Create Your Very Own Mantra
“Mantras are energy which can be likened to fire. Fire can cook your lunch or burn down the forest.”
A mantra is a short group of reaffirming words that can help center your mind and transform your life. Words have power BUT you have the power to choose the words you speak to yourself.
Choose positive, affirming, inspiring words as your life mantra! Words have power. Words can inspire us to achieve our greatest potential or words can awaken our biggest fears.
Some examples of mantras include:
* I am strong and I can get through this.
