This article will give you some helpful advice how to achieve higher levels of focus and relaxation via using meditation mantras and will offer you several other helpful techniques.

WHAT IS A MEDITATION MANTRA

Meditation could have various purposes. Some people meditate to achieve inner peace, others – to accomplish higher focus, or for self-motivation. There are guided meditation techniques aimed at assisting the participant to sleep better, to lose weight, to quit drinking…

A mantra is supposed to help you clear your consciousness out of the noise, so you can make room for one idea you want to concentrate on. A mantra is an idea, a philosophy or a world overview, concentrated in a sentence, a phrase or even one word.

Repeating your mantra in your mind will immerse you completely in an idea and will bring you closer to your goal.

THE 10 BEST MEDITATION MANTRAS EVER

The purpose of using the mantra is to shut out the outside world. You need to forget the thoughts that are cluttering your mind during your everyday life and concentrate on the thought that will help you grow.

The first step towards this is to choose your mantra. Select a chant that speaks to you. Even if what originally attracts you is the music of it, make sure you have an overall understanding of its meaning.

Behind every mantra stands an idea, an understanding of life, of you, of the universe. Only when you know your mantra, you can immerse completely in the meditation process.

If you are having difficulties shutting out, occupy more of your senses in it. Get your hands on a good quality notebook and write your mantra over and over again. Be conscious of your handwriting. Each copy must resemble the others.

Gradually, you can go to chanting or whispering. If it works for you, you can continue towards silent repetition.

1. Aum or the Om

Pronounced ‘Ohm’. The primal cry. It means ‘It Is, Will Be or To Become’. It is the most universal mantra. For its simplicity and specific sound, it is considered to be the sound of the universe. It represents the original vibration, the cycle of life – the birth and death. Reincarnation.

Research tells us there could be a scientific reason behind the popularity of Aum. Chanting Aum is thought to match the natural frequency of the universe – 432 Hertz, thereby bringing us to harmonically resonate with the cosmos. In contrast, most modern music is thought to be consistent with the 440 Hertz frequency.

Aligning yourself with the lower frequency will calm you down and ease you into your meditation process.

2. Om Namah Shivaya

The translation is ‘I bow to Shiva’. Shiva is the supreme God of transformation who represents the highest self.’ It is one of the most popular Hindu mantras. It is called the Shiva Panchakshara or simply Panchakshara. The five syllable mantra. (‘Om’ is excluded.)

The mantra originates in the Krishna Yajurveda, where it appears several times without its first syllable.

The five syllables – ‘’Na’ ‘Ma’ ‘Si’ ‘Va’ and ‘Ya’ are thought to represent five elements of the world – ‘Na’ represents ‘earth’. ‘Ma’ represents ‘water’. ‘Si’ represents ‘fire’. Va represents the ‘Pranic air’ and the ‘Ya sound represents the sky or ether.

‘Om Namah Shivaya’ is considered to bring you closer to the deity of Shiva, and everything in nature it represents.

3. Hare Krishna

The entirety of the mantra goes ‘Hare Krishna Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna Hare Hare, Hare Rama Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare’ and it is simply the repetition of the many names of Krishna. It was popularized by the Hare Krishna movement.

The Hare Krishna movement – the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) – unites various centers, temples, communities, meeting groups and others, dedicated to the tradition of the tradition within the Vedic or Hindu culture.

The ISKCON movement believe that the name of God in known to the people in many variations, including Allah, Jehovah, Yahweh, Rama. They have popularized the maha-mantra to acknowledge the unity of faith.

4. I am that I am

When Moses asked for his name, God’s answer to Moses, according to the famous lines of the Hebrew Torah, was ‘Ham-Sah’, or ‘I am that I am’.

‘I am that I am’ reaffirms the conscious presence of God that is everything, where everything that is, is the infinite God.

While meditating, breathe in while saying ‘ham’. With that, you acknowledge your presence and everything that you are – your senses, your feelings, your experiences. Breathing out and continue saying ‘sa’ and with that you align everything that you are, with everything that there is. The lives of those before you, with their senses, feelings and experiences. The nature. And the universe.

5. Aham-Prema

The mantra is pronounced as ‘Aah-ham-pree-mah’. It translates to ‘I am Divine Love’.

Chanting this mantra, you are aligning yourself with divine love – everything that unconditional love is and can be for you. Acceptance, purity, compliance, admiration, adoration, appreciation, gratitude, forgiveness, affection, emotion, harmony.

‘Aham Prema’ is a simple mantra to be repeated in a chant 108 times. It brings together mind, body, and soul in peace. It will help you leave your past behind. It will clear your mind from distraction and will give you purpose. ‘Aham Prema’ will energize you and give you a fresh start.

6. Ho’oponopono

It is preferred by people who find themselves to be overwhelmed by feelings of anger, shame, who have issues cause by complex interpersonal relationships, or find themselves to be unable to express their feelings towards their loved ones. People who feel they have been wronged and find it difficult to achieve forgiveness themselves.

Saying ‘I love you’ opens your heart. Saying ‘I’m sorry’ keeps you humble. Saying ‘Please forgive me’ acknowledges your imperfections and saying ‘thank you’ expresses your gratitude. The mantra will heal your karmic imprint and give you a chance for a fresh start.

7. Om Mani Padme Hum

The translation of the mantra would be ‘Hail the Jewel in the Lotus’. It is a mantra, used by Tibetan Buddhists to achieve the ultimate state of compassion, also known as Chenrezig.

The mantra can be divided seen as a whole of all of its components.

‘Om’ is the primal sound of the universe. It brings you harmony and aligns you with the energy of the cosmos. ‘Ma’ – strips you down from your needs. It takes you away from the world of the physical and it guides you towards the spiritual. ‘Ni’ – Releases you from passion and desire. It leaves you peaceful and content. ‘Pad’ – frees you from ignorance and prejudice. You are left with love and acceptance. ‘Me’ – releases you from possessiveness. You are ready accept the world as it is. ‘Hum’ – liberates you from hatred.

8. Buddho

A mantra, associated with the Mahayana or Vajrayana Buddhism, and a significant part of the Theravada tradition. Repeating Buddha’s name or other phrases in Pali is considered to be assisting the participant towards developing loving kindness.

