Applied Intelligence – Kundalini Yoga 5 Feb 6.15-7.30pm Prana Lounge

The Mind and Applied Intelligence

In January took at look at ourselves, our relationship with the self and how through the use of our own voice and sound we could be our truest, highest self. During the next few weeks I want to take us on a discovery of our minds. I want us to understand the mind, its function, its challenges and discover how to make it our best friend. In order to do this we need to clarify the relationship between ourselves and our mind.

What is intelligence?

We begin with a look at Intelligence. Intelligence is the ability to manifest the thoughts that we identify with and create clear intentions from. Intelligence is not the thoughts themselves, nor just the intellect, nor knowing something. It is the capacity to act on what we know and to evaluate quickly the result of our choices.

What is Applied intelligence?

Is the capacity of the mind to determine the thoughts we dwell on, the intentions we manifest and the actions we take. With applied intelligence you have subjective control to select and direct your thought projections.

wahaHow does it work?

Remember we talked about mantra, man being mind, tra being projection. When you can control your thought projections, you are said to have applied intelligence. This is not easy, but with patience and discipline it can be learnt.  The normal way of thinking is we attach to an idea, feeling, or belief that is just a stream of messages running through our mind as a result of internal and external stimulation. When we do not consciously understand this we let those random thoughts narrow our perception of what is, which slows our ability to learn and adapt to new environments. The key to appropriate development of intelligence is the power of non-attachment.  It is the capacity to select a strategy, from competing factions, that can get you to the goal. It is the higher form of the negative mind In this context, it is your ability to negate false learning and move quickly to a new insight and direction.  This week we will analyse the kinds of thoughts we are constantly having from the elevation and development of our neutral mind and focus on the projection we want have.

The Science of Sound – Kundalini yoga heal and inspire – 29 January 6.15-7.30pm Prana Lounge

brainThe Science of Sound

I spent a very special weekend hearing different sounds at the Galle Literary Festival. The words and vibrations of inspirational speakers, who used their voices to inspire, excite and uplift. This week we continue with our investigation into the yogic science of sound to make our words powerful, uplifting and inspirational.

The Science-We are the most amazing instrument. We discussed the power of sound to raise our vibration last week, as we played the instrument of our body and its 72,000 surs, string or meridian points. Why is mantra a quantum technology? It is quantum because sound manipulates the smallest particles in our bodies to effectively change the combinations and patterns within us. These patterns then form the informational DNA of your spirit. A sacred rope of knots to lift you to the divine.

These primal sounds we use in mantra are called Phonemes. The Shabd (sound) guru (teacher) uses these primal units of speech plus universal grammar under laying all language to change the psychoactive neurology of the brain. Repeating the pattern embedded in the Shabd guru ingrains that pattern of primal sound into the brain, this is the patterns of sound made at the beginning of time, the big bang so to speak. Enlightened Masters having experienced the sound current, have extracted these sounds from the Anahat (the unstruck or unmanifested sound current) and plucked these particular series of notes from behind the silence to give us a technology to heal the maladies of our time. You may ask why these particular notes and not all sounds. Because not all combinations of sounds create a pattern of wholeness and healing.

mantra

Why does it work?

Shabd means sound, but when you break the word down you get Sha, meaning the expression of ego and bd, to cut. Ego is formed by the minds constant automatic processing that attaches us to identify with objects, people, feelings, thoughts, etc. The Ego is not bad, just very limited.   When all your actions, thoughts, etc are attached to ego your reality becomes very narrow, and you live in the duality of pain and pleasure. When you transcend, the ego see it but are not taken by it, then you intuitively connect to the larger Self the vastness of what is and understand the play of life from this perspective.

Each primal sound is a unit that is pronounced by a particular part of the mouth. When we form a word to speak it, the tongue moves and touches the palate, the top of the mouth, and the teeth in a well-defined area. The sound of the word directs the pressure of the air and vibrates the vocal chords to stimulate specific areas in the skull. The primal sounds use these areas of reflex, attached to meridians, to direct brain patterns. That is why it is easier to meditate to Mantra, because it cuts through the ego of negative and positive thoughts to the truth of you and your neutral mind.  Having practiced chanting for around 16 years I can attest to the power of mantra. Try it and lets your normal day words come from a clear mind and inspire all those who hear you.  Sat nam Fi x sanasumainsrilanka.wordpress.com read our weekly blogs, raymond.fiona@gmail.com   0778011984 www.sanasuma.co.uk http://www.3ho.org

