Meditation can help a wide range of conditions, and using mantras might be what you need to bring your practice to a whole new level. Meditation mantras are a form of positive self-talk that helps improve focus throughout your routine, allowing your mind to settle into a positive, tranquil space.

What Are Meditation Mantras?

Meditation mantras are short phrases or sounds that you repeat throughout your practice. Some people choose to use them silently, repeating them in their minds, and some wish to voice them out loud. There is no wrong way to use meditation mantras. Ultimately it comes down to which way works best for you.

Mantras can also be a specific set of Vedic chants that you use throughout your routine. Most commonly, they’re Sanskrit phrases used by ancient yogis, and each sound has its power and meaning.

Different Types of Mantras

Meditation mantras have several purposes, all designed to benefit the powers of your practice. Whether you are repeating short sayings to yourself, or are taking the more advanced route of using Vedic chants, the goal is the same– to promote an element of deeper consciousness and self-empowerment.

No matter what type of meditation you choose, mantras can improve your experience.

Self-Development Phrases as Meditation Mantras

Many people choose to use self-development phrases as meditation mantras. These are the easiest to implement and can help manifest positive change in your life. It’s believed that repeating such mantras can improve the way you see the world and the way you see yourself.

Examples of self-development mantras include:

  • I create my destiny
  • I am kind
  • I am creative
  • I will reap the benefits of my hard work

Vedic Chants as Meditation Mantras

The practice of Vedic chants dates back many centuries and is based on the belief that certain sounds emit vibrations into the universe to produce specific outcomes. Sanskrit chants are meant to be said out loud.  To fully align yourself with the universe through the power of Vedic mantras, a sound should be repeated 108 times, according to ancient culture.

Examples of Vedic sound mantras include:

  • “Aham Prema,” meaning “I am Divine Love”
  • “Om Mani Padme Hum,” which is associated with compassion

The Power of Meditation Mantras

While bringing positivity to your life is the primary goal of using meditation mantras, there are further benefits. Some people find that the use of mantras helps block out external noise or stop intrusive thoughts from interrupting their practice.

Also, they provide the ability to refocus. If you find your mind wandering, bring your focus back to your mantra. This allows you to re-settle into your meditation.

Improve Your Day

Additionally, repeating mantras throughout your meditation allows the phrase to sink in. You will be more likely to carry the message and intent with you throughout the day, as you have taken the time to ingrain it in your mind.

Lastly, mantras can increase self-awareness and enable you to catch yourself slipping into old, negative patterns. The power of meditation mantras is invaluable. Try incorporating them the next time you sit down for quick practice.
