When you want something, whether it is something material, a relationship, a new job, or something else, you can use this sound in your meditation to help draw what you desire to you energetically.
Close your eyes and visualize what it is that you want.
See yourself having it in this now moment.
Amp up the visual with the feeling of having it.
What does it feel like to have what you want?
See yourself smiling.

As you continue visualizing yourself having what you want, begin to chant in your mind or out loud.
Shreem Shreem Shreem Shreem
Sending out that energy of prosperity, abundance and unlimited resources for YOU!
It is yours!
The Yamas are the 1st limb of the 8 limbs of yoga.
The Yamas are about right living.
They are ethical rules for us to practice on the mat with ourselves and off the mat with others.
A very simple way to look at them is as “The list of things NOT to do.”
There are 5 of these ethical rules:
- Ahimsa – Avoidance of Violence
- Satya – Truthfulness
- Asteya- Non-Stealing
- Brahmacharya – Non-Excess
- Aparigraha – Non-possessiveness
As a yogi, It’s not just about practicing the physical movements, it’s about living your yoga off the mat.
Patanjali is known as the father of modern yoga.
When we talk about modern yoga, we are going back 3200 years.
Even way back then there were already many different schools of yoga.
It is said that Patanjali assimilated all the different yogas and made them into the 8 limbs.
However, we do not really know his true identity, because back then sages did not take credit for their work.
They believed this sacred knowledge was being channeled through them by source and was not their own to take credit for.
Many historians believe that Patanjali was not one person, but
a combination of several teachers.
However, there are many who are adamant that Patanjali was a historical figure.
Regardless if he was one person or a combination of people, we are grateful the sacred knowledge of yoga continues to be passed down so that we can live a more peaceful and fulfilling life.
The 8 limbs of yoga by Patanjali is also known as the 8 fold path.
It’s a path for enlightenment that is also described as a ladder, and these are the steps that you must climb to reach the goal of enlightenment.
The 8 Limbs are:
- Yamas – The list of Don’ts
- Niyamas – The list of Do’s
- Asana – Posture
- Pranayama – Breath Control
- Pratyahara – Sense Withdrawal
- Dharana – Concentration
- Dhyana- Meditation
- Samadhi – Ecstasy / Bliss
These 8 limbs of yoga provide guidelines for a meaningful and purposeful life.
It serves as a prescription for moral and ethical conduct and at the same time it helps us to acknowledge our own spiritual aspects.
The seed sound Dum is associated with the Goddess Durga.
The protector, she rides a tiger and is brave and courageous.
She protects the innocent.
If you feel afraid all of a sudden, if you are in a situation that makes you feel uneasy, in your mind begin to chant Dum Dum Dum Dum.
Invoking that energy of protection.
This also gives your mind something to do.
The mind tends to go wild when there is an element of the unknown.
It comes up with all kinds of crazy scenarios that logically you know could never really happen but which come to your mind anyway, causing stress and anxiety.
When this happens, give your mind something positive to do. Begin to chant Dum Dum Dum and know that everything always works out.
