This morning I did NOT want to get out of bed. I wanted to stay under the duvet - all day long with this lil dude.
So I mentally began to vibrate Sat Nam.
“Sat Naam is the bij or seed mantra. It is small and potent. Great things grow from it. If it is not written in your destiny to know higher consciousness, this mantra engraves it into your destiny.” ~ Yogi Bhajan
On any occasion, you can mentally chant Sat on your inhale, and Naam on the exhale. This mantra can cut through the mental clutter and bring you back to your truth. (Or just get you out of bed!)
It is part of many kriyas and meditations, and it is probably the most common kundalini chant, Especially when you learn to integrate it with every breath.
As Yogi Bhajan says, Sat Nam is a bij, or seed mantra. All parts of the whole live within this condensed form. It balances the elements, known as the tattvas, within you.
“Every element of the Universe is in a constant state of vibration manifested to us as light, sound, and energy. The human senses perceive only a fraction of the infinite range of vibration, so it is difficult to comprehend that the Word is actually the totality of vibration which underlies and sustains all creation. A person can tune his or her own consciousness into the awareness of that totality with the use of a mantra. By vibrating in rhythm with the breath to a particular sound that is proportional to the creative sound, or sound current, one can expand one’s sensitivity to the entire spectrum of vibration. It is similar to striking a note on a stringed instrument. In other words, as you vibrate, the Universe vibrates with you.” ~ Yogi Bhajan
