead, and Bon Iver make our journey a smooth one with eclectic, yet contemporary sounding cuts. Nevertheless, it’s the more earthly, ancient sounding music that makes this playlist stand out.
Deep, spiritual sounding songs like Lovesong from the Mountains by Deuter and Moonlight by Masayoshi Fujita really transport us to another plane. They demand our attention and focus. They insist on our openness.
The playlist ends with the wise words of Ziggy Marley – “True To Myself”. An uplifting anthem that brings joy and affirmation along for the ride. No matter at which point in your health and wellness journey you are, give this playlist a try and of course don’t forget to try the Wisdom Box that inspired it all.
