Om- What Does It Mean?

Om- What Does It Mean?

In celebration of one of our newest designs, The Om Earrings, we decided to put together a little post explaining what exactly the mantra 'Om' (or Aum) means.  It is difficult to describe, but Om represents everything. It is the seed of creation and contains all the power in the universe. Chanting Om brings into your awareness the physical reality of this world and your body, the subtle impressions of the mind and emotions and the thoughts and beliefs of your life and this world. Om is also sometimes written and presented as Aum, and can be broken down into...