2018 The Year of Sound: Kundalini yoga Mon 22 Jan 6.15-7.30pm@ Prana Lounge

sound 12018 the Year of Sound

Having just been to the movies to watch Pitch Perfect I was inspired by how amazing music, singing and sound can lift you up and start really transforming you. In fact Mick Rock legendary 70’s rock and roll photographer and yogi said, “ You paid whatever you could afford for your mantra…I ‘ve used this mantra ever since. Very easy to use very powerful.” In later life he discovered Kundalini yoga. When asked why Kundalini? He said, “It totally works. It is not bullshit crap. It’s not theoretical. You don’t have to start as a believer or be a follower of Yogi Bhajan to get the benefits. All I really know is the Kundalini kriyas, postures, meditation, chanting and breathing techniques enable me to easily access an altered state in a non chemical way. I just go into the Kundalini space. My brain, my being transforms.”

Practical Guide: So how does Sound & Mantra work

sound

Thoughts and sounds are energetic waves we cannot see but exist. If you project a specific form of energy through the mind, it can have a predictable effect on the physiology of the body and psyche of the brain. This we call mantra. Mantra essentially is a sound wave that you pulse across the brain to create a specific effect within you. It is a bit like a mathematical formula. Each mantra creates a measurable end. It alters the chemistry and pattern of the neurons with both physical and esoteric effects. This has been measured in Harvard and UCLA when they researched how Kritan Kriya (SA,TA,NA,MA) affected DNA and regrowth of telomeres in patients with Alzheimer’s.

Every element of the universe is in a constant state of vibration manifested to us as light, sound and energy. The human sense perceives only a fraction of the infinite range of vibration, so it is difficult to comprehen that the Word mentioned in the bible is actually the totality of vibration which underlies and sustains all creation. A person can tune his or her own consciousness into the awareness of that totality with the use of a mantra. By vibrating in rhythm with the breath to a particular sound that is proportional to the creative sound, or sound current, one can expand one’s sensitivity to the entire spectrum of vibration. It is similar to striking a note on a stringed instrument. In other words, as you vibrate, the universe vibrates with you.” ~Yogi Bhajan

sound 2

Chanting a mantra either silently or out loud is a method of directing the mind. All of our emotions (sorrow, joy, bitterness, elation) are vibratory frequencies. You can call them beliefs, attitudes, whatever you want, but fundamentally they are vibratory patterns that determine the program played by our mind. So much of what we interact with as “reality” is the program our mind is playing. Our vibratory pattern determines how we feel.

We chant constantly, even if we aren’t aware of it. Chanting can look like “I’m failure, I’m failure, I always fail so why bother trying”. If every other word out of our mouth is “I don’t have enough money for (fill in the blank)” then that, too, is the vibratory pattern we are sending across our minds. When we consciously chant a mantra we are invoking its specific vibratory resonance and placing it into our mind’s field. So if the mantra is for prosperity, peace, happiness, intuition or any multitude of other marvelous things that is the vibratory pattern we are establishing. It doesn’t actually matter if we know the meaning of the mantra; it will still have an effect. The sounds themselves are encoded with meaning and vibratory range. It’s not all about belief. Nor is it placebo. It’s a matter of the universe itself using certain frequencies to manifest things. Mantras were developed by those who could hear and understand the language of the universe. They then blossomed forth these combination of sounds to harness specific vibratory patterns and allow us to mirror them back to the universe in its own language of sound, light and energy.

When chanting it is important to listen to the sound of your own voice, no matter what the pitch or tone. It is not about harmonising. But try to make sure your voice does not dominate either. As the thoughts or emotions arise in meditation, chant strongly and consciously to match the frequency of the thought or emotion. The mantra can then dissolve or replace this pattern with a positive one.

Mantra is also great for people who find meditation difficult. Chanting mantra is a way of staying focused and positively cutting through negative mind loops and patterns. Great to use with Autistic children. Find a mantra that you feel the effect of and use it this year to be the truest, highest version of you.

Laws of Attractiveness – Kundalini Yoga in Sri Lanka

attraction.png

Now we have started feeling deep acceptance of our polarities and paradoxes let’s get into the nitty, gritty of intimate relationships. Yogi Bhajan says this type of relationship is the highest kind of yoga because it pits you against conflict, paradox, polarity, challenge and asks you to call upon your conscious power over your mind to stay graceful, tolerant, compassionate and loving. Sound familiar?

