Change The Quality Of Your Thoughts With Mantras

Mantra is a Sanskrit term, with “man” meaning “mind” and “tra” meaning “release.” A mantra is a word or phrase that is often repeated and expressing a belief. A mantra is a tool for the mind as it works as an instrument with which you can learn to control your mind. Once you control your mind, you control your life. A mantra is not simply about something that you just say. It is actually something that you strive to become. Unless you become a key, the door of will not open up. Become the success, opportunity will find you. Become the light in the room, your life and the life of others around you will shine.

Think someone you know who is negative. They may grumble and tell you how difficult life is. Would you agree the reinforcement of these words and thoughts mean they literally ‘become’ negative energy?’ As you see negative thoughts, negative speak becomes negative energy which finds itself in the company of similar energy. It is also true for positive thought, positive speak becoming positive energy.

Next time when you begin to ponder or have negative thoughts just try to recite a positive mantra for a couple of minutes and observe what happens! While we focus wholeheartedly on our affirmations, we proclaim and produce our desires by stating exactly who or what we wish we become.

Here’s how to get started:

Get comfortable.
Find a quiet place where you can meditate without disruptions or distraction. Find a position you can hold for at least 10-15 minutes and set a timer.


Start with a few deep breaths.

Pay attention to your breathing without doing anything to try and modify it. Breath through your nose and simply focus on the sensation of the air entering your lungs and filling your body and the gentle slow release. Begin your mantra and let your mantra follow your breathing pattern, so it becomes like a gentle rhythm.


Wandering Thoughts.

Wandering thoughts will enter your mind. Don’t force them away, but gently acknowledge them and let them gently flow away and pick your mantra back up. As you close the meditation spend a few moments to check in on yourself. Notice how much more relaxed, positive and stronger you feel.

I asked a group of mothers at my meditation group about their favourite mantras. Here are some our favourites to get you started:

“I Am Enough.”
“I Am Ready To Heal.”
“I Am Open And Receptive To All Good.”
“Today Is All About Enjoyment.”
“Be The Light In A Room.”
“I Know What’s Best For Me.”
“All Is Well.”
“I attract love and honesty”
“I am worthy of all that is good”
“Keep moving, progress is my reward”

Its about the quality of your thoughts which change the quality of your life. Change your thoughts, change your life!
