Sssh… It’s time to Meditate with ASMR!

Have you heard of the ASMR phenomenon taking over social media?

If not, don’t worry because I will tell you all about it.

You’ve probably seen videos on YouTube or TikTok where someone recorded themselves giving a pleasant sensory experience like tapping their fingers with different faces.

ASMR stands for Autonomic Sensory Meridian Response.

Physiologically, it brings a sensation of pleasure that is induced by learning to recognize specific sounds.

It’s still an “unstudied” concept, but there are millions of ASMR videos online.

One study from the University of Sheffield in England says that ASMR creates “tingling sensations at the crown of the head, in response to a range of audiovisual triggers such as whispering, tapping, and hand movements.”

ASMR and The Mind

The possible health benefits of ASMR videos are one of the main factors contributing to their current popularity.

Many individuals claim that watching these videos has improved their ability to manage mental health issues including sadness and anxiety.

Some claim that watching ASMR videos can help with insomnia symptoms.

In addition, many individuals on the Internet rave about how ASMR helps them activate the feeling that will improve their ability to handle stress.

However, there is still a lack of research on ASMR and the scientific community is just beginning to recognize it.

So far, most studies suggest that ASMR can be an effective tool to reduce stress and improve focus in our current fast-paced lifestyles.

The Common Awakening of ASMR

Another thing to note about ASMR is that not everyone responds to it.

But for those who respond to it, refer to certain causes that make them feel the “sting.”

Here are some of the most common triggers of ASMR:

  • Whispers
  • Soft speech
  • Chewing sounds
  • Repetitive sounds
  • Tapping sounds

But again, these are just a few of them.

There are many ASMRs out there simply because everyone experiences them differently.

ASMR and Meditation

Sounds like ocean waves, chanting, and vibrational tones are often used for meditation.

These sounds have a profound healing effect on one’s mood and emotions.

Research has shown that certain types of sounds can really help a person with certain tasks.

In meditation, the activity of the prefrontal cortex increases.

This is a part of the frontal lobe that is used in various complex behaviors and contributes to personality development.

Sound healing is very popular in meditation.

It is a form of a kind of focused awareness meditation, which is also called sound baths.

Sound baths use tools such as Tibetan singing bowls, bells, etc.

A study in the Journal of Evidence-Based Integrative Medicine shows that one hour of sound meditation helped people reduce fatigue, anxiety, anger, tension and depression; at the same time, it helped them increase their spiritual sense of well-being.

As you can see, ASMR can also be used to improve your meditation.

If you’re one of the people that ASM appeals to, then you might want to give it a shot.

Meditation requires you to clear your mind and have a clear focus.

As mentioned, ASMR can help you relax which helps you focus on one thing.

Use ASMR to manifest your desires

With so many ASMR videos out there today, I’m pretty sure you’ll be able to find a video that will resonate with you the most.

How do you know if it’s the right video for you? Also, it sends a tingle into your mind that pushes you to relax.

When the mind is relaxed, you will find it easier to clear your thoughts and focus. And in meditation, these things are very important.

When you reach this level, you will be able to manifest what you want in your life. Take in the Law of Attraction.

To get what you want, you have to focus on it already in your life, which means you need the right level of focus to do it.

Consider ASMR as another form of sound meditation to aid you in the process of manifestation.

You can watch ASMR videos first before meditating.

Or you can listen to it while meditating. Choose whatever you feel comfortable in!

Always remember that in meditation and manifestation, if you choose to use sound as a tool, any sound can be the object of your focus.

When we bring our attention to a particular sound, we allow it to impact us at that very moment.

Level up your meditation practice and start manifesting better. Do this every day and see how it will impact your life.

Trying new meditation tools can help you strengthen your meditation practice.

In turn, it allows you to be more open to the universe and the things you want to manifest.

Go and try something new. Maybe ASMR is the answer to your manifesting journey.

Have you ever tried ASMR before?
