|I am that I am
When Moses asked for his name, God’s answer to Moses, according to the famous lines of the Hebrew Torah, was ‘Ham-Sah’, or ‘I am that I am’.
I am full of light.
‘I am that I am’ reaffirms the conscious presence of God that is everything, where everything that is, is the infinite God.
While meditating, breathe in while saying ‘ham/’I am’. With that, you acknowledge your presence and everything that you are – your senses, your feelings, your experiences. Breathing out and continue saying ‘sa/that I am’ and with that you align everything that you are, with everything that there is. The lives of those before you, with their senses, feelings and experiences. The nature. And the universe.
Much like Lumen de Lumine, this chant will help you wrap your mind around three powerful concepts at the same time.
Past, present and future are one.
First of all, light is pure. Saying ‘I am full of light’ will help you clear all dark thoughts, all dark energies. All worries, all envy, all hatred, all guilt will go away.
Second, light is power. You will suddenly feel more confident, more able. You will feel braver. You can follow your heart, your dreams, your emotions. You will feel freedom.
Third, purity plus power equals love. You will feel more open to others, you will perceive others to be more open-hearted towards you.
Everything is here to pass. It is a powerful mantra to free you from the burdens of the past and to liberate you from the ambitions of the future.
I feel. I exist.
While chanting the mantra, imagine the world as a whole. As one moment. From the big bang, to forming our galaxy, the Earth, your genes, your body. Imagine yourself as a child and the pathways and decisions that brought you to where you are today.
Imagine how all your decisions could have created all the different versions of you. Imagine holding your hands with another you and another you, all living in harmony.
This chant will bring your mind and your body together. Your emotional self and your sensual self will become one.
Love is in everything. Love is everything.
Breathe in. Imagine yourself, sitting on the floor, and gradually expand your vision to outside of your house, up through the clouds, seeing the Earth from above. Continue expanding until you see the galaxy, swirling around slowly. Now gradually go back to yourself.
Now breathe out and breathe in again. Touch your forehead, your arms, your belly, your legs and your toes. Gradually go back to your forehead. Imagine your blood vessels, your nervous system, your heart. Your cells.
You have now imagine everything that is bigger than you. And everything that is smaller. What you can manage, and what you are in awe of. Acknowledge you exist. Acknowledge where you are.
Love is a powerful healer. Imagine love as something you can see. It could be light, it could be color, it could be a glow, or a mist or a cloud.
I belong. I have faith.
Imagine objects and people from your everyday life – your way to work, your friends in the office, your local store, your objects at home.
Plant love around everything. Your new mantra will help you see the world in a different light. You will feel more at ease in your surroundings, if you try to see purity, light and beauty everywhere around you.
In the grand scale of the Cosmos you are just a spec. All your actions, your feelings, your doubts and your stressors are… insignificant. You are but a small particles in this universe.
You belong. You are a part of a beautiful, harmonic world. You are part of a bigger plan.
But you belong. With your feelings, you connect to others. With the mere matter that comprises your body, you are the same as the Universe. The atoms – the protons and the electrons that comprise your body are the same protons and electrons that the stars are made of.
When breathing in think, ‘I am fulfilled,’ and when exhaling think, ‘I am fearless.’
