The Mantra


In recent years, I have had a mantra.

I believe in mantras, because I believe that our thought patterns have the capacity to powerfully influence and determine the path our lives.

For me, a mantra is a simple way of taming my thought patterns.

I use my mantra when I notice my thoughts to be negative, painful, or in any way not related to the vision I have for my life.  I use it during times of meditation, extreme physical labor, or quiet moments during mundane tasks.

I believe that the thoughts that echo through your mind most will have the greatest impact on your reality.  I also believe that among the most effective ways to intensify the power of a thought is to speak it.

This is why I think and speak my mantra.  To intensify my intention.   

Once you realize that your reality is determined by you,  you must accept responsibility for whatever occurs.  Good or bad.

The challenge comes in controlling the thinking mind so that it works for you, instead of against you.

A mantra is my way of intentionally and thoughtfully creating my universe.

I worked for a long time and made a lot of edits, adding and taking away elements.  Eventually, I arrived at this:

Happy Heart

Peaceful Mind

Healthy Body

Grateful Spirit

An Abundance of Good Things

My mantra is the vision that I have for my life, and it is the basis of everything I wish to share on this blog.
