"Om Mani Padme Hum, Om Mani Padme Hum"
Somehow I feel moved to put this in my blog today.
Perhaps it is related to yesterdays article on Cow speak from Animal spirits; perhaps it is to do with my prayer meet tonight on Psychic Grid. Perhaps it is a message for someone. If it is the link between all of them is compassion.
I am a great believer of working with positive energies when you want to attract positive energies around you. If you are a maths person you will know that you can pop in positive to change the negative. In other words you have minus 8, you pop in an 8 and you are back to the lovely "I am" moment of 0, the Fool.
I cam across this mantra once in a book from Borders. I had some difficulties/issues/concerns at work and used this. In my thoughts I used it with the person that I was not seeing eye to eye with.
Can I just mention here that the intent is the thing that activates the energy of the words/visualisations... In some ways the meaning of the words, their definition, is not mportant; it is the intent behind them. We are back to "in-spirt-ation" again; spirit in action.
There are nicer softer versions of this on You Tube. But I am drawn to this one because of the Budha. Notice the way the Budha rests a hand palm towards him as he sits, as if he is directing energy to the Solar Plexus. This is the "power" chakra associated with: Fire, Ego identity, personal power, will, enery, autonomy; self-definition, our effectiveness, metabolism; it helps us to respond to things in a gentle way, spontaneously, with self identification and surity.
The Budha is encouraging us to think the words, "Om Mani Padme Hum", with chanting or using them as a thought mantra we can send them out into our environment. However sometimes, our Ego creeps in and weakens or challenges our intent. My message that comes with the Budha and this mantra then is to share in the positive energies you are sending out. Breathe it deep into your solar plexus to strengthen that area and in turn that will strengthen the intent when you next work with this mantra.
Comparitive cards in tarot could be: Ace of wands and King of Wands.
Om Mani Padme Hum with tarot:
If someone is having issues at work, try placing the King or the Ace of wands near you. You can always copy it out and make it into a coaster for your coffee mug! - Reflect on the words, or simply repeat them to yourself a few times. In meetings remember to calm with your breathing, think of the words, breathe them in, breathe them out.
