In this article, I want to share with you another kind of meditation, which is perfect for both – beginners and experienced practitioners. This meditation is mantra meditation. This type of meditation is based on mantras and it is a very powerful tool for self-transformation and self-development. But before I start talking about mantra meditation, I want to clear up what mantra is.

What Is Mantra?

In my article “What Is Mantra? Discover Three Types Of Mantras That Transform Reality” I have already written about what a mantra is. In this article, I’d like to continue my explanation.

The word “mantra” can be broken down into two parts: “man” and “tra”. “Man” means “mind”, and “tra” means “transport” or “vehicle”. In other words, a mantra is a tool of our mind – a powerful sound or vibration that we can use to enter a deep state of meditation, to connect with the Universe, and make our energy vibrate on the higher frequency.

Generally, a mantra is a syllable, word or sentence that is used in meditation to focus and free our mind and achieve a certain mental state.

Mantra is a sacred verbal formula that contains higher vibrational energy and information. It is able to transform our consciousness and help us in our spiritual development. Each mantra has its own meaning, purpose, and vibration.

The most powerful mantras are those that contain the names of Deities. It is believed that when we pronounce the names of Deities we enter into contact with them and activate their power which can help liberate and bless us.

Mantra’s Benefits

When we are using mantras for our meditations it helps us to enter a special state of consciousness in which we clear our mind from intrusive thoughts, images, emotions, and anxieties, that is, mantra practice helps to delve more deeply into a meditative state.

Moreover, each mantra carries a deep sacred meaning and purpose such as to bring health, love, prosperity, protection, peace, and joy into our lives. Being repeatedly chanted, mantras reveal their power and, connecting with the energy our intentions, are able to change our lives for the better.

In addition, the vibration of sound created by mantra affects our physical bodies. This manifests itself in relaxation, stress relief, energizing and strength.

Most Popular Mantras And Their Meanings

At the initial stage of the mastering of mantra meditation, it is better to use mantras that are not too complicated, the ones that are easier to remember and easy to chant. Here are some of the mantras that you can use for your mantra meditation.

Mala Beads

Mantra Chanting with Prayer beads image

When you’re practicing mantra meditation mala beads can be very helpful. Mala beads help to dive deeper into the meditative state and maintain concentration. And with the help of mala beads, it is convenient to count how many times you have already repeated the mantra.

Traditionally, a mantra is being repeated 108 or 1008 times during a meditation session.

Mala beads can be different. They are made of various types of wood, plastic, stone, glass, seeds and other materials. A number of beads also varies and depends on the religion they serve. Beads can have separators (larger beads that divide the beads into steps) and pendants (for example, a cross, OM symbol, Hamsa hand, etc.).

Interestingly, the regular usage of mala beads can help in the treatment of joints diseases. This is due to the fact that when you’re touching the beads with your fingers you activate fine motor skills of your fingers.

Recommendation For Your Mantra Meditation

Before you start performing a mantra meditation, I would like to give some recommendations that will help you to build your practice correctly.

#1 Pronounce all the sounds of the mantra clearly

Keep in mind, that every single sound and syllable of the mantra has a deep meaning. Therefore it is so important to correctly and clearly pronounce all the sounds of the mantra.

#2 Learn the mantra by heart

It is best to practice mantra meditation with your eyes closed. This will help you to relax and dive deeper into the meditative state. Therefore it’s best to learn the mantra by heart so you don’t need to read it from the piece of paper.

#3 Choose a mantra according to your intention

When working with the mantra, it is important to know what exactly you want to achieve. Imagine as if you have already achieved it. If you do not have a clear intention (abundance, love, health, etc.), then use universal mantras or mantras that you intuitively feel attracted to.

#4 Chant the mantra in accordance with your inner tempo and rhythm, steadily and quietly

The mantra should flow like a song – without any tension, discomfort or rejection.

