This powerful mantra is the mantra used for the healing of oneself and others. It is full of vibratory vowels and primordial sounds and has an energetic effect on the neurological and endocrine system. It is the mantra that serves for healing, to release what hinders us, let go of what we do not need. This is a very old form and is especially used for its healing power and for its power to find strength and personal.
"For healing at a distance, this is the mantra. It cuts across time and space so you can send healing energy to someone thousands of miles away as easily as you can send it to someone across the room." -Shakti Parwha Kaur
Kundalini Yoga practitioners have been using this meditation for the last four and a half decades. Try it when you want to send healing energy to a loved one or need healing yourself.
Practicing the mudra and the mantra properly will optimize the energy flow and will make this meditation all the more potent.
Posture: Sit in Easy Pose (sitting on the floor, with legs crossed) or in a chair with feet planted firmly on the ground, with the spine straight, and a light Neck Lock applied (chin pulled back slightly).
Mudra: The mudra (hand position) is most important. The elbows are bent down by the sides, and are tucked comfortably but firmly against the ribs. The forearms are almost perpendicular to the floor, with the hands extended out at a 45 degree angle from the center of the body. Most importantly, the palms are perfectly flat, facing up, hands bent back at the wrists. You should feel a pull in the lowest part of your forearm as you almost hyper-extend your wrist to make the palms flat. (This tends to be the most challenging part of the meditation so it is important not to let the hands relax out of the position.) The fingers are kept side by side, except that the thumb is spread from the other four fingers.
Eyes: Eyes are closed.
Mantra: This mantra consists of 8 basic sounds:
Ra Ma Da Sa, Sa Say So Hung
Ra - means Sun and connects us with the frequency that gives energy.
Ma - means Moon, and it makes us more receptive.
Da - is the energy of the Earth, energy that roots us with the Mother, gives us security and strength.
Sa - is the Total Infinite and while you sing it your energy rises bringing the healing energy of the Universe.
Sa - by singing for the second time, you bring the energy of infinity to you.
Say - is a way to honor the whole. It is like a secret name of God.
So- is the vibration that unites.
Hung - is the Infinite. It is the essence of creation.
This mantra taps into the energies of the sun, moon, earth, and the Infinite Spirit to bring deep healing. It is important to pull the navel point powerfully on the first Sa and on Hung. Note that the word Hung is not long and drawn out. Rather, it is clipped off forcefully as you pull in the navel. Chant one complete cycle of the entire mantra with each breath. Then deeply inhale and repeat. Remember to move the mouth precisely with each sound. Try to feel the resonance in the mouth and in the sinus area.
Mental Focus: You can choose to mentally visualize the person or persons that you are wanting to heal, as you send this energy to them for their well-being.
Time: Continue chanting for 11 to 31 minutes.
If you wish to mediate for 11 minutes, you can use the background music of Ajeet Kaur:
To End: To end the meditation, inhale deeply and hold the breath, as you offer a healing prayer. Visualize the person you wish to heal, yourself or others as being totally healthy, radiant, and strong. See the person completely engulfed in a healing white light and completely healed. Then exhale and inhale deeply again, hold the breath, and offer the same prayer again. Exhale.
To complete, inhale deeply, stretch your arms up high, and vigorously shake out your hands and fingers for several seconds. Keep the arms up and hands shaking as you exhale. Repeat two more times and relax.
