Om Chanting – Om Mani Padme Hum.mp3 – Download MP3 file – 56mb
Some while ago I wrote about binaural beats audio and provided an audio file to download (although it was essentially a metronome – which however can have a similar effects). Sound has a lot of spiritual aspects to it – this is no secret and has long been understood. Meditation in a natural environment can be very inspiring. Buddhists and Zen monks have for millennia used the Om chant to assist with the induction of relaxation and deep meditative experiences.
Modern technology brings relaxation audio cd’s and a number of other technologies. Chief among these are the Monroe Institute and Centerpointe technologies of Hemi-Sync and Holo-Sync respectively. I have spent quite a large amount of time over the years meditating, both with and without the aid of audio. What is interesting is that more often than not meditating with binaural beat audio inspires a very different quality of experience.
Brainwave entrainment is a very effective way of experiencing not only deep meditation – but also both inner and external spiritual worlds. For me, it has not been unusual to also find that these forms of meditation bring on phases of lucid dreaming or extremely vivid dream recall, even in some cases going as far as premonitory dreams. Other events also come and go – visitations, visions, and other such phenomenon. The type of experience is largely dependant upon the audio used, some audio (like Holo-Sync) is very personal and introspective, whilst other audio helps to break down our boundaries of reality.
The introspective inducing nature of some of these binaural beats audio – to me at least – contains a very spiritual texture. If one goes into this with an aware and open mind – with a reasonable feel of the “textures” of their own states of consciousness the audio can certainly aid periods of very rapid self-development. They effectively stir the pot of sludge formed by our buried and suppressed memories and emotions. As they rise up we have to face them – and this can cause short but tough periods of time where you are overwhelmed by this confrontation of feelings. I went through about a week of this, before things levelled out. The experience allowed me to integrate old negative feelings into my being and they have now become something of a positive nature.
It is certainly worth giving it a go.
The “Om Mani Padme Hum” chant is one of the most well known of the Buddhist chants. I have always found that it can bring on a deep meditation with a very pleasant quality to it. It can also aid in the development of visions or waking dreams – these tend to begin as vague hazy flashes of various imagery. Over time and practice such imagery may eventually develop into full blown visions.
I have included a couple of Om Mani Padme Hum files in this post for download. Give them a try – can can produce very interesting and beneficial results.
