How to create a Mantra of meditation? 

Choosing and creating a Mantra can be highly personal. Let’s not talk about choosing Mantra for now. Here we are going to focus and how you can create your own Mantra. 

How to create a Mantra of meditation

1. Short and meaningful: 

When you are creating a Mantra for yourself, it’s important that it’s meaningful to you. The vibrations of the Mantra depends a lot on its meaning to you. If it doesn’t connect you with the meaning, then play around with the words’ little mode. 

2. Consider having a rhythm and its sounds good: 

When what you are chanting sounds good, you can feel it even more. If your Mantra is going to have a rhythm and a good sound, it will be easier to focus. 

3. Avoid adding negative words: 

It’s the most common mistake, and even the people who write affirmations all the time can make this mistake. When you are in a very deep meditative state, negative words might not even register in the mind, such as “no”, “never”, or “not. For example, if your Mantra is “I don’t have fear” then your mind can focus on the keyword “fear” the meditation discarding the “don’t” word. Use more positive sentences such as “I am full of courage”.
