Getting to know the Mantras
On several times, for certain, you might have found publications or even videos on some sites that talk about these famous writings, but what really are the so-called Mantras?
For those who are getting started in Yoga or any practice that includes energy management, the Mantras are basically series of syllables, generally with no meaning at all, and which come from the Sanskrit and means "Free the mind," so if you ever get to hear someone talking about any, you will know that invariably means that: a set of words that will help you to focus your mind and bring changes in your energetic vibrations.
Take it for granted, believe it or not, that energy flows all around us and sometimes you've probably felt the need to change the vibration or energy that surrounds you. One of the best ways to do this without having to put your house upside down, as some practices suggest, is through Mantras.
In Yoga, an ideal practice is to start and finish reciting one of these Mantras and repeat it all over again to obtain its benefits from the vibrations that will propitiate to change the negative energy into positive, will also give you a higher level of consciousness, and its transformation power will become more remarkable.
The best known of all the Mantras is the OM, and is one of the most traditional for practitioners of Yoga. This Mantra can be recited aloud or silently and will help you to channel the energy of your body and focus your mind correctly.
If you want to improve your Yoga sessions and energy level, below you will find a fragment of the OM Mantra so you can start practicing. If you have any questions on how to do this Mantra resonate do not hesitate to ask your Yoga instructor; he can certainly give you some advice and/or recommendations to help you achieving a better vibration, and therefore obtain a good harmonization in the energy of your chakras.
