Mantra for grounding
this mantra connects the earth and the vastness of the ether and projects it from the heart. it is done with visualization. it makes you present, calls on your highest spirit, keeps you humble and effective on your new ventures, and attracts opportunities for prosperity.
dharti hai akash hai guru ram das hai
dharti hai - the earth is.
akash hai - the ethers are.
guru ram das hai - guru ram das is.
visualization: as you chant 'dhartee hai' visualize a gray earthy tone from the navel expanding on both sides down to the whole earth and hold.
as you chant 'akasha hai' visualize from the eye brows andbrow point up a vast blue sky expanding into the ethers and hold.
as you chant 'guru ram das hai' visualize from the heart center a huge, circular, bright white light expanding out in all
directions and encompassing everything in this light.
also called the isht sodhanna mantra, this kundalini mantra given by yogi bhajan connects the earth and the vastness of
the ether and projects it from the heart.
the meaning is part of how this works.
the last line, “guru ram das hai” means that guru ram das is, guru ram das represents the heart energy made manifest into the world. it projects straight out from the heart. so first you call upon the earth, then the heavens, and the energy meets and manifests through your heart. this mantra also calls on your highest spirit, keeps you humble and
effective on your new ventures, and attracts opportunities for prosperity. why? because all of that is governed by the heart and your ability to channel energy through it.
the heart chakra is a balance point. it is the place of balancebetween the lower and upper chakras, just as the energy of guru ram das can serve as a channel between the energy of
the lower and higher planes. this is a mystical and powerful mantra, and the symbolism could be explained in great detail
and at length. the point of any of these mantras is to do them. to sing them and to let them sing you.
try it out. when you are busy and frazzled, calm yourself for a few minutes and stay present to the chant.
come practice in class. see you there. #earthday #grounding #connecttoheartandsoul
