What is a Self Love Mantra?

Self- Love.

When you first read this word, the first thing that would come to your mind would be, 


Isn’t that Narcissism, or being egoistic?


The difference between Narcissism and Self love is that, when you say you are a narcissistic person, that means you want the whole world to revolve around you. 

When you say you love yourself that means you want peace and happiness to revolve around you. 

See the difference?

Self love means accepting who you truly are. Self love also includes the dimension of physical, psychological and spiritual well being. When these three are in a perfect balance, you shall then feel a sense of calm.

There will be an increase in the level of  self acceptance. You shall also work towards growing towards being a better version of yourself, not indulge in unhealthy comparison with others. 

Maybe you feel your weight is too much, maybe you feel you do not have enough body weight, either way! self love | be yourself

You are perfect!

When you accept your true self, you accept that there are some setbacks, some destructive habits that you would have as a human. There are some mistakes in the past that hinder you from moving ahead, that makes you hate yourself or makes you feel angry at yourself for doing that.

I once read this quote somewhere, that the relationship that you have with yourself is the most difficult one.

At first I never understood why the author said that, it’s only later when I read the further explanation that I realised what he said was correct.

Look back in your past and introspect, wouldn’t there be so many things that you would still be blaming yourself for?

How would that make you feel?

Angry, hurt, guilty, shameful, etc?

In order to move past this to love yourself in the purest form, there is a need to remind yourself that you did the best you could at the moment in time. 

Rest, once you decide that you wish to take this journey of Self love, rather than trying to fit into the world’s ideal definition of love and perfection, you shall seek peace and happiness.

So what exactly is this Self love mantra?

Here are a few to start off with:

  • Embrace your past and forgive yourself for those mistakes:

I get it, this is not that simple to do. 

But hey! If you keep reminding yourself of those past mistakes you will keep entangling yourself in the past chain. 

Rather, accept those mistakes, embrace them. 

All of those mistakes, those drunk calls, those moments wasted upon someone who hurt you, did not make you weak! It rather made you stronger for you have survived that. 

This will not magically happen in one day, it would take practice.

Everyday before sleeping,  remind yourself that you forgive yourself for those mistakes you made in the past. You also forgive others who hurt you intentionally in the past. 

Another activity you can do is,  if you feel more comfortable in writing, then you can write a forgiveness letter to your past self. Or pray everyday and seek forgiveness from yourself.

This is an example of the prayer I say every night before going to bed,

“I forgive myself for all the mistakes I made in the past. Please give me the strength to embrace them and become a better version of myself.”

  • Practice Self Care :

This has to be one of the most important aspects if you wish to practise Self Love. 

You cannot love yourself, if you are not mindful about your own physical, emotional, sexual needs. 

Self care includes everything! 

Right from the food you would eat, to your skin care or night time routine, everything is important. 

An ideal self care routine includes making sure you eat healthy, protein rich food and juicy fruits. Cut yourself some slack from those sugary and refined flour breads, etc.

Try getting a body massage or a hot oil hair massage, this will help you relax and it feels very refreshing.

Try taking care of your skin and body. Have loads of water, try some outdoor activity, go out and get those running shoes on track!

Your physical body is the first thing that is noticed by yourself and others too. First impression is the last right?

Next, try regulating your emotions and sharing what you actually feel. 

Learn the art of saying  “NO” when you do not wish to do something. 

Be assertive!

It’s okay to say no and temporarily disagree with your friends feelings rather than saying yes and permanently breaking your own heart.

  • Accept yourself for who you truly are :

Ask yourself this question, do you truly accept yourself for who you truly are?

Self acceptance comes with allowing yourself to be how you truly are and being totally alright with it. It’s accepting that there are some negative aspects about you too. We are humans and it’s very natural to have them. 

It’s all about the way you balance them out. And work in the direction of adding more positive traits in your life, not negatives which would pull you down.

So go on, dance in the rain, write poems, bake cookies, ask that girl out who you pushed away to act cool. 

