Dear readers,

I’m often asked…

“Do mantras or affirmations make good meditations?”

I want to dive into this question today.


What Is A Mantra?

A mantra is a syllable, word, or phrase repeated while meditating; either spoken, chanted, whispered, or repeated silently in the mind.

The practice of using mantras for meditation stems from ancient Buddhist and Hindu practices.

But mantras can be used for non-secular mindfulness too.

Repeating a mantra can serve as a kind of mental protection against distractions or emotions.

It can also help you develop a deeper, more spiritual purpose.

In Buddhism, mantras serve the purpose of keeping the mind focused and receptive to the present moment.

This, in turn, allows you to take time to appreciate everything you are grateful for.

In certain Hindu and Christian traditions, mantra recitation is used to focus the heart and connect with the divine.

Developing Your Mantra

Developing Your Mantra

When it comes to developing your mantra, first consider what your intention is. This could range from;

“May my practice help me overcome destructive personal habits,”


“May my practice help me be more patient.”

From there, create a short phrase.

Think of something your wisest mentor, closest friend, or most beloved family member might say to you.

Examples of Mantras

– My heart will guide me.

– I am exactly where I’m supposed to be.

– I am content with this moment.

– I am strong, intuitive, and intelligent.

Mantra’s can also be very simple, such as these examples; “Peace”, or “Let Go.”

Whatever you land on, know that you can shift it each day, or moment, to fit your mood or needs.

You make your rules when it comes to your meditation practice.

Sending you good vibes and love!
