Simple Meditation Techniques: Meditation Mantras
In my previous post on meditation mantras we discussed the popular mantras that have stood the test of time. There are great advantages in using them. They have already been charged with much power – not just from the original
source – usually sacred scripture – but from the millions (perhaps billions) of souls who have worked with
it over the millennia. Any line of sacred scripture can be used as a mantra – and many mediators will select
a phrase that appeals to them at a given time.
But some people are not comfortable with “off the shelf”, “one size fits all” mantras. Some people are not
comfortable buying clothing off the shelf. They like their clothing tailored for them, and the same is true
with meditation mantras.
So there is a way, for those of you who want to put in the work, to create your own personal meditation
Simple Meditation Techniques – Personal Meditation Mantras
Take a phrase or affirmation that appeals to you. That suits your need at a given time. Perhaps it is the
phrase GOD IS LOVE (a very popular affirmation) or if you feel plagued with financial difficulties use the
phrase GOD IS SUPER AFFLUENT. If healing is important use the phrase is GOD IS HEALTH or GOD IS
ABSOLUTE HEALTH. Whatever phrase you choose set aside times each day (and hour at a minimum)
and just repeat the phrase over and over again. If the mind drifts (and in the beginning it will) bring it back
to your phrase. As you continue, you will eventually reach a point where you’re not just mouthing words.
You will start to feel the energy behind that phrase come into you. When this happens, your problem will
start to dissolve – usually gradually – but sometimes very quickly.
Once you have installed this phrase into your mind and the emotions are responding to it. The next step
is to create a new word from the first letters of the phrase. So, for example, GOD IS LOVE, will become
GIL. GOD IS SUPERAFFLUENT will become GISA. When you utter the word, it will call up the whole
phrase and you will get the same result as if you uttered the whole phrase. Since it is shorter, you can say
it more times and get better results.