Life is too short! 

Go on and live the moment that makes you feel alive, but bravely face  the one that makes you weak too.

  • Include mantras during meditation :

When you include positive mantras or phrases during meditation, you are making way for those positive phrases to be fully ingrained into your unconscious mind. 

When meditating, try positive affirmations. Leave others for that moment, keep the focus upon yourself.

These are a few positive mantras you can inculcate next time you are meditating :

  • I am beautiful just the way I am.
  • I am worthy of all the good things in my life.
  • I accept my flaws, they make me strong too.
  • I am becoming a better version of myself everyday.
  • Each new day, I will allow more positive thoughts to surround me.
  • Try writing positive things about yourself / deeds  you have done.

Lastly, any self love practise is incomplete without actually introspecting about those positive deeds and acts you did in the past and jotting them down in your diary or journal.

You can start by mentioning simplest or simple deeds, such as you helped a lady in the way, made coffee for your S.O, and did the laundry all by yourself. 

Mention how proud you are that you accomplished these without anyone’s help, and rate your happiness, out of 10 for every task you did. This will help you see that there are so many tasks you do in the entire day, that too so quickly and efficiently which is unique to you!


As Robert Morley rightly said, to fall in love yourself is the first secret to happiness and I couldn’t agree less. For the more you fall in love with yourself and accept your true self, the more loving and accepting you shall be of others in your life.

The Law Of Attraction Explained With Fun Images

Most articles out there take the boring science-like route when it comes to explaining the law of attraction.

Not that science isn’t important, it is. And you’ll get to see a few in this article. But we felt it’d be a great idea to lean into the fun side and rely on images.

In simple terms, the law of attraction is about using the power of thoughts to attract your desires or results from the universe.

As Bob Proctor once said “If you can think about it in your mind, you can hold it in your hand”

There are various laws you’ll need to be aware of in order for you to place your desires firmly within your hands.

So let’s take a look.

Manifesting With The Law Of Attraction

Some  people think certain things are unachievable with the law of attraction.

Well, we can tell you that’s not true. As you can see from the picture, you can command the universe to send a bunch of cool stuff your way.

And the best part? You simply rely on your thoughts to do the hard work for you.

Money, cars, new relationships, and even houses are the benefits you get when you do the law of attraction correctly.

You don’t have to be super smart to make this work either. 

Can you speak? Can you visualize? Can you obey the most simplest laws? And do you have desires deep inside your heart?

If you answered yes to all those questions then you’re a perfect fit for the law of attraction.

You might be wondering, when we say “laws” what do we mean?

Consider them as your guides to ensure your law of attraction journey is successful.

We’ll cover them in the next section below.

The Laws Within The Law Of Attraction

Laws are nothing more than guides. Follow them and you’d be led to your promise land. Disregard them and you’ll be left in the same situation you’re in.

Are you ready to get in touch with the laws?

Cool, let’s begin.

Law 1: Everything Is Vibration

At your core, you’re made up of atoms. Atoms that move rapidly, causing vibrations.

The universe detects high vibrations. Then rewards it with the desires they seek.

This law has been proven over and over again with quantum physics (this is the science part I told you about)

Physicists observed that all forms of matter are made up of atoms vibrating at various frequencies.

These vibrations play a huge role in how you interact with the universe. They’re like signals that the universe responds to when you’ve got some intentions to manifest.

Law 2: Like Attracts Like

Want to attract a car or a new house? Then you must become that person.

It’s no surprise we often attract people or things that seem most like us. Some people may want to believe that the people around just came out of nowhere. But this is far from the truth. Our world or environment is shaped by who we are.

That’s you’ve got to cultivate a present-tense habit. Meaning living life like you’re already the person you desire to be.

Law 3: Thoughts become Things.

Your ability to manifest things is baked into how well your thoughts are aligned with your intentions.

If you fill your mind with positive thoughts, you fill your life with positive things.

It’s how the universe gives you what you deserve.

