Some consider that chanting sacred mantras actually causes the etheric and physical bodies to change their energetical frequency level, becoming more attuned if you like, with divine energy.
Everything is in a state of vibration and when we are in a healthy, resonant vibration, we are in a state of health. But if some part of the body begins to vibrate at a counter frequency, the energy becomes stuck and illness sets in. Hence, by chanting positive mantras, one can release stuck energy and return to the natural state of resonance, generating a cure.
8 positive mantras to start the day:
Tara (whose name means “she who ferries across” or “star”) is a Bodhisattva of compassion who manifests in a female form. By chanting Om Tare Tuttare Ture Soha, one will be able to invoke the blessings of Goddess Tara and request for her protection.
Green Tara mantra is usually used to overcome emotional, mental or physical blockages and also blockages in relationships. Recite one mala (108 repetitions) of this mantra each night and each morning. Turn to Tara when you feel the need of comfort, when you want some project to succeed or when you feel depressed.
Aum is the primordial sacred sound from which the whole universe was created. In the yoga tradition, Aum (or Om) is the most sacred of holy words, the supreme mantra.
„Om: this syllable is all this. A further exposition of it is: what was, what is, and what will be — all is only Om. And whatever else is beyond the 3 times, that also is only Om.” – Mandukya Upanishad
#3 Gayatri Mantra – Om Bhur Bhuvaha Svaha
The Gayatri mantra – Om Bhur Bhuvaha Svaha consists of 24 syllables – three lines of eight syllables each. This healing mantra is considered not to have an author and like all other Vedic mantras is believed to have been revealed to Brahmarshi Vishvamitra (sage of ancient times in India).
#4 Om Namah Shivaya Mantra
It has been said about this soothing mantra that if this mantra vibrates continually in your heart chakra, then you have no need to meditate, to perform austerities, or to practice yoga. This mantra literally translates as „I bow to Shiva.” Lord Shiva is the supreme reality, the inner Self. It is the name given to consciousness that resides in all.
#5 Om Mani Padme Hum Mantra
According to Tibetan culture, it is said that all the teachings of Buddha are contained in the potent mantra Om Mani Padme Hum, and that to know the phrase is to know enlightenment.
„So in this way chanting of the mantra helps achieve perfection in the six practices from generosity to wisdom. The path of these 6 perfections is the path walked by all the Buddhas of the 3 times. What could then be more meaningful than to say the mantra and accomplish the six perfections?” – Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche
#6 Wah Yantee Mantra for Intuition
Wah Yantee is an incredibly Kundalini mantra, written in Sanskrit by the father of the yoga sutras and the eight-limbed ashtanga path, Patanjali. Yogi Bhajan said that it was a mantra of awakening your intuition.
#7 Buddha Amitabha Mantra
Amitabha is the Buddha of the comprehensive love. We can recite this mantra out loud or we can just say it over and over in our minds and it becomes a meditation. Meditations are to „guard or protect the mind”. When you are chanting a sacred mantra, your mind has a hard time thinking of much else, so this is one way to protect the mind. With a single chanting of Buddha Amitabha mantra, you destroy countless eons of bad karma.
#8 Great Compassion Mantra – Da Bei Zhou Mantra
This Dharani (a type of long mantra) cites 84 of the manifestations that Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva will take to help people along the Way.
