You should chant the mantra Aum as your awareness descends through the awarohan passage. The sound must be loud and explosive as it starts from bindu. Then as your awareness moves through the chakras in the spine the sound should become a humming sound. Try to feel the sound piercing the chakras in turn. In fact, you should identify the sound with the flow of prana. The sound should end when your awareness reaches the mooladhara chakra.
We can summarize the process as follows: bindu to ajna - explosive sound; ajna to mooladhara - a humming sound concentrated in the spine.
The sound of Aum should be loud and penetrating; in this way it has the greatest power to sensitize the chakras. However, it is not always possible to make a lot of noise, especially if it is early in the morning, as you may disturb other people living in your house. Under these circumstances you can chant Aum as a loud whisper.
