What is the Meaning of Hari Om? 

In my massive guide to mantra meditation, I explained how different mantras mean different things, and that most mantras are in Sanskrit.

One such mantra is Hari Om, which means “To remove”. 

The word Hari is a Sanskrit word that refers to the universal love and consciousness of all creation. And Om is the primordial sound that represents formlessness in its single syllable.  

It means to remove calcified energy

Meditating on the mantra

helps us to remove energy blocks so that chi/prana can flow properly through the body. [Read: Spiritual Techniques To Remove Negative Energy]

Energy blocks lead to health problems according to theories of Eastern medicine.

Blocks of energy in any part of the body or mind can create significant health problems. Hence why many people use chi meditation techniques to clear energy blocks.

When you get energy or chi flowing through the body and mind, you create internal harmony that is conducive to good health and well-being.

That’s why I recommend using Hari Om in conjunction with chi meditation.

My experience  

When we meditate on Hari Om we remove energy blocks. And this leads to better health and well-being.

I witnessed the power of this manta with one of my online meditation students: Sarah.

Sarah as suffering from depression, which in turn was causing her to have insomnia and an eating disorder.

Sarah practised using the mantra for meditation for twenty minutes a day for one month.

Over that month, I saw many changes in Sarah. The changes began with minor things: getting out of bed earlier, sleeping better, eating healthily. Then Sarah found more energy, and she began to work, getting a regular job.

Sarah tells me that she believes that the mantra was vital for her transformation.

So, how do you do it?

Hari Om Benefits   

The benefits of this mantra are all about removing obstacles in order to improve our energy. 


Clearing the chakras 

Our spiritual being operates through prana, the life force. Prana runs through nadi (the energy channels in our body) into the seven chakras.

However, sometimes that energy does not flow correctly. And sometimes the chakras get blocked. This can lead to numerous health complications, both physical and mental.

When we clear the chakras, we improve our psychical, spiritual, and psychological wellbeing.  And this is one of the benefits of this meditation.  

Less Sadness

As a meditation teacher, I have taught the method to many different people, many of whom it has helped to live positive lives.

The benefits were particularly crucial for one meditation student, Debbie. A couple of years ago, Debbie was suffering from sadness and needed some spiritual healing. She was continually tired and unmotivated. This was a real shame as she is a very bright and loving woman.

Debbie and I went through many different exercises together, but it was Hari Om that changed things for her.

The reason this technique was so pivotal for Debbie can be explained through the very words “Hari Om,” meaning “removal”. 

With this meditation, Sarah was able to remove the negative thoughts that were plaguing her mind. After some practice, she reconnected with the present moment, and this helped her to get herself back on her feet. 


Practice Hari Om daily to help remove any blockages that are preventing you from being your true self.
