Use these mantras from the past for enlightenment
One of the best possible things you can do with your time is to begin honing your most important instrument: Your mind. Mantras are an incredible tool for doing just that, that anybody can use. To practice magick effectively, you need to sharpen your mind until you can achieve single-pointed consciousness. This skill underlies not only all successful magick but all success, period. To that end, we will employ a mantra. Mantras are short, sacred sentences that have been designed to silence your mind. Try one of the following three mantras:
Om Namah Shivaya
Om Mani Padme Hum
Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu
How to practice Mantras
- Spend five minutes sitting in a comfortable position (cross legged on floor is good) saying a mantra out loud.
- Spend five minutes repeating a mantra in your head silently. See if the feeing differs. Closely note any changes in consciousness.
- Extend the period of time you meditate on mantras: 10 minutes, 20, 30 or more. See if you can continue repeating a mantra in your head while going about your day.