How To Practice The Law Of Attraction

Now let’s get down to the nitty gritty. You know, the actual fun stuff that moves the needle.

Everything we’ve discussed will help you in some way. But this is where the rubber truly meets the road for attracting your desires.

Step 1: Create A Serene Environment.

Noise infects our energy and vibrations.

You want to be able to hear your thoughts and feel your emotions. All of which are basically impossible when distractions are pulling your focus from every corner.

So the first step is to find a quiet place  to unplug from daily distractions.

Step 2: Get clear on your intentions.

Lack of clarity is one of the biggest reasons people don’t get what they want.

Different thoughts or desires colliding with each other. Sometimes people aren’t sure of what they want. So they half-ass the entire process.

Bad idea for anyone looking to produce worthwhile results with manifestation.

Step 3: Visualize Your Desires

Time to seal the deal. This part is where you see yourself having everything you wished for.

Why do you have to do this? So you can feel and process the emotions. Emotions are your guiding light in the law of attraction. 

And visualizations are a great way to pull the right ones. You’re probably going to feel good seeing yourself with a new partner, right?

Well that feeling translates to a higher vibration – which is vital in the law of attraction

What Can The Law Of Attraction Get You?

Well, there’s a whole lot you stand to gain when you apply the law of attraction.

Don’t think your desires are too far-fetched. It might take some time to learn. But as you pull through, you’ll attract your desires faster.

Here are a few things you can expect from the law of attraction.

Manifest Love.

Most people, from your friends to family, long for a soul mate.

Someone they can share a burning desire with. The good news is that the law of attraction can help you achieve that.

Manifest wealth.

Money makes life easier. Whether that’s vacation with the family, better health care or tastier food.

Point is, we’re probably going to have life a little tougher if we run short on some of the green stuff. 

But not to worry though – the law of attraction can give your income significant leaps.



Manifest a new house

Sometimes we want a change of environment. Or an upgrade to our living conditions.

And this could simply mean getting a better house – with more space or at a convenient location.

The law of attraction is your trusted buddy to bring that desire into reality.

Law Of Attraction Exercises

You know how we keep our physical body healthy with exercises?

The same is true about your spiritual body too.  Our spiritual body runs on positive emotions and feelings.

All of which come from adopting specific exercises. 

Here are just a few to get you started.


Writing down your thoughts or goals is not only a great way to achieve progress, but to track it.

Sometimes, seeing how far we’ve come is a major boost to our confidence.

And gaining confidence is a great way to increase our vibrations.


The ancient art of peaceful thinking. Meditation has been long practice to get the mind healthy and refreshed.

You can also practice it under the soothing comfort of your favorite music or binaural beats.

Use Vision boards.

Vision boards are collages of pictures, images, texts or quotes that represent your goals.

The best vision boards are filled with dashes of creativity and inspiration.


Wrapping It up

So there you have it. 

The law of attraction could be the last thing you’ll try before your life turns around.

Sometimes the results are instant. Other times they take a while to unfold. 

But whatever the case, you’re bound to witness dramatic changes with what you’ve learned today.

What’s Your Unique Gift? Ways to Discover it

Last weekend, Chloe finally had the chance to take her parents to their favorite dinner spot in Seattle. The kind of place where you can get real homemade apple pie and chocolate ice cream. You’ll swear you’ll never taste someone else’s.

Her Dad said to her, “Remember this time last year when you called us around 3am crying because you wanted to quit your job? You did not know what you were doing in life? Or if you were meant to do anything at all? And remember what I told you? Doesn’t matter how long it takes, you were born with a unique gift. You just have to find it and do what you love… Look at you know…”

Yeah I know what you’re thinking, ‘finding your unique gift’ may sound a little cliché, Chloe thought that too. 

But she knew in her heart that his words were through. No matter what she ends up doing, she knows that she’ll work extra hard to become the best at it.

And it only makes sense for her to find something that aligns with her life’s purpose. She was able to find what made her unique, and today, she is doing the work she loves.