Mantra Meditation

There are different techniques that you can use for performing mantra meditation. In this article, I want to share with you the four most popular ones. You can choose either one of these techniques or you can alternate or mix them. It’s totally up to you!

Mantra Meditation Techniques

#1 Chanting a mantra in your mind, in a whisper or aloud

This technique of mantra meditation is quite simple.

Before you start performing mantra chanting, choose a suitable mantra for yourself, memorize it and get your mala beads.

Take a comfortable position for your mantra meditation. Make sure to keep your spine straight. Take your mala beads and close your eyes.

According to the ancient tradition, you should hold the mala beads with the thumb and middle fingers of your right hand. Touch the beads with your thumb, and slightly twist each bead from side to side, the middle finger acts as a support. Do not touch the mala beads with your index finger.

Touch the first bead, say the mantra one time. Now, move the bead with your thumb and middle finger. Touch the second bead and say the mantra again. So you will go full circle, that is 108 times.

Come out of the meditation gradually. Open your eyes. Track your feelings and emotions. Stay a little more in this state.

#2 Chanting mantras with a concentration on the breath

Mala Beads Prayer Image

This technique is also very simple. Usually, people use the OM mantra for performing this technique.

So, take a comfortable position with your back being straight and close your eyes. As you inhale and exhale, say the OM mantra aloud or in your mind, stretching the sound for the entire inhale or exhale.

You can perform this technique by setting up the alarm or guided by internal sensations. You can use the mala beads to count the number of mantra repetitions. One inhalation and one exhalation count as one repetition.

#3 Mantra listening

Simple listening to mantras also has a beneficial effect. You can find online a huge number of video and audio recordings of mantras performed by various musicians. Just choose the one you like and use it for your mantra meditation.

Take a comfortable meditation pose (by sitting with your spine being straight or laying on your back). Close your eyes. Relax your body and focus on the mantra. You can stay in this position as long as you want. If you fall asleep, it’s ok. The mantra listening will relax you very deeply and you will wake up full of energy.

I often do this meditation when I put a face mask on my face. I need to keep the mask on my face for 15-20 minutes. So why to waste the time when I can use it for my spiritual benefits? I turn on the mantras, get comfortable, close my eyes, relax and rest. After this session, I feel very relaxed and joyful.

#4 Group mantra meditation

An example of such meditation is OM chanting.

In short, OM Chanting is a very ancient healing technique that is performed in a group and uses the cosmic vibration of OM sound to heal people and the planet.

When performing OM chanting collectively, the healing power of OM sound increases. Feelings, thoughts and negative energies dissolve, transform and change under the influence of the healing power of OM. Emotions get released. Inner peace, happiness, and love get attracted. This powerful meditation leads to a more joyful life, supports good health and helps achieve inner harmony.

Conclusion

Try different techniques of mantra meditation and soon you will definitely see wonderful results of this practice in your life and notice amazing inner transformation that will lead you to inner peace. Your emotional state will become calm and joyful. You will become a light that attracts good people and good luck.

30 High Vibe Affirmations To Start Your Day

Published

on

high vibe affirmations Image

High vibe affirmations is a wonderful tool for reprogramming our minds and our reality that is available to everyone and anytime. The first minutes after waking up is a perfect time to influence your day with transformative energy of positive affirmations. These first minutes of your morning have the power to set the mode of the rest of the day and attract into your life whatever your mind is focused on.

Just think about it – what if instead of checking your emails or scrolling the news feed, you consciously directed your thoughts in a way you want to see your life to be? What if you spent at least 10 minutes on reading and repeating affirmations that would make you vibrate higher so that you are not available energetically to any negativity that is happening in the world? Aah… your life would never be the same! It would simply turn into a masterpiece!

What Are High Vibe Affirmations?

High vibe affirmations are short phrases containing a verbal formula that, when repeated many times, elevates the vibrations of your subconscious, contributing to the improvement of your psycho-emotional background and stimulating positive changes in your life and wellbeing.

