Mantras are repetitive sounds used to enter the depths of the unconscious mind, an instrument of the mind – a powerful sound or vibration by which we can transform consciousness into matter.
Mantra is a special word or phrase that contains great power and it needs to be perfected with practice. This involves thoughts and words.
The fact is that the whole universe and everything in it rest on sound and moves by directing energy. There are records in the Vedas about how sound is the most subtle manifestation of matter and that coarser elements, from ether to air, fire, water, and earth, gradually manifest from it. It is sound that carries the structure of matter itself.
Mantras act through chanting, mental practice, or by listening to them. The practitioner will begin to vibrate within the frequency of that mantra. The vibrations and sounds of the mantra should awaken the prana and stimulate the chakras.
Mantras can be pronounced aloud or in ourselves. By using mantras in our daily lives we can reach a state of calm and relaxed mind, just like with meditation. When a mantra is chanted with proper understanding and intonation, it aims to free the mind from illusion and material inclinations and bring it to enlightenment, concentration, and focus. They are also there to calm the mind, to connect with nature, to achieve happiness, health, fulfillment, and self-knowledge.
The most famous of all Hindu mantras is the mantra “Aum” (OM). It represents the totality of existence, both material and spiritual. OM is considered to be the first sound heard at the creation of the universe and signifies cosmic vibration. The vibration of every cell of the human body changes, and they align with the highest and purest vibration of the universe.
In Buddhism, the most famous mantra is “Om Mani Padme Hum”, roughly translated “jewel in the lotus”. This reference to wisdom and compassion, which are both necessary for attaining enlightenment. The vibration that is felt during the singing is most intense in the area of the heart chakra – Anahata.
From today’s point of view, a personal mantra is a positive phrase or affirmation of encouragement. It could be a favorite quote that motivates and inspires you to be the best version you can be. For practice, you should find a quiet place, sit in a comfortable position with your eyes closed, focus on breathing, and decide whether you want to sing loudly or quietly, repeating the mantra in yourself.
It is important to mention that the mantra is not a prayer. In prayer, the goal is to be achieved by faith, while in mantras it is a clear, pure, and focused direction of sound, vibration, and energy in the desired direction. Exactly what effect a mantra has depends on its purpose.
The combination of mantra and isochronic tones for manifestation is powerful, because of the alignment of the frequencies. While doing your mantra, your daily affirmation, I highly suggest playing these recordings of isochronic tones that will greatly enhance the power of manifestation:
