Chakra Purification Process

Taken from: Health – It’s All About Consciousness

For this Process, our breathing will be deep and full, breathing from the belly to the top of the rib cage. As we chant the sounds, we should open up to both the resonance of the voice and the vibration in the body where the particular chakra spins.  It is suggested that we remain in silence for a minute or two between the toning for each chakra.

Following is the list of seed sounds that access the elemental qualities of each chakra.

LAM for the Root Chakra

Curve the tip of the tongue up and back, placing it on the rear section of the upper palate to pronounce a sound like the word “alum”, without the initial “a”.

VAM for the Naval Chakra

Place the upper teeth on the inner section of the lower lip and begin with a breathy consonant to imitate the sound of a fast-moving car.  Pronounce the mantra like “fvam”.

RAM for the Solar Plexus Chakra

Place the tip of the tongue on the roof of the front section of the upper palate, roll the “r” and pronounce the mantra like the first part of the world “rum-ble”.

YAM for the Heart Chakra

Pronounce the sound like the word “yum” (as in yummy).

HAM for the Throat Chakra

Pronounce the world “hum” (as in humming).  Allow the breath to extend beyond the resolution of the consonant.

OM for the Third Eye Chakra

Pronounce the sound as a barely audible whisper, allowing the sound and the breath to resonate in the cranial area.

AH for the Crown Chakra

Pronounce the AH by forming the sound near the rear of the palate.
