Guided meditations focus on spoken word. In a typical guided meditation recording an instructor reads a scripted meditation. hence when choosing the background soundtrack try to choose the music that does not have a strong melody or vocal and won’t interfere with your voice. Typically the music genres that work best for guided meditations include ambient, relaxing piano or guitar, as well as world music (typically Indian or Eastern), and new age.
Ideally look for soft, calm, non-intrusive background music with simple chords or even drones without prominent lead melody. The purpose of such music is to set the mood and fill-in the silent gaps between the meditation instructions voiceover without dominating or distracting.
Another option to add an additional layer of realism and sophistication to your guided meditation is to enhance the soundtrack with relaxing nature sounds, like rain, ocean waves, or birds.