‘Buddho’ comes to signify His title, rather than his name. By repeating the mantra, you are calling for the enlightened teacher to bring you peace, harmony between yourself and the world, harmony between the sensual and the spiritual world.

Sit comfortably on the ground and take several deep breaths before you begin. Next, breathing in, say a long ‘Bud-’, breathing out, continue ‘-dho’.

The mantra will bring you clarity and brightness at the end of your session.

9. Lumen de Lumine

Lumen De Lumine is the chant of the light. It helps you feel open to the world. It will immerse the participant in light. If your life is overpowered by darkness, Lumen De Lumine clears your aura and fills you in with brightness and energy. You will feel more awake and revitalized. It is the perfect balance between power and peace.

The mantra will give you the confidence you are protected from bad energies. You will feel strong, untouchable, invincible, like the sun.

Lumen De Lumine can touch anyone. You do not need to close yourself in your mind with this chant. Think of your beloved to send them positive energy and thoughts.

10. Sat, Chit, Ananda

Also known as Satchitananda, a compound Sanskrit word comprised of the three words ‘sat’, ‘cit’ and ‘ananda’.

Sat means ‘existence, being present, being alive, surviving, being true, being good, being right, natural, knowledgeable, honest’

Chit means ‘sense, feel, recognize, comprehend, acknowledge, to think about something, to form an idea, to be conscious, to think, to consider’

Ananda means ‘joy, bliss, pleasure, enjoyment, happiness, pure elation’

5 PERSONAL MANTRAS

A mantra will only be helpful to you if you fully believe the idea behind it. If you are a beginner in meditation and you are not too familiar with the ancient traditions it is rooted in, it might be helpful to you to create your own chant. Here are some tips:

  • Try this: take a piece of paper and write down the words/ideas you want to immerse yourself in. Just brainstorm. Now, if you can create a sentence or two out of the chaos, use those. If not, just repeat the words. However, keep the mantra short. Up to 10-15 words.
  • Make sure you start with a word that means something to you. Start with the word that signifies your goal: ‘Peace.’, ‘Joy.’, ‘Love.’, ‘Faith.’ Or ‘Harmony.’
  • The mantra must have a direction, but it should stay in the positive: For example, instead of saying ‘I am not worried,’ say ‘I am peaceful’.
  • Repetition is key. For beginners, it could feel strange at first. Just relax and start the process. You can start with as little as 20 repeats. However, since the ultimate goal of a mantra is to block the world outside, the more you repeat and concentrate on the mantra the further you will dive inside your consciousness. Don’t count. Aim for a certain amount of time in repetition instead of a certain amount of repetitions.

And here are some suggestions:

I am full of light.

Much like Lumen de Lumine, this chant will help you wrap your mind around three powerful concepts at the same time.

First of all, light is pure. Saying ‘I am full of light’ will help you clear all dark thoughts, all dark energies. All worries, all envy, all hatred, all guilt will go away.

Second, light is power. You will suddenly feel more confident, more able. You will feel braver. You can follow your heart, your dreams, your emotions. You will feel freedom.

Third, purity plus power equals love. You will feel more open to others, you will perceive others to be more open-hearted towards you.

Past, present and future are one.

Everything is here to pass. It is a powerful mantra to free you from the burdens of the past and to liberate you from the ambitions of the future.

While chanting the mantra, imagine the world as a whole. As one moment. From the big bang, to forming our galaxy, the Earth, your genes, your body. Imagine yourself as a child and the pathways and decisions that brought you to where you are today.

Imagine how all your decisions could have created all the different versions of you. Imagine holding your hands with another you and another you, all living in harmony.

I feel. I exist.

This chant will bring your mind and your body together. Your emotional self and your sensual self will become one.

Breathe in. Imagine yourself, sitting on the floor, and gradually expand your vision to outside of your house, up through the clouds, seeing the Earth from above. Continue expanding until you see the galaxy, swirling around slowly. Now gradually go back to yourself.

Now breathe out and breathe in again. Touch your forehead, your arms, your belly, your legs and your toes. Gradually go back to your forehead. Imagine your blood vessels, your nervous system, your heart. Your cells.

You have now imagine everything that is bigger than you. And everything that is smaller. What you can manage, and what you are in awe of. Acknowledge you exist. Acknowledge where you are.

Love is in everything. Love is everything.

Love is a powerful healer. Imagine love as something you can see. It could be light, it could be color, it could be a glow, or a mist or a cloud.

Imagine objects and people from your everyday life – your way to work, your friends in the office, your local store, your objects at home.

Plant love around everything. Your new mantra will help you see the world in a different light. You will feel more at ease in your surroundings, if you try to see purity, light and beauty everywhere around you.

I belong. I have faith.

In the grand scale of the Cosmos you are just a spec. All your actions, your feelings, your doubts and your stressors are… insignificant. You are but a small particles in this universe.

But you belong. With your feelings, you connect to others. With the mere matter that comprises your body, you are the same as the Universe. The atoms – the protons and the electrons that comprise your body are the same protons and electrons that the stars are made of.

You belong. You are a part of a beautiful, harmonic world. You are part of a bigger plan.

MORE ADVICE FOR SUCCESSFUL MEDITATION

Meditation is rooted in tradition – centuries of tradition. Years and years of people practicing the same ritual, thereby connecting their consciousness in a never-ending chain of existence.

But what is most important is that it works.

Don’t be intimidated by meditation.

There is a culture, there is a science, but before all else, there is a very simple ritual. You don’t need to be a monk, you don’t need to grow a beard or committing to a vow of silence.

Here is some helpful advice how to improve your state of consciousness during meditation:

Be comfortable

During meditation, you need to free your mind and your body from all negativity. You cannot do that while your back hurts. Choose a part of your home where you feel good energy.

Lay down a thick mat that will cushion your weight even if you stay in the same position for a prolonged period of time.

Beautify your meditation shrine with decorative pillows with complementary colors. Anything that brings you joy. Think sequins, glitter and bright pigments.

Add candles, scents, figurines and ornaments of your choosing. Anything that puts you in a blissful, joyful state of mind. This is now your safe space. It is your haven.

Be regular

Don’t be hard on yourself in the beginning. If you are trying to meditate to fight stress, do it whenever, and wherever you can. Whenever you feel the need.

