Is it ok if I choose to chant TOGETHER DIVINE or other switch words or mantra, or is it required I chant any word that crosses my path thrown at me.
Chant any word that crosses my path and thrown at me.
I have been doing this on 2/3 words last week and finding a lot of clarity emerging!! It is amazing!!
And more funnily it reminded me of something similar I used to do when I was a student/teen that I had completely forgotten. I wondered when and why I stopped it and am now thinking about how to revive it.
Thank you for your guidance and wisdom.
Let me tell you a story about Swami Ram Das.
As a person who has given up worldly life, he is supposed to beg for food.
One day, while he was standing in front of a door waiting for somebody to give food, an angry lady threw a dirty cloth at him.
He accepted it gracefully, went home and washed it clean.
Then he tore the clothes and made them as threads to burn a lamp.
Keeping the lady in mind, he then prayed, “Oh Lord, I saw the unhappiness in lady’s angry face. I saw her poverty as she could give me only a dirty cloth. Please alleviate her unhappiness and poverty and make her prosperous”.
What a positive frame of mind the Sage Ram Das had!!!
Like him, whatever is thrown at us, should be used to convert the darkness in our heart with light and love.

I am happy that you have regained your faith in God. God is working and helping us all through words, flowers, nature, men and animals. What is the connection between me and you? It is the web of god which unites us one and all in the world.
Shivohum means, ‘I am Siva’. I am that.
Our Decision Making Process is Poor
Whenever we need to take a decision, we have to know the positive side or negative side of it. Our decisions are imperfect, any decision for that matter, because we are limited by our own perception.
We know only two sides of the coin – right or wrong, positive or negative, and good or bad. However, a decision has to be tuned with the divine will. Unfortunately, we take our decisions unconsciously. But, we are lucky enough to take the right decisions sometimes.
Tuning with the Divine Will
Is there anything that will tune me to the divine will and give me the power of discrimination (Vivekam)? Is there a way, through which I can take decisions as per divine will or plan. The Shivohum mantra can help you in this regard.
Shiva means Mangalam. The one word that produces happiness in you is Shiva. By repeating that one can be happy, for the word Shiva produces happiness. How? Then, I become Shiva or an embodiment of Shiva.
Thinking like Divine
In the normal life, think, “Why not I become like divine? Why not I think like a divine?” If you think like divine, your life would be alright.
The Shivohum will keep you align with divinity.
Benefits of chanting Shivohum
The mantra gives you the state of happiness, so whatever you do will produce happiness.
HUM activates the throat chakra and thyroid. Our throat chakra can be energised and balanced.
HUM activates thyroid and purifies it, which is responsible for detoxification of the body. If any mental impurities are there, Hum will release it. Then you take the decision.
Shivohum activates the third eye chakra or higher perception. It’s the third eye, which is responsible for wisdom. However, we can’t directly activate our third eye. We have to release the impurities first.
Chanting of this mantra achieves both.
