I've often been asked where the word Kshamming comes from. It's an adaptation of the word Ksham, thanks to the creative help of the wonderful Carolina Berstein. So what is Ksham? Each one of our chakras (subtle energies in our body) has a seed syllable - a sound which resonates at the rhythm of a particular part of our body, and opens it up. Ksham is the seed syllable for Ajna - our third eye - which when blocked, prevents us from seeing who we really are and what life is really about. Repeating the word Ksham helps unblock this chakra. The word itself - Ksham - means patience, peace, fortitude. When I discovered this I immediately connected with it. Together, for me, they form the essence of leading a healthy life: Patience - with other people and most importantly with ourselves Peace - with nature, with our bodies, with our minds Fortitude - making the most out of life, no matter what is is thrown at you The essence of Ksham both in its meaning and vibrational potential, lead us on the right path to obtaining health.
