Signing Bowl Alarm Clock and Timer - Ukyioe Girls Festival Chokosai Eisho
One powerful way to tap into the authentic inspiration and boundless creativity potential is to invoke your higher Self. The following meditation, which Yogi Bhajan taught students, can help you sharpen concentration, access intuition, and enhance creativity.
Begin by sitting in any meditation pose, with your eyes focusing on the tip of your nose. Lift your chest and elongate the spine. Lift the crown of the head as your chin relaxes down and in. Let the shoulder blades relax down the back.
Create a connection to the sacred wisdom within by chanting Ong namo guru dev namo three times. This chant calls on the creative consciousness and the subtle intelligence of the entire universe. Ongis similar to Om—the vibrational sound of the universe—but in its active, creative form. While Om is beyond time and space, Ongconnects us to the creative energy embodied in this moment. Namomeans “to acknowledge or call on respectfully.” Guru refers to wisdom or teacher, and dev refers to the subtle or divine.
Next, bring your awareness to the breath and silently repeat the syllables sa ta na ma, the sacred mantras signifying infinity, birth, death, and rebirth–the cycle of creation. Continue for 11 to 62 minutes. When you feel complete, inhale and retain the breath only for as long as it is comfortable. Exhale and continue to breathe naturally.
Take a moment to say a prayer or set an intention for your creative endeavors. To close, chant sat nam (which means “I am truth”) three times.
Singing Bowl Meditation and Yoga Timer with Gentle Chime
Use our unique “Zen Clock” which functions as a Yoga & Meditation Timer. It features a long-resonating acoustic chime that brings your meditation or yoga session to a gradual close, preserving the environment of stillness while also acting as an effective time signal. Our Yoga Timer & Clock can be programmed to chime at the end of the meditation or yoga session or periodically throughout the session as a kind of sonic yantra. The beauty and functionality of the Zen Clock/Timer makes it a meditation tool that can actually help you “make time” for meditation in your life. Bring yourself back to balance.
