AUM! “In Hinduism, Om is one of the most important spiritual symbols (pratima). It refers to Atman (soul, self within) and Brahman (ultimate reality, entirety of the universe, truth, divine, supreme spirit, cosmic principles.”..
AH- OH-MMM. Tune into the ancient sound of AUM (OM) and let yourself ride on this vibration that beckons you to places higher and deeper than you have ever been before, offering you a lift on your way to connecting with your higher self. AUM. The more you let go into the moment and into the AUM, the higher you fly. Forget that your eyelids are fluttering, relax with the nagging thoughts that would pull you back down to the ground. Keep coming back to the AUM. Chant with it, harmonize. Do not be afraid. This is meditation at its purest and simplest. All it requires is dedication and openness. What is achieved, in return, is a new level of awareness and an accumulated sense of balance and peace. You can AUM in the bathtub, AUM in the woods or AUM in a dome, as I have done! AUM along with your favorite artist. AUM with your friends. It is a vibration more than a word, so let yourself feeeel it!
Mantras and chants all have their place and purpose. There are mantras for peace; Om mani padme hum, mantras for bringing happiness; lokah samastah sukhino bhavantu, mantras for removing obstacles, etc. You can buy books to explore them or turn to Google. The power of sound has been used in many cultures for centuries. These are not witchy evocations but, rather, vibration and mindset. When you chant, you are sending a tone into the universe. But be ready. I used the chant for removal of obstacles, daily, for almost a year. The obstacles were removed, alright! I had no idea, at the time, that those people were the obstacles. Evidence came out later. Nonetheless, my life was thrown into quite a state of upheaval!
These mantras and chants, from ancient times, are based on vibrations, specific to creating an environment in relation to various circumstances. Energy work is all about vibration. Sound can raise or lower an existing vibration. Think of movie soundtracks: the music from Titanic makes your heart soar while the sound track for Psycho makes your blood run cold. It’s vibration. And at the end of the day, chanting can bring incredible calm. Try it on! AH-OH-MMM…