That doesn’t mean she won’t face tough or challenging times, but it means that she is continually building her life, sharing what she was called to do with those around her. 

If you’re struggling with discovering your unique gift and a way to share them with the world, read on. 

Were We Born with a Unique Gift?

The short answer is yes.

Every one of us comes into this life with a set of unique gifts and special talents. Your whole life will have a new meaning and clearer direction when you find that gift and use it in a valuable way.

You often ask yourself questions like: why are we here? What is my purpose? What makes me unique? Does any of this even matter?

The truth is you have a specific purpose for coming into this world. You matter. Your life matters. And as you journey your way through self-discovery, you’ll find certain things that you love doing. You begin to align with your calling. 

Through a lot of practice, self-doubt, and filing forward, I discovered my calling to help people become a better version of themselves. In the course of my discovery, I realized that there isn’t a one-size-fits-all to finding your unique gift. 

How Do We Know What Our Gifts Are?

Your gift gradually unfolds to you. Here are some of the qualities to look out for to help you determine if you have found your gift… or not:


You know something is your gift when you feel thankful for the opportunity to share it with the world. I feel grateful for the opportunity to share this article with my readers. I’m always happy when I hear people healing from pain, finding their life’s purpose, and aligning with the universe.


Our gifts inspire us to wake up each day and get going. Whenever we get the chance to showcase our gifts we often feel inspired and happy. When you feel tired or unmotivated, the smallest chance can help you dust yourself off, pick yourself up, and get a fresh start to a new day. 


Our gift offers freedom of expression and living. When something is your true calling, the universe supports it. So, we often feel free from limitations. This also means something you’ll happily give away for the joy that it brings you.  


Our gifts transform us because we grow in our self-belief. We become someone who and we are capable of doing the things we never thought we could. You’ll start to feel better, more confident, spiritually connected with the universe. Through this transformation, we can change the world. 

If you’re not sure what your gift is, try asking yourself these questions:

How did you love to spend your childhood?

What did you enjoy doing as a child? How would you pass the days and what kind of activities did you enjoy doing? What experiences created the best memories?

Think back to the time when your heart was young and you weren’t influenced by society. Were your parent’s expectations of you didn’t go beyond playing around in a safe environment. Think back as far as the pre-school days if possible. 

The common theme in there will lead you down the path of discovering your unique gift.

What are you passionate about as an adult?

What makes you get up from bed even when you are tired? What lights you up? What kind of things do you enjoy doing so much that you lose track of time?

Do you have these experiences at work? Does your leisure or hobby fall into this category? Moments where time stops point towards areas of deep interest and passion. This is another key in discovering your calling.

What’s important to you about life?

When you think about areas of your life – career, religion, relationship, family, leisure activities – make a list of what’s important to you.

This list contains your values and what you stand for. When you combine your values in every aspect of your life, it can direct you towards unfolding your gift.

What’s the one thing others associate with me?

Families, friends, associates, coworkers can observe you in a way you can’t observe yourself. Many times, their observations are far greater than self-analysis. 

Ask them questions like, “What makes me unique? What is my strongest personality trait? What areas do I excel in?” They may not be able to pinpoint your unique gift, but their answers can be light on your path.

Find yourself

To live a fulfilling life, one must discover their unique gift and use it in a valuable way to help other people. You have something unique to offer. Give yourself room to find it. 

When you identify it, you will have the opportunity to live a successful and fulfilled life. At the end of the day, who you are, what you are meant to do will show up.

And remember, you matter in more ways and on more days than you can think of.

How to Use The 17 Seconds Manifestation Method

“Hold a thought for just 17 seconds and the law of attraction kicks in. Hold a thought for 68 seconds and things move; manifestation has begun.” – Abraham Hicks. 

If you could manifest your biggest desires by thinking about them for 17 seconds, would you do it? 

Now I know what you are thinking. Can I manifest anything 17 seconds from now?

