Peace Mantra

The dream that won’t let me fall back asleep in this lifetime is to #teachpeace

So today try a reciting a peace #mantra like

“Om Mani Padme Hum”

Or

Shanti shanti shanti

Peace peace peace

 

Repeat 108 times or for 10-15 minutes

According to Harvard medical school, Of the many different meditation techniques being taught today, mantra meditation is one of the most highly effective in terms of increasing happiness, well being and health. And of the highly effective meditation techniques, mantra meditation is by far the easiest to learn and practice.

You learn to meditate by meditating. The silence and stillness you experience in meditation and the increased happiness and diminished stress you experience outside meditation are so attractive and welcomed that you naturally teach yourself how to go deeper into that silence and stillness each time you meditate.

To meditate you sit comfortably and quietly with your eyes closed and effortlessly and silently inside repeat a word or a short phrase called a mantra. Your mantra can be any word, sound, prayer or short phrase you like that is in your native language.

Continue repeating your mantra in that same simple, effortless way for 10-30 minutes. That repetition may not be a clear pronunciation of your mantra but instead may be just a faint idea of it.  As you continue thinking your mantra, thoughts and distractions will come, and that’s fine; having thoughts during meditation is natural. When thoughts and distractions do come just gently return to thinking your mantra in the same simple, effortless way as thoughts come. Choose the amount of time you meditate based on what suits you.

It’s important to not strain to make the mantra come, but rather to relax into effortlessness and let the mantra come in the same simple, effortless way as thoughts come. If you strain to make the mantra come that can create stress that tires you.

Avoid looking for experiences or signs of progress or failure with your meditation because that hinders meditation. Just be confident that after some time you will start to notice the benefits of meditating during your day. You may be happier, feeling more at ease and calmer, and getting along better with others. You may start noticing these benefits soon, or it may take up to six months of meditating regularly before you start to notice these benefits. So just get in the habit of meditating regularly and then stick with it. And be patient with yourself – if you stop meditating for a day or two, just go back and start meditating again.

Key to Happiness Alchemy of Balance

Each day, I ask myself “How do I maintain balance in order to live my best day ever?” As much as I try to stay balanced, I have learned that I can easily lose it.

Chanting, or using rhythmic speaking or singing of words and sounds is a great way to find balance. Om Namah Shivaya is my favorite mantra to repeat. During and after singing this song I feel a quiet but energized sense of equilibrium. And I learned that the elements and chakras are the syllables of Na, Ma, Shi, Va, Ya.

Om Namah Shivaya mantra uses the universal elements that govern each chakra: earth, water, fire, air, and ether. This song allows the chakras to better utilize the fundamental elements that exist in the chakra. When we repeat this mantra, we bring the chakras into balance with our energies. If you need a real time life balance exercise try saying or singing 108 rounds of this mantra, or even just a few.

This mantra also reminds us that we are born perfect (siddha), whole, and balanced. Our only job in this lifetime is to remember how AMAZING WE ARE! What you are experiencing through your journey as a human being is a return to balance where your energies are neither excessive nor deficient, but even.

Even your hands hold the reminder within them as each finger is aligned with an element and a chakra like this:

thumb = Fire Solar Plexus Chakra

first finger = Air Heart Chakra

middle finger = Ether Throat chakra

ring finger = Earth Root Chakra

pinky finger = Water Sacral Chakra

Love yourself, love your day, love your life! Silvia

My New Normal

3 years ago I chose to embrace a “new normal” after TBI. Thank goddess for my mindfulness meditation practice, faith in Divine love, mantra, singing and high happiness set point. 🙏💚

I’ve always loved the physicality of the asana because achievement seems visible, while at the same time 99% of “the work” is invisible. This saved my spirit from collapsing under the weight of the #NewNormal.

My progress in recovery is challenging to observers because I look healthy on the outside. Because my injury is invisible people assume I am fine. From the outside looking in it’s hard to understand. From the inside looking out, it’s hard to explain. Meanwhile on a daily basis I have to navigate more speed bumps than I had to before in my old life. 

Think about what a speed bump requires you to do? Slow down.

It takes me longer. Still does. You have no ideas how much effort I have to put into all that I do as compared to before.  I am processing, just more slowly. I’m high functioning, but slower. My new normal has given me an enhanced opportunity, a gift to #BePresent. I am more grounded.

And of all the things I don’t miss about the old me, the triple A personality pitta powered push thru it mentality, is the breakneck speed at which I was living life. 

This is not a race. 

It certainly isn’t a sprint to the finish line if we’re lucky. Life, if lived gently paced, is a marathon.

Calm is my Superhero power. 

This foot behind the head pose looks easy. The truth is it took a long time to get here. What’s visible today was for many years invisible.

And sometimes what’s invisible is visible if you lean in and see thru the eyes of your heart and less so with your mind.