But let’s look at what we are attracted to and how we become truly attractive?

We all have our theories about attraction – from fashion to passion, finding our soul mate to the need to fill our emotional holes. Are we attracted to people similar to ourselves or different? Is it their laugh or eye colour? Does Prince charming really exist?

The most powerful factor of attraction is none of the above. What we all find truly attractive is security. If a person exhibits a quality of self-love they are at their most attractive. It is typically when a person after a break up is feeling really good about themselves and is not looking for a relationship, that is when they attract someone. This sense of completeness and autonomy in yoga is call Saibhung.   We always will feel the need for someone to complete us this is the polarity of separation that the soul feels as it has been separated from the infinite. We need to use our applied intelligence to go beyond this polarity and feel whole, self fulfilled, self contained to serve in our intimate relationships instead of looking for our needs to be fulfilled by someone else.

Attraction is further complicated by the factors built into our instinctual programming, for example, take smell and symmetry. Smell is a powerful attractive factor. We immediately subconsciously recognise the smell of a potential mate that has genes which would be compatible to our having disease free, strong children.

Symmetry is another common attraction. We seek beauty and beauty is universally recognized as symmetry this factor also exists in the natural world.

harmony

The saying goes opposites attract. But we also like to share similarities in our partners. However we need enough of a difference to keep our relationship interesting. Differences create challenge, but if you do not try and fix your partner to make them like you, then you can face these polarities, stay conscious and remain flexible in your approach which lends to a healthy relationship.

So attraction is a complex blend of glandular, cerebral, social, genetic, karmic and spiritual. The only way to enjoy this and act with clarity is with applied intelligence where we use our consciousness and intuition to build and fulfil authentic relationships that are pleasing to our soul and its values.

The most important thing is not to be going into an intimate relationship with an itinerary of needs that have to be fulfilled by the other person. When people feel this insecurity it is very unattractive.

The best way to approach any relationship is when you are pre-fulfilled. You have everything you need. Begin with Oneness. This feeling of Saibhang can be developed through your daily practice of Kundalini yoga and meditation.

Next week let’s talk about how to sustain a loving, intimate relationship now you understand attraction. Sat nam Fi x sanasumainsrilanka.wordpress.com read our weekly blogs and brain candy updates raymond.fiona@gmail.com 0778011984

Take your life off Autopilot- Kundalini Yoga 6.15pm Tuesday 26 Sept @ The Om Space

transitionWe have all experienced reading a few lines or in fact pages in a state of automatic pilot and not being able to recall any of it. This is our body’s clever way of saving fuel. Our conscious brain is a gas guzzling high powered machine when we concentrate, for example like learning a new language. To be more efficient our subconscious brain takes over, it looks at what we are experiencing now and sees if it looks familiar with a previous experience. If it does, it assumes that the experience is the same as yesterday and behaves in the same way. It creates a blue print of your daily life and feeds you this reality again and again. No wonder we feel bored, no wonder small kids say, “I know that Aunty”.

It is estimated that we spend 80% of our life on autopilot or subconscious pilot! This means that majority of life is habituated doing what we regularly do and not seeing the unique context of that moment as a separate time (fourth dimension) in three dimensional space.

Our life is lived in a dull blur. We resist the now and the new.

We need to override this autopilot. Each time you notice you are on autopilot, or the next time you take a drink of water, tea, etc. Take a slow deep breath in through your nose, hold the breath, exhale through the nose, smile and ask yourself, “what is needed now?” Because it is different to what was needed yesterday. Just by doing this you will have taken yourself off autopilot and switched on your high powered intuitive, brain. Enjoy, life is here to be experienced not thought about!

Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training Level 1 Café Ceylon, Sri Lanka

About the Venue? 

Café Ceylon and Jasmin cottage are our beautiful beach cottage and wild sea food restaurant by Kabalana Beach. Jasmin cottage is homely, cosy and colourful. Beds are covered with Indian kanta work, brightly coloured bedspreads and lots of art adorn the walls. Café Ceylon has a huge, tropical garden full of ancient coconut palms, organic papaya, passion, bananas and flowers. We slept between the 2 cottages, had our classes looking out on to the luscious garden and ate special veggie food cooked by my master chef husband German Dimaano. After an intense day of classes, we went off to Kabalana beach and got thrown about in the dramatic waves. Some of us went body boarding but it was an intense experience for all as we faced our fears and did it anyway. The star lit night was filled with the sweet sound of singing and playing of spiritual mantras, before an early night for a 5am start.