How Does This Work?

affirmations for health and vitality image

Every thought you think and every word you speak is an affirmation (whether you’re aware of it or not). All of your self-talk, your internal dialogue, is a stream of affirmations. You are affirming and creating your reality with every word you say and every thought you think.

You have to understand that every complaint is an affirmation of something you think you don’t want in your life. Every time you get angry, you are affirming that you want more anger in your life. Every time you say that you’re not feeling well, that you are sick, you’re affirming that. If you feel that Universe isn’t giving you the desired goods, events, people, etc., then it’s certain that you will never have that in your reality until you change the way you think and talk.

Our emotions are built by our thoughts. And our thoughts are based on our conscious or unconscious choices. With the help of high vibe affirmations, we can consciously form the desired reality by reconnecting with God, our Higher Selves, and the Universal Consciousness. It is only through this reunification that we can feel the Divine support in our lives. It’s as if we are guided through our lives by some Higher Power that protects us and solves all our problems.

Try to look at affirmations like seeds planted in soil. Poor soil provides poor growth. Rich soil gives abundant growth. The more you choose to think thoughts that make you feel good, the quicker the affirmations work and transform your reality.

6 Mystical Mantras to Elevate Your Consciousness

Published

on

6 mystical mantras image

Mantras have been around for over 3,000 years, but now they are having a mainstream moment. We meditate on them, tape them to our fridges and computers, pin them to our Pinterest boards, post them on Instagram. It’s becoming more and more natural for us to chant mantras while we attend a yoga class and listen to them while we’re driving. If you would like to welcome the mystical influence of mantras into your life, this article is for you! In this article, I’m going to share with you 6 mystical mantras that will help you to elevate your consciousness and raise your energy to a higher vibrational level.

What Is a Mantra?

The word mantra consists of two parts: “man,” which means mind, and “tra,” which means transport or vehicle. In other words, a mantra is an instrument of the mind. It is a powerful sound or vibration that you can use to enter a deep state of meditation.

Mantra can be compared with a seed that you plant in the fertile soil of practice. You nurture them and over time they bear the fruit of your intention.

As you may already know, words and sounds are a manifestation of energy vibrating at different frequencies. When we chant mantras, we align our energy with the energy of the Planet for the harmonious creation of a new (desired) reality that serves our Higher Self.

When mindfully chosen and correctly used, mantras have the ability to help alter your subconscious impulses, habits, and afflictions. Mantras, when spoken or chanted, direct the healing power of Prana (life force energy) and can be used to energize and access spiritual states of consciousness.

Choosing a Personal Mantra

We all have different paths, different purposes, intentions, and goals. Therefore, it is so important to mindfully choose a mantra that personally appeals to you. Before you choose one, make sure to attentively read the description and underlying meaning of each of the 6 mystical mantras below. Listen to your heart and choose one that appeals to you on a deep level.

6 Mystical Mantras

#1: OM Mantra

It is believed that Om is the first sound of the Universe. When chanted this mystical mantra vibrates at the frequency of 432 Hz. It is the same frequency as all things throughout nature. When we’re chanting the Om mantra, it aligns us with the vibrations of the Universe and connects us to nature and the planet.

Om chanting will help you focus and clear your mind. When chanting the Om mantra, your mind becomes aligned with the breath, which enables you to get into an elevated state of consciousness called samadhi.

#2: Om Mani Padme Hum

Om Mani Padme Hum is a six-syllable mantra associated with the bodhisattva – Avalokitesvara, the Buddha of compassion. This mantra is usually translated to mean The Jewel Is In The Lotus. It is believed to be one of the most powerful mantras, such that even saying it a single time can be enough for an experienced disciple to release negative karma and achieve enlightenment.

Om: purifies pride

Ma: purifies jealousy

Ni: purifies passion and desire

Pad: purifies ignorance and prejudice

Me: purifies possessiveness

Hum: purifies hatred

Om Mani Padme Hum mantra contains all the Buddhism principles in a summarized form. Therefore, when chanting it, you align yourself with these principles, thus elevate your consciousness to higher frequencies.

