These 5 Morning Mantras Will Transform Your Day

Our brains are just like a light switch. When we’re “off” we don’t see much . . . but when we’re “on” we see everything: the positivity, possibilities, potential, and perspective. Every so often, we need a tool to help us harness our “on” power for better focus and enhanced internal connection. 
 
Mantras – in addition to meditation and conscious breathing – are ways to internalize and harness your positive consciousness . . . your true nature!
 
A mantra is a word or sound meant to be chanted aloud or repeated silently in order to enhance concentration in meditation. Mantras are a positive point of concentration that allow us to be truly present, silencing the noise in our lives and allowing us to be present.
 
Using mantras in the morning sets a tone for how you’ll view and respond to the world throughout the day. Morning mantras set a positive intention for where your focus and energy should be, empowering you to maintain that mindset throughout the day. Mantras are also a great tool for your meditation practice, especially if you’re just starting out.

These 5 Morning Mantras Will Ignite Your Consciousness and Empower Your Day with Positivity:

 

1. “I Exist”

Repeat “I exist” during your morning meditation to help harness your ability to identify your self-existence. This mantra is a great way to boost self-awareness and self-esteem. It’s also a great reminder of the interconnectedness of all things.
 
As you start to chant or silently say to yourself I exist, you are activating your present moment awareness of yourself and all that you are. Use this mantra when you’re feeling defeated, under-appreciated, or needing the reminder that we are all connected.
 

2. “I am Powerful”

By chanting “I am powerful,” you are defining your ability to control any situation. You recognize that you are in control of your reality and are able to see that your gifts and abilities fuel your internal power. Your absolute happiness lies in your power to choose positivity.
 
Notice how the mantra “I am powerful” makes you feel. As you repeat it, envision the ways that you are powerful. Use this morning mantra when you need to bring your A-game before a meeting, job interview, presentation, or an exam. This is the perfect mantra for when you need to tap into your strength, your power, and your confidence.
 

3. “I Love”

This is always a great mantra to start your day or repeat throughout. I love is a mantra that activates and aligns your Heart Chakra. Every time you exhale, bring your awareness to your heart center and envision it filling with emerald green light (the color associated with the Heart Chakra).
 
Use this mantra if you are feeling down, unloved, lonely or afraid. It’s perfect for times when you need to cultivate more love – either for yourself or people in your life.
 

 

4. “Om”

OM, Om, or AUM is the most universal mantra. When you chant “Om” you are creating a powerful sound and vibration. Ancient sages identified Om as the most elemental sound, representing infinite universal consciousness. They were (and so can you) able to hear the subtle vibrations produced by everything in nature – wind, thunder, water, and recognized that these sounds are a manifestation of spirit into matter.
 
Try chanting “Om” in the morning before getting out of bed, before and after your yoga practice, or when you spaced out, disconnected, or in need of peace and grounding. Chanting OM in the morning will help ground you before you start your day.
 

5. “I Am”

To chant “I am” is to sit with and acknowledge your divinity. I am connects you to your essence, your true Self, and all of creation. Contained within each of us is everything, and everything is expressed through us. Let the joy of being alive fill you from your fingers to your toes. Try “I am” when you first wake up to bring harmony into your day and into the world.
 

Chant Mantras for Meditation and to Set Powerful Intentions for a Beautiful Day

Chanting a morning mantra is an easy yet powerful way to invoke positivity and set an intention for a beautiful day. You have the power to control your thoughts and create your reality. Empower yourself and your day by choosing mantras that align with your needs and intention. You’ll notice a positive shift in your mood, mind state, and entire day.
