What Is Mantra? Discover Three Types Of Mantras That Transform Reality

Published

do you really know what mantra is image

Mantra is one of the most popular words in the spiritual community. But do we really understand its meaning? What is mantra?

Unfortunately, many people have a misleading understanding of what mantra is. It is very common that people associate mantras with religion or gods. And when they practice reading or singing mantras they usually put in this practice religious beliefs.

In fact, mantra (as well as yoga, for example) doesn’t belong to any religion. Despite the fact that mantras are actively used by religions.

So what is mantra? Let’s leave the religious aspect of the mantras alone, and talk about their original true sense.

What Is Mantra?

Every mantra represents the “thread” of existence, from which is “woven” all the individual manifestation of the Universe.

Every reality is supported by relevant principles or frequencies, which are a match to this reality. We are all researchers of the “fabric” of life. A feature of the mantras is that they are components of all levels, all realities that comprise life in the Universe.

For example, there are certain Principles of Divinity. These Principles support the reality of Divine being living in a physical body, can express his Divinity in a human physical body, and not participate in “human games” of the less developed reality.

Mantras relate to all levels and dimensions of life in the Universe. These Ancient principles are the notes of the Symphony of individualized manifestations of life.

Every man (whether he knows it or not) builds his life according to certain principles. Those people who build their own reality consciously, as principles of their work, choose mantras.

So what is mantra? Mantra is a sound/combination of sounds that creates reality.

According to the Bible, God announced the existence of Light, which led to its appearance – “And God said, “Let there be Light!“. Thus, we see that the Light was created by Sound.

Since each person possesses the Divine Creative principle, each of us is able to create own reality (Light) with Mantra (Sound).

There are three kinds of mantras:

1. Affirmation

Affirmation is the closest to the physical plane sound that is expressed in a short phrase containing a verbal formula that is repeated many times, fixes the desired image or set in the subconsciousness, stimulating positive changes in life. When you’re working with affirmations you need to understand their sense and put your energy in every word.

2. Mantras in Sanskrit/Hebrew

Mantras in Sanskrit/Hebrew – is a combination of certain energies in the form of Sound. The repetition of a mantra awakens the energies inside and outside.

A mantra is a Sound that purifies our mind, our consciousness and adjusts our reality in the desired way. That is why it is so important the accuracy of pronouncing the mantras and to put your intention in your practice.

Mantras in Sanskrit work even if you don’t understand their exact meaning, because the Sound of mantras works with our subconscious mind and etheric bodies.

The letters of the Sanskrit (like Hebrew) are “root sounds”, which vibration has great power. That is why most of the mantras consist of the letters of the Sanskrit or Hebrew.

Some people think that by singing mantra they are worshiping Hindu Gods. If we look at mantras out of the religious aspect, we will see that mantra is an invitation of certain kind of divine energy.

For example, religions take Lakshmi, KaliTara, Durga, Sarasvati as Goddesses. And they really are Goddesses, but not literally. All Gods and Goddesses from different religions are different kinds of divine energy. For example, Lakshmi is divine abundance energy.

3. The mantra of the Highest Order

The purpose of this mantra is to merge with the Will of Infinity. These Mantras represent Sacred Sounds of Infinity. Through the pronouncing of these Mantras, we merge the physical world and Higher Dimensions. These Mantras transform physical reality through reunion with the center of the Universe.

The mantras of the Highest Order help us in manifesting only if the realizations of our desires (intentions) will benefit not only us personally but also the entire Universe.

When and what mantras to practice?

Affirmations and prayers – you can practice when you need to correct your reality, set it up in the right way; to attract the resources for satisfying your individual needs.

meditating woman image

Mantras in Sanskrit/Hebrew – you can practice when you want to align your energy with the energy of the Planet for the harmonious creation of a new (desired) reality that serves your Higher Self.

By using this category of mantras you can implement only those desires that serve your development. And those desires that do not serve your Higherself will be transformed in a way that will be useful for your development.

