This mantra means literally “I am that”. It is supposed to bring us from normal awareness into expanded consciousness. It’s a oneness mantra, to remind us that we aren’t separated from the world around us. We are one with everything and holding this mantra in our minds during a meditation is supposed to remind us of that.

We’re going to sit comfortably, just like we did with our breathing meditation. Straighten your back and close your eyes.

We’re going to hold this mantra in our minds. When you breathe in, think “SO” and when you breathe out, think “HUM”.

Every time a thought arises in our minds, we’re going to bring our minds back to SO HUM.
