“Normally life runs in a semi-unconscious mode. Bhramari om chanting can change that into a conscious mode.” – Amit Ray
Mindset for Om Chanting:
Positive mind set, right attitude and good habits are the mark of conscious mind. When we act on “semi-unconscious” or “auto-pilot” mode our behavior tends to become repetitive. This is why we are generally unaware of our behavior, in fact most of the time we are not even aware that we are acting unconsciously. “Bhramari Om Chanting or Humming Om chanting sends positive messages to the brain and the cells in our body and can actually reprogram our health and behavior. Humming Om chanting is an effective method to increase the nitric-oxide in the nasal cavity. Nitric oxide has many health benefits. It increases immunity and fights against free radicals and chronic inflammatory diseases.
Practice of Humming Om Chanting:
Humming causes the air to vibrate, which increases the exchange of air between the sinuses and the nasal cavity. In the humming Om chanting, the “…mmmm…” part of the humming Om creates light vibrations just above the nose area and in the lower forehead area, resulting in a large increase in nasal nitric oxide. The frequency of the Om sound creates resonance in the lower forehead area in-between the eyes. Silence between two humming Om chanting is very important. During this phase, the nitric oxide is dissolved in the blood. The gap between two humming Om empties the sinuses and this period of silence allow the NO to accumulate again in the nasal cavity.” – Excerpt from the book “Meditation: Insights and Inspirations” Amit Ray (This material is copyrighted, and published by permission from Inner Light Publishers).
