Create more bliss in your life
Bliss is such a great word. Whenever I say it, I can not help it, but I have to smile. Just repeating the word “bliss” makes me feel joyful. I feel an energy shift in my body that makes me remember things I love and enjoy doing.
Join me now, repeat the word bliss three times.
How does it feel in your body?
A simple definition of bliss is a great joy. We all have things in our lives that make us feel joyful. It is essential for your well being to connect with joy every day. Consider practicing daily activities that you do just for the fun and the enjoyment you find in them.
If you are looking for a new activity to enhance bliss, I recommend you to do chanting. The practice of chanting is merely repeating a phrase, sentence, or a sound. While you chant, you keep vocally repeating the words or sounds while you are seated, lying down, or moving.
You can use an inspiring quote, a spiritual verse, a relaxing vowel sound, a prayer, or a word that brings a sense bliss, calm, or joy. There now rules on what you can say while you chant. Just pick something that connects with you.
One common chanting practice is using the sound Aum. There are many variations of the sound—for example, Hum, Aam, Om. The significant soothing effect of repeating Aum comes to the vibrations that it creates in your throat and on your body.
You can start your chanting practice by repeating Aum 24 times, three times a day, for 21 days. Consider practicing in a quiet space at home, seated on a comfy chair, or lying down on the floor. You can also do it while going for a walk while doing a house chore or having your shower.
Today, set a powerful intention to have more bliss in your life.
