Mantras for Change
Meaning: Om means the sound or vibration of the universe. It’s the single most important mantra and meaning in the east.
It’s beyond beginning or end, and symbolizes the trinity of Vishnu, Brahma, and Shiva.
What it does: Chanting om brings us into a calm and balanced state. The vibration helps the mind to release restless thoughts and focus on the moment.
Om Namah Shivaya
Meaning: Om Namah Shivaya means “I bow to that which I am becoming”. In the context of this chant, Shiva represents the inner reality…the truest nature of ourselves.
What it does: This chant helps to expand the innate wisdom we all carry within us. It’s basically a way of declaring “war” on bad habits and ignorance. Once these are shed, the soul can shine through and true happiness is attained.
Om Gum Ganapatayei Namaha
Meaning: Om Gum Ganapatayei Namaha means “I bow to Ganesh, the remover of obstacles. I pray for protection and blessing”. Ganesh symbolizes the quality within ourselves that can overcome challenging difficulties, whether they be on the inside (like negative thoughts) or outside (an important interview).
What it does: Affirming your ability to overcome difficulties is deeply empowering. While it may not be the easiest route to take, difficulties were made to be conquered- even if that means the real lesson is learning how to accept defeat or loss.
