12 Days of Giveaways: Mala Collective
On the fifth day of December, Mala Collective gave me to me the Prana Mala!

Prana is in everyone. In ancient Sanskrit, it literally translates to "vital life." It's the energy we have to live, breathe, dream and manifest our intentions. We love the Prana Mala for its ability to help us free our internal prana and promote vital energy.

Entering to win is easy!

This is a bit of an unusual one but I find it helps me to focus and humbles my practice. “You are safe here, I will take care of you” Afterwards there are a lot less thoughts running around in my head :)

I chant ‘Rum’ which calms and centres me during my meditation. I successfully am up to 20 minutes twice a day and can see the positive impact meditation has on every aspect of my life. I would love to have the gorgeous Prana Mala! Namaste.

Recently I started doing a mediation to Lakshmi for spiritual and material wealth and prosperity, “Om shee maha lakshmyei namaha”. I chose this mantra to generate gratitude for the wealth and prosperity going on in my life, and to raise the vibration.

Oh there are so many mantras I love depending on what energy I would like to connect with. I have a mantra given to me by my teacher and use that most of the time. In my most recent 40 day practice for the holiday season I have simply been chanting Shanti. Its amazing how peaceful I feel after 108 sweet Shanti’s. Namaste.

Lori said:

My favorite mantra is hreem. It was the mantra that chose me . It is hard to describe the connection I feel for this resonating, undulating sound. I wanted to choose a pretty or meaningful mantra but “hreem” kept creeping into my meditation and showed me that sometimes, in spite of our best intentions and in spite of our egoic mind, the answers are already within us if only we listen.

Lorraine S said:

My favorite mantra is, Om Namo Bhagavate Vasudevaya, beautifully translated as, I honor (bow) the devine energy which sustains me—that is namely, love. It’s a mantra for Japa, which also sounds beautiful when chanted, deeply rooted in me while studying to be a yoga teacher.

Namaste.

Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu

May all beings everywhere be happy and free, and may the thoughts, words, and actions of my own life contribute in some way to that happiness and to that freedom for all.

I like sat nam.

Maribaby2u said:

The mantra is “Om shree maha lakshmyei namaha”. After my vinyasa yoga practice, I say the mantra, “Lokha samastah sukhino bhavantu” which means, “May all living things be happy and free from suffering”. Inviting more love, happiness, freedom, gratitude and compassion into our daily lives can only have a positively exponential impact on our lives and in the world.

I love the mantra: Om Gam Ganapataye Namaha. It is a mantra of Lord Ganesh and has the power to remove all evil and obstacles that prevent you from reaching your goals.

Namaste

Anna K said:

I have made a habit of chanting the Gayatri Mantra.
Aum
Bhuh Bhuvah Svah
Tat Savitur Varenyam
Bhargo Devasya Dheemahi
Dhiyo Yo nah Prachodayat
Somehow it always comforts me and makes me realize that there is something greater out there then I can ever fathom. When things are out of my control, I hold onto this prayer.

mine is through love and light I expect miracles

Angie

Angie said:

My mantra is – “I am enough” It reminds me to give myself in all that I do; without worrying I need to be more than I am. I strive to be better, but in this moment, I am enough.

My favorite mantra is short and sweet: breathe.
