What is Mantra Chanting?

Research has demonstrated that we have between 45,000 and 51,000 thoughts a day. That’s about 150 to 300 thoughts a moment. Research has likewise demonstrated that for most individuals 80% of those thoughts are damaging.

You heard me talking about affirmations and meditation, over and over again. How important it is to change our mindset if we want to make some changes in our lives. Affirmations make you conscious of your thoughts. To affirm means to state something positively. Affirmations are statements where you assert that what you wish to be real is real. Utilizing favorable affirmations gives you back command of your mind and the information it gets.

If you wish to enhance your life, it’s time to decide to think positively.

Today I want to talk about Mantra chanting that I practice from time to time. It is another way to elevate yourself in a meditative state and activate your energy centers. I encourage you to try chanting during your meditation to engage with your body, mind, soul, and energy.

What does Mantra means?

Mantra, chants or syllable sounds is a powerful way that may help to activate your chakras in your body. “Man” means mind and “tra” means across, so a mantra is something that’s repeatedly crossing your brain to control your thoughts for meditation.

Mantra chanting isn’t the same thing as singing. You don’t have to be perfect, you simply have to want to open your heart in meditative peace and let your spirit spill out. There are 2 languages for chants sung in the Indian tradition:

Sanskrit and Gurmukhi.

Sanskrit is the language of Hindu chanting and is utilized by most yogic traditions except Kundalini Yoga, which is taken from
the Sikh tradition and has chanting sung in the Gurmukhi language.

How to choose a mantra:

Choosing a mantra is an important step. Think of your reasons to chant a mantra. People chant to achieve self-love, connection with other people, better relationships, prosperity, better job opportunities, good business deals, or to connect with their true self.

Chanting can help you achieve these things because it sets you in the right vibration and the right frame of mind. You will be able to listen to your intuition and trust your instincts.

You can choose from hundreds of mantras. Set a clear intention and choose a mantra that will help you get what you want. Listen to a few different mantras and note how you feel when you listen to them. Many are available on YouTube so you can choose which one you can relate and feel comfortable with. When you find a mantra that resonates with you, it will feel right. Your synchronicity with a mantra happens on a vibrational level.

You can choose to work on one single sound/mantra like AUM per session, full sentences mantra chanting or with a series of mantra to activate your chakras like the Bija Mantras, that are ancient tools that tap into energy field that exists in this entire universe

The mantra chanting should be done during meditation with eyes closed, sitting comfortably and straight. You may chant mantras several time as repetition can help you access a meditative state.

The AUM/OM chanting benefits include connection with the cosmos through spiritual awakening. It helps you to connect with your true essence. When you chant Om, you invoke all that you are on the deepest level.

Bija (pronounced BEEJ) means “seed” because they have incredible, cosmic power to unlock growth and healing. The Bija Mantras are one syllable sounds that are meant to activate the chakras along the center line of the body. Chant the bija mantras one at a time while bringing your attention to each chakra location as you go through the bija mantras. At the crown, feel your energy rise up upwards beyond to the universe. Stay here in silence for as long as you feel comfortable. Then slowly bring your attention back down to each location crown, third eye, throat, heart, solar plexus, sacral and root. Ground your energy down through your hips and/or your feet. Slowly open your eyes when you’re ready to come back into the room.

There are 7 Bija mantras associated with the main seven chakras:

LAM (LUM) Red Root Chakra

VAM (VUM) Orange Sacral Chakra

RAM (RUM) Yellow Solar Plexus Chakra

YAM (YUM) Green Heart Chakra

HAM (HUM) Blue Throat Chakra

OM (OM) Indigo Third Eye Chakra

Silence (OM) Purple Crown Chakra

Benefits of Mantra chanting:

Mantra chants are simply a way to invoke sound vibrations in your throat to harness the healing power of that energy and foster transformative growth. Every mantra has its own vibrational frequency and different healing power which channels cosmic energy through our bodies, and generates incredible healing energy. You can use mantra chanting for love, success, health, peace, prosperity, or to connect with yourself

The words of a mantra are a vessel that takes you across the sea of your mind to arrive at the lands of the divine.

Repeating these words aloud has a particular effect on the body. As you state the mantra, your tongue is hitting meridian points on the top of the upper palate of the mouth, which impacts the energies going to other glands like the hypothalamus, the pineal, and the pituitary.

By arousing these meridian points, you’re physically producing the effect of relaxation and a modified state of consciousness.
When you first begin, don’t worry about your pronunciation and don’t fret about hitting the correct notes. All of this will come with time.
Chanting involves so much repeating, that you pick things up sooner or later.

