Corporate Chant Experience, Siddhi Shakti

Corporate Chant: Rock Your Wellness World!

It’s the next wave in wellness, following on from the physical based forms of yogāsna that have been so widely embraced by the West in recent decades. The benefits of a group facilitated sound immersion and chant experience are myriad, but here are a few of my personal favourites. These sessions are a fabulous means of supporting wellbeing initiatives in workplaces with many benefits:

Shift From Fight or Flight Mode

It’s an amazing practice to alter your brain chemistry and shift you from the sympathetic into the parasympathetic nervous system. Destress, release endorphins into your system and relax.

Experience Meditation and Healing

We use the sound experience to connect with more our the essence of our true nature. Science tells us that everything is vibration, including us, which we can affect and alter through the use of guided and intentional sound frequency.

Inclusive

Anyone can participate. If there is some reason you’re not comfortable making sound, you can simply sit and absorb the healing vibrations and use it as a means to experience a meditative state.

Community Building and Engagement

The energy and vibe is palpable as the group comes together to connect in the energy of the experience.

Fun

Yes, it actually is. Most people walk out feeling lighter and happier.

You’re Not Going To Crack A Sweat

No need for active wear, unless you’d really like to 😂.

 

Why not give it a try in your community or workplace? Get in touch if you’d like to rock your world with a guided yoga of sound and chant experience.

Feel Stuck? Chant to Clear Obstacles

Feeling Stuck In Life? 8 Tips & A Chant to Clear Blockages

Feeling blocked, stuck, generally flat, uninspired and maybe even a little depressed can be a overwhelming, bewildering and for those of us that are used to achieving, ticking boxes and accomplishing a lot, just downright not ok!

Sometimes we have decisions to make, we feel the circumstance we’re in is not right, but we just can’t see what the best way forward is. What are some ways to approach points of seeming impasse in life?

Here are some suggestions of things that can help lift your energy and vibration, to help you approach your circumstances in a different way:

  1. Open the Way for Flow and Spontaneity

    I try to take myself out of my regular routine and circumstances. I clear my calendar of my ‘shoulds’ and ‘to-dos’ and my tightly planned schedule, and allow myself to be open to more flow and spontaneity to see what other opportunities and perspectives might arise for adventure during my day.

  2. Do Something Fun & Different – Change Your Concept of Self

    Try and experience something fun, interesting or new that might open your mind and spirit to a new experience or a way of looking at things. Engaging in something fun, and perhaps even seemingly with no purpose, is a good way to allow creative expression and expansion to arise. It might be taking a class, reading a book of a genre you don’t normally explore, doodling, cooking, a walking tour. Be different. Break out of your mold and challenge your concept of yourself.

  3. Time in Nature – Defrag. Connect with the Stillness and Silence

    The energy of nature is essential to our sense of wellbeing, health and vitality. Time spent in stillness with trees, or absorbing the negative ions by the ocean is nurturing and uplifting to the spirit. It helps us defrag from our stressful modern lives and additions to always being ‘on’ and busy. Stopping, allowing the stillness and awareness to come to the fore, can provide valuable insights. Your emotions are your guidance system trying to give you messages.

  4. Exercise

    A great way to move suck energy in your system, get endorphins moving, and help you lift your spirits.

  5. Meditation

    Connecting with a place of stillness or calmness and peace when the mind is silent but alert. There are so many articles now about the benefits of a meditation practice and countless apps and classes one can access to help connect more with the stillness. At the very least, just stop, sit and notice your breathing for a few minutes. Imagine breathing oxygen in from the trees, imagine gifting CO2 back to the trees. Try doubling the length of your exhalation to help slow your breath. (e.g. breathe in for the count of 3, exhale for the count of 6).

  6. Energy Healing

    We are more than just our physical bodies. As multi-dimensional beings we have energy bodies – referred to chakras, aura and meridians in Eastern traditions. Just like the filter in your washing machine/dryer, these energy centres can become clogged with unprocessed and stuck energy and emotions. A session with a skilled energy practitioner can help shift blockages and open the way for more energy to enter your system, greater clarity and lightness.

  7. Mantra / Chant

    The repetition of sacred and powerful sounds, frequently in the ancient language of Sanskrit, can transform and adjust the vibration of your energy and being. When practiced consistently over time it can affect deep and profound change, bringing calmness to the mind, improving the functioning of the nervous system and response to stress, altering our consciousness. Personally I have found this to be one of the most deeply transformational practices. There are many mantras, invoked at different times for connecting with different energies. The chant, Oṁ Gaṁ Ganapataye Namaḥ, invokes the qualities of Hindu deity Ganesh or Ganesha – to clear the obstacles that might present themselves on our path. I play this in my home space, and chant this at specific times when I feel I need extra assistance to move through a particular challenge. You can listen to a sample of it on the Mantra album. Chant to clear blockages!

  8. Do What Brings You Joy

    This was the advice given to me by one considerably wiser than me. Follow the breadcrumb trail – just take the next step do things that bring you joy! You may be amazed on where all the small steps eventually lead you.

Sacred Sounds of Healing: Chanting Mantra

The repetition of sacred sounds is a pathway to awaken deeper soul connection. This practice is found in many of the great spiritual traditions. I found this beautiful quote that aptly describes this practice:

“Mantra is the prime tool for developing consciousness using the power of cosmic sound vibration, out of which consciousness creates and sustains both body and mind. Mantras are seed powers of consciousness, through which consciousness can renew itself, deepen and move to a higher level. The more consciousness we give to the mantra, the more energized the mantra becomes, and the more a force of integration and well-being.”

This has been one of the most transformational life-changing practices on my journey. I have been blessed by my spiritual teacher to have this awakened and enlivened in me. One of my joys is the chance to share this with others. I offer online coaching sessions – a great way to get started in your practice especially if this is new to you.

Please get in touch if the times offered don’t suit your schedule. You can also access some mantra recordings in the online shop to assist you with your practice. Great if you want to chant along, or play it as a space clearing/vibration setting sound track in your home or office.
