All things have some vibrational energy. The energy is not only confined to plants but it is also found in human beings. Each item has its own peculiar vibrational energy. The vibrational energy is not only found in objects but also in feelings like joy, peace and love. Positive emotions create a balanced psyche which is good for the person. Any negative emotion disrupts this balance and thrusts the person into a state of limbo and discomfort. Many healing mantras are based on critical assessments on what kind of sound needs to be reintroduced back into the area so as to re-establish balance and comfort once again.
Nature is laden with amazing sounds like the crashing waves to the whistling of the wind through the leaves. Since most people spend time away from nature then they miss out on these vibrations that are created by nature. When one spends some time in nature, being keen to these sounds then their body and the sounds of nature create a harmony.
The use of sound for healing is a tradition that has been used for ages by people all over the world. The complexity of the use of sound for healing is what at times distinguishes the people that practice this art. Indians have perfected this art and even have a name for it.
Mantras are basically sounds that have been shown to have a certain impact. These sounds can either be chanted silently or out aloud for the effects to take place. Mantras have various effects ranging from transformation to healing. The use of mantras is a broad subject that caters to almost every need. Some of the needs that can be healed by using mantras are curing snake bites or even performing spiritual re-awakenings.
An example of a healing mantra is Japa. Japa is a mantra that includes the use of all kinds of mantras. It is associated with uttering a certain number of repetitions of the mantra for it to take effect.
To guide the person on how many times the mantra has be recited Japa comes with a string of beads. In most cases the string of beads has 108 beads that show where the person should begin the mantra and after how long they should stop repeating the mantra. In certain cases a shorter string of beads is used together with the main string of beads. A little known fact is that using this string of beads takes time and a lot of commitment. The number of days that one will need to utter the mantra daily depends on the heaviness of the issue they have and some can be using Japa for as long as a whole month.
