When I first learned The Secret a year ago, I was encouraged to begin a daily meditation practice. I had never meditated, so I started with just three minutes a
day. I didn't know how to meditate, so I began by taking a suggestion made in The Secret. The book recommends repeating a mantra that goes as follows, "I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious, and happy."
As I focused on these words for a few minutes a day, I thought closely to what each one of them means. I want to share them in case they are helpful to you. In fact, I begin my meditation practice daily with this mantra and try to expand on the words each time so they are meaningful to me.
- As I sit, I begin to think I am whole. I am complete. I am united. I am one.
- I am perfect. I am perfect today, yesterday and tomorrow. I am in a constant state of perfection in every moment in time.
- Then I continue with I am strong. I am strong in my mind, emotions, body, and spirit.
- I am powerful in mind and body. I am powerful to choose my own happiness and make my own decisions that are the best for me.
- I am loving towards myself and my neighbor. I show honor and respect to myself and the people around me.
- I am harmonious in my mind, body and spirit. I am harmonious with the people around me and the nature around me each day.
- I am healthy. My mind and body grow and heal and develop naturally so my body can continue to heal itself. I added this one because I believe we all strive for perfect health.
- I am happy. I choose to be happy in this moment and in the future. I practice the art of allowing and choose to be happy regardless of my circumstances. If I feel resistance towards anything, I can turn the other way and make a new choice.
I listen to these words daily and they help me connect with my inner-self more closely so I can hear the voice of my intuition and spirit speaking me. I've learned and continue to learn and hear this voice more strongly each day as it guides me to greater stages of perfection and more heightened awareness.
I encourage you to have or grow your meditation practice for all of its fruitful benefits because you can!
