So Hum Meditation: The Quick Way to Pacify Negative Emotions

Apart from the physiological role of the liver in our body, it helps regulate all our pitta emotions such as contentment, anger, hate, envy, ambition, frustration, and impatience. When Pitta is aggravated, these emotions tend to intensify, but you can pacify Pitta by practising So Hum meditation.


  • An aggravated pitta causes us to experience emotions, like anger, hate, envy, and resentment more intensely

  • This negativity can imbalance the body and damage the liver.

  • One of the best ways to ease this negativity is through So Hum meditation.

The liver is a very important and complex organ that helps remove ama (toxins) from our blood, stores energy, and plays an important role in regulating our metabolism. Another one of the roles of the liver is regulating all out pitta emotions such as courage, enthusiasm, contentment, anger, hate, envy, ambition, frustration, and impatience.

When pitta is in excess in the liver, it causes us to experience all of these emotions more intensely, which damages the liver as well as our emotional health. Hence, it’s important to pacify these emotions so as to lighten the burden on the liver. One of the best ways to do this is through So Hum Meditation.

So Hum Meditation

A form of meditation that has long been practised in India, So Hum translates to “I am that pure awareness”, a mantra that helps calm the mind and emotions.

  • Start by sitting in Sukhasana with your legs crossed and your palms placed on your knees.

  • Inhaling, chant “So” either silently or out loud. When you do this your concentration should be on the front of your body starting from your stomach and ending at your brain.

  • When you have inhaled fully, hold the breath for a few counts.

  • Exhaling, chant “Hum”. At the exhale, take your focus downwards from the brain to the stomach.

  • When you have exhaled fully, pause for a moment before repeating.