#3: Om Namah Shivaya

It is believed that the five syllables of the Om Namah Shivaya mantra contain the energy of the entire universe. This mantra consists of five syllables that represent the five primary elements:

Na: represents Earth element

Mah: represents Water element

Shi: represents Fire element

Va: represents Air element

Ya: represents Ether element

These five syllables also relate to the chakras – from Muladhara to Vishuddha.

Chanting this mantra purifies our energy and promotes inner transformation. It helps you relax and unwind. Your restless mind becomes stable.

Also, the Om Namah Shivaya mantra helps you to gain control over your senses and govern your mind. 

The regular chanting of the Om Namah Shivaya mantra gives you a sense of direction and purpose in life. 

#4: Sat Nam

Sat Nam is a bija mantra – a one-syllable sound that activates the chakras.  Sat means truth, the reality of human existence. Nam means identity. Together, Sat Nam can be translated as: “I am the truth,” or “Truth is my essence.”

Thus, the Sat Nam mantra is all about revealing and fully expressing your true identity. It reminds you that no one else can express the exact combination of frequencies that you do. Through chanting this mystical mantra you connect yourself to the universal truth and become a tool of its expression. Eventually, you come to a deep realization that your unique vibration is needed for the universe to be complete.

As I mentioned before, the Sat Nam mantra is a seed mantra. The seed contains all the knowledge of the tree that has reached its full flowering. It is the identity of the truth, embodied in a condensed form.

#5: Ra Ma Da Sa Sa Say So Hung

This is a healing mantra that attunes the “Self” to the Universe and brings balance. These eight sounds stimulate the flow of Kundalini in the spine, bringing healing.

Ra: means Sun. When you connect with the frequency of this sacred sound, it gives you energy.

Ma: means Moon. The frequency of this sacred sound aligns you with receptivity.

Da: means Earth. This frequency helps your grounding.

Sa: means Impersonal Infinity. When chanting this sound, your energy rises upwards and outwards drawing in the healing of the Universe.

Sa Say: Means Totality of Infinity. When chanting Sa a second time, you pull the energy of Infinity into you.

So: Personal sense of merger and identity.

Hung: The infinite, vibrating and real.

So Hung together means, I am Thou.

When chanted regularly, this mystical mantra brings balance into the core of your energetic body and floods it with new energy.

#6: Gobinday Mukanday Udharay Aparay Hariang Kariang Nirnamay Akamay

This mystical mantra is called the Guru Gaitri mantra. It is a powerful tool to clear the subconscious mind and deep-seated blocks.  

Gobinday means Sustaining

Mukanday means Liberating

Udharay means Enlightening

Aparay means Infinite

Hariang means Destroying

Kariang means Creating

Nirnamay means Nameless

Akamay means Desireless

Regular practice of this mantra is able to eliminate karmic blocks and mistakes of the past. Its power clears our magnetic field, allowing us to relax more easily. This mystical mantra purifies the subconscious mind and balances the hemispheres of the brain, communicating compassion and patience to those who meditate on it.

The Bottom Line

Take your time to think and feel which one of the 6 mystical mantras resonates deeply with your purpose and intentions in this period of your life. Start practicing your mantra with listening, and then start repeating. When you’re listening to your mystical mantra and repeating it, its sacred sounds penetrate into your subtle bodies and elevate your consciousness.

Mahamrityunjaya Mantra: Powerful Death Conquering Mantra That Works Miracles

Published

on

Mahamrityunjaya Mantra Meaning Image

Mahamrityunjaya Mantra is also known as Death Conquering Mantra, or the Tryambakam Mantra is a verse of the Rigveda. This mantra literally works wonders – stops the development of serious illnesses, rejuvenates the aging body, relieves depression, and anxiety. Mahamrityunjaya Mantra helps in the most hopeless cases when nothing else could help.