The mantras of the Highest Order – you can practice when you have the desire to help the development of the Universe through the realization of your desires (intentions).

But in this case, don’t expect quick changes on the physical plane, because the main changes will occur at the Highest Dimensions.

Personally, I practice all three types of mantras because I believe that this is the best way to help my multidimensional development. But it’s really up to you what mantras to choose for your practice. Trust your own feelings and choose those ones that resonate with you.

Thich Nhat Hanh Quotes

#1

“When another person makes you suffer, it is because he suffers deeply within himself, and his suffering is spilling over. He does not need punishment; he needs help. That’s the message he is sending.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

#2

Thich Nhat Hanh image

“Walk as if you are kissing the Earth with your feet.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

#3

“Touching the present moment, we realize that the present is made of the past and is creating the future.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

#4

“To dwell in the here and now does not mean you never think about the past or responsibly plan for the future. The idea is simply not to allow yourself to get lost in regrets about the past or worries about the future. If you are firmly grounded in the present moment, the past can be an object of inquiry, the object of your mindfulness and concentration. You can attain many insights by looking into the past. But you are still grounded in the present moment.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

#5

“The seed of suffering in you may be strong, but don’t wait until you have no more suffering before allowing yourself to be happy.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

#6

“Sometimes we don’t need to eat or drink as much as we do, but it has become a kind of addiction. We feel so lonely. Loneliness is one of the afflictions of modern life. It is similar to the Third and Fourth Precepts – we feel lonely, so we engage in conversation, or even in a sexual relationship, hoping that the feeling of loneliness will go away. Drinking and eating can also be the result of loneliness. You want to drink or overeat in order to forget your loneliness, but what you eat may bring toxins into your body. When you are lonely, you open the refrigerator, watch TV, read magazines or novels, or pick up the telephone to talk. But unmindful consumption always makes things worse.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

#7

“Happiness is available. Please help yourself to it.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

#8

Thich Nhat Hanh quote image

“Our own life has to be our message.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

#9

“When you plant lettuce, if it does not grow well, you don’t blame the lettuce. You look for reasons it is not doing well. It may need fertilizer or more water, or less sun. You never blame the lettuce. Yet if we have problems with our friends or family, we blame the other person. But if we know how to take care of them, they will grow well, like the lettuce. Blaming has no positive effect at all … That is my experience. No blame, no reasoning, no argument, just understanding. If you understand, and you show that you understand, you can love, and the situation will change.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

#10

“Breathing in, I calm body and mind. Breathing out, I smile. Dwelling in the present moment I know this is the only moment.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

#11

“If you live without awareness it is the same as being dead. You cannot call that kind of existence being alive. Many of us live like dead people because we live without awareness. We carry our dead bodies with us and circulate throughout the world. We are pulled into the past or we are pulled forward into the future or we are caught by our projects or our despair and anger. We are not truly alive; we are not inhabited by awareness of the miracle of being alive.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

#12

“Because you are alive, everything is possible.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

#13

“In Asia, we say that there are three sources of energy – sexual, breath, and spirit…You need to know how to reestablish the balance, or you may act irresponsibly. According to Taoism and Buddhism, there are practices to help reestablish that balance, such as meditation or martial arts. You can learn the ways to channel your sexual energy into deep realizations in the domains of art and meditation.

The second source of energy is khi, breath energy. Life can be described as a process of burning. In order to burn, every cell in our body needs nutrition and oxygen… Some people cultivate their khi by refraining from smoking and talking, or by practicing conscious breathing after talking a lot…

The third source of energy is spirit energy. When you don’t sleep at night, you lose some of this kind of energy. Your nervous system becomes exhausted and you cannot study or practice meditation well, or make good decisions. You don’t have a clear mind because of lack of sleep or from worrying too much. Worry and anxiety drain this source of energy. So don’t worry. Don’t stay up too late. Keep your nervous system healthy. Prevent anxiety. These kinds of practices cultivate the third source of energy.

