Scientists have proven that chanting for 10 -20 minutes stimulates the Vagus Nerve, which is responsible for the body's sense of well being. Off course, our ancient ancestors have been telling us this for 4000 years ...

Welcome friend, your inner Self has chosen VICTORY as an area upon which you may wish to meditate. There are usually three 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. The most common being that perhaps you feel you are not winning. That you are unable to succeed & be victorious over obstacles. If this is the case, I would advise you to take a mindful look at your goals and set yourself smaller ones that are achievable, as a starting point to grow from. But it could be, that although you feel this way, it is not a truth. Perhaps you are winning in ways you have not acknowledged.
2. Because we are sublimely happy with this part of our life & would like to give thanks for our victory. Victory suggests that we have beaten or won over overs. We can not avoid this in our culture, such as when we go for a job interview, we are pitched against each other.
3. And lastly, because we have too much of this in our life & it is causing issues. Perhaps we so obsessed with winning, that winning has become so important to us that we forget the feelings of others, or the aspects of our life hat need attention. Like with all things, it is about balance.
The chant for Victory is Om Sri Rama Jaya. There is a Soundbite Gift of the chant at the top of this page for you to listen to. If you feel that Om Sri Rama Jaya resonates with you, feel free to pop over to my BANDCAMP shop, where you'll find the full length Meditation Version lasting @15 minutes - perfect for embodying a sense of well being. Read on to find out the full meaning of the mantra Om Sri Rama Jaya.
This Sanskrit Mantra translates as follows: -
The Om is said to be the root of all sound & by chanting it, we tune into a Universal consciousness.
Jaya means 'victory' & Rama is to rejoice. Sri is a title we give to a sacred deity or being.
We can take this mantra to set an intention thus: 'As part of full consciousness, I rejoice in the victory of past, now & present, for myself & others.'
We have personal victories that we strive for every day. Just as the butterfly breaks from her cocoon, so we, too celebrate our own personal achievements by chanting this mantra, recognising how how far we have come, however small that may appear to others, You are breathing, your blood is pumping around your body! That in itself is a victory, leave alone the finely tuned orchestra of your body, running smoothly (most of the time) resilient, able to overcome all manner of obstacles. We're truly amazing, aren't we? Namaste, Dear One.
