Many chant Ohm, but few realize there is a specific tone associated with the Ohm mantra (Om, Aum). In Sound Healing, Ohm is an earth tone known for its ability to ground, soothe and balance. Its vibrational frequency is based on the elliptical orbit of the earth as it travels around the sun through four seasons.

To assist your voice in harmonizing with or resonating to the vibrational tone of Ohm, activate two Mid Ohm Tuning Forks as shown in the slide show, or activate an Ohm Crystal or Ohm Singing Bowl. Simply listening to the Ohm Tuning Forks and/or the Ohm Crystal Bowl creates a resonance with this beautiful and balancing Earth tone.

Chanting or toning while listening to sound healing instruments tuned to the sacred tone of Ohm helps us to connect to something greater than ourselves while energetically rooting us to the earth and attuning us to the beneficial forces of Nature.

Listen to audio samples of the following Sound Healing CDs. Each recording composed in the musical "key of Ohm" is well suited for listening to while practicing Yoga.

Many thanks to the Body of Santa Fe, its yoga instructors, students and staff!
