The most basic form of sound meditation is a mantra meditation. It is probably one of the most ancient forms of meditation.
The prefect mantra to start your sound meditation practice is OM mantra. OM represents a primal sound of the Universe. In the beginning there was sound, it reverberated as OM and from that sound everything came into existence.
Chanting OM sound creates a bridge between the Universe and ourselves. On the practical level OM connects body and spirit through the mind.
Through the chants of OM sound we can experience oneness with Universe and everything in it. Chanting OM mantra helps us to experience our nature as light or energy beings without intellectualising the subject.
The healing effects of OM mantra are great as it is naturally helps to balance and clear blocked charkas or energy centres in a body.
Just 5-10 minutes of chanting OM mantra per day will make a significant positive difference in your health and quality of life.
You can chant any time of the day. Traditionally it is done early morning after morning routines. Sit comfortably, close your eyes and start to making sound OM. If you can try to visualise at the same time sign for OM. Immediately you will start feel a vibration in your body muscles, bones and organs. This is the only way we can massage our organs and bones internally.
