In today’s age of the internet and hustle culture, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the pace of life. As individuals, our aim is to find our own brand of peace. We are caught in a rat race, always trying to live a better life and chasing our dreams.
But what if we were to tell you that your dreams and desires are closer than you believe they are?
Affirmations and mantras are a form of goal-setting to help us to chase our dreams, and are used in different ways with your goal being the same.
Affirmations help to reprogram the mind to positive thoughts, while Mantras help to connect with your higher spiritual self, bringing inner peace.
Maha Mala, your go-to source for authentic crystal jewellery from India, is here with a useful guide on goal-setting for a better tomorrow.
Affirmations are like a pep talk you give yourself. They are a medium of self-care to build up your motivation and self-worth. Everything you tell yourself should affirm what you desire.
An affirmation can help escape negative thoughts, and act as a tool to help you achieve your goals by lowering stress, anxiety and depression. An affirmation is like a declaration to the self to break free from old, limiting and negative beliefs. They help you craft a new belief system for yourself.
In the Hindu and Vedic belief systems, Mantras are sacred sounds in the form of words, prayers, hymns, phrases and syllables. Much like affirmations, a mantra is a tool to slow down incessant and uncontrollable thoughts.
Mantras are chants repeated multiple times during yoga or meditation. The repetition of Mantras lowers anxiety and stress to bring inner peace and joy through the act of positive reinforcement
Chanting mantras can bring peace to you and your surrounding environment, as well as improve your mood and mindset.
