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 3 different aspects of the divine. 'A', the creative aspect, 'U', the preserver, and 'M', the destroyer. The three syllables when pronounced should invoke all 3 aspects of what is essentially the circle of life without which nothing exists.
Chanting Om should connect us to the powerful vibrations of the universe, our physical self and our thoughts and impressions of the world. It helps us to reach a deeper sense of awareness and creates powerful positive vibrations.
Wear this sacred symbol with pride, and look upon it to invoke calmness whilst remembering your own consciousness and connection to the Divine.
