My mind spins with so many thoughts a good amount of the time. When I chant Mantras with awareness, my thoughts seem to get organized into the vibration of the Mantra, that allows me to just be. I love this experience. What’s your experience when you chant? Love, Snatam

When I chant mantras, I feel I let go of the flow of thoughts. Inside comes a natural silence, where resonates the sound, and this vibration of my own voice (all of ours if we chant together) touches my heart and opens it to Love. Inner space, outer space, all this becomes one, vast and joyful. And it still resonates for a while after the end of the chanting, if I choose to stay in that still beautiful place.
When I allow myself to chant without expectation or that pesky internal critic.. I feel free as if I have fallen into grace :) The words vibrate in the body, calm my mind and the soul is free! The chanting of Wahe Guru or Naam Simran, recently opened up some delightful space within me that was full of thoughts that do not serve me. I love to sing these words and let them take me. The thought of being carried across the ocean, held by the angels is so calming. I love the feeling of being held gently by mantra and being carried releasing my human-ness, surrendering... Wahe Guru !
My experience when I chant is one of sinking deep into the Mantra, of the mind „dissolving“ into a state of flow with the mantra, with the words and the sound. I feel the vibration of the sound on my lips and in my body, the sensation of the words on my tongue and in my mouth, and when I really let the mantra lead me, it often takes me to a place of inner peace and spaciousness and I can feel the energy of love and joy flow through me!
My mind is always full of this and that, but when I sing Mantras they bring me immediately back into my heart, what a gift 💝 Waheguru Yogini
