Meditation guided mantras can be the key to unlocking your full meditation potential. Depending on what sort of meditation you practice, a mantra is a word, phrase or syllable you utter while meditating that can help you focus. Mantras can be spoken aloud or silently thought, either way they help keep your excess thoughts at bay. For thousands of years, many meditation practitioners have been using mantras to enhance the power of their meditations. If you find yourself having difficulty in choosing what you want to use as a mantra, the following will provide some tips to make your selection easier.
You should begin to choose a guided meditation mantra by doing a little word association. Think of what you want to achieve through meditation, and write down words associated with that. If you are looking to gain a greater sense of calm, you might want to write words like peace, tranquility, or other related terms. Do the same for all of the goals you have for your meditation schedule. Read all the words you think of out loud. Hopefully, one or more of them should stand out or resonate with you.The next time you meditate, try out your chosen word or phrase as your mantra. Whether you say your mantra aloud or silently in your head during your guided meditation sessions, work it into your meditation routine as seamlessly as possible. Try repeating it for approximately twenty minutes while meditating. Be sure to draw out the word, especially if you have chosen a mantra with more than one syllable. Stretch out the word or phrase so that it feels very calming for you to say repeatedly. Even if you select a perfect mantra, it may be helpful for you to incorporate some more traditional mantras or chants. It might seem like a stereotype to chant the Om or Ah sound, but it can be very helpful. There is also a very well known Buddhist chant you may want to take up, that being “Om mani padme hum.” Repeating either the Om or the entire chant is likely to help you clear your mind and provide a nice beginning to a meditation session in which you can insert your own chosen mantra. As your goals change, be sure to update and change your mantras so that you continue to achieve the goals you have set for your work in meditation guided.
