People are faced with a lot of stressors on a daily basis. The American Institute of Stress found out that almost 80% of Americans admit to having experienced both physical and psychological effects of stress. These include body pain, fatigue, forgetfulness, disorganization, and frustration.
Fortunately, some techniques do not require a huge amount of time or money to be able to help you meditate. One of these techniques is the chanting of a mantra.
A mantra is a combination of Sanskrit words that mean “an instrument of thought.” A mantra is usually a series of words used to relax and to meditate. A recent study discovered that repeating a mantra continuously helps the brain focus by shutting down the rest of its thoughts.
Om is a spiritual symbol in Hinduism representing the soul and the ultimate reality. Over the years, Om has been the most used mantra in yoga sessions and meditation sessions in general.
Om (pronounced as /aum/) produces a vibrating sensation in the throat that is scientifically proven to stabilize the brain and increase its focus. Long-term effects of habitually meditating using om are the increase in concentration and stress relief.
Because of its proven positive medical effects, om is considered to be the most powerful of all mantras.
Que Sera Sera is a Spanish phrase that translates to: “whatever’s meant to be will be.”
Anxiety and overthinking can be considered as one of the leading causes of stress. Chanting Que Sera Sera is a good form of mental conditioning to help a person let go of his/her stressful thoughts.
Internalizing the whole concept of Que Sera Sera makes a mantra to calm the mind, breathe and make space for more comforting and productive thoughts.
The phrase “this, too, shall pass” is often thought to have originated from the Bible. However, no Bible phrase specifically states this phrase. Some actual Bible verses where this phrase could have originated from are:
“The world is passing away, and also its lusts; but the one who does the will of God lives forever,” 1 John 2:17.
“Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away,” Matthew 24:35.
“Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come,” 2 Corinthians 5:17.
Despite this misconception, “this, too, shall pass” remains to be one of the most prominent mantras.
Like Que Sera Sera, “this, too, shall pass” is also a form of mental conditioning. Chanting this phrase gives the mind the illusion that stressors, no matter how big, will soon go away. Internalization of the concept of “this, too, shall pass” opens the brain for more positive thoughts and fun plans for the future.
Mantras work best with faith, intention, and concentration. To aid your focus, a massage appointment at home is best recommended. Spiritual and physical tranquillity is your winning ticket to a holistic meditation experience.
