Meaning of Mantras

The word mantra comes from Sanskrit and means “tool/instrument of thought.”

MantrasMantras are words or sounds with meaning, that are repeated over and over again. The goal is to create a positive energetic effect and a higher state of consciousness.

Mantras have been used for centuries for mind-body connection purposes, and can be a very powerful way to enter into a deep meditative state.

In fact, many practitioners use mantras (versus focusing on their breathing) to help them slip into a meditative state more easily.

If there is a part of your Self that you would like to attend to, you can select a mantra in relation to this area for nourishment.

For example, if you need stress relief then you could choose a mantra like the following:

  • Breathe In: “I am grateful for my life” … Breathe Out: “I am letting go of stress”
  • Breathe In: “Love” … Breathe Out: “Stress…”
