Mantras are meaningful utterances that are believed to have psychological and spiritual powers over us. Whether they are sung, spoken or read, they have the power to bring peace and serenity into our soul, and perhaps heal the emotional pain we may have. Personally, I have found these to work especially well when reflected upon first thing in the morning, helping me to start the day on a peaceful, soothing note. Here are some great mantras you can include in your morning ritual.
It's a common habit is to think that our current situation is impossible to change. Remember this: No matter how good or bad a situation is, it will change.
While planning is good to a certain extent, overdoing it can make us expect too much from certain individuals or situations. Just let go every once in a while, and let life unfold naturally. There's beauty in that too.
When you do things with your heart, it all feels right, even if it means that you have to drain your energy and face lots of obstacles.
We are here in this world for each other. Don't let someone ruin your good mood, it's just as easy to spread some positivity and make someone smile.
One of the secrets that will get you by in life is focus. Don't get too distracted by the negativity other people create. And most importantly, try not to let it influence you on a personal level.
Remember the times you worked hard to achieve something that you take for granted today? Believe that you can still do that, because you're still the same person within.
Don't be too hard on yourself, you're not a machine. You learn one step at a time, and in the end, you'll realize it was all worth it.
While it's good to analyze your situation, make sure you don't over-think it - you'll end up creating problems in your head that weren't even there in the first place.
Move on, don't linger in the past or obsess about the future. What's most important is how you are doing right now, in your present.
Don't lose yourself in revenge, competitiveness, or jealousy. Soon enough, you'll realize they're all unimportant.
Don't think with your mind, think with your heart, and be sensitive to the way you perceive different people and situations. Your heart always knows best.
Today, remind yourself of what is really important. Are you going to dampen the spirits of others by having high expectations and making negative comments? Do everyone a small favor and try to face your day with a little more awareness.
Don't let greed mislead you. It's good to be ambitious just as it's priceless to be thankful for what you have been given or what you have achieved.
A little bit of gratitude goes a long way. Make an effort to include it in everything you do today.