If you are new to manifestation and the whole law of attraction, basically our experiences in the outer world are created by our internal thoughts and feelings. It’s all about emitting the right vibration. If your thoughts are negative, you attract negative things. If they are positive, you’ll experience positive happenings. 

Let’s shift our attention back to the 17-second manifestation method. How does this work? And what do I need to make it work?

According to Abraham Hicks, one of the best law of attraction teachers, manifestation begins when you hold a single thought for 17 seconds. He calls this the “combustion point.” You can intensify and strengthen it until the thought spans up to 68 seconds. 

You can utilize the 17 seconds rule by focusing your mind on a thought or idea, speaking out loud, or writing your intention down as an affirmation.

This might sound extremely easy, but these 17 seconds must be filled by this singular thought. No other contradictions should come up during this time. 

If you have ever meditated on a singular mantra you’ll know how difficult this can be. Your mind is automatically prone to open many tabs.

“Don’t think of a unicorn”… what are you thinking of now?

When you try not to think about something, it’s almost impossible not to. So, you can imagine how challenging it is to hold a singular positive thought without anything else coming up. 

Is it possible? Absolutely yes!

But before you attempt the 17-second method…

Yes, while you can manifest anything with this 17 seconds method, you need to ensure that your energy matches what you’re asking for. 

For example, if one of your challenges you need to overcome in life is that you are not confident, but you turn to the law of attraction for a partner, you’re going to face a hard time making it work.

So, it’s probably best that you discover your challenges and set positive affirmations to help you overcome the cause of your problems.

How to Use the 17-second Rule?

The key to this method is practice. It’s a natural rule of thumb that the more you practice, the better you become. 

The more you practice, it’ll become easier to train your mind to focus on one thing without distractions. Just keep returning to the chosen thought until it becomes second nature. You’ll gain mastery by doing it consistently. 

Here’s a simple process to use this method effectively:

Get in a happy mood

It’s essential to feel happy and relaxed for this practice to work. I find it helpful to treat this ritual as your regular meditation, which means a positive experience helps you a lot.

I don’t recommend doing this method if you are feeling lacking, in a bad space, or not just great at all. You want your vibration to match the energy of what you want to manifest.

If you are feeling down, try recalling a happy memory that makes you feel energetic and puts a smile on your face. Or try taking deep breaths and repeat the mantras for peace, joy, and happiness.

There isn’t a one-size-fits-all way to do this. Just do what makes your headspace pleasant, happy, and relaxing to you

Choose a thought

What are you doing to focus on for the next 17 seconds? You need to have a positive thought and be on a high energetic level. Make sure you’re very clear and specific on what you want.

If you want to manifest money, think about the specific figure you want. If you want a text from someone, mention the name of the person.

Keep your thoughts simple, yet specific. 

Think about the things that make you happy. You can try to relieve and convince yourself that you are on the path to greatness. 

Remove all distractions

Avoid being distracted for the next 17 seconds. Even though this isn’t easy, you can train your mind through constant practice. 

Each time you think of a distracting thought, reset the timer and start over again. 

A great way to limit the noise in your mind is to find a relaxing and peaceful place where you can be alone for a couple of minutes. Put your phone on airplane mode, turn off all distractions, and ensure you are alone. 

Set the timer for 68 seconds with a 17-second segment

First, set the time for 17 seconds. You can use anything – your phone, clock, stopwatch, etc.

Now, focus intently on your desire for the duration of the timer. Hold your positive thoughts and try not to get distracted, or you’ll weaken your manifestation. 

If you find it difficult, that’s okay. 

It would help if you try to recall a happy feeling. Start by making your desire your single thought and allow it to get more detailed and intense for the next of the 51 seconds. 

Let it go and show gratitude to the universe

Show gratitude and thankfulness to the universe and set your manifestation free. 

How can you go from focusing intensely on something you desire to let go of suddenly?

Do something else. 

I like to break up my thoughts and do anything else that gets my mind off what I was previously thinking about. 

