‘5’ Facts You May Not Know About ‘OM’

1. The sound of OM encompasses all words, all sounds in human language 
OM is a matrix of all sounds, when in its diversified form gives rise to all words used in language.Linguistically, all audible sounds are produced in the space within the mouth beginning at the root of the tongue and ending at the lips. The throat sound is A, and M is the lip sound; and the sound U represents the rolling forward of speech articulation which starts at the root of the tongue, continuing until it ends in the lips.To pronounce OM correctly, remember, the sound vibration is pronounced “oom” as in home.
2. AUM and OM
In Sanskrit, the sound “O” is a diphthong spelled “AU”. A diphthong is the blending of two vowel sounds where both are normally heard and make a gliding sound. As a result, the difference between OM and AUM is simply one of transliteration.
3. AUM represents the 3 Fold Division of Time
A – is the waking state
U – is the dream state
M – is the state of deep sleep
At the end of AUM is a pause, a silence. This represents the state known as Turiya, or Infinite Consciousness
4. The visual symbol represents the meaning of AUM
The symbol OM visually consists of three curves, one semicircle, and a dot.The large bottom curve symbolises the waking state,
A. The middle curve signifies the dream state,
U. The upper curve denotes the state of deep sleep,
M. The dot signifies the fourth state of consciousness, Turiya.
The semi circle at the top represents Maya and separates the dot from the other three curves. It signals to us that it is the illusion of Maya that is an obstacle to realisation of the Highest.
5. OM is associated with Ganesha
The physical form of Lord Ganesha is said to be that of OM.  The upper curve, of OM, is identified with the head or the face of Ganesh. The Lower curve his belly. The twisted curve, on the right side of OM is the trunk.

Transform Your Mind

Benefits of Meditation. Science has shown that your mind and body benefits from taking time out of your daily life to shut down and meditate. The benefits of meditation are endless, but mantras for anxiety or sinking into deep relaxation with yoga nidra will help you feel centered. Your body will thank you!

Definition of meditation….

I often get told by students that they are unable to meditate because they can’t keep their mind still. My response is that a cultivated sitting practice takes time but there are other ways to mediate if you feel seated is too difficult.

It’s best to start with walking meditation or yoga/tai chi, sport, painting, sewing etc. Whatever requires you utmost mindful attention, will assist in preparing you to practice seated meditation.

The import part of this process is not to rush your progress as there is no competition to see who can get there the fastest or who knows more about it. It is a journey not a race.

Enjoy your journey.

Racing Through Life

We spend our days racing through life as if we are running around in a cloud of illusion.

What does this mean?

We are working so hard, missing time with our family and friends, just to have the latest of everything. Material possessions have become so important that we have forgotten the true value of life. We are no longer grateful for the small things (having a meaningful chat with a stranger, going out of our way to make someones day, sunshine, a smile, kindness).

It appears most people are searching for happiness by looking outward rather than within. How can we understand that the excitement of purchasing a material possession is not long lived therefore we need to keep buying more to keep that feeling.

It seems like a lifetime ago but I was in that rat race of wanting more and thankfully I suffered financially which meant I would learn the greatest lesson of all and I’m so grateful.

We are chasing that rush, the adrenaline, the excitement a false reality. If we simply looked within for happiness we would certainly reduce the need to buy the latest technology, must have the latest clothes, buying fancy cars and that new home with all the latest furniture.

I live with my wonderful Husband in our humble home, drive a simple car and buy second hand clothes and I’m probably the happiest I have been in all my life.

And lets not forget the health and beauty industry make alot money from people needing health supplements, joining the latest gyms, cosmetic treatments, makeup, weightloss trends, visits to the beautician etc.

I could touch on the topic of self esteem but will probably write about that in another post…stay tuned.

There are many ways to learn how to stay within and not look outward for happiness but regression and hypnosis therapy are a very useful tools and I would highly recommend.

Take the time to connect and spend some time on your own.
