Your Pranadi Mala necklace is a beautiful and meaningful piece. It can be enjoyed for its beauty and influence as well as being a great aid to meditation if you so wish. Meditation allows us to rest our mind and body, an escape from a busy life full of distractions. When using for meditation travel bead by bead around your mala, use whatever method works for you as this is your practice, your time and your space.
A Secular Mantra
Use a simple mantra of “Light, Love, Peace” as you travel around your mala, bead by beautiful bead. On the first bead after the guru bead, say Light. On the second, say Love and on the third say Peace. Continue around your mala necklace, reflecting on the meanings to you behind each of these three simple words, this process is simple but holds deep, personal meaning to each of us. When you get to the guru bead, point it outward and say, “Light all around and within, shine from my heart. Love all around and within, shine from my heart. Peace all around and within, shine from my heart.” Hold your beads between your hands in prayer position.
Two Yogic Mantras
The first mantra is called Har. Repeat Har over and over on each bead, breath by breath. Despite the simplicity of this one syllable word, Har invokes abundance, prosperity, energy and is the key that opens the heart. To pronounce Har correctly; the short ‘a’ in Har is like the ‘u’ in ‘hut’. When pronouncing the ‘r’, strike the upper palate of your mouth with the tip of your tongue – this stimulates certain meridian points to aid in the effectiveness of this yogic mantra.
The second mantra is for purification and rejuvenation. Chant Sat Nam on each bead. Sat is truth, Nam is identify. Chanting Sat Nam eliminates negative thought patterns. Sat is pronounced like ‘hut’; Nam is pronounced like “calm”. Let your tongue strike your upper palate of the mouth just behind your two front teeth on Sat, pulling in the naval quickly as you say it. Nam is light, like a breath out. Reciting this mantra will change the mindset to enhance your higher virtues.
Everything is the Self
“We come to know directly that everything is the Self with Self playing all of the roles for her own delight. Since there is nothing here but Shiva nature, there is nothing to escape other than our limited experience of Reality. Through the practice of direct realization in Tantra, we want to emerge from our limited experience and come to embody the full glory of the Self. We realize that we are this pervasive consciousness and energy. We rest contentedly in our nature and enjoy our own infinite display.”
With a personal affirmation, you channel your consciousness into a positive state so that you can make changes within yourself for the better. Think of a personal affirmation as your psychic best friend, the one who pulls you away from an unhealthy situation, hugs you when you’ve done well and simply shares in your good fortune. You can create personal affirmations for all the situations in your life. Simply tapping into your creative energy to create the mantra begins the process by which you can realise its outcome.
