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 Eternal Joy 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 are feeling sad, or suffering from a loss. Maybe you are grieving or home sick, or simply feeling low. If this is the case, try talking to someone close to you about how you feel & if the feeling persists, perhaps you need to seek professional support. By chanting the mantra, you are setting an intention to address your feelings of sadness. Having said that, there is nothing wrong with feeling sad. It is an emotion with just as might right as any other, but if it is continuous & for some time, setting an intention to address this need, is a welcome choice.
2. Because we are already immersed in a sense of eternal joy or would like to open ourselves to a more conscious sense of happiness. If this is the case perhaps you have chosen this mantra specifically to give thanks for this blessing, take your joyous feelings to another level or maybe you are planning ways to share the joy that you experience with others.
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 joy but sometimes, we can become so absorbed in one part of our life that feels joyous, that we overlook aspects of life that need our attention. For instance, perhaps your work gives you a sense of eternal joy but it dominates in such a way that your personal life suffers. Remember, eternal joy is in this life and the next. It is no one thing, it is connecting with the universal energy of happiness.
Should you choose to register for a SVARA Reiki Mantra Course, you will find that the chant for Gratitude is called Om Namah Shivaya. 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 ...
The Om is said to be the root of all sound & by chanting it, we tune into the Universal consciousness that is our home.
Om Namaha Shivaya is a love song to ourselves, caressing & soothing our inner nature, right at the heart of the third eye, tuning directly into our raw emotions
Joy is a sense of inner happiness, deeply embedded within us, enabling us to see the myriad of joyful things that we feel and experience through our senses both consciously & subconsciously.
From the moment we awake, the joy of abundance gives us a sense of wellness from the very start of the day, a notion of satiation and gratitude. My Nan would have called it 'counting our blessings' & she was right. To count and recognise one's blessings is joy indeed.
Om Namah Shivaya is an acknowledgement that our holistic universal consciousness, is One, that we are all part of the same light & that joy, is a never ending energy.
May you find a myriad of joyful moments laced through your day & recoginse the magnitude of the miracle that life is.
Namaste, Dear One.
