The Om Project – Kids Activity
Colour your own Om symbol and keep it as a reminder of the mystery and magic of this secret and powerful sound.
The history of the sound ‘Om’ and it’s particular symbol date back thousands of years. In cultures of India and Asia, the sound ‘Om’ appeared in the minds of saints and mystics and they began performing it and teaching it to other people. They used this sound to enhance creativity, happy thoughts and feelings and keep their bodies healthy.
You can practice it too, by sitting up straight closing your eyes take a calm breath in and as you breathe out to make the deep low sound ‘Om’ ,(Auuooommmmm).
Do each Om until all the air has escaped your body and then take another calm breath and repeat the same thing at least three times.
