I practice mantras to help focus in on areas where I want to grow. Practicing mantras is a way to increase your sense of wellness and vitality.
The definition of a mantra according to Wiki is a “Mystical formula of invocation as in Hinduism. The earliest mantras were composed in Vedic Sanskrit in India and are at least 3500 years old.” They go on to explain that the word ॐ ‘Aum or Om’ serves as a mantra, and “is believed to be the first sound which was originated on earth.”

How to Practice Mantras for Health
You can chant ‘Om’ for peace of mind and to put yourself into a meditative state. Mantras are a meditation, and I find it’s nice to practice in the mirror or when sitting alone in a quiet place. It’s helpful to write a gratitude list before or after practicing mantras as well. Keeping gratitude lists reminds you of how blessed you are.
What to use Mantras for:
I have used mantras in many areas of my life including concentration, to increase energy levels, and to increase wellness. They definitely helped me get through graduate school. I used to read a lot of Louise Hay, who has a great book called You Can Heal Your Life, which is similar to mantras for health. She gives affirmations for each individual sickness, to help us train our minds to keep from worrying.
Best Time to use Mantras:
In my own experience I find that using mantras to get into a meditative state is easiest at dawn. I like the time before the sun rises above the horizon, through sunrise. Mid-day sun and sunset are also powerful times to practice mantras. The stars are also a beautiful way to get into a peaceful state and affirm your wellness to yourself.
Mantras for Health:
I am powerful and full of potential. I choose where my energy flows.
I love my whole self. I’m grateful for my body and for who I am.
I am grateful for my well-being and the well-being of Earth.
I love myself and I am so proud of myself. I’m doing so great.
I am a walking miracle and I heal myself.
My body is wise and knows exactly what to do.
I listen to my body to stay thriving and happy.
I love everything about myself. I accept all of myself.
This joy feels good. I love this.
Recite these mantras for five minutes everyday, and use the ones that resonate with you. You can always create your own mantra, and affirm it to yourself. Let me know in the comments how this felt when you tried it.
As always, I hope this was helpful and i’m hoping you’re smiling.
All my love,
