Vibrate the Cosmos with Sacred Mantra

“Vibrate the Cosmos; the Cosmos shall clear the path.”

What does ‘Vibrate the Cosmos’ mean? And how can the Cosmos clear our path?

“Turn your mind to the Universal Mind and let things come with ease.”
-Yogi Bhajan

In yogic cosmology it is said that the Universe is made of sound—that there is a vibratory frequency that corresponds to everything in the Universe. All matter is vibrating at certain frequencies. Rocks and stones have a very slow and low frequency. Color and light have a high frequency and can travel through the vacuum of space.

What scientists call “cosmic radiation”—the constantly creative sound left over from the Big Bang—is the primal creative sound vibration that began the creation. This sound energy is constantly vibrating, creating, and expanding the Universe, or Cosmos, infinitely, endlessly.

When we vibrate—by chanting mantra, singing, through music, or through our speech—we directly affect our level of consciousness and well-being, as well as that of others. If we are unconscious in our speech and what we are vibrating, we can create blocks in our life—waves of negativity, self-doubt, and disharmony. We can choose what/how we vibrate.

“‘Vibrate the Cosmos’ means to be aware of your words, and tone of voice. Avoid venting your frustration by bad mouthing someone or repeating over and over what a lousy situation you’re in. Make a practice of consciously choosing your words, and then notice how much energy and spirit you have, how others change around you, and how quickly you get things done.

[Vibrate the Cosmos means] chant. Out loud is better, although silently works, too. Changing your mental frequency changes your emotional response to the situation and environments, allows you to focus on the present demands, and opens up your own inner wisdom and clarity. It also helps others stay calm around you.”
-Dr. Shanti Shanti Kaur

We can consciously choose mantra, harmonious communication, and musical sounds that elevate, heal, and balance us. Repeating sacred sounds dissolves layers of unreality that cause us to falsely identify with the ego. Gradually our inner channels to the Infinite are cleared.

"Mantras are the mind vibration in relationship to the Cosmos. The science of mantra is based on the knowledge that sound is a form of energy having structure, power, and a definite predictable effect on the chakras and the human psyche...Mantra is a powerful combination of words which, if recited, takes the vibratory effect of each of your molecules into the Infinity of the Cosmos.”
