Favourite go-to mantras for support and healing
Updated: Nov 24, 2022
A mantra is a phrase of divine truth or a sacred invocation that you repeat and use to reach a meditative state and/or invoke a certain deity or divine quality. 'Mantra' is also a yogic path, using the voice and sound to reach freedom and soul connection. It is linked to the throat chakra, or 'vishuddha' the 5th primary chakra in the body.
I love mantras as they align me with a higher consciousness and connect me with the energy of certain types of consciousness / deities / guides. As mentioned they also affirm divine truths, and are in general just beautiful to listen to when put to music.
Here are my favourite go-to mantras I've used since years for support and healing.
1. Om Mani Padme Um – Mantra for Divine Alignment
Om mani padme hum is an ancient Buddhist mantra. It literally translates to “Praise to the Jewel in the Lotus.”
– Om refers to, like Brahma / Paramatman / Prime Creator / Source / The All That Is, to that which is behind it all, the unmanifest
– Mani means jewel or crystal
– Padme means lotus
– Hum means heart
You can use this mantra to connect to the Divine Creator Consciousness, to Source, and align yourself with the beautiful, peaceful unfolding of life in divine truth and grace.
2. Nam Myoho Renge Kyo – Mantra for Libration
This mantra loosely translates to “I devote myself to the Mystic Law of the Lotus Sutra”. The Lotus Sutra is said to contain the last teachings by Gautama Buddha before he 'dropped his body', and the core message taken from it is that every person can reach enlightenment in this lifetime. Enlightenment for a Buddha refers to freedom of suffering and the karmic cycle of life and death. “Myoho Renge Kyo” is the title of the Lotus Sutra itself, and adding “Nam” creates a mantra that, when chanted aloud, is said to invoke the entirety of the teachings within the sutra.
