Reading time less than 1 minute

These mantras, from Hinduism and Buddhism, have been used for thousands of years by countless meditators to hone their minds and advance spiritually. Try them out!

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

Adoration to Shiva, a Hindu name for God.

Om Mani Padme Hum

A Buddhist mantra meaning “Hail to the jewel in the lotus,” the enlightened consciousness within all beings.

Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu

Another Hindu mantra, meaning “May all beings in all worlds be happy and free.”

Any of these mantras will both focus your mind and align your thoughts with the highest good in the universe, calming you and instilling a sense of spiritual connection.

How to practice Mantras

  1. Spend five minutes sitting in a comfortable position (cross legged on floor is good) saying a mantra out loud.
  2. Spend five minutes repeating a mantra in your head silently. See if the feeing differs. Closely note any changes in consciousness.
  3. 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.

Now You’re Ready to Take the Next Step

Now that you’ve learned about quieting the mind with mantras, you’re ready to take the next step and start practicing serious meditation and ritual.

With just a few basic tools and techniques, you’ll be able to achieve mastery of your mind and therefore your life, achieving a level of calm, meditation and focus that few human beings ever do.

What could you do, what could you achieve with this level of self-mastery?

The answer, of course, is anything.

Heal Yourself Flow: (COVID Trauma Recovery)

We are living amid the first global mass trauma event in several decades. It's arguably the first of its kind since World War Two, and almost certainly the first of such severity in your lifetime.

Trauma is a far subtler concept than many of us realize. It isn't just a word for something extremely stressful. It doesn't always come from short, sharp shocks like car accidents, terrorist attacks, or firefights. And, trauma isn't the same thing as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

What trauma is about is events and their effect on the mind. But what separates it from something merely stressful is how we relate to these events on a deep level of belief.

Trauma can be understood as a rupture in "meaning-making," where the way you see yourself, the way you see the world, and the way you see other people, are all shocked and overturned by an event. Stress accumulates and the nervous system is forced on high-alert.

While yoga isn’t the first-line treatment for trauma, it definitely helps people to acquire a better habit of self-regulation and calm. Yoga has been proven time and again to have a positive impact on a variety of psychological and physiological conditions. It cultivates mindfulness through breathing exercises, intentional relaxation, and body movement.

In addition to helping certain medical conditions and somatic dissociation, yoga has also been shown to alleviate symptoms of anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, ADHD, and eating disorders.

The Heal Yourself Flow is a gentle and comprehensive practice, in which we will utilize Yogic intentional breathing exercises to help gain control of emotional regulation, calm the sympathetic nervous system, trigger other biochemical and physiological relaxation mechanisms in the body, and improve our self-concept and coping skills.
