Why suffer when you chant or affirm?-Wednesday Why?
Q by Sandhya Rani T D, Bangalore, Karnataka.
“It is said that some Shlokas you chant once there is a huge list of benefits including wishes get fulfilled and we are freed of bondage and attachments etc. All the fruits of these good deeds multiplied by 10000 times is got by chanting only once. Then why is that we continue to struggle and suffer in spite of doing all this chanting. I am sure our Rishis and Sages have done this for our people to benefit.”
Chanting praises of Lord, God or Goddesses is a practice. Many do this ritualistically, diligently, sincerely, partially, or forcefully, according to their choice. The words that are uttered during the chanting are equivalent to appreciation and gratitude to a higher force. The trust that you express through your chanting to the higher power ignites the faith and raises the security within. This gives you more confidence about your life experiences, handling your life situations and in asking about your pending desires.
Chanting is, therefore, a Vibration Raising Agent*. It raises the vibration and therefore brings you at the vibrational alignment with all the benefits and fulfillments that are made to be known to you.
Chanting like affirmation is one-time prescription. One time is all it takes.
Raising vibration per se comes from building momentum. As you stepwise or gradually get to the high vibration, it is here that your words which are your wishes start getting communicated to the higher source.
Higher force, Source, God, Universe are high energy and high vibrational entities. Communication with them is established better here. Receiving and asking is more clearly understood here. You get clear about what you really want to ask. You also get clear on what you are hearing as guidance. Manifestations take place on following those guidance. Being in this level of vibration is a boost in confidence and you, therefore, most definitely follow the guidance. And when you do follow the guidance the desires start to come true.
When the guidance is not clearly understood it seems as if it is not received. Sometimes you receive guidance but you don’t carry them out. In both situations, you don’t see your desires come true. This dwindles your connection and faith with the Source, the higher power. Suffering starts here. When you re establish your connection and faith with the higher power, through meditation, focussed chanting, and then by gathering the guidance. Regular practice of this reconnects you to Source and the suffering starts to diminish.
Chanting to convey your gratitude and/or desires is like affirming.
When you chant or affirm at one time and reach the high vibration and you communicate with what you believe in as higher power, what do you do next? After the communication of the desire do you keep the faith and trust that you don’t need to recheck? Or do you start with your regular life showing semi or some doubt? You start to re word your desires and thus change your request.
While you are chanting or affirming you are not saying anything other than what you wish to say. This is a reason why you require to chant or affirm several times.
Many times you are sad because you haven’t received what you want. So your chanting or affirmations are in sad or low vibrations. While saying it several times there are moments of your unawareness when you inadvertently and unknowingly slide into the high vibration. These moments of your unawareness are the loopholes. It is here that your words for desire slip into the high vibration and get clearly communicated to the higher power. This is an another important reason for chanting or affirming several times.
Chanting or affirming with faith is saying it clearly and still being flexible.
Chant or affirm once with faith and trust. That is all it takes. Follow the guidance in the form of follow up action. May all your dreams and desires come true!
