Do you use mantras?
I'm interested in finding out whether anyone uses mantras on here, whether it be for LOA purposes or spiritual grounding and expansion. If so, have they affected your lives in any way.
I haven't personally, but I thought you might find this thread interesting.
Do you consider affirmations mantras in the context of what you ask, or are you referring simply to mantras in meditation?
Angelique, merci. I will most definitely give that a go. :)
I suppose more in the sense of actual mantras (Hinduism I believe?)
Would you consider both similar.
I wanted to basically know if anyone finds that the mantras do indeed hold a power of their own rather than as in affirmations, we intend that power.. not too sure if I'm getting my point across properly :rolleyes: ...
There is no doubt in my mind that words have power. Spoken words contain vibrational power within themselves. In this regard, hearing poetry and lyrics recited can cause us to experience tremendous emotions. But, as you correctly note, even absent any power of vibration in a word, we invest power in words. For example, the words: "turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes, a warm fireplace" can make us feel warm, safe, and loved. However, ultimately, there may be no meaningful distinction between the inherent power of a written or spoken word (i.e., its vibration upon being read or spoken) and the power of words generally, owing to their invested meaning. That is to say, they both affect us profoundly. As such, whether the effect of words stems from their inherent vibratory power or from their invested meaning may not be significant.
Please consider the excellent work of Masaru Emoto. Emoto pioneered a scientific project, wherein he photographed water crystals after the water from which they were formed was exposed to written messages taped on water bottles or music played on loudspeakers near the bottled water. He pioneered this project upon the hypothesis that water stores information received, long after the information has been removed. In his experiments, he observed that crystals forming from water that was exposed to kind or loving words or classical music formed in a beautiful shape, while words exposed to mean words or violent-sounding music formed in an "ugly" or broken shape. You can learn more about this from his book, The Hidden Messages in Water. The subject is quite fascinating.
Aside from the written word, the spoken word derives power from the fact that it is based on vibration. We could agree that chanting, (e.g., Gregorian Chants and Buddhist Chants) impart vibrational frequencies which have a reality to their own. Instrumental music is the same way, apart from the beauty of a musical composition. Doesn't the mere sound of a French Horn or an Oboe just haunt your very soul? It does to me. Musical instruments use no words, but their sounds affect us in profound ways. That that should inform one that the timbre of sound (its tonal quality) also imparts a power.
With this in mind, consider that mantras are simply sound vibrations (which vary in slight ways from person to person, based on the timbre of their voice). It is said that the word "om" is considered to cause vibratory effects that cause positive effects on the body, whether opening up chakras or making the mind resonate with the overall frequency of the sound.
This theory is not far-fetched by any stretch of the imagination because science teaches us that ALL is vibration in the world--objects, sights, sounds--everything. There are no solid objects, but only vibrating subatomic particles or packets of information. Sight is frequency of light registered in the brain, from the eyes. Sound is frequency of air waves registered in our brains, from the ears. Touch is the magnetic "push-back" of electromagnetism (a vibration) registered in the brain, from our kinesthetic senses. Besides this complicated explanation, don't you find that certain words just "sound pretty"--without regard to their meaning? For example, the word "bliss" is a beautiful-sounding word. The word "strife" or "angst" seem more "biting" in their sound.
Food for thought. :)
all quite true, thank you for the thorough thought.
What you described there is very much in sync with what I'm reading at the moment, "The Subtle Body: an Encyclopedia of your Energetic Anatomy" very interesting read for a thorough explanation of the works in energy systems. So I get what you're saying. I guess haha I'm trying out mantras now and think or believe that I've had shifts happen in my life in the past thanks to these but they never were quite a full creation and seemed to fall short or get twisted in the end for the situation at hand. I guess I'm still holding on to this belief that the mantras themselves have these added on energies that intertwine with mine for LOA purposes and maybe the belief is the key.
Has anybody had success using the "Kleem" mantra or other mantras given by Dattatreya Siva Baba?? He was Wayne Dyer's guru
What is the magic in KLEEEM
Kleem, Kleem, Kleeem, Kleeeeem -
And the mantra worked.
I don't know how this mantra worked and on what basis.
I was devoid of a social life to an extent because I was very choosy befriending people of a special type and whose presence made me happy.
I was always wanting to meet people from whom I could learn something to take back home.
And whenever I met with an occassion that I was invited to by some acquaintance or a friend I was always trying to get the best out of that meeting or a party to feel I had not lost time with frivilous placements like a glass of wine in my hand and bullshitting about all and sundry during the party.
I was fed up of all these stupidities and came across the Kleeeeem mantra and decided to give it a try for the heck of it.
And a month later I was so much filled up with social dates and functions.... even the professional ones that I said to my self... what the ....is happening. I was in high spirits and feeling great.
After every occassion or even during the party I would send a vibration of gratitude to the Universe and say THANK YOU for allowing me this meeting.
I suggest you use Kleeeeem if you want to get involved socially and have many friends.
Kleem and Gratitude go well together.
Try it for 30 days.
By golly...the Kleeeeem mantra works.
However could somebody tell me what Kleem means.
I would feel that it is a power word that swings inside the friendship arena of life and therefore all that's nice happens.
Please let me have your answers as what is Kleem to mean.
I've used the KLEEM mantra although I am female, and typically this specific mantra is used in attracting someone for a relationship/friendship and specifically it is typically used in attracting female energies. I wanted more of a masculine energy at the time but gave it a shot. Instead of chanting them I wrote them down 108 times daily and chanted them at the same time (w/ a pencil=earth element) I dunno lol I incorporated that in and well it certainly did work for me this past summer my social life was crazy and full and I did attract masculine energy which was kinda the purpose. But if you are female it is said that you should use the AIM mantra (eye-im) apparently it's better suited, just a side note here. So yes I believe this mantra worked wonders for me and I've read many great testimonials from others. So it is a very attention grabbing filling social life type of mantra. :)
Kleem by CD
Responding to the mantra KLEEM - 108 times at a time in one sitting.
Does one have to say the word Kleem herself or can one hear the word
being said a 108 times via a CD recording.
Is this then effective and will it do the work as a beej mantra....?
- from experience, I used the KLEEM mantra on it's own, and it has given me results. if you go online and research the mantra you'll see people saying that it's best to recite it on your own, I believe the same. You could either recite KLEEM silently in your head 108x or out loud, and even choose to write it down 108x while reciting it in your head or out loud to elevate the vibration. You can listen to a recording and recite it in your head as well but maybe that would be kinda like leaning on a wall it's not the full effect. Ultimately, whichever gives you most passion/emotions and makes you feel like you've experienced the meditation.
I use mantras and they do work. Whether we hear them, write or chant them, it all boils down to shutting the mind as much as possible and give the sound vibrations the fullest attention possible. Mantras might be an "easy road" for we don't chase our own tail - they're pure vibration - they're still a meditative practice though so they must be treated that way for their full power to unleash. I think that if chanting with full concentration and dedication for at least some time, I see no reason why a mantra shouldn't bring results.