When we are thankful for the things we are manifesting, our vibrational energy demonstrates our worthiness to receive our desire. 


Will you try this method?

Now, I want you to know that thoughts aren’t enough to manifest your desire. There are many other factors involved in the law of attraction… such as visualization, believing, showing gratitude, etc.

Nonetheless, it’s a fun method to try and it can help you strengthen your meditation practice. You should go for it!

Keep an open mind, a grateful heart, then you’ll be on the path to manifesting success.

With love and light.

How to Cleanse Your Subconscious Mind

Are you doing everything you can to take control of your life, but somehow you feel stuck? Well, you can always reprogram your subconscious mind to align with your life’s purpose and achieve fulfillment and happiness. 

Your subconscious mind is way more powerful than you think. It’s constantly processing the world, taking notes, and shifting through experiences.

Throughout our lives, we have been exposed to several situations, beliefs, and behavior – both positive and negative. And most of the time, it no longer serves us nor helps us grow.

We end up getting frustrated, angry, and upset because we deserve better. What happens to these patterns that hold us back? It’s time to let them go. 

What if you took control and learned how to cleanse your subconscious mind to let go of unwanted thoughts? How breathtaking would it be to witness your life change right in front of your eyes? 

Your subconscious mind is the key to your success – and you can reprogram it. Follow me and take a look at how to cleanse your mind and start living the life you deserve. 

What’s Your Subconscious Mind?

Your subconscious mind is the part of the mind that gets up all the time without ‘us’ being active. Your subconscious mind stores every information, belief, and value, memory. This affects everything we say, think, and do – without us realizing it.

The subconscious mind learns through repetition. So, if it’s fed the same information multiple times, it engulfs it. Learning how to drive a car is a great example of how it works. When you first sat behind the wheels, you found it hard to maintain balance and move steadily. But you kept trying for five minutes, thirty minutes, and now you can drive for as long as you can. Because of the constant repetition and practice, your subconscious mind picks up what it takes to drive.

So, whenever you take a hold of the steering, your subconscious mind automatically remembers what you were thinking and without much effort, you start to drive.  

To live the life you desire, you have to take control of your life and leverage your subconscious mind. So what does it take to reprogram your subconscious mind?

Ways to Cleanse Your Subconscious Mind

Giving your mind a quick reboot when you feel stressed can help you get rid of the unwanted thoughts in your memory.

You can’t experience growth if you aren’t willing to drop old patterns of thinking that no longer serve you.

You can’t move forward without letting go and healing from past hurts and wounds.    

Your negative thoughts cannot create a happy life.

Not to worry, though – there are ways to cleanse your subconscious mind.

Practice Meditation 

Meditation helps you stay present and focused on what’s happening around you. It’ll drown the noise in your head, allowing you to examine yourself deeper.

When you take a deeper look at yourself, you’ll see your true self. 

The average human mind has about 50,000 new thoughts daily, which means you are constantly thinking every 1.2 seconds. It’s easy for random thoughts to creep in shifting you away from your priorities.  

Meditation is a way to detox your mind to help you maintain focus. When you practice meditation, you become aware of what’s happening in your life, enhancing your focus.

Mindfulness meditation can help boost mindfulness and relieve stress by teaching you how to acknowledge distracting thoughts and letting them go. 

When you meditate, tune in to your five senses and open your mind to what you can learn from a given situation. You’ll probably notice your thoughts drift occasionally. This is normal, so don’t beat yourself up. 

Talk About It

When your mind brims over a negative memory, it’s always better to talk about it than suppressing it. 

Saying your thoughts out loud makes it easier to explore them. It helps decrease intrusive thoughts and other mental clutter. 

For example, if you have a phobia for something, talk about it and try going as further as possible to where it all began. Was it something someone did to you? Did it happen in your childhood?

Once you start keeping track of your fears, you’ll be able to find the root problem and feel massively better. 

