2.Regarding mystics about AUM, when you pronounce AAAUUUMMM continuously ,you can very well feel the upward surge of energy as explained in one of my earlier blogs.(AumKar Meditation).That’s probably because when you chant AUM, you are in sync with the cosmic sound which anyways wants your energy to move upwards (towards Sahasrara Chakra.)
3.Besides, even if you have been chanting OM till date , there are absolutely no issues since as far as cosmos is concerned,it really doesn’t matter whether you have been chanting Om or Aum because rather than listening to what you are saying , cosmos wants you to listen to its own sound (which will be audible as a humming sound as you progress on this path ,which is really soothing and gets a little loud at times.)
But I would strongly suggest, don’t force your ears in listening to humming sound etc.Just Meditate, let things happen on their own and not the otherwise.
On a concluding note , to the best of my knowledge & experience, I would suggest you to chant AAAUUUMMM for few minutes if you wish to but eventually, be calm,just sit & do nothing..Because,believe me, Silence & not sound is the key.Find yourself in Emptiness (Shunya) and enjoy the cosmic sound that follows.
Namaste & take care ! Happy Meditation !!
