Mantras – simple yet powerful.

A couple of months ago I listened to a guided meditation, centered around I AM mantras. It was a welcome reminder of how incredibly impactful and energising mantras are. Inspired, I started a mantra series on my Social Media feeds, with the intention to feature mantras on a regular basis - so they can serve as a prompt to pause and align us to a positive state of being. Feel free to join me on Instagram or Facebook.

Last week, I spoke to a few of my clients about personal power, releasing stresses around it, creating awareness, and discussing how to step back into it. It's never pleasant to experience a sense of powerlessness to the point of feeling defeated, flat or unmotivated. This can be exacerbated by the current environment where a lot of things seem outside of our control. Sound familiar?

Alas, I chose to kick start November with the “I am Empowered” mantra.

What is a mantra?

Mantra comes from two Sanskrit words: “man” = mind; “tra”= vehicle or instrument, thus, a mantra is a mind vehicle or instrument, a tool to shift our mind from a state of activity to a state of stillness, quietude and focus.

Like affirmations, a mantra can be helpful in:

  • Rewiring our thought patterns, especially when our inner critic is super active
  • Redirecting our brain and neurological pathways into a positive direction
  • Rebalancing and calming ourselves, especially if we have been thrown off centre
  • Uplifting our energy and shifting our energetic vibration into a higher gear.

How to use a mantra?

Working with a chosen I AM mantra is a simple yet deep practice; a beautiful way of getting in touch with our True Self and connecting with how we would like to be and feel. 

  • You can say the mantra out loud, whisper it and/or recite it silently
  • Keep repeating it and do so regularly, allowing it to steadily infuse your inner landscape
  • You can also practise mantra meditation – something I find very beneficial, for more information, click here to read my article Creating space for stillness.

Besides affirming a mantra, I recommend to consciously connect with its meaning and importantly, what it means to you, so in this example what are you and feel empowered about? I find it helpful to grab a piece of paper and write things out to get clearer and set positive intentions. This doesn’t have to be complicated, for example, it could look like this:

I am empowered to:

  • Switch off the news
  • Take a break from social media
  • Go outside and go for a walk
  • Set clear boundaries
  • Say “no” when I really want to say it
  • Prioritise selfcare
  • Sit down and relax
  • Make wise wellbeing choices
  • Reward myself
  • Pay myself a compliment
  • Ground myself daily
  • Do absolutely nothing.

What would your list look like? What mantra will you choose? 

Remember, there is no right or wrong way, only your unique way. I hope mantras will become your steady companion and reliable wellbeing tool so you can stay empowered, centred and present.

“I can absolutely recommend Lexi, she is kind, compassionate and her treatments have helped me identify and manage stress and long held patterns of behaviour which have caused a massive shift in my health and wellbeing.” Helen (53)
“Lexi has been an integral part of my health regime for the past 3 years. I first went to Lexi because I was not seeing any improvement through conventional medicine for my health issue. I am consistently amazed at how much better I feel after having kinesiology sessions with Lexi.” Kylie (50)
“I felt out of balance and over stressed with my business, family and health and developed a skin condition. After seeing Lexi, I felt more focused and productive at work and far less stressed. My skin condition completely left after my 2nd session within 7 days. I can’t thank you enough Lexi.” Oli (30)
“I have suffered with nightly leg cramps for many years with no relief. Lexi was recommended to me by my daughter and after 1 visit and follow up, I am now free of the dreaded leg cramps. I can highly recommend Lexi, I think she is amazing, and I will continue to be a client of her.” Lorraine (74)
