Mantra comes from the Sanskrit word meaning a “sacred message or text, charm, spell, counsel.” The word mantra is said to come from a root meaning, “that which protects the mind”.  A mantra is used in meditation and can also be used for mind protection.

The word mantra can be broken down into two parts: “man” which means mind, and “tra,” which means transport or vehicle.  So literally a mantra is a vehicle to transport the mind.


I use mantras all the time.  To me it is like setting my intention of how I want to approach things in life. I have a number of mantras that I use for mind protection and to transport my mind.  My favourite mantra is, “Believe you can and you will!” It has a positive intention to succeed with what you started, no matter what.

I’m wondering what you say to yourself at times when things are not working out for you. Do you have mantras and affirmations that help you move forward? Do share your mantras.

Behaviours are what we do with our emotions. Between what is said and not

meant, and what is meant and not said, most of the love is lost.

Change makes change.

Don’t want” does not lead to what you do want.  Focus on what you want.

Every behaviour has a positive intention and is useful in some context.

Gratitude is the antidote to fear and anger.

Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at

someone. Who gets burnt first?