During the uncertain times of 2020 we all are looking for hope, relief, and protection. That’s why I decided to write this article! It comes time when we all are looking for a miracle. And this powerful mantra can help you with this!

In this article, I will share with you what Mahamrityunjaya Mantra is, its meaning, benefits, and give you very important recommendations on how to practice it.

The Origin

According to one of the Indian legends, the Mrityunjaya mantra is associated with the name of Markandeya, a sage who wrote the Markandeya Purana. Markandeya was destined to die when he reached the age of 16, but thanks to his sincere love and devotion to Lord Shiva, he received this incredibly powerful mantra and was able to avoid his death.

Now let me share with you this beautiful story.

Markandeya Image

In ancient times, when people had a strong connection with the gods and they could appear to them in the flesh, a righteous couple lived in the forest: Mrikandu Rishi and his wife Marudmati. They had no children and performed long austerities in the hope of gaining virtue and giving birth to a child.

One day their prayers were so strong that Lord Shiva himself stood before them. After listening to the request of the couple, he gave them a choice of either a righteous son, but with a short life on Earth or a child of low intelligence but with a long life. Mrikandu Rishi chose the former and was blessed with Markandeya, an exemplary son, destined to die at the age of sixteen years old.

Markandeya grew up to be a great devotee of Shiva and on the day of his destined death, he continued his worship of Shiva in his aniconic form of Shivalingam. The messengers of Yama, the god of death, were unable to take away his life because of his great devotion and continual worship of Shiva.

Then Yama himself came in person to take away Markandeya’s life and sprung his noose around the young sage’s neck. By accident or fate, the noose mistakenly landed around the Shivalingam, and out of it, Shiva emerged in all his fury attacking Yama for his act of aggression.

After defeating Yama in the battle to the point of death, Shiva then revived him, under the condition that the devout youth would live forever. For this act, Shiva was thereafter also known as Kalantaka (“Ender of Death”).

The other Gods were worried that Yama’s death would disrupt the order of the Universe, and they begged Shiva to restore their underground ruler to life. Shiva agreed but said that it was Markandeya’s devotion that protected him, and therefore he blesses Him with eternal youth and gave this young yogi a healing mantra.

So Markandeya remained a 16-year-old Saint forever, and the Mahamrityunjaya mantra became a magical elixir for those who are devoted to God and crave spiritual and physical healing.

Mahamrityunjaya Mantra is also known as the “Death Conquering Mantra”. It is one of the most ancient and powerful mantras of the Vedic era, which has come down to us through the millennia.

The power of this mantra is very great, life-giving, and healing. It can protect against incurable diseases, accidents of all kinds, various influences, both from outside and from within, helps to purify the subtle and physical body if it is chanted with sincerity and faith.

It is called the Great mantra that grants long life, peace, stability, well-being, satisfaction, and even immortality.

Shukracharya received this mantra from Lord Shiva as a reward for austerity. Its great power made him even able to revive the dead.

The Effect Of Mahamrityunjaya Mantra

Mahamrityunjaya Mantra Image

In India, the Mahamrityunjaya mantra is considered one of the most powerful and important mantras.

It is recommended to chant these sacred words in the following cases:

  • severe illness;
  • difficult life circumstances;
  • in the face of danger;
  • in other situations that require the intervention of the Higher powers.

But the main effect of this mantra is a huge internal change that a person experiences. The Sacred words chanted repeatedly in order to get healing or get rid of physical problems, actively affect the soul. It leads to a big boost in spiritual development and the evolution of the soul.

The regular practice of Mahamrityunjaya mantra will help you to realize your true purpose in this life — the elevation of the spiritual principle.

Having come into contact with death, a person begins to realize the meaning of Eternity. Things that he hadn’t thought about before will come to the forefront of his thoughts and reflections. This is the kind of awareness and self-realization Mahamrityunjaya mantra practice brings.

It is recommended to chant this mantra when a child is born and it is chanted annually on the birthday. It is believed that the recitation of this sacred formula gives a person eternal life.

