Hari Om Meditation-How To Do It, Benefits, And Precautions
I’m sure you’ll agree with me that life is better when all your chakras are aligned, balanced and healthy. Hari Om meditation helps to make that a reality.
Balancing your chakras does the following:
- Produces happiness
- Stops depressiion
- Stops anxiety
- Boosts overall health
- Makes you more creative and more productive.
Hari Om meditation is an alternative way of activating the chakras.
Hari Om meditation balances the chakras
In a moment, I’ll show you how to do Hari Om meditation and the health benefits that this amazing meditation technique offers.
Our spiritual being operates through prana, the life fore.
Prana runs throughout our nadis (the energy channels in our body).
The body contains thousands of nadis and many chakras. It is through these nadis and chakras that our energy is channeled. But sometimes that energy does not flow correctly. And sometimes the chakras get blocked.
When we clear the chakra we improve our psychical, spiritual and psychological health. And one way in which we can do so is by practicing Hari Om meditaiton, which is a Hindu and yoga meditation in which we meditate on the mantra Hari Om.
If you’re new to mantras you will probably want to read my ultimate guide to mantras before continuing.
A mantra is a serioes of words, or a phrase, with spiritual powers. These mantras change our inner frequency and produce numerous heath benefits.
One of the main benefits of Hari Om meditation is that is stops depression.
How Hari Om meditation helps with depression
My guide to Healing Depression with Meditation reveals how meditation can cure this terrible mental health condition (it saved me myself from depression, as I’ve written about in that link).
As a meditation teacher I have taught Hari Om meditation to many different people, all of whom it has helped to live positive lives.
The power of Hari Om meditation was particularly important for one meditation student, who I’ll call Sarah as she may not want me to use her real name.
A couple of years ago Sarah was suffering from depression and needed some spiritual healing. Sarah was also suffering from fatigue caused by insomnia. She found it very difficult to find motivation. This was a real shame as Sarah is a very bright and loving woman.
Sarah and I went through many different meditation techniques together, but it was Hari Om meditation that really changed things for her.
The reason why Hari Om meditation worked so well for Sarah can be explained through the very words “Hari Om.”
It is these two words (the mantra) that make Hari Om one of the best spiritual healing techniques.
Hari Om Meaning
The meaning of Hari Om is all about removal:
- Hari means to remove, as in to remove suffering.
- “Om” is the universal vibration which connects us to the infinity of divine creation.
So, if you have depression, for you Hari Om means “Removing the suffering of depression and reconnecting with the universal energy.”
If you have other problems the meaning of Hari Om will be removing whatever obstacle it is.
I previously mentioned my student Sarah. Sarah practiced Hari Om meditation for twenty minutes a day for one month. Over the course of 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, she began to work, getting a regular job (she has since been promoted to a high position in an international company—go Sarah!).
For Sarah, Hari Om meditation did exactly what it said on the tin: “End suffering and reconnect with life.”
How to do Hari Om meditation
- Find somewhere comfortable in a meditation room, perhaps with a meditation pillow if you find these useful.
- You may wish to use a mantra to count your chants.
- As with most meditation techniques, sit comfortably, close your eyes and focus your mind on your breathing. Do so for five minutes in order to relax and find focus.
- As you breathe out begin to use the chant “Hari Om” (which is pronounced “Hari Aum”).
- Focus on the sound of the words and feel the energy of the mantra in your body.
- You can adapt this meditation to incorporate the chakras if you wish.
- Continue for twenty minutes.
Regular practice of Hari Om meditation once a day will help you overcome any suffering and to reconnect. It will also develop energy in your body.
