This is a bij (seed) mantra meditation. Bij mantras such as “Sat Nam” are the only sounds, which can totally rearrange the habit patterns of the subconscious mind. We all have habit patterns. We could not function without them, but sometimes the patterns we have created are not wanted. You have changed, so you want the patterns to change. By vibrating in this manner, you activate the energy of the mind that erases and establishes habits. After you chant this mantra, you will feel calm, relaxed and mellow.
Sit in easy pose. Place the palms flat together at the centre of the chest, thumbs touching the centre of the sternum. With the eyes closed, look up slightly, focusing at the brow point. Inhale deeply, concentrating on the breath.
Tune in with the Adi Mantra – Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo x 3
Remain in the same position and begin the meditation:
With the exhale, chant the mantra in the law of seven or law of the tides. Vibrate “Sat” in six waves, and let “Nam” be the seventh.
Sa – a – a – a – a – a – t Nam
On each wave, thread the sound through the chakras beginning at the base of the spine in the rectum. On “Nam,” let the energy and sound radiate from the seventh chakra at the top of the head through the aura. As the sound penetrates each chakra, or centre, gently pull the physical area it corresponds to. The first centre is the rectum, the second is the sex organs, the third is the navel point, the fourth is the heart, the fifth is the throat, the sixth is the brow point and the seventh is the top of the head. Continue for 11 minutes.
