Gayatri meditation

13 mins

The Gayatri is an ancient mantra used for thousands of years to bring light and clarity to the mind.

Om Bhur Bhuvah Swaha

Tat Savitur Varenyam

Bhargo Devasya Dhimahi

Dhiyo Yo Nah Prachodayat

In this short session, join me as I share this mantra with you and explore it's many benefits. We will then do a short guided meditation, taking you though a 3 stage technique, using this mantra, to bring you inward to a place of deep inner stillness. Enjoy this beautiful, universal, prayer for peace!

You can even try using this meditation technique for the next 24 days and discover the power of dedication and intention. Offer these positive vibes to your loved ones, a special event, people in need or even towards your health and wellbeing.

Here are some of the many benefits of the Gayatri mantra:

  • Activates Vishuddhi, Ajna and Sahasra chakras
  • Significantly slows the breathing - thereby helping to regulate the heart beat
  • Connect to the universe around you - it's said to be the "song of the universe"
  • Helps to illuminate the soul of the seeker in their search of Truth
  • Associated with the sun and light as it gives it's energy freely to everyone

I have used this meditation for a while, and especially today I sent positive thoughts to my parents in Norway, as I have not seen them for a long time. I just wished that my dad would be happy today. Then he called me and he was so happy: the nursing home where my mum is has started vaccinating against Covid today :-). It was in the news. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
