The older (and freaking busier) I get, the bigger the role meditation plays in my daily practice. My favourite technique is mantra meditation: focusing my mind on words that have meaning for me.
Teachnically, the word ‘mantra’ refers to a chant that has its origins in the Hindu Vedas, but these days it’s common parlance to call anything repeated with focus a mantra.
My favourite mantra?
I’ve been using it for YEARS!
I open to the light in my heart.
I release all that may be blocking it. (Or at the very least, soften around it.)
I teach it at least once a day, usually far more often.
I love it!
I made you a picture to show you how much I love it…
The relief from thinking (worrying) that a few minutes of this gives? Is immeasurable, and priceless.
