Yogapedia explains Aieem Namah

Aieem Namah can be repeated silently or audibly during meditation as a means of invoking creativity and knowledge. This mantra encourages consciousness to create and make decisions from a place of freedom, so it can be called upon any time one is feeling blocked or creatively stuck.

When repeating this mantra, a japa mala can be used to count the recitations. Generally, mantras are chanted 108 times as this is an auspicious number in yoga. By repeating Aieem Namah 108 times, its capacity to unlock creativity is increased.