You need this source of energy to practice meditation well. A spiritual breakthrough requires the power of your spirit energy, which comes about through concentration and knowing how to preserve this source of energy. When you have strong spirit energy, you only have to focus it on an object, and you will have a breakthrough. If you don’t have them the light of your concentration will not shine brightly, because the light emitted is very weak.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

#14

“People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don’t even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child – our own two eyes. All is a miracle.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

#15

“In true love, there is no pride.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

#16

Drink Your Tea Slowly Image

“Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the world earth revolves – slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

#17

“We often think of peace as the absence of war, that if powerful countries would reduce their weapon arsenals, we could have peace. But if we look deeply into the weapons, we see our own minds – our own prejudices, fears, and ignorance. Even if we transport all the bombs to the moon, the roots of war and the roots of bombs are still there, in our hearts and minds, and sooner or later we will make new bombs. To work for peace is to uproot war from ourselves and from the hearts of men and women. To prepare for war, to give millions of men and women the opportunity to practice killing day and night in their hearts, is to plant millions of seeds of violence, anger, frustration, and fear that will be passed on for generations to come. ” – Thich Nhat Hanh

#18

“Many people think excitement is happiness… But when you are excited you are not peaceful. True happiness is based on peace.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

#19

“If you look deeply into the palm of your hand, you will see your parents and all generations of your ancestors. All of them are alive in this moment. Each is present in your body. You are the continuation of each of these people.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

#20

“Smile, breathe and go slowly.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

#21

“We will not just say, “I love him very much,” but instead, “I will do something so that he will suffer less.” The mind of compassion is truly present when it is effective in removing another person’s suffering.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

#22

Thich Nhat Hanh Awareness Quote Image

“If you touch one thing with deep awareness, you touch everything.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

#23

“The Three Kinds of Pride are:
1) thinking I am better than the other(s);
2) thinking I am worse than the other(s);
3) thinking I am just as good as the other(s).”
– Thich Nhat Hanh

#24

“I am determined to practice deep listening. I am determined to practice loving speech.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

#25

“Due to attachment, anger, and foolishness, I have committed numberless mistakes in speech, deed, and thought. I bow my head and repent. I vow from today to begin anew, to live day and night in mindfulness, and not to repeat my previous mistakes.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

#26

“But sharing does not mean wanting others to abandon their own spiritual roots and embrace your faith. That would be cruel. People are stable and happy only when they are firmly rooted in their own tradition and culture. To uproot them would make them suffer. There are already enough people uprooted from their tradition today, and they suffer greatly, wandering around like hungry ghosts, looking for something to fill their spiritual needs. We must help them return to their tradition. Each tradition must establish a dialogue with its own people first, especially with those young people who are lost and alienated.

During the last fifteen years, while sharing the Buddha’s Dharma in the West, I always urged my Western friends to go back to their own traditions and rediscover the values that are there, those values they have not been able to touch before. The practice of Buddhist meditation can help them do so, and many have succeeded. Buddhism is made of non-Buddhist elements. Buddhism has no separate self. When you are a truly happy Christian, you are also a Buddhist. And vice versa.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

#27

“I would not look upon anger as something foreign to me that I have to fight… I have to deal with my anger with care, with love, with tenderness, with nonviolence.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

#28

“It is possible to live happily in the here and now. So many conditions of happiness are available – more than enough for you to be happy right now. You don’t have to run into the future in order to get more.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

#29

“As long as you find something beautiful, good, and true to believe in and abide by, you have the equivalent of God in your life.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

#30

“One of the greatest gifts we can offer people is to embody nonattachment and nonfear. This is true teaching, more precious than money or material resources. Many of us are very afraid, and this fear distorts our lives and makes us unhappy. We cling to objects and to people like a drowning person clings to a floating log. Practicing to realize nondiscrimination, to see the interconnectedness and impermanence of all things, and to share this wisdom with others, we are giving the gift of nonfear. Everything is impermanent. This moment passes. That person walks away. Happiness is still possible.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

