The Great Redeeming Mantra of Shiva: Om Namah Shivaya

Om Namah Shivaya is known as the great redeeming mantra of Shiva, also known as five-syllable mantra.

What it means:

It means “I bow to Shiva”. Shiva is the supreme reality, the Inner Self. It is the name given to consciousness that dwells in all. Shiva is the name of your true identity- your self.

According to Hindu mythology there are three Gods who run this creation. The Brahma-who creates the Universe, The Vishnu-who preserves the Universe and The Shiva-who in the end destroys the Universe. Among the three deities, Shiva, though considered as destroyer, also symbolizes the Inner Self which remains intact even after everything ends.

In this mantra, the chanter (the one who chants) bows to Shiva-his true self.

Om Namah Shivaya is a very powerful mantra. It has been said that if this mantra vibrates continually in your heart, then you have no need to perform austerities, to meditate or to practise yoga. To repeat this mantra you need no rituals or ceremonies, nor must you repeat it at an auspicious time or in a particular place. This mantra is free of all restrictions. It can be repeated by anyone, young or old, rich or poor and no matter what state a person is in, it will purify him.

Repeat “Om Namah Shivaya”, with the feeling that you are bowing to Shiva-your true Inner Self. Repeat this mantra with respect. The Inner Self is the form of God in you. So as you say “Om Namah Shivaya” – “I bow to Shiva”, you are actually bowing to God-the great almighty. The repetition of the name of God is equivalent to be merged in your very being. When you repeat God’s name in your mouth, in one way, you experience God itself. Just repeat this mantra with faith and it’s powerful phonetic vibrations will start doing miracles for you.

Thank you for chanting,

Openness (Why it is Crucial to Be Open) – Teal Swan

You came to this life as an extension and expression of source consciousness in the physical dimension. Because of this, it could easily be said that you are a creation or an art piece of God’s. But as an extension of god, you are god. So, you are both the creator and the created. And neither creator nor creation is meant to be suppressed. When you live in a state of openness, you are allowing the art piece of you, to be painted across this world. You are not restricting yourself. You are also not restricting Source itself. Because of this, it is by far the more “in alignment” way to be. And it can easily be said that walking the spiritual path, is walking the path of complete openness.
We have a choice at all moments of the day; the choice is to be open or to be closed. This is why one of the most beneficial exercises you can do is to ask yourself throughout the day “how am I being closed right now? How am I constricting myself or letting myself be constricted?” and make the necessary changes in favor of openness based on the answer you receive. A state of openness is the real state of freedom. Everything we do is a creative expression of our inner selves. To be constricted in any way, is to prevent the energy of our being from flowing through our bodies and into our lives. If we are committed to the spiritual path, we must commit ourselves to the state of openness.
