Yogic Living: The Power of Sound to Transform & Heal

Many of us are hesitant to chant out loud in our first Kundalini Yoga class. It can feel foreign and strange. Once we ‘break through’ the doubt, fear, and self-consciousness, chanting becomes an integral part of our practice, and for many of us, our favorite part. What is it about chanting mantras that seems so magical and holds such appeal? How is it that chanting is so powerful in opening hearts and raising consciousness?

Every time you chant a mantra, you are tapping out a particular sequence and rhythm that initiates a chemical reaction in the brain and body. It’s as if you have an electronic, computerized security system in your mouth. Punch in the right code on the upper palate and you gain entry to the brain and your inner chambers of higher consciousness. When we sing or repeat mantras, we call the heavens down to the Earth to manifest in our own hearts.
