Mantras are a practical way to achieve desired states of consciousness because they work beyond the conscious mind, so the problem of chasing our own tail isn't an issue. Which is why I primarily use them as my 'spiritual practice' and yeah they do bring results. The time depending on each individual's personal progress and the dedication.
The only thing is dedicating to chanting them and giving them your full attention, which can be challenging because of an over active mind, but nothing that can't be overcome without a little will power.
I haven't used the kleem mantra, but I've read testimonials from people who have and they've been positive.

Hi wachusettgirl! I have done a lot of work with this type of mantra/chanting. I find it to be very soothing at times when I want my mind to be quiet but have difficulty getting there by way of regular quiet meditation. I especially like books/audio by Thomas Ashley-Farrand (find info on his site here ). He was great for seeing the practice from a Western perspective, but he was also very knowledgeable in Eastern philosophy. He explains things in a way that makes a lot of sense to me! I keep his book, Healing Mantras, on my shelf at all times, I like to refer to it.
I also really like the Kirtan tradition, which is mantra set to music. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Krishna Das, also a Westerner, and amazing. This is my favorite track, very soothing.
Mantra meditation works the same as visualization, helping to focus your mind on what you desire, removing the thinking function so it seeps into your subconscious.
Good luck! I hope you find the perfect mantra