About the Retreat? 

We began the final week of Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training Level 1 with our joyful teacher Ronit Vardi who flew to us from Israel just for this course. It was a 7 day intensive. With 5am starts for morning Sadhana, then full 13-14 hour days, filled with teachings that included, the science of Chakras, humanology, the relationship and differences between male and females, Yogic diet, ethics, spiritual path and development, western anatomy, etc. All the student teachers got to a chance to teach in front of their peers, handling the Kriya’s, presentations and teaching asana, pranayama and meditation. The final day ended with a beautiful ceremony where we shared our thoughts for the future and how transformational the course had been for everyone including the teachers.

About the Food? 

German is a brilliant chef, he was artistically creative with our food as well as it being delicious. We started the day with homemade muesli, fresh seasonal fruits and buffalo yoghurt or curd.   Lunch was roast veggie quinoa salad with hummus, roast pumpkin risotto with shavings of parmesan, etc. Dinner was a light, healthy veggie soup and coconut roti.

The Science of Chakra’s – Kundalini Yoga 29 May 6.15pm@ Prana Lounge

Kundlaini_Meditaiton

When the yogis discovered the sound, workings, co relationship of the Chakra system, they developed it into a whole science. This total science gave birth to Kundalini yoga. What for me was the OMG moment when rediscovering the Chakra system was that by knowing the workings of each chakra you can better understand where and why you are off balance.

We discussed last week how the human body was like a musical instrument constructed of strings or surs, which vibrate with the flow of pranic energy. Out of these 72,000 strings there are 3 major surs that control the rest. Pranic energy flows like a waterfall from the crown downwards collecting in seven energy pools at the chakras.

The upper chakras vibrate with each thought of the mind. They carry this vibration down to the lower chakras which create the shape of the physical, emotional and mental bodies.

First Chakra, Muladara, is located at the base of the spine, perineum and rectum. It deals with security, grounding and the instinct to survive. It also works on eliminating anything you no longer need, food waste, unneeded emotions, thoughts, etc. From complex to basic or common elements. It is linked to your sense of smell because if you hold on to everything you end up reeking or eliminating well allows you to have a sweet smell. Habit is a big part of this chakra you develop conscious habits which finally can be done unconsciously. Trust is the key to balancing this chakra, trust in the earth, yourself and the unseen. This is a key problem in the modern world. When in doubt in your first chakra, secure yourself and hold to the old patterns.

Second Chakra, Svadhisthana is located in the sacrum, kidneys, ovaries and testis. It deals with creativity, reproduction and relationships. It also embodies duality and polarity as 1 becomes 2. It is the first taste of merger. The element water is associated with it and like water, feelings flow or get damned up. Research shows that our memories are categorised as much by feeling as anything else. When this chakra is unbalanced you may develop shallow relationships, shame of the body and sexuality, inadequacy or wild child behaviour. We use Sat Kriya, and frog pose not to stimulate and increase the energy of this chakra but to balance it. When balanced you can have fulfilling intimate relationships, a passion for life, generosity and willingness to share. The sense is touch and the colour orange. When in doubt in your second chakra find your feelings and follow your passion.

Third Chakra, Manipura is located at the navel, solar plexus, and upper digestive system. This is the area of our strength, will power, sense of control and coordination. It is ruled by the element fire and coordinates sight and vision. Fire can also make you an angry fiery person if not directed correctly into determination. It is at the navel that energy is gathered and distributed, this is why the first thing during the wake-up routine is stretch pose with breath of fire. When in doubt in your third chakra, act. This is the realm of the spiritual warrior, you know where you want to get to and can gather the energy needed to get there, fearlessly. When you feel insufficiency energy you may compensate with reaching for energy in from of carbohydrate or sweet foods, drugs and stimulants.

Fourth Chakra, Anahata is located at the sternum, thymus gland and heart. This is your centre of compassion, empathy, joy, grief, bitterness, attachment, loneliness, passive aggressive. It gives us the sense of touch, that is why we say when someone speaks from the heart, it touches us. Air is the element associated with this Chakra. Expression of the air element when unbalanced, will manifest as giving to those who do not want or need it. The heart is stimulated by Prana, any blocks of the diaphragm deeply effect the heart chakra. So, it is recommended to do Pranayama daily to increase the flow at this heart centre.

