Amazing What Om Can Do!

Altered state of change
Euphoric feeling of peacefulness
     and power
Empowering to know

     All is well
     I am finally home

have arrived ~~ 

My higher self there to
          greet me and welcome me

When was I lost?

Why has it taken me
          all these years to realize

Being lost is not important …
          finding my way back 
                   to myself
                        supercedes all

God made me to evolve into
greatness and personal power

Why I got sidetracked
                    no longer important


OM or AUM is the most important and significant word of Mantra tradition.  It is considered as the root mantra of all mantra.  In a majority of Mantra, you will find OM

OM is the most often chanted sound among all the sacred sounds on earth.  This sound is considered as the sound of the existence. 

Until a couple of weeks ago, I just could not get into the art/gift of meditation.

Last year, I “practiced” daily for several months, and I just could not feel it!.  Frustrated … I stopped the ongoing practice.

This changed a couple of weeks ago.  I attended to a restorative retreat in the beautiful location of Ojai, California.  After an exercise with a group of 45 women … I felt it, I heard it, and it was tangible enough, the sensation was palpable!  An amazing experience is an understatement for me!  This experience not only reverberated throughout the room from one end to the other, it vibrated in and through every cell in my being — a big WOW!

Ahhh, it was wonderful!!

    Finding ones way back to oneself is so wonderful. I think some of us go through our whole life never accomplishing this. As to your om experience all I can say is wow.

    Sometimes we think one thing is important and its not. It’s the other…..Beautiful poem about “change.”


  9. brian says:

    finding my way back to myself supercedes all..true that…this was almost a meditation just in the reading…


  10. goatman says:

    I don’t think that you are to “feel” as much as “be”. . .


  11. vivinfrance says:

    What a happy poem, and congratulations on your breakthrough.

    love it,

    self revealing, powerful sentiments too.


  13. Bob says:

    That first verse is great and really draws the reader into the meditative mindset of this poem.


  14. What a beautiful video. I have had difficulty myself with focusing on meditation – however meditating in a group, sharing the energy, always transports me…….must have been glorious in Ojai. Wonderful poem about coming home to oneself, which is what our journey is all about. Great post!


  15. Renee Espriu says:

    Happy for you that you have been able to experience this. I don’t do this type of meditation but another for many years now and understand how wonderful this can be. Nicely written!


  16. dani says:

    what a wonderful experience for you to share! ♥


  17. In those special moments when you connect with the higher power it is simply transcendent. It does take practice, and like any other ability, we master them at different speeds. Shedding the distractions of the day and clearing the mind to make this connection is definitely a skill worth dedicating your time to learning. Thank you for being an inspiration!
