"There's no greater discovery, than stumbling upon the 

vast silence and peace, that lies within our self."

- Traysiah Spring.

What if...

...we all have a place at the core of our selves, that is always calm, quiet and peaceful. And at this quiet core, is an infinite source of wellbeing, clarity, joy and deep peace.


And what if, by simply closing our eyes and sitting quietly, we can explore this place within, and have direct access to this infinite resource of peace and wellbeing at our essence. Not only to have this experience during meditation, but to bring it back into our daily life experience.


Om Awaken Meditation is specifically created for this purpose. To effortlessly guide our mind past our busy thoughts, to discover and explore our own profound place of peace, that we all have waiting within our selves.


By doing so, we dip into our own infinite source of calm, clarity, contentment, harmony and joy, and naturally enliven these more in our daily life. 

"The true purpose of meditation isn't to get away from it all, but to get in touch with 'the all'. To find the source of all peace, joy, creativity and wholeness."

- Dr. Deepak Chopra

Beyond Our Thoughts

There are many types of meditation. Om Awaken Meditation is an effortless guided, mantra-based meditation technique, that originates from the ancient Vedic wisdom of India, just like Yoga. 


We don't have to try to "control" our thoughts or "empty our mind" with this meditation. Wise sages of India discovered long ago that using a pure vibrational sound, or mantra, (we call it a Centering Sound) for meditation, gives the mind a focus beyond our everyday constant thoughts, so we can effortlessly experience our own silence within.


Mantra means 'mind vehicle', and it works much like a submarine diving down into the ocean. It gently guides our mind below the busy surface waves of our endless thoughts, and descends to deeper and deeper levels of our own awareness, to the silent essence of our Self, that is always quiet, still and peaceful, just like at the bottom of the ocean.


Om Awaken Meditation is a guided version of this mantra meditation, that incorporates other powerful modalities to enhance the relaxation and depth of the meditation experience. Such as - affirmations, guided imagery and delta brain-wave vibrational sound.

“Silence is the great teacher. There is no substitute for the knowledge that comes from knowing how to contact your core of inner silence.”

- Dr. Deepak Chopra

Measurable Results

Meditation is a simple, yet profoundly effective way to bring more balance, upliftment and peace to all aspects of our life.


Science has confirmed, through years of research that meditation has measurable results. It has been shown to release stress, lower blood pressure, lower levels of inflammation. As well as, boost the immune system, slow down the aging process, improve sleep and uplift a sense of emotional wellbeing, among many other benefits. (See links to research articles below.)


There have been many studies done on people that have meditated for many years, that often display a deeper sense of calm, contentment, connectedness, compassion and peacefulness.


How can simply closing our eyes and being quiet for a while, have such a beneficial effect on our entire mind, body, emotional and spirit system?

Well, let's go back to looking at the peaceful place at the core our selves.


In recent years, science has discovered that we are pure energy at our essence. Our physical bodies, at the subatomic level, are actually tiny particles of energy moving around in vast empty space. And at this fundamental level, lies the greatest potential of power.


Other scientific studies, using EEG machines (electroencephalogram) have shown that our minds broadcast constant energetic frequencies that can be measured. Confirming that our minds are also fundamentally made of energy.


These discoveries are in-line with what ancient awakened sages have been passing down for thousands of years - that we are a pure energetic field of awareness at our core. And at this pure level of awareness, lies the greatest potential source of our own life-force, joy, creativity, wellbeing and peace.

"You find peace,

not by rearranging the circumstances of your life, but by realizing 

who you are, at the deepest level."

- Eckhart Tolle

We Are Energy

Because we are fundamentally energy at our core, meditation can have a powerful overall effect, because it works at this subtle energetic level.


EEG machines have consistently shown, that meditation changes our brain wave frequencies. As we meditate, we go from waking state brain waves - Beta - to the relaxed awareness state of brain waves - Alpha - where deep rejuvenation and stress release can take place.


And meditation can take us even deeper, to Theta and Delta brain wave states, where it has been shown to allow for even more profound rest and re-balancing, including releasing beneficial hormones and slowing the aging process.

How can simply closing our eyes and being quiet for a while, have such a beneficial effect on our entire mind, body, emotional and spirit system?


It is simple. We all have a place of pure silence and energy within our self, that is a natural source of peace, wellbeing, and so much more. And the most efficient way to access this inner subtle place, is by allowing our self to be still and inward for a while. Then we can effortlessly experience profound rejuvenation, reconnection and rebalancing in all aspects of our life.


OmAwaken Meditation, is an easy, yet powerful technique, to dive down and access this fundamental energetic level of our self, where we each have an infinite supply of joy, wellbeing, calm, clarity and deep peace.


We invite you to try it and explore it for yourself. See above for a recorded version of Om Awaken Meditation.


Please Enjoy.