#31

Thich Nhat Hanh Compassion Quote Image

“Root out the violence in your life, and learn to live compassionately and mindfully. Seek peace. When you have peace within, real peace with others is possible.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

#32

“We are very good at preparing to live, but not very good at living. We know how to sacrifice ten years for a diploma, and we are willing to work very hard to get a job, a car, a house, and so on. But we have difficulty remembering that we are alive in the present moment, the only moment there is for us to be alive.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

#33

“Don’t do any task in order to get it over with. Resolve to do each job in a relaxed way, with all your attention. Enjoy and be one with your work.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

#34

“Every person is a world to explore.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

#35

“At any moment, you have a choice, that either leads you closer to your spirit or further away from it.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

#36

In modern life, people think that their body belongs to them and they can do anything they want to it. When they make such a determination, the law supports them. This is one of the manifestations of individualism. But, according to the teachings of emptiness, non-self, and interbeing, your body is not yours alone. It also belongs to your ancestors, your parents, future generations, and all other living beings. Everything, even the trees, and the clouds have come together to bring about the presence of your body.

Keeping your body healthy is the best way to express your gratitude to the whole cosmos, to all ancestors, and also not to betray future generations. You practice this precept for everyone. If you are healthy, everyone can benefit from it. When you are able to get out of the shell of your small self, you will see that you are interrelated to everyone and everything, that your every action is linked with the whole of humankind and the whole cosmos. To keep yourself healthy in body and mind is to be kind to all beings. The Fifth Precept is about health and healing.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

#37

“Usually when we hear or read something new, we just compare it to our own ideas. If it is the same, we accept it and say that it is correct. If it is not, we say it is incorrect. In either case, we learn nothing.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

#38

Thich Nhat Hanh peace quote image

“If we are peaceful, if we are happy, we can smile and blossom like a flower, and everyone in our family, our entire society, will benefit from our peace.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

#39

“Compassion is a verb.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

#40

“Feelings, whether of compassion or irritation, should be welcomed, recognized, and treated on an absolutely equal basis; because both are ourselves. The tangerine I am eating is me. The mustard greens I am planting are me. I plant with all my heart and mind. I clean this teapot with the kind of attention I would have were I giving the baby Buddha or Jesus a bath. Nothing should be treated more carefully than anything else. In mindfulness, compassion, irritation, mustard green plant, and teapot are all sacred.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

#41

“There is no enlightenment outside of daily life.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

#42

“When an unpleasant feeling, physical or mental, arises in him, the wise man does not worry, complain, weep, pound his chest, pull his hair, torture his body and mind, or faint. He calmly observes his feeling and is aware that it is only a feeling. He knows that he is not the feeling, and he is not caught by the feeling. Therefore, the pain cannot bind him. When he has a painful physical feeling, he knows that there is a painful physical feeling. He does not lose his calmness, does not worry, does not fear, and does not complain. Thus the feeling remains a painful physical feeling, and it is not able to grow and ravage his whole being.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

#43

“Until there is peace between religions, there can be no peace in the world.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

#44

“In modern society, most of us don’t want to be in touch with ourselves; we want to be in touch with other things like religion, sports, politics, a book – we want to forget ourselves. Anytime we have leisure, we want to invite something else to enter us, opening ourselves to the television and telling the television to come and colonize us.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

#45

“In true dialogue, both sides are willing to change.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

#46

“You are what you want to become. Why search anymore? You are a wonderful manifestation. The whole universe has come together to make your existence possible. There is nothing that is not you. The kingdom of God, the Pure Land, nirvana, happiness, and liberation are all you.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

#47

Thich Nhat Hanh saying image

“Every thought you produce, anything you say, any action you do, it bears your signature.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

#48

“Aware of the suffering caused by unmindful speech and failure to listen, I am committed to cultivating loving speech and compassionate listening to relieve suffering and promote reconciliation and peace in myself and among other people, ethnic and religious groups, and nations. Knowing that words can create happiness or suffering, I am committed to speaking truthfully using words that inspire confidence, joy, and hope. I am determined not to speak when anger manifests in me. I will practice mindful breathing and walking to recognize and look deeply into my anger.

