Introducing Mantra Mondays!

Hi Stars!

With yoga and meditation practices becoming more popular around the world, terms such as mantra may or may not be new to you. In this post, I would like to simplify the definition of mantra.

“A tool of the mind that has a spiritual effect on a person’s will or emotional state of being.”

Mantra: (Noun) a word, statement or sound repeated in meditation or daily life; Positive self-talk; an intention. It is something that you strive to become.

The main idea is that truth with intention has power (because it does!). When you speak something that is true, it helps you bring that truth into reality. Many self-help books and coaches will suggest the repetition of mantras. For example, an anxious person might repeat something like “I am calm and at peace.” By repeating this statement, the mind convinces itself to accept the idea, which leads to change.

There are different types of mantras. Every mantra initiates a certain type of energy. Once you start using mantras, they will become a part of your daily life and will set a certain ambiance/tone for you. Note: A mantra can be religious, but it is not specific to any one religion.

Other notes about Mantras:
-The literal Chinese translation of the word mantra is “true words.”
-Originally from Hinduism and Buddhism.
-Has roots in Sanskrit (ancient, mathematical, and sacred language).

Overall, the mantra is intended to bring you back to simplicity. We live in a complex world where it’s easy to get lost in busyness. Mantras help you focus on the simple things that inspire you and truly make you happy.

Mantras are medicine for the soul

{Hence, an important concept of SOULance}.

  1. In the last year, I have really tried to begin positive mediation practices. Establishing a mantra is something that I have struggled with because my thougths seem to be too scattered to choose just one. I always feel like the mantra has to be some huge and profound statement, but in our crazy lives, “I am calm and at peace,” IS a pretty powerful proclamation. Thank you.

    1. So glad you enjoyed the article 🙂You can keep that mantra for as long as you need to and it can be as simple as you would like. Some keep 1 mantra for an entire year (or more) and others do a mantra of the day, do what is best and most comfortable for you ❤️
