So Hum Introduction:
Namaste, my friends!
Welcome to the ongoing video series here on Anmolmehta.com. So, are you feeling a little stressed out today? Are you feeling a little anxious? Do you have too many worries going on in your mind? We have the perfect antidote for these conditions and it is so effective that just about one minute of doing this particular mantra meditation is sufficient in helping you calm down, helping you de-stress and bestowing peace and tranquillity.
How to Practice So Hum for Stress Relief:
So, let’s get right to it. I want you to sit up nice and straight, whether you’re sitting cross legged or on a chair does not matter, I want you to come into Gyan Mudra, which is to have your index finger and thumb tips meeting. The other three fingers are pointing straight ahead. You can rest your wrists gently on your knees, have your spine nice and straight, and you’re going to close your eyes for this meditation and do all the breathing through the nose.
As you inhale, you’re going to think the sound “soooo”, and as you exhale you’re gone think the sound “hummm”, so you’re going to chant mentally, So-hum, So-hum. As you inhale slowly and deeply, and as you exhale completely. Again, you’re simply chanting mentally.
What this particular mantra means is “I am that” and by “that” or “thou” it is referring to the Universal Consciousness. That you and Universal Consciousness are indeed one and the same. Therefore drop your worries, drop your stressing, drop your anxiety and merge with infinite consciousness.
Keep your abdomen, nice and relaxed. Breathe with your diaphragm as you do the slow, deep breaths, chanting “Soooo” on the inhalation and “Hummmm” on the exhalation. Let’s do that together now.
It is absolutely wonderful technique. Keep that in your toolbox. Whip it out whenever you need to relax, de-stress, and feel peace and calm.
