Aham Brahmasmi II

Here is an Aham Brahmasmi meditation from The Chopra Center:

Aham Brahmasmi (ah-HUM brah-MAHS-mee) is a Sanskrit sutra whose English translation is “the core of my being is the ultimate reality, the root and ground of the universe, the source of all that exists.” When we repeat this sutra and let it resonate deep within, we expand our awareness of our eternal, unbounded nature. Here is a sutra practice you can use right now:

Begin by meditating for a few minutes, then imagine that you are a crystal bead. You reflect the light of every being in the universe, and your light is reflected in them. Silently repeat the words “Aham Brahmasmi” and continue to envision yourself as a beautiful jewel, reflecting and absorbing the light of the entire universe. Rest in the silence and feel the expansiveness of your being – an expression of the infinite field of intelligence and all possibilities.

Aham Brahmasmi

Last week’s meditation was with the Sanskrit sutra Aham Brahmasmi. Brahman means spirit, so: “I am spirit soul.”

When we realize that the core of our being is interconnected with all, we can move from a place of positive creation and intention. We used it as a mantra practice breathing in: Aham (I am), breathing out: Brahmasmi (the Creative Principle). “What you magnetize in your mind, you will bring into your life,” according to Goswami Kriyananda. He has also said there is a time delay, it’s not immediate. We must keep directing our thoughts toward the positive, letting go of those that aren’t in our best interest.

Observe your thoughts today. What intentions are you calling in? What do you want for your highest purpose? What are you devoting your time and energy toward? Are you sharing those intentions with another and holding that intention together? This is how we stay on the path. Please share your intentions in the comments for inspiration!

OM Shanti Namaste
