Mantra is for the people who realize that if you are on a higher vibration (feeling happy, energized, fulfilled, moved, hyped) you have a better experience when facing the world. The first few minutes are designed to get you centered and focused; the rest of the time is to move your vibration to get you into the peak state of well-being ready to attack the world!
We start by taking a few nice deep breaths and possibly allowing our eyes to close. Allowing our eyes to close takes us out of the physical world and allows us to go within. The absence of visual stimuli allows other senses to be heightened. Maybe you can feel the energy flowing to you and through you with every breath you take in. This is your time. Let yourself just be in this moment. Everything you have to do can wait including thinking that thought. Swipe it away like an unwanted notification. You can check your messages later. For now just follow the energy.
You may feel the sensation of the air on your skin gently moving the hairs along your arms or possibly your connection with the earth as the stress leaves your body through your feet to be purified by the soil. We spend so much time being worried about the next thing we have to do. It is nice to just take the weight of the world off our shoulders. To feel the vibration of the music bringing us back in tune with the One Song.
This time of year can be stressful. Between the ever shorter days, to the pressures of the holiday season along with the unpredictable weather we can easily feel overwhelmed. I heard a saying recently, “If there is no answer, there must not be a problem.” How many “un-answerable problems” do we create in our minds? What would happen if you didn’t make that phone call, go to that party, send out that card? What if instead we opened our hearts and allowed those people to be held in love and stopped putting more and more pressure onto ourselves and others. What if instead of worrying about the perfect gift we worried about how we can show the most love.
The ego mind wants us to think that we must do more, get more, more, more, more! It is never enough. When we can just be in this breath we remember what is important is the love and the connection we have. Allow yourself to just bask in the fact that the only separations we have are the ones we create. You are perfect, whole and complete just as you are. You mustn’t add or do anything to be any more perfect.
We might ask ourselves how can we be gentler with ourselves? How can we be more loving to ourselves? What would truly make my soul happy today? What triggers of discontent can I disarm today? Allow yourself to ponder those questions and know that the Universe is sending nothing but positive energy to you. The sun shines on us all equally. We can each choose to feel the rain on our skin.
So much of our lives are designed to make us feel comfortable. The heating and cooling system, the windows, walls but true change never happens in our comfort sone. Know that you create your life by the thoughts that you think. Keep reaching for the next highest thought. Let the music inspire you. Keep following the energy till you are compelled to move, till you have inspired action even if it is just to stretch out your body. There is only one true path, the one that you are on. Remember that the darkness you see is just an absence of light. If you don’t see light, it is your turn to be it.
You are loved!
