My Mantras for Relieving Pain

It’s been three weeks since my horrible fall. I can use my arm and shoulder a little, but it’s taking daily physical therapy, a good night’s sleep, regular cardio exercise and six more weeks to gain full mobility. And, damn, it’s my right arm!

I’m a person who is literally on the run everyday. I’m used to doing things fast, them move on to the next thing I have to do fast, and so on.
It’s been tough. Honestly, a little depressing. It has been taking me much longer to do everything. Simple things, like showering, dressing, eating, lifting, even writing this now is taking much longer than it used to.

Could it be that I’m getting old? No friggin way. I’ve turned to my spiritual side for a little extra help. Yes, I am praying. And doing mantras every day. I can use all the help I can get.

What’s a mantra? Mantras are specific sounds or vibrations. When either chanted out loud or repeated silently, they can create a desired effect in any area of your physiology or life—for healing, transformation, and inner awakening.

Healing mantras are normally repeated with the attention in the area of discomfort—or, you could say, directing the vibration to where it is needed.

The vowel sounds can also be used for healing. These are non-local, meaning you can chant one of them and direct its vibration wherever you choose.

Aaa
Eeeee
Eye
Ooooo
Uuuuuu

I’ve been using the vowel sounds Ooooo and Eeeee (ha, it’s almost like how I sound when I am trying to get dressed) and a specific mantra for healing: “Tayata Om Bekanze Bekanze Maha Bekanze Radza Samudgate Soha.” (Ok, this takes some practice. While I’m busy trying to chant this, maybe I will forget about my pain for a while!)

What you do is take a big, deep breath and and begin the chant on the exhale, chanting through the entire breath.

I’ve been taught to chant a sound (or sounds)11 times every day. It has been helping; just the breathing alone delivers oxygen to my shoulder, decreasing the pain a little more.

You can do this at home too! There are some powerful healing mantras; here are some of the simpler ones, for example:

Mmm – Sinuses
Nnn – Ears
Eemm – Eyes
Lmm – Nose
Paam -Stomach
Kaa Gaa Gha – Throat
Yaa Yu Yi – Jaw
Ma – heart
Sssss – Lungs and large intestine
Shhh – Liver and small intestine
Wooo – Kidneys and bladder
UU-AH-EE-MM – Energizing, wakeup
MM-EE-AH-UU – Relaxing, bedtime

Happy healing! Namaste…
