Happy Summer Solstice!

Today, we celebrate the longest day of the year - the day of light.

As you look at the sun these days around the Summer Solstice, imagine a point exactly on the other side of sun – that is where you will be six months from now at the Winter Solstice on Dec. 21st. These two points of vision one at the point of greatest darkness and the other at the zenith of light are markers in our extraordinary journey of the year and are central to the guiding the flow of creation, manifestation in many cultures including the roots of yoga in India. The Summer Solstice marks the beginning of the Dakshinaya period where for 6 months the earth moves in the southern or “dakshina” orbit towards the Winter Solstice.  

 - Shiva Rea

This image is of the manipura or solar-plexus chakra that holds our inner fire and thus comes alive during the season of light.

Find a place to meditate today where you can soak up the light and sun, as you meditate to day, enliven your manipura chakra it with the bija mantra “RAM” repeated 108 times.

ह्रीॅं

Hrim is the prime mantra of the Great Goddess and ruler of the worlds and holds all her creative, transforming and healing powers, therefore is the main Shakti mantra. Hrim governs over the cosmic magnetic energy and the power of the soul and causal body.

Hrim is a bija mantra of magical force, captivation and empowerment. It can be used relative to any deity or object whose presence we wish to access at the level of the heart. It brings about joy, ecstasy and bliss. Hrim both purifies and exalts us in our inner quest, opening us before the Divine Power so that it can enter into our hearts. 

It awakens us at a soul and heart level, connecting us to Divine Forces of love and attraction. Hrim is the seed sound of Maha Maya, an aspect of the Goddess, She both blinds us in delusion (maya) and has the power to free us from it. This seed has a solar quality, but more of a dawn-like effect. It is charming and alluring, yet purifying. Through it we can master the illusion power of our own minds.

In Vedic terms Hrim is a mantra of the Sun in terms of illumination. It increases our aspiration and receptivity to Divine Light, wisdom and truth. It opens the lotus of the heart to the inner Sun of consciousness. It is a sound of the region of heaven or the consciousness space in which all the worlds exist.

Hrim is a specific mantra for the heart (hridaya in Sanskrit) on all levels, whether the spiritual heart, the heart chakra, the emotional heart or the heart as a physical organ. It energizes the heart, provides warmth, and allows for both deep feeling and deep thought.

In terms of Ayurveda, Hrim can be used to counter heart disease of all types, aiding in longevity and rejuvenation. More specifically, it helps promote the pranic and functional aspects of the heart with it the power of circulation of the blood, the lungs and the nervous system. It has generally Pitta (fiery) energy but some Vata (air) energy as well, stimulating the higher pranas and emotions. In terms of Vedic astrology, Hrim relates to the Sun, the planet of the heart, and helps promote solar energy, expression and charisma.

Hrim is usually a soft mantra but can also be harsh. As a soft mantra, it increases the finer energies of the heart. As a harsh mantra, it can be used to hypnotize or captivate, to dissolve or carry away.

I’ve worked with bija mantras to balance and activate chakras, but never heard of bija mantra to balance specific emotions. Sounds like a wonderful practice, I’ll give it a try!

 After Om and AimHrim (pronounced ‘hreem’) is probably the most commonly used bija mantra. It is composed of the sound-Ha, which indicates prana, space and light, with the sound-Ra, which indicates fire, light and dharma, and the sound-I, which indicates energy, focus and motivation.

     Hrim is the prime mantra of the Goddess in all of her three main powers of creation, preservation and destruction, and so is the main Shakti mantra, with a more specific application than Aim. It is said to be the Shakti bija and to be equivalent to Om for the Goddess. More specifically, it relates to Parvati or Shakti, the consort of Shiva, who is the destroyer/transformer among the trinity of deities.

It brings about joy, ecstasy and bliss. Hrim both purifies and exalts us in our inner quest, humbling us before the Divine power so that it can enter into our hearts.
