I know, I know, posting something about mantras is pretty hippie-dippy of me right? But bare with me.

I feel some change in the works in my life – all of which is great – but I can feel it coming and I know it is out there. I have been searching for some aspects of my life  to change and it seems like I am headed in the right direction.

I was speaking with a friend recently and she reminded me that sometimes we don’t feel worthy. Which is exactly how I feel sometimes – you know like you have made it this far in life and are not sure how or when you are going to get caught?  After our conversation she sent some mantras that really resonated with me. Feel free to ignore or stop reading, but I feel like there are a couple of you who might like these:

  • Action conquers fear.
  • Be bold.
  • Fortune favors the brave.
  • I will be led by my dreams.
  • I will be fueled by passion.

My favorite is #3  - Fortune favors the brave. I love it and need to remind myself of this idea – that nothing good is going to happen unless you have the heart to take that chance.

Also – she sent this Ted talk – it is about 20 minutes but really poignant and entertaining.

Over and out from Amanda, the hippie.

    I actually started a mantra group where we say a mantra at 8/12/8 during the day. There is 7 of us and the first day I sold a piece of art for $200. We have manifested some pretty positive things so far and we have yet to all meet. It started out as an experiment 4 weeks ago and now we are going to keep going. So I understand the power of mantras!

        Yes! And our collective belief in ourselves and the group. We have a member who WAS sick and hasn’t felt so good in years. We have a member that was laid off in the morning and after our 12 pm mantra was called back because they supposedly mistook her for someone else. I realize that its not (although we want to keep it positive) about anything but belief. And thank you for giving me a forum to share my thoughts. And if your interested in Mantra-ing with us let me know because we can use all the positive people who believe that we can! Take care.

    I’ve been chanting the maha mrityunjaya mantra lately….very fiery and wonderful for transformation! Mantra is so beautiful and powerful and I love that it doesn’t have to be in Sanskrit… it can be a simple positive affirmation :)