However, if you are already completely into the idea, and you are still finding it difficult to concentrate, you have to ask yourself if can possibly create a stronger habit.

Ideally, you should meditate in the morning, in order to prepare your consciousness for the challenges of the day. Or, in the evening, put yourself to sleep in peace.

If you have a hectic schedule, if you work in shifts for example, you don’t need to meditate at the same time of day, but maybe just after you wake up and just before you fall asleep.

Do it your own way

You don’t need to learn Sanskrit in order to meditate. Create your own meditation shrine. Write down your own mantras. Come up with your own tradition. As long as it works for you.

What is most important is:

  • You should know what you are trying to accomplish when meditating
  • You should be able to concentrate on one thought, one idea, that is important to you.
  • At the end of the meditation session you should feel relaxed, at peace, happy. Or just in any way better than you did before you started.

Create habits

Again, you should aim for meditating at the same time of day. Have a particular comfortable clothing when going for your session. Put on the same music that puts you in the right state of mind. Spread around the scent that will put you in the mood.

The idea is to be creating an environment that will condition you to relax and concentrate. Being exposed to the same sensations, your diving deep into your consciousness will become a reflex.

Embrace the culture

Try and learn more about the roots of meditation. You will come across some fascinating facts and beautiful accounts and experiences.

But if you don’t feel the life of a Yogi is for you even though meditation itself works, don’t deny that part of your life.

Reimagine yourself as a modern Yogi. Have respect for your need to clear your consciousness, and acknowledge it is difficult to completely reimmerse yourself in an old culture.

CONCLUSION

Meditation works. It has positive results for millions of people across the globe. It is worth giving a try.

Weather you go for the classic meditation techniques and chants and embrace tradition, or if you go for a more modern version, in line with the contemporary living you can be equally relieved by the anxieties of life, the worries for the future, the anger for the past and the distractions of today.

Choose your way and give it a try. Refine your habits and improve upon your ritual until you feel completely confident with your new state of mind.

Whatever you do, remember you are doing it for you, for your consciousness and your own mind. Your mind creates your world.

Hello Lovelies! It should be no surprise to you all by now that I am a huge fan of using mantra meditation to improve my outlook and bring positive vibes into my life. In keeping with my last post, The Art of Slowing Down, I thought I would share a few of my mantras with you. Meditation is one of my favorite ways to slow down and bring some serenity into my hectic day.

I am always on the look-out for new meditation mantras to focus on during my japa meditations. Japa Meditation (also called mantra meditation) is a technique of repeating a mantra over and over again to focus your thoughts and quiet your mind.

I’ve found it super helpful to use Mala Beads during my japa meditation practice to help keep track of my mantras and maintain focus. A Mala is a necklace of 108 beads that serve as a guide to both focus your thoughts and keep track of the number of mantra repetitions. (Mala Beads explained)

This particular Mala is one from my shop. It is made with Amethyst gemstone beads, which promote stress relief and inner strength. You will notice that there are gold spacer beads. These special beads are placed after every 27th bead, making it easy to keep count of your mantra recitations.

There are a lot of time-honored traditional meditation mantras out there that are extremely useful in meditation. “Om” being one of the most popular and simple of them all. In my own practice, however, I like to use more modern mantras. I find that reciting a mantra in English (that my brain can comprehend) helps me to absorb my intention more clearly and effectively.

I’ve come across a few meditation mantras over the years that I rely on time and time again to shape my thoughts. I like to pick one mantra to focus on for the week or month, to try and bring more of that intention into my life. Here are a few that I use and I hope will help you along your path as well.

Modern Meditation Mantras:

  1. “Where I am right now is exactly where I need to be.”
  2. “I have a purpose in this life.”
  3. “I surround myself by those who make me better.”
  4. “I am a magnet for joy, love, and abundance.”
  5. “Money flows easily and effortlessly to me.”
  6. “I am enough.”
  7. “Every day in every way, I’m getting better and better.”
  8. “I change my thoughts, I change my world.”
  9. “I am at peace with what is, what was, and what will be. I forgive you. I forgive me.”
  10. “I am open to the abundance of the universe.”

As you can see, these modern English meditation mantras are short enough that they are easy to remember, but very powerful in meaning. Spending an hour chanting a mantra over and over may not sound appealing, but it can have a remarkable effect on your overall mindset and mood.

What is a mantra meditation? And how can they be used to augment your spiritual, personal, and yes — even professional development.

Here’s all you need to know about mantra meditations and how they work.

What Is A Mantra?

A mantra is a word or phrase repeated over and over again during meditation.

But using mantras for meditation involves a lot more than just sounding like a broken record. They’re generally sacred in nature – a name or sound that both uplifts you and helps keep you focused during meditation. In other words, they’re designed to change you.

Mantras give your brain something to do. Yes, spiritual mantras are meant to transform you just by uttering them again and again, but there’s a lot to be said for saying something just to keep nonsense babble at bay.

And speaking of nonsense babble, rather than just giving you some meaningless drivel like “my shoes are green,” or “I love pickled herring,” (which, for keeping your mind busy during meditation, does have its benefits. But let’s face it, this is ‘broken record’ material and nothing more).

Here are some tried and true mantras to help you use meditation for transformation.

6 Ancient Meditation Mantras

1.” Aum”

An oldie but a goodie, you really can’t mess this one up too badly. The “Om” is the sacred sound of Hinduism and is said to mean, variously: It Is, Will Be or To Become.

2. “Om Mani Padme Hum”

Rhis one’s from Tibet and it means, roughly, “Hail the Jewel in the Lotus.” The jewel in this case is the Buddha of Compassion.

3. “Namo AmitaBha”

Homage to the Buddha of boundless light.

4. “I am that I am”

This is one of the Hebrew Torah’s most famous lines, and it was God’s answer to Moses when Moses asked for his name.

5. “Ham-Sah”

The Hindu variant, meaning I am THAT.

6. “I love you; I’m sorry; please forgive me; thank you”

Ho’oponopono (Hawaiian) Mantra.

