Bija mantra sound therapy
In Vedic healing traditions, the Bija mantras are mono-syllable seed sounds that, when said aloud, activate the energy of the chakras and consequently purify and balance the mind and body allowing for a more harmonious way to be. Every part of our body functions at a specific rhythm and pulse and when you speak the bija mantras, this resonates with the energy of the associated chakra, helping you rejuvenate and tune in to your own instinctive awareness of your body and its healing needs.
BIJA MANTRAS - CHAKRA MEDITATION
Above the physical confines of the body
Sound: Silent OM
Invisible halo, thousand petalled lotus flower, white
Seat of seeing, intuition, perception
Emotions, compassion, love
Seat of the ego, sense of self, will, power, assertiveness
Sexual energy centre, desire
Sit comfortably for a seated meditation. Close the eyes. Rest the backs of the hands on the lap or legs. Allow yourself to be comfortable and let your mind become calm using whichever technique works best for you.
Repeat the bija mantra seed sounds repeatedly for a few minutes whilst focusing on each chakra starting from Muladhara and working up through the chakras to Sasahara. End by sounding out all the names of the bija seed sounds from lam to silent OM, three times.
Sit in silent meditation to complete the practice.
Alternatively repeat each seed sound three times and then run through all the bija mantras three times in succession.
