Many ancient cultures have given a lot of importance to the ‘power of three’. Many argue that creation itself is sustaining on this power of three. Harnessing this power in your daily life can energize and change your physical and emotional states.
In the first three numbers, all of the others are synthesized. From the union of oneness and duality (which is its reflection), that is, from triad, proceed all of the other numbers, and from this primordial triangle all figures derive.
There are three great divisions completing time--past, present, and future.
There are also three kingdoms embrace our ideas of matter--mineral, vegetable, and animal.
Plato's "world soul" emphasized three as a critical part of a number set in musical mathematics and creative science.
Three denotes divine perfection. The ancient texts indicate that the emergence of sound marked the beginning of physical Creation. And the first sound was OM (AUM). Divided into three sounds but four parts (A, U, M, and silence) it represents the journey of the spirit. Before sound, i.e., Creation, there was eternal silence, or absolute stillness. It was from here that the journey of an individual began. Sound has a deep and profound effect on the physical body of a being, whether we are able to immediately feel the effect or not depends on the kind of sound one interacts with. Grosser and heavier sounds affect the physical body, the grossest layer of a being, and have a short lived effect, while subtler sounds touch the lighter layers and the effect lasts for a longer time.
Sit in a comfortable position with your eyes closed and back straight. Take a few deep breaths and begin chanting A-U-M followed by silence. As you chant ‘A’, your awareness moves up your body till the naval; as the awareness rises from the naval till the shoulders you chant ‘U’; the awareness further rises from the pit of the throat with the chant of ‘M’, finally ending in silence.
Repeat the above as many times as you can. When you open your eyes look at the centre of your palms, then your entire body, then anywhere else. A word of caution here, do not suddenly get up after the practice and always do it under the guidance of your Guru, whomever that may be.
Practice of this will open the subtler dimensions while giving you a healthy body, beautiful glow and peace.
