Om Namaha Shivaya
One of the most powerful of all the chants
The repetition of a vocal sound modified the breath, the body and the mind. Each tone vibrates the bones of the chanter. The elongation of the vowel sound is remarkably healing to the brain and the body. Brainwaves begin to balance after three or four minutes and the muscle and skin temperature increases. Chanting is a simple and essential way to reduce stress and anxiety.
Om Namaha Shivaya is one of the most powerful of all chants. All of creation is represented when chanting the sound Om as slow as possible. Om is the seed sound of the universe.
Each syllable creates a vibration in the mind and body that is relaxing and empowering. Put your hands on your cheeks as you chant and feel the power of the vibrations coming through your body. Each vowel will vibrate a different place in your body. Each note in the chant will move to a different epicenter of energy located within the body. Mantras and chants create quantum events in consciousness and transform themselves into neuro-peptides in the brain and the body.
One of the greatest secrets of sound and music is the power that is not heard, but felt by the bones, muscles and fluids in the body. This chant makes a vibrant and unique vibration within the skull and body. Experiment and perhaps place one hand on your cheek and the other hand on your chest as you chant.
