Scientists have proven that chanting for 20 minutes stimulates the Vegas Nerve, which is resposible for the body's sense of well being. Off course, our ancient ancestors have been telling us this for 4000 years ...
Welcome, you have chosen Compassion as an area upon which you would like to meditate. There are usually 3 reasons why we are drawn to a certain mantra:-
1. Because we feel we are lacking or have struggles with this area of our life. For instance, perhaps you feel a lack of understanding about what you are going through, that people fail to see what you are suffering. Maybe you are too frightened to share your truth and it is causing a block in your energies & making you sad. If this is the case, try being more compassionate & understanding of yourself. Try it for a whole day, treating yourself the way you would like to be treated & be mindful of how this feels. The more compassionate you are to Self and with others, the more likely it is that you will feel compassionate.
2. Because we are sublimely happy with this part of our life. If this is the case & you are filled with two way compassion, perhaps you have chosen this mantra specifically to give thanks for this blessing
3. And lastly, because we have too much of this in our life & it is causing issues. It is hard to imagine that one could have too much compassion but, perhaps you are being compassionate with a loved one when actually, they just want space & would prefer you not to be involved. If this upsets you, then perhaps you might want to chant an intention to be respectful of boundaries, both your own and that of others.
Should you choose to register for a SVARA Reiki Mantra Course, you will find that the chant for Compassion is called Om Tare Tuttare. There is a free sample of the chant at the top of this page & a full 20 minute meditation version is available at my BANDCAMP shop. Read on to find out the meaning of the mantra ...
Om Tare Tuttare is a beautiful, ancient Sanskrit mantra from Tibet, chanted to honour the Green Goddess of Compassion & Kindness. The meaning attributed to Tare Tuttare is that of compassion & action; she is a protector who comes to our aid to relieve us of physical, emotional & spiritual suffering. Chanting this mantra helps us to address our jealousies & fears in a loving way.
O Universal Mother of all Mothers
Act upon us with compassion
To relieve all suffering
Om Tare Tuttare sets us free of our innermost fears & opening an intention for the freedom to step into our power in full trust of our desires. Although in the past, our primal flight or flight responses to fear may have served us well, in today's world, deep rooted fears can block us, stop us being our best Self or even worse, lead us to self sabotage. For instance, you might find that you are just about to succeed at something & all you need to do is take that last step, but something stops you, a fear of failing, a fear of succeeding, of what others may think. Recognising these fears enables us to replace fear with compassion, allowing the river of our successes to flow freely. Namaste, Dear One.
