Trouble Meditating? Try Mantra Meditation
If the idea sitting in silence to meditate has felt really challenging, why not try Mantra Meditation. Mantra chanting is a sacred and beautiful practice.
Mantra comes from the the Sanskrit word “Man” which means Mind “tra” means “instrument” or “freedom.” Thus, mantra, a word or phrase you repeat during meditation is a tool to free the mind. It’s a combination of sound, breath and rhythm designed to release the mind from all the stresses that come from being a human on planet earth.
It’s based on the science of sound and its complex effects on our neuroendocrinology, psychology and behavior.
Some of the health benefits of mantra mediation include:
Lower Blood Pressure
Increased Self Compassion
When I first discovered the technology of Kundalini Yoga, the practice of chanting mantra was the most unique and foreign aspect. But as I quickly experienced, it was the most powerful and transformative part. A bridge to our subtle, energetic body, sacred mantras have the power to dissolve emotional blockages, clear the subconscious mind and recalibrate your entire perception.
