Sound Intentions

Sound ~ Healing ~ Transformation

Om Ah Hum

My personal experience of working recently with this mantra:

The All-encompassing expression (OM)
of the flowering love (AH)
This Divine seed at the heart of me (HUM)

I sound this, standing, in one breath with the sound gradually changing (but don’t obsess about this – it should be comfortable so sound in three breaths if you wish). Starting with hands raised above the head (OM), palms together, bringing the hands down to the throat and heart (hands in western prayer position to coincide with the AH sound), then as the hands move down towards the navel from the heart, flattening out so only the fingertips touch (HUM).

Feel the intensity of this vibration, sounding the INTENT of love, joy, health, vitality, of Divine Will, to be expressed through our DNA, the matrix which shapes our reality.

    I used Neil’s Transcendence CD with someone recently and they were so relaxed after the Karuna Reiki treatment that they could not move and fell asleep for a while.When they woke they were completely refreshed.The music seemed to reach deep levels in the body and resonate with the cells.It complemented the treatment wonderfully.Thank you Neil!

  2. Let me add something about mantras…

    A mantra is a religious or mystical syllable or poem, typically from the Sanskrit language. Their use varies according to the school and philosophy associated with the mantra. They are primarily used as spiritual conduits, words or vibrations that instill one-pointed concentration in the devotee. Other purposes have included religious ceremonies to accumulate wealth, avoid danger, or eliminate enemies. Mantras originated in the Vedic religion of India, later becoming an essential part of the Hindu tradition and a customary practice within Buddhism, Sikhism and Jainism. The use of mantras is now widespread throughout various spiritual movements which are based on, or off-shoots of, the practices in the earlier Eastern religions.

    Mantras are interpreted to be effective as sound (vibration), to the effect that great emphasis is put on correct pronunciation (resulting in an early development of a science of phonetics in India). They are intended to deliver the mind from illusion and material inclinations. Chanting is the process of repeating a mantra.

    Khanna (2003: p.21) links mantras and yantras to thoughtforms:

    Mantras, the Sanskrit syllables inscribed on yantras, are essentially ‘thought forms’ representing divinities or cosmic powers, which exert their influence by means of sound-vibrations.

    Hi Conor,
    good luck with the meditation – the thing is to keep at it, make the effort every day.

    Re the law of attraction and so on – really, I would say that one should work first on clearing subconscious programmes and belief codes which hold us back. The subconscious is 90% of our brain, and you may think (with your conscious 10%) that you want something, but the hidden iceberg of the subconscious can be very powerfully kicking in the opposite direction. Meditation and increasing self-awareness is key to discovering these blocks. I would also recommend EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique – google it) and kinesiology for helping uncover the blocks. I would highly recommend the work of Michele Fitzgerald in finding and clearing these blocks and changing your programmes.
