05 Jun A Mantra With Meaning
A mantra is a word or set of words that you say to yourself silently, in order to guide your mind during meditation. It can provide an anchor, or attract that which is spoken to your life. It’s classically a Sanskrit word, and some say a guru needs to “unlock” a mantra for it to work. Others say if you don’t use the exact, correct pronunciation and tone, the mantra is useless.
I say, to heck with that! Whatever you focus your mind and intention on can create a change in your life. Use English, or whatever your native tongue is. Create a mantra with meaning, by choosing a word or phrase that has value to YOU. Here are some examples based on what you’d like to bring more of into your life. Be sure to phrase it in the positive, rather than the negative. For example,instead of saying “I don’t want to be tired.” Say, “Vibrant Energy” over and over throughout your meditation.
If you’d like to bring more love into your life: “Loving, open heart.”
If you want more focus: “I am focused and aware.”
If you want patience: “I am calm and can wait to respond.”
If you feel flighty and unstable: “Grounded, stable.”
If you want more joy in your life: “Joyful, Free.”
You get the picture. Your mantra can change day to day, depending on what you need to focus on. Give yourself at least 5-10 minutes to meditate with the mantra you’ve selected. Enjoy!
