What are mantras actually?
A mantra is a small saying, a positive sentence or just a single word that you repeat out loud or in your mind ...
Mantras have been used for millennia to help create a positive state of mind and focus on one's goals.
In Hinduism and Buddhism in particular, mantras are used in prayers and are often sung, as the regular rhythm of the singing increases the effect.
In this country too, mantras - also called affirmations - are becoming increasingly popular.
But what effect do mantras actually have?

What do mantras do?
Mantras are very powerful. They will help you ...
So mantras have a very positive effect on you and your life!
But how does it work, what is the secret behind these sentences and sayings?
Is it all nonsense or what? How mantras really work
Mantras have a very powerful effect. However, I used to think:
"What is that supposed to achieve? Just because I say a few nice sayings to myself doesn't make my life any better! "
Fortunately, I've now understood how effective these mantras can be if you get involved ...
How exactly mantras work, I want to explain to you with this diagram:
Every thought creates a path in your brain. The more you think the same thought, the wider this path in your head becomes.
Since your brain is a really lazy sock and likes to go the most comfortable way, it of course prefers to use the broad ways, i.e. the usual thoughts.
What does that mean in concrete terms for you and your life?
If you often have negative thoughts (such as worries, self-doubt, fears, anger, etc.), then the paths to them in your head become wider and wider.
That means: Your brain uses these paths more and more often. In other words, your negative thoughts / worries / fears / doubts etc. become MORE.
The problem with it: Negative thoughts lead to a negative life, as the following diagram shows very well:
Now the big quiz question:
How do we change this now? How do we manage to have more happy, joyful, confident, empowering and positive thoughts so that our lives become happier, happier and more positive?
Here comes the answer:
You have to create new paths in your brain. "Positive" ways!
But as you have already seen in the first diagram, it is unfortunately of no use to just think a positive thought once or twice. You have to think it often and repeat it often so that the path in your head widens and your brain thinks in these structures more often.
And that's exactly what mantras will help you with!
How to best use mantras in everyday life
You don't have to meditate for hours every day and sing your mantra to yourself ...
You can use mantras at any time on the side in everyday life, for example when driving or cleaning your apartment.
By the way, did you know that up to 90% of your thoughts repeat themselves over and over again? So you have - without even realizing it - mantras in your head all your life anyway. Most of the time, however, these are more negative than positive and consciously selected.
And that's exactly what we're changing now!

How to find your personal mantra
Using mantras is basically very simple. However, so that they can develop their full effect, I recommend the following procedure:
- Focus on ONE area of life that you want to improve (there is no point trying to change all areas of life at the same time. When you renovate your house, you also start with ONE room ... Below you will find mantra examples from 10 different areas of life.)
- Pick out ONE mantra that you like spontaneously (also applies here: less is more. Think about your brain: wanting to create 5 paths at the same time is more strenuous and takes longer than focusing on ONE path.)
- Repeat your mantra several times a day (You can say it out loud or think quietly to yourself. You can also sing it, then it will be even stronger - more on this in the next section.)
Frequent repetition is the be-all and end-all of mantras! And most of the time, that's where most people fail. They think about their mantra for 1-2 days, but then forget about it.
So that this doesn't happen to YOU, here are some tips and tricks that help me to remember my mantra every day ...
How to make your mantra work for you every day
The more you think about your mantra, the faster it works.
In the beginning, you should repeat the same mantra for about 30 days. Because only after about 30 days is a new path in your brain so wide that it can be used reliably. Then your thoughts take this path automatically without you consciously thinking about it.
However, if you stop your mantra after 5 or 10 days, your brain will immediately revert to old (negative) thought paths and your mantra will not work.
So in the beginning you have to actively remember your mantra again and again.
The following tricks will help you think about your mantra more often and anchor it in your brain faster:
- Visualize the mantra: The best memories are still those good old sticky notes that you can distribute anywhere in your home or at work. Or you can use the modern version and save your mantra as a background image or as a recurring reminder on your mobile phone.
- Sing mantra: Have you ever had a song or a melody as a catchy tune? Then you know it's hard to get rid of. You can use this principle when you chant your mantra. It doesn't matter whether you sing out loud or just in your mind. Should you have a catchy tune anyway, just use your mantra as the text for this melody ...
- Write mantra: You can also write your mantra by hand several times a day. By writing, you use several areas of the brain and the new path of thought in your head emerges faster.
- Paint mantra: Combine your mantra with the meditative effect of mandalas. Painting mandalas is calming and relaxed and if you think, recite or sing your mantra at the same time, it will anchor itself in your head in record time. Here you will find a few mandalas to print out and draw on: Mantra mandalas
So, now you are equipped with all the information and tips and the only thing you are missing now are your mantras.
