The Power of Om

The Power of Om

Om is a sacred symbol in Hindu belief. According to legends, when the Universe was created, the first sound to arise was Om – the sound of divinity itself.

According to ancient Hindu tradition, the act of chanting Om has the ability to elevate your state of consciousness into a meditative state, and connect your inner being to nature and all living beings.


The sound of Om vibrates at a frequency of 432 Hz. The physical manifestation of this vibration is thought to clear and open up the sinuses, aid in blood circulation and cardiovascular health, and reduce stress.


Chanting Om at the beginning and the end of your yoga session and meditation is thought to energise your mind and body.


There are many positive effects of chanting Om, including:

  • Improved Sleep
  • Reduced Stress
  • Reduced Anxiety
  • Balanced Emotions
  • Increased Focus


Chanting Om generates an atmosphere of positivity and strengthens your connection with the universe as a whole.


The Universal Mantra

The chanting of Om is thought to activate the Crown Chakra ie. The highest level of self-realisation.

Try this:

  • Pen down your intentions and focus on your desired outcome
  • Sit in a comfortable position on the floor or on a chair
  • Hold your Rudraksha mala or other Japa Mala in your right hand
  • Rotate the beads while chanting Om with every bead
  • Count your beads until you have completed a full circle, and offer thanks to the universe.


The act of chanting Om is thought to hold the keys to unlocking your conscious, subconscious and unconscious mind. For the best results, one should practice a daily chanting of the Om mantra.
