Sprinkle No. 31

Your *sprinkle* this week is to take a MUSIC BATH (with or without water.)

Here’s how you take a music bath:

Go to a quiet, secluded, distraction-free place (bring a journal and pen)
Play music you love for 10 to 15 minutes
Close your eyes and allow the cleansing power of music to clear your mind

Once you’ve cleared your brain of other thoughts, pay attention to what enters.
Listen and learn.
After your “bath” take a few minutes to write in your journal

NOTE: It might be fun to try this creativity-enhancing exercise with both music you love and are familiar with and again with music that is a new genre for you. I purchased beautiful violin music by Jenny Oaks Baker over the weekend that I will be bathing in.

Enjoy (and feel free share your thoughts too!)

  1. Now this sounds like an interesting idea. I may just try this. I have fibromyalgia and one of my sensitivities is to sound. If I am in the car alone I almost always turn the radio off and sounds just really get to me sometimes. I think I might just try this though, something soothing like Suzanne Ciani (I think thats how you spell her name) piano music. It would be a nice way to do some meditation.

    People can be distraction free for 15-20 minutes? I would love to try this, perhaps it would open me to some guidance. Now to get my 10 month old and her older siblings to leave me alone…
