Japa Yoga is the technique of repeating the sacred sound of "AH" each morning and "OM" each evening while holding the vision of what you wish to create and being grateful. "AH" is the sound of opening, allowing the space for whatever needs to come in to come in. It's the sound associated with joy. "OM" is the releasing of all desires and is the sound of serenity.
Sit in a quiet place -- find a place where you won't be uncomfortable making sound -- and breathe deeply through the nose.
Again sit in a quiet place. Breathe deeply through your nose several times, releasing through the mouth. Repeat the sound of "OM" while focusing on everything you're grateful for in your life -- your health, your body, your relationships, and so on. Keep focused on gratitude. Like the morning meditation, it should be repeated for several times, preferably divisible by three. Feel the serenity and peace in your body as you drift off to sleep.