After a talking session, you might realize that those fears had no control over you. Now they’ve entered our conscious mind, you can address them. 

Say Positive Affirmations

 Your mind believes everything you say or think. This rule also applies to negative thoughts you have about yourself or your life.

To cleanse your subconscious mind and get rid of negative beliefs, reaffirm positive statements in your life. Positive affirmations have tremendous healing potential in your mind and can improve your mental health. 

All you have to do is sit comfortably, relax, and choose an affirmation you want to have as a core belief. For instance, if you feel sad often, try something like: I feel happy today and every day. My life is overflowing with joy and everything around me causes me to smile.


Your mind is your best friend. Everything you can imagine, you can bring to reality. 

How does this help you detox your subconscious mind?

Visualize the person you want to become one day. If confidence is a major issue for you, see yourself as a confident person now.

If you are having financial challenges, visualize yourself living in abundance. Keep your visualization positive and you can step up your game. 

Pay attention to as many details as possible. Observe how you feel in this imagined future and explore what your life looks like with the intention of being brought to life. 


You may not be able to restart your subconscious mind, but there are plenty of ways you can declutter and reboot it. 

The magic trick to making the above methods work for you is repetition. This means that everything you’ve been will only work if you’re consistent. So, keep doing it for a month, or two and you’re bound to see changes.

The Beauty Of Mantras In A Chaotic World

If I had a dollar each time I get asked if mantras are any good, I’d fill up a mansion with notes.

And if I put each note end-to-end I bet they’d make a path from Singapore to New York. 

This comes as a surprise to me – given the amount of celebrities that use them to handle their anxieties or de-stress. From singers like Katy Perry to Tv show hosts like Oprah Winfrey.

So when I got this question AGAIN last week, I figured I’d do justice to it. And lay out all the facts for you. 

I guess you can say this is your goodbye to confusion or anxiety. And a warm welcome to pure bliss.

Because if you wake up feeling overwhelmed with the way the world is, which is nothing short of chaotic – then you’ll find a soothing comfort in mantras.

We’ll also explore a variety of ways you can experience calmness within their presence.

If your spirit feels shaken, then mantras will help you feel revived. And we’ll be looking at a couple ways to do that.

Ready for a new beginning? Let’s dive in.

What Are Mantras And How Do They Affect You?

Once you get soaked in the blessings of mantras you can’t go back.

Mantras are words, syllables, phrases or sounds that penetrate the deeper parts of your mind and bring you profound energy.

It’s like going through a new form of awakening. 

So how do they work?

They send high vibrations throughout your body. Which allows you to feel peaceful, calmer and happier across your day.

For better results, repeat them so you train your mind and body to respond to it.

Think of mantras like cell phone numbers. Repeat them the right way, the right number of times, and you can call forth the right energy for your situation.

Whether it’s peace, happiness or even healing.

How To Use Mantras.

As a general rule,  mantras are meant to be repeated over and over again.

This adds weight to the power of your words. It also allows your mind and body to react positively the moment you say them.

For example, notice how you instinctively reach for your phone each time it rings? 

In the same way, you can program your mind to respond automatically to the magical sounds of mantras. 

The best way to achieve this is to repeat your mantras during meditation. Meditation provides the quiet, calming environment for mantras to thrive.

Here are a few more ways to use mantras:

1) Find a serene and comfortable environment. 

The last thing you want while saying your mantras is distraction. They pull your energy and focus from many sides making it hard to concentrate on your manifestations.

That’s why it’s important to find a place where you can shut the rest of the world out. No cell phones or humans harping about the latest reality show. 

It’s only you, fully present in the moment.

2) Relax Your Body And Smile.

Smiling has a unique way of lifting our mood. It forces a rush of positive emotions throughout your body.

Also, relaxing the muscles in your body releases tension. This makes you feel more present, and at ease.

Tension breeds fear, that’s why muscle relaxation and smiling are important to release it.

3) Focus On A Specific Part Of Your Body Or Mind

Mantras, like many parts of manifestation, are personal. This means you can adjust the sounds to your specific needs.

