Feeling complete and joyful is important in your life as it creates an environment of a healthy mental and emotional state. There are so many ways you can do this and one of them which I particularly like and teach often in my classes and trainings is mantra. It’s a practice that can be done by anyone, whenever, wherever which makes it accessible to all. You’ll find enjoyment in the process!
What is mantra?
A mantra is the repetition of a word, words or sounds. Sometimes it’s as simple as a phrase in your own language repeated over and over or a more complicated sanskrit phrase or sound. We’ll delve into 3 of my favorite mantras below that will lead you to a practice you can maintain for when you need or some people start a sadhana journey which is your own practice over at least 21 days. Mantras have been used over thousands of years by spiritual guides. The rosary is even a form of mantra.
When should you repeat a mantra?
There is no perfect time to start a mantra practice, and really it should be done with a guide so that if you are doing one in sanskrit you get the right pronunciation and get the energetic effect it wants to deliver. Mantras are good for specific moments when you want to attract a certain energy to your life or create a shift. For example, I started a mantra to bring good energy for my baby’s birth coming soon.
Which mantras should I use?
Like I mentioned earlier, there are many types out there and the right one will fit what you want.
Mantra for Transformation:
Asato ma sadgamaya
Tamaso ma jyotir gamaya
Mrtyorma amritam gamaya
“Lead me from the untruth to truth, lead me from darkness to light, lead me from death to immortality.”
This is a mantra from the Upanishads circa 800 BCE which are spiritual teachings and ideas. To listen to it CLICK HERE.
Mantra for Positivity:
I am perfect. I am complete. I am everything I want to be and more.
I am beautiful. I am divine. I am powerful.
I am strong and flexible. I am a creator. I am a receiver.
I am perfect and complete.
Mantra for Peace:
Om Shanti Shanti Shanti
Sometimes the simplest forms of repetition can have the largest effect. This mantra means Om peace, peace, peace. Om represents sound primordial and is also spelled AUM to represent the 3 aspects of the self – body / mind / spirit.
