What is a mantra?

A mantra is a word, sound, syllable or a group of words that are repeated with the goal of creating a positive transformation within a person.

Where do mantras come from?

Mantras have been used in Hindu and Buddhist traditions for many centuries, but now mantras are used by anyone who wants to restore peace in their mind and balance their energy.

How do mantras work?

The sound of a mantra has a persuasive effect on our body and mind. It is more powerful than common sounds. As you chant you bring stillness to your mind and relaxation to your body which connects you to a natural healing energy.

What is the best way to do a mantra meditation?

A mantra practice is simple and direct, the more you do it with an opened mind and a focused attention, on sounds of the words you are repeating, the more you will evoke a powerful awareness within yourself.

Like most meditations, mantras can be done in a quiet place where you sit comfortably and recite a group of words. I enjoy doing mantras while I walk. This incorporates two styles of meditation, walking meditation and mantra meditation. The benefit of doing both styles of meditations is that it brings together your mind and body while opening your spirit up to receiving positive energy.

What are the benefits of doing a Mantra?

Our lives can get complicated and it is very easy to fall out of balance and be consumed by negative energy. The benefits of doing a mantra can help you rebalanced your equilibrium and bring a feeling of groundedness within. Mantra’s are powerful and instill peace and happiness in your heart center. This type of meditation also helps to create mindfulness because your attention is directed to the Mantra.

I highly recommend mantra meditation for anyone seeking; direction in a meditation practice, opening the heart, and or bringing positive energy into their life.
