A lot of people think of mantras as just verbal things, which they are not. So what are they? Well, they are a personal ritual. An action that a person can initiate to achieve something they want. This action could be a physical action, a sound, a syllable, word or group of words, mental or even spiritual. Mantras are believed to be capable of producing a significant change in a person because they can be used as a powerful driving force to aid a person to realize a certain purpose.
Basically they are a life style that helps in personal development. Personal verbal mantras involve repeating your goal and what you are going to do to achieve it over and over again. What this repetition does is remind your brain of how important your goal is to you. A physical mantra would be moving: like, repeating a physical movement over and over again until it becomes ingrained in the brain. A spiritual one would be continuous prayer for an opportunity that you want. A mental one would be taking on a different way of thinking about things. It is up to you to choose what way would be best for you to practice.
But, the good thing is, you can use them for anything that you want to achieve in life: things like attaining personal goals, producing a significant transformation in your life style or even developing your psychic abilities.
So how do you utilize mantras to achieve your goals? Here are a few simple steps you can use:
First: make a list of your goals.
The thing is you must make clear your goals. What is it that you want to accomplish? You need to be specific about what you want to accomplish. Like, could it be that you want to get your first half a million dollar by the age of 28? Or could it be that you want to own your first house six years after you begin working.
Second: write down a list: the purpose for wanting to achieve your goals.
Why do you want to have half a million by the age of 28? Is it because you want to realize a sense of financial well-being? So you must find out the commitment that will aid drive you. This commitment will be your incentive to work harder towards attaining your goals.
Third: put your list somewhere you can see it everyday.
So you need to put your list somewhere noticeable. This could have the mirror on your dressing table, wallet or purse.
Fourth: repeat your mantra.
Repeat it 20 times out loud in the morning, afternoon and before going to bed. And every time an obstacle comes in your way. Your mantra will work if you have listed strong enough motives that will force you to get back up and start working towards your goal again.
You must make the whole of your life your own personal mantra. Remember to be tenacious in supporting your mantra by taking action: meaning do any little thing you can everyday that will take you nearer to your goal and great rewards are sure to follow.
One thing to remember is that for best results try to create your own mantra because it will then be personal which means that your unconscious mind will work even that much better towards achieving your goals.
A few samples of a verbal mantra to say out loud:
I have all the energy I need to accomplish my goals.
My life is a success story.
I am a winner – I win often, and I win big!
My imagination is now creating all the financial abundance that I desire.
I let go of worry. I enjoy the natural flow of this day; whatever it may bring.
I want to open my mind, body, spirit to become – and understand why.
I will do my best to take note of my true self.
I can be whoever I want to be.
As you can see they are easy to construct, so you can come up with your own ones. Good Luck!