If a part of your body needs healing for example, shift your focus on it.

 Also, you can put your attention on a part of your soul that’s struggling or troubled.

Benefits Of Mantras.

When done right, mantras feel like a warm, reassuring hug from a friend.

Getting caught up in endless drama? Simply pull out your peace mantras to de-stress. 

Sick of feeling unhappy from your unbearable anxiety? There’s a bunch of happiness mantras waiting for you.

Whatever tough situation you’re going through, there’s always one to help you achieve a sense of calm, clarity and resilience.

Mantra for peace.

In the face of chaos nothing’s more reassuring than a mantra to keep ourselves sane.

Here are just a few ones you can try.

  1. a) I am peaceful

The mantra “Om Shanti” is one of the most powerful mantras you can use. Om means “I am” or “I have” while  Shanti means “peace”

To repeat them together, you can say “I am peaceful”

This is a good mantra when you feel overwhelmed with drama or problems in your life.

Here’s how you can use it in practice:

“I have peace in my life”

Mantra for confidence

Sometimes we feel unsure of ourselves. Like we’re good or doing enough.

These mantras will give you a new found belief in yourself to handle the toughest situations.

You’ll gain fresh insights about yourself. They’re all about helping you see yourself for who you truly are: a powerful, capable being.

  1. a) The “I am who I want to be” Mantra

This mantra is served from the Hindu mantra: “Ham Sah” which means “I am that”

When manifesting this is a great mantra for focusing on the kind of person you want to become.

All you have to do is say “I am that” before your desire. It’s important that this desire is more of a habit, character. Not material things like cars or houses.

Here’s how it would look in practice:

“I am a confident and positive person”

  1. b) The absolute mantra

There’s a deeper, more authentic version of yourself locked inside your mind. 

This mantra is useful when you want to connect to it. The Hindu version is “Om tat sat” meaning “absolute truth”

It’s very effective if you’re going through imposter syndrome. Or feel like you’re not being authentic with your family, friends or co-workers.

Think of situations where you’re afraid of being judged. Or wanting to please people. 

Here’s how it works in practice:

“I am expressing my most authentic self”

Mantra for self-love

Nothing beats self love, right? Truth is, nobody can love you more than you.

That’s why this mantra is incredibly powerful to forge a deep bond with yourself.

  1. a) I love myself

This one’s pretty straightforward.

Sometimes we get caught up in our mistakes or shortcomings. And this can make us hate ourselves whenever we slip up because of them.

But it’s important to take a step back so we can see that there’s much more to love – despite our imperfections.

The hindu mantra for this is “So Hum” which means “I am love”

Here’s how it is in practice:

“I am falling in love with myself each day”


“I give myself compassion

What’s the right mantra for you?

Every mantra is effective, but some perform better in specific situations.

It all depends on your personal circumstance, goals and desires.

Now that you’ve got a few to get started with, let’s see how to find the right fit for you.

Get personal.

Let’s kick things off with some self-reflection. What areas in your life do you wish to improve?

What bugs your mind everyday, keeping up all night?

That’s where you start from then work your way towards the mantras. You want to assign the right mantra to your appropriate desires.

This way, they’ll have greater effects in manifesting your desire

Stick to your mantras.

It’s important to integrate mantras into your manifestation routines.

This includes practices like meditations, visualizations, and affirmations.

Repetition is to manifestation what exercise is your body – a stronger, healthier version of you.

So if you want to grow into a powerful manifestor, then manifestation should be part of your daily habits.

Wrapping it up.

You just discovered how mantras can help you stay strong in a chaotic world.

A word of warning though, just knowing how to use mantras isn’t going to automatically bring you peace.

That’s because the key is that you need to take action on what you just learned. 

And that’s why I encourage you to go through each mantra, pick the right one for your situation, and then start practicing.

Because the sooner you do, the sooner you’ll start enjoying the soothing effect they possess.
