secret hidden powers meditation om
OM or AUM is the universal sound that contains all sounds in itself.It is not the result of the striking of two objects. It, rather emanates on its own. 
When we chant this universal charming Mantra OM, it provides many benefits Chanting of Om has several benefits which may be therapeutic, psychological and spiritual. If anybody doesn't know the meaning of OM or has any doubt on its meaning, then also he or she can avail the therapeutic benefits from it.
The vibration produced by chanting Om in the physical universe corresponds to the original vibration that first arose at the time of creation. The sound of Om is also called Pranava, meaning that it sustains life and runs through Prana or breath.
It has been scientifically proved that singing OM has invaluable vibratory effects in our bodies, helps to achieve slow, regular and complete exhalation, aids to control and relax our breathing system and has several soothing effects in our minds.
The sustained 'O' -formed by the 'AU'- sound makes all the bones of the thoracic cage vibrate, proving that vibration is communicated to the mass of air contained in our lungs and that the delicate membrane of alveolus in contact with this air vibrates too, this stimulates the pulmonary cells and enables an optimum gaseous exchange in our lungs. Furthermore, the latest research of many Western physiologists has also shown how this vibration produces very accentuated effects in the endocrine glands, to which Science is gradually attributing an increasing importance.
Besides, the vibrant internal massage resulting from the emission of the vowels 'au', acts especially in the abdominal organs and the organs of the thoracic cage, whilst the vibration of the 'mmm' in our skulls induces a vibration of the cranial nerves.

Scientific Research on Om
Many scientific studies have been conducted at different institutions regarding the effect of Om on the body and mind. The results have been published in various scientific journals. It has been observed that when Om is recited ten times in a low pitch, the internalized attention is produced. In simple words the attention turns inward. The number of attention fluctuations is reduced. The concentration is improved and it is well focused. Alpha rhythm is nicely synchronized and blood pressure as well as heart rate is reduced. Galvanic skin resistance is increased. In short, Om recitation is done in a lower pitch (voice) and prolonged manner, produces parasympathetic predominance and brings about calmness and peace. Typical sensations are blissful condition of mind. When Om is chanted in higher pitch, the heart rate and the muscular activity at the chin as well as the `cortical arousal` increase. EEG shows reduced alpha rhythm. In short, a sympathetic activity increases indicating a nervous excitation.
