Five Seed Mantras

Lets begin with basic mantras called bija mantras, or seed mantras, that have been 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 movement.
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 corresponds to one of the 7
chakras in your body.
Seven Cleansing Chakra Mantras
LAM Root Chakra

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 Sacral Chakra

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 Solar Plexus Chakra

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 Heart Chakra

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
relationships 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 Throat Chakra

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). 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) Third Eye Chakra


This opens your Third Eye Chakra, which is at 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 passion.

OM or AH Crown Chakra

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 (Universe/Source/God) 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
allowing you to make the most of your physical life experience, creating positive physical,
emotional, mental and spiritual change.
