Chanting (repeating the word rhythmically) ‘Om’ can help you attain physical, mental and spiritual fulfillment.
You don’t need any great preparation to chant Om. All you need is a quiet corner in your home. Sit in Padmasana pose with hands on your knees. Press your thumb and forefinger together and let your hands rest on your knees. Close your eyes and vocally chant ‘Om’ in an audible voice. Not only will it help to balance the chakras within your body but the environment also gets re-energized, making your dwelling a positive place.
What is Om?
The Universe consists of cosmic energies and Om is the sound or hum of it. It is a blend of two vowels with a word ‘A’ ‘U’ and ‘M’. The blend of these three letters emanates the sound ‘Om’. This is supposed to be the first sound of the Universe. It is a fact that where there is a creation, there is a creator. It is believed that the creator of our Universe uttered ‘Om’ as the first word. It is the essential, ancient and powerful mantra that is chanted to bring salvation. When you utter ‘Om’, you open your mouth and inhale (deep breathe) and as you pronounce the syllable ‘m’ you close your mouth, breathing in from the surroundings. This is the best breathing technique available today. Breath is also known as ‘Prana’, the elixir of life. Without breath there is no life.
The syllables in ‘Aum’, when uttered create vibrations within the body especially in the spinal column. This rejuvenates the spinal cord. Chanting of ‘Om’ also enhances the thyroid glands by activating the throat chakra. It also leaves a lasting impact on the brain by opening up the crown chakra thereby enabling smooth flow of energy throughout the body. When the brain gets activated it helps improve focus, develop concentration and drive away worries and anxiety. Your perception towards life turns positive and you look at life from an optimistic angle.
