What are Mantras?
The word 'Mantra' comes from a Sanskrit word meaning a sacred message and is used in many ancient traditions to aid meditation, focus and healing. In a more modern sense, mantras are used to promote positive psychological changes in mindset and are a very popular way to bring about calm and peace.
Having some simple mantras in mind can be very useful for times of stress, anxiety, fear or panic. Here are my favourite Mantras for manic moments. Breathe them in with long slow breaths and feel yourself relax!
1. I am calm and in control
2. I breathe in peace, I breathe out fear
3. Let it be
4. I invite calm into my life today
5. Be here now
6. I am safe and protected
7. All is well in my world
8. I know and believe in my inner strength
9. I release all expectations that lead me to stress
10. Breathe in and breathe out
11. I invite positivity in to my day
12. I breathe out negative thoughts and feelings
13. I am grounded, centred and connected
14. I choose peace before stress
15. I know I can relax as I breathe