4 Modern Mantras

  • “Love is the only miracle there is.” – Osho
  • “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” – Gandhi
  • “Every day in every way I’m getting better and better.” – Laura Silva
  • “I change my thoughts, I change my world.” – Norman Vincent Peale

It all started with the ancient Hindus, but the use of mantras for meditation has since spread — mostly through the Far East — among Buddhists, Taosts, Sikhs and others. Today, Western peeps on a spiritual path also create mantras.

Many of them seem more like affirmations, but the ones that are short-n-sweet still work nicely for that all-important transformative effect.

Most people think that learning is the key to self-development.

It’s how we were raised – when we were young, we studied algebra, read history, and memorized the names of elements on the periodic table.
But once you grow up and experience life, you realize that you can’t ‘learn’ certain things – like personal growth.
Vishen Lakhiani, founder of Mindvalley and New York Times Bestselling author, discovered that the key to self-development was not to ‘learn’, but rather, to ‘transform’.

Secrets of Meditation — The Ultimate List of Mantras for Meditation

Before going into more detail about 15 very powerful mantras that you can use in your daily meditation practice, let’s answer some questions beginners in meditation usually have when trying to implement this specific meditation technique.

But, first things first. What exactly is a mantra?

Mantra meditation is one of the several basic meditation types. Mantra is a word, phrase, or sequence of words that are silently repeated, sung, or chanted during a meditation session. Repeating mantras is very much like praying, except mantras are usually much shorter than prayers.

One of the definitions of meditation is freeing the mind from any kind of thoughts.

So, the logical question you could ask is how you can have an empty mind, while at the same time repeating words…

… and you would have a very good point there.

Actually, what mantra meditation tries to do, in a way, is cheating the mind. It uses the natural ability of the mind to focus on certain words… and by repeating those words over and over again…, you can, eventually, reduce the inner clutter of distracting thoughts.

Because of this trick, some spiritual teachers, gurus, and experienced meditators don’t even consider mantra meditation a proper type of meditation.

Anyhow, without going into too much detail, the most important thing for us to consider while talking about mantra meditation is whether or not this type of meditation actually works.

And it does. It really does.

This type of meditation works well in what it is supposed to do – to help you calm your mind. It helps you empty some content from the mind, that is a percentage of the various thoughts usually present there.

But if you seek enlightenment, or more comprehensive breakthroughs in your spiritual development, mantra meditation is probably not the way to go.

Who Can Practice Mantra Meditation?

This technique can virtually be practiced by everyone… and anytime. It is very simple, and it can also be fun.

You may try it, even if you are not into this stuff. Even if you don’t believe in meditation. It will work simply because it delivers in what it’s supposed to do.

You get the benefits. You become more relaxed, you center and ground your energies. It makes you free from some of the nagging thoughts and harsh emotions.

And if you already do meditation, but not mantra meditation, you will have another weapon in your arsenal.

How Can You Practice It?

Here are some points you should keep in mind so that you mantra meditation can be really successful.

  1. Select your mantra wisely
    If you have a meditation instructor, spiritual teacher, or a guru, it is only natural that you should receive your mantra from him or her. That’s the wisest choice because, that’s the choice of love.
    In fact, some gurus give their disciples personalized mantras. If that’s the case you are golden.
    If you haven’t yet found your spiritual teacher, see the list below and choose one of the mantras that speaks to your heart.
    In reality, even if you choose a word or a phrase without any meaning whatsoever, this type of meditation technique should work. That’s because of the nature of this practice.
    However, as you can choose, it is much better to choose a powerful combination of words, like some on the list we present at the end of this post.
  2. Select a suitable time
    The best time for me to practice meditation is first thing in the morning. But you can choose any time that works for you.
    Sometimes, when I feel overwhelmed by the events of the day, I try to set some time apart and meditate during the day, even at my workplace. It brings me back on track pretty quickly, much better than, for example, taking a nap.
    You too can practice your mantra meditation whenever you feel stressed, exhausted, or worn-out. But, don’t forget to practice meditation also when you are in the best of shape.
    After all, meditation is contacting your true nature. It should be your greatest joy.
  3. Select a suitable place
    You can practice mantra meditation anywhere. Just like any type of meditation. But, if you are a beginner, maybe you should consider practicing in a quiet and secluded place.
    After you have gained some experience as a meditator, you will be able to extend your meditation routine to other locations, for example, outdoors in a park.
    Eventually, when you have sufficiently deepened your meditation, you will be able to meditate in the most unlikely places, for example in places crowded with people.
  4. Before you start
    You may choose whether you want to close your eyes or not. Meditation can be done perfectly fine with your eyes opened. In most of the cases, though, you will find it much easier if you meditate with your eyes closed.
    Follow your breath for a couple of minutes without trying to change the pace of your inhaling and exhaling. Become aware of the natural rise and fall of your chest. This will induce a state of relaxation, which is a good basis for getting started with your mantra meditation.
  5. The actual meditation
    Simply begin by repeating your selected mantra in your mind. Do that silently. Some teachers recommend that after a couple of minutes you switch to chanting your mantra out loud. It is up to you whether you go for this external part by chanting the mantra, or you just finish your session by continuing to repeat your mantra silently in yourself. I, personally, never switch to chanting out loud.
  6. How much is enough
    At the beginning, no more than 5 minutes in one session. Gradually extend this period to 20 minutes at a time. I have found that it is way more important to be consistent day in day out. Even if it is just a couple of minutes each day. It makes no sense to meditate 20 minutes today, only to skip tomorrow and the day after.
  7. If your mind wanders
    Actually, it’s not a question of IF but a question of WHEN. Your mind will start to wander even if you do this meditation technique right. It will be the same even if you have a lot of experience.
    Nobody has managed to skip this part.
    You will be distracted every now and then. Therefore, it is important to know up front that this is going to happen. When it happens, just gently get back to repeating your phrase. Just notice the change and get back again as soon as possible. It is that simple. No explanations are needed, no rationalizations, and no excuses. Don’t go there. Just bring your attention back to the chosen mantra.
    You see, mantra meditation is extremely simple. It is so simple, that we tend to overlook the simplicity of it, and complicate things over and over again.
    So, reduce your practice to constant repeating the chosen words or phrase. Nothing more, nothing else.

The list

Here is the list of world’s most powerful mantras we’ve promised at the beginning of this post. Make sure that you check this page for the extended meaning of some of them.

