Constance Demby – Sanctum Sanctuorum – Formless Presence

A chant is the iterative speaking or singing of words or sounds, often primarily on one or two main pitches called reciting tones

When you chant your mind releases the positive energy that decreases the negative thoughts or stress. Chanting mantras is an ancient practice that calms your mind and soul. Scientific studies have found that chanting mantras like Om for 10 minutes can decrease anxiety and depressive symptoms in the human body.

Religious chanting increases endogenous neural oscillations in the low frequency delta-band, especially in the posterior cingulate cortex (PCC). This brain region shows the largest decrease in centrality during religious chanting in a highly-trained meditator. Among a variety of religious activities, praying and chanting are quite common forms of practice in major religions including Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism, etc

Chanting promotes a feeling of connection to yourself and others. Chanting deepens connections with our source and with those around us. A powerful sense of oneness occurs during the process of singing together. Om. Arguably the most popular mantra in world, Om is the sound of the universe and the sound of creation. It’s also related to the crown chakra, and higher consciousness. “Om is everything and nothing, and meditating on it can help you to tap into your power as a creator,” 

 We rest in trustful faith that grows from our ongoing life in prayer.  As we make our faith filled journey, our God fills us with bright hope reaching to the highest horizons.  From our faith and hope, springs love forming us ever more to be like God is, pure Love for all that exists.  So we pray, Lord God.
