My Mantra: Why I Ditched My Old One

First, let me just say I don’t really love the word “mantra”...or maybe I just have weird connotations with it...but if you have a better word for it, please tell me!!!

The first mantra I ever had was given to me by the woman who taught me how to meditate. She said it was kind of an all-purpose mantra about removing obstacles and I figured she was wise about these things so I went with it.

The thing is it was in Sanskrit, I wasn’t 100% sure of the meaning, I had no clue if I was even pronouncing it correctly (I DEFINITELY was not 😂) and, most importantly, I never felt a connection to it. Nevertheless, I used it for 10+ years.

Finally I decided it was time for a brand new one & this time I wanted something that really resonated with me.

My new one is just four words. I understand it thoroughly. It captures the EXACT feeling I want and I picked it out for myself. It has allllllllll the key ingredients for success.

Changing that mantra changed my whole perspective. I is something I say to myself 108 times a day every should.

I’m bummed I waited so long.

There are a lot of claims about the magic some mantras bring. Maybe they do, maybe they don’t. Here’s the thing I do know: my new one isn’t on any of those lists but yet it has made all the difference for me. 🙏🏼

(btw in my class, Heavily Meditated, we go through all about picking out your personal mantra - it’s such an important step!!)