Swami Sivananda recommended that everyone devote a significant amount of time to practicing the Mahamrityunjaya mantra on their birthday. He said that such a practice brings:

To prevent diseases, the mantra should be practiced daily for 2-3 months. Chant or listen to the death conquering mantra 108 times in one session.

However, we should not forget that the Higher powers do not help a person who has impure intentions. You must purify your soul from any evil, forgive insults, correct your attitude to the world and people. Only in this case will the Mahamrityunjaya mantra bring the desired effect.

Mahamrityunjaya Mantra

Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra Image

Now let me share with you this powerful mantra:

OM. Tryambakam yajamahe
Sugandhim pushti-vardhanam
Urvarukamiva bandhanan
Mrityor mukshiya mamritat

Mahamrityunjaya Mantra in Sanskrit:

उ॒र्वा॒रु॒कमि॑व॒ बन्ध॑नान् मृ॒त्योर्मुक्षीय॒ मा ऽमृता॑त् ।

Mahamrityunjaya Mantra Meaning

“We worship the three-eyed One, who is fragrant and who nourishes all.
Like the fruit falls off from the bondage of the stem, may we be liberated from death, from mortality.”

Translation

Word-by-word meaning of the Mahamrityunjaya Mantra is as follows:

ॐ – OM – represents a combination of the three pure sounds that signify the holy body, speech, and mind.

त्र्यम्बकम् – tryambakam – the three-eyed one (accusative case)

त्रि – tri – “three”

अम्बक – ambaka – “eye”

यजामहे – yajāmahe – “we worship, we sacrifice”

सुगन्धिम् – sugandhim – “the fragrant, the virtuous, the supreme being”

पुष्टिवर्धनम् – puṣṭi + vardhanam – “the bestower of nourishment, wealth, perfection”, literally “him who possesses the growth of nourishment”

पुष्टि – puṣṭi – “nourishment, increase, wealth, perfection”

वर्धन – vardhana = “increase, growth”

उर्वारुकम् – urvārukam – “fruit”

इव – iva = “as”

मुक्षीय – mukṣīya – “may I be freed/released”

मा ऽमृतात् – mā ‘mṛtāt – “not (mā) from immortality (amṛtāt)”

How To Practice Mahamrityunjaya Mantra?

Mahamrityunjaya Mantra can be recited on three levels:

  • physical;
  • energetical;
  • mental.

Physical Level

On the physical level, the mantra is pronounced in a loud voice so that the body starts vibrating. Internal vibrations are created by the chant activate every cell of the body. The vibration of the sacred words destroys the energy blocks in the body, neutralizing the negative energy stored in the memory of cells. The cells that have the disease recorded in their memory become clean and healthy again.

Most of the negative programs that cause internal diseases are recorded in the memory of cells from childhood. These programs affect the subconscious mind of the person, causing mental pain and blocks. Over time, the program of destruction takes the form of a disease. Mahamrityunjaya mantra destroys these pathological structures and literally frees the body from blocks, so healing occurs.

Energy Level

The energy level of Mahamrityunjaya Mantra practice is the repetition of sacred words in a whisper. This practice is called Japa.

Whispered words have an effect on the energy structure of a person, changing the energy background.

The energy structure of a person is organized by the chakras — 7 energy centers. Whispered words open the chakras, freeing them from blocks. As a result, the energy can function freely along the chakra column, creating a reserve of energy resources inside the body.

Mental Level

The mental level Mahamrityunjaya mantra practice acts on the subconscious mind of a person, in which the fixed mental blocks are stored. Scientists have long proven that diseases have roots in the human psyche. Mahamrityunjaya mantra removes mental blocks, thereby freeing the body from the cause of diseases. It helps a person to free himself from:

  • obsessive stereotypes;
  • destructive programs of the subconscious mind;
  • psychological blocks and clamps.

By freeing itself from the causes of diseases, the body activates its defenses for self-healing and renewal.