  1. “Om” The mantra of universal consciousness. The most famous and most sacred mantra in the Hindu and Buddhist tradition.
    Om doesn’t seem to have a specific meaning, yet it is believed to be related to the primeval, original sound of the universe and to the infinite spirit. Check the below video on how to chant this mantra.
    OHM MANTRA REPEATED 108 TIMES – Most Powerful Mantra of All

  2. “Om Namah Shivaya” Its meaning is “I send my adorations to Shiva”. This mantra is thought to bring peace in the heart of the meditator and joy to their soul. Here’s a complete video on this mantra.
    Peaceful Om Namah Shivaya Mantra

  3. “Om Shanti Shanti Shanti” Used in the Hindu and Buddhist traditions alike, this mantra refers to the peace of mind, body, and speech.
    Shanti is a Pali (one of the many Indian languages) word for “peace”. By repeating it 3 times, it simply means peace to the entire human constitution, to the body, speech and mind.
    Listen to This Mantra in the Video Below

  4. “Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare, Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare” This 16-word mantra is also called Maha Mantra. It is Hindu in origin. It is mentioned in one of the Upanishad.
    By chanting the three names of the Lord: Hare, Krishna, and Rama, we are invoking the Lord and His inner blissful energy.
    Listen to the Hare Krishna Hare Rama as Performed by Jagjit Singh

  5. “Om Mani Padme Hum” This mantra is of Buddhist origin. Its meaning is “The jewel is in the lotus” The lotus being your spiritual heart, of course.
    Tibetan Buddhist Chanting of the Om Mani Padme Hum Mantra

  6. “Om Tare Tuttare Ture Soha” This ancient mantra comes from the Tibetan Buddhism. It is related to Green Tara, “the Mother of all Buddhas”. It helps with personal problems but also it can help deal with real world problems.
    This mantra has as its aim liberation from all mental and emotional delusions, and achieving enlightenment, not only for us, but for all sentient beings.
    Tara Mantra by Ani Choying Drolma

  7. “Guru Guru Wahe Guru, Guru Ram Das Guru” This one is from the Sikh tradition. It takes you on a journey from the personal and finite to the infinite and back.
    Guru means wisdom, because Gu is darkness and Ru light. Wahe Guru takes you to the realm of the infinite. Guru Ram Das was one of the Ten Gurus of Sikhism, whom you are like when you return back from the infinite.
    Listen to the Guru Ram Das mantra

  8. “Gate Gate Para Gate Parasamgate Bodhi Svaha!” This mantra is found at the end of the famous “Heart Sutra” (or Prajna Paramita). Gate in this mantra is pronounced as “gah-tay”. One of the translations of this mantra could be: “Going, going, going on beyond, always going on beyond, always becoming Buddha.” It is a beautiful thought that expresses that becoming Buddha is a process. It suggests that we are on a journey of becoming enlightened as a Buddha, a journey without end. If you decide to try this mantra, you can check the other translations of this mantra here and study it a bit more to get its deeper meanings.
    Om Gate Gate Paragate Chanting

  9. “Om Tat Sat” This one is a Hindu mantra from the Bhagavad Gita. The three words denote the absolute truth. Om refers to the Infinite Spirit, tat to “all that is” and sat to the “truth”.
    Om Tat Sat – Bhagavad Gita Mantra

  10. “Allah Hoo” (Allah hu) This one is a mantra from the Sufi tradition. Allah is the word for God. Together the two words mean “God is” or “God is present”.
    Allah Hoo Performed Live by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan

  11. “I love you, I am sorry, please forgive me, thank you” Hawaiian (Ho???oponopono)
    This is a powerful mantra loosely based on the Hawaiian spiritual tradition. It can be repeated constantly, in any given situation to take responsibility of everything that is happening in your life and for everyone present in it.
    Hawaiian Prayer, Ho’oponopono, Mantra Meditation

  12. “Elohim” Mantra of Hebrew origin. Elohim means a higher class of Angel Being whom can invoke in need of guidance.
    Kadumah Elohim Mantra

  13. “El Shaddai” Also one from the Hebrew tradition. It means “God Almighty”.
  14. “Kadoish, Kadoish, Kadoish, Adonai Tzebayoth” From the Hebrew tradition too. It means “Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God of Hosts”.
    Listen to Kadoish, Kadoish, Kadoish, TSEBAYOTH Adonai

  15. “I am that I am” Hebrew in origin as well. But universal for all people. God???s reply to Moses when he asked for His holy name.
    I AM Meditation Mantra

  16. “Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, the sinner” Also known as Jesus prayer. If you are Christian, especially in the Orthodox tradition, you can use it as a mantra as well. There is hardly any difference between mantra meditation and prayer if both are done right.
    Listen to This Mantra in a Song

  17. “Ave Maria” Latin for Hail Mary. It is a beautiful Christian prayer, but you can use it a mantra too to open your heart for the love and healing energies of Mother Mary.
    Love, Peace, Healing Vibrations, Powerful Christian Mantra

Modern Mantras

Every time seems to have its mantras. At the dawn of the New Golden Age, our time also has some modern meditation mantras:

  1. I am exactly where I need to be.
  2. My life has a Divine purpose.
  3. I attract love, joy, and abundance.
  4. Every day in every way, I’m getting better and better.
  5. By changing my thoughts, I’m changing my world.
  6. I am open to the abundance of the universe.

At the end, a word of caution. Don’t try to find the perfect mantra. Choose one of the above and stick to it, and be successful. There is no reason why you shouldn’t be. Namaste!

These 5 Morning Mantras Will Transform Your Day

  • 60.5KSHARES

Our brains are just like a light switch. When we’re “off” we don’t see much . . . but when we’re “on” we see everything: the positivity, possibilities, potential, and perspective. Every so often, we need a tool to help us harness our “on” power for better focus and enhanced internal connection.
Mantras – in addition to meditation and conscious breathing – are ways to internalize and harness your positive consciousness . . . your true nature!
A mantra is a word or sound meant to be chanted aloud or repeated silently in order to enhance concentration in meditation. Mantras are a positive point of concentration that allow us to be truly present, silencing the noise in our lives and allowing us to be present.
Using mantras in the morning sets a tone for how you’ll view and respond to the world throughout the day. Morning mantras set a positive intention for where your focus and energy should be, empowering you to maintain that mindset throughout the day. Mantras are also a great tool for your meditation practice, especially if you’re just starting out.