IMG_1661

Guava House Level 2 Retreat

Fifth Chakra, Vishuddha is located at the throat, thyroid and parathyroid glands. The centre of communication and sound. If this chakra is unbalanced you can feel frustrated, not be able to express yourself, feelings of shyness, withdrawal into the mind.   Balanced you are an inspirational communicator and you will be listened to as an authority. You can create through your words and hear the subtle of what has not been said.

Sixth Chakra, Anja is located in the third eye area, pituitary gland, above the root of the nose. I perceive and I see. It is all about your intuitive mind, when out of balance you suffer from nightmares, eye problems, confusion discerning what is real, being unfocussed and psychic disturbances. When balanced, you are clear, you can connect to and rely on your intuition and are comfortable with what is, reality.

Seven Chakra, Sahasrara is located at the crown of the head and pineal gland. I know, I accept. The element related to this chakra is thought and the divine. When this chakra is unbalanced you can be close minded, doubtful, feel despairing, suffer from symptoms without cause and be self-conscious.  Balanced you can feel bliss, experience oneness (samadhi), joy, peace and wholeness as all the other chakras become integrated and connected to the seventh.

Eight Chakra, the Aura is located as the radiance of the electromagnetic field around you. The aura combines the effects of all the other chakra’s, giving you protection and projection. If the aura is balanced it appears as an oval light, symmetrical. When you are ill, it has various dimples and pockets where your radiance is dimmed. The Aura connects your inner and outer realities. It connects you to the entire Universe. When your Aura is weak you catch illness and absorb negativity energy. When strong it aligns all your chakras and your presence alone seems to work to fulfil your desire and needs.

Understand yourself through the chakra system, work out what is weak on a daily basis and take action to balance this area in your life and uplift yourself.

Shabd Guru – A Quantum Technology 22 May 6.15pm Kundalini Yoga @Prana Lounge

star-clusters-74052_960_720-300x293

We are the most amazing instrument. We discussed the power of sound to raise our vibration last week, as we played the instrument of our body and its 72,000 surs, string or meridian points. This week we go into the scicence of this quantum technology.

This may sound, forgive my pun, complicated but sound is the perfect neuro-stimulator that activates and connects different areas of our brain and it does its job so subtly that you only need to follow the instructions and feel the effect.   In fact, my small black cat understands this ancient technology instantly. He is normally very afraid of people and situations, but when it comes to Wednesday Sadhana, our early morning gathering of Kundalini yoga and chanting the Shabd Guru he is in complete alignment, he normally walks in midway and then just lies down to immerse himself in the sound current, whether it is the gong, or the sound of us chanting. He then even allows students to stroke him. This is the power of this technology that it can manipulate our very cells to bring us into the highest vibrational frequency that we can all share and relate to, even the puddy cat.

Why is it a quantum technology. It is quantum because it manipulates the smallest particles of sound and energy into effective combinations and patterns. These patterns then form the informational DNA of your spirit. A sacred rope of knots to lift you to the divine.

These primal sounds are called Phonemes and the Shabd guru uses these primal units of speech plus universal grammar under lying all language to change the psychoactive neurology of the brain. Repeating the pattern embedded in the Shabd guru ingrains that pattern of primal sound into the brain, this is the patterns of sound made at the beginning of time, the big bang so to speak. Enlightened Masters having experienced the sound current, have extracted these sounds from the Anahat (the unstruck or unmanifested sound current) and plucked these particular series of notes from behind the silence to give us a technology to heal the maladies of our time. You may ask why these particular notes and not all sounds. Because not all combinations of sounds create a pattern of wholeness and healing. The Shabds heritage is from the Sikh Guru’s but you do not have to be any religious denomination to access this technology, it is for everyone.

Why does it work.

Shabd means sound, but when you break the word down you get Sha, meaning the expression of ego and bd, to cut. Ego is formed by the minds constant automatic processing that attaches us to identify with objects, people, feelings, thoughts, etc. The Ego is not bad, just very limited.   When all your actions, thoughts, etc are attached to ego your reality becomes very narrow, and you live in the duality of pain and pleasure. When you transcend, the ego see it but are not taken by it, then you intuitively connect to the larger Self the vastness of what is and understand the play of life from this perspective.

