How to practice AUM – Healing vibrational sound
Posted by IYTA, 19-Nov-2016
First set the optimal environment
- Be comfortable;
- Check your posture - soften chin, tongue gently resting on the base of the mouth, lips softly apart.
This is a vibrational healing practice (Mantra) leading you away from the chattering mind.
A: Begin with the inhale. Focus awareness on vibrations of sound resonating in the lower body: feet, legs, knees, thighs. Exhale (Arrr) sending vibrational sound to resonate in these areas (5 times).
U: Begin with the inhale, become aware of vibrations of sounds as they move further up the front body, chest, arms, shoulders, torso, back, spine, lower abdominals, stomach, chest heart, and back to the top of the spine. Become aware of any sensations or pain, exhaling the sound through the upper body, (5 times). Exhale (oooo) into these areas.
M: on chanting, become aware of vibrations of sounds as they move through the throat, jaw, tongue, head and neck awareness, exhale breath and vibrational sound (5 times). Exhale (mmm) into these areas.
AUM: Inhale, chant the whole word five times as you exhale into your entire body.
Rest in the stillness.