These 5 Morning Mantras Will Ignite Your Consciousness and Empower Your Day with Positivity:

1. “I Exist”

Repeat “I exist” during your morning meditation to help harness your ability to identify your self-existence. This mantra is a great way to boost self-awareness and self-esteem. It’s also a great reminder of the interconnectedness of all things.
As you start to chant or silently say to yourself I exist, you are activating your present moment awareness of yourself and all that you are. Use this mantra when you’re feeling defeated, under-appreciated, or needing the reminder that we are all connected.

2. “I am Powerful”

By chanting “I am powerful,” you are defining your ability to control any situation. You recognize that you are in control of your reality and are able to see that your gifts and abilities fuel your internal power. Your absolute happiness lies in your power to choose positivity.
Notice how the mantra “I am powerful” makes you feel. As you repeat it, envision the ways that you are powerful. Use this morning mantra when you need to bring your A-game before a meeting, job interview, presentation, or an exam. This is the perfect mantra for when you need to tap into your strength, your power, and your confidence.

3. “I Love”

This is always a great mantra to start your day or repeat throughout. I love is a mantra that activates and aligns your Heart Chakra. Every time you exhale, bring your awareness to your heart center and envision it filling with emerald green light (the color associated with the Heart Chakra).
Use this mantra if you are feeling down, unloved, lonely or afraid. It’s perfect for times when you need to cultivate more love – either for yourself or people in your life.

4. “Om”

OM, Om, or AUM is the most universal mantra. When you chant “Om” you are creating a powerful sound and vibration. Ancient sages identified Om as the most elemental sound, representing infinite universal consciousness. They were (and so can you) able to hear the subtle vibrations produced by everything in nature – wind, thunder, water, and recognized that these sounds are a manifestation of spirit into matter.
Try chanting “Om” in the morning before getting out of bed, before and after your yoga practice, or when you spaced out, disconnected, or in need of peace and grounding. Chanting OM in the morning will help ground you before you start your day.

5. “I Am”

To chant “I am” is to sit with and acknowledge your divinity. I am connects you to your essence, your true Self, and all of creation. Contained within each of us is everything, and everything is expressed through us. Let the joy of being alive fill you from your fingers to your toes.

Just because being healthy is your job doesn’t mean you automatically wake up happy, energized, and free of under-eye circles—wellness gals have mornings that require multiple snooze alarms, espresso shots, and concealer, just like everyone else. (Even if their idyllic a.m. Instagram pics suggest otherwise.)

But there’s another cool girl-approved secret to setting the tone for a kick-ass day: a morning mantra.

The only real criteria for a solid mantra is that it revs you up and inspires you to tackle your to-do list like a boss.

The only real criteria for a solid mantra is that it revs you up and inspires you to tackle your to-do list like a boss. For some women, high-energy words of empowerment make them feel like they can take on anything. Others prefer a phrase that makes them stop, be still, and reflect before springing into action.

Want to try one for yourself, but not sure where to start? I asked a selection of top trainers, healers, and wellness entrepreneurs to spill their motivational mantras. Go ahead, borrow theirs—they’re all willing to share.

Waking up is a privilege. My morning mantra is to give gratitude—to conquer the day with a good attitude, honoring my body and how it’s feeling daily. Staying positive with everything I do helps me feel calm, and I end up not stressing the small stuff.

CB: I have a mantra I use when meditating—it’s a bija, or seed mantra. It was given to me by Thom Knoles, a maharishi of Vedic meditation. I love the vibration of my mantra, and I use it every time I meditate. It’s a very personal experience to have a mantra, you really bond with it and make it your own.

KH: I love to check in with myself every morning, because once I’m up, the demands of the day can easily take my focus off of what’s truly important. I tell myself that I’m safe and strong, and that every tool I need I already possess. I tell myself that I’m loved and remind myself to speak my truth and to listen to my intuition. I always go over in my mind all that I’m grateful for.

This year, I’ve purposed to be intentional regarding what I eat, my time and energy, my thoughts. In doing this, I’ve found that it allows the mornings to feel a bit less stressful or heavy with anxiety. Being intentional puts everything in perspective. It puts every thought and to-do list in its proper place. I find myself asking often: “Is this needed? Does this have value?”

I start every day with: “I’m grateful for.…” Oftentimes, I wake up in the morning with a list of things I have to do. By practicing and repeating my morning mantra, this allows me to stay mindful and take a deep breath before I start my day. It also allows me to appreciate my surroundings, from my work to my relationships to the home that I’ve created. This mantra gives me the tools I need to start the day with positivity, instead of anxiousness. I find that it also promotes healthier communication with my loved ones!

A bomb breakfast is another healthy morning must. Here’s what Anna Victoria and Olivia Culpo rely on for the most important meal of the day.

3 Inexpensive Things That Have Changed My Life For The Better

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Some fascinating research has been conducted over the past several years that make the discussion of life after death quite interesting.

  • Reflect On:

    Ancient wisdom and teachings have been ‘proven’ right with regards to quantum physics, neuroscience and health in many different ways. Would the same apply to life after death? Can we ever really know?

With over 100 years of research into the nature of death and survival of consciousness, a more sophisticated way of looking at the evidence seems to be emerging. Based on a number of interviews and wide reading, Lance Butler outlines a new understanding based on science as well as spiritual experience.

Even Life after Death changes; like everything else, ideas about Survival have both a history and, if I can put it this way, a future. Some changes are modestly noticeable if one first looks back to the heyday of Spiritualism and the founding of the SPR in the late nineteenth century and then forward to the late twentieth century. In that time ouija boards, to put it schematically, were replaced by NDE research. But there is also a feeling of sameness, even latterly of stagnation, over the period.

During the last twenty or thirty years, too, things have moved forward slowly, but the feeling one still gets reading the main summarising or investigative texts in the field – say Gary Schwartz’s The Afterlife Experiments of 2003 or David Fontana’s Is There An Afterlife? of 2005 – is that the paradigm has remained unchanged. If we put together, for instance, recent examples of mediumship, the NDE material collected since Raymond Moody’s Life after Life of 1975, the ITC evidence (by definition modern), and Scole we find that although it constitutes more evidence, it is roughly the same kind of evidence as it was thirty-five or, in the case of mediumship, a hundred-and-thirty-five years ago.

