Mantras

Leave a comment

Mantras are sometimes referred to as sacred utterances repeated frequently. This form of self talk is often a powerful influence in our thinking and being that nurtures our body, mind and spirit.

I often searching for new mantras at certain times in my life. Here are some mantras from Ruth Wilson:

Focus on beauty rather than profit.
Be serious about not taking things too serious.
Travel light; leave all the junk behind.
Cut the ropes that tie you down.
Hang out a welcome sign for new realities.

Here are some mantras I frequently use:

Speak the Gospel and sometimes use words (St Francis of Assisi).
Choose joy.
Connect the human story to the divine story.
What is God enabling and requiring me to do?
Imagine the possibilities.