I know that the roots of anger can be found in my wrong perceptions and lack of understanding of the suffering in myself and the other person. I will speak and listen in such a way as to help myself and the other person to transform suffering and see the way out of difficult situations. I am determined not to spread the news that I do not know to be certain and not to utter words that can cause division or discord. I will practice diligently with joy and skillfulness so as to nourish my capacity for understanding, love, and inclusiveness, gradually transforming the anger, violence, and fear that lie deep in my consciousness.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

#49

“Take my hand. We will walk. We will only walk. We will enjoy our walk without thinking of arriving anywhere.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

#50

“When we recognize that we have a habit of replaying old events and reacting to new events as if they were the old ones, we can begin to notice when that habit energy comes up. We can then gently remind ourselves that we have another choice. We can look at the moment as it is, a fresh moment, and leave the past for a time when we can look at it compassionately.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

This documentary shows how wonderful it is when you have a great mission and purpose in life. And when there is a goal to change the world for the better, then the right people will always find you.

If you remember history, there were many other peaceful revolutionaries. If we talk about religion, Jesus was one of them too. So this movie is about history, about inspiration, about the power of the human spirit, about the purity of the heart, but NOT about religion.

#5 Wild Wild Country, TV series

#8 Walk With Me, 2017

“Walk With Me” is a meditative film about a community of Zen Buddhist monks and nuns who have dedicated their lives to mastering the art of mindfulness with their world-famous teacher Thich Nhat Hanh.

Cooling to the mind and soothing to the spirit, this documentary offers a tiny oasis of relief to anyone overheated by current events. When you feel like freaking out, the movie’s commitment to slowing down and drawing inward doesn’t seem like such a bad idea.

The Bottom Line

Spiritual Teachers belong to different faiths and traditions, but they all have one thing in common – the desire to help people.

Guru is an ocean of knowledge. And in this ocean, one disciple chooses stones and the other pearls, and this choice depends on the disciple. Therefore, listening to the advice of a spiritual teacher, always remember that the final choice is always yours. We ourselves determine which knowledge resonates with us and which does not. That is why we and only we are responsible for our personal spiritual development.

Every Woman Should Consider A Throat Chakra Healing! Here Is Why

Published

on

Throat Chakra Healing Image

For women, the throat chakra is one of the most problematic areas. That’s why every woman needs to consider a throat chakra healing.

Why Do Women Have Blocks In Their Throat Chakras?

From time immemorial, women have never been welcomed to express their feelings, emotions, or opinions, – it has always been the prerogative of men. For women, oratory was considered a disadvantage rather than a virtue. The advantage of women was the ability to remain silent, to suppress the desire to speak and express themselves. Whether we like it or not, the block in the throat chakra is passed on to us, women, at the genetic level from generation to generation.

When the inner truth is not spoken aloud but is suppressed, the creative energy (CHA) cannot be manifested. And when the energy is blocked, it becomes a destructive force (SO).

Common Reasons of  the Blocks In Women’s Throat Chakras

no profanity image

I noticed that nowadays many women can’t discuss their true feelings, which undoubtedly leads to the blocking of the throat chakra.

Another reason for the imbalance or blockage in the throat chakra is dysfunction of the thyroid gland. The mental reason for this is the lack of creative realization, the inability, and fears of self-expression. This is why women have more frequent thyroid problems than men. Men are easier to implement themselves using a business that actually is their “creativity”.

The third most common reason for the throat chakra problem is criticism. Women tend to criticize themselves as well as others. This can cause a cough or even asthma.

Fear to express your truth, feelings, and emotions also can affect the condition of the gums and teeth. A suppressed desire to speak can cause pain and inflammation in the gums and the sensitivity of your teeth.

Why Is the Throat Chakra So Important?

Vishuddha (throat chakra) is responsible for communication with other people and for creative self-expression. This is where inspiration and personal development begin. This chakra also gives us the ability to listen and hear – not only other people but also our own inner voice.

