Mantra / Chanting Om Namah Shivaya (Om-na-ma-she-vi-ah)

About a year ago I posted a very powerful mantra Om Namah Shivaya! Still to this day when I say a listen to this mantra it does something to my spirit within. I found to video I originally listened to that brought that glorious smile to my face, tears of happiness to my eyes, and the celebration to my heart. Once again I just wanted to share the chant of the people and hope it lifts your spirits as it lifted mine today!

       Om Namah Shivaya is a very powerful and yet peaceful mantra meaning I bow to Shiva . In case you are new to yoga and the philosophy of it, mantra is another word for prayer or if you are really deep a divine speech. Shiva is the supreme reality of inner self. It is the name given to consciousness that dwells in all. Shiva is the name of your true identity- yourself.

This mantra doesn't need a ceremony nor ritual. I say it during my breaks at work, rain or shine! I can feel the up lifting in my heart and my inner-self raising to the surface to connection with my higher-self. What I love about this mantra is it can be use by all that walk any sides of life, and it used by all types of yoga as a celebration.

As a Intuitive and very strong empathic I have to say to myself a lot " I am Leilani" their is so much power in this one statement to me that I am able to cut the thread that doesn't belong to myself so I can be the main focus and only feel my person and not everyone else. So saying this chant/mantra my spirit understand the power of word Om Namah Shivaya!

While you repeat "Om Namah Shivaya", with the feeling that you are bowing to Shiva - your true inner self. Respect this chant/ mantra with respect due to the inner self is the form of the God in you. In Siddha Yoga one of the sayings is God dwells within you as you which is speaking as your inner self as Shiva. So by saying "Om Namah Shivaya" , "I bow to Shiva" ; you are actually bowing to God - the great almighty. The meaning of the name God is equivalent to be merged in his very being. Just repeating this mantra with faith and its powerful phonetic vibrations will start doing a miracle for you.