Each primal sound is a unit that is pronounced by a particular part of the mouth. When we form a word to speak it, the tongue moves and touches the palate, the top of the mouth, and the teeth in a well-defined area. The sound of the word directs the pressure of the air and vibrates the vocal chords to stimulate specific areas in the skull. The primal sounds use these areas of reflex, attached to meridians, to direct brain patterns.

This is difficult topic to blog about because it is so experiential. The test is in the doing. Feel free to put on a Shabd Japji in the morning or Jap Sahib and listen, chant if you like but allow the process to start transforming how you see life. That is why it is easier to meditate to Mantra, because it cuts through the ego of negative and positive thoughts to the truth of you and your neutral mind.

Can your Vibration change your Life? – Kundalini yoga 15 May 6.15pm @ Prana Lounge, Col 7

Last week we used the longitude and latitude of MAN (MIND) TRA (PROJECTION) to first notice then change what we were broadcasting through our words and thoughts both conscious and unconscious. This week we look in more detail about vibration.

Do you feel you are in the flow of life today? Or do you feel like life is blocking you, things are not moving, something just does not feel right? Well there could be a physical and energetic resolution to this problem.

Quantum science tells us that the Universe is a vibration of energy. We are either vibrating in harmony or disharmony with this energy. We vibrate frequently through our thoughts, words, actions, emotions, and feelings. What we vibrate out through our mind and antennas (the hairs on our body) goes out in waves into the Universe and much like a boom-a-rang we receive it back.

When life seems to be continually placing blocks along your path and nothing seems to be moving, it may be showing you that you are not vibrating in harmony with the Universe. To vibrate with the Universe is to vibrate the higher frequencies of love, compassion, and kindness. (See my earlier blog on vibrational frequencies.)

So how do we change our frequency? One of the best ways to be in the flow of the Universe is through yoga, meditation, gong and chanting mantra. The sacred sounds that attune your mind to the pure vibration of the Universe or sound current.

Shift the frequency of your thoughts to be more aligned with the high frequency of the Universe. When you bring in the higher frequency energy into you and your life watch the Universe respond by clearing your path.   Trouble comes only when you ask for it.  Try out the simple Mantra Sat nam, (chanting a long Sat and short nam) and see how you feel after a few minutes of vibrating at a higher frequency.

Mantra – Control your mind’s Broadcasts! Kundalini yoga 8 May 6.15pm Prana Lounge, Col 7

e456e9853d2fe92816e7f61cce87c479

For Kundalini yogis, the impact of sound and vibration is the teacher or Guru. We are united with the Infinite through the vibration of the sound current or Naad. Kundalini yoga prepares your body and mind and enhances your hearing capacity so that you can recognise and hear the sound current.

I am asked many times when I play the Gong, how did I learn to play? It is a mixture of developing my intuition over the last 15 years, to play intuitively. But I feel that that would not have been enough. The real key was when I learnt and chanted mantra, particularly the Long Ek Ong Kars for 4 years. This enhanced my hearing capacity to allow me to hear the sound current.

Yogi Bhanjan reminds us, that our minds are not under our control and mantra is something that can bring the mind under our control.

Let’s look at the word Mantra. Man, mind and Tra projection. Whatever sets the projection of the mind is called Tra. Tra brings harmony, Tral means harmonious notes and Tra is the projected wave length of harmony.

If I say fire the arrow at a precise longitude and latitude, I am giving you the Tra or projection for that arrow. This is the same with the mind the Tra sets the projection of where the mind wants to get to.

Mantra is a cyclable, a key, a code, a sound which fixes the projection of the mind. It projects through the mind that secret code.

When we understand that on a quantum level everything in the Universe is in a constant state of vibration manifested in either, light, sound and energy, we understand how powerful chanting mantra can be for us. This is not a religious thing or even a mystical thing, it is a practical technology that works.

Start changing what your mind is broadcasting, by chanting instead of thinking in mind loops. Start listening to your mind, emotions and also what you say. Does your projection really reflect you? Or is it , the negative self, the victim self, the judgemental self, the worrier self? And is this what you want to be broadcasting and resonating? If it is not, be the change you want to see.

The purpose of chanting is to have a direct connection with the soul or infinite self that resides beyond your mind. You chant and your mind hears the sound of infinity through your voice, there is no higher meditation you can do. Start chanting Sat nam to yourself. Even this simple phrase of truth or true self will start making a change to your mind and its projection.
