Through our heads, every day, a million thoughts come and go. Dome ate positive, and others are negative, but we always seem to be affected by the negative ones. We always try to take them away by blocking them, but they seem to come back. The thing is, maybe we are just doing it the wrong way. Because through all these evil thoughts, we might need a strongly positive one that contains everything we need, and we call that a mantra. A mantra is a Sanskrit word that has been translated to English through many words like a hymn, a charm, a sacred message, a spell, and many others. A mantra is a thought we create that can slice through the negativity in the out head at any moment and cut all the evil thoughts. And we all need one of those in our lives.
In meditation sessions, mantras are very used to make people believe in themselves and do what they aim for. So, for example, if they need to boost their confidence or feel good, they find the perfect mantra for that. And it isn't that hard; you have to follow some steps.
1. Always start with "I" To create your mantra, you have to think only about yourself. Usually, when you want to control your thoughts, you have to make them believable, and there is no better way to make them likely than to act in your mind. To do this, you have to be the center of your thoughts and start with "I." And remember that the most important thing is to have a great belief in you and what you are doing.
2. It is better to keep it present. For example, you might think that it's better to think about the future like "I will be strong," but instead of doing so, use the present like "I am strong." If you use the future in your affirmations, you will convince and teach your mind that you haven't achieved or are those things yet. But if you use the present, you will train your mind about the idea that you already are all those things.
3. Try to use motivating adjectives and verbs. When you repeat motivating and positive words about yourself, you feel good. Your brain will memorize that feeling, and thus it helps you keep on feeling those emotions by constantly reminding you about these words you used.
4. Be positive in your affirmations. Always try to affirm what you want, not what you don't. For instance, instead of saying "I am not afraid," try saying, "I am very courageous." Because your subconscious might reversibly use these words, take it for example, like if you say "I am not afraid of spiders," the first thing that comes to your mind is an image of a spider.
5. Be concise. It is essential to keep your mantra as brief as it can be. Because that way you can remember it quickly and at any time throughout the day.
Finally, your mantra is something connected to your heart and mind. There's no need for anyone to know it. Bring it privately and silently to your mind; always remind you of your ability and capacity to be who you want and create the life you desire.
