20 Mantras to Help Make Miracles Happen
Maybe you’ve been plugging along for a while—same thing, same day; same thought process. Or, maybe you’ve entered something completely new, and you’re not quite sure what to think of it all.
In order to create a life you love, you’ve got to be aware of where your mind is taking you all the time. External reality begins internally—and your thoughts are a big part of that. That’s good news, because you have the power to control what you’re thinking. The mind loves to wander. It is curious, quizzical, and has a tendency to run the show; but give it something to play with, and it can become your very best ally.
Enter the work of the mantra: A mantra is sort of like an anchor; something the mind can hang onto to keep it focused on what’s most important. It might be one word, or it might be a whole sentence. I tend to favor a statement that places whatever I desire in the present tense, so that as I repeat it in my mind, I begin to feel like it is actually happening. And if you can evoke the feeling that goes along with whatever it is you want, then you are paving the way for big things to start manifesting.
Another powerful aspect of the mantra is that it will burn up old thought patterns so that you can start to create something fresh. You’ll begin to recognize which thoughts are serving you and which ones aren’t, and as you discipline your mind, you’ll be able to flush out, burn up and transform anything that isn’t helping you to create the life you know you’re meant to live.
To help you get started, I’ve put together a few of my favorites. Borrow one of these, or make up one of your own. And one more important note: Don't let the mantras simply float across your headspace. They must land in your body. This means that you need to sync up the mantra with the feeling or sensation that you'll experience when the mantra manifests itself into your reality. Feelings like gratitude, love, joy, peace, or abundance work really well. In the beginning, it will feel like you're planting a seed--there might not be much happening, but eventually that seed will sprout and you won't have to use your imagination anymore summon up the associated feelings; they'll be real because your reality will prove it.
Approach it like this: read through the list and pay close attention to the mantras that really resonate with you. Make changes to it if you need to, or simply use the list as inspiration to create something brand new. The key is that it sounds fluid and easy to repeat. Then, write it down, stick it in your head on repeat, and then anytime you catch a thought that pulls you away from who or where you want to be, return to your mantra, summon up the associated feeling and watch the magic happen.