Every morning I do this chanting to Lord Shiva: Karpur Gauram Karunavataram, Sansara Saram Bhujagendra Haram |
Sada Vasantam Hridayaaravinde, Bhavam Bhavani Sahitam Namami || ( It blesses the devotees with good health, wealth, and peaceful life.) and I am telling you my pronunciation is a disaster, but it is the intentions that count.

The most crucial thing in chanting is your heart. Open it up wide.
Ride the sound current like a wave. Feel the infinite divine right here, right now, within of you.

Namaste ❤

PS: This is one of the music I like to listen while doing work. It brings me peace !

Mind And Heart Work Together

Both the mind and the heart need educating. 😎
Both need to learn in order to be successful, compassionate and happy in your life 💪

Aristotle believed that the heart was the true “center” of the human body, and that the brain was not.
If you want to live a different life or you wish to control the outcome of your life, you need to learn and grow from the heart.🔥

Which of these organs do you follow the most as you explore your education and experiences?

Body, Mind And Soul

Body, Mind and Soul are three very important words.
Your thoughts inspire emotions which cause a reaction in your physical body. 🙌

How many times have you had an idea? Excitement came first and after a few days/weeks resistance followed 💁‍♀️

If what you want does not match what is showing up in your experience, then you are not in alignment. 🤔

Everything you experience is a reflection of your vibrational state. 🌈

If you want to manifest faster, align your vibration and remove all resistance. 🙏

I am spending at least an hour every single day reflecting on what I want in life for my family, meditating and working on my mindset. Do you?

A Negative Mind Will Never Give You A Positive Life

The mind never becomes tired, but sometimes it becomes bored with the “food” it gets. 🤔

Computer experts use the acronym GIGO – garbage in, garbage out- to illustrate the fact that the computer can process only the information it is given. The same is true with your mind. If you feed it healthful, nourishing “food”, it will grow strong and agile, but if your restrict it to a regular diet of mental “junk food”, your mind will become unhealthy, negative and unproductive. It will return to you what you put into it. Feed your mind a balanced, nourishing diet! 💪😎

The Mind Is Like A Parachute

Wally Amos, the cookie mogul had numerous obstacles to overcome his long road to success. 💫
“I want to tell people that if life hands them a lemon, they can turn it into lemonade.” 🍋

If you open your mind to the possibilities, objectively analyse information and refuse to allow your personal preferences and biases to influence your judgement, you will be able to perceive great truths that have been overlooked by others.

A close mind, though, will cause you to miss out on some of life’s greatest offerings.

Always keep an open mind and follow the path you choose !

Don’t compare yourself

It is human nature to compare ourselves with the people around us. 🤔

It can be positive if we use this to motivate us to do better and improve our lives. However if we compare ourselves constantly to others it can be very destructive and toxic.😌

Being stuck with envious feelings can ruin your life. There are ways to control envy and not to feel bad about other people’s perfect lives.

👉 Appreciate what you have. If you are grateful for your blessings, there is no room in your heart to be jealous of other people
👉 Realize that what you have isn’t a measure of who you are as a person.. Some people have a luxurious lifestyle and are not happy; some people have less but are grateful for their blessings
👉 Do not compare your worst. You may feel that life is not fair, as you see only negativity in yours; but you don’t know the struggles other people have to keep up with their lifestyle, their life might not be as perfect as you think 
👉 Realize that you don’t always need what you want. Sometimes we believe that we will only be happy if we have something that we want. We don’t realize that even without these things we can be perfectly happy.
👉 Practice gratitude. If you are grateful for life’s blessings, then there is nothing in this world can make you feel less of yourself. You know that you are here with a purpose and you don’t need to compete with other people to feel good about yourself.

Remember that the only person you should be greater than is YOURSELF.🔥

One Love ❤️

It all begins and ends in your mind.

Focus and give power to things that move you forward in life! 
👉 Focus on the good and there will be more good. 
👉 Focus on the bad and there’s more of that.

Don’t limit yourself! You too often limit yourselves to what you think you can do and not what you are capable of doing! 😎

Your words are thoughts in action, and they are more powerful than your thoughts alone. 🤔

One Love ❤️

It all begins and ends in your Mind

Focus and give power to things that will help you achieve your goals and move you forward in life! 🤔

Do not let your mind limit you.👊

Many people limit themselves to what they think they can do and not what they actually are capable of doing.💪

Be yourself! Be original and keep focusing on your goal!!! The Universe is big and will show you the way to fulfill your dreams.
You can go as far as your mind lets you. 😍

Whatever your mind conceive and believe it can achieve.🔥🔥

One Love ❤️
