Ladder of the Soul
for Relaxation, Meditation & Integration
relaxation and meditation music performed on the Celtic
harp by master harpist Paul Baker. Following in the tradition
of "The Tranquil Harp", "The
Ladder of the Soul" presents eight improvisations
in keys corresponding to the energy centers of the body.
The improvisations are designed to ground your body, open
and tune your mind, balance your emotions and soothe your
spirit. The pure and ancient sound of the harp, sometimes
called "the ladder between earth and heaven",
is ideal for relaxation, meditation and integration. Each
track is provided with a suggested meditation.
to use "The Ladder of the Soul"
Ladder of the Soul" is designed to work with the emotional
body. Each improvisation is tuned to a different chakra,
and is played at a slow rhythmic tempo that helps the
body relax and let go, and moves the brain into alpha
state. The rich tapestry of melodic elements engage mind,
body and spirit in a process of integration that allows
emotions to surface, move, flow, and resolve into new
patterns of clarity. Each track offers you the opportunity
to meditate on a specific quality and affirmation. Find
a comfortable body position, and close your eyelids. Become
aware of your breathing, and begin to match its rhythm
with the music. Using your breath, bring the music into
the area of the body associated with the chakra, allowing
the music to fill that area. Visualize the corresponding
color as well. Set an intention of coming to a new understanding
of the quality or affirmation upon which you are focusing.
