The Gayatri Mantra for Soul Alignment

The Gayatri mantra is a powerful Sanskrit mantra for aligning your body, mind and soul thus enabling you to fulfil your unique Soul’s mission here on Earth with relative ease and grace. According to Vedic cosmology there are seven luminous spheres of light or realms, each of which corresponds to one of our seven in body chakras. Each successive sphere is more spiritually advanced than the previous one. As we work with the energies stored in each of our chakras bringing all dysfunctional energies into alignment with Divine Love we will eventually merge with God and end the cycle of death and rebirth here on Earth.

The Gayatri mantra is a powerful way to bring your chakras into alignment thus enabling you to ascend to the higher spheres of spiritual light and ultimately attain enlightenment. As we intone the vibration of each sphere we bring that vibration into ourselves thus creating and eventually strengthening our connection to each of these realms. Prolonged use of the Gayatri mantra will eventually cause the physical body to accumulate so much spiritual light that it resists decay, even after death.

Here is a list of the spiritual realms encapsulated in the Gayatri mantra.

Om Bhuh First Chakra Earth plane
Om Bhuvaha Second Chakra Atmospheric plane
Om Swaha Third Chakra Solar region
Om Maha Fourth Chakra First spiritual region beyond the Sun: Heart vibration
Om Janaha Fifth Chakra Second spiritual region beyond the Sun: Power of the Divine spiritual word
Om Tapaha Sixth Chakra Third spiritual region beyond the Sun: Realm of the highest spiritual understanding whilst still identifying existent as an individual being
Om Satyam Seventh Chakra Abode of supreme Truth: Absorption into the Supreme
Om Tat Savitur Varenyam The realm of Truth beyond human comprehension
Bhargo Devasya Dhimahi Dhiyo Yonaha Prachodayat Where all the celestials of the all the spheres have received enlightenment, please enlighten our intellect

There are two versions of the Gayatri mantra, the long form and the short form, I personally use the long form as it has more resonance for me. Try both and see which feels better for you.

Oh Self-effulgent Light that has given birth to all the spheres of consciousness, who is worthy of worship and appears through the orbit of the Sun, illume our intellect. Oh Self-effulgent Light that has given birth to all the spheres of consciousness, who is worthy of worship and appears through the orbit of the Sun, illume our intellect.

I cannot advocate this mantra enough! One mala (108 repetitions) of the long form alone puts me on cloud nine, the more I repeat it the more blissful I feel and the more blessed I know I truly am. So please do yourself a favour and make this mantra a part of your daily routine and allow miracles to roll into your life.