Today, I ask myself, what is right there in front of me that I’m not seeing? What is possible for me? Do I have the patience to look more deeply?

Yoga makes the invisible world visible and the visible world invisible. It works it’s magic both ways.

Love yourself, love your day, love your life!

Third Chakra Mantra by Yoganonymous

Third Chakra ‪#‎Mantra‬:
-May I express who I am without fear

“We have no reason to harbor any mistrust against our world, for it is not against us. It has terrors, they are our terrors. If there are dangers at hand, we must try to love them. And if only we arrange our life according to that principle which counsels us that we must always hold to the difficult, then that which now still seems to us the most alien will become our most intimate and trusted experience.” – Rainer Maria Rilke

“If this chakra isn’t working properly you may you feel as though the world is against you and everything is out of your control.”
– By Silvia Mordini, Life Inspired Happiness Coach published by YOGANONYMOUS

CHAKRA_3

I accept I receive I surrender

‪#‎Spiritual‬ ‪#‎Alchemy‬ – Ishvara Pranidhana
“As we are doing the poses and watching, we let go of the ego of judgment. We move beyond wanting life to be different and begin to feel the ‪#‎surrender‬ and ‪#‎acceptance‬ of the natural flow of the present moment. We understand that there is no reason to stop this flow for its natural current is to align with the current of grace that is everywhere outside us. Beauty becomes our way of life. ‪#‎Happiness‬ becomes our natural alchemy once again.”
– Silvia Mordini, Life Inspired Happiness Coach

5th Chakra
ETHER (Vishudha): Communicating to the universe our wisdom learned from the heart with clarity and truth. To open the heart and surrender to love we must have a strong knowing of our truth.

6th Chakra
(Ajna): We open up through the third eye in order to sink back as the observer of our being. As we do this, all negative thoughts and egoistic tendencies dissolve and we return back to stillness, happiness, and love. We surrender to the guidance of our inner wisdom and know that all the answers we seek lie within us.

7th Chakra
(Sahasrara): The flow of grace all around us flows through us from an open crown chakra. We become the embodiment of the Divine, a unique expression of consciousness, dwelling in our natural alchemy of love and peace.

Monday Mantra There is No Need to Struggle

‪#‎Monday‬ ‪#‎Mantra‬ by Silvia Mordini, Life Inspired Happiness Coach

**Instant peace and calmness came over me while I practiced reciting this mantra to myself: “THERE IS NO NEED TO STRUGGLE.”

Ask yourself right now, “Can you live with what life is offering you?” When we find neutrality in our mind we let go of judgment about what is happening. We no longer fight against the now. Instead, we save our strength and behave with compassion towards those people and circumstances we cannot control.**

How to Boost Your Confidence in Abundance

Wayne was shy, overweight, and popping dozens of pills every day to deal with chronic back pain. He was quickly losing touch with himself. In December of 2011, he decided he was sick of it all and signed up for a Yoga Retreat almost a year away. He had never taken a single yoga class at this point.

He felt this was the answer to building confidence in himself and the possibility that he could change his life. He went to a yoga class. It was hot. He sweat. A lot. He could only do a few of the poses. But he enjoyed the challenge, and so he returned the next day. He stayed near the back so as not to be recognized. And he kept showing up.

As his confidence grew so did his belief in abundance. He was proof that you get more than one chance to do your life.

When Wayne arrived on my Alchemy Tours Yoga Retreat in Hawaii October 2012, and had left the old version of himself behind. He had practiced six days a week for nearly a year and lost over 35 lbs! He is the most energetic, friendly, upbeat outgoing person you will meet. And he doesn’t take one pill.

It is easy to get overwhelmed and think we are never going to get better. We can easily become paralyzed with seeing the world as unforgiving or lacking enough goodness for all of us.

IMG_1291A tantric view is one of seeing the good and believing that there is more than enough to go around. This means living from a paradigm of abundance.

The truth is the world is really a mirror of what we think of it. If you believe in abundance, then you are surrounded by prosperity and abundance.

It’s happened to all of us…. scarcity mentality, where we feel like we don’t have “enough.” Enough of what? Well, first of all, time. Then everything else.
Yoga can heal our relationship to abundance.

Your practice may include invoking Lakshmi, the goddess of Abundance and Prosperity through mantra, meditation, and setting intention. It is important to recognize that we are not asking for prevention of hardship. Instead, we are asking that we believe we have enough to persevere.

” Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers,
but to be fearless in facing them.
Let me not beg for the stilling of my pain,
but for the heart to conquer it.
Let me not crave in anxious fear to be saved,
but for the patience to win my freedom.”
Shantideva

And remember don’t beat yourself up if you fall back into the old habit of catastrophizing. Keep at it! As Wayne says, the worst thing that happened to him was that he had to buy an entirely new wardrobe! Love yourself, love your day, love your life! Silvia

For Journaling:
What are you ready to receive more of?
How will you manage all of this new abundance?
