“Therefore with the pronunciation of ‘OM’ the acts of sacrifice, gift and austerity as laid down in the ordinances are always commenced by the knowers of the ETERNAL.”
The Bhagavad Gita, XII 23-24.
Om has been called the sound of the universe, but, Om is much more than a sound, as it a salutation to the ascending human being with spiritual, physical and mystical meanings. And, when projected with divine purpose will raise the energy of the individual to be more in harmony with the Absolute.
Om is a Sanskrit word with many levels of applications and meanings. Many of us are familiar with Om Mani Padme Hum which is considered a 6 syllable sentence meaning, “O the Jewel in the Lotus.” Yet esoteric study states it is a 7 syllable sentence with 7 levels of meanings and applications. H.P. Blavatsky simplified its meaning as, “I am in thee and thou are in me.” Man’s indissoluble union with the Absolute or Universe.
Om or Aum, pronounced awm can be projected in one or more syllables or frequencies of energy. More accurately would be more levels rather than syllables as it is a continuous sound with higher frequencies of energy. And, it has an effect that can transcend to other dimensions.
An 1 syllable projection of Om as explained in The Bhagavad Gita:
“All the gates closed, the mind confined in the heart, the life-breath fixed in his own head, concentrated by yoga, ‘Om!’ the one-syllabled ETERNAL, reciting, thinking up Me, he who goeth forth, abandoning the body, he goeth on the highest path.”
The Bhagavad Gita, VIII 12-13.
In 2 levels/syllables: A-um, Matter and Spirit are one, or Man and the Absolute are one.
And, as 3 levels, Om represents Body, Mind and Soul of Man that is one in the Absolute.
Esoterically Om is symbolized with 4; the FourSquare. Man is in essence Spirit, one in the Absolute. Yet in this dimension and mental condition we separate our soul qualities into: Energy, Mind, Law, Love.
Let us bring the esoteric power of Om into our very realistic, human life to help awaken ourselves to our soul, the Absolute within. And to refine our mental frequency, reaching into forth dimensional Love.
Om, the Absolute within
When I do this meditation I prepare by setting comfortably. Back straight like a string is pulling from the top of your head, knees slightly apart and feet flat on floor. Place hands cupped up on tights. Eyes closed or slightly open.
2. Deep breathes
Physically relax and begin breathing deeply with about 4 counts in, 4 counts hold, 4 counts exhale, 4 counts hold.
3. Make the Contact with Universal Life Energy
Become mentally silence; enter the Silence. Make the Mental Contact with Universal Life Energy and feel it flowing through you, entering through your hands, top of your head and through root chakra. Begin to visualize blowing Lght on the Life Center, kundalini and let that energy rise up.
4. 1st level
In the beginning sound O (aw) from the depth of your diaphragm visualizing the kundalini as Light and Seat of your Soul. Blow Universal Life Energy, which I see as Light also, with that sound and energy of O (aw), onto your Life Center (kundalini). The sound though medium comes from deep within and my mouth is fairly open in a sphere shape. Having united with Universal Life Energy the sound waves in the air you are projecting is now a spiritual power. Feel the Power vibrate and light up in your root chakra.
5. 2nd level
As you move to the second level, my mouth is still in the shape of O though a smaller, more compact sphere. Feel the energy and Light move up to your heart. Let It rest there a few counts in a softer volume. Feel the Power vibrate in your heart chakra and let it brighten and purify your physical heart, your emotional heart, and your Spiritual Heart.
6. 3rd level
As you begin to close your mouth continue to complete the sound with m. And feel the energy and Light rise up through your throat and into your head as your tongue rests on the roof of your mouth.
Physically finish the sound while continuing to visualize and feel the energy continue to rise up and out through your crown chakra into the 8th chakra and 4th dimension.
7. Meditate between
Rest and relax and concentrate on Spirit within. Focus on feeling and mentally merging with the Divine within yourself.
Continue with 3 more cycles for a total of 4 Om projections and meditation after each, remembering to keep inhales and exhales balanced.
In the hope You and all humanity finds this meditation enlightening, PortiaSLB