Vishuddha Chakra Test Image

The throat chakra is located in the larynx, at the base of the neck.

These are the signs of imbalanced Vishuddha:

– difficulty in expressing thoughts;
– fear of public speaking;
profanity;
– grumbling;
– lie;
– criticism, condemnation of yourself and others.

Now let’s talk about how to do a throat chakra healing.

7 Ways To Do A Throat Chakra Healing

1. Mantra Chanting

The throat chakra is associated with sound through speech and music. Any word that is spoken aloud creates vibrations in the surrounding world. These vibrations can be beneficial or harmful. It all depends on the intentions and desires with which the words were spoken.

Vishuddha chakra mantra sounds like “HAM”.

When you’re chanting the mantra you need to feel the vibration in the area of your throat chakra.

To perform HAM mantra for your throat chakra healing you need to:

  1. take a deep breath;
  2. at the moment of exhalation, open your lips and sing the beginning of the mantra: “ha-a-a…»;
  3. close your lips and sing the ending: “m-m-m-m»;
  4. then take another breath and repeat the cycle.

While singing the mantra feel the expanding of the throat chakra. Visualize that the neck and throat are filled with pure blue light. Continue for at least 5 minutes.

At the end of the exercise, you will feel the energy pulsating in the neck area. It is a sign of the throat chakra activation.

2. Yantra Meditation

Yantra is a unique mystical symbol used for meditation. Yantra for Vishuddha chakra is a triangle pointing downwards. Inside the triangle, there is a circle. For your throat chakra healing, it is very powerful to do a Vishuddha yantra meditation.

Vishuddha Yantra Meditation

For performing a Vishuddha Yantra meditation you need a picture of Vishuddha Yantra. You can draw it by hand, print it, or use a video animation.

Take a pose for meditation. The spine should be straight. Place the picture of the yantra next to you so that you can see it well.

Start studying the yantra. The three sides of the triangle represent the past, present, and future. It is important to remember all these times in order to remain in the present, to awaken to the life of an Eternal being.

The circle inside the triangle indicates the dormant psychic abilities in each of us. We get our freedom when we manage to open the throat chakra. However, your main attention should be focused on the continuation of spiritual development and the acquisition of Divine consciousness.

Now it is time to also think about ways to communicate with others. What kind of atmosphere do you create around you?
Are you ready for a deeper communication with others?

In the following days, watch your behavior. What and how do you say? What do you bring to the surrounding space — goodness or disharmony?

After completing your thoughts, sit still for a couple of minutes.

3. Writing

Writing a diary is another powerful way to do your throat chakra healing. It is very helpful to write down all your thoughts, feelings, and emotions, especially if you don’t feel comfortable sharing them with others. Writing will help you remove the block from your throat, especially if you will read what you wrote out loud.

4. Aromatherapy

Using aromatherapy is another wonderful tool you can use for your throat chakra healing. Essential oils can actually remove the block in your Vishuddha. For this purpose, you can use sandalwood and lavender oil (aroma lamp, inhalation, etc.).

5. Clothing

Did you know that the clothes that you’re wearing can actually help you with your throat chakra healing? For this purpose, when you’re choosing your clothes give preference to blue color. Ideally, it would be wearing a blue scarf around your neck. The vibration of blue color will resonate with the vibrations of the throat chakra and strengthen it.

6. Crystals

Another powerful tool for opening your throat chakra are crystals. It’s very good for your throat chakra healing to wear a necklace with lapis lazuli, blue calcite, aquamarine, turquoise, sodalite, amazonite, or blue tourmaline.

7. Nature

The element of the throat chakra is ether. That’s why spending time outside under the open the blue sky is already a healing itself. Spend more time in nature looking and meditating on the blue sky.

Conclusion

As you can see Throat chakra healing is very important especially for women. Learn to talk about your feelings and express yourself! Many women are afraid of looking weak, silly and even judged. But the thing is – it shouldn’t matter. This is the ego that wants you to stay quiet and in your “comfort zone”.
