The number 40 is a sacred number many interesting transformations are reported to happened after a spiritually dedicated period of 40 days. Christ Jesus did his meditations and prayers in preparation for his Baptism and Ministry.
In case of working with chants, the energy and frequency of the words,- seed sounds, 40 days are a optimum period to have these new frequencies to start working and transforming the way your general template vibrates. In is majority, chants and mantras depend on the repetition of these sounds aligning them with the original sounds of creations, and the natural ebb and flow of the Cosmos.
Since the energies are ripe right now for rooting out old emotional wounds maybe we could begin a new mantra for the next 40 day period. What do you think butterfly?
I agree - and I also read somewhere yesterday, that the next 40 days or so are expected to have a lot of change associated with them. Being in a group with this kind of focus is going to be important, I feel. I am grateful to share in the energies. ~ Blessings!
i have read that people seeking spiritual transformation would draw a circle in the ground and stay within it for 40 days and 40 and nights, fasting and meditating. whether or not this is still practiced i do not know.
Interesting ... in Portugues, 'quarenta' = '40' ... '40 days for observation/Isolation' = 'quarentena' = 'quarantine'.
I am turning 40 next week...I would be very interested in a mantra to bring me closer to God................
Thank-you, RaK ♥