Fontana, for instance, is able freely to cite nineteenth-century material, stories from the 1920s and 1940s, research from the 1960s, his own experience of poltergeists from the 1980s and the Scole material from around 2000. It all fits quite well; it all adds up to an interesting case for Survival; and it’s still there. One of the strongest arguments for Survival seems to be the fact that, in spite of modern scepticism and modern analytical and investigative techniques, Life after Death hasn’t simply gone away like Phlogiston theory or Geocentrism or Phrenology or bloodletting. Fontana’s evidence is not of a new nature, but it is increasingly solid.

The Need For A New Paradigm

And the evidence has continued to stack up, but it’s still apparent at the end of the first decade of the 21st century that the paradigm has not changed much. More veridical channelings, identifiable voices of the dead on untuned (sometimes even unplugged) radios, better NDEs, everything that happened at Scole – these are all useful grist to the Survival mill, but they do not seem to do have done much for a widening of scientific acceptance of any sort of afterlife. In particular we do not yet seem to have digested quantum physics properly, nor the recent thinking in consciousness studies.

In these circumstances I set out in 2009 to interview a handful of people, all well-known to the SMN, to find out ‘where they are now’ on the matter of Life after Death; I hoped thus to see if there are currently any developments of our Survival paradigm. The interviewees were Rupert Sheldrake, Bernard Carr, Peter Fenwick, David Lorimer, Iain McGilchrist, Matthew Manning and Pim van Lommel.

Van Lommel’s response to my opening question, which asked directly about the afterlife, was a little startling: ‘I never talk about life after death,’ he said. My heart sank a little. Had I got hold of the wrong Dutch cardiologist? But no, it appeared that what he meant is that ‘life after death’ may only temporarily resemble life as we know it here and now; more importantly the quantum ‘non-locality’ of the other side means that it is without time and can be considered to ‘contain’ past, present, and future simultaneously. It is ‘a space or dimension without place or time.’ The simultaneity of the Life Review during many NDEs is well known and that may give us a hint as to what the ‘infinite consciousness’ that apparently awaits us (while not of course really ‘awaiting’ anything) might be like.

Many people, van Lommel continued, have experienced non-duality, non-locality, greater or ‘cosmic’ consciousness. That is the ‘thing’ that is always there, timelessly; it is the incomprehensible greater ‘place’ with which we interface only at very special times. From the perspective of this quantum zone life and death are irrelevant concepts. ‘Life’ in this present world is a species of illusion that we go through, indeed that we actually create. Life ‘over there’ however is certainly not ‘life as we know it.’

Interestingly, van Lommel is quite happy to accept that NDE survivors cannot find the right language to describe their experiences adequately. Of course not. Our language is a tool for the here-and-now, for space and time. As is the case with quantum physics, we are able to mouth words about cosmic experiences, but the words have difficulty in demonstrating any significant content.

Beyond The Self?

I will return to van Lommel at the end of this but for now come with me to visit Peter Fenwick, who also managed to take the feet from under me when I questioned him; in his case the moment came after a good hour of explanation of his research into End-of-Life Experiences when he said, with the smaller of his two smiles, ‘But we do not have a personal self. We are embedded in the matrix of the universe which is our consciousness.’ Different words for pretty much what van Lommel was saying, then, and incidentally what Neale Donald Walsch says repeatedly in his Conversations with God series (‘There is only one of us’).

Fenwick suggests, following Alain Forget, that we can be ‘awakened’ here in this life (to moments of cosmic consciousness) and says that the ego ‘casts a pall over our consciousnesses.’ We are parts of a whole and need to ‘crystallise the light body’ as we do in dreams in similar states. The ‘limited ego’ is a ‘false self’ but even a glimpse of universal consciousness (‘available right now!’) shows us a bigger self.

In extreme NDE cases, Peter pointed out, people seem to go very far, ‘to the point where the illusion of separateness is about to collapse completely.’ In this life we merely make up our stories of life and death. When we recognise that the real is universal consciousness, questions of Survival become non-questions because there is really no birth and no death, just consciousness. Religions, seeking vainly to sift the saved from the non-saved, have lost their spiritual nature by not recognising this universality.

Bernard Carr filled in some of the detail of this radical and rather Buddhist conception of the afterlife. He suggested a ‘hierarchy of dimensions’ that may lead up to or end in ultimate consciousness (‘anatta’ – the empty centre of the onion) but meanwhile there are astral levels and reincarnation possibilities as we all head for what must, by definition, be the only possible goal. For Carr there are different levels of space to accommodate these dimensions and the mind creates the world both here and hereafter where a species of ‘dream-world’ awaits us.

New Metaphors

For Rupert Sheldrake, we already know what it will be like to be disembodied because we have the experience of possessing a ‘dream-body’ at night when we sleep. And, of course, for a physicist like Carr, everything comes down to energy, that is frequencies. Already for Sheldrake there are, famously, morphic fields in which the unknown energies, perhaps those of the ‘non-local’ quantum ‘world,’ operate. And all this, to go back to van Lommel’s opening remarks, is here as may become apparent after death when we may begin to ‘know the place for the first time.’

Sheldrake also observed, as many now would, that, for a while at least, we may get the Life after Death that we expect. We can move beyond our entrapment in desires and the unreal and come to expect something higher and more real, but then again we may not escape from our present lives all at once. He approves of imagination in the shape of myths, fairytales, and dreams, and points out that these are fields that are not based in material reality. They enact some of the possibilities contained in the infinite quantum field. Like Carr, Sheldrake is ‘not dualistic,’ ‘not a super-naturalist’; there is no separate realm into which we can ‘go.’

Mathew Manning, speaking from the deepest and widest experience of things psychic, spiritual, or, as I would now say, ‘non-local,’ stressed that knowledge of Life after Death is not ordinary knowledge. In his view we learn what we need to know in this life and then move on to less knowable realms. He is also more interested in energy than in ‘life’ as a metaphor for Survival. His famous psychic recreation of Durer’s drawings, and of many other works of art and texts in languages unknown to him, are not so much, he says, ‘Durer coming through’ (the older version of Life after Death perhaps) as a psychic picking-up of the energy of the original moment of artistic creation; it is less a matter of an individual’s survival and more a matter of energy circulating as the scientists tell us it does.

