Letting go is one thing as a “Guardian” type of personnality, I have to learn and work on. What’s a “Guardian”? It’s a type of of personnality according to the “Myers & Briggs type indicator®” it’s interesting, and what I’ve found even more surprising is that my husband is also a “Guardian”, I thought that he was more malleable than me. 🙂 Visit Myers Briggs website, and try it. Let me know what type you are and if you believe it describes you well.
I have to learn, to accept things and people or just letting go. So I found that Mantras could help me. With spiritual practices like yoga and meditation becoming more popular, it seems like everyone is talking about mantras. But what exactly is a mantra and how are you supposed to use it ? In our westernised culture, we often think that a Mantra is the same thing as an intention, but it’s not, actually it’s quite different.
What is a Mantra?
A mantra is a word, sound or phrase that is repeated during meditation.
The purpose of a mantra is to not only help you to keep your focus and and therefore enter a deeper state of meditation but it is also meant to uplift you and connect you with the intention behind the mantra to help manifest positive change in your life. I love to hear about positive changes, who doesn’t like positive things happening to them ? 🙂
Some people are fortunate enough to be given a mantra by their guru or teacher, but many people choose their own mantra depending on what they are needing in life. When choosing your mantra think about what you are trying to cultivate more of in your life. You can also meditate on an affirmation as well.
Some of my favourite modern mantras and affirmations are:
Thank you – focusing on gratitude is a sure way to uplift your energy and manifest more to be grateful for.
Be here now – this mantra can help you to be more present and live more mindfully. Stop projecting yourself and live the present moment, every little things count.
Breathe and let go – this mantra is great for creating a calmer mind and reducing anxiety.
This too shall pass– this mantra is useful for enduring challenging times or circumstances and helps you strengthen your spirit.
I am enough – this affirmation helps increase self-acceptance, confidence and self-esteem.
I can and I will – this affirmation is great when working on a project or moving in a new direction in life.
I am open to guidance – this affirmation is useful when you find yourself at a crossroads or having to make a difficult decision. It allows for your higher self to guide you to the best possible outcome.
And the title of this article is a mantra I found recently, and it’s about acceptance, differences and letting go. So here’s my mantra and I do apply it a LOT in my life on many different sphere of my life.
“I don’t get you. I don’t understand you.
(Whisper this next line:)
I don’t even like you sometimes.
But I accept you. I accept you.”
From : Crystal Andrus Morissette CEO S.W.A.T. Institute
