Five Easy Mantras: Ways to find focus

Positive Planning
Five Easy Mantras

All of the mantras listed here have been introduced in our weekly Monday Mojo sessions for our group members to share and to use. The exercises that accompany these all follow the train of thought that comes with each Mantra that we have embraced. They are focused on specific areas in our lives where we may need to reach out for help. At times the help is spiritual, and at times it is support that we need in the here and now. But always, there is a way to focus on what is occurring in the moment and then working to face any fear and doubt with courage and resolve.

Mantra #1

This week I will look for a moment of clarity and revelation in some part of my life that needs repair

At times the parts of our live that need repair are things that we may have done. Arguments we had, mistakes we make at home or at work may plague us. If there is a lingering or a festering open sore that is running through our daily lives, we need to not simply patch it, but to explore ways to resolve and heal. This comes through silent prayer and meditation at times. And then there are ways to seek help from those who are healers and can guide us to a resolution. We need to look for the moments of clarity, and for light to break through when we need to have a clear mind and an open heart to heal our wounds.

 Mantra # 2

Today I will honor the content of my character and those that I admire the most for their strong characters

Dr. King spoke of a time in the future when people would look at his children and see through to the content of their characters, rather than to judge them from the color of their skin. When we look through our own skins, and into our hearts, we alone can judge the content of our character. We need to be able to have pride in the decisions we make, and in the paths that we choose in life. They may not lead to large salaries or impressive titles, but Dr. King spoke of a time when God will be the final judge of our characters and will know what is true in our hearts. We can use the strength of those who came before us to realize the dynamic power of truth and goodness and the work we can do to make our lives and the lives of others better each day.

Mantra # 3

I am grateful each day for the goodness that surrounds me. I will cultivate joy & practice Gratitude as I recharge in silence to face the world

When we look around us, often there is nothing but strife and turmoil and dark news that is shown on our TV screens and seen on the Internet every day. When we look around us, let’s be mindful some days of the good things that surround us. There are people who work to help others, and those who have given us a helping hand in our own lives. We can learn to practice gratitude and to cultivate an attitude not only of gratitude, but one of cultivating joy when we sit back in quiet moments to recharge. We can pledge then to find the things that matter most in our lives and then bask in the joy of the moment.


Mantra # 4

My spirit and my soul within is the all-powerful healer in my life. Each day I will center my thoughts and be aware of the energy I create when I share my time & talents

We can do great things when we listen to our inner voice and gather strength that we didn’t know we had! When we find that happy place, and some degree of calm in our own inner sanctum, we can use that spiritual energy as a source to heal and to create great things. We need to be aware of our own powers to create and to move mountains when we focus enough to share that talent.

Mantra # 5

I will seek answers to the hardest questions I face when I am still & quiet, in meditation & in prayer.

There are times when we need to just be alone and to face the toughest questions that we may have been avoiding. When we find that moment of stillness, in a quiet room or at night when we can gather our thoughts and meditate, then the nature of the problem can take on a new context. There are things we may see, or people we may seek out, and there is wisdom to be had when we realize we are not alone, even in our darkest moments.

Mantras that help to motivate you during times of trouble and for even ordinary days will help guide you and keep you focused on the things that matter in your life. Join us for Monday Mojo each week as we discover the value of using the mantras for spiritual guidance and support throughout the year!
