Being of Love
Chanting is an ancient practice in many religions. Chanting can benefit us in many ways, such as improving cognition and combating depression as well as anxiety. In this amazing meditation, Bradley has us chant, Aham-Prema, which means ‘I Am Divine Love’ in Sanskrit, 108 times.
Sitting with my legs crossed, my back supported and taking in some deep breaths, I had arrived. Following Bradley’s guidance, I took in a deep breath and began chanting, Aham-Prema twice. While chanting and vibrating my energy, I could feel layers, such as my insecurities and fears release and unravel much like new petals unraveling to expose a lotus flower in the morning sunlight. I remember having a somewhat uncomfortable feeling because by releasing my insecurities, my heart was exposed and vulnerable. But, it was in this uncomfortable feeling where I felt a transformation happen, as all of the sudden, my heart center was filled with this incredible light of love!
Once I repeated this beautiful chant 108 times, I began to shape my breath by holding it for a time at the top of my inhale and at the end of my exhale. In those moments, there was stillness and just the sound of my own heartbeat. I began to smile as I could feel my heartbeat pump this light of love throughout my entire body, leaving me feeling flourished. Indeed, by the end of this transformational meditation, I had blossomed into this Being of pure love! Thank you Bradley for this awesome experience! I will definitely listen often. Namaste 🙏🏻❤️☮️
Backstory: I was intrigued to listen to this meditation for two reasons: first with my friend Julie’s wonderful reflection and second with hearing chanting while watching a show last night. It was in those moments that I knew I would listen to this meditation this morning. Thank you, my friend! I am grateful!
