Why are mantras so powerful?

By Anthony O'Flynn

You have probably tried meditation. How did it go? Did you learn a traditional technique or did you go for the latest craze backed by the wonderful wisdom of the new age?

Meditation techniques can vary wildly depending on their source of origin and the outcome or effects will also differ. It is important to select an authentic meditation that will generate a genuine transformation. Today phrases are thrown around like ‘ raise your vibration’ but how do you exactly do that?

A Tantric practice

Mantras are directly linked to the Tantric path. The use of mantras has been verified repeatedly by seekers over thousands of years. Some teachers even consider mantras to be the most powerful of all meditation techniques. The word mantra has crept into pop-culture and is now an everyday word. Yet mantras originated in India.

The power of the mantra

The power of the mantra is both in the repetition and the structure of the mantra itself. The language of the mantra is the key to its power. Mantras are from the Sanskrit language. This sacred language has a very elevated frequency. By repeating the mantra the meditator creates a resonance with the vibration of the mantra. The union or fusion with the practitioner and the frequency that the mantra embodies, produces the consciousness that is related to the mantra. The repetition deepens the resonance as the practitioner merges with this sacred vibration as the transformation through this fusion becomes apparent.

Spectrum of consciousness

Mantras have a range of applications and can produce a multitude of effects across the spectrum of consciousness. The states that can be created include increased clarity and calmness of the mind, inner peace, harmony, compassion, an altered relationship to space and time, unconditional love, self-confidence, self-acceptance, increased will-power, intuition, pure awareness and many many others.

Join us at the Easter retreat where you will receive an initiation in a mantra that will transform your inner world and provide you with a powerful meditation technique that you can use for the rest of your life.
