What Are the Benefits of Chanting?
Chanting is a psycho-spiritual and physical exercise with powerful benefits for your mental, physical and spiritual health. Studies show chanting can help to reduce stress, lower heart rate, improve cognition and soothe a range of chronic pains. This research even suggests ten minutes of daily chanting can help to reduce the symptoms of neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer's disease and dementia.
Chanting meditation can also help to heal a range of mental and emotional issues such as depression, stress, anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorder. By tapping into a different rhythm and connecting with the vibrations of the universe, many people claim to feel emboldened, empowered and deeply revived.
Perhaps the most important and thrilling aspect of chanting is its spiritual benefits. When we chant, we move into a new state of consciousness and connection with the universe, subtly transitioning from a place of fear and self-judgement towards peace and self-love. As a result, we can better connect with others, bond with the world around us, and experience life to its fullest.
What to Expect from a Chanting Session?
Chanting is a transformative experience. But too many people put off from giving it a go for fear they will embarrass themselves or seem silly in front of the other participants. We’re here to tell you to leave your anxiety at the door. Chanting sessions are fun, empowering and completely open to all people — no matter your background, ability or previous experience.
Most chanting classes take place in a group setting, although it's possible to arrange for private lessons if you feel they would be more beneficial for you. The session may begin with a short meditation where you silently repeat a mantra or intention in your head. Once you’ve reached a state of peace, calm and tranquillity, the chanting will begin.
The chant may be a mantra in Sanskrit or simply sounds you repeat. It doesn’t matter if you don’t understand the words or get the meaning of the phrasing. It’s the act of chanting and making a sound that helps you experience the benefits. The chanting may be a tune or simply at a vibrational frequency, but don’t worry about hitting the right key. Chanting is a deeply personal experience. The best way to embrace its power is by abandoning your preconceptions and insecurities and wholly giving yourself over to the sounds.
Regular practitioners claim to feel strong sensations of elation, empowerment and joy at the end of a session. And the best part? Once you’ve mastered the techniques of chanting, you can practice them in the comfort of your own home.
Connect with the universe with your mind and embrace the energies of the world with chanting.
