Using chakra mantras during meditation can have a very powerful effect. Imagine a
chakra as an instrument, and the mantra as a tuning fork strike the tuning fork,
and the instrument will come into vibrational resonance with it, clearing out any
energies that do not share the same resonance.

Lets begin with basic mantras called bija mantras, or seed mantras, that havebeen
universally used in meditative practice to harmonize ones energy.

OM: The most well known and universal of the bija mantras it is the sound of
creation and causes energy to gather and flow upward and outward. OM is the
mantra of acceptance and assent. It helps you to accept your higher self
and allow energy to flow openly and freely through you. It also serves as a
gathering mantra, gathering your inward energy and preparing your energy for

KRIM (pronunciation kreem): Chanting this mantra stimulates your lower

chakras to awaken and begin purifying your body.

SHRIM (pronunciation shreem): Its associations lie with the head and
third eye. It promotes bodily and spiritual health but can also be used to bring
beauty and happiness to ones senses.
HRIM (pronunciation hreem): This holds powers of healing and
creativity.Chanting this mantra awakens compassion and purifies the heart.

HUM (pronunciation hoom): This evokes the breakdown of negative

feelings and spreads positivity and vitality through the body.

Read the list and choose the mantra(s) that you

intuitively feel you need. Dont worry about using all of them you may be very
energetically healthy in some respects and not so much in others. Just pick the one(s)
that resonate with your needs (you can ask yourself, is this sound beneficial to
me?) and use it to begin your meditation.

This literally sets the tone for your meditation;then, you can incorporate the healing
energies of the cleansing mantras below. Each of the cleansing mantras correspond to
one of the 7 chakras in your body.

7 Cleansing Mantras
LAM: The cleansing mantra chanted for your Root Chakra, which keeps us
grounded and linked to the earth. Chanting this mantra will cleanse impurities
that can collect in the root chakra literally opening you up to feelings of
security, prosperity and belonging and clearing any blocked energy that is
being prevented from moving through to the other six main energy
centers. Chant LAM if your energy is low, you struggle financially, you
suffer from low self-esteem and you suffer from adrenal fatigue and other
stress-related ailments.
VAM: The cleansing mantra for your Sacral Chakra, which is associated with
sexuality, pleasure and creativity. Opening this chakra will open you up to
others, give you the courage to express yourself and to embrace change. Chant
VAM is you have poor self-image, find it hard to open up in relationships, feel
unsatisfied sexually and suffer from low libido.

RAM: This opens your Solar Plexus Chakra, the seat of your personal power.
Chanting RAM will increase your ability to stand up for yourself, control
negative impulses, and exercise greater self-control. Your self-esteem will
increase as you chant RAM and you will become more confident and self-
assured and your frequent stomach anxiety and pains will subside!

YAM: The cleansing mantra for your Heart

Chakra. You give and receive love through the energy center that is your heart
chakra. If youre not feeling loving, lovable, compassionate or experience
relationship difficulties, you could use some YAM! Chant YAM to heal both
the physical heart and the spiritual (emotional) heart center and open yourself
up to unconditional love and compassion.

HAM: The mantra to unblock your Throat Chakra. This is your physical and
spiritual voice, your means of communicating who you are and what you need
and want from yourself and the universe. The throat chakra governs your ability
to express yourself if its closed, you will find yourself frequently frustrated as
you cannot voice your needs and desires (closing yourself off to opportunities
and having your needs met); and a closed throat chakra makes honesty and
integrity difficult traits to embody. The vibrations from RAM will open your
throat chakra so that your communication energy can flow strongly.
AUM (or OM): This opens your Third Eye Chakra. This is the center of your
forehead and is directly in line with the center of your brain. While OM is one of
the most common mantras and can be used for a wide variety of mantra
meditations, it is particularly important to the cleansing and healing of your
third eye chakra. The third eye chakra (or brow chakra) is the seat of intuition
and life purpose. Chanting OM will break loose the constraints that you have
imposed upon yourself by not allowing yourself to listen to your inner
wisdom and using that wisdom to chart the best course for a life of purpose and

OM or AH: The mantras for your Crown Chakra, the connection to the
divine. A closed crown chakra brings about feelings of insignificance and
pointlessness, leading to a disconnect from spirit and an overly strong
attachment to possessions, relationships and the physical world. Some find that
silence is a more effective practice for opening the crown chakra but OM may
be used to open it as well. Chanting AH represents a release. Think about taking
a deep breath, then letting it go. AH is the sound of releasing and letting go.

Chakra mantras help you to clear your energy pathways so you can thrive,
not just survive; this allows you to make the most of your physical life
experience, creating positive physical, emotional, mental and spiritual change.
