This music is based on nature sounds and is very
relaxing and beautiful. I also noticed that my creativity
increased. Probably because Iím sleeping so well and am
well rested and more alert. I feel that these CDs almost
clear the fog in your brain. It is like a vacation for
What does this music sound like? It is all different. I

If sounds swirl around you in the dance of spinning
mermaids, that is the best description for what happens
when I listen to the Alpha Meditation selection. There is

also rotate around you like planets. It is fascinating and
There are sounds of waves crawling up beaches mingled
with singing bowls, birds, raindrops, flutes, echoes from
beyond time and space. I see flowers blooming in gardens
filled with orchids and even sea creatures playing out in

Dynamic Bass Boost and the music becomes much more
delicate and relaxing.
This CD sounds like beautiful notes of pure sounds that

I also have enjoyed falling asleep to: Keith Jarett:

Love Away by Robert Shahidi. It is amazing, I fall
completely asleep just as the last words are playing and

DVD or Video. It is amazing. It knocks me out because when
Iím done exercising, all I want to do is climb into my
soft warm bed.
