Meditation Practices.


When your mind and heart are truly open abundance will flow to you effortlessly and easily.


I´ve been practicing the So-Hum-Meditation you recommended in your book “The Spontaneous Fulfillment of Desires” for quite a while and really have reaped some remarkable benefits from it, even though I only meditate once a day and only from Monday to Friday. I feel more centered in my everyday activities, experience more intuitive insights and synchronicities. 

I realized lately in your current videos that now you tend to recommend the I-Am-Mantra. Is there a specific reason to that? I also read from other spiritual teachers, that the actual mantra of the breath is Ham-Sa. And there´s also Primordial Sound Meditation, where the Mantra is chosen very individually according to date, time and place of birth. 

So I´m wondering, if there is something I should change in my meditation practice (aside from the fact that I should do it twice every day), which would make it even more effective. Are there really that much differences between the different mantras (there are a lot of them!) and should one stick to only one mantra for an extended period of time?


The important consideration here is that you are getting good results from the so-hum  meditation, therefore continue with it.  But just to put your mind at ease, know that the general meaning ascribed to so-hum is “I am”, so you are also in effect practicing the I am meditation. And regarding the teachers who say that hum sah is the mantra of the breath, it essentially comes down to the same thing. It is the sound of “hum” followed by “s, or “s” followed by “hum.” Since the two syllables are repeated consecutively  during meditation, it’s basically a question of what syllable you start with.

With Primordial Sound Meditation, you are given a bija mantra to match your type and provided formal instruction and guidance. It’s not just a matter of selecting the right mantra, the instruction on how to use the mantra is even more important. So if you want   to learn PSM it will provide you with an effective tool to go beyond your mind and experience your true essence.
