How To Create Mantras

Mantras are something very commonly used in SCR.

 

 

A mantra is a word, sound or phrase that is repeated over and over again to aid in the reframing of your current mindset.

Example:

You’re having a beach whale feelling day and you can’t stop the negative story in your head. You want to reframe what’s happening in that brain of yours but you aren’t sure how.

So you quietly begin to repeat:

I completely love and accept myself.

Either in your head or out loud, you speak it over and over again as a pathway to end the negative talk and come back into the flow.

Think about it, you’ve been telling yourself that you’re fat, ugly, unworthy, not enough etc for years and you actually believe these things. So imagine if you changed the conversation?

 

But what about when mantras don’t work because you feel like you actually hate yourself.....

 

Mantra 911, send in the troops!

 

 

You’re repeating like a mad woman “I love myself, I love myself, I LOVE MYSELF.” It’s not working though. What next?

 

Okay, let’s not tell those negative feelings to go away then. Let’s not try and mask a happy feeling just to cover up what you’re actually feeling.

Instead of saying: I love myself.

 

Try:

“I am so angry right now. I feel shame and I’m embarrassed of where I’m at. I want to love myself. I am committed to loving myself and doing what it takes to get there. Even though I feel this hurt and anger, I am still completely open to loving and accepting myself. “

 

My Favorite Mantras:

  • I am love

  • Even though I feel this hurt I still completely love and accept myself

  • Standing in my truth is where my power lies

  • I am worthy of love

  • I am kind and powerful

  • Even though I feel lost, I know that I am divinely guided and supported.

  • I release the need to feel be in control

  • Thank you (I say to myself and my food)

  • I love you (I say to myself)

  • Go slow

  • I am here

 

If you’re into choosing a sanskirt word (commonly heard in yoga):

Shradda - Faith

Bhakti - Devotion

Shanti - Peace

Prajna - Wisdom

Santosa - Contentment

Veda - Knowledge

Ananda - Bliss

Moksha - Liberation

Shakti- Divine Feminine

Prasada - Grace/clarity

 

 

  1. Pick your mantra

  2. Repeat it in your mind or outloud 1-100000 times.

  3. If you speak it out loud, speak it with conviction. Even if your voice shakes in the beginning.

 

 

 

Power Mantras

 

  • When I detach from others opinions, I connect with my truth.

 

  • Pleasure is my priority.

 

  • I am not physically stuck, I move easily through fear.

 

  • I choose to feel my pain, and not be absorbed by it.

 

  • I say no to things that don’t serve me. I say yes when something feels good.

 

Now it's your turn to create your own.....
