A mantra is a word or phrase that's frequently uttered to invite positive vibrations and calming
influences into our lives. Mantra meditation has grown in popularity recently due to the
widespread belief that it helps you perceive situations more positively, elevating your
consciousness and reducing tension via the practice of chanting.
A mantra allows you to stop your mind from wandering off while concentrating on the words
spoken. Often, people recite specific terms or syllables to induce feelings of harmony while
unwinding blocked energy. Your mantra could also be as simple as an affirmation for yourself.
Choosing the right mantra is a matter of finding one that aligns with your intentions. With the
right mantra, and belief in the change you want to see, you can make your vision a reality.
If you're unsure where to start, it's vital to remember that there is no right or wrong way to chant.
You can use simple syllables such as “Om”, “Aum” or “So Hum” which are said to be the original
sounds of the universe and are infused with its power. Or you can also look for specific goal-
oriented mantras by checking out deity or chakra healing mantras.
The Gayatri Mantra.
The Gayatri Mantra is one of the oldest and most powerful Sanskrit mantras. Originating from
Goddess Gayatri, known as the Mother of all scriptures (Vedas) or ‘Veda-Mata’, she is a
powerful being known to eliminate darkness by illuminating our minds with light. She is said to
bless those who pray to her with pure thoughts. The Gayatri mantra is said to cleanse the
chanter and listener of negative thoughts and bodily poisons, enhancing breathing and
maintaining the health of your heart. As your body releases stress and anxiety with each
exhalation, improved breathing helps you focus and learn more effectively.
Experience a calmer approach to your life with the daily recitation of the Gayatri mantra as you
will be blessed with knowledge and protection by the Goddess. The Vedas state that the Gayatri
Mantra is to be chanted at Satva between 4 am and 8 am and 4 pm and 8 am for the best
