According to the law of nature and attraction, every particle in this universe is a source of energy. Our thoughts, mind, body and spirit emits energy in the form of vibrations. Om is that mystic vibration which activates all the senses and raises a level of self-awareness. It is a sacred word that draws a divine source of positive lavender energy through each cell of the body.
The vibrations created by citation of ‘om’ resonate with the frequency of our higher self, which is the most powerful creation of the creator. The pronunciation of “om” encompasses the sounds of three syllables each of which has an eternal purpose.
A – Originating from the back of the throat this syllable creates a tide of vibration in the chest and solar plexus. It equates the conscious mind – the doer of all actions.
U – This syllable resonates along the upper palate and creates a string of vibrations in the throat. It equates the sub-conscious mind – the planner of all actions.
M – This syllable resonates the deep silence of the Infinite. It is the unconscious state – the state of deep sleep.
