I usually listen to video game soundtracks, but that’s just me lol. I’m a fan of Lo-fi when doing shadow work as well
I've been listening to Norwichen folks music, it very similar to old celtic music with I find deeply peaceful
I just search on youtube for shadow work music or meditation music. I do also look for those that have a number of 700+ hertz. I watched someone suggesting that for removing or elevating ( look into it though because I cannot exactly recall and quote). Whatever sits well with me after a few secs-mins of listening I will play as my background music. Singing bowls are also nice.
I think it also comes down to what brings you peace/focus. So that you aren't focused entirely on singing along or being distracted during your journaling.
My first rule is "instrumental only" -- I find that as much as I enjoy listening to various artists sing, when I'm trying to concentrate on something other human voices keep breaking through. I have a bookmarks folder titled "Music" with several sub-folders, some of which are "working music," "relaxation music," and (newest) "magickal music" -- along with a ton of individual listings that I haven't sorted through yet <sigh> -- because I've also found that different pieces, even in the same genre, work better for one or another mood, and I go by the "feel" or each individual piece or album regardless of the artist. (I also have tinnitus in both ears, so binaural beats and certain higher frequencies just don't do anything for me.) YMMV, but I'd say just build a set of playlists and have fun experimenting as you find what works best for different purposes!
