WHAT IS MANTRA AND SOUND VIBRATION?
HOW DOES IT WORK, AND WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS ?

“In the beginning was the word and the word was God”
Everything in the universe is built on sound vibration - that is how it all began, and sound is one of the most important tools we use in healing and transformation.

Mantra, as used in Kundalini yoga, is a specific quantum technology which uses sound vibration to affect and elevate consciousness, as well as to heal us on all levels.  It is a specific combination of syllables mainly used from an ancient language (Ghurmuki), which is based heavily on the science of Naad. These sounds or vibrations tune, quieten and focus the mind.  These specific combinations of syllables, words, phrases and rhythms hold great power in their meaning and sound current to create different healing and transforming effects in the body and also to elevate consciousness.  By repeating them over and over again, we increase their power. When we vibrate these sounds, we are tuning into specific frequencies of consciousness - a bit like a TV or radio tuning into different channels. The universe reflects back to us what we vibrate out.  So what we vibrate or project out is what we will draw back to us.  If we vibrate and tune into a frequency of healing and abundance, then that is the vibration we will fill ourselves with, and then project out, and then finally what we will attract back to us or manifest.

By thinking, whispering, or chanting a mantra, we are vibrating it, and it will send out specific waves which will then tune into the corresponding frequency, invoking a particular energy, or positive power, which is held in that particular sequence of syllables, sounds, rhythms, and words of empowerment and praise.
With each thought, and each word, we have the power to create.  If thoughts or words are negative then that is what we create and vice versa.

Through the power of the vibrations of these specific sounds and their meanings, we can create positive thought, feelings, actions and manifestations.

Mantras can be chanted in any language, for instance in the Christian faith we may chant “Hallelujah”, or we may just make up our own mantras or affirmations which we can repeat over and over again to help us is our lives like – “this exam will be easy” etc, but in Kundalini yoga, they are mainly chanted in Ghurmuki, the language of the Sikh Gurus, as that s the tradition and culture Kundalini Yoga came from. If it had been a Spanish practice, then the mantras would have been chanted in Spanish. The mantras in Kundalini Yoga have been tried and tested over a long period of time and through experience have been found to have had a most profound effect.  It is an old language based heavily on the Science of Naad.  Naad is the sound current all language and human communication is built on through sound. The ancient people who created and developed language all over the world would have had some knowledge of this science, which is why different words have certain vibrations, effects and meanings.

Mantras can have an effect on us by listening to them or just by being in their presence, from the vibrations or waves they send out; affecting our brain patterns, but this is how they work by chanting them. The brain uses certain fluids to transmit messages, not arteries and veins like the rest of the body, as these messages need to travel very quickly.  Mantra will affect and activate these fluids in a most positive way.  When mantra is chanted correctly, the tongue, hits the reflex or meridian points in the roof of the mouth.  There are 32 pairs of meridian points on the hard palate behind the teeth, and 10 pairs on the soft palate, making 84 points in total.  When these points are hit in a certain sequence, a coded message is then sent to the brain through the meridians.  The more the mantra is repeated, the more strongly the coded message is embedded into the brain.  The messages go directly to the hypothalamus gland in the old part of the brain.  The hypothalamus gland then begins to secrete, sending messages to the other glands, like the pineal and pituitary gland, to also start secreting.  This sets off a chain reaction in the rest of the body, to get the desired effect, depending on the mantra.  But all the Kundalini mantras have a positive effect and although knowing their meanings is useful, it is not essential in getting the desired effect.
Through sound, we can alter patterns of the mind, by altering the chemicals in the brain, but it is through the projection of the mind that we reap the rewards.

As well as for elevation of consciousness, we can use mantra to heal the body, mind and emotional states, and also to attract or create prosperity, success, and love, and also to clear the subconscious and unconscious minds of negative thoughts which have got trapped or caught up there. If these negative thoughts are not cleared out, it will result in them resurfacing unconsciously in our daily lives and behaviour, either as negative behaviour patterns, habits and addictions, or just in our daily perceptions of and projections into the world – they can resurface as depression, anger and other negative human traits. Clearing the subconscious mind of negative thoughts which have got caught up there is the only way to break these negative behaviour patterns. Chanting mantra, like all other meditation can help reduce stress, heal on all levels, and bring and/or maintain peace, calm and joy into our lives. It can help us raise our own vibrational frequency by filling us with positively, and can also help us to be more present and to live in the now, in each moment - not living in the past, or worrying about what may or may not happen in the future, but just allowing us to be..... and to focus on what is important in our lives.