Personality & Beyond

By this time I felt that some sort of a pattern was building up. The new paradigm is perhaps only subtly different from the old one but it seemed to be emerging with some new and useful emphases. The claims now made about Survival are less personal than they used to be, for one thing, and the respect for the ideas of quantum-physics more solid. David Lorimer, for instance, told me that he sees Life after Death as ‘another state of consciousness’ in which it may be ‘a less distinctive personality that is you.’ He says he is less concerned now with the survival of his own personality as such. We may come to see that each ‘personality’ is ‘an expression of the universal.’ He quotes Betty Kovacs: ‘Birth is a coming into being of form (‘me’) and death a dissolution of form.’ Cosmic consciousness would be the ‘dissolution of all boundaries.’ We are like blocks of ice floating in the Arctic Ocean of universal consciousness; there is development, evolution, both here and hereafter, but we all belong to and return to the same sea in the end. This is not new, of course, it belongs in Hinduism and Buddhism where we become more ‘ourselves’ by becoming less our individual selves; it is also, according to Lorimer, the inevitable direction of consciousness studies as pursued since the founding of the Journal of Consciousness Studies in 1994.

The most ‘materialist’ person I interviewed was Iain McGilchrist. For him, ‘materiality is an important part of any kind of being we might have’; as he pointed out to me, ‘the universe has gone to an awful lot of trouble to produce this material world.’ Surely a useful corrective. If, to put it bluntly, cosmic consciousness is so terrific, why did it have to add us, messy as we are, not to mention the immense quantum charade of the universe, to what it already had? Why bother to Big Bang if you could just go on being perfect? I know that there are good answers to these questions but McGilchrist’s approach reminds us not to fall into the trap of treating spirituality as if our dinners, our doings, and our bodies didn’t matter at all.

But McGilchrist too is singing off the same page of our now-slightly-revised hymn book. As he put it, ‘the notion that one would be forever oneself is an appalling idea.’ For him consciousness ‘pre-exists us and isn’t created by our brains; our brains simply transmit or transduce it.’ But there is and always will be an ‘I’ – it is ‘God,’ we may come to see, who is the ‘Great I’ that is all of us.

New Directions

The publication in 2010 of Pim van Lommel’s Consciousness Beyond Life has been tremendously convenient for this small investigation. His book, subtitled accurately ‘The Science of the Near-Death Experience,’ seems to me to effect the shift in thinking that we have needed. It is not a huge shift but it should now change the quality of the debate.

Encouragingly, the interviews which I conducted before Pim’s book had been translated into English fit very well with its proposals. After undertaking them and reading Pim’s book I begin to discern the outlines of the altered paradigm. Here are some of its main features:

  • We shouldn’t be naïve about any possible life after death. The appearance of deceased relatives at the death-bed or during NDEs or channeling, in particular, may not mean that Granny is continuing her old life more or less as before. Life in another ‘dimension’ may be more a matter of thought, of our wishes and, of precisely, appearance.
  • The hitherto rather weak connection between Quantum Physics and Survival looks as if it has gained a toe-hold in the intellectually-respectable world. ‘Non-locality,’ a term with origins found exclusively in QP, may be an appropriate replacement for the older term ‘spiritual.’ Physics too does not stop and will surely become less and less like its nineteenth-century avatar; in other words it will become weirder, looser, more improbable, more closely associated with consciousness, more ‘non-local,’ less simply ‘materialist.’
  • Life after Death is really not either ‘life’ as we know it nor ‘after’ our deaths, for the ‘non-local’ is always with us and underpins our world and our lives all the time; or perhaps I should use some unthinkable expression such as ‘all the non-time.’
  • NDEs do definitely occur during periods of negative brain activity. Whatever else they may mean they constitute clear evidence that the brain cannot be the whole story when it comes to explaining consciousness. Van Lommel’s research has changed things a little, and it is only the beginning of a long process whose end seems, at the very least, less and less likely to be straightforward materialism as we have known it.
  • In the matter of Survival we should expect both everything and not too much. By ‘everything’ I mean that Survival is connected with the universal or ‘infinite’ consciousness from the perspective of which all other things are apparently in some way illusory. By ‘not too much’ I mean that one of the main things one may see through, as consciousness is liberated from the material, is one’s ‘own’ personality.
  • ‘Energy’ is perhaps the metaphor that best connects the world of the non-local (or transpersonal or spiritual) with the world of physics. We do not yet know how energy can exist in the non-local where the energetic, involving movement by definition, should be absent because in that ‘dimension’ there is no time or space. But that there is some energy there – in Dark Matter or as Dark Energy perhaps – is evident from the fact that we are here at all; it was some sort of energy that brought about the Big Bang and before that there was no locality by definition.
  • Here, and hereafter, we seem to create our own worlds through our personal consciousnesses. The great or universal consciousness may be what creates the universe. We may do the smaller job of creating our own ‘worlds’ and ‘lives.’ Language makes all, but it cannot describe adequately the process by which it does this.
  • Buddhists, Hindus, and mystics of all stripes have the right approach. We need to read Angelus Silesius rather than too much academic philosophy. We, or parts of us, may be temporarily reincarnated. For a while after death we may perhaps need to ‘live’ in a place that we recognise (we won’t find that too hard to create presumably) but there would then be a moving on, into realms literally indescribable.
  • Body is particle and consciousness is wave. Our particles at death undergo what they have always undergone, change into something else. The waves of consciousness persist just as the scientists tell us all energy forms persist, forever. But we do not infinitely persist as the ‘us’ we currently think we are; ‘we’ will persist, if we do, as something endlessly ‘greater’.
  • This is all embarrassingly similar to the propositions of many religions. But it is not, in itself, religion at all.
  • Inverted commas are needed in this area passim. ‘Life’ ‘after’ ‘death?’ We do not, and cannot, really ‘know’ about all this. Not even with the sensible and modest knowledge of science. Especially not with that.
