I have tried to include a variety of instruments, styles, and moods. I use these tracks on the Source course and events, and watch as God moves throught them, bringing healing and transformation.

Although I have been practicing the art of soaking for a few years, I have been really exploring music for this type of meditation lately. Soaking is a wonderful metaphor for immersing yourself in the love of God. My favourite thing to do is grab a quilt and a cushion and lie on the sofa, which I used to do when my kids had their afternoon naps. I knew that whatever dishes and cooking and laundry had to be done, it was not worth it on a personal level to miss this out. And my family benefited from not having a cranky mum.

I would throw on a CD of music, not the loud bouncy sort I often favour at other times, but peaceful, calming, relaxing music. And I would picture myself in the embrace of the Father, the perfect, kind, gentle Daddy. I would receive the waves of love that came with every pulse of his heartbeat, and breathe in the refreshing of His Spirit.

In the beginning I favoured the ‘I Am’ CD from John Paul Jackson, where he reads out 365 different names and attributes of God, and often I would use music with lyrics, like Misty Edwards and her ‘Relentless’ album. These and others blessed me deeply!

Now I am exploring all kinds of lyric-less music, as it encourages me to a different place spiritually. No longer am I focused on the language centre of my brain, but it takes me to a place of being, an awareness of my heart and spirit communicating and receiving love.
