Mantras for meditation are an ancient way of aligning yourself with your inner power and allowing the goodness from the universe into your life.
What is a Mantra?
A Mantra is a sound that you make when you meditate to aid with concentration. It makes it easier for you to connect with your inner power, and helps stop your mind wandering.
People have been using Mantras for meditation for many thousands of years. The mantra is used to focus the mind on the object of one’s desires. The ah and the om meditation are my favourite.
The ah or ahh sound is believed to be the sound of God in any language. The ah sound can be made out of the various names of god. God becomes Gahd. Buddha becomes buddah, Allah already includes the ah sound and so on. If you are not religious do not worry, God is just a name, using the ah sound you are simply sending your desires out into the universe. It is a form of Cosmic ordering.
Think of it as an epiphany, remember a ayurveda course in rishikesh time when you have been struggling with something. Say you are late and you can’t find your car keys, you search, your purse, pockets, turn out all the draws and suddenly there they are and you go ahhh and relax. It is the sound you make when you sink into a luxurious bath, or relax at the end of a long day.
It is a sound we have been making since the dawn of language, and I believe it is a sound full of power. Use it to focus on manifesting your desires; it is the first part of a powerful mantra meditation.
The second part of the mantra manifesting meditation is the ohm sound. This is the sound of gratitude. By repeating the ohm mantra you are informing the universe of your gratitude.
If you want to manifest something concentrate on being grateful for already having it and repeat the ohm sound whilst sending that gratitude through your third eye to the universe.
I have been using a Mantra Meditation for some time now. I believe it has helped me control pain and bring my desires into my life. My husband, on the other hand… He does not laugh at me, because he has seen how much it has helped me, but his view is that the help has come from the mantra meditation forcing me to breathe more deeply.
I don’t actually worry how it works; it has helped me change my life.
For a basic mantra meditation follow these instructions:
Find a quiet place and get comfortable, I prefer sitting in a relaxed chair, but you can sit or lie down or sit cross-legged on the floor.
Know what you want to concentrate on i.e. increase in health, more money, finding a partner etc.
Close your eyes.
Breathe in deeply and relax.
As you exhale make the sound ahh, and whilst doing so imagine your goal achieved and send that thought via your third eye into the universe.
Repeat the process for a few minutes making the ahh sound on every exhale and concentrating on sending your goals to the universe.
That’s the meditation finished, enjoy.
