Monthly Meditation: The Power of Words and Intentions

Monthly Meditation: The Power of Words and Intentions

A Meditation to Connect You with Your True Identity

Manuela Herreros, Wellness Director and yoga teacher at The Place, invites you to connect more deeply with the power of words and intentions.

Through Kundalini Yoga and meditation you can look into your life, follow your intuition and create an intention of what you want to create or manifest in this life. You have the power to connect with what is deep inside of you.

You have the power within to uncover your true identity.


The Fifth Chakra

The ability to say words comes from our throat chakra (the fifth chakra) and represents the power of projection. 

We use words to create realities. Words go from formlessness (an intention) to form; by just saying a word we give shape to an idea, we plant the seeds of a future manifestation. Words have immense power, as do our intentions.

They help us to follow a path and stay true to ourselves, but when we are disconnected from the words we speak, we can cause harm to ourselves and to others. Then, we are lost.

The throat chakra, located in the throat area, is associated with communication, creativity and our ability to listen deeply to ourselves and to others. When the throat chakra is open and balanced it is easier to be truthful to ourselves and to those around us.

To explore these ideas further, Manuela invites you to say this mantra for just a few minutes each morning:

Sat Naam Sat Naam Sat Naam Sat Naam Sat Naam Sat Naam Wahay Guroo

Bring the sounds up from your navel point, through the heart to the throat. Let the sound strike the roof of the mouth so it can stimulate the hypothalamus in the brain.

Find Your True Identity

Sat Naam means ‘true identity’. Wahay Guroo (Wahe Guru) is the most powerful and pure untranslatable word phrase in the world. Its nearest meaning refers to the creator, god, or supreme being. In this mantra, it is a trigger for one’s destiny.

The Sat Naam mantra resonates with the fifth (throat) chakra. Chanting opens the throat and enables us to form words.

If we master our words we will master the skill to initiate action that comes from the soul.

Intention, Wisdom and Destiny

The Sat Naam mantra is known in Kundalini yoga as a seed mantra – it is based on the idea that within the seed is contained all the knowledge of a mature tree. This is a mantra that can unlock wisdom – the wisdom we already have inside.

Manuela says the more we start looking inside, the easier it is to connect with what we want and the path we want to follow.

We are creative beings. When we say words they manifest in the future into something. Bring awareness to the words you are saying, your tone, and your intention to the outside world.

You have the power to choose your own words and when you can speak truthfully from your own soul, you can be truly present in defining your destiny.

As we come to the end of the year, Manuela invites you to recite the mantra and to invite the truth within yourself to be projected outside. Connect with your intentions. Let your words be communicated.

Take time to reflect and connect with your authentic self.
